Evatrends – Relaxing In Comfort – Holiday Edit #4

What do you wear when the temperatures are hot or on holiday at home to relax in? I’m always referring to my beloved kaftans that I like to wear around the house (think Margo from the programme The Good Life, but with an Essex accent!) This Maxi dress from Evatrends fits the bill nicely (I describe it Kaftan!)

Do you remember The Good Life?


Evatrends relaxing in style


Evatrends has had a massive explosion in the blogosphere of late, lots of my weekly reads have been showing off their favourites from the Evatrends brand. I spotted this and thought hey, perfect for relaxing later in the day on holiday and then I will wear at home.


This is one big square of material! Billowing in the wind!


relaxing in Evatrends


Sunbathing around the poolside was one of my favourite relaxing times of the holiday. We had a couple of cloudy, windy days, but on this day it had been so hot! The pool was closed off at seven, so a quick shower and slipping into this was perfect for my body that still felt hot from the sun.

I wear kaftans a lot in the summer months at home to relax in. No restriction and light to wear with nothing on underneath! This could be worn with a belt, but I have chosen to let it flow…



It has pockets at the side, always handy. I was struck by the bright print that screamed holiday!



We took advantage of the poolside to take these photos. Just imagine 500 rooms with the inhabitants looking over their balconies wondering what on earth I was getting up too! Take note of my trusty Vionic flipflops that I literally lived in! you can catch my “packed holiday essentials” post here


There’s a discount code for Evatrends ladies!

I’m sucking up that breeze! It was 26 degrees on this day, doesn’t sound like much but boy, when you’re just laying in it and not a whisper of a breeze, it was hot! I thought I was going to combust at some points!

I will be sharing some more outfits from Evatrends over the next couple of weeks. More down to earth wear around town stuff. They have some lovely items on the website plus there’s a 20% discount code! So pop over to the site and pick up a bargain!




In the meantime, I’m going to carry on enjoying my holiday! The next time I catch up with you all I will be home! I look forward to catching up with you all.

    I have one of these Laurie ( but white and orange and green) and I like to call it My Goddess Gown! (LOL) It’s fun to lounge around in- beats sweats! I think every woman needs a goddess gown. Cheers, Deborah

    Thank you so much for linking up to #Fakeituntilyoumakeit Laurie.

    This palm print is fabulous it always reminds me of J-lo in THAT dress, back in the day.

    Have a fab week!

    Laurie, you are beautiful by the pool! I love the dress, looks so comfy!

  4. June 1, 2018 / 1:49 pm

    Laurie, very pretty. I’m not really the kaftan type, but it works for you! Love that print. And, funny, first thing I thought of when I saw the linky photo on Dee’s blog was Margo! Curious, how does your Essex accent differ from Margo’s accent?

  5. June 1, 2018 / 11:20 am

    Love the colors and pattern of the fabric, and pockets are essential, aren’t they? Lovely photos by the pool!

    Nothing beats comfort when looking for style! Beautiful! #LGRTstumble xoxo

    How lovely to catch up on some more of your holiday outfits. This looks like the perfect thing to wear for just chilling by the pool, or at home as you say. I have a shorter length kaftan but can see the joy of a full length version. You honestly would look great in a bin liner my dear!
