Lulu Letty: Pugtown, U.S.A.

Pugtown, U.S.A.

Pugtown, U.S.A.
Wellie was in desperate need of some time away from the other dogs, so he joined Cole and I for a trip to the little town of Birmingham. The weather has been so completely gorgeous lately, with cloudless skies and temperatures in the 50's, that yesterday was a perfect day to spend strolling through town.

Well you sure know how to melt my heart....Wellington is too adorable, those expressions...priceless.

You both look so french in the walking shots...tell Welli that, I'm sure it'll amuse him!

I loved your outfit, just perfect for a day out with friends. Sounds like a gorgeous day and what a sweet town.

Wellie is among the cutest of the cute in Pug world! Weekend trips, day or entire, are the best. Glad to hear little Wellie got a little alone time with the parents!

Starr- A Thought Is The Blossom  – (March 8, 2010 at 9:16 AM)  

these are so cute Maria! i'm dying over your thrifted pants right now too, just love the way you rolled them up. the boots really bring a modern element to this vintage look. LOVE.

funny story. we went to a birthday party for a dog last night. it was a whole neighborhood wide thing, tons of dogs, kids, and adults... free booze b/c the dog owner also owns a liquor store, free food, and even one of those blow up things for kids to jump in. it was crazy!! anyway, there were so many pugs there and they were just the horniest things. ALL of them were trying to hump other dogs, sometimes even two at once!! yikes! i think pugs are sooo precious, just never realized they were so horny. lol Wellie is adorable though.

elli  – (March 8, 2010 at 9:48 AM)  

I like you so much in trousers, Maria!
The whole outfit is really amazing.
And Wellington is just so super cool!

And you are so right with the wallpaper in the restaurant I went! Sooo lovely. Such bight colours!

Have a good day!
love, Elli<3

Fabulous as always! Have a sweet day!

Graham I. Haynes  – (March 8, 2010 at 1:46 PM)  

Those must be called "Zooey" because of Miss Deschanel. I think I saw her in one of those ads. In any case, they're smashing on you. And the boyfriend look is DEF working.

avalonne  – (March 8, 2010 at 1:54 PM)  

Hey Maria, you're on the homepage of chictopia! :) Yay!
