FTF: Summer Time Fab

ftf-collageThis month's Full Time Fabulous post is all about the summer. I would do a beach theme but I sadly no longer live by the beach. So instead, this post is centered around what I'd wear when going to the pool, which is definitely a summertime event, especially here in 110 degree Arizona.

This cut out swimsuit is exactly my kind of beach/poolwear. I love cut outs and monokinis. A nice, big floppy hat and some sunnies are perfect accessories for keeping the rays at bay. And, of course, I'm usually in wedges or sandals when it comes to beachwear, but I just had to include these Toms shoes with a beach splatter theme.

polyvore-beachThe pups and I went outside and dipped our toes (and paws) in the pool before heading over to this little water fountain by the grass area. The fountain is pretty cool, but I think the dogs think the water is for drinking and not splashing. But that could be due to how hot it was outside.
