It should be mandatory to spend your summer lounging by the pool. There’s nothing better than the feeling of cool water hitting your toes and the sun shining down. When we lived in Washington, we had little to no access to pools, so ever since we’ve moved i’ve been spending nearly every day lounging poolside. Today, i’m sharing a few of my must-have pool essentials for summer.
It’s no secret that this has been the summer of pool party bashes. With the amount of insanely adorable inflatables (like this or this), i’ve been dying to make a master list of my must-haves for the perfect day at the pool.
What to Wear:
I’m so picky about my pool day attire! Just because your headed into the water, doesn’t mean you don’t want to look fashionable (#AmIRight). I was so excited when I found this beach tote from Sundown Style Co. (c/o) I swear, it’s by far my favorite bag because it fits everything and looks super stylish. I’ve all ready gotten tons of compliments on it from friends! Plus, how adorable are the rope handles? I paired it with a fun tassel coverup I snagged from Urban Outfitters and my classic Ray Ban Aviators. I’ve also been crushing on all the fun bathing suits this season, see some of my favorite picks below.
What to Eat:
I’m a firm believer that food should always be close. But, at the pool I like to keep things simple with a fruit spread. It’s easy to make, can be enjoyed by everyone and is beyond healthy. For this tray, I included mini bananas (because how CUTE are they?), oranges, kiwi and some pineapple to match my inflatable raft! I love eating fruit at the cool because it keeps me cool and doesn’t make me feel too bloated.
What to Bring:
I’ve been dying to get my hands on a fun towel this summer, but didn’t want to break the bank. I hit the jackpot when I found this towel from Bonita Beach Collection (c/o). Isn’t the pattern adorable? I fell in love with it immediately. Not to mention, the fabric is really sturdy and the tassels are adorable. I’ll definitely be using this all summer long at the pool, the beach and the park! I’m also a firm believer that you should never hit the pool without sunscreen, refreshments (hello, san pellegrino) and some fun inflatables. I’ve linked some of my favorite pool essentials below!
