I love the Gap. No, correction. I love the GAP OUTLET! They always have the most comfy, cute clothes that actually look good on me and my not-so-fit-mom-bod. Well, in my humble opinion they look good, meaning they don't make me look like the two-ton cow I feel like.
Recently I "liked" the Holland Gap Outlet fan page on facebook. Best. Move. Ever. This is how I found out that this whole weekend, everything in the store would be 40% off. My arm did NOT need to be twisted.
So today, on my day off, I counted up my allowance (perhaps a budget post to explain this in the future? don't know if that is interesting or not...), and decided I could spend $100 of my money on some new summer stuff. So off I went.
Deals is an understatement. I walked up to the cashier thinking I had maybe gone over my limit. I
A) I just can't wear anything that comes in two pieces...at least not until lose some weight. Even though there ARE people at the beach who show off the rolls, I do not want to be one of them.
B) no bathing suit takes off 30 pounds. sadly.
The best part about this bathing suit is that I wasn't looking for bathing suits. Gap Outlet had ONE one-piece so I thought, "what the hay, I'll try it on".
It's not my favorite. I don't automatically look svelte and stunning, but it works. And with the discount, it was only $17. Seriously. I could wear it once and it would be worth it.
My total bill for all that? $98.53. The receipt told me that I saved over $67! Cort was so impressed, he left and bought his own bathing suit for a whopping $15.
Sluiter Nation is ready for the beach!
