So then this apron arrived at my house. Navy. Linen. Simple. Inspired by similar ones found in Japan and meant to be worn for cooking, gardening, crafting or....if you are Melissa, just wearing because It's Apron Day!
And since this lovely appeared in my house, I feel like most days are apron days!
Ok, so here's my review:
I LOVE IT. No wait. I didn't get that quite right.
I looooooooooooooove it!
Why do I love it? So many things. The weight. Not flimsy. But not heavy. That's the beauty of linen! Also, if you don't know this about linen, it gets softer the more you wash it. The apron was a bit stiff brand new, but after one wash, it developed this wonderful FLOW to it, you know what I mean? A swishy, soft drape that I just adore.
I made a little collage of the different colors Jill has available. Aren't they SO AWESOMELY CUTE?? Ok hello, I did not fully realize there was a pink. I adore navy, so I requested navy, but now that I see this pink color......I'm going to need this pink one in my life at some point.

I wear it ALL the time! I wear it as a jumper over nearly everything! I love it so much! It has a crossover open back, did I mention? You slip it on and off over your head or you can step into it. It hits me slightly below my knees, it's the perfect length. I'm just barely five feet and five inches. If you were taller, it would be just as darling, as it would be more like a cool smock type of affair. (yes, smocks are cool. that was aimed at my husband, ha ha ha.)
