There’s something about the color yellow, especially when paired with a lemon print that is so refreshing and just makes me happy! A few days ago, I was browsing through Nordstrom and immediately, I was drawn to this playful and flirty print by Kate Spade. Both pieces are the perfect spring refresher my closet needed! What items/colors are you adding to your wardrobe for a little spring refresher?

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!
