Since becoming a mom of two I feel like life has been going 100 miles per hour! It has been a whirlwind of emotions and exhaustion, but it’s a role that I wouldn’t trade for the world. Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a mom!

Today I’m partnering with Banana Republic for their Turn It Up campaign! I’ve always loved shopping at Banana Republic and I’m excited about this campaign because it encourages everyone everywhere to turn up every aspect of their life. I’ve decided to turn up my confidence and attitude in embracing my role as a mama of a busy, full-of-energy toddler and a cuddly newborn! Even though it’s hard work and there are never enough hours in the day (I don’t know how you mamas with lots of kids do it!!), it’s the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done and will ever do. I feel like as women we can make a huge impact in the world and those around us, especially our children!

I’d love to hear how you’re turning up your life, so be sure to share below in the comments!!

Also, here are some of my favorite pieces from Banana Republic! I especially love this sweater and jacket, they make for the perfect statement pieces for fall…

xo, Rach

    I’ve decided to be a little more confident, have more faith in me and take risks in life and work hard to do what I love ♡

    Bisous, Josie

    Love this campaign! Banana Republic is such a great company. I worked for them all throughout college.
    Totally love those booties too and that they hit a little higher on the ankle. Such a fun twist on a classic bootie.
    XOXO, Cassie Rea

    As I was scrolling through this post’s pictures, Before I even read your comment about turning up your confidence, I was thinking to myself how can someone look so good and confident after just having a baby. Motherhood suits you Rach!!! Your confidence really comes through in your photos. Hope you have a great day😘😘 xo, Emily

  9. Jalisa says:

    I love this campaign, it sounds very inspiring and encouraging and I love what you shared on what you’d like to turn up. I’d have to say confidence is one I’d love to work on, too. In fact, I’m pretty sure most of us women could use some turning up in that department, with all the standards and exceptions people and society through our way on a daily basis! You are an incredible mom, Rach, you can see it through your photos and the little snippets of your life you share with us. Plus, you always share such lovely outfits during and post pregnancy that demonstrate that you don’t have to compromise style at all while pregnant and throughout motherhood, that’s huge! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

    Love this campaign! I have made the decision to go all out this year in terms of my school volunteer time. I have always had a huge presence at our school, but I decided to turn it up a notch. Not only am I there 4 days/week, but I also have made time to volunteer in grades other than theirs. It has been rewarding thus far and I am enjoying making a difference! xo

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!
