It was honestly one of the best things I have done. The tea was amazing as was the food but mostly it was the atmosphere I loved...oh and the powder room. I have never seen such a beautiful bathroom. I walked in and it was empty so I reapplied my Chanel lipstick, tweaked my hair and took a few photos. It was a big contrast to using a public toilet earlier that day. I try and block out that memory though and just remember it as the day I went to The Ritz and everything was beautiful and posh and perfect.
I had previously been worrying over what I would wear as I had no idea what the dress code was except I knew it was formal but not too evening-y. I've decided to do a post on what to wear to the ritz sometime next week (EDIT: See post here) because I spent a long time searching for a blog article and found nothing so keep an eye out for that! Hopefully it will help someone.
In the end I chose a black swing dress with an off-white crochet collar, black tights, heeled ankle boots, pearls, red lipstick and an off-white satchel. I was really happy with my outfit and was happy because originally I assumed I'd just go for floral but it felt nice to be wearing something a little different for me. You can't really go wrong with black and white.

Anyway, I thought I'd share my pictures from yesterday (the last three are of Fortnum and Mason) . I didn't take my camera as it's so heavy and I didn't want to have to put it on the table while we ate. Instead I used my iPhone which I feel a bit naughty using as I have such a lovely camera but in the end I got some lovely pictures and it seemed a lot more appropriate for the situation.
I plan to relax all day cause tonight I'm off out for a catch up over drinks with a friend I haven't seen for a while. What're your plans?
