Modern Aprons from The Hip Hostess

After hours of being in the kitchen this past week, I came to realize I am in desperate need of a new apron. Don’t get me wrong, mine did its job of keeping me clean- however it just isn’t “me.” The ruffles I like- the palm tree print- not so much. After browsing the fabulous selection of modern aprons from the gals over at The Hip Hostess, I just had to share some of my favorites with you.

They have really chic demi style aprons like this one called Black a la Mode.

Here are three of their popular sheath style aprons. I am messy in the kitchen so I prefer the full coverage of the sheath style. My favorite is the Avocado a la Mode shown here in the center.

Can it get any cuter than this? My youngest daughter is always helping me in the kitchen- I am smitten over these Sweet Petite aprons!

The Hip Hostess even offers chic tea towels that match the fabrics from the aprons… I love this! You can pair a demi apron with a tea towel to create a truly impressive hostess gift.

Okay, so now have I got you thinking you also need a new apron? Sorry about that- I just couldn’t resist!

I absolutely adore stationery so when I got the chance to review a new design from Linda & Harriett, I was thrilled! They kindly sent me a box of their newest note card design: Paper Doll Note Cards. A gorgeous card box arrived, filled with 6 fold over note cards & envelopes. Each note card letter pressed with a yellow & charcoal paper doll pattern that is just adorable! Accompanied with light gray envelopes, these note cards have such a whimsical yet modern feel- I am loving them!
