All about Aprons

After posting about the giveaway yesterday, I got a little sidetracked looking at aprons online—especially after reading all of the sweet comments! Which is not a bad use of an afternoon, I assure you, even though endeavor was purely for fun since I have two aprons that I love in my apartment that I constantly use, particularly when I'm either baking or mixing salad. I also have one that lives at my parents house for me to use when I am there. It was my Grandmom Mary's and it's a full apron with a Liberty-esque teal floral print. It makes me so ridiculously happy to know it's there in the drawer just waiting for me—and I'm planning to use it a lot this coming weekend as I have promised my family homemade pasta for Easter dinner!
Despite all of that, I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds in case any of you are looking for a new apron or just need a dose of inspiration.

Ice Milk Aprons- Pecan Orchard Pleasantries
I love that this one is simple yet feminine with the slight gathering at the waist.

EllynAnne Geisel's "Mary"
An apron by EllynAnne, which I adore for the sheer volume of the skirt. Oh and the yellow and blue color combo sure doesn't hurt!
Posy Trifle Apron
What can I say, I do enjoy ruffles. Anthropologie has a pretty great selection of both vintage-inspired and brightly colored aprons.

Birds Pink (adult)
I chose this one, which is perfect for spring, because when I came across it, the birds outside my apartment window happened to be making a lot of lovely noise. I've been working from home lately and it's really interesting to hear the rhythms of my surroundings during the day. I definitely didn't realize how many birds hang out in the courtyard and it's been such an unexpected bonus. I live in a brownstone in Harlem and am lucky to have a south facing apartment in the back of the building. It gets a ton of sunlight all day and is mostly quiet—apart from the birds (which I love) and the occasional tune of a Mister Softee ice cream truck (which I love less since it tends to get stuck in my head).
