My New Favorite Thing: Aprons

by Elizabeth on May 2, 2012

Let’s face it: we turn into our parents.  Some of us sooner rather than later, but I noticed it happening a few years ago.  Here is some evidence that I am my mother, something I swore I would never be:

1) It is May 2nd, and I have every single weekend of the summer booked with either visitors or events.

2) I never sit down

3) I have started wearing my hair in French Twists

4) I wear aprons not just for cooking but for eating, too


Yes, this last one is nothing short of ridiculous, but after splashing sauce on one of my favorite shirts and realizing that bibs are, shall we say, silly on adults, I opted to wear my apron from dinner prep through clean-up.  And, since there are such cute options these days, why wouldn’t I?!  Here are some of my favorites:

Anthropologie has the best.  This one and the next are so cute, it makes me want to wear them all day.


I really love aprons from the Orient Linen Company, too.  They made a custom apron for me that I use all the time

And if you want to ensure that you never get in a fight with your husband, you could always wear this number that we gave my friend Lamar for her bridal shower.  I’m not sure that it works as well as a bib but I’m pretty sure that your husband would be thrilled to see you cooking in it……
