Collarless tweed blazers always have a very elegant and lux feel. It’s the essence of Chanel, so I guess that’s what makes it so classic and timeless. It has the ability to immediately make you look like a lady. =)

Along with the chambray shirtdress, that I shared with you yesterday, I also picked up this awesome bold striped dress shirt from Banana Republic. Its dark cuffs pulled me in and it’s fitted structure is what sold me (oh and it’s iron free, triple whammy). I wear these style of shirts to the office but I also like to wear them “casually” when I don’t feel like being in full professional attire.

Believe it or not this is my first shirtdress! I can’t believe a shirtdress was never on my must-have list but I’m happy it made it into my summer wardrobe. It might easily turn into one of my favorite pieces. Aside from the fact that it’s super comfortable it’s also perfect for the very hot weather we’ve been having here in the valley.

One summertime activity that I’ve been itching to try was paddleboarding. So while we were in Southern California last weekend we committed and gave it a try.

To say the least it was a lot of fun! It was not as hard as I thought it was going to be. As much as I like to do yoga I’m incredibly unbalanced so I thought I was going to fall right off as soon as I stood up. But that was not the case. The boards are pretty wide so once you’re up you’re pretty steady.

Are you the beach bum that can lie in the sand for hours enjoying the rays of sunshine as you get the summertime bronzy glow? Are you the active gal, always ready for a game of beach volleyball, throwing the football or even surfing? Or are you neither? Like, the type that doesn’t like to get tanned because it happens so quickly (like moi), neither active nor bum but you do enjoy the beach enough to visit it once in a while.
