Cute In The Kitchen Fashion
December 22, 2008
Who ever said that being in the kitchen meant you couldn’t be fashionably cute? Bah, I say to such nonsense. It can be quite inspiring and all the more fun.
I remember as a child watching my mother and my auntie cooking in the kitchen before a big event- their hair would be up, possibly in an updo or just up and pretty and out of the way. It looked so elegant, that was for sure. And always, always, always- an adorable apron!
My auntie wore this white sheer-like ruffled one that was glamorous and most likely hardly designed for actual use. But of course she used it, she was always so glamorous wherever she went, home included- and it would get messy as the cooking continued. She would have it dry cleaned and then begin again. It was important to her to look and feel her best. My mother’s hair was short, but she would have it curled and pretty- and of course have a beautiful apron on.
Now am I saying to wear a gown, heels, and elaborate hairstyle while cooking? No.. I am just saying to have a little fun and fashionable spirit as you work. For me it is an apron- I wish to find one like my auntie’s one day, but in the meantime I have some cute ones to keep me entertained. Like this one I am wearing today- it may not be a full one but it does the job just lovely.
Today I have spent pretty much the entire day in the kitchen baking some delicious cakes. Dressing up and feeling cute puts more love into my baking and I enjoy the time all the more so. It is like a special occasion, even if it is just baking in my home. The colors and ruffles of this adorable and fashionable apron help to keep me motivated and going. How can you not feel cheery wearing something so bright and happy?
It makes cooking an even more enjoyable experience for me, and I do love to cook! I think next on my list may be a fashionable oven mitt- that could certainly be inspiring. I am still on the quest for an apron like the one I remember growing up with, but it won’t stop me from having fun until then.
