The Legacy of Home: The Comfort of a House Coat

I love wearing a house coat. Or I use to love them. When it was cool enough to wear them. My favorite was my red one.

I also miss the night gowns and robes my mom use to make.

What did you call them? 

House Coats or Bath Robes?

    Those are nice old photos. We called them by both, house coats, or just robes. I don’t bother with them anymore, just have my long-sleeved Tshirt and jammy pants.

    I recently got my big plush purple bath robe out of the closet because it’s gotten quite chilly here and my annual furnace tune-up isn’t until next week. I wish they sold the lovely garments you’ve pictured, because those are PERFECT when you want to lounge around the house and you don’t want to bother getting dressed, but people will keep dropping in unannounced. It’s disconcerting to see someone coming up the path when you’re still in your underwear or lack thereof! These housecoats were PERFECT for that sort of situation IMHO!


Please Comment. I don't care how long or how short. I want to hear from you.
