     While listening to usual Billie Holiday Pandora playlist while blogging, I started singing along to one of her classics hits “Blue Moon” and knew I had to dedicate this look to the blues legend. Also nicknamed Lady Day, Billie Holiday’s deep husky sound fills my soul. She always makes me feel like a classy blues lady, which is exactly how I felt wearing this American Apparel turtle neck and 70’s floral print slip. Topping off my look with a basket weaved clutch and Lucite heels, this was my version of a modern 70’s stay home wife. Had a nice evening strolling around one of my favorite hangout areas in Old Town Orange. Also hitting up one of my favorite health foods restaurants Rutabegorz, I couldn’t resist treating myself to a cup of hot green tea and a slice of rich warm carrot cake:) That sounds like a relaxing evening if you ask me! Now as the Lady of Blues once sang… “Blue moon, you saw me standing alone, without a dream in my heart, without a love on my own.”
