Happy Wednesday, everyone!! I picked up this top at Nordstrom last week because the second I saw it I knew I needed it! I don’t have a ton of velvet in my wardrobe, but I do love the texture and I love how it’s unique and different. And how perfect is this deep plum shade for fall?!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

xo, Rach

    Beautiful post, Rach! Velvet is such a beautiful way to add texture to fall looks. I love this short sleeve top to transition into fall-looks amazing with denim. Also, I just ordered your lovely white skirt. Thank you for your amazing generosity while helping the victims of Hurricane Harvey. You are always an inspiration.

  12. This may be one of my most FAVORITE looks you’ve ever done on the blog! That velvet, your hair, the casual jeans – soooo good!

    Love this! I’m so excited about all the velvet for fall! I know Eileen Fisher runs larger. For reference can you share what size your wearing?

  15. Love this outfit and your hair looks fabulous like this!


  16. Huong says:

    This is a beautiful look, Rach! I don’t have much velvet in my wardrobe either. Definitely going to add some to my closet this fall. Here’s to hoping Dallas will actually get cold enough for me to wear a thick fabric, ha!

    Sidenote, totally feel like this is the 2014 Rach and I LOVE it! xo

  35. Lauren says:

    So love that velvet top and the whole velvet trend!


  36. Amy says:

    Love the color of your hair, but I think you’d look much better if you cut it. It’s so long and stringy. You can totally pull off a shoulder length or a bob. I think a makeover would do wonders for you.

  37. SK says:

    Love this top, Cuteeee shirt and look so comfy. I endlessly desire that luxe feel after a long summer.

    Smile and Style on!

    Velvet and denim must be a chic version of velvet <3

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!
