Tea Time

There’s something magical about cool mornings, birds chirping and breezy afternoons that make Springtime so dreamy. If we were to write a fairytale, it would most definitely take place in a far-away land that is always in a state of Spring. We were able to harness that magical dreaminess in this Traffic People lace maxi dress. The sky blue slip is included so while this dress may look fragile and delicately placed, it’s a piece you can toss on and be transported to your favorite fairytale. Something about pastels and gold thread that sends you right into the pages of a storybook. We decided to compliment the airiness of the dress by keeping accessories and shoes in the same pastel color-family. For those chilly, Spring evenings, a soft knit cardigan or cropped denim jacket would fit in effortlessly with this look.
