Bikini or a bathing suit? Which one does it for you when it comes to lounging at the pool? Personally I like bikinis and my favourite is a green leopard print one. Since I buy swimwear about once every 10 years and just keep wearing my stuff until the elastic unravels my annual coming-out is accompanied by Sarah moaning: 'Muuum, are you still wearing this bikini?!? It's soooooo embarrassing! You've got a face on your bottom and eyes on you nipples.' (I will have to write about the question of age appropriate dressing at some other time…)
I don't want to spoil your day, and I do draw a line at showing myself in swimwear in virtual spaces (I might one day actually need to apply for a job) – but I thought Harriet looked wonderful in my (nearly vintage, naturally) Missoni bathing suit – and the straw hat looks better on her than on me, too. Dang.
bathing suit: missoni, hat: from shop in Arezzo, armbands: from market in Florence
