Not a cute swim suit. Not a lie by the pool, take a nap, get a tan suit. Not a travel to Hawaii suit.
A boring ol' pool suit. Whomp whomp.
Some people, when shopping for a training suit, would go practical. They'd look for a dark color in a conservative cut. Some people would shop for suit like this.
I am not some people. I am That Pink Girl.
I like glitter and fun colors.
Now, let's be clear, I don't need a new suit, I want a new suit. I'm just ready for another option. Dolfin isn't kidding around; their suits are well made. My Rainbow Throwup suit is even reversible if I wanted to swim in just lime green. You know, if the rainbow, glitter train wrek was a little too much one morning.
Ladies, you can snag this on clearance at Swim Outlet, hurry before they sell out!
Gentlemen, don't be discouraged, they have obnoxious suits for y'all too! In fact, Steve did an entire post on his Dolfin Jammers. Clearly this man has taste!
So, like most Saturday nights, I was
glued to the computer casually checking out Twitter and noticed that Erin or maybe it was Drum was looking for a new suit. I suggested Swimoutlet, my go to for suits. And Erin came up with this gem. Of course, I knew immediately that I must have it.
Pure awesomeness, right?
They have others that are pretty cool, like this one.
And this one is pretty fun too. (I'm the oblvious pink fish, not the shark, clearly)
But I'm pretty much set on this beauty.
Lauren has forbidden me to purchase this suit. She won't say why, she just shakes her head and says firmly, "No ma'am." I have no idea why; it is a perfectly lovely suit. Plus, she doesn't swim with me. It's not like she's going to have to be seen with me in public!
There is a method to my madness. Hear me out. A. Getting my tail into that cold water so early in the morning is never pleasant. I don't look forward to a swim like I do a run. So I find that a little humor helps entice me and 2. The bright colors will make me hard to miss. I mean whoever said, "Hey, where's that girl in the non-descript black suit?" But they might say, "I haven't seen that idiot in the rainbow throwup glitter get up in a few minutes. Maybe we should see if she drowned!" See? Genius on both accounts.
Haven't decided if I'll take the plunge (ba dum dum) and splurge for the Wonder Woman suit. Still considering...
What about you? Do you like a more traditional pool suit or do you go for the crazy fun designs?
