Pool Side Sun…

Happy Monday everyone! I’m home from paradise but I’m already missing the warm Hawaiian sun! Today I’m sharing one last pool side look I wore while in Hawaii at the beautiful Andaz Maui Resort. I received a ton of questions about where we stayed and if we enjoyed it. If you’re heading to Maui and want a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, I definitely recommend the Andaz! They have to most incredible views of the ocean, the pools are amazing and the food is sooooo good (order the lobster grilled cheese and waffle fries).

Below are a few photos from my stay…

    It was great to meet you and your hubby by the hot tub at the Andaz. I came to take a look at your blog and it’s amazing. We are home from paradise too and I also miss the warmth…I have been dressed in layers since I got home! I look forward to checking back in here every once in a while to see how you and soon to be your baby girl are doing. I can’t wait to find out what you name her!

  81. Jess says:

    Hi! I’m going on vacation in a month and I’ve ready that the water is really rocky and they recommend water shoes to go in. Most I have seen are hideous… Have you ever bought/worn a pair that you like?? Any suggestions? Thanks!!! Cheers!

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!
