Fumbalinas Orange Print Kaftan + Style With a Smile Link Up

Fumbalinas Orange Print Kaftan

Happy International Women’s Day! I’m a day late with this post, watching the snow falling and wishing I was back in Agadir. I often think I was born to live somewhere warm, wafting around in a kaftan (retirement goals!). I drove to my mum’s yesterday with an aching back and knees, and collapsed on the sofa and went to sleep. I’m partly blaming the cold weather (another reason to move to a warm climate) and the fact I did a particularly energetic workout in the morning. Me and burpees will never be friends. Fact. Anyway, we have a few days of snow/sleet/rain in store before milder weather returns. At least I have a week in Madeira to look forward to in April. It may not be hot, but it will be warm, and that’s good enough for me!

I’d been wanting to wear this Fumbalinas orange print kaftan for months and Morocco seemed like a fitting location. It drew quite a few looks as people were strolling along the promenade. Not that I let it bother me! It was early evening on our last day, I’d been by the pool all day and my hair was a mess so I plonked my hat on. In hindsight, a headband would have worked better, but the only one I took was in a totally different colourway. When I saw this orange print kaftan on the Fumbalinas website, Jodie (the owner) was wearing it with the most fabulous orange headdress. I seriously contemplated buying that too but had to be realistic about when I’d ever get to wear it. (If you’re curious you can see it here.)

I love owning really unusual items of clothing that I will treasure for many years to come

Jodie sews hidden ribbons into the kaftans so they can be worn either loose or tied at the waist on the underside for a more figure hugging look. She only had enough fabric to make two of these kaftans so it’s a really special piece that I’ll love forever. All the pieces I’ve bought from small brands take pride of place in my wardrobe. I love owning really unusual items of clothing that I will treasure for many years to come. So here’s to all the amazing women who make beautiful creations that bring us joy!

  9. FAB-U-LOUS Dahhhling! What more can I say not enough superlatives for your gorgeous photos X

  10. What a showstopper this kaftan is! Fab on you and perfect for Morocco. I’m with you regarding this freezing weather, anywhere that is just “warm” would be welcome. Wrap up warm and keep cosy as it looks like it’s here for a while

    I love the more original pieces of clothing too. It’s fun to be unique in that respect. I think you would love a place that is always warm. We love AZ although it does get somewhat chilly in the winter. But nothing like what you have,
    PS. I’m still not getting your emails?
