Lookbook: Lady Sings the Blues

Did I ever tell you blue is my favorite color?Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm a bit of a sports fan. When I was a babe, I took gymnastics (leotard, and all) and even learned how to do back flips. I stopped because I thought it would stunt my growth. Little did I know, my growth was already stunted due to genetics. Then I got into volleyball and I was pretty good at it too. But that's not really a sport you can keep up by yourself because you kind of have to play with someone else. And one of the worst things in the world is trying to play volleyball with someone who can't play. It's terrible.Here's something else that might tickle your fancy. I'm really into music. The only reason you don't know that is because I'm not a fan of playing music on blogs. But the other night, the hubs and I had a major (major) '90s music jam sesh that brought me back to my teen years. It was the most fun I've had in a while. Who wants to go to a '90s music club night with me?| H&M blazer | F21 cotton artsy sweater | F21 woven joggers | Charlotte Russe zipper booties |By the way, this is what I wore for a Cajun lunch (I'm talking gumbo and beignets) and to look at some open houses. Can I just say...I don't know how anyone can afford to live in the Bay Area, but that's a subject for another time.

~~~ A list of some '90s songs that I love ~~~
Sinead O'Connor ~ Nothing Compares 2 U
Destiny's Child ~ Say My Name
Soundgarden ~ Black Hole Sun
Third Eye Blind ~ Semi-Charmed Life
Salt-N-Pepa ~ Shoop
Matchbox Twenty ~ Push
Arrested Development ~ Tennessee
Marcy Playground ~ Sex and Candy
Montell Jordan ~ This Is How We Do It
Missy Elliot ~ The Rain

Sidenote: I told the hubs to play "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan. He saw the video and got confused. Then he Googled "Montell Williams" and said: "Wait, I thought Montell Williams sang this." I couldn't stop laughing. And then he dug the hole deeper and said: "Oh no...I just thought this guy was Arsenio Hall."

What do you think of this look?
