Get Skinny With Bikini

As I approach my first run of the year this Saturday, I've needed a little something extra to get me really going for the rapidly approaching Memorial Day holiday weekend, but even more importantly...

POOL SEASON!

I did it. I bought a bikini and not a tankini, an actual baaaaaaakini.

I never thought in a million years I wouldn't just buy a bikini as the summer months approached, but then I had a child and then came life and then came "letting myself go" or "drinking too much wine and not working some of it off" a little more than I am comfortable with.

This is a new year.  I'm not shooting for Gisele or Gwyneth or Jennifer or Elle's bods (although Elle is amazing), even though it would be nice, but I just want to feel comfortable in a bikini again.  I'm not wearing one if I'm going to be rolling around in it, if you know what I mean.

Tankinis and one pieces are effing hot in the heat of the St. Louis summers and I don't want to be hot at the pool.  That's dumb.

I'm well into my third month of Operation Badass, so in another 11 or so weeks when I hit the lake for Memorial Day I should be ready.  Right?

We're not doing the vacay thing this summer (more on that later) so Mia and I will be spending a LOT of time at the pool.  A LOT!

Here they are and by they, I couldn't help but pick up one for Mia too.


Hers, Old Navy, $10.  Mine, Tarjay, $28

And you though we wouldn't match?  Shame on you.

PS - I'm kind of becoming obsessed with neon again.  Brings me right back to my childhood.

Riiiiiiiiight back.

Damn. That is one hot little bikini! The neon trend is kinda growing on me!!

When you say you're going to the lake for Memorial day...are you talking about THE lake? As in the Lake of the Ozarks?? My dad lives down there so we are there pretty much every weekend in the summer. Perhaps a playdate for the little Miss and Mr is in out future??
