I felt a tiny bit like Joseph in his technicolor dream coat this morning as I got dressed for church. And it was awesome. I got these two vintage caftans from Prehistoric Vintage on Etsy and I can’t stop wearing them. I mean, it’s like wearing a robe. And yet, while you’re wearing it, you kind of feel like a princess somehow. A princess in a robe. I’m good with that.
When I got to church, one of the guys who always loves to comment on my outfits started laughing hysterically and just couldn’t stop. He came up to me and said: “You’re wearing a MUMU!!!” I pretended to be SUPER offended and replied: “Um, it’s a CAFTAN. NOT a MUMU.” I honestly don’t know what the difference is, but a caftan just sounds all bohemian chic while a mumu kind of sounds like I really AM wearing a robe. So I said it proudly and stood by my declaration…even though I really didn’t know what I was talking about. I know it’s a good day when I make someone laugh at my outfit! :)
As I was walking to my car, someone started singing (in my direction) “all the leaves are brown…and the sky is grey…”
This is a happy outfit for me. I’m a total caftan convert. Or is it mumu…I’m not really sure… :)
