On My Mind || Porch Decor, Soccer and other Summery Things

We are in total summer mode, which means long days at the pool, bike rides, applying and reapplying sunscreen, plentiful popsicles on hand, and crazy, frizzy hair and that blog posting will be spotty until school gets back in session.  I'm thinking two or three times per week, or maybe more if inspiration strikes. Let's see how that works out.  Lately, I have been obsessed about our porch.  It needs major work as I sold all our old outdoor furniture because it was too big for our current space.  I'm thinking I need an outdoor rug (here are some fabulous options). Have you ever used an outdoor rug?  Are they difficult to upkeep? Also, I'm totally obsessed with these Mara Hoffman x Anthropologiehttp://rstyle.me/n/jjbtwmnhw outdoor cushions.
Who is a big soccer fan?  I used to play in high school and just love watching the World Cup. It's such a graceful sport in my opinion.  When the passing between teammates works well it is a beautiful thing to behold.  Anyone going to Brazil?  And I just had to share these Loeffler Randall espadrilles on super sale fro $79!!  What?! Get them fast here.  Summer isn't summer without some fun accessories like these bracelets.  And really, I think I need flamingo sunglasses like this very chic pineapple while I lay by the pool.  Or at least this fun pineapple bikini.
