My introduction to the brand The Proper Peony came through Instagram. A long time friend had her daughter dressed in the sweetest little dress and I decided that Little Miss needed one too. There was one problem, I couldn’t find it. The Proper Peony is a small but very popular brand. The dresses are hand embroidered and that limits production numbers. Many boutiques only get one size each in each style (if that), and they occasionally have waiting lists for dresses. I eventually located the dress in a The Proper Peony Buy/Sell/Trade group and I paid more than retail. Now we’ve acquired more than 10 The Proper Peony Dresses in an assortment of sizes (not all sizes are available in all styles), I thought I would share a few tips for locating your favorite The Proper Peony Dress. Just a little FYI, this isn’t a sponsored post; I’m just a The Proper Peony enthusiast.

I received complimentary product from Orvis for this review.
I try to maintain a wardrobe that has a small mix of seasonally trendy items, and the rest of my pieces are timeless staples that look great season after season. Many of the items from Orvis Women’s Spring Clothing line will never go out of style. There is an added bonus to buying Orvis clothing: it can withstand several seasons of wear. Here are two of my favorite pieces from the Orvis Women’s Spring line, and I’m sharing a high value Orvis coupon code at the end of this post.
Call me a country girl, but I love a good cowboy flick; when you combine this with a Nicholas Sparks novel, I have a reason to get excited. On April 10, The Longest Ride will hit theaters. The storyline involves two couples who were born decades apart, but who both had to figure out if their love was worth the sacrifice they would have to endure.
Some estimates suggest that nearly 40% of Americans make at least one New Year’s resolution; most of those resolutions are for self-improvement. What if you could make a resolution that would not only improve your life but also improve the lives of those around you, and possibly impact someone halfway around the world? Have you considered pledging to perform 100 “good deeds” in 2015 or purchasing a 100 Good Deeds bracelet? Wear a 100 Good Deeds bracelet as a reminder to keep your resolution to perform 100 good deeds in 2015.
Shoes are like jewelry; they can make or break an outfit. They can spice up even the most casual attire.
A good boot has the ability to accentuate your legs, and make your look taller and leaner. I always stand a little taller when I am wearing one of my favorite pairs of boots.
And don’t forget toe shape! The toe of your boot is equally important. Toe shapes include pointed, square, and round. Pointed toe boots can elongate your legs.
Are boots in your wardrobe? Do you consider them seasonal wear or do you rock your boots year round?
