In our summer dreams, this is where you'll find us.
As temps skyrocket in the city, the thought of lounging poolside is tantalizingly tempting. Perhaps you're dreaming of a gleeful dip in your new suit or simply oscillating on a float around the glassy surface, crisp drink in the cupholder, new book in hand. As we sit in our toasty apartments and fantasize about this poolside glamour, our minds naturally wander to the setting. Maybe you're into the Palm Springs by way of Slim Aarons vibe, or you're more of an Italian countryside girl—or, like us, you'll take anything you can get. Regardless, we're sure you'll enjoy the below imagery for inspiration. And once you've drooled over the photos, indulge in a shopping spree with a few of our favorite poolside essentials.
