Wait until you see what I’m shopping for in this week’s Friday Favorites!

This week has been all about the pool because it’s finally open!!! Yay!

I’ve always always ALWAYS wanted a pool and now, we finally have one.

As we prepare for the summer season, I picked up a few items for the pool, beach, or lake that I think you’ll love.

While I was shopping for our pool, many of these items you’ll love for your own patio, deck, pool, beach, or lake house too.

And I can’t wait to show you what I picked up!

What I Found in This Week’s Friday Favorites!

I found lots of great stuff for summer!

From umbrellas to bathing suit coverups and lots of cool things in between, this post is sure to have you ready for the summer swim season.

Safavieh Outdoor Living Venice Crank Umbrella

While I purchased two of these gorgeous crank umbrellas for our pool, they can easily be used on a deck or patio as well.

I love the scalloped details on them and think they will look great with my patio loungers I bought a few weeks ago.

Eliana Outdoor Nesting Tables by Christopher Knight

I also LOVE these outdoor nesting tables. Aren’t they so pretty?

While they could be used out by the pool, I’m thinking about snagging these for the front porch.

I love the details on it! While it comes in a few colors, the green crackle finish is my favorite.

Women’s Mesh Sheer Beach Cover Up

I LOVE this beach cover up.

It’s perfect, looks super beachy casual, and has the cutest pom pom details.

I’ll be kicking around in this one around our pool but it looks warm enough to wear on those windy beach days.

Another Swim Cover Up

I’m also loving this short sleeve version that looks very lightweight.

It comes in a variety of colors and looks long enough so it covers everything.

I don’t know about you but it drives me nuts when swim coverups run short.

Another Beach Swim Coverup

Can you tell I love a good beach coverup?

I love the sleeves on this one and it also comes in a large variety of colors.

How cute is this one?

Floppy Beach Hat

I am a HUGE fan of beach hats, are you?

In the heat of summer, I love wearing a hat to keep the sun off my face.

Plus it just feels cooler when its like 90 degrees hot and humid out.

For me, the bigger, floppier brim the better. And isn’t this one so cute?

It’s also foldable and packable which is super important if you want to travel with it in a suitcase or bag.

Straw Panama Hat

If you like the look of a fedora more, I have one just like this and wear it almost all summer long.

You can buy it in a variety of colors but I love the simple black ribbon version.

Wide Brim Sun Hat

But sometimes, I’d rather go without the straw look and wear one of these SPF versions.

I like to wear these when I’m out hiking or working in the garden the most.

Scout Beach Bag

Have you ever owned a Scout beach bag?

They are huge, hold a lot, and are perfect for a day at the beach or pool.

Several of my friends have them and swear by them.

I’m snagging one to use for the boat. We need a good size bag to pack all the towels and sunscreen in.

Large Straw Beach Tote

But I’m also loving this one too for those days where you are only packing for yourself and want to pack a few items.

It’s so pretty, right?

I’d use this as a purse too during summer.

Waterproof Birkenstock Sandals

I LOVE my Birkenstocks. And I particularly love these waterproof ones because I wear them when I’m gardening too.

They are so comfortable and clean right up.

The black option is my go-to but it comes in a variety of colors.

Birkenstock Gizeh Braid Sandal

If I needed to update my Birkenstocks, I would go with this braided one.

It’s so cute, right? These are perfect to wear with my boho summer dresses too.

THIS is the pair that I have now and they last for years, so I’m not really in the market to upgrade just yet but if I were, I’d totally get these.

Don’t Forget the Sunscreen

Whether you go with a spray or lotion, sunscreen is important, so don’t skimp on it this summer!

We go through lotion here like it’s water so I’m stocking up on both.

CLICK HERE for the spray.

And CLICK HERE and HERE for the lotion.
