Canadian Tuxedo: Summer Edition

The phrase Canadian tuxedo became popular after the movie The Super Trooper when the Sergeant appears wearing a denim jacket with a pair of jeans, not sure it was matching denim or not. Regardless of the season, or as the year passes this full on denim look keeps doing comebacks.

As the weather gets warmer, long jeans dont feel attempting to sport. Shorts, yes and skirt are a major option during summer. Earlier I shared my surprise over how well-made KappAhl’s jeans, well it didn’t end there. This denim pencil skirt caught my eyes immediately, and I aslo mentioned it to Paul Laing, Head Designer for KappAhl during the last press presentation. Little did I know that both Paul and I really like denim, like is actually not the right word, love sound more accurate.

I think I’ve I’d ever were to asked to collaborate on a collection (just daydreaming a little…) I’d love to create a denim collection. Truth be told. I actually already know how I would like it to look. Hint to brands out there, haha!

What I love about this skirt is that the color, texture and amazing softness in the fabric – KappAhl’s denim should be synonymous with comfortable which isn’t the case in most scenarios when discussing denim. Seriously, hats off! Needless to say, a denim shirt and skirt is the perfect summer Canadian Tuxedo, or what do you think?

From The Heart

Although summer hasn’t really kicked in fully here in Stockholm, I’m enjoying every bits of sunshine we’re offered. I find it interesting, year after year how much the sun can do for our hearts. It also amazes me how we as a society go through different cycles depending on the season, so when summer comes the energies shift to something warmheartedly and delightful.

Ever since I decided to embrace my natural hair last week, I’ve been experiencing what a different look can do. Not only do for yourself but also how people interact with you, verbally or nonverbaly. Many have also been so surprised, not realising it was me from the beginning. Funny what a change or hair can do? But to give the hair the full credit wouldn’t be fair, because at the same time when the shift was occuring a longer one had started long ago. So besides from hearing one too many ”I didn’t recognise you!”, more people have taken the initiative to come up and interact with me and not just to complement something I’m wearing but more acknowledging my style. Besides from the positive feedback, one lady stopped after a long staircase in the subway to tell me it was wrong tho throw my cigarette on the floor. While the lady was explaining how she’d never thrown a cigarette on the ground although she’d been a smoker for many years I couldn’t help but to think that I respected her for being upfront. I thanked the lady for telling me and I said I’ll think about it the next time.sara-che-h&m-top-pleated-skirt-and-other-stories-red-clutch-celine-sunglasses-leopard-sneakers

The second thing that has dawned on me is what I am basing my choices on when getting dressed every morning. Previously, I have always been a person who communicates what she’s inspired by or what mood she’s in via clothes. I do not work based on that foundation any longer, instead my only aim is to get happy from what I am waring. It’s really simple if you think about it, but when you wear something and put a look together that makes you happy, you will radiate that happiness and other will see that it you. And lets face it, whats more beautiful than happy people? I could write a long post on so many interesting event that has occurred this past week, its almost a bit surreal and simultaneously very fun and. I’ve felt more happy to be honest and it’s a fascinating experience to be able to see how thing unfold differently and how people perceive and communicate with you differently.

Moral of the story? If you don’t get dressed to add some joy to yourself, please try it. I genuinely think everyone should give it a try and see in a week how many different experiences you will gain. All because of one thing, which is from the heart. Imagine if we moved from the heart in all directions, how different our lives would look? So I try to remind myself, to be grateful and see love in the directions I am headed and sometimes with a little assistance of my heart scarf.

The other day, a colleague and I took a break from the office to have some sushi on the roof teras. We walked over to our favorite sushi place in the area and ordered our food. We chatting about everything an nothing while we were waiting for the food to be prepared. As the girl behind the cash registers come up to us to hand over the food, she says ”I read your blog! And your Instagram, I love how you write about fashion and incorporate deeper topics”. It took me a couple of seconds to even take all the love I was surprisingly showered in. I thanked her for kind words and told her that her words just made my day. I thanked her, because even though she wasn’t fully aware – those word had a deep impact on me. My colleague and I was in high as we walked out of the sushi place. My colleague was amazed by what she just had witnessed, and I felt a confirmation arise as we discussed what a beautiful gesture that was.

Halfway through our way to the roof teras our conversations went from the thrill of this beautiful gesture, to why it doesn’t happen as often to why woman don’t focus on raise each other  and instead put each other down. We need to be each others cheer-team, yet is bulling something that happens in the most twisted scenarios. If men have the ability to stand behind each other just for the sake of brotherhood, why can’t sisterhood achieve it too? Just play with the thought of how that could change everything from micro to macro levels, I’m sure that the world look different and most importantly we would feel better.

As I’ve written earlier that I was bullied as a kid, this topic is something I feel very passionate about. So many kids have been wrongfully treated which have lead them to fight the aftermath demons years to follow, and some will never heal from the trauma it caused. If you have never been bullied, I can imagine that it might be challenging to understand  the importance of how deep bulling can hurt a innocent child. What hurts me the most is how some people continue bulling as they grow older.

It was not long ago I made a sad discovery that a person whom I though was my friend started showing a side hadn’t seen before. Believe me when I say, the realisation was painful. Although our friendship had it turns, this made me to have everything over a few times more. When I had finally made peace with it, it dawned on me that perhaps this is a opportunity to face my own demon once and for all. Maybe I was ready now, because as I played the scenario happen where this person says something mean, my approach will be different. This time, I wont have to defend myself. Instead, I asked why she said that. And when she couldn’t give a reason I asked her if she feel better when saying mean things. This story could become a novel, but I leave you with this.

A simple gesture, but its impact was massive. If there is one thing I know, nothing bad can come from being kind to each other. It’s not only an act of love and respect to other but also a act of love and respect to ourselves. Emma, if you read this… thank you. I hope you always share your positive thought of others to them, it made my day and made me think through how the smallest act of kindness can create a butterfly affect.
