Kaftan: Forever 21 – sold out (love this,Β this, this) | Heels: Steve Madden | Clutch: old (similar) | Ring: old (similar) | Necklace: Red Dress BoutiqueΒ | Sunglasses: old (similar)
You all know how much of a fan I am of everythingΒ bold & bright, so this kaftan was such a great find recently from Forever 21. I feel as thoughΒ year after year I’m always in search ofΒ the perfect poolside kaftan, yet can never find one that’s affordable (why is it that they are always so darn expensive??). The best part about this one is that it can go from pool to party in an instant. Just add a few key pieces of jewelry, and you’re set. I have to say, I love this time of year with all of these fun fashion colors!
It was a super rainy weekend here, and will be for the next few days. Definitely missing that Palm SpringsΒ sunshine right about now…
Thank you for reading!

    OMG that kaftan is gorgeous: the color, the sleeves, the maxi length. I hope to get to a F21 soon and buy some new cute Spring trendy pieces. I love that gorgeous pom-pom necklace too, it looks perfect with the dress. I thought it was built-in into the kaftan dress.
