{captured by} Blush and JellyWhen I think of tea parties I imagine beautiful dresses bright in color and sweet little details like charming jewels. Elegant enough for a glamorous tea party yet simple enough to enjoy the outdoors. I wanted to wear something bright, whimsical and sexy as yet another year passes and so I opted for this ASOS skater dress that has the most beautifully exposed back and detailing that is perfect for a sweet tea party. With deep set curls and diamond jewels, I wouldn’t have it any other way. And of course no tea party is complete without the company of others, so here are two other outfits inspired for a tea party with Melissa of Blush and Jelly and Monica of Cake & Lilies.
