cold season (#2)


I think it's about time to bring another inspiring ladyfriend in to talk about what's keeping her excited for these collllllld winter months. Today was the first snow of the season for us in the Twin Cities, so it seems fitting (although I won't lie, I cried exactly three tears at the sight of it). You folks may know Maria from her blog, Lulu Letty. If not, go check it out! Maria has a fantastic style and a sweet etsy store full of goodies. We share a love of the fries at Sweeneys, and also both hail from Michigan (M go blueeeee). I know you'll love what she's got on her cold weather list!

"I am obsessed with coats and have more than any normal/sane person should own, but I just can't seem to help myself. I love being able to snuggle into a coat and feel my winter blues melt away. This vintage beauty was an amazing find that I was lucky enough to snag from the lovely Amanda's shop, Salvaged Strawberry."

(I couldn't find anything similar to this marvelous beauty of Maria's, but if you like the floral tapestry look you should check out this coat.)

"I'm really looking forward to going back to MI for Christmas and hopefully going up to my parents' cottage on Torch Lake. Maybe I'll even get to see some deer like last year!"

(The Mitten State really is picturesque in the winter. Want to see it for yourself? I think this Michigan cabin looks great. I also dream of staying in a treehouse cabin one day, like these ones in Washington.)

Thanks again, Maria, for sharing your winter pick-me-ups! Stay tuned, I've got the equally fab Maggie and Erin on the docket.
