Simply Be Liz McClarnon kaftan

Hello lovelies,

My name is Leah and I'm addicted to kaftans. I have it baaad.

This kaftan by Simply Be (purchased by me) is a nice thick material with an aztec pattern to it.

Plus size summer cover up

I sized up as I wanted a baggy fit. The waist tie means you can still have a little definition in your waist, or wear it loose and flowing. It's very versatile - it works equally well with jeans as it would over a swimsuit on holiday. Tear up the rule book - if you like something, wear it how you see fit. If you love the pattern on nightwear and want to wear it as a dress, do it. Rules are made to be broken!

I'm wearing it with my full bum jeans from Fashion World. I'm a strange one - I avoid jeans all winter and start to wear them again in summer. I associate jeans in winter with sore skin - the heavy fabric and cold air can lead to my parched, Fibromyalgia-affected legs chapping.

To make this kaftan absolutely perfect for me I'd have liked a lower neckline by a few inches and perhaps another 6 inches on the length. I'm still on the look out for an almost knee length kaftan which I can wear over leggings and a vest on a hot day without worrying about my bum taking people's eyes out.

The necklace from Superdrug was only £5 and I love the simple open diamond design. It's a shame they don't sell their jewellery online, but if you're in the UK do have a peek in store as it's all reasonably priced. I love long necklaces - mid length ones get swallowed up by my boobs!

Do you wear anything differently than its original purpose?
