aussie curves challenge - pastel

when i saw pastels on the  challenge list, i kind of went eeeww! i don't think i have really done pastels seriously since the 80's.  i like what i wear to be bright bright bright and brighter. but as this is a challenge, i am up for it.

as i am away at the beach, i struggled to think of anything i packed that is pastel, but bingo, the most obvious thing was right on me - my butterfly kaftan.

i found this fabric at spotlight a few years back and as fabric often does, it lay in the box waiting for its time to evolve into something fabulous and eventually a little beach throw was the end result.
i love that this fabric looks like it's just a pretty pattern until all the butterflies start to evolve.
there is also something so great about throwing on a loose flowing kaftan to lounge around in.  i am very comfortable in this look, as i think sometimes kaftans are often used to try and hide what's underneath, but in my case, i just love the look and feel of them and whenever i wear one, i always feel like i am on a holiday, even if i am not.
so that's it.  my pastel look - now i better go, the beach is calling.

kaftan - made by me
glasses - miu miu
hat - won from the local bowlo
havaianas - byron bay
location - broken head beach, nsw


  1. Haha, such a cute little kaftan you are wearing. And it looks lovely on you too, good that you've taken the challenge and tried a lighter color. The whole look looks perfect for the beach.

  2. You look so cool in this kaftan. Its a perfect outfit to spend a summer day at beach as it keeps you cool and you can enjoy the tanning in sunlight. I would recommend that to the students that they should get in touch with professional dissertation writing services for expert assistance.
