Happy Tuesday! Here’s a look at my beach look from yesterday!!! I’m kind of in love with the ruffle detail on this suit and the high-waisted shorts have been my best friends this week (I still have a baby pooch on my lower stomach when I turn to the side so they help hide and suck everything in ;).

Thanks for stopping by!!

xo, Rach

    I love one piece suits like the one you’re wearing for this reason, they can double as a bodysuit! I love the way it looks with the high waisted shorts, though I haven’t noticed a pooch, Rach, lol. You look absolutely amazing for 2 children, nearly back to back. Thanks for sharing and I hope you’re having a wonderful day!



  12. Taylor says:

    Ah! This ruffle suit is sooo cute and the color looks great on you! Your pictures having me wish I was somewhere tropical right now…

    i love your bathing suit!! you can’t even tell it’s one with the shorts!!! so cute!

  16. Lex says:

    I keep seeing you and your sister wear these sandals and I’m so jealous, I want them so badly. Such beautiful shoes. I need to find a good pair of gladiators (as mine are much beloved and falling apart) soon.

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      We LOVE these sandals so much!!! haha

      xo, Rach

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Rebecca Minkoff makes great ones that are super similar! They are a little more budget friendly than the Valentino option! Get yourself a new pair of gladiators this summer!

  17. Love this look! That bathing suit is so pretty! Looks fantastic on you!

  18. Paige says:

    You look amazing in this look!


  19. Jessica says:

  21. Alyssa says:

    I love that this is a swimsuit that you turned into a top!! This is so so cute! Makes me so excited for summer again! xx

    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Thanks Alyssa! Especially on long trips, I try to think of ways to get multiple uses out of different pieces so I don’t need to pack a million bags! haha

  22. Elizabeth says:

    Love the ruffles on the swimsuit – plus the beach isn’t too bad either!

  23. That red works brilliantly on you! Total yum!

  24. Davida says:

    Love your suit! I need to get some cute one pieces because 2 pieces are overrated!

  25. This is gorgeous! Love how it looks like a top with the shorts.

  26. Hayley Larue says:

    This swimsuit is the cutest!! Love the ruffles <3

  27. So lovely, and I don’t see any pooch at all! How do you find time to do all your photo shoots? My 8 month old gives me about 5 minutes of shooting before losing his mind, Any tips for working around a little one would be appreciated!


    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Thanks Marisa!! Photoshoots aren’t easy with two little ones. But I try to do them while they are napping, or since my sister Emily has been here with us she watches the Isla while my husband snaps a few photos! But it doesn’t always work out! haha

      xo, Rach

  28. Nancy says:

    LOVE the swimsuit! What size are you wearing? I recently had a baby, too, and am not sure what size to order!

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!
