When I’m entertaining guests, my usual strategy is to select and put aside a fabulous outfit, pull on something old and slobby to cook in, only to notice three hours later that time’s up and I’ll have to greet my friends in the same filthy old rags I’d started work in. I’m usually still pulling on my best shoes by the dessert course…
The answer is, of course an apron. And happily there are plenty out there that are far from frumpy! The ‘cupcake apron’ pictured above is part of a range of pinup-inspired aprons by Etsy seller World Famous Aprons, who has a nice selection of printed pinnies, including polka-dot, leopard and zebra. It’s so pretty I can’t imagine wanting to take it off!
