Last Saturday was a very high brow affair. I’ll admit, I’m still in awe of the Royal Wedding! Isn’t it every girl’s dream to be a princess? I spent the morning watching all of the details of the wedding while of course paying close attention to what all of the guests were wearing, my favorite part! I adore British Fashion, they are so ahead of us, in terms of style. I always look to them for inspiration and it always seems that America gets on board with what is trending with them about a year later!
In honor of Royal Wedding between Megan Markle and Prince Harry, I went to High Tea at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, TN with some other bloggers. This was my first High Tea experience and it did not disappoint. I felt transported out of Memphis to England! From the decor, to the service at Chez Phillipe, everything was beautiful. Reservations are required for afternoon tea and they offer 3 courses. Although they were small bites all displayed 3 tiers of silver, I was quite full by the end of it. With your tea, you do have an opportunity to purchase a glass of French champagne to go with it. Which of course I had to partake in.
When one is wearing a fascinator, one must have champagne in hand.
All these #memphisbloggers have such unique style. Give them a follow!

The most dainty finger food that looks tiny, but definitely fills you up and satisfies your tastes. My personal favorite was the smoked salmon.

High Tea is a dressy affair. Out of respect for the beauty of the hotel and for the restaurant, I went with all the British wedding guest attire vibes I could. I call this dress my Ted Baker Knockoff. I adore Ted Baker London’s floral midi dresses and this one was perfect to me. I paired it with my shoes of the Spring from Zara, and of course a pink fascinator by August Hat Company. I had to use the new Aspyn Ovard face palette from Tarte. This palette is perfect for a daytime glam look. It even has a shade in there called “Tea Time”!
