as seen in the 2/14/16 edition of Chicago Tribune's Answer Angel by Ellen Warren a woman was in a quandry about what to wear to a tea. the answer angel told her that long ago it was called: "day dress with a hat" (From Britain). What that means is that one needs to wear a nice looking dress that you'd wear to a brunch or a lunch. And the hat is optional. Also many women will also wear a fancy blouse and fine dress slacks.
The Answer Angel also told the woman to even google Duchess Kate and see what she's wearing as she is setting trends in leaps and bounds!
If you get to go to a tea, enjoy and have fun with it hat and all!

Over indulgence, and other holiday fun leaves our tummy's in rumbles.
Have a cup/mug full of chamomile tea, yes! The calming properties of chamomile calms and chases away inflammation in the tummy. Chamomile is also great for sleep as well. I'd use tea instead of drugs if it's at all possible.
*Please consult w/physician for advice on tea drinking, for allergy or possible prescription interaction.
