Poolside Necessities

What a better way to kick off the start of summer here in Southern California than a heatwave of triple digits? This year, I'm going to try to not just hunker down inside with the A/C blasting, but actually embrace the heat and take advantage of the pool. The secret to a good pool day, other than a good bathing suit and the sun, is being prepared. I just bought the trifecta of poolside lounging: a lounge chair, an umbrella, and my secret weapon, a mister. I'm not sure how I'd gone so long without one. It is a game changer. 

In addition to your basic lounging needs, here is what else you need for a day of fun in the sun: 
A cute tote bag to carry all the essentials, a pair of shades to protect those peepers, a fun towel for drying off after taking a dip or two, sunscreen and a lip balm with sunscreen to spare you weeks of misery dealing with nasty burns, a stainless steel water bottle to keep all your refreshments nice and chilled, a good book to help you stare at something other than your phone, and a portable charger to keep said phone charged for, ya know... emergencies ;)

So that is what will be in my poolside "kit" this summer. Is there anything I should add? What are the things you can't be without this summer? Let me know! 

Happy Lounging!

Dress: Adrienne Vittadini via Marshalls Sandals: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohls

This outfit is super basic, but it's also v comfortable; and who says you can't have both and still be cute? I literally saw this dress at Marshall's last year as I was walking up to the checkout, instantly grabbed it, knowing I had to have it and bought it without even trying it on. Thankfully, it worked out because it fits perfectly and is as comfortable as it looked on the hanger. They also say that wearing nude shoes make your legs look longer. I feel like I can't really say that's the case here; but I will embrace my shortness and be on my stubby way.

Romper and Feathers

When you've been in your bathing suit all day waiting for it to not be unbearably hot outside, you finally just have to throw on a hand-me-down romper from your sister at 6:30 and deal with it.
