Cover it up beach!

Leave a Comment
Ahhh I've been wanting to write this post for so long now - I am literally the worlds biggest kaftan fan - I have a section in my wardrobe dedicated to them, but my gosh ladies, we are spoilt for choice this year! Literally, EVERYWHERE is selling them & they are getting better & better by the week, I thought I'd do a little post to share some of my favourite with you..

Dancing Leopard

Ok, so Dancing Leopard is one of my favourite ever go-to summer brands! I stumbled across them early last year via Facebook, not entirely sure how, someone must have shared their page on my newsfeed, but woweee I've literally banged on about the brand ever since! They use traditional indian patterns mixed with boho fashion influences to create some of the most stunning beach cover-ups.. like this...
This is the Peacock Tassle Kimono & it's one I personally own - I wear it on my holidays or simply with jeans and a silk-mix vest for ultimate luxury, I don't think I've worn it & not received a lovely comment to date!

I absolutely love this Genie Jumpsuit, there's a peach version in the sale at the moment that I'm tempted to buy!
This wrap-around toga Mermaid Dress is genius! It would look so stunning with lots of boho jewellery layered for the evenings, not only that, once unravelled, it doubles up as a beach blanket! Amazing idea for the light packers!
 What's even better about Dancing Leopard is that nearly all of their items are classed as one size, so there's no worries about what size you would need. I shouldn't have written this post - I'm already deciding which one to buy next as I write this... woops.

Pretty Little Thing

I'm a fairly new follower to this brand, thanks to nearly every blogger on the high-street bloggersphere who have been featuring their pieces on instagram @officialplt, it caught my attention. Some of it is VERY girly and includes a lot of pastel colours, especially their The Paradox Collection which adorns a beautiful cloud print design on a few pieces in the collection (see below) I do feel that maybe I've passed my sell-by-date for showing as much skin as below, but I know for a fact some of you lot would look INCREDIBLE in them & they are great prices too!..

Which now leads me to their kimonos & kaftans - I've just double checked their website & I knew I was a fan for a reason - they have 46 to choose from!!! Now if we can't all find one we like from that amount then somethings not quite right.. & I for one NEED at least 5 of them in my life, which I've featured below for you - but make sure you take a peek at the rest of them too, you're literally spoilt for choice..
I really like how this kimono can be worn in so many different ways, would look fab over a bikini but I can see myself wearing this at work with some floral patterned trousers & vest - plus its only £15 & comes in black & pink too.

I absolutely love the long length of this floral one, it comes in a pinker version too which is beaut & is £30.
                      I couldn't decide whether to post a picture of the black or the white version of this kimono because I love them both equally - I think it helps that the model looks like Kendal Jenner though! These ones are £24 & the only issue I have is deciding which one to buy..

And last but not least..

Julia Hearts U

I stumbled across this gorgeous little brand on instagram (@juliagetstattoo) one day & started talking to Julia, the lovely lady who hand-makes these kimonos - since then I have watched her brand grow & she now has a large range of kimonos to choose from some of the most stunning fabrics! (My personal favourite being a green sequin one - oh my - its yummy!)
This is the gorgeous Leeanne Wells who recently modeled for me for a Cordelia photoshoot, she's such a natural little beaut & looked so pretty in the Julia Hearts U kaftans.. (Photographer @broganrrr)

This is the stunner that I've fallen in love with - you can buy it HERE for £35
Love these 2, they are almost like wearing artwork!

Already planning my winter wardrobe that needs to include one of these!
I have recently had a little give-away on @cordelia_hearts to win a Julia Hearts U kaftan, the winner has been announced now but keep your eye on their instagram incase there are any more!

So there you go, some of my favourite kaftans this year, do you have a holiday booked? I hope this post has helped you if you have - I in absolutely no way what-so-ever need another kaftan but I know how I'm going to be spending my next half an hour... (online shopping!) oh and one more to show you..

I was tempted to keep this a secret but I can't do it - I found this absolute BEAUT on eBay, ok so it's from China & might not ever show-up (wouldn't be the first time!) but for £6 including postage I think it's worth the risk... Vintage Lace Kimono - That's the link, don't say I never treat you! :)
