Gingham Shift Dress

Happy Thursday guys! I am so excited to share with you guys today my first outfit post of the year! reached out to me a little while ago to collaborate for my instagram and sent me this dress. I actually ended up loving it so much, I wanted to turn it into a blog post.  I love the silhouette and the bow ties in the back! The dress is only $15, and I have had a lot of people ask me about the quality. I have ordered from them before and have always been satisfied with the quality of their clothes and this dress is no exception. For size reference, I am wearing an XS.

On another note, I hope everyone has had a great start to their year! I really enjoyed mine and was able to relax and spend time with family. I am now back to my studies, and will be sharing more about my week tomorrow!


Cute and Comfy Workout Clothes

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Good morning everyone! I hope you have all had a good week so far. I have been working out a ton more in the past few weeks and wanted to share with you all my favorite workout pieces!

I added this yoga mat as my first pick because I have used yoga mats for so many different types of workouts. They are also awesome for at home workouts. Also, I cannot say enough good things about this pullover! I bought mine last year for a trip to Moab and loved it. For sizing, mine is the men's and I ordered a small and it fits oversized. I bought this tee on black Friday and love it (I wore it while I was writing this post actually). I love wearing it with a bralette and leggings. Lastly, I love wearing hats for workouts outside.  This hat is my current favorite, however for those of you who don't want to order a hat online, Walmart has almost the exact same hat for SUPER cheap.

Let me know what your favorite workouts are!

P.S. Almost all of the things I chose are either cheap or having a great sale!

Happy 2018!

Tuesday, January 2, 2018

Happy New Year everyone! I took a brief break from blogging for Christmas and New Years so that I could spend time with my family and friends and plan out some goals for Pretty as a Peony for 2018. I am not going to open with the phrase "new year, new me", but I wanted to share with you all some of my personal goals for 2018 as well as some blog goals!

I don't typically do New Years resolutions, however I do set goals for myself that I try to keep throughout the year. Sometimes I am really great at accomplishing them and other times, like most people I forget.


- Workout Better
I actually workout a lot, however I would like to 'workout better'. So what does this mean? Instead of my typical run or 30/hr on the elliptical, I would like to set fitness goals. To me this would be increasing my stamina and really pushing myself. I also want to gain more muscle and push myself with weights.

 -Be More Positive
One of my best friends made a comment that I absolutely loved. She said 'holding onto anger is just too much work.' I loved this because I think about all the times I was frustrated about a grade or a silly disagreement and how much work it was. Why put all that energy into negativity when it could be spent constructively or helping someone.

-Make More Time
 A lot of times, especially during the semester, I forget to make time for the things I love. I want to make time to read more books and to paint more.

-More Outfit Posts
My big blog goals are more outfit posts and more posts on Instagram! I have so much fun taking them and want to set aside more time to share with you all!

I hope you all enjoyed this and I would love to hear some of your 2018 goals! Let me know in the comments or email me with any questions!
