I'm sure people reading this post will automatically think 'oh for fuck's sake, here she goes again with the pool float thing' but I thought it would be fun to show you guys all the pool inflatables I've bought this summer. And it's a whole girl gang over here! One of the most important things I try to achieve as a fashion blogger is to make shoots as visual and out of the ordinary as possible. If I've made one person go 'wow' with a shoot or an idea, then my job is done. That's my aim. This past year I've tried to think out of the box as much as possible and found pool floats have made pretty gorgeous backdrops and props for me during many a summertime shoot. Although I haven't quite got that backyard pool yet, I'm dreaming hard of a vacay to Miami, because what better excuse than now to throw a poolside party? The lovely Elisha said she could see me with a house just made up of all my pool floats and I have to say I'm 100% with that idea. I've rounded up the coolest pool floats from this summer, here's to pool paradise!
Always keen to recreate the decor to a tiki-hut or a caribbean rum shack, this party hard palm tree hit the jackpot for me. I found it over at River Island where it's now no longer available, but you can find a similar version here. Also, loving how it looks against a pop of yellow. High five palm pretty!
Graham prefers this colourful lolly the most and I can definitely see the attraction. Also my favourite as it hardly attracted any unwanted attention from passers by, which equals instant gold points! This is by far the biggest out of the floats, it seems to stretch on forever, so would be perfect for a poolside vamoose. Warning: may give you serious cravings, actually looks too much like a real lolly for its own good.
