What to Wear For Summer Tea

Happy Friday!!! I am so excited for the weekend and I am officially on summer holidays!! Yay that means I have lots of time to create some amazing content for Styled By S. I am just a little bit excited! Summertime gets hot but I still love to get dressed up and enjoy going out for tea. My mom and I love high tea. We make it a priority to spend afternoons together for tea as often as we can. We feel lucky that we have some beautiful tea salons near us that we can pop in for a lovely afternoon.

When it is a hot summer day you want to wear a light dress that you won’t be sweating in. But you also want to look pretty and appropriate for tea. My mom always made it special to go out for tea. That meant wearing a pretty dress and doing your hair a bit nicer then normal and putting on your pretty summer sandals or flats. So it would be unheard of in my house to wear cut off shorts and tank tops to tea. We like to go the traditional way and make it special.

I found this great dress at Marshalls and knew it would be perfect for summer tea. It looks lovely with jewelled sandals and these wedges. With my long legs the wedges do make the dress look shorter but it is still an appropriate length for tea.

I bet you can see how much I love tea and tea parties and high tea! What would you think about a blog post on hosting a tea party or High tea 101? I think it would be fun let me know your thoughts!
