August in DC is a hot mess of high temps with nearly-as-high humidity. But even as we start dreaming of fall, there’s a few good reasons to be happy it’s still summer, and one of those is pineapple products. No more are pineapples restricted to tropical vacations and tiki bars—pineapples are on absolutely everything these days, from purses to shoes to pool floats, and we love every bit of it. Here’s some of our favorite pineapple-covered stuff that you really need in your life before this summer comes to a close.
