As much as it makes M.E. feel like a little old lady and somewhat like my mother, I have found that wearing a snap-front, pocketed house coat to be extremely practical for M.E.
I love that I can do house work and not worry about getting dirt. Nursing is a breeze and I'm not concerned about the spit up. The pockets are great for clothes pins and various lost items I find throughout the day, i.e. legos and pacifiers.
And I've always been a big fan of house shoes, so those are a no-brainer and these lovely pink ones the Man bought for M.E. the week before Babe arrived - which often find themselves serving as shin guards for LG.
Or make that calf guards.
Is it ok to be embracing the housecoat + houseshoes uniform at my age?
I really don't care. It saves my limited wardrobe from getting dirty and its comfy.
