We had that one day in Portland last week. Ruby left for the coast with Andy’s mom, sister and our niece while Andy, Margot and I cruised around the city. It was fun and so different to be with only Margot. We make an effort to create opportunities for one-on-one time with each of our kids but not one kid with both parents. It was good and we will do more of it.
Our time together began with cupcakes and lunch with our dear, inspiring friend Holly. Our next stop was to visit Popina, a swimwear boutique that has been a dig sponsor for the last several years. I’d only visited online and was eager to see the storefront and pick out my new favorite bathing suit. I was bummed to miss meeting Popina owner Will, whom I’ve emailed with for years. We texted while I was in the store. It was cool to get smiley face messages from him while I shopped.
The shop was rad with a big ol’ dreamy sewing room in the back, friendly staff and an array of retro swimwear to flatter every body.
I had a personal shopping advisor.
She chose a lime green sting bikini with fringe. I chose something a little different.
I really, really love my new suit! It isn’t listed online but is available for purchase from the Portland store. Particularly, I love that the bottoms strategically hug and cover in all the right places and the top comes in bra sizes (built-in underwire with concealed adjustable back closure!) ensuring a perfect fit. I can lounge in this suit and I can cross Montana rivers in this suit! I feel awesome in this suit.
Popina bathing suits are available locally in Missoula at Betty’s Divine!
