Editor's picks beach accessories pool party toys

1 Natural tote with rope handles, $24.95, Bed Bath and Table

When you have all these rad accessories to lug down to the pool or beach, you’re gonna want one sturdy tote to contain it all. This is that tote.

2 Florence Broadhurst umbrella, $119, SunnyLife

When an umbrella is this bright and bubbly, how can you not want one? Complete with its own carry bag and covered in stunning Florence Broadhurst designs, this jolly brolly is one you’ll be proud to display.

3 Shiseido Gentle Sun Protection Lotion SPF30+, $56, Myer

I love this because it’s made specifically for those with sensitive skin (me!) and offers non-chemical sun protection.

4 Poolside Flowerpatch sunglasses, $286.09, Karen Walker Eyewear

We LURVE Karen Walker and we lurve her new “Poolside” sunglasses line, natch. Never have sunnies had so much character.

5 Japanese Waves Round Towel, $84.95, Beach Bella

How cute are these little round towels. Beach or poolside picnic anyone?

6 Frayed Edge Cowboy Hat, $79.95, Witchery

Everyone needs a hat this season (always be sun smart!) and the straw look is so hot right now.

7 Isola Shibori top $139.95, bottoms $84.95, Splish Splash Swimwear

We’ve pictured the grape set, but this super-cute bikini by Isola, a brand by the lovely Megan Gale, also comes in cool indigo.

8 SunnyLife beach radio, $49.95, Forever New

Plug in your iPhone and stream tunes poolside in with this retro-tastic tech toy.  $49.95

9 Watermelon inflatable, $79.95, Domayne

I carried a watermelon… to the pool and then I floated on it like a boss! Yeah OK, sorry, that was terrible. But this tropical inflatable just screams pun in the sun... I mean fun... fun in the sun.
