Hit The Pool In Style: 16 Poolside Essentials For This Summer
Memorial day weekend is right around the corner which has always been our personal summer season kickoff here in Arizona.
A pool party is never complete without fun pool floats. Ever since the swan became the "it" pool accessory and the watermelon keg was invented, everyone's been filling their backyard with all sorts of crazy floats and gadgets that make for a great summer Instagram post.
Keep your backyard photo-op ready at all times this season with these 16 stylish pool essentials...

Corkcicle Arctican Can & Bottle Coozie
Ditch your foam koozie for a Corckcicle beverage holder — a drink casing that has a removable and freezable cooling core that keeps your beverage chill all day long. Simply leave it in the freezer until the gel solidifies, slip your drink into the koozie, and relax with a cold cup in your hand.
In case you missed it last summer, Costco sells an adult version of the freezer pops you probably loved as a kid—except its version is full of vodka. These alcoholic Otter Pops, called Skinny Freezers, come in four flavors and are made with "eight-times-distilled, charcoal filtered vodka."
Plus, they're only 100 calories per treat! So if you don't feel like putting the time and effort into a frosé, these might be the next best thing.
