Summer Essentials: Pool Bag Edition

Summer Essentials: Pool Bag

Summer is in full-force don't ya think? Lately, most days temps are in the upper 80s, with a heat index close to the 100s. I know plenty of other places whose temps are in the 100s, but this summer has already been a hot one for us here in DC. 

Since the weather started to heat up, I have been dreaming of laying poolside, until last week I spent Friday with my friend Bri of Rack It Up on her apartments rooftop pool. It was a gorgeous day & I ended up getting a little redder then I had hoped for (tisk tisk!).

I grew up in Yorktown, VA & as a child we always had memberships to the local neighborhood pool. Plus, we didn't live too far from a number of beaches, so summer was always spent near the water. 

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is pack my pool/beach bag. I pack wayyyy too much, but in my mind you can never be too prepared for a day in the summer sun. Here is a round up of my poolside essentials:
