I hope you are all enjoying my pictures from St. Lucia that I have been sharing on Instagram! It is so nice to be on our first vacation in five months and take a step back from work and our normal day-to-day. Plus, as much as I really do like our London apartment I have spent so much time there since we moved in at the start of March it is great to have a change of scenery, especially for more than just a weekend!
Ironically, that said, I want to show you one of my best warm weather purchases of 2020 which I shot on the deck of my flat. This soft, lightweight kaftan is made from a great cotton gauze and the loose fit always for when a breeze comes along. When I have a break I usually sit and read on my balcony but if I stop to have lunch with Mark or need to answer the door (so many deliveries) it is always good to have a cover up ready. And do not even get me started with the British temperamental weather… a big gust can make a warm day quite chilly so layers are key!
Coverup | Seafolly Amnesia Kaftan, Antigua Blue, One Size
Hat | Packable Beige Boater Hat Sunglasses | Tortoiseshell Pattern Flat Lens Sunglasses
Bathing Suit | Triangle Tie Side Bikini Swimsuit Necklace | Slender Scallops Mini Pendant Necklace
Pedicure Polish | Rimmel Super Gel Nail Polish Basic B-Gold
And yes, I have a large number of books I have been slowly chipping away at. A few weeks ago, when I shot these photos, I was finishing up The Dressmaker’s Gift which I really enjoyed and I have half a dozen on deck including When We Believed in Mermaids and Everything I Never Told You. Two I have I recently finished – Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah , which I enjoyed, Little Fires Everywhere which despite the hype and rave reviews from friends, I was not a fan). Lastly, I am jealous of all of you as this beach kaftan was originally £32 and now on sale for only a third of that!
What do you think of this beach kaftan?
I love this beach cover up on you. Perfect summer loungewear for indoors and perfect for the beach or girlfriends pool. Boyfriend loves this on me because it shows lots of leg. Hope you are having a blast on your vacation.
Almost anything with a tassel and I am all in and this is no exception.
Perfect to throw on when I need to head to lunch or step away from the pool where I need some sort of cover-up. I wonder how it would look with a rope belt and white jeans? Could be pretty versatile Do you agree? Would it work?.
I like your beach kaftan very much.
I also like your reading choices. Really enjoyed Little Fires Everywhere.
That’s definitely your color. The tassels make a nice touch especially when you’re standing up. It looks really comfortable too.
Such a pretty color on you!!
