Poll:

Is it horrible to do my yard work in a swimsuit?
I'm trying to multi-task here: get some sun & get some work done.
Would that just be completely white trash?

Honest answers here.
I don't want the neighbors talking...but then again, I don't want the farmer's/golfer's tan either.

Maybe I should just lay out, and pay someone to do the yardwork, right.
Oh, and while I'm at it---i should get a cabana boy to bring me drinks.
Where's that winning lottery ticket when you need it?

OK, I'm southern, so I see nothing wrong with this. Of course, when I used to mow the lawn in a bathing suit, it was a suit with shorts on over it. So maybe that's an option?

I used to mow in a swimsuit--either a one piece with shorts over or a two-piece (when I was a teenager) with shorts. I found I mostly only got sun on my shoulders and arms.

I wouldn't dare now, though. Not because I think it's white trash--because I don't like the way I look in a swimsuit.

Puh-leeze. If pasty jiggly guys can mow without their shirts on, I see no problem with doing yardwork in your swimsuit. Alternately, get a spaghetti strap tank top and wear that.

If I was your neighbor, I would sit in my house and laugh hardily at you. Yard work in a bathing suit! HA!

I am thinking that yard work in a swimming suit is not white trash!! I think with shorts over the bottoms you are good to go! I agree if pasty jiggly guys should be allowed surly someone as adorable as you should be allowed!! :)

I do yard work in a tank top since my suits are all tankinis and two piece tank style outfits (good coverage and easy for bathroom breaks at Schlitterbahn). I do pull out a bathing suit every now and then, but I mostly wear it in the back yard when doing yard work.

But, I definitely sport the tank top in the front yard. That, and SPF 30 (no skin cancer, girl!).

I don't really see anything wrong with it. I probably wouldn't do it, but that's just me. My husband and his brother still bring up how they used to make fun of his neighbor for doing yard work/mowing in her bikini top. She wasn't fat...she wasn't old...but they were young and dumb. I have teenage neighbors, so I fear being laughed at I guess.

Not me...but then again no one should be forced to see me in a bathing suit.

Hey, great blog! Thanks for leaving a comment on mine, too - even if you don't cook!

Go in the nude! That will take care of tan lines. Lol!

psssh who needs the bathing suit... garden in your birthday suit!

lol...

first, what kind of swimsuit are we talking? full coverage one piece or string bikini??

either way...i'm thinking the neighbors will TOTALLY be talking about you...but does it really matter if that's the best thing they have to do??

i'd definitely go for a skinny tank or tube top with shorts...but i look forward to hearing what you decide!! = )

I'd try to avoid things that will require you to be on all fours or other precarious positions!

I've done it. My neighbors still talk to me. And about me. Whatever!

Nothing wrong with it at all, just don't mow the lawn like that. Nothing like having a rock hit by the spinning blade smack you in the bare leg at 200 mph to convince you of that!
