    Can you share where Isla’s outfit is from? And also, how does the dress run? I am 25 weeks pregnant and I am wondering how much larger than normal (2) I should go? Thank you.

      Hi Carey! I just added the details to Isla outfit below mine!! It runs big. I got a 0 and it fit great even with my baby bump!

  14. Piper Ellice says:

    Green is the best with dark hair! I’m thinking about incorporating more of it too, especially in the summer with lots of navy and white.

    You’re such a gorgeous, stylish and sophisticated mommy! :)
    Love this dress!

  18. Rachel! You DO need to add more colors to your wardrobe… your outfits are always beautiful, but they do indeed stand out when you shy away from neutrals and pinks. You can TOTALLY rock this shade of green, among other colors. Gosh, girly! You are so darn gorgeous! And Miss Isla Rose is such a cutie, even when crying. Love the dress!!!

    Beautiful emerald green … The colour of lush and life. Looking fabulous as always! :)
    Ohhh, Poor Princess Isla Rose … Her very first pout pout photo! Be careful Mademoiselle Rachel, what you say or do about Miss little Isla can be used against you 18 years later! (Just a little warning). :)

    Beautiful! :)

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!
