A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

White Kaftan, Green Jeans

I have noticed that indoor photos make me look a bit oompa loompaish, you get my drift? Charlie and the chocolate factory anyone?

I have a bit of thing for kaftans, I love how they hide many sins and are very stylish and comfortable.  I bought this white one two years ago from Forever New and believe you me, its one of my favorite tops.  The cotton fabric is so soft on my skin, it's a true pleasure.  I love how it can be dressed down with jeans and flats like I have done here or it can be given a bit of an attitude with a serious pencil skirt and heels, whack on drop earrings and voila, you are the life of the party.

Thank you for coming over, take your time, look around and let me know what you think.
