Unlikely Martha
OOTD, Caftan

{Outfit of the Day} Caftan Comfort

Yesterday was open house for 3rd grade. I may or may not have been stalking the clock patiently but not really waiting for 5:00 so we could head to the school house for my son’s new classroom assignment. I decided to throw on my Caftan, simply because I love it and it didn’t need to be ironed.

My husband has all of the jokes whenever I wear one of my caftans, I have many. His jokes will go something like, ” I see you with your Moo-Moo on” or ” I like that nightgown.” No mind is paid to him but yesterday I almost spit out my water when he said I look like I’m floating when I walk in it and reminded him of a lady that would be on  Game of Thrones if I had some “jesus” sandals on…read gladiators.

I opted for my old faithful Kohl’s flower flip flops instad. I’ll miss them when the weather gets cooler. The look on my face is attributed to the fact that I can never retreat to the back yard with my tripod and remote without a little person coming on the deck asking for something.


I grabbed this and all of my other caftans from Ross for under $10 a piece. Money well spent in my book.

    You look so modelesqe in your caftan. I need to head to Ross while I’m here. I think we’re about the same height and I can’t ever find one long enough.

    I love it! I could never pull it off because I’m just too short! And by the way, this is the first time I’ve been on your site on my desktop in a while so I’m just noticing the new design! LOVE IT!

    I love these and would love to score a few. I have seen a couple here and there and just can’t decide on what I like. Well done, friend.
    My little man is going to 3rd Grade this year also! Let’s compare notes throughout the year, ok?

    i love it—ross is that a store you buy it ready made or you by material to make it…reminds me of african dress out of kinte cloth given to me w/ a head scarf…been wanting to get several…yes i call it the moo-moo …but mostly i call it the mrs roper get-up and she wore them on 3’s company! i also employ the turban into it at times …went on easy and found some affordable ..(higher prices than Ross) …but nicely beaded ones from india….

      I forget about Mrs. Roper on Three’s company. Yes!! She stayed floating in one. I miss that show. Ross is a store sort of like a TJ Maxx or Marshalls but generally their prices are a little cheaper.
