We are a week out from Memorial Day and ‘hot vax girl summer’ is fast approaching. After a year of being at home, a season of pool parties, beach dates, backyard BBQs and rooftop parties is just around the corner. Can you tell we’re excited? Below, we put together our top 11 need-them-now summer essentials to help you make the most of Summer ’21.
1 - 4: Bikinis, Beach Bags & Accessories
Aussie swim label Vincija is exactly where sustainable meets sexy. If you’ve been taking advantage of all the free at-home workouts (and even if you haven’t), why not show off that quarantine bod in one of their mega-cute bikinis? We’d happily pair this red floral number with our gold heart shape float, even with our banana-bread-only diet. Flaunt what you’ve got, ladies.
For the total beach party look, we love this beach basket by Kayu (you, me, oui!) and these oversized sunglasses by Le Specs.
5 - 7: Extra Strength Pool Floats, Beach Gear & Kombucha!
When you invest in your summer set up you want to know it’s going to go the distance. At LOTELI we’re all about making extra strength pool floats that last from Memorial Day to Labor Day – and beyond. YETI is another company we love for long-lasting summer gear. The Hopper Flip Soft Cooler keeps food and drinks cold while you’re out and about. The ‘Aquifa Blue’ color would look amazing paired with our Light Pink Heart shape pool float. Throw in a few of these trendy Agua Bucha, a vitamin-infused kombucha sparkling water, for a beach set up that’s fun and photogenic.
8 - 11: Summer Party Must-Haves – Pool Floats for Adults & More
If, like us, you haven’t left the house much in the past year you might have forgotten what it’s like to have a flat phone! A portable charger like the Mophie Powerstation has extra ports to keep the whole crew happy while you’re at the beach. Now that we’re able to hug our friends again, a polaroid camera like the Fujifilm Instax Mini is perfect for capturing the moment and taking it home. Speaking of retro vibes, if you ever made a mixtape for a crush then the LOTELI Classic Cassette Tape is going to make your summer. A LÔTELI original, the Classic Cassette is a large pool float in clear light grey. It even has a Side A and Side B so you can flip it over when one side gets too hot. These days, the best pool float brands know the little details matter. That’s why all LOTELI floats come with double valves, extra strength pool float seams and fade-resistant colors. Last but not least, don’t forget the sunscreen!
We hope this pre-Memorial Day round up encourages you to breathe new life into your summer set up! Whatever you have on your radar, get out there and have an amazing Summer 2021 (you’ve earned it!).
