When it comes to swimming pool accessories, we say more is more. Even though our bags can’t zip because they’re overflowing with sunscreen, snacks, and sunnies , we’ll always find space for a fun pool float or game.
An inflatable pool is a great alternative to in-ground or stock tank pools—and way less expensive, too. They're also portable and about a hundred times more cheeky with summer-ready prints. For extra security, lay a yoga mat or two underneath the pool to prevent punctures from sharp edges or small rocks—our worst nightmare is a deflated, leaky pool.
Pool Floats & Loungers
Whether you're hanging solo, with friends, or with furry BFFs, you'll want to lounge about with a fun pool float. You can't go wrong with a classic donut like this, but if you're feeling extra, a yacht-shaped float is the way to go (it's also where you'll find us this season). We like to use a balloon air pump to help inflate things faster—aka get into the pool quicker.
Go hands-free and plop your rosé into a fun floatie or grab a larger one to fit all your snacks—just remember to pour it from the bottle into an insulated tumbler like this for safety and to keep your drink chilled for hours. The drink floaties will meander right alongside you, so you never have to get up for a drink or bite. Hear that? That's the sound of your dreams coming true.
