Living in a tropical country allows us the luxury of warm weather dressing all day everyday. A favorite and easy piece we always reach out for is the kaftan. Chic, easy and relaxed dressing in an instant. And while one paired with your typical flat sandals looks good, we rounded up a couple of ways to get more style mileage out of this classic weekend staple.

Jenny Walton can do no wrong. We are obsessed with this style muse and are always impressed with her quirky cool ensembles. Pair classic chucks with an embroidered kaftan for a look that’s more street than beach.

To say that we are obsessed with Amber Lewis of Amber Interiors Design would be an understatement. Her chic, clean yet worldly and collected aesthetic has got us swooning since the first day we saw her work. Her modern take on bohemian has us totally inspired. Check out her amazing designs and see how you can get the look!

White walls and, clean lines and pops of color, textures and patterns are a signature of the designer. And while the look is layered, it is never cluttered

Books and mementos are paired with natural elements such as woven baskets, wooden trays and handmade ceramics.

Her design staple of print on print textiles add a well traveled and sophisticated vibe to the rooms.

Wooden furniture keep the look earthy and cozy.

Gold and brass accents are a great way to add touch of luxe while still keeping the look relaxed and comfortable.

Vintage rugs or those made of natural fibers add warmth to the space and are a great way to divide the space.
