Beach Play…

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Today’s look is one I wore a few weeks ago while playing on the beautiful beaches of Cabo. I typically like to wear conservative swim wear, mostly one-pieces, but I’ve always wanted to give the high-waisted two piece a try because they have a retro twist but still keep you covered up. I put a photo of this swimsuit on my Instagram while I was packing for Cabo and I had so many questions about where I purchased it. Unfortunately, it has been unavailable until now so if you saw it and loved it, you can find it here. Thanks for reading!

xo, Rach

    LOVE IT.
    I would get one for myself, but am concerned that the white would turn transparent when wet.

    Girl, u could cut & paste a swimsuit out of a paper sack & you’d make it look couture! Great shots & lovely scenery as always! & thanks for the fitness info as well previously, I’m a mom on the hunt to shed some unwanted LBs myself.

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!
