improvised kaftan







I have always had a major crush on kaftans -- especially these -- but haven't had much luck scouting one for my own. So I decided to improvise. 

This J.Crew dress caught my eye back in January. Tried one in my size and it was ok, nothing too special for the price. Fast forward a couple months, and I tried it again -- but two sizes larger -- and kind of loved it. This boho print just makes this extra-slouchy shape look less frumpy, and more of what I've been hunting for: an idea kaftan/dress hybrid ready for bare legs and sunset beach strolls.

{JCrew dress (on sale!); Plenty by Tracy Reese sweetheart pumps; Michael Kors bag (old); JCrew bracelets}

  2. That is so cute! Really smart to get it oversized, adds a bit more fun to it (even though the print is already really fun)
