The Sea

"I am lost out to sea, while you're close to shore. Has it been months, has it been years, or more?"

Hello dear friends! If you want some fashion, you're in the right place. Today, I also thought I'd do a little "giveaway", if you will. A little something that I'd like to share with all of you. What is this crazy person talking about, you ask? Ahh... in due time. But if you cannot resist, scroll down to the bottom of this post and click on the links. 

With this outfit, I was feeling a little inspired to step out of the box and try and push my limits of what I'd wear normally. 4 months ago, I probably would not have put these pieces together.  I recently joined (you can check it out 
here) and by doing so, I realized it's a great way to see how fashion is never a "cookie-cutter" thing. There are some outfits that I honestly never would have dreamed of creating myself, but it's very inspiring to see what people can come up with.  It really makes fashion seem like more of an art than a machine.

dress: sears (similar). jean jacket: the gap (similar). clutch: forever 21. belt: old, burton snowboards. scarf: vintage (from my grandmother). 

I love this dress... I wore it for my birthday party and it's still just as comfortable as ever. 

Excuse the grainy-ness of the picture, and the fact that it kind of looks like I'm floating.

The scarf that I'm wearing used to be my grandmother's. My farmor (pronounced fah-more, it's grandmother in swedish) passed away a few summers ago, and she left her beautiful scarves to my sister and I. It's great to wear something that used to be hers because she was such a stylish and inspiring woman, and she helped inspire one of my tattoos (you can read all about it here).  She will always be in my thoughts, and I'm lucky I can bring a part of her into my outfits as-well!

Now for the MUSIC. You might be questioning the title of this post, "The Sea". Well I'm here to give you a PRESENT. It's a FREE GIVEAWAY. This is the best type of giveaway, because there is no postage, no mail, nothing like that. I'm giving the gift of beautiful music (I know, I'm a huge cheese-ball).

The past few days I've been washed over (pardon my pun) by a song that is always in my head, called The Sea. It was written by a couple of friends of mine, who are in a band called Kawaja Bear. Taryn Kawaja, who is on vocals and keys, has a beautifully haunting voice that can wake you up or put you to sleep (in the best type of way). Dave Connors has an impressive resume of musical endeavors and is quite skillful not only with instruments (guitar, drums, and synthesizer to name a few), but also with the production aspect of their music. Both are from Corner Brook, Newfoundland (same as me) but are living in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

To have a listen to their song The Sea, click here.

If you like what you hear, the songs are available for purchase at the very low price of... name your price.  Isn't that cool of them? And since they're so cool, you should buy each song for $100. Just saying.  ; )
