Olivia Blois Sharpe and Albie Manzo enjoy summer’s funnest accessory: pool floats

It’s summer, it’s hot, so of course New Jerseyans are having lots of fun in the pool. Garden State celebrities aren’t just splashing around, but doing so in high style with fun pool floats in shapes like watermelon, donuts, pineapple, dragons and flamingos. Everyone from Lea Michele to various cast members of Real Housewives of New Jersey (and their children, of course) are enjoying these colorful party staples.

The trend isn’t just a Jersey one, of course; major stars like Rihanna, Reese Witherspoon, Kourtney Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner have been enjoying them. Chrissy Teigen used one alongside husband John Legend over July 4th weekend in the Hamptons. Last summer, Taylor Swift beat the heat in a pool with her then-boyfriend Calvin Harris on a swan float. What’s not to love about these playful pool accessories that turn us all into gleeful kids for a little while? I dare you to try to stress while using one of these adorable floats; it’s impossible.

Want one of your own? Check out this cute list of food-themed pool floats.

Dakota Fanning, whose caption reading “All I need is a swan, a pool in jersey and my best friends” is one we at OMJ definitely agree with her on! She certainly enjoyed her pool float time in Colts Neck with her pal, model Alessandra Garcia Lorido, who also captured their playful antics on video.
