Summer Essential – the kaftan!

I’ve been very lucky to have spent the last 2 weeks holidaying at the coast, spending time in both northern NSW and Palm Beach, Queensland. 
I’ve always been a water baby and love nothing more than spending my days swimming in the surf and in the pool. 
When off for a swim or alternatively heading back from a swim I would normally wrap my towel around me or pop on a pair of old black shorts. I was determined that on this holiday however, I was going to look stylish and fashionable and feel good about what I was wearing over my togs. 
Prior to going on holidays I began the search for a plus sized or one sized kaftan. It was not easy an easy task – every shop I visited did not sell kaftans above a size 14/16. 
Disheartened I took my search online and experienced the same thing across many labels. Just as my hope was fading I discovered Lillianna Plus (soon to change to PQ Curve) who offered a range of kaftans that suit a size 8 through to size 24. I love that this label thinks of every body shape! 
I lived in the pink peak front kaftan pictured – it was perfect to throw over my togs but also doubled as an outfit for lunch! The multiway kaftan in aqua tile also pictured was amazing too – I kept this one for dinner dates with my husband but loved that you could adjust its look! I purchased both of these through White Have Emporium –
When on holidays I wandered into a little shop in Kingscliff and discovered the one size kaftan by Holiday Trading. I quickly fell in love with my aqua and white striped kaftan pictured – it made me feel fantastic and I happily wore it over my togs and out and about. Holiday Trading has gorgeous holiday and resort wear for all shapes and sizes – visit 
Last but not least I also picked up a gorgeous one size fits all jewelled kaftan pictured from Vanilla Cove. Over the holidays my sister and Mum (size 12) who are both regular sized popped it on and it looked lovely on all 3 of us! 
Next time you hit the beach or pool make sure you have a kaftan, it is a summer essential for rocking your look!
