Yesterday was the first day of summer and it was quite the hectic day– so hectic that I decided I needed some very calm pool time after work. It definitely wasn’t planned, so I basically put on my sunscreen (which you have to do about 30 minutes to an hour before), grabbed what I considered my essentials, and headed out. Most of the time I’m over-packed and stuffing my bag with the most random things I most likely won’t need but for days like yesterday, I like to keep it at the bare minimum. For a quick hour-dip at the pool, these are the items I toted along with me:
1. A Tote and a Cover-Up
This tote was given to me by my friends for my birthday, and I have used it for EVERYTHING. This is perfect for the pool because if it gets a couple of drops of water, you can simply wipe it off. I also love this white dress as a cover up. Slip off before you jump into the pool, and slip on when you’re done drying off. And it’s cute!
The Texas heat is NO. JOKE. Sunglasses are a must for the beaming rays!
3. Poolside Treats
These OREO THINS, the thinner and crispier cousin of the classic treat, makes for a handy poolside snack! My favorite is the lemon variety, but they also have mint, chocolate creme, and even some in (handier) packs of 4 when you’re on-the-go!
I found these OREO THINS at Walmart! The one in my city had them both in the cookie aisle and in one of the stand-alone summer-themed pallets in the middle of the store.
I literally heard someone ask a United Pool management lifeguard yesterday “why do I need to bring water to the pool? I’m already going to be swimming in water!” Uhm, because you can’t drink THAT water. Just because you’re surrounded by it doesn’t mean you’re hydrated.
5. A Camera
Whether it’s to take Instagram-worthy photos or to have something to capture precious moments with, it’s always nice to have a camera handy. I love using an instant camera because it produces such summery-looking photos!
