Holiday Spirit…

I’m officially in the holiday spirit! Last week we had the first snow fall, our halls have been decked and we have Christmas music playing as background music at all times. On Sunday, I couldn’t help but pull out my fuzzy red sweater and classic black and white skirt from Chic Wish for a little outfit holiday spirit! Have you started prepping for the holidays or do you hold off until Thanksgiving is over?

More holiday ready pieces…

    I hold off until Thanksgiving is over. My tradition is to decorate the tree the day after Thanksgiving since everyone has time off work. It’s very relaxing and a fun way to kick off the Christmas season!

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!
