Pump up your poolside style with essential summer accessories

From Culture Map Dallas

Let’s face it, you fancy yourself as the stylish mommy.  You always try to look your best, whether going to the grocery store, or the school for a meeting with the teacher.  Why should going to the local swimming pool, waterpark, or private pool be any different?  This post from Culture Map Dallas gives some great tips for finding that perfect swimming pool accessory to set you apart from the rest.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

We know moms like to make lists. So let’s see how you’re doing with the list of poolside essentials. Figure-flattering swimsuit? Check. Stylish cover-up? Check. Now, let’s move on to summertime accessories that are equal parts functional and stylish.

A good tote bag is high priority. And it must withstand dirt, crumbs, juice boxes — well, a beating. Something patent or ombre, perhaps?

As for sandals, comfort is key, because you know you will have to trek back to the pool to retrieve whatever toys the kids left behind. Sunglasses, in addition to making just about anyone look cool, are necessary to keep from squinting (no wrinkles!).

What about hats? No woman — mother or not — wants to do her hair when she’s going to spend the day at the pool. Whether you prefer a fedora, sun hat, cowboy or cloche, keeping your face shaded is priority No. 1. Why not do it fabulously?
