Will she ever stop posting photos of Madeira?
Is that what you're thinking? Well, this is the penultimate 'Resort Looks' post... And this time the topic is relaxed yet smart clothing, also known as 'smart casual'. And yes, there's sometimes need for smart casual outfits, even on holiday.
These photos were taken on Christmas Day, and Professor M and I were on our way to have afternoon tea at Reid's Palace. That's the pink building in the background. It's a sort of luxury hotel full of oldy-worldy charm and a rich tradition of serving high tea to the rich and famous. We are neither, of course, but who cares? We can pretend to be oldy-worldy socialites for one afternoon...
Afternoon tea at Reid's Palace on Christmas Day has become sort of a tradition for us, and I've blogged about it before (see HERE and HERE).
