Tutu Skirts & High Tea

Tutu skirts and high tea? Absolutely.

It was a cloudy day when a few of my girlfriends and I decided to go for High Tea at the Windsor Arms in the Yorkville area of Toronto, we celebrated my 25th birthday. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon where we updated one another on our lives and enjoyed various types of tea’s, warm raisin scones and gourmet mini sandwiches.

A fun day like this also meant planning for an extraordinary outfit. Being curvy and (I hate this word…) plus size, it’s definitely not easy finding a fabulous outfit on such short notice. With some thought and inspiration from Carrie Bradshaw and Kate Spade, I decided to design my own midi tutu skirt and have my sister in law sew it for me. We bought some lining and blush pink tulle and with a few alterations – VOILA! I was originally going to wear my midi tutu with a light grey woven sweater but seeing as how it’s summer, there wasn’t much out there. I did however go into Old Navy (I know, Old Navy?!), and found a perfect black and white striped top which I thought was very Kate Spade inspired. I paired my outfit with a heavy statement piece which was a beautiful silver necklace from my girl, Hijabi Mama (link below). I also wore my Gramercy Crystal watch from Kate Spade and some cute silver studs. Lastly, I threw on some white closed toe shoes and I was good to go!
