It’s May and summer is just around the corner and I decided it was time to buy myself a new swimsuit. The last swimsuit I bought was purchased a year ago and most certainly does not fit anymore. Not even close. So, having some Old Navy credit card rewards hanging around, I spent part of Wednesday perusing their website and finally settled on this ol’ number right here.
|Women’s Halter Control Max Swimsuit from Old Navy|
Obviously the whole “control max” part won me over and I love that it’s got a slight retro vibe. Plus the color is to die for. Of course, I ordered this online without being able to try it on so once it shows up it could be interesting. My body shape is between a pear and an hour glass: losing weight has managed to even things out a bit but there is still some size differences between my bust and my hips, with hips being bigger. So if the bust area is a big loose I’m hoping I can just tie the halter tighter to make up for it but we’ll see once it actually arrives.
Thing is, a few hours after ordering the swimsuit I made a rather startling realization.
For those non-Whovians, this is the TARDIS. Y’know, that thing I dressed up as for Halloween. The time and space machine used on Doctor Who. This is a sci-fi/fantasy pop culture icon and I am such a geek that I managed to inadvertently and subconsciously purchase a TARDIS blue swimsuit. I mean, seriously?!
Now I just need to find a pool to crash for the summer. Hopefully one that’s bigger on the inside.
Are you ready for swimsuit season?
Love from the ashes,
