Colorful Caftan

Last spring, I was gifted this gorgeous, colorful caftan from Frances Valentine. This is actually my first caftan and I was drawn to it because of the colorful embroidery. I first wore it on a day trip to Palm Springs and you might have seen some of my photos from this trip on my Instagram. It was the perfect frock to wear amidst the backdrop of the desert, palm trees and mid-century modern houses! In fact, I felt like I could have moved right in to one of those houses and fit right in! Below, you will find some other gorgeous caftans and dresses that would be perfect for Palm Springs!


I decided to wear this dress again to go out to dinner last weekend. The restaurant we went to was a French restaurant and we dined al fresco. One of the interesting things about our dinner was that, due to the wildfires we currently have here in California, it was raining ash on our table while we were eating! (Just one of the many perks of living in California, I guess!) Despite the hot weather and the ash, it was still a wonderful dinner! Also, even though this dress is made out of rather thick material, it was still pretty cool and comfortable. I look forward to, hopefully, wearing this caftan again in Palm Springs where it's even hotter than it is here in Los Angeles!
