Cute Swimsuit Alert!

Today I found the pot of gold for swimsuits. I know, it's only swimsuits, but I've been wanting to get a new one for awhile and I've had no luck until now. This morning I was at Target and I couldn't believe the fantastic selection that was there, because in the past all they've had that I've seen are skimpy bikinis. I bet this new collection of stylish one- and two-pieces will sell out soon, because I think that many women want more coverage than what a bikini provides. I'm a big fan of those two-piece suits that have a cute little skirt on the bottom and a separate top. The only place I've been able to find really good ones are from Lands' End, but right now Target has an excellent selection of them in all different colors and designs and styles. There were so many that it was hard to decide what to get and I ended up buying two, plus two cover-ups (the selection of those is good too). Next week John and I start our parent-child swim class at the Y and I've been wanting to get a new suit for that. We're also going to the Caribbean in a few months and I've heard you should bring at least two swimsuits when you go there. Now I'm all set for that and my next quest is for a great pair of sunglasses. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Wow, what a difference to go from Christmas mode to beach mode, just like that!

You are so on top of things! I usually don't think about getting a swimsuit until it's too late and they are all picked over. Then I just end up with whatever. I buy so many swimsuits for the family every year that I usually end up being the last.

Can I tell you how much I heart Target? Unlike Kmart, Target items are so much nicer than Walmart but still less expensive than you would find elsewhere. And I really love their styles and colors.

Unfortunately, I have to curb my clothing purchases right now because I still haven't lost my baby poundage, and I can't spend too much money on clothes that I don't want to have fit me in a few months!! Otherwise, I would rush right out!

Alyson, get thyself to the store and buy yourself (oops, thyself) a good swimsuit as soon as possible before they all run out!

I agree Katie, Target is the best for the quality and style of the clothes. Once that pesky baby poundage is gone, reward thyself with new clothes!

Ahem. I'll expect some modeling soon...

Donna... don't you worry about a thing. We will go on a shopping spree (Peter's treat of course- haha!) before the vacation. Two bathing suits??? I don't think so. You can easily fit at least ten in a suitcase!

How many swimsuits are you planning on bringing? I went to Target again and saw another one that I liked so now I have three. I need to get a really good pair of sunglasses. I'm willing to spend good $$ on them. Mine broke this past week, and they were cheap ones anyway. Are you really going to come with us to the Caribbean? If so, you need to get your plane ticket and apply for your passport as soon as you can!
