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.
