Intern Files: Splash into Spring
Posted on March 08 2015
It's been a while. After what has been an awfully long, white winter, it is finally time for spring. Since Mother Nature doesn't seem to agree with my timing, I went to seek out a warmer destination- even if that is just across the river in New Jersey.
My boyfriend and I headed to Atlantic City to celebrate our first anniversary.
In my suitcase, I packed the Palm D'Or Strapless Zip Bustier with me- my first time trying Robyn Lawley swimwear- because I knew the hotel had a luxurious indoor pool. For just a while, we sat poolside in the sunlight with yummy drinks, and it really felt like summer.
After staring at the amazing Hey Gorgeous swimwear collection, I've been dreaming about getting away from the snowy streets of NYC. So getting the chance to sip this mojito in a new swimsuit was pure paradise.
Though I was a bit shocked to see how pale I was (wow! so pale!), I sure was eager to have an occasion to wear a swimsuit instead of a snowsuit. I had my eye on the Robyn Lawley collection forever- so many beautiful prints and very sexy, flattering styles. Though I had touched the swimwear before, I never really tried it on until now.
This particular suit, the Palm D'Or Strapless Zip One Piece, caught my eye- I loved the colors and I knew the black side paneling would make for a really flattering silhouette and the fade would help create a small waist. When I saw Robyn herself wearing the bikini version in Sports Illustrated, I realized the Palm D'Or was the one for me! I also am a big fan of versatility- the straps are not only adjustable but they are also removable! Plus the zipper down the front is a trendy and useful touch.
Sometimes I get nervous about strapless things and their ability to stay up, you know, due to the whole no straps thing. But this suit really had a bra-like fit with silicone lining for support, and a clasp in the back. It was never an issue, the suit stayed in place the whole time.
With adjustable straps and a clasp in the back- this suit has details that all swimwear ought to.
This was just a preview to my spring break- I have fun, warm vacation plans right around the corner. And just in time, too! We just released a Spring Break Collection full of fresh picks for your (and my) spring getaway. Come back soon to see what I pack with me on my trip to New Orleans for spring break, and follow along on my Instagram, @ashbyvose!
