Poolside Essentials For The Summer!

image here, edited by me

Whether you are going abroad on holiday or staying in the UK to soak up the sun this summer there are a number or essentials that you will need in your beach bag for lounging by the pool. Here I have some of my favourite fashion items that are a must for around the pool side.

Floppy hat


Hats are a big essential especially if you tend to burn a lot because they protect you face from the sun rays. The reason a floppy hat is good, is because it covers your shoulders and neck for added protection. I always have a large hat on holiday and they go great with a kaftan.

Flip flops

Packing safe and comfortable footwear is a must have for holiday especially if you are going to be by the pool and at the beach. You will want light footwear which will be comfortable to wear all day long and sandals that are caring for your feet. Flip flops are convenient, you can slip them on and walk to the pool and take them off instead of having to unbuckle them.

Cover up 


When I'm at the beach or pool I like to wear a light cover up instead of shorts and a t-shirt, much easier than having to get undressed at the beach and you can even dress it up if your are going to grab a drink.  You can find some nice kaftan cover ups which are great for throwing on around the pool. There are many coast dresses to choose from that would be a great cover up for by the pool.

Sunglasses 

Another pool side must have of mine is sunglasses. When it's nice out I don't go anywhere without them and the pool is no exception. I love a nice pair of oversized sunglasses. I usually tend to bring another pair in my bag incase I loose them or happen to sit on them - yes that has happend!

Of course there are other essentials for the pool such as an iPad or iPod for music and chilling in the sun, sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun's harsh rays, a good book or magazines and some snacks and drinks.
