Mountain Air…

Drew, Dash and I loaded the car and headed up the canyon to enjoy the fresh mountain air on Saturday. It was such a charming evening playing by the lake, making tin foil dinners, roasting lots of s’mores and just escaping the world for a few hours (Dash was in complete puppy heaven). I pulled out my favorite booties and finished off the look with this cozy sweater from Sosie, reminding me why I love fall clothing so much and I’m now fully craving autumn time! What about you, are you ready for sweaters, boots and layers??

As always, thanks so much for reading!

xo, Rach

Big thanks to Sosie for sponsoring this post.

  1. Although I absolutely adore summer, I am getting ready for autumn wardrobe things! I love big chunky knits with jeans and boots. I’ve never heard of sosie so thanks for the intro, love the look of that top and those jeans are perfect!

    Hello Rach, your blog is really great. :-) I am from Czech republic and I love fashion and your style is like my style. :-)
    Dash is fast growing up, I know that because I have puppy rottweiler and he is bigger and bigger every day :-)

    These photos make me want to cosy up by that fire and wrap a big cardigan around me! Love it. I’m not quite ready to give up on summer, especially as I have a holiday to sunny Spain booked for a few week’s time, but it’s definitely starting to feel a bit Autumnal here in the UK. Love your outfit, and such good photos x

  5. Grace 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!
