I can’t believe today is the first day of May!!! I love the month of May for so many reasons, but mostly because the weather gets warmer and we get closer to summer (it randomly snowed in Utah last Friday!!! I hope I don’t see snow for several months ;) and my Isla Rose turns TWO on Wednesday!

Here’s a closer look at what I wore a couple weekends ago when I spoke at the RewardStyle conference. I’m kind of obsessed with this dress and don’t even get me started on these heels!

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday, thanks for stopping by!!

xo, Rach

  32. Catarina says:

    Hi Rachel ! I have been wondering how you keep your shoes looking so good even after wearing them for quite some time. I’m Portuguese, so I walk in this marvelous cobblestone all day long and I wish I could preserve my designer shoes… Do you have any tips you could share ? Thank you in advance and congratulations for your beautiful blog and killer outfits !

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Hi Catarina! Honestly, they don’t always look good after I wear them. I try to watch where I walk and put them on the shelf when I’m not wearing them. But shoes are meant to be worn!! I don’t know if this answers your question or not!

      xo, Rach

  33. Jaye says:

    This outfit is gorgeous! I love how you layered the dress with the classic button front shirt, very elegant! As well as I absolutely love the way you dress in general. The way you incorporate modesty in your personal style is truly beautiful.

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!
