Going from jet setting around the world on The Bachelor to leading a normal(ish) life might be an overwhelming adjustment for most people, but Cassie Randolph says it has been a welcome change for her and boyfriend Colton Underwood.
We had the chance to catch up with Randolph, 24, at the newly opened ASTR the label pop-up store at The Grove in Los Angeles and asked what life has been like following the whirlwind reality show experience.
“A little crazy, I’m not going to lie,” Randolph admitted. “After the show, it finally started to slow down. We made sure we were home at the end of the summer and have been hanging with family and friends and spending quality time together, not just working time together.”
The former speech pathologist, who selected the ASTR Brynn mock neck sweater ($98) for the event (seen above), went on to explain, “It’s honestly been so fun and being able to travel and have all these fun experiences, especially with Colton, because these memories will last a lifetime.”
Randolph says that some “low-key” one-on-one time together has allowed the couple to settle into their romance and build a strong foundation. “Having trust in your relationship is so important, because if you’re not going to trust each other with certain things then there’s not really a point in the relationship,” she said. “But also being each other’s best friend and always being there for that person. I think that’s why me and Colton work so well. I feel like of anyone I’ve ever dated, we are truly each other’s best friend and always have one another’s back.”
Bachelor couple or not, those are words we can all follow.
The ASTR the Label pop-up store will be open through September.
