Caftan, Take Me Away

In the depths of winter I came upon this Natori caftan and thought, wouldn't it be pretty paired with bejeweled flip flops for a resort evening in the islands?  Since no such trip was happening any time in my near or distant future, I kept flipping through the racks.  Then this month I came upon it again, 40% off at Saks. Having just written a guest post* about living with style every day I realized my own loungewear (mostly faded sweats) left something to be desired.  So home with me the caftan came, and this little touch of luxury has been delighting me pretty much every evening since. Something about the vivid tropical print, silky softness and easy fit make me feel I'm on vacation even while curled up on the sofa at home. (And while it looks and feels like silk, it's actually made of easy to care for polyester.)

How about you?  What little luxury takes you away from the every day?

p.s. *Thank you all for the warm response to that guest post for Design Chic, and welcome to so many lovely new subscribers.  I'm making my way to visit each of your sites and look forward to a continuing conversation about style ... and life.

This May we're talking about Home & Away.
