red lips & hats.

My sister sent over this water for elephants inspired wedding & engagement session (thanks Tiffany!) and I thought I'd share a few of my favorites.  I personally haven't seen the film, nor have I finished the book (think I started it over a year ago) but I can't get enough of these rustic images inspired by the film. With these cold rainy days here in SF, I think a cute hat and a pop of red on the lip would make this weather a bit more bearable...

*p.s. one of my go-to reds is Lady Bug by MAC.

  7. These shots are gorgeous! I especially love your sister's emerald colored dress with the red lipstick pairing. Not to mention, nothing screams old-school romantic like a train depot. It's very "Love in the Afternoon."

    Thanks for sharing! I love MAC, too. In fact, I've got a MAC surprise to follow on my blog very soon.
