DH and I both have pricey arons from Cath Kidson. They are so popular in London people are even walking to the shops in Hampstead Village and Primrose Hill in them....I don't go that far. Mine is floral, but in a haphazard way that conceals spills quite well, DH's is stripey. He loves his, he even puts it onto lay the table, PMSL.
If I am wearing a tracksuit or house-slob clothes I don't bother, anything else I usually do, I am too messy not to. I would like a couple more for when mine i in the wash, but its not essential, yet. The nice thing about the "fancier" aprons is I don't feel I have to take it off to answer th door if I am cooking. Its probably nicer than what I am wearing underneath anyway, lol.
In omnibus amor et iustum
