Lookbook: Peek-A-Boo Dots


I came across this 30 Day Music Challenge over on Bailey's blog I Know All The Words. That, coupled with The Grammys the other day, has encouraged me to incorporate more music on the Muse. Seriously, I love music. I sing all the time (not just in the shower), and I've been told I have a pretty good voice.

So why not open the door and let you guys in to my music world. I'll try to stay with this 30 day challenge as best I can with links to the songs instead of embedded videos...maybe. Since I blog every other day, I'll do two challenges at a time. Feel free to take this up as well.♥ Day One ~ Your Favorite Song: Breathe Me by Sia ~ This is such a difficult one to start with because I've had a ton of favorite songs over the years from One in a Million to Joyful Girl. I picked this song because I can sing it and because it makes me want to do things. I don't know what things; it just inspires me and reminds me of that line from The Perks of Being a Wallflower: "and in that moment, I swear we were infinite."Prabal Gurung for Target yellow sweater | Nastygal spotted blouse | F21 boyfriend jeans | Parisa G by Guess wedges | Morris Moskowitz vintage clutch | Nail polish: Sally Hansen slick slate | InPink & Forever 21 jewelry |♥ Day Two ~ Your Least Favorite Song: Trapped in the Closet by R. Kelly ~ This song has no redeeming qualities and has a godforsaken 33 chapters. What kind of foolish song about some idiot in a closet deserves that many chapters. If you like this song (or R. Kelly for that matter), then we can't be friends anymore...j/k...maybe.

Speaking of music, I'm off to a Pink concert tonight!
What do you think of this look?
