The pool is open...it's officially bathing suit season. While Mischief and Mayhem have been counting the days until it opened, I've been counting something else...calories. My muffin top has morphed into a full blown bundt cake. Inner tube are cute on kids, not on Mommies.
I need a bathing suit that covers it all up...and stays UP while chasing kids around the pool or rescuing them from hermit crabs and toddler toppling waves. By the way...I don't want to see anyone else's bundt cake or muffins either.
What do I want? My Mema's cute beach ensemble from the 1950's. Her ruffled top and modest shorts perfect for a walk on the beach.
Modest yet sophisticated suits from an earlier era. Accessorized with red lipstick and curves.
Unlikely I'll ever find the bathing suit that suits all of my needs. So maybe I'll just slip some of this into the drinks and snow cones at the pool. Everyone will be wearing skirted suits by the end of the summer!
