Ever thought of that one item in your wardrobe that could transport you to your happy place – that place with golden beaches, turquoise waters, brightly coloured hammocks, warm air, and overstuffed ottomans? For me it’s a soft, gauzy white maxi dress. Paeans have been written about the ubiquitous Little Black Dress, but my wardrobe staple is the not-so-little white dress. A classic summer style, it can be worn in an endless number of ways for travelling, picnicking, and everything in between.

I wore this one to explore the local Sunday market in Lanzarote and saunter in the bluebell fields that populate the villages of the Spanish island. Since the dress is lightweight and simple, I added some neon ethnic accessories to lend interest to the ensemble. I love the neon tones of the hand-painted wooden bangles and the embellishment on the bright fuchsia bag. There you have it, an ethnic spin on the white maxi for spring.

We shot these photos on a very windy day (my gravity-defying hair tell that story well ;-)), but all that commotion in the photos makes me feel like I’m breathing the air of new places, faraway places, right now.
