Happy Thursday everyone! Isla Rose is on the move and my back has been killing me lately chasing her around and lifting her up and down all day. We escaped to the pool for the last two days straight so we can splash and float around (weightless) it’s been so nice and Isla is such a little fishy she LOVES the water. Here’s my pool day look I wore yesterday, and how darling is Isla’s one piece?! The back of it is my favorite!!!!

    Beautiful pics and Isla is the cutest! I just found out I’m 5 weeks pregnant!!! We are so excited since this is our first, looking at your pics def gives me inspo, would you be able to do a post about what you do to prevent stretch marks and what your baby bump routine is? Thank you 💗

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Hi Crytal!! I didn’t get any with Isla! I have heard stretch marks are more of a genetic thing and I moisturize my body every night with the Kiehl’s Creme de Corpse! I love it so much!

      xo, Rach

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!
