Light and Airy…

I love wearing light and airy color combos and athough fall is officially here, doesn’t mean you need to shy away from pastel hues and crisp whites, like this blouse from ShopSosie. It’s unexpected for the season, but still totally works for the few warm and sunny days we have left!

  27. Tracy says:

    There seems to be something wrong with your page. Usually when I scroll down to view your pics the top bar or header rolls all the way up. It is not doing that so the pictures are being cut off and you can’t see the entire outfit/picture. I don’t think it’s my computer. Please let me know if you or your readers are experiencing the same thing. Thanks !! :)

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!
