Lulu Letty: Along Came a Train

Along Came a Train

Cole and I wanted to take pictures at some train tracks nearby. When we first started shooting, along came a train. You can see by one of the pictures that the conductor scared the bejesus out of me when he blared the horn!

Absolutely amazing.
The shoes are really pretty =)

Well, you know how much I love tartan, the dress looks gorgeous on you! I've been dreaming of a tartan dress, and still dreaming!

The boots are perfect with the outfit and the train came at the right moment too:)

Tights Lover  – (October 26, 2009 at 11:34 AM)  

I love these pics. You look amazing. The suprise/horn blare picture is priceless. I think I would've look horrible in such a pic, but you still manage to look good/remain posed!

katrina  – (October 26, 2009 at 11:55 AM)  

These photos are wonderful. I couldn't help but chuckle seeing your second photo. :)

WendyB  – (October 26, 2009 at 12:13 PM)  

LOL! The startled photo is adorable. And it was very nice of the train to come along and be so picturesque!

That should be done with safety.
And Checks - one of the favourite.
An Idea:
Gulmohar trees could be another location or a place where you can find dry leaves. That will be good for photography. What say Cole?

Couture Carrie  – (October 26, 2009 at 12:29 PM)  

Gorgeous, darling!
Love your dress!


sarah  – (October 26, 2009 at 12:44 PM)  

I adore your velvet hairbow & am looking for a pair of boots simular to yours, they're fab!

I love train, there are a train station in my city too, as like as this!

Aoife  – (October 26, 2009 at 1:51 PM)  

It's so great how you can get so near the tracks. Where I live they're all fenced off. I love your boots.

Missy  – (October 26, 2009 at 2:40 PM)

For all things fashion:

Maria, you are just beautiful ! And I love those pictures !

Mel  – (October 26, 2009 at 7:38 PM)  

I love these photos and your dress and boots are lovely! Haha you look surprisingly calm actually; my eyes would totally have been popping out and I'd been screaming if that train blew right behind me! I love train track pictures, but I get paranoid that my foot is going to get caught in a track and a train is going to run over me...

MAISON CHAPLIN  – (October 26, 2009 at 7:42 PM)

These photos are so enchanting and representative of fall!

The whole outfit is amazing, and I am particularly envious of your hair bow and locket - lovely accents!

vitaMinn style  – (October 26, 2009 at 7:55 PM)  

This is such a nice post! And your expression on that 2nd photo is so priceless! ..It looks like you really got startled by the train horn!! =)

Jen  – (October 26, 2009 at 8:06 PM)  

That is the cutest startled look I have ever seen.

Valencia Lia  – (October 26, 2009 at 8:20 PM)

My husband and I did the same thing recently- AMAZINGly loud when they go by isn't it? I feel your pain. Lovely photos and as always I so love the plaid!

The Pocket Stylist  – (October 26, 2009 at 9:49 PM)

Sheena  – (October 26, 2009 at 9:56 PM)  

Love the entire look and photoshoot. It's perfect for fall. I especially love the Seychelles shoes/booties.

lancelonie  – (October 26, 2009 at 10:05 PM)  

A pretty model, you are! I've always wanted to shoot by a track, too. But because we go out with my ever active daughter, we can't. We've got to find ourselves some dead tracks or something...
Beautiful shots! :)

Giovanna ♥  – (October 26, 2009 at 10:19 PM)  

I love your dress!!! I really love black tights and mini dresses! They look so stylish together! Beautiful pictures as always :)

Eggy  – (October 26, 2009 at 10:25 PM)  

i love love the whole outfit! like usual you pull off the hair bow impeccably. plus really diggin that you chose the train background. oh and those boots are wonderful!

kurarin  – (October 26, 2009 at 10:26 PM)  

oh i really love the dark plaid look. this post reminds me of the time i was in england and took photos on the tracks. it was really funny because my father was so jumpy the entire time.

those boots look even more gorgeous on you than last seen alone!

Leproust Vintage  – (October 26, 2009 at 11:00 PM)  

These are absolutely gorgeous photos; those boots look amazing on you! I recently purchased a similar vintage pair, however every time I wear them, I end up looking so grunge (not my original intention when dressing). You styled them so perfectly and feminine!

koralee  – (October 26, 2009 at 11:03 PM)  

You really are lovely my dear...I so would wear that dress! Adorable!

A Sort Of Fairy Tale  – (October 26, 2009 at 11:23 PM)  

love the photos and the whole outfit! now i know what the perfect red lipstick is...Revlon Really Red :)

Lexie  – (October 26, 2009 at 11:25 PM)  

i LOVE the shot of you getting spooked by the train! adorable!

Style Bird  – (October 26, 2009 at 11:38 PM)

Rose  – (October 27, 2009 at 3:00 AM)  

GOrgeous! The dress is so sweet. I would have jumped out of my skin if that had been me lol.


Zel  – (October 27, 2009 at 4:29 AM)  

Lovely pictures! Especially the second picture as it looks so candid. Gorgeous outfit too btw, especially the boots :).

Wendy  – (October 27, 2009 at 5:17 AM)  

I love everything here. The dress is gorgeous, the shoes are wow! and the bow-ed headband is cute :) I would really wear this, if i have 'em, that is....


Dustjacket Attic  – (October 27, 2009 at 5:48 AM)  

Gosh those boots are great! I just adored the picture of you scared. It was such a sweet little look, I think I'd have looked slightly more unladylike if he did that to me.

Roxanne Rosensteel  – (October 27, 2009 at 1:35 PM)  

That is the perfect dress for you! The color, cut, print, everything about it! And your hair is perfect as always. Your scaredy pic made me chuckle out loud too.

Kelley Anne  – (October 27, 2009 at 10:29 PM)  

Eeek! I love your boots! I just looked at a similar pair of brown ones tonight...maybe I'll be lucky enough to find them in my size in a few days. Great outfit post.

Lauren  – (October 29, 2009 at 9:33 AM)  

Oooooh an autumnal backdrop...I love this time of year! All of the orange looks especially great against the blue dress- way to rock complementary colors!!



Tink in My Closet  – (October 29, 2009 at 10:39 PM)
