  45. Kate says:

    Ok – I just want to say, I love this outfit. I strayed from PinkPeonies over the past year because the outfits seemed to all blend together and too old for her, but THIS, this outfit is killing it. Looking back at older posts I am loving the infusion of color & younger looks. The recent embrace of a more fun, colorful & youthful look is extremely refreshing and is fantastic to see as a reader! Cheers Rachel – keep it up! Also the makeup looks playful & fun, but young and natural! I’ll now be adding PP back to my daily blog roll.

  46. Love this mix of colors! Great pics for the first day of Spring.

  47. Casey says:

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!
