Moodboard Monday: Time for a Pool Party!

Time for a Pool party!!!

Let’s get swimming!!!

So, it’s hard not to get excited once we open our pool.  Last Thursday, we officially opened our pool for the Summer Season, and it is the single most exciting thing we do all year.  Re-reading that sentence sounds a little…pathetic, HOWEVER, when you’ve endured a winter like ours, you cannot help but be psyched.  In fact, everyone brags about their pool opening on Facebook.  It’s sort of like we’re facebook official with summer now.

After our horrid winter, we’ve reevaluated all of our outdoor furniture and realized the time is now for us to replace a few good pieces.  After looking over our outdoor furniture, its time to change up the look.  So for our Moodboard Monday, here’s the vibe we are feeling:

Thank you for the Slim Aarons inspiration Patricia Altschul (the Grande Dame of Southern Charm) and the reminder of what a cool vibe he caught!  Also this too:


And yes, we do watch all Bravo shows…Granted, our poolside vibe has a little more of a boho touch…See how to get the look below. Just a note, we’ve included some affiliate links below.  We may get a small commish on items you buy, at no extra charge to you!

 1.  Umbrellas:

We are totally inspired by the black and white, pagoda style trend these days.  TOTALLY digging this, this, this, and THIS!  In fact, we love this one here:

5.  Outdoor Dishware:

Do not forget to invite your friends and family over to enjoy your new poolside digs!  I mean, we can’t help ourselves, we LOVE sharing our pool and outdoors with everyone.  Now, time to race to Target and scoop these all up!  Or have them delivered to your house.
