Here's another item I've never questioned before: dressing gowns. I've always had one, but never one I particularly liked. And why are they so often white (not good for cooking or eating in) and long (bulky to wash and dry)?
I found a warm, fleece hooded jacket recently that looked so cosy I didn't want to take it off. I noticed it matched a pair of my pyjamas, so I bought it and ditched the dressing gown.
My jacket is warmer to wear in the evenings than my dressing gown, and of course I can wear it during the day as well if I want to. It will also be more versatile for travelling.
