Design & Lifestyle Insights of a Yankee Designer Living in the South

I'm on a float!

So it's (almost) officially summer! And if you live in the south you know what that means...finding the closest pool and hanging there all summer! 

If you've been on Pinterest lately I'm sure you've seen a buzz about how cool pool floats are the new thing. Well let me tell you, I was on the original cool pool float train. I had one of the "free willy" whale floats. It was obnoxiously large, but I loved him. My mom hated it because it took up our whole pool and she couldn't relax on it. Cue this photo I found online. 

After Willy met his maker (aka my father's lawnmower) I was never able to replace him. In the past few years however, I've seen this 6 foot swan show up all over blogs and Pinterest.

I obviously want one, not only because every one else has one (and I'm cool too ya know!) but You can actually fit more than one person semi comfortably on it. The tragedy I face now is that I don't live some place that has a pool and I can't imagine storing this big beauty in my studio and then stuffing her into my SUV to drive across town to my cousin's community pool. Although I'm sure her small kids would die over this! Now, we have even more adorable pool float options besides Willy and "The Swan". Below is a great collection of floats. Link here.

Who doesn't want a giant citrus pool float? It just screams relaxation.

After you find your perfect pool float you need your fav pool side beverage.

Cue these ADORABLE drink floats!!!! All are available at Ban.do.

Hopefully we can all find a pool float that fits our sense of style and fits in our pool! If you need me I'll be on a float!
