Happy Friday, everyone!! I get SO many reader questions about what my typical go-to look is.  It doesn’t matter what the current season is, it always consists of distressed denim with a top/blouse and heels! Since it’s spring, I added a lightweight flirty top with a nude wedge to elongate my legs and add a pop of pink! Lace is totally trending right now so when I saw this top from Neiman Marcus Last Call, I knew it would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe for both spring and summer! Also my wedges are Stuart Weitzman (found at NM Last Call) and they are SO comfy and flattering! I love finding my favorite designers on sale!!

What spring trends are you loving?!

Here are a few more of my favorites from Last Call that are perfect for spring and transitioning into summer…

Xo, Rach

  13. Rebecca says:

    Super cute look! I noticed with this pregnancy and your last you are able
    to wear regular jeans for quite a while, do you size up? How do you wear your normal jeans for so long? I’m pregnant myself and I’d love to know if there is any trick ;)

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Honestly there isn’t a trick other than I squeeze into them!! haha I’ll be making the switch to maternity jeans soon enough :)

    I’m trying to figure out the allure of all this white lace.

    Cute outfit! Love the bag!


  40. Pam says:

    That lace top is adorable! Love the color of the bag as well!♥

  41. Susie says:

    New follower and so excited to find a fashionista that showcases beautiful, tasteful, classic looks! I’d about given up finding any clothes that are ladylike, but still fresh and modern! You had me at floral midi skirts and pink peonie’s! I can only imagine the backlash you get from haters who probably have more of an issue with your conservative beliefs than your fashion choices. Don’t even listen to them. Seeing a woman who got married, then pregnant, and doesn’t show off her body for the world to see, like that famous family that starts with a K, is threatening! Keep it up and I wish you much success with your new fashion line, ( I purchased both the floral dress and pink lace skirt) and your beautiful family!

  42. Jeanette says:

    Hi Rach love the look! I am wondering how you wear non-maternity jeans, do you wear a belly band, buy a larger size any maternity styles you recommend. I am only 12 weeks and already having trouble fitting into mine !

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Every pregnancy is different! I’ve worn belly bands before but haven’t yet with this pregnancy. I’ll be switching to maternity jeans soon enough and will share all of my favorites, so stay tuned! Congrats on your pregnancy :)

      Xo Rach

  43. Sophie says:

    Nice style, love how you mix jeans with lace top <3

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!
