So today while I was in Target I decided to browse the string bikinis. Now little did I not realize that I would be subjecting myself to self-destructive behavior.
Here's the thing: Target has millions of string bikinis that I have long since outgrown. However, little did I know that they have the "next step" of mix and match bikini tops and bottoms with fuller cuts and more style options for the customer who's still hot enough to wear a two-piece, but needs more support that a string can offer.
As I picked up the bikini bottom with a skirt ruffle I asked myself, "Is this what my life has come to?" Before I could get the words out I looked in the horrid dressing room mirror under the disgracing "wal-mart-esque" lighting. From that moment on, my bikini life as I knew it took a victorious turn.
That bikini bottom that I thought was so "old lady" turned out to be my new best friend. Total cost: $37.50. I am happy to report that I totally surpassed my potential cuteness and will be struttin' around the beach WITHOUT shorts this year. Yay me!
