I am NOT an early riser, at about 11 am PST I finally get a gonin' and I have breakfast on the table

I'm still not "dressed" as some might consider, but I'm descent when I walk into my kitchen

Hausfrau, the one thing I found when I worked on a hot line that worked well for the swamp syndrome you're finding, was 100% cotton sports bras, and another 100%cotton tshirt underneath my chef coat.  I don't know how the cotton sports bra thing would work out for ladies with a fuller figure, but for myself I have a boyish figure so that works for me.  One of the ladies in my department is larger and she swears by the 3/$15 cotton sports bras from walmart so.. there you have it...

 

Now, the more layers I have on the better as I work in a climate controlled environment so our food is never in the danger zone no matter how long we are working with it...

OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??

At home I pretty much don't change what I wear when I walk into the kitchen.. unless I have a fancy top on or nice dress then I might put on an apron or just change althgether...  it really depends on what I am going to be doing too... I wouldn't do my housework in my nicest clothes, but I do like to look nice around the house and in general... especially since I spend most of my days in baggy pants, a chef coat, horrible awful terrible steel toed shoes and at least two other layers under my coat to keep me warm while I work...

 

That reminds me.. I bought two new pairs of flats after work today and I love them both.. one are red with bows (reminds me of the ruby slippers sans the heel and sequins) from The Wizard of Oz and the others were basic black flats.  For the first time in forever my miserable feet have been happy in flats... those steel toed shoes I have to wear for work are simply murder on my feet...

Not quite like that kgirl...  the heels would kill me!   They're the red ones in the middle of this pic

and they're going to look super cute with a steel grey leopard print dress that I'm making using this pattern

I didn't do the contrast collar like they did in the picture... I figured the print was busy enough.  I have to fix it today though because I messed up the armholes on one side... never sew after a glass of wine because there are always mistakes to fix after that!

I hope it's ok to revive this thread.

 

My kitchen signature "look" is usually baggy cargo pants, and tight top, but minimal cleavage exposure. Since I have to bend over a lot I don't like giving people a show, but I am fit and eat healthy so I like to show my shape.

 

I used to sport high-watered checkered pants with Dansko clogs, super cute look, but I lost both the pants and the clogs sometime during a move. Would like that to be my summer kitchen look again sometime.

 

I used to wear make-up for work, but don't anymore. Perhaps I'll dab a little mascara if i'm feeling particularly hit that morning. I always wear my hair up now that it's medium long again. Small earings. I put on my chef jacket when service hour begins.

 

I would love to one day own a shannon reed jacket or veru shirt, and apron, but there's no way in hell I would spend 150.00 on a jacket that gets abused  and bleached on a weekly basis.

 

 

Kane, I'm also into cute aprons as well. I like to sport a black waitress apron with my white chef jacket. I also have two vintage aprons that I purchased an antique shop.
