Watermelon Flavored…

When I pair kelly green with hot pink, I instantly think of watermelons, haha. Growing up, my favorite gum was always the watermelon flavored kind and now, one of my favorite fruits is watermelon! No surprise that when my little sister told me that my pops of pink with the green skirt made me look like a watermelon, I totally took that as a compliment ;) Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

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!
