Are you still following celebrities for fashion and style inspirations? Oh no! If so, you’re already out of date! 😉 In fact, nowadays fashion bloggers are the new cool kids on the block and already are at the leading edge of the trends all over the world.
You know I love colors, and especially I mean bold colors. Just simply because they add so much fun to my look and lighten up my mood. But you also know I love a chic and elegant look, so that means I can’t help but be a big fan of classic BLACK AND WHITE. As you can see in the photo above, I am doing a style collaboration with Samantha from Besosfromamerica. Samantha is such an amazing person and blogger. I always love her clean and chic vibe.
It is very interesting that we both picked a button down shirt paired with a summery pair of shorts and cage shoes. We just decided to style our favorite black and white outfit, but didn’t say any more details. I guess that is why we like each other; we have kind of similar styles. 😉 Mine is bolder because I can’t live without color. The red is my tribute to this look. Samantha’s look is so effortlessly chic and easy going, I have to give her two thumbs up. Please head over to Besosfromamerica to see more of her modern and chic style.
Now let’s get back to our normal Friday theme. They got it right. Since we talked about black and white, let’s just go with the flow and start from a very chic and crisp white look. Age can change your body but will not change your taste. See how polished an all white outfit can be. http://www.stylishsalat.com/
I know everybody is talking about fall, but I want to hold onto summer as long as I can. 😉 How about this transitional boho outfit for a change?
Below is more of my new look for today and have a great weekend!:)

Since I started this blog at end of last year, I have been super busy. As you know I am a teacher so I have my summer off. But it seemed I was even more busy because there are always so many things I can do to improve my blog and try to get more traffic. Do you see a patten here? I am a workaholic and I am not happy with it! So I promised myself that at least for the month of August I would really have my summer break!
Well, it’s fair to say that I am getting better. But according to my husband I still have a long way to go. 😉 He does consider himself to be somewhat of an expert on chillaxing and I guess he is right; because every week I still have a few fulltime 8 hour days working on my blog. But at least we went on a couple long weekend/short vacations this month.
This last weekend we spent a wonderful day on a friend’s boat. We have been invited for many years but somehow just never made it. The night before our lake date I started thinking about what to wear on the boat. I have been on a few cruise ships but never been on a private yacht. My original plan was a striped tee with white shorts. But at the last second I changed my mind and settled on this outfit. Who can resist a flowy white top for a summer boat ride?
It happened to be a fantastic day to be out on the water. The sun was shining, the temperature was just right and the lake was calm. We had great company, tasty food and stayed well hydrated! You can’t be too careful with that and we’re all about staying healthy! 😉
Roxie is the name of our friend’s new dog. She is such a cutie and we quickly became best buds.
If you follow me on Instagram you already saw this cute photo below. If you aren’t following me, what are you waiting for? You already know I’m pretty awesome but then you’d be able to know me more as a person. 😉 Anyway, that fashionable dog bag is just Roxie’s life jacket. When we were shooting photos she ran out of the boat. I had to catch her before she wandered away.

After a few hours boat ride, we stopped at an island beverage stand to freshen up. 😉
After a short break we headed back out on the lake again to watch the sunset. It was the most peaceful and beautiful sunset I have ever seen.
It is pretty cool that we could just dock our boat at a waterfront restaurant and enjoy our dinner. And timing was everything. There just happened to be a Jamaican band playing Reggae music into the night. A short boat ride back to our home marina and then we thanked our Captain and First Mate friends, said goodnight to Roxie and drove home. What an AWESOME summer Saturday! Maybe I could get used to the relaxing life!
