  36. Maria says:

    I think the tulle skirt outfit is my favorite, but that’s because I just featured a tulle skirt on my blog recently. I did a red tulle skirt with a black lace blouse. There is something about that type of skirt that just looks feminine and pretty. I love it! Thanks for sharing Rach. :-) Xo, Maria

    I love all 3 but if I had to pick a favorite, I would go for the last look! It’s just so fancy and festive. I am becoming obsessed with anything red, and the sweater, gorgeous tulle skirt, Valentino pumps and red lips and nails are just gorgeous! Congrats again mama to be :)

    Love these Christmas looks! Red really suits you – on lips, as clothes and shoes!

  46. Denise says:

    I remember all of these looks! Hard to believe that I’ve been following your blog from the very beginning and you posted photos of little boy outfits that you sent to Drew and he said, maybe in a couple years, and now you are expecting. So exciting! I can’t wait to see you transition into a mother, although you already have great experience being an aunt to Capri. So happy for you and all of your success!!

  47. Adele says:

    I love them all Rach, perfectly styles, but if I had to choose it would be the sequin skirt outfit, festive yet edgy!
    Hugs Adele xoxo

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!
