Rosy tea party

dress - Urban Outfitters / cardigan - JC Penney / shoes - Target

I found this beautiful dress on the clearance rack at Urban Outfitters, and it just screamed "tea party" to me. I also discovered my new favorite place to take pictures in my apartment. Finally, a place that looks halfway decent. It can be a tricky thing to find when you live in an apartment this small!

Even though it's been really warm today, I just had to have tea. A friend and I had a study date earlier in the day, and I treated her to some of my new jasmine tea I brought back from Okinawa. It's nice, but it's pretty strong compared to most mainland Japan teas. I wonder if they drink something similar in Taiwan? Anyhow, I'd love to make a tea latte out of it and sweeten it up a bit. 

In a stroke of luck today, it's beautifully sunny outside right now! The forecast called for rain, and it was pouring earlier, but now it's lovely. I think I might go for a jog later. By the way, I can jog two miles now without stopping! Not bad, huh? Of course, it's not the quickest two miles on record, but I'm super proud that I can even do it. It's good progress towards the St. Patrick's Day 5k that I'd like to try to do. 


  1. Beautiful outfit and pictures! Mm that tea looks so good right now too.. you are gorgeous!

  2. aww! i bought this one floral dress JUST so i could wear it to a tea party one day...but no such tea party has been planned :( so i think i shall wear it like you and have my own tea party (:

    The dress is lovely, and the tea and tea pot are pretty cool too! I've just got into drinking tea. My favourite is Moroccan mint tea, but normal fair trade is great too.
