Weekly Whistle: Sail Away with Me

IMG_5308

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

For this week’s Weekly Whistle, I took a little inspiration from a song I heard on Pandora a bit ago…Sail Away by David Gray. It is a phenomenal song with a chill vibe–the VIP gives David Gray and his song two thumbs up! *two thumbs up*

Now, take a look at the artsy, fabulous photos from a recent shoot in my hometown of Louisville, Mississippi intertwined with the lyrics, and let me know what y’all think!

*Outfit details will be listed at the bottom of this post–be sure to check them out to discover what wonderful jewelry artisan made my necklace *wink*

Sail Away by David Gray

Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

IMG_5266

Crazy skies all wild above me now
Winter howling at my face
And everything I held so dear
Disappeared without a trace
Oh, all the times I’ve tasted love
Never knew quite what I had
Little Darling, if you hear me now
Never needed you so bad
Spinning round inside my head

IMG_5240Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now
IMG_5253I’ve been talking drunken gibberish
Falling in and out of bars
Trying to get some explanation here
For the way some people are
How did it ever come so far
IMG_5228Sail away with me, honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now
Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Sail away with me, honey, now, now, now
Sail away with me
What will be will be
I wanna hold you now

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

What are y’all up to tonight? The VIP is sitting at the hotel in Johnson City, Tennessee watching the new episode of Psych!

Tonight on the blog, I would like to reveal the last outfit of the 3 Ways to Wear: Cynthia Rowley Owl Sweater.  Outfit #3 is also this week’s Weekly Whistle! Yay!

To change up Outfit #2, I traded the patterned cords for a vintage skirt, tossed off the yellow scarf, and hopped into a pair of darling socks and Cynthia Rowley sneakers. Tah dah! A totally hipster look that is perfect for chilling at the coffee house or shopping at the mall with the besties!
