Kaftan-tastic

I've practically been living in these gauzy cotton kaftans for the past couple of weeks.

I may not be the biggest advocate of comfort in dressing up, but from time to time, it feels nice to don something comfy enough for you to fall asleep in. Dressing like it's fashion week everyday is a superhuman feat.

I was so pleased with the quality and detailing of these shirts that I decided to buy two of the same style. The slouchy, unstructured, slim mandarin collar, the single button, and just the overall look exuded an elegant minimalism that was akin to something from Acne.

When I saw it in this David Hockney shade of blue, I knew it would look great with my DIY paint-splatter laceups.

I decided to take the plunge and get another in chartreuse, a color I can't ever remember having worn. Now I'm hooked on the hue.

I saw the green one at Zara and I really liked it, wanted to buy it but it was kind of overpriced in my opinion. I just love these kaftans, but then again I already have quite a few of these hehe

Oh yeah, the blue one looks RAD with your splatter paint shoes.

I am the biggest advocate of comfort ever. I wear Birkenstocks and am proud of it.

Well i think the kaftans would be somehow more interesting if have some detailing to them, but alas we can't have everything... Oh and i love, love your blog !
