This past weekend Bossy had the opportunity to join her friend Amy at the beach. Oh happy day! The promise of sun, salt air, waves — the terror of bathing suit season!
Bossy has never had a decent, flattering swimsuit her entire life. For one thing, the suit must prove its mettle in ocean waves and Vermont lakes. Bossy doesn’t need a bathing suit as much as a romping suit. Maybe this explains why Bossy’s bathing suit for the last decade has consisted of a jogging bra and a stretched tankini bottom with a built-in skirt:
But this year Bossy purchased a swimsuit at a very exclusive high end boutique named Target:
Bossy admits it’s a wee old fashioned, but Bossy enjoys its modesty. In fact, if Target manufactured one of these suits in a floor-length model, Bossy would have purchased it in every color:
Bossy didn’t even mind when Bossy’s friend Amy pointed out that Bossy’s suit is more like a beach cover-up than a suit. Bossy refers to that as one-stop shopping!
Bossy can sum up her attitude toward bathing suits in this way: Bossy would never ever never live in a warm climate.
