Southern Comfort

Southern Comfort
Hi everyone! This is Maria, of Lulu Letty, guest blogging for Starr while she's seeing all of my favorite bands at Bonnaroo. I can't begin to tell you how excited I was when Starr asked me to do a post. She creates such whimsical and ethereal shoots, that I wanted to do my very best to emulate her.

Like Starr, I live in the country. But while she lives in Arkansas, I live in Michigan, where I think there is definitely a different take on the vintage country look. So in my effort to channel Starr, I was also trying to channel a romantic vintage Southern country style. Let's hope I did it proud.

Haha, Maria! I think I finally have to say that I'm addicted to your blog.
In my blogger dashboard I always look through the recent posts and just look at the pictures first, and when I saw the picture of the hat with the glasses I instantly went 'ah yes, a Lulu Letty post' - and then I looked and it said 'A thought is a blossom' and I was very confused until I read on to see you were guest blogging!
I think that means I'm addicted.
