We don’t know about you, but by the time March hits, we are ready for some sun. The days are getting longer, but they don’t seem to be getting much warmer. After weeks of rain or snow (and likely some sniffles and shivers), we start plotting our escape. Spring Break isn’t just for college students and kids in elementary school; we all deserve a little getaway. Which is why we’ve launched a host of new swim styles (plus a bunch of other adorable goodies as well!).
To help you on your way, we’ve put together a little list of Spring Break Must-Haves.
1. Sun Protection: We always need to care for our skin, but it’s especially important when we haven’t been exposed to UV rays in several months. Nothing ruins a warm weather adventure like a heat rash or a sunburn, so we’ve got you covered (literally). Our Lake Sunshirt is an excellent long-sleeved zip-up layer for sunny surf sessions. The half-zip short-sleeved Dawson rashguard will help protect those high exposure areas like your back and your shoulders while still keeping you cool enough to tackle any outdoor adventure that comes your way. Both protective layers pair perfectly with the Mustique Reversible Bottoms when you’re in the water or could be coupled with the Bonfire Pant in White Palms for a stroll along the beach as the sun goes down.
2. Swim (of course!): If you’re getting away for a shorter period of time, you might want to pack light, but you still want options. Enter the Sanitas Reversible Top and the Sanitas Reversible Bottom. Basically it’s two bathing suits in one. Plus, the Sanitas top provides excellent coverage and support for more athletic ventures. It’s also the perfect top for a hot yoga class or sweaty sauna session.
Similarly, the Dahlia Top is stylish and fashion forward, yet has a thicker chest band that provides support and a host of new adorable colors and patterns. The scoop neck La Jolla Reversible Top will keep your girls in place for high impact activities, but the strappy back reminds you that it’s still spring break, baby! Not feeling a bikini this trip, then look no further than our new Villa One Piece. Whether you're sunbathing by the pool or take a dip in the ocean, this styling V tank one piece gives just enough coverage and flatter in all the right places.
3. Out on the Town: No matter where you go (or stay) for Spring Break or future vacays, you’ll want to end your day of sun with a cocktail or mocktail somewhere fun or funky. The La Jolla Dress rocks a strappy back, and the wet/dry fabric and built-in shelf bra make it a favorite dress to throw into a beach or pool bag. And no trip would be complete without the flowy, feminine detailing of the Kendall Dress. This piece can easily be dressed up with wedges and earrings or dressed down with flip flops and beachy waves in your hair.
Whether it’s for a week, a weekend, or a single spa day with an extra long session in the steam room, our new swim styles and colors will help brighten up a weary winter wardrobe and get you ready to set off in search of sunshine.
Sometimes a good old fashion classic is exactly what the occasion calls for. Whether you're finding shade under a palm tree somewhere tropical, sitting poolside or enjoying some nice weather at home, give the Classic Margarita a go this month. Want to spice it up? Try adding tropical fruits, such as mango, for a twist on the classic. Don’t forgo the salt rim; it adds a kicky element to the tart flavors. Drink with tacos, and pretend you’re at a beachside taco shack. Get the full recipe here.
A warm weather vacay, new bikini, Classic Margarita in hand and the perfect song to cruise along to. Our song choice this month is Devotion by Pure Bathing Culture. Pure Bathing Culture give you all the summertime feels with their new release "Devotion" from their upcoming album Night Pass, out on April 26. It gives a classic soft-rock, 80's pop feel and we couldn't be happier about it. Throw this jam on, grab that drink, and kick your feet back.
