With last year’s tropical depression, us girls just wanna have sun. That’s why, when new Cassandra Rull (pronounced “rule”) swimsuit pics started trickling in on our Instagram feed, we were stoked. Batches of bralette bikini tops and sporty short bottoms in color-punchin’ prints were nice reminders that joyful beach days are right upon us.

Kaua‘i-born Rull says this latest spring/summer collection is a definite departure from her playful dresses and tops she started with in 2008, which were an ode to her free-spirited post-college days and lifestyle. As time passed, along came waves of change in her designing and wardrobe choices—she ditched sexy for surf-y and “took a couple of years to focus on perfecting my swimsuit patterns and finding the best fabrics,” she says. Today, as a beaming newish mom, her life and suit of happiness is plenty different, in a great way. read more
