Lulu Letty: Making Me Blush

This is Tieka's skirt and another Delightful Dozen swap! I don't normally wear a lot of pink or pencil skirts, but this was pretty fun to style! I felt it called for a prim school girl look with the western bow tie and bowler hat.

I loved the cement railroad marker post...47 miles to Detroit!

How was everyone's weekend? It's a little crazy here with three dogs, but also very silly. Maisy and Pip run in circles chasing each other for hours. I don't know where they get their energy.

I love the skirt!
But then again I love anything pink :)


Kate Russell  – (July 25, 2010 at 11:15 PM)  

You are lovely. I love your blog.


Brianna  – (July 25, 2010 at 11:21 PM)  

Very pretty skirt--the perfect, different color for it!

Miss Soggy Smog  – (July 25, 2010 at 11:46 PM)  

That has to be the absolute cutest combination of items. The bow tie, the hat, the shoes, the skirt and your beautiful face!!!!! I love the one of you walking (balancing extremely gracefully) on the steel track! So great!

That is such a pretty shade of pink & love the little necklace you have on.

Meg!  – (July 26, 2010 at 12:36 AM)  

I love how you've styled that skirt! It suits you quite well, I think.

Luchie  – (July 26, 2010 at 1:20 AM)  

aww the skirt is so pretty!! I love it, and great photos as always :)

Haley  – (July 26, 2010 at 2:04 AM)  

I love the lighting in the photos. I am loving the skirt too!

Anniina  – (July 26, 2010 at 2:15 AM)  

I love this outfit, the skirt is lovely and so is the blouse. The lighting in the photos is very beautiful. I have a hat like that, but I probably wouldn't have thought of combining it with something girly. So, I have to thank you for inspiration!

 – (July 26, 2010 at 2:30 AM)  

I adore this outfit! That skirt is lovely.


Jana and Vanessa  – (July 26, 2010 at 2:50 AM)

Regina –   – (July 26, 2010 at 4:01 AM)  

What an amazing photo shoot! Such perfect weather, perfect outfit. Love the bow-hat-combination.

Kate  – (July 26, 2010 at 4:42 AM)  

The style of the skirt & the colour suit you both so well! I love the simple pairing with white. You've worn it well.

Sahakiel  – (July 26, 2010 at 4:48 AM)  

Wow, this is a gorgeous outfit, Maria; and the color of the skirt is beautiful! Everybody says that this pink fits on me, but I see myself so pale that sometimes I don't know...

Btw, the hat is sooooo cute, I'm searching for one like that for a long time!

I guess that your weekend was crazy with the little dogs, but also so funny.



Carina  – (July 26, 2010 at 4:49 AM)  

Pretty coloured skirt! I've been looking for something like this :)

Wangari M.  – (July 26, 2010 at 5:01 AM)  

Loved how you styled the skirt, and although youd don't wear a lot of pink I think it suits you.

Velvet  – (July 26, 2010 at 5:20 AM)  

Gorgeous outfit. You are very skilful with the eyeliner!


Laia  – (July 26, 2010 at 6:14 AM)

Justice Pirate  – (July 26, 2010 at 6:15 AM)

I'm definitely not a pink person, but I've been feeling it this year. Love this skirt - super precious.

HereWeGoAJen  – (July 26, 2010 at 7:24 AM)  

Very cute skirt! It's a very flattering length on you too.

Bea  – (July 26, 2010 at 7:43 AM)  

It's fun to see you in pastel pink-but you definitely styled it to still be very you.

I like how you tied the look together with all the black accessories. And you always have great shoot locations :)

Rosalie  – (July 26, 2010 at 10:07 AM)  

I LOVE this outfit! I wish I'd got this skirt when it was in stock as it's so cute. I love the combination of the pink skirt and chunky black shoes. I also love bowties. You look like an adorable girl-version of Charlie Chaplin!
