5 Essentials for a Day by the Pool
As the mercury rises, the itch to cool off inside a shimmering turquoise pool is nearly impossible to ignore. Whether you’re headed to your friend’s backyard or the neighborhood community centre for your next plunge, you’ll need to round up some poolside must-haves.
As part of our never-ending quest to make you feel like your most confident, radiant, feminine self (with the perfect touch of glam), here are Skye’s 5 most-loved day-at-the-pool essentials .
Isn’t it time you upgraded from the paper-thin beach towel you used to bring to camp every summer? Nothing says everyday luxury like a Turkish towel, fringed to perfection and accented with a dainty pattern in a simple, sophisticated colour palette. Once you’re done drying off, this kind of towel can double as a big cozy scarf on chilly days, or a trendy throw for the living room.
The right piece of jewellery can take an outfit from “okay” to “oh yes” – and poolside getups are no exception. While chunky bracelets or multi-layered necklaces aren’t exactly ideal for wading in the water, a lightweight earring or subtle pendant necklace is the ideal accessory for the woman who loves to keep things stylish, but also splash around!
Gathering all of your pool essentials is only half the battle: you’ll need a beach bag to carry them to your destination! A day at the pool is the ideal time to flaunt your favorite summery tote, from woven to wicker and everything in between. Like any other purse, the right beach bag can easily achieve fashion accessory status, so jazz up your bathing suit with the perfect arm candy.
Between dips in the pool, you’ll probably want to throw on a lightweight over-layer for a little added sun protection (your skin will thank you later!). Make it count with a classy coverup, like a flirty cascading kimono, or a double-duty dress that you can wear to drinks or dinner once you’ve dried off for good. Because the best kind of coverup celebrates your personal style instead of hiding it away!
Laying by the water is hard work – well, for your skin, anyway. Sun, sand, and salt have an uncanny way of drying out your delicate dermis, so you’ll need a mega-moisturizing sidekick to counteract the elements. Reach for a nourishing, quick-absorbing coconut oil treatment to restore your skin to its glowiest, most hydrated state. Plus, who doesn’t love smelling like a piña colada? We certainly do!
