Happy Monday everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts last week, I mainly wore sweats because nothing fits me anymore (even most of my maternity clothes). My bump is getting bigger and bigger everyday and I’m finding myself wanting to only wear stretchy pants and a stolen tee shirt from Drew just about everyday!

Today’s look is what I wore to church yesterday. I love the bright hue of this dress but what I love even more is that it’s SO comfortable!! There really is nothing better than a stretchy dress when you’re 9 months pregnant ;)

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!
