Sorry for the no post yesterday, the hubs and I have been moving into our new home and let me tell you, it’s a never ending process! With the big move happening this week, I’ve barely had time to get out of my sweats from all the cleaning and unpacking but yesterday, I was going a little stir crazy and I had to put something on and get out of the house (hence today’s soft, feminine yet casual look). If you love this cardigan I’m wearing see below for how you can get 20% off your next Calypso purchase by giving back!

Calypso is be partnering with Clothes4Souls from May 8th-20th. Bring in a gently used dress, skirt, or shirt to donate to Clothes4Souls to receive 20% off a full priced purchase. You can find more info here.

xo, Rach

When I looked at the website though, the one it’s linked to is different (shorter) but I found the one you’ve shown here in petal as you’re wearing, in case anyone else is wondering. :) Looks like they’re offering $50 off any regular priced cashmere cardigan too with code: CASHMERE50 which is awesome! Good luck with the move!

    ~Sarah of Sarah’s Real Life

  26. Moving is definitely a drag! But at least you were able to pull away for a quick minute to take some cute snapshots. Love the Calyspo cardi, it really is such a sweet color, and pair with the rockstud flat make this look perfect!

  32. Bekka says:

    Adore this look… The soft pink is so pretty and feminine. I definitely have an obsession with all things Valentino. I wore the ballet flats in cognac on my blog a few weeks ago. Obsessing over your cage ones. The color is just beautiful. Best of luck with moving! Always a stressful process, but so worth it to be in new, great space.

    Now, THIS is my kind of style! So relaxed yet pulled together. I love everything about this look, Rach! I understand. I’ve been moving too. Congrats on your new home! I’m hoping to see many blog posts about your house building journey! You have AMAZING taste in everything! Happy weekend! XO

  36. Rebecca says:

    I’m loving this soft look!!

  37. Alexandra says:

    Hi Rach, i love how you always post your lip colors. Between this YSL and the kiss and blush #9 which one would you say you like more and is more flattering? xo

    • Rachel Parcell says:


      They’re a completely different formula. Kiss and blush feels lighter and more like an airy gloss while this ysl feels like a true lipstick. For everyday natural makeup, I like kiss and blush and for more of a saturated look I like this ysl, rouge volupte.

      Hope this helps!

  38. Emma Fox says:

    Love the pale baby pink! Can’t beat a relaxed, but feminine look like this!

  39. Stephanie says:

    This is the PERFECT casual look! I’ve always loved open, flowy cardigans and this one is so beautiful! The jeans are the perfect match with the slim fit and the distressing. I adore those flats-can’t say enough about how perfect they are! Good luck moving! It is such an exhausting process. I can’t wait until you are all settled into your gorgeous new home.

    I’ve been drooling over everything Rockstud these days and you might have convinced me to go with the flats. Out of curiosity what size do you wear? I don’t know if my feet would look way too big or not!!!

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!
