Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! Today I’m excited to be teaming up with Piperlime to share with you my 16 hours of style. One of the things I love most about what I do is that each work day is so different and offers something completely new, whether I’m in my office gathering inspiration for an upcoming collaboration, out on location shooting a project, attending brand meetings or calls, traveling or just tackling my inbox. I love that it’s not the typical 9 to 5 day job.

While my job is extremely important to me, family is my number one so I always make time each day to spend time with my sisters and of course, my cute husband. I come from a very tight knit family and we’re always getting together so it’s important for me to wear a look that will work for morning meetings and for lunch or a park date with my sisters, my niece and Mr. Duke.

Piperlime has always been one of my favorite destinations to shop online because of the versatility they offer. I can shop all of my favorite brands in one location and their products cater to the more glamorous side of my job as well as my everyday personal life.

What does your 16 hour style look like?

xo, Rach

Big thanks to Piperlime for sponsoring this post.

  2. As a mom of four, I always shop for looks that can segue from day to night. I love those Sam Edelman sandals and this dress is so versatile and looks super comfy! Perfect for a day at the park and with the swap of a shoe, it can take you right to dinner!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
