We knew Taylor Swift could throw an epic party (or two, or three), but now, it’s official that she’s also a pro at making summer dates just as memorable. The “Bad Blood” singer recently shared a pic on Instagram of her and BF Calvin Harris taking advantage of the early summer heatwave at a gorgeous outdoor infinity pool, where Taylor eschewed her typical date attire for a black two-piece swimsuit, classic wayfarer-style sunnies and one other totally unexpected accessory: a giant inflatable swan float.
Captioned “Swan goals,” the square showed the happy couple posing photo booth-style on the back of the float while their toes dragged in the water, making it very, very clear that this playful prop was the key to having a killer poolside or beach-bound bash, regardless if it’s a trip for two or a gang’s-all-here getaway. Grab the same one as Tay and her boo for just $55, or step it up with these five just-as-quirky summer party essentials:
2. Brit + Co Pearler Bead Coasters Kit ($19): People will come for your famous frozen margs. They’ll stay for these DIY emoji coasters.
3. Sunnylife Tallow Underwater Camera ($22): Just because you keep your smartphone as far away from the water as possi doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the day’s most snappable moments. Dive on in with this waterproof camera at your side and make underwater photo booths a thing.
4. Studio Mucci Dolphin Balloon Kit ($12): This little guy might be the cutest party crasher ever.
5. Kurt Adler Popsicle String Lights ($21): These adorable string lights will help keep the party going way after the sun goes down.
