Dresses for Home

I think we can all agree, there is something so cozy and comfortable about cotton. Cool, absorbent and easy to care for, cotton is the principle clothing fibre of the world. 

Vintage ladies knew what they were doing when wearing cotton dresses during the day - particularly for housework. The dresses were easy to wash and clean up after a day of work. So speaking of work, after you ladies are done with your day at the office, wouldn't it be nice to come home and just slip on a comfortable cotton dress? I think so and do it all the time. Out of the office garb and into a housedress brings forth an anchored domesticity - that cocoon feeling we enjoy. A summer cotton dress with bare feet and a cocktail in hand....what could be more delightful?

All these cotton beauties are available at Rusty Zipper.

I am a stay at home momma and housewife so I live in my cotton house dresses! They're great for mommas because they are easily washed when you get baby food or spit up all over you! *lol* The hubby says he really likes it to come home and find me in one of my house dresses instead of sweat pants or jeans and a t shirt! Sure, cotton dresses are girly and all but I think they also say "I'm a lady, and I'm not afraid to be a -woman-"

yay for cotton! I feel like 90% of my wardrobe is polyester sometimes, and that just doesn't fly during the summer.
