I forgot my bathingsuit. Now that we’re in a hotel with a pool (& one that i feel ok to walk around barefoot in) we decided this was a problem. Since my bathingsuit is technically ‘broken’ anyway, we decided it would be acceptable to run by target & buy a new one.
1) It has become increasingly more difficult to find non-bikini’s that are not uber-ugly or uber low-cut (i can only assume the designers are trying to fix the problem of tankini’s being somewhat modest by making them cover as little cleavage as possible).
2) Try as I might to prove my opinion wrong, conventional one-piece bathingsuits just don’t look right on me.
So after trying on about 5 suits….I settled on a “swim dress”. I only picked it up as a half-joke, but it ended up being pretty cute (ryan verified). Even as I was putting it on I said to ryan, “nothing says “I’m a mommy’ like the bathingsuit skirt”. To which he replied, “but you ARE a mommy”. While I definitely think this suit is not your typical “mommy/old lady swim dress”….it clearly says “swim dress” on the label. There goes any thread of hope that perhaps i’m still clinging to coolness.
Here’s hoping that I actually get to use it this weekend, now that we went through all that.
