Caftan Crazy

Through the magic of Pinterest, I discovered this fabulous brand that makes amazing dresses, tunics, and caftans. Two New York is a small collection of chic and effortless pieces. They are made from hand-loomed cotton saris and textiles, and are hand-made in their Brooklyn studio. And the designer, Monica Patel-Cohn has a very impressive resume. She has worked with Simon Doonan (the wizard behind all beauty at Barney’s New York) and in Milan at Prada. She so understands that women want to be chic and comfy whether they are at the beach or trying to beat the heat.

Kerala Dress $260
This would be my go-to event dress during the summer months. Simple but oh-so-chic.

For more offerings and information, please visit Two New York

I am going crazy for caftans right now, but it’s really hard to find ones that don’t look like pajamas and aren’t super expensive. I’ve also found some vintage offerings on Etsy and Ebay, and even some original patterns from the 70’s (too bad I can’t sew).

Victoria’s Secret Caftan Dress $59.50
Same dress, different colors. This is my favorite and it’s affordable. Great for lounging, errands, or lunch with the girls.
Available at Victoria’s Secret

And here are some inspiring pictures that I “pinned” and have me dreaming of lazing my summer in a caftan.

Sunday afternoon at Lake Calhoun

What a glorious afternoon for a walk around Lake Calhoun. We are so lucky to live in a city that has such a beautiful chain of lakes. And have you tried Tin Fish Restaurant? Located at 3000 East Calhoun Parkway-right on the water-this gem offers great food and great views of the lake and the skyline. The menu offers everything from tacos, fish sandwiches, chowders and soups to sweet treats. But hurry! Tin Fish is only open through mid October.
