Color me in love with the Ro’s Garden Clorinda Kaftan. I have it in two hues and they have both already made appearances on the blog, . Even though block prints are trending, I think the fact that Tuckernuck has literally doubled down by doubling the buy of this particular style in this particular blog print in more colors than ever before.
the Ro’s Garden Clorinda Kaftan
As someone who lives halfway around the world from home, I especially enjoy the relatively conservative cut of a caftan. When you are not sure of the cultural and religious nuances of a destination, caftans are always a safe bet for a packing. While I procured the green version circa summer 2020, I bought the pink colorway from Tuckernuck at the end of last year and wore it all over the east coast during our spring stateside vacation. As I wore the green version and the blue colorway in a shorter style on repeat for the past two years, I knew the pink would get a lot of airtime.
My favorite parts of the style are threefold: the block print, pockets, and how beautifully it washes. I don’t have to be too precious about how often I wear it because it all literally comes out in the wash (save for the Essie nail polish incident of 2020; read how I dealt with that tragedy here). I flip it inside out and wash on a delicate, cold water cycle with other whites. As a mom of a messy toddler (and by extension, messy home), I do not feel like I have to change out of the caftan immediately upon returning home from the day’s activity.
The fabric is static, non-stretch. I enjoy a roomier fit in all of my clothes, but especially in caftans. All of my Ro’s Garden styles are a large.
