I've acquired quite a collection of vintage aprons, and it seems such a pity to see them waste away in some drawer, so I've decided to start wearing them as summer tops. Some may be a bit risque as halters, but hey, life was born to be interesting. I'm really digging the apron smock top. I've collected a handful. You might recall this one, worn a few days ago.
"but hey, life was born to be interesting."
This one is my newest acquisition. I got it from Violet Folklore at the Bespoked/Be Quiet Vintage Fashion Bazaar. Also worn is my new flower-button ring, another great buy from the Bespoked/ Be Quiet shoo-doo, from Chandra of Juniper Goods. Cute, eh?
I keep forgetting to show the backs of these smock tops. Kinda cute. They are open-backed with a single button at the neck, but the apron tie keeps me modest. You don't see anything more than a sliver of spine. And I'm quite pleased that my "muffin top" is hidden, even as I show scraps of skin. And I can not wait to show you the "plaid tuxedo" apron. Oh my.

Nice apron and you carry it off well. Love the ring too.

Love this post! I have a similar apron that belonged to my Great-Grandmother that I wear all the time.
Oh my goodness! What a clever idea!
There are such pretty aprons out in the world, and I always wish I could wear them more often.
Yours is no exception.
That apron is so adorable, you are going to start an apron revolution!
