{ Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Mary-Kate Olsen }

I'll just come out and say it: If I could live my whole life in a dress as big as a tent, I would. Spending my days swathed in yards and yards of fabric that caught the breeze just so, and somehow made me look quite tiny instead of like a big, billowing house? Dream. Come. True. Obviously the reality of such a dream cannot (and frankly should not) come true in New York City. We have seasons and subways and an unfortunate lack of palm trees.

But the good news is summer is coming, and that means weekends in the Hamptons and at The Shore, weddings on the West Coast and maybe a picnic or two in Central Park. For these adventures, and for reasons I can't even put words to, I must have the caftans. I want them all, and I want to wear them with a perfect straw hat and some white Birkenstocks. Is that so much to ask?

Dressy, casual, completely tent-like or semi-fitted, this is a trend we can all embrace. After all, Christina Hendricks told Jimmy Fallon that she even hosts "caftan parties," where the only requirement is that you wear a caftan. I want to do that. Would you guys come?

I just want to be this girl pictured above crossed with an Olsen twin wandering the streets of TriBeCa plus Jessica Alba's hat, also above. Join me, won't you? Let's aspire to #thatcaftanlife.


  1. Beautiful prints, love it!


  2. I am so excited that the weather is finally getting nice enough around here to wear some caftans! They are my favorite summer look. xoxo, Amanda
