Swimming Suit Season-Oh How I Loathe Thee!!

She wore an 'Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Pink Polka Dot Bikini'... Isn't this just the cutest thing ever? I got this for Addaline today at Target for $6.88, what a deal! I thought it was too adorable and just had to show it off before I move on to the 'Big Girls' swimming suit topic (Sigh)!

So I have come to the conclusion that it is probably best for the residents at the local pool this summer and the residents of Jamaica, where we are going in 3 weeks, if I no longer don a 2 piece bathing suit. Having 2 kids is not flattering on the 'ol tummy so goodbye 2 piece, hello 1 piece (tear). This first purple one I found at Target today and I thought it was super cute but didn't try it on after I looked at the price tag, it is $35 which in my opinion is a little pricey... after all we are still in a recession here people. I'm going to wear the thing occasionally on the weekends and I am NOT willing to pay that much for a suit. IF I get desperate in the next 3 weeks and can't find anything for the trip I MIGHT go back and see if it's on sale yet. That's typically the trend at Target, I buy something there, and the next week it's on sale and I'm TICKED!

This black suit is from Old Navy (my all time favorite store). I think it's really cute and very stylish... the best part about it, this bad boy is currently on sale for $12.50, WHOO HOO!!

I also like this one from Old Navy as well but I'm not sure if the little charms dangling off the hoop are for me, maybe if I tried it on and liked it I could have Gerrad take them off with some pliers or something?! This one is also on sale for $12.50. Oh how I love when Old Navy has sales!

So which one is your favorite? I'll take a poll before I go and try these on this weekend!

So, I vote for Addaline suit... =)! Just kidding! I gate that suits are so pricey. I picked up a "cheap" one at wally world for 20.00 and I thought that was high! I like the black ON one!!
Thanks for the comments on the blog- love getting feedback and can't wait to have Addaline give you your gift!

Those are cute, A tankini or one piece is all for me too! But I find it more appealing these days as I get older and become more modest!

I REALLY like the ones from ON! Those are my favs! And DON'T remove the jewel things...I think they're sassy!! Either way, you'll rock 'em :)

I like the last ON one. Just be sure the jewels don't burn you in the hot sun. BTW, if you ever buy anything at Target and it goes on sale within the next 2 weeks, you can take your receipt in and get a refund for the price difference. I love bargains & rarely ever pay full price for anything. Have a great time on vacation- I'm jealous!
