High Tea Outfit + Makeup Look

Two weeks ago, I was invited to experience high tea at a luxurious hotel downtown with my friends. The evening was unforgettable and filled with beautiful loose leaf tea, flakey pastries, and lovely company. While outfit planning for the event I asked myself “What would Marie Antoinette wear in 2017?” I wanted my outfit to be classy and elegant, yet finely balanced between smart and casual. After a lot of thought and trying on, I came up with this pale pink and black Parisian theme. Also, if you are going to be outside for more than a few minutes take a warmer jacket because it isn’t a particularly warm outfit.

The Outfit

  • Sweater – Zara Parisian Styled Cardigan in Pale Pink (Similar): This cardigan was my first-ever purchase from Zara. I love the pale pink colour, the Parisian style, and the way it drapes over my shoulders.
  • Top – Forever 21 Lingerie Top in Pale Pink and Black (Similar): I purchased this top from Forever 21 two years ago before the lingerie-outerwear trend became popular. In fact, when I wore it two years ago my friends thought the top was kind of daring. My favourite part about it is the black lace that really pulls the whole outfit together.
  • Pants – Levi’s 721 High Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Sheep: Since 2010, the only place I’ve ever shopped for jeans was at American Eagle Outfitters. However, a couple of months ago I needed new jeans and wanted to try Levi’s because they never go out of style. I’m glad I tried something new because I now own three pairs of Levi’s that I’m crazy about!
  • Earrings – Tiffany & Co. Return to Tiffany’s Silver Studs (Similar)
  • Watch – Michael Kors Ladies Parker Two-Tone Glitz Watch
  • Shoes – Aldo Ankle Booties in Black (Similar)
  • Handbag – Forever 21 Quilted Crossbody in Black (Similar)
