When I went to London in June, I had tea at Sketch (the famous pink restaurant – an absolute must if you plan a trip!!!), and all I could think about was how I needed a proper tea set, and how fun it would be to invite a few girlfriends over for tea, treats, and (not pictured) a bit of champagne. And so last week, that’s exactly what we did! I scooped up some delicious pastries from Martha’s Bakery (around the corner from me and so yummy), put on a pretty pink dress, and broke out my pretty new tea set from Macy’s. Macy’s has the most gorgeous collection of china (Wedgwood is my personal favorite) and they have a lot of great sales, which are the best times to stock up! I feel part like a little girl and part like a proper grown up, having grownup tea parties.
I should note that tea cups like these may seem impractical, especially if you are a Manhattan dweller with limited kitchen space, but I use mine to fancy up snacks + ice cream as well… you’d be surprised how much I use them!

This dress is everything. I feel like an emoji in it!
