Happy Monday everyone! I’m here in beautiful Hawaii with my husband, sister (and her little family) enjoying a relaxing week in paradise before our cute baby girl gets here! Yesterday we woke up bright and early to enjoy the sunrise and then headed to church and Sunday brunch. Afterwards we went to the beach to soak up the sun and play in the water. It was the perfect first day in paradise and I’ve officially decided that Maui is one of my favorite places on earth!

xo, Rach

  45. Anna says:

    You look stunning dear and I love that bright and color bag! Also, major props to you to making it to church while on vacation. That’s dedication to your faith I think… It’s sad to see so many people (who don’t even know you) make judgement calls about what you should and shouldn’t be doing (on vacation of all things). I can’t imagine how you handle the negativity sometimes – I would be crying in the pillow. But I see that by not engaging and defending yourself you actually do yourself a favor and spare some headache and anxiety. Thanks for being such a great example of graceful and respectful blogger.

  57. Rachel,

    It was so fun to see you and Emily yesterday. You are both even more DARLING in real life. Is that even possible?! ! :-). I told my sister and sister-in-laws that the two of you and your husbands were also just so nice and fun to talk to. And it was so obvious that your husband and brother-in-law are genuinely good friends and love hanging out with each other. I loved it!!!!

    It looks like you are soaking up every minute of this beautiful island. We have two more days here and plan to do the same!! It’s probably good we only have two more days-oh my goodness-we have eaten so much good food. The workouts can’t keep up with the calories! Haha! Enjoy every minute of this paradise with your favorite people. I think you are such a great family.

    XOXO Ann

This is such an effortless, but well put together outfit that anyone (pregnant or not) can pull off. Stunning look and stunning mama to be! Thank you for sharing a more casual look that more of us can relate to.

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!
