Just Regular Ol' Me

Stumble Upon Toolbar


I have this Land's End swim skirt that has lasted for three years now. (That, my friends, is quality!) I really do love it because it is a nice length for the amount of coverage I like and the fabric is thick enough so that I don't feel like I am wearing lingerie in public.

This year I ordered this cute halter swim top to go with it, only in this print.

Got all that?

So, when I tried on my new swim top for the first time, my seven year old stared at me for a long moment before she announced her opinion.

Her: "That looks like it was meant for someone young and thin."

Me: "Are you saying I am old and fat?"

Her: "No, but you know. You are just...regular."

Nice to know.

Don't forget, Ladies, you need to have nerves of steel to have kids who possess the power of speech.

(AKA "Old Fatty")

I was eyeing that top in the catalog I got yesterday. I like it.

The top looks great to me! I tried on one similar but in a dark color the other day but the straps were too far out on my shoulders--didn't work for me unless I really had BROAD shoulders. Oh well, I will keep on looking!

I have that exact same skirt, only in pink. But since I've worn a maternity suit a time or three since I got it, it's held up incredibly well. Maybe I will replace the top next year... (Do love the skirt, though.)

LOL-- I think that top is adorable and if you can wear it GO FOR IT!

Last time I tried on swimsuits I had to take the kids in the dressing room with me. I think I had the oldest three and it was a couple years ago. But one of them, I can't remember if it was the oldest or second child said, "Mommy, why do your legs look like that?"

What I meant by "if you can wear it" was "if it fits you." I'd love to wear something so cute.

I bought my first Lands End swim suit this year and I love it. I'm hoping that I get several years use out of it.
