Five Favorite Pins: Pool Party

We've recently formed a summer hypothesis that boils down to this: the hotter and hotter it gets, the less and less effort we want to exert. Goodness knows we love a good beach day, but that requires effort what with the travel, the sand, the snacks and drinks. When it comes to the most weekend fun for the least effort? Nothing beats the no-effort bliss of a backyard pool. Lately a little pool envy has been creeping up on us, so we're throwing a pool party for ourselves, Pinterest-style.

Thinking about simply slipping on a bathing suit and walking outside to the calm, cool blue water is like taking a 5 minute vacation in our mind. Poolside lounging is the epitome of relaxation, and the classic pool party is a trademark of summertime. So if you don't have a pool to slip into this weekend, you can still live vicariously through our pins below.

And if you do have a pool? Why, hello, new best friend! (We make a mean cocktail, you know.)
