Lulu Letty: A Feather in Your Cap

How cool is this ramshackle old barn? The weather beaten boards and red peeling paint appeal to my inner rustic. I know it's completely impractical, but I would love to live in a barn. My bedroom would be in the hayloft.

Did you enjoy the first day of spring?

It was a bit of a crazy weekend. I cleaned and moved furniture like a madwoman. Cole's 30th birthday is this Thursday and I'm having a family party on Saturday! So lots of prepping being done.

Getting caught up on my blog reading today.

How adorable are you?! Love the striped tank, it creates a wonderful contrast against the blacks and browns. (:

SOO great. You look really really gorgeous in these. I am a huge hat person, and that little feather really does it for me. Plus the tiny bag? Golden.

Oh you had such a lovely weather!
Loving your vintage bag!


MJ  – (March 22, 2010 at 3:48 AM)  

I don't know if it's the case in the USA but in Britain loads of people live in converted barns - I have a friend that does! It's a bit cleaner than this one though :)

You look lovely, as always.

Tonia  – (March 22, 2010 at 3:53 AM)  

Oh.My.God. Great hat! There should be more hat wearing in the world.

Rose  – (March 22, 2010 at 4:49 AM)  

Oh that barn! Sometimes old is just so much better than new.


ElyZa  – (March 22, 2010 at 4:52 AM)  

You look alway dressed up perfectly with your settings! I love your style :)

Chocolate and Cognac  – (March 22, 2010 at 5:17 AM)  

Your outfit and the setting are great! Love the striped top, and the gold necklace against it is perfect :)

My aunt and uncle actually bought a broken down, rustic barn and over 10 years turned it into a lovely vacation house. I definitely want to do the same

Tink in My Closet  – (March 22, 2010 at 7:49 AM)  

the boots and the barn are a great coupling:)

jamilah  – (March 22, 2010 at 9:40 AM)

Crystal  – (March 22, 2010 at 10:09 AM)  

Oh man! Just when I thought I had enough velvet items in my wardrobe I see these short beauties.

Starr Crow  – (March 22, 2010 at 10:31 AM)  

yeah.. it rained and snowed here in Arkansas! all i wanted to do was play outside for spring break, but the weather has a different idea.

i want your purse SOO. SOO. BAD. wow, terribly cute. And i guess if i took your purse I'd have to steal the matching boots too. I already have the target bowler, so if i snatched the other accessories, I'd look just like ya!

teasing. :)

Jen –   – (March 22, 2010 at 11:15 AM)  

Oh, yeah, I'm back! Whoo!

You look so cute in that hat. People should always wear hats.

LoveCharlesVintage  – (March 22, 2010 at 11:22 AM)

heather  – (March 22, 2010 at 11:49 AM)  

I really love your use of brown, black, and red. It's a great sophisticated casual. I just found your blog and am now following! I think you're lovely <3


Francy  – (March 22, 2010 at 11:54 AM)  

I'm kind of obsessed with old barns. They're so beautiful and creepy! You look lovely here!

Mara  – (March 22, 2010 at 12:35 PM)  

I am so excited that it's spring! You look adorable in that red and white striped shirt and those riding boots!

Camilla  – (March 22, 2010 at 12:45 PM)  

You really suit the girly parisian look Maria x


Rosie  – (March 22, 2010 at 1:02 PM)  

Seriously, you keep outdoing yourself Maria! This is so pretty!

DearBeatrice  – (March 22, 2010 at 1:15 PM)  

You look so cute! I love the unexpectedness of the velvet in the shorts! ooh and i so want a little bag like that!! they're hard to find.

Sheena  – (March 22, 2010 at 1:49 PM)  

I love the way that you've styled your outfit! Especially the black and brown (a favorite combo) with the striped top. Very cute! Love the location, too!

Delightfully Tacky  – (March 22, 2010 at 1:54 PM)  

This outfit is amazing. It especially looks perfect at that location. Gorgeous photos!

And I love that song, funeral. I just did a cover of it last night so it was in my head all day.

Little Garcon  – (March 22, 2010 at 4:10 PM)  

I love your boots so much! There is a pair very similar to those at my local vintage shop. I eye them everytime I go into the store and then I pick them up all excited and realize they are a size 7. I'm a size 9.

So yes I have some serious boot envy!

Bella  – (March 22, 2010 at 4:19 PM)  

those velvet shorts are so adorable! :) xxx

Lemondrop Marie  – (March 22, 2010 at 4:32 PM)  

Those boots are worn to perfection and they look smashing with black near that gorgeous old barn.

You look super fit lady. Love the stripes!

thumbelina  – (March 22, 2010 at 7:40 PM)  

I love the way you combined the red, black, and brown. I've also wanted to live in a barn after reading so many historical fiction novels when I was younger!

Dotted With Hearts  – (March 22, 2010 at 7:42 PM)  

You look really nice here :)
I can even imagine myself in your clothes!

Taylor Sterling  – (March 22, 2010 at 7:51 PM)

Tieka, Selective Potential  – (March 22, 2010 at 7:57 PM)  

Oh these photos are just amazing - and you look stunning!

Lloyd & The Tubsters  – (March 22, 2010 at 10:04 PM)  

These shots are fantastic. And I'm always so jealous of your many vintage purses. Do you find most of them on ebay?

Giovanna ♥  – (March 22, 2010 at 10:25 PM)  

Adorable pictures!! I always love your style :)

Rhiannon  – (March 22, 2010 at 10:30 PM)  

Aww, so cute! And that must be the best Coach bag ever.

Pappelschnee  – (March 23, 2010 at 10:10 AM)  

The outfit is so great! I esp. love the shoes :) Please tell Cole, his pictures are always so perfect!

Manja  – (March 23, 2010 at 12:36 PM)  

I am really lovin your velvet shorts! :)

Erica Leigh  – (March 24, 2010 at 12:41 AM)  

i think this is my favorite outfit yet!!! i like that i can tell how your outfits always incorporate a bunch of inspirations from different styles/decades but they all come together so cohesively.


jeune_premier  – (March 24, 2010 at 6:09 PM)  

i have a thong about how can black and brown be mixed and look good....but you did it with a great result!nice pics and i love the way you look at the camera at the first pic!
