The Pearly Story Behind "Dusting in Pearls"


I always feel like a walking paradox. I can get out in the garden with my shovel and sledgehammer and love every dusty dirty minute I'm out there. I spend the majority of my life dressed in my "grubbies". Yet there's a part of me deep down inside that still likes "the frillies", "the pearlies", and "the sparklies"--all the pretty things. Maybe it's all the great classic Hollywood movies I watched as a kid. I don't know. All I know is that I can be dirty and sweaty and still want to put on heels when it isn't practical; buy the prettiest apron even if it will get dirty; and don pearls when all I'm going to be doing is dusting and vacuuming the house. It doesn't make sense. It doesn't have to. I've decided to claim it, celebrate it, and have fun with it... and create some "pearly" goodness along the way.

Jessie Steele Aprons

As always, click on any of the images in this post for more information

I have recently discovered the line of adorable and feminine aprons from Jessie Steele. They are so cute, retro, and girlie. Some of her aprons come in a full style for complete coverage while others are the half apron great for the hostess.

I have to start out with the pink and brown polka dot apron by Jessie Steele because pink and brown is my favorite color combo. The polka dots just put it over the top for me. Jessie Steele also offers kid's size aprons for the little junior divas out there. So cute!







I also love cherries--particularly any retro-style cherry motiff. So Jessie Steele's retro cherries aprons and coordinates caught my attention. This one is also available in a kid's size version for the diva-in-training.





Another motiff that always catches my eye is a great French motiff--eiffel towers, fleur de lis, poodles... So this cute half apron with coordinating oven mitt is a favorite of mine too.

I LOVE those aprons! I'm a stay-work at home mom, and I like to think of a cute apron as both part of my "work uniform," AND as a utilitarian accessory. The cherries are so sweet!
