The first time Chris and I met, we were on, in, and around the Rhode Island State House, passing through its archways and clambering up and down those majestic marble stairs. This time, we moved away to admire the iconic building from a new perspective.
Instead of a grey Saturday morning downtown, Chris and I decided to meet on a balmy Tuesday evening at the top of Congdon Street. Lined with pretty little trees and historic old homes, Prospect Park perches high on the hill, where it overlooks the skyline through a wrought iron fence. There’s an aura of peace in the tiny park, as couples huddle onto benches pressing their noses together, college students sketch their surroundings, a lone yogi sits in sukhasana. Providence shows off to the beat of the setting sun. This city wears amber well.
The ombré design of this Intermezzo leotard could not have complimented the sky more perfectly that night. It’s delicate grey dip-dye echoes our old marble friend as it reflects the sky’s twilight performance.
Every dancer loves a good pinch in their leo, and this beauty has two: one in the front and one in the back. Its sleek cut pulls in a bit at the waist, and the tightly knit lycra keeps a strong hold, creating an overall slimming effect. I prefer my leotards snug this way (I felt totally supported by the full lining), but if you are into a looser feel, I would recommend sizing up.
In music, an intermezzo is a piece which fits between two other, more dramatic, entities. Like the golden hour of sunset linking day to night, this leotard marries dark and light with its elegant subtle fade.

Some truly beautiful photos and a beautiful leotard too. Rhode Island is one of the places that I’ve always wanted to go visit. These images have given me a little more motivation to go!
Cheryl, thank you! Rhode Island is such a beautiful place. I definitely encourage you to visit, and if you’re stopping in Providence, here’s my 24-hour guide: a day in providence ;)
