FUN MONDAY - Sunday mornings

WHO WANTS TO HOST ON MONDAY NOV 2 ????





Today I have the honor to host Fun Monday and as I am not curious at all, I always like to see a little bit of your personality. So I just wondered what are you wearing when you get out of your bed on a Sunday morning.

Since I am not working anymore, it's sunday morning every day the whole year long. First thing when I get out of my bed is grap my caftan throw it over my head and hurry in the kitchen to make coffee followed or surrounded by 5 breakfast hungry cats. After I have fed them I sip my coffee while I read my emails. In summer when it's warm I like to have my coffee outside on the patio and that's also an opportunity to have a little morning chat over the fence with my friend and neighbor. She in her bathrobe, I in my caftan. I wear this until I have decided what I will do with my day and this is always around 11 or even later.

Then only I get dressed or sometimes not, but be assured I wash myself and even put some make up around my eyes, otherwise I look like a Halloween witch.



My winter caftan in velvet, very warm and comfortable. I bought it in England in an Indian shop for only 10 € (15 $). It needs no ironing, just wash and wear.



For summer, spring and fall I have these 3, the one with short sleeves I bought in Egypt, the red long sleeved also in England and the turquoise in Brussels on the midi market, for less then 10 €. Ever since, I always wear caftans in the morning before I go out.

You look so stylish. I could take some lessons from you, I think!

I don't think I'm going to get a post up for this week. I'm sorry!

Pamela said...

Hey -- I jumped on the wagon and dashed out a quick post after all!

cynicalgirl said...

Man, I feel sooo underdressed now lol! You look lovely in the caftans. I'm too short to carry them off, I'm afraid.

Hootin' Anni said...

I love the warm, deep, rich color of the wine-red one. You look marvelous in it.

Thing is, I don't look any different from Sunday to the next morning...it's always scary.

Gattina, my friend, you are lovely, as are your choices for attire.

But as a crazed, insanely busy, sleep-deprived mommy, I cannot participate in this particular Fun Monday.

Really, it's for the good of Blogdom.

Gledwood said...

Gattina you do not look anything like a Halloween Witch!

PS talking of eyemakeup, did you know that without it, Claudia Schiffer is supposed to look "like a rabbit with myxamatosis"!...

This according to a top fashion photographer!

claudie said...

love really the blue turquoise one!!! It 's one of my prefered colours!!! Me I wear indian pants very comfortable and a coton tee shirt!!! I have three ones I bought to a camping owner!!! He sold them at camping and all people at camping wear them!! They are so comfortable you can eat and drink and move without problem!!!!

Gracie said...

If only all the witches were like this.....you look just fine in your winter caftan, and I guess it's the same with the others as well!

Melli said...

Wow! I haven't worn a caftan since I was a teenager! I had a silky purple paisley one back then -- I LOVED it! I should get some! They certainly are comfy... I would probably never get out of the house! LOL! I just slip straight into shorts and tshirt -- or in winter sweats and a tshirt... but no bra until I get showered and dressed. And I wear no make-up, so that part's easy!

Your caftans are beautiful! That velvet one - wow! I could never wear velvet -- not even in winter -- I would swelter!

The Church Lady said...

I must say, you look dressed to go out! I have never heard of a caftan. They are lovely.

Janis said...

I'm with Church Lady..never heard of a caftan.. we call something similar to them "Moo Moo's..but they are beautfiul and you wear it well. Wish I looked that good when I got up. Thanks for hosting and Happy FM Gattina

wendishness said...

I've never thought of wearing one myself but I must say they look really great on you! And I bet they're a nice and comfortable way to start the day as well. Thanks for hosting, this was fun and different!

Sayre said...

Wow - I LOVE that! I remember my mom wearing caftans in the 70s and I had one that I loved (even though it was polyester double knit). I need to find a pattern for these so I can make my own (as a trip to Britain, India or anywhere else is out of the question at the moment).

Kim said...

What fancy smancy loungers! So nice. I'm afraid I'm too boring or too predictable. Church on Sunday starts at 9:00, so it's into the shower to get ready, then I eat breakfast.

If you have had a harrowing experience or just did something dumb, hop on over to my middle age blog.

Many years ago I was a caftan fan, Gattina. Only I called then "marinas" for some reason. Made them from cotton knit or 100% cotton and --like you--wore them at least half the day. Your lovely ones are like mementos of trips you've enjoyed to other countries, I'm sure. I have a shawl that I bought in Venice and wear around my shoulders at night when at the computer--brings back good travel memories.

Dr.John said...

Well now I know how you look in the morning.

Maribeth said...

Those are beautiful!

ChrisB said...

Your caftans are really lovely Gattina.

Vlado&Toni said...
