Are you guys ready for a MEGA LIST of Favorites!? Seriously, we have rounded up some awesome items to keep by the pool this summer and I’m excited to see what you think. We’ve got floats, sunnies, sunscreen…honestly I have so much I may have to do a part 2 tomorrow! Several of the pictures below are in a slider gallery, so make sure to click through if you see little arrows when you hover your mouse over a picture.
Are these melamine plates from Pier 1 not just the cutest you have ever seen? We swim just about every day of the summer and the kids often eat outside. These plates are just the ticket for simple lunches or snacks. The fruit plates are bright and colorful. I know the boys will love the popsicle ones. The tropical glam plates will be fun for adults too. And my favorite ones are the jungle plates because the animals are so cute!! (Of course I threw in a palm leaf for good measure.) The best part…all of these plates are on sale right now!!
Noble Excellence Towels
For several years now, at the beginning of summer I head to Dillard’s and purchase a few of their Noble Excellence Cabana Stripe towels. Y’all these are the BEST towels because they are oversized, thick, soft and very durable. Plus I love anything with a cabana stripe for around the pool! Well this year I noticed that Noble Excellence also makes these round towels that look like slices of fruit: Kiwi, Watermelon, and Lemon. Thinking this year the round fruit towels will be added to the mix.
When I came across this little watermelon drink holder set, I thought what a great idea to have something like this by the pool! You can fill it up each day with cold water, ice, cut up fruit, and have it outside to remind everyone to drink plenty of water.
Every single year when summer comes around, I go on and on about how much I love Coola Sunscreen. Honestly, it is made with really good ingredients and comes in a variety of fragrances and SPFs. My absolute favorite is the Fresh Mango Scent. It is SPF 50 and is their “sport” version which makes it waterproof and sweat-proof.
Fun pool floats are not a new thing this year, but I do want to show you a few of my favorites. We had this pineapple last year and I floated on it all the time. The cactus float is darling…and check out the cactus drink float which I saw can also be purchased at Willow House right here in McKinney! And the cherry drink float is a personal favorite as well. Don’t forget an electric air pump!
I like to have a few extra pairs of sunglasses in a basket out by the pool in case someone comes over and has forgotten theirs. Nothing worse then spending the day in the sun without sunnies. Target always has really cute sunglasses at a great price. Perfect for stocking up! MINT FRAMES | PURPLE LENSE | PINK AND GOLD | PINK AVIATOR | CLEAR PINK FRAMES
