Sipping tea and nibbling on scones is an especially feminine pastime, reminiscent of elegant ladies, sumptuous interiors, hushed voices and raised pinkies.
I do like to partake in such a scenario myself on occasion, with a preference for a cup of Earl Grey at The Tea Room, Queen Victoria Building, Sydney.
These high teas are a perfect excuse to take the kids to grand venues and hope for their best behaviour. Although I don’t get too fussed about what they want to wear, I do like to take the opportunity to dress up myself.
A beautiful dress, like the Gorman one above, is a perfect option for what to wear to a high tea. But it’s not always the most versatile. If you’re travelling, then you mostly need more casual clothes for all that exploring, so, rather than packing a high tea dress that you only wear once or twice, a skirt and top combo gives many more outfit options.
