For a very British (read "rainy") spring day out, I decided to team my new mesh-panel midi with an old-favourite Primark peplum and the pretty-but-practical mini-heeled points I'd just snapped up from Dorothy Perkins - weather be damned (whilst keeping a watchful eye out for puddles!).

Once safely tucked inside the Tiger Green Brasserie, we were plied with unlimited tea of all varieties, along with the usual finger sandwiches, scones and miniature cakes and pastries, plus a few additional flutes of champagne... I didn't rate the sandwiches as highly as the open variety we enjoyed at the Hilton Park Lane last autumn, aside from the eggy delight which I had to
beg borrow steal from Mr Muses' plate, since it hadn't been included in our vegetarian selections, and nothing could match those heaven-sent chocolate chip scones, but the fruit tartlet and mini Victoria sponge deserve a special mention. Once again, we were supplied with only one portion of each cake/pastry between two, so I had to take on carving duties... but if you haven't attempted to divide a macaroon into two, you haven't lived.
