Beach babe—and her new beau! Lucy Hale was snapped rocking the cutest neon bikini while vacationing in Hawaii on Tuesday, June 30—but she wasn't alone! Hale not only brought her longtime BFF Annie Breiter to the islands, but also her new boyfriend, Anthony Kalabretta.
A source close to the PLL cast told Us Weekly, "They met through mutual friends and bonded over a lot of things—just having fun and their shared love of music. She has a thing for musicians." The insider added, "They celebrated her birthday together with her friends. She's been happier than I've seen her for awhile, enjoying her hiatus from the show."
It certainly looks that way. The brunette beauty, who was first spotted with Kalabretta at a Dodgers game on June 18, splashed in the sea while smooching her new love, then stretched her arms out to soak up the sun. She modeled the blush and neon yellow Zimmermann "Pivot Flip Bandeau Bikini" for the dip ($188, Bloomingdales.com).
But besties before boys! While Hale, 26, shared a few photos from her trip via Instagram, she made sure they only included her ladies. One cute pic featured Hale and Breiter enjoying a little pool time, while another showed the girls gussied up for a night out. Though the budding country crooner didn't caption the photos with words, she did use vacation-appropriate emojis.
