Summer Solstice

You know what this means, right? THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER ARE OFFICIALLY HERE.
Look for me on my throne.
Contemplating the deeper things. Like what kind of table should go here?
And is it okay to mix Mexican and Moroccan decor?
And maybe I should've grabbed a couple more of these blankets? Or a larger one?

And most importantly, how to squish myself into that far corner to get the most of the late day sun.  

But for now I must go indulge in mid-afternoon job abandonment.

Your throne is heavenly, and it's totally cool in my book to mix Mexican and Moroccan–they both start with M, after all!

Your outdoor space is lovely. I especially love the gorgeous rugs!

Claire Kiefer said...

Carrie, this makes me want to do nothing more than jet down to Long Beach and sit on your deck with you over several margaritas. You look adorable in your summery dress. Hope I get to see you in the warm months!

Move on over my friend, because I want to park my expanding bum right next to you there, I can regale you with my woes of no shopping, what I intend to splurge on soon and how my sorry body aches and moans, and I might need you to give me a hand up, but at the very least, Im good for a laugh!

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh freak. If you and Claire hang out together, I'm sooo coming over and plopping my behind on your Moroccan/Mexican throne.

Love that first photo, the plants look great and love the cushions! Happy Summer!

Katie said...

It's ok if I show up at your door so we can toss back some margs on the Moroccan/Mexican deck, right? Worst day ever over here.

PS - I can bring the tequila.

Ummm....Best use of space ever! I love SUMMER! Your throne is pretty fancy, my friend! And Mexican/Moroccan is totally fine.

So funny--in the afternoons, my pups and I fight over the only seat on our back porch that has direct sunlight. Haha. It is the best.

Cool photos!
In South Africa it's the winter solstice so I enjoyed the day with heaters, blankets and hot chocolate with mini marshmallows

Daisy said...

I think you mixing that Mexican and Moroccan decor gives great pizzaz to your patio. well done!

You and your throne - that's how it should be! I'll bring my throne and we can get our guys to feed us snacks!

Your set-up looks great! If I lived near you I would definitely show up with a pitcher of margaritas... Maybe a low coffee table to go with the sitting-on-moroccan-poufs-theme? Or a cluster of smaller tables that could be used as additional seating when necessary? But something round to prevent bruised shins...especially useful after the aforementioned marg's are consumed :)

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

I found a perfect spot for my ass on that deck of yours!! ANd those sunglasses are awesome. :)

Amber said...

I need to get a throne of my own. Yours looks really awesome and seems like the perfect spot to spend some time under the sun

Nnenna said...

I love how colorful your outdoor decor are! And I really like that dress. Where is it from? Did I miss it? My skull bracelets are supposed to come today. I can't wait! Share yours when yours come. Probably today too, right?
