Black x Pink…

It’s no secret I’m a pink girl. I have always gravitated towards the color, and in my opinion, pink makes the world a prettier and happier place! When I spotted these Kate Spade heels on the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, naturally, I fell in love. Kind of obsessed with them. What’s your favorite item you scored on the sale??

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!
