Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are ready for the holiday tomorrow! I still have a ton of errands to run AND I need to make a homemade pie (our family is having a ‘best homemade pie’ contest) if any of you have a yummy pie recipe, or a filling idea you want to share I would LOVE any help I can get!

Today I’m sharing a look I wore a few Sundays ago. I love the bold red paired with the soft grey SJP pumps and sweater (and how cute is my furry accessory/photo bomber, he loves to tag along while Drew and I take photos).

more from the SJP collection…

    I have the best homemade apple pie recipe from my sweet Grandma, it’s been in the family for years and it is hands down the best, most simple apple pie! Super easy to make too. I love your blog, and hope you find this recipe helpful and maybe even use it.

    Pie Crust:
    2/3 cups shortening
    2 C flour
    1 t salt
    5-7 T of cold water

    * cut shortening into flour and salt mixture, then add T of cold water one at a time and form into two balls. Roll out to make top and bottom layer of pie.

    Pie Filling
    6-8 Granny Smith Apples, peeled
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    2/3 cup sugar
    1/3 cup corn starch
    1 T lemon juice
    2 T butter
    1 lg egg white

    great and simple color combo. Please come check out my Thanksgiving outfits selection.

  41. Julia says:

    Stunning! In terms of pie you can do four fillings instead of one by dividing the pie into four quarters, peach Apple pecan and cherry were always our family favorites!

  42. Gorgeous look! I love the red and gray color combination, they are very stunning together! And the red midi skirt truly stands out in this look.

  43. Rachel says:

    Great look Rachel! Love the soft grey pumps!

  59. Erin says:

    My go to dessert is an easy one, chocolate cake, chocolate pudding, Heath Bar (crumbled up) and Kahlua- I would make it as a truffle- and you can put whipped cream in between the layers and the layer with the cake put a little bit of the Kahlua on it. The top layer should be the whipped cream with the broken up bits of Heath Bar. I made this when my husband and I were dating- and all of his friends devoured it!
    Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you win!

  60. Denise says:

    Oh my goodness those shoes! Lovely color combo! You always have such beautiful color combinations I wouldn’t have thought to put together. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

    Loving the red and grey combo!! That skirt is fabulous on you. Gorgeous watch!! Good luck with your pie contest!! Sounds fun-yum:)

  63. What a great colour red! Best of luck with the pie making, I’m sure whatever you decide on will be lovely, I’m a bit of a plain jane though, so a really good apple pie with cinnamon suits me down to the ground!!

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!
