One of my friends shared this article yesterday: How to Get Your Body Caftan-Ready for Summer. (It is a delightful article. Please go read it and come right back!) She commented:
“I think, as an artist that lives in Berkeley, perhaps I could just ONLY wear caftans from now on. I’m looking into it.”
Pro Tip: As a pastor that lives in rural Minnesota, this is probably not the case for me. But I love the spirit behind it: instead of worrying about whether or not your body is “bikini-ready”, know that it is already “caftan-ready”. Because here’s what you have to do to have a caftan-ready body:
- Buy a caftan.
- Wear it.
- End of list.
Wear what you want to wear this summer. Be comfortable in your clothes and be comfortable in your body, because you are a precious child of God, fearfully and wonderfully made.
What makes you comfortable?
