Happy Monday! 

This past weekend I had a high tea date with some beautiful friends at Sassy Cookie in Victoria Park. I'd never been there before so it was a complete surprise but oh my gosh, it was so yummy! I just love the whole high tea experience. Getting a little dressed up, trying a few fancy teas and just pretending you're living the high life for a couple of hours! Oh I am a dreamer. But seriously, I left full and content. I also left with a sudden urge to buy a tea set. So I popped into the shops on the way home and came home with the above. I managed to reign myself in and made a sensible choice. Not quite a full set but a pretty start to my collection!

Weather wise it was a rather weird day yesterday so I opted for this long sleeve floral dress I picked up from Forever 21 a few months ago. It's one of those dresses that will you do you year-round, paired with tights and boots in the winter or wedges in the summer. I decided to tone down the boldness of the print with some simple black and gold accessories and my trusty Tory Burch Reva flats. Comfy yet sweet.
