Peony For Your Thoughts

I think flowers and rosettes are a simple way to make a clothing item so delicate and feminine looking. Peonies are such a beautiful flower and I love finding items that I have peony looking flowers on them. The Peony gets its name from a Greek myth about Paeon, a student of the Greek god of medicine and healing. This god became so jealous of Paeon that he was going to kill him, but Zeus saved Paeon by turning him into a flower called the Peony.

Look One
Peony for Your Thoughts

This dress is so beautiful and delicate looking with the peonies going around the waist. I wanted to bring out the pink peonies with the pink clutch and the pink nail polish and the goldish sheer layer of the dress with gold accessories.

Look Two
Peony 2

I have mentioned before that I love the color combination of gray and blue and this outfit reminds me why. I love the peonies going down the side of the cardigan and the slight ruffles on the dress. This casual outfit would be great for going out with friends to lunch or for shopping. Plus I love this elephant necklace!

Look For Less
Peony 3

Every piece in this look is $50 or under. I began this look with these stunning black and gold flats. I love the colors and the peonies across the toe. Then I paired them with black jeans and a cream colored ruffly top. I added the black jacket for a little edginess and for a pop of color the red bag and the red nail polish.
