My 18-month-old daughter is my swimwear idol. Girlfriend has zero inhibitions rocking an itty-bitty bikini in public. Of course, she would walk around in the buff at all times if I let her. After all, she is a baby. Nevertheless, I hope she always loves herself this much—parenting goals!
It's with this mission in mind that I've started wearing bikinis again. I'm replacing some of frumpy coverups, black one-pieces, and tankinis with bare-all bikinis, and leading by example. I want to show my kids that we should take pride in ourselves and our bodies—perfectly imperfect as they may be.
I couldn't help but buy matching mommy-and-me Marimekko for Target two-pieces when they first hit shelves a few months ago, and I'm perpetually on the hunt for other coordinating swim styles we can wear together at the beach or by the pool.
