Going to the Pool? I Have Your Back.

I forgot how much I dread living in the Sahara Desert – also known as Texas.  One thing I did NOT leave in Dubai: Heat!

Summer burns.  Which means we’re either inside, or in water.  Doing anything else is dreadful.  If you’re living somewhere with scalding temperatures, you feel me.

There’s a couple essentials I keep in my pool purse that are MUSTS for days in the water.

Feeling comfortable & confident in your swimsuit every single weekend is not always the easiest – having these items packed helps feel prepared, comfortable & confident.

What's In My Purse: Pool Day

1. Cold Shoulder Beach Dress

White, light & easy.  Having a lose fitting cover for your swimsuit is perrrfect. When necessary – roll it up and throw it in your purse so it doesn’t get lost at a busy pool.

2. Orikami Sushi Sack

Isn’t this cool?  You can roll it up super small when you’re not using it.  I love bucket sacks for the pool because they can easily be thrown or hidden anywhere.  Keep in mind, don’t spend a lot of money on a purse for the pool – it’s wet, dirty, possibly sandy & not the best place for you covetted accessories.

3. Hattie Hexagon Sunglasses

BIG SUNGLASSES ARE A MUST.  Always.  They cover so much of your face & there’s only positives to that.  Having constant shade on your face allows you to be more tolerant to the sun all day.

Also, don’t spend a lot of money on the sunglasses you wear to a pool day.  I’m the only person I know that hasn’t lost expensive sunglasses and it’s because I take cheap ones to places they’re likely to get lost or damaged – the pool.

4. Makeup Remover Wipes

Nothing in the world feels better than finishing your time at the pool with a refreshing face wash.

5. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

Music makes people feel good. And no one remembers to bring a speaker –> Be the hero.

6. Tinted Mason Jar

I bought this for Wafiq and am soooooo jealous!! We wanted a plastic cup for pool days because glass isn’t allowed – this cup is the coolest.  (Red solo cups are very college, we’re past that right?_

Fill up a large plastic cup with a drink of choice.  For pool parties, bring alcohol, you’ll feel better in your bikini with a little buzz.  🙂

7. Comb & Hair Clips

To organize the strands after a dip.

8. Lip Balm + SPF

If I don’t have chapstick, I’ll drive to the nearest store & get some before I go out to the pool. That dramatic.

9. SPORT Sunscreen

I’ve tried every sunscreen I can imagine.  Although this sport sunscreen isn’t the most organically friendly option, it’s the only thing I’ve found that protects my skin.

I spray it on and it covers evenly & lasts all day – in and out of the water.  No missed spots. IF you have fair skin like me, you know this is a treasure to find.  No more sunburn!

10. Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer

For that one zit that sticks out like a shinning dragon

 

 

Ok, what did I miss?? Any pool day essentials you can’t go without?!
