Our pool finally opened over the weekend, which we were completely excited about. Trouble was, we weren’t able to go this weekend. I had already booked three wedding venues for us to see, so no time to lounge poolside for us.
So finally, yesterday, Pete decided that after work was pool time. You know me. There’s no such time as after work. I seriously work 14 hours a day. But the weather was gorgeous so I had to take a break from working to sit out by the pool.
Plus, it gave me an excuse to wear the Posy Lane terry bath towel wrap for the first time. Since I got the wrap for review, it’s technically working to wear it. So yes, I was working poolside.
The wrap that I got, which could double as personalized shower wraps, was always intended to be my Summer 2013 beach cover up. I knew it wasn’t a dress that I would wear out after the beach, but it would be something quick and easy to throw on when we were going to the beach or pool (which we do every weekend. We’ve actually been to the beach every weekend since the second weekend in April. Love living in the south for that reason!).
The wrap circles around you and then holds itself together by the Velcro at the top. It’s so much easier than wrapping a towel around you and trying to stuff the corner into the top and hoping that it doesn’t fall down when you’re walking from the sand to your car.
Since I’m not planning on wearing this to the club, I don’t mind that it is completely non-form fitting. It’s really big and billowy, which is good for a cover up. I love that it’s made from terry cloth, so it will absorb when I’m dripping from the pool. I hate putting on a cute dress after the beach and soaking through it in certain areas. This wrap will definitely eliminate this problem.
Another problem this wrap gets rid of is losing your clothes in the wind. It’s happened to me a ton of times. I’ll be sitting in my chair, reading or relaxing, and next thing I know, my dress is halfway across the beach. And I start chasing after it. And then someone else who is a little closer and a little more equipped to run on the beach starts chasing after it, catches it, and has to walk my dress back to me. I smile, say thanks, and then decide that I need to stuff it deeper in my bag or just sit on it.
With this towel wrap, I actually draped it across the back of my chair and Velcro’d it closed. Done. It stayed on my chair all day and I didn’t have to worry about it. I know the wrap doesn’t have many “features” but this is my favorite feature of all.
If you choose, you can embroider the wrap for an extra $6. You choose your text, font, and color. I was going to put my name on mine, but it’s only four letters and would look kind of silly (to me at least). Plus, if anyone came to visit and wanted to borrow it, they would feel kind of weird wearing my name. So I decided to get “live.laugh.love” on it (two periods, no spacing, all lower case; my choosing). I absolutely love how it looks. It is really sewn on well so I don’t have to worry about a thread pulling and changing my saying to something like “gh.love” and then people would ask why i didn’t spell glove properly.
Posy Lane sells a bunch of other products that you can personalize, from tote bags to cutting boards. Be sure to check out the site.
Drugstore Divas was given this wrap for this review. All thoughts are mine.
