Caftan Cool

It is HOT in the city (San Francisco), and I'm wishing I was wearing a beautiful breezy caftan, preferably on a beach. Perfect for summer, lightweight fabrics and eye-catching patterns/colors make caftans a go to item to achieve an effortless bohemian beauty when the temperatures rise. Don't stop there though, add an updated head scarf and strappy sandals to complete the look and live like a '70s summer siren.

  2. I had no idea you live in San Francisco! Some college friends and I are taking a girls' vacation down there in a couple of weeks and I'm so freakin excited! I haven't been since 8th grade! When it gets closer to it, I may hit you up for recommendations ;)

    Love that yellow tiger kaftan - that material is gorgeous!

  17. in an ironic twist of fate, last night i was mindlessly engulfed in the styles of "sex and the city 2" (what a ridiculously bombastic movie), and i was thinking to myself, HOW DO I NOT OWN A CAFTAN.

    life seems so empty without one.

  28. I really want to attempy at DIY of a turban headband because I'm in love with them, but all the ones I've seen are kinda pricey! Caftans are so breezy and beautiful.
