Let me start by giving shout outs to E. of academichic and Fer of Moda Fora de Moda for their World Cup inspired outfits yesterday. Good to know I'm not alone in the football obsession.
Denim dress: Ann Taylor (remixed to death)
White woven belt: gift from my mom

Red seahorse flip flops: Gap (remixed)
Silver hoops: gift from my mom (remixed)
Today's outfit is both in support of Paraguay, the current Group F leader, and in celebration of the US team's AMAZING win yesterday. That was one of those moments that reminds me why I love football: because beauty like that happens in injury time and changes everything. I will confess that I may have teared up. Especially when Univisión showed a commercial showing all these Latinos celebrating their home team and then saying that the US team is everyone's team. Tears. I'm a baby like that.
Today's outfit had to be simple, red, white, and blue; and cool because it's about 95 degrees Fahrenheit and we don't have AC. My easy denim dress was a natural choice. I kept everything else simple: white belt, ubiquitous beaded bracelets, and red flip flops. And Kiku. Because she has to be wherever I am.
I have to say I love this look. This dress might just be the best purchase I've made in a while, and I love the easy combination of pieces. It's just right for a super steamy day.
On a different note...
This is how I watch simultaneous games, y'all: Univision.com on the computer and Univisión on tv; I don't understand football in English, isn't that weird?
I'm going to go ahead and say it: I think this Cup is going to the Americas, South America to be specific. I'm pretty pumped to see Latin America so well represented and that the US has held its own (and has a pretty easy set of matches ahead).
