Happy Friday everyone! Today’s post is coming to you from the colorful streets of San Jose del Cabo, one of the most charming cities I’ve ever visited. I love the small town vibe, the mexican flare and of course, all the quaint shops and galleries lining the main square. If you are headed to Cabo, I definitely recommend spending an afternoon there, window shopping and picking up fresh mangos at the fruit stands.

I hope your weekend is as cheerful and colorful as the city of San Jose!

xo, Rach

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!
