Ice Queen // Gotham Afternoon Tea MCR

As the Gotham Hotel has only recently opened in Manchester I thought it would be the perfect excuse to try out the afternoon tea....I was not disappointed. I went all pastel for the day and got told I was dressed like the Ice Queen, although what's not to love about that...she's pastel perfection!

I'm obsessed with this shade of blue at the moment, especially since the SS15 Blue Hues event which you can read about in my previous post here. Missguided is always on form with the trends and I love the latest addition with these beaut high neck long-line tunics. The side-split detail is great for layering with anything from jeans to pencil skirts and the lightweight fabric is ideal for this transitional time of year...they have them online in a few different colours too! Topshop also has similar styles in store and I've noticed River Island has knitted versions for A/W.

I layered up against these ASOS ripped skinny jeans and a waterfall sleeveless duster, tying the look together with a matching ice blue crochet clutch and my forever favourite chunky sandals.

The Gotham Hotel has a quirky Batman meets Great Gatsby vibe and amazing architecture keeping in tack detailing from the buildings previous bank years. In fact the vault doors are now the entrance to the members bar. With afternoon tea situated in the Honey room with a glass of fizz to start and onto a delicious selection of sandwiches keeping traditional with smoked salmon and cream cheese, beef and horseradish, ham and Dijon mayonnaise and cheese and chutney. The top tier included homemade scones, strawberry jam and clotted cream and not to forget the middle tier of sweet treats from Eccles cakes, Manchester tarts and Gotham cake. I went for the Radiant Rose tea which I would definitely get again. The whole experience was perfect including the staff too...not to mention the amazing rooftop bar with views across Manchester. I'm now desperate to stay for the night!!
