Here in the foothills of Colorado, it's been fluctuating between 70 degrees & snow. (Contrary to popular belief, it's quite mild all year round here; we usually register ~300 sunny days a year!) It did snow this past weekend, so we curled up & watched Frozen for the first time. Naturally, I started daydreaming about swimsuits (???). Not so much trying them on.....as my friend Kelly likes to ask: "Does this suit make my butt look like biscuit dough trying to escape from its tube?" Ironically, Kell is fit as a fiddle.
I've been trying to plan ahead for our family trip to Encinitas, CA this summer. We'll be squeezing in surfing, beach time, friends time, & relaxing at our beach cottage rental. So whilst ordering a couple new swimsuits for Quinn, I looked at some for myself. I used to be a bikini wearer but quite honestly, my modesty has slowly achieved the upper hand over the last couple years. Though I guess sucking in my stomach whilst running after a toddler is the best workout ever--just me? ;-) One piece swimsuits have come a long way (downright hot, some of them). I'm in the market for my first maillot & I'm actually quite excited!
I recently turned 35 & while I still snort at words like balls & Uranus, I'm obviously no spring chicken. While swimsuit shopping, I was gently reminded of that......I sorta wanted to throw a cover-up over each one of those swimsuit models & feed them. ;-) I also thought that while my 20s were fun, I wouldn't want to relive them. My 30s have brought about a contentment that I wouldn't trade for my youth.
I know, right. All this from just swimsuits ;-)
Do you have any (one piece) swimsuit recs, friends?
