One last pop of pink and the most comfortable vest you’ll ever wear.

Hi all,

Hope everyone has been having a great week. It’s that rare few weeks in Atlanta when the weather is perfect and you just want to live on the patio. I’ve had some pretty long workdays lately and I know the first thing you want to do at the end of the week to decompress is go enjoy happy hour (or nap ;)). One thing I’ve found is that there a few pieces that can help you take that look from day to night and that is a vest/jacket you can toss on and bright, fun pair of heels.

Check out the links before for this crazy affordable shoes and this great vest that literally be paired with anything. What are your go to pieces? Let us know by leaving a comment!

Tips for Transitioning from Winter to Spring

Spring is quite possibly my favorite season, and one of the most fun ones to dress for. Going from Winter to Spring can be a little difficult with the often unpredictable weather. Chilly mornings turn into warm and sunny days, and you want to be comfortable for both. Dressing for Spring can be tricky, so we are offering a few helpful tips to transition your winter look into spring!

Layers are your friend! This is the number one thing you need to master for taking your wardrobe into spring. Layers help you look pulled together and like you put thought into your outfit {duh, cause you did!}. Layering will help keep you warm during the morning and evenings, and you can always remove an outer piece or scarf when it gets really warm without looking “undone”. Some great pieces are a twill or canvas military jacket, a denim jacket {huge trend for this Spring}, or a vest. Some lightweight scarves are a great addition too. These lighter pieces still add warmth and structure without looking too heavy. Try a denim jacket or vest over a pretty floral dress or a twill military jacket with distressed denim shorts and wedges.

Lighten up! Spring is the best time to switch up your style and try some new things. Experiment with bright colors, prints, and patterns. Florals are always popular for spring, but they are everywhere this year, and it’s easy to find a print that works for you. Lighter and more feminine pieces are a great way to jump into spring. A lightweight blouse, floral print dress, or patterned shorts are all good options.

Accessories are key! One of the easiest ways to brighten up your existing wardrobe and take it in to spring is to liven it up with some fun accessories. This is also a great way to freshen up your look if you are on a budget. A few bright pops of color can really make a huge difference. Brightly hued heels, handbags, and statement necklaces really stand out. So many fun accessories out there; try something new! We linked a few of our favorites below.

Fitness Motivation

workout3workout2workout1

Let’s be real…nothing makes me want to go exercise more than a cute new workout outfit. Well, that and pizza. I partially workout so that I can eat pizza. But exercising makes me feel healthy and helps me clear my mind. It is an important part of my lifestyle and if I go a week without working out I start to feel tired and not like myself. That being said, there are some times I really have to find the motivation to actually go to the gym or go for a run. It’s easy to want to quit when you workout for a couple weeks, feel like you are doing well, but then start to lose motivation. Here are three tips I use to get motivated and to make sure I am on the right track to staying healthy.

  1. It’s not about the scale. There is no magic number that everyone needs to reach. Everyone is different. Instead of focusing on the number on the scale and whether it goes down or not, focus on how you feel. Are your clothes fitting better? Do you feel better and have more energy? Do you notice a change? These are the things to focus on when you are lacking motivation or doubting if your fitness regimen is working. I’m not saying don’t weigh yourself at all, just don’t let that number rule you.
  2. Look at the small picture. Of course, your overall goals are important (and you should definitely set goals) but sometimes it is overwhelming to think about the larger goal. If you feel like you have a long way to go, that could cause you to lose motivation and feel like your goal is insurmountable. Instead of looking at the big picture, for the time being focus on smaller goals you set for yourself. You want to lose 20 lbs? Great. You want to run a 10K? Great. Without smaller goals, those tasks seem pretty big. But if you set yourself smaller goals of “I will workout three times this week” or “I will shave 20 seconds off my mile pace” its seems easier to get there. These add up, and before you know it you will be hitting your goal.
  3. Mix it up. Variety is the spice of life! Doing the same thing all the time can get boring. If you are bored, you are less likely to want to exercise. Switching up your workout is not only good for making your workout interesting, it’s also good for working parts your body that you don’t normally work. Cross-training is so good for you! If you are a runner, try a dance or kickboxing class. Are you a dedicated cycler? Try a Barre class. Weightlifting your thing? Give yoga a try! Mixing it up is a great way to stay interested in your workouts and keep you going.

Tell us your favorite way to stay motivated and stay on track over on Instagram or in the comments below. Hope everyone has a healthy and fun weekend!

Valentine Shopping | Fleece Lined Vest

Hi guys,

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Valentine’s day week and looking forward to the weekend, it starts tomorrow so hope everyone is ready! This is from a couple of days ago when I was doing some Valentine’s day shopping for my mom and my sister… every year we do a ladies brunch or dinner and give each other a cute little gift (make sure you check out our post for cute valentines day gifts for anyone!) The outfit featured in the photos actually came from them this year and the pieces are majorly on sale. The vest is on back order but I’ve found an even cuter similar option on Zulily for $39.99. I’ve linked everything below for easy shopping access 🙂 What are some of your fun Valentine’s ideas? Share it with us and maybe we will feature it, check out Pretty in Peach on instagram.

Crew, similar Here| Earrings Lilly Pulitzer Gold Bows

Sometimes when it’s cold and rainy, you just want to wear something comfy and warm…aka sweats. However, it’s not exactly the best fashion statement. BUT, this is the next best thing. I love my hunter boots and socks for when it’s cold and rainy; they keep your feet completely dry. My socks are fleece inserts made for the Hunter boots but you can wear any cute knee socks with these babies. {Tip: while they are waterproof, they don’t have very much insulation so some warmer socks are necessary!} Layering this vest over a plaid flannel looks so great and is so effortless. I’m digging the olive green color right now, and you would be surprised at how many different colors you can pair with it. Plus, you can transition this vest into the spring over a dress or a simple white tee with a statement necklace; a great versatile piece you can use all year long. I can’t get enough of plaid this Winter, and this shirt comes in several colors as well.

Hope you all are staying dry this weekend in Atlanta!

Let me tell you a little secret: I love stripes. Love them! Ok, so it’s not really a secret, because I wear them all the time. Stripes can be hard to wear sometimes, but a striped dress is a great piece to try. That’s why we wanted to show two ways to wear a striped dress, because there are endless ways to style! This one is from Target {and for under $20 too!}. I love the darting detail at the waist because it’s slimming, especially with horizontal stripes. It’s made with a thick ponte fabric, which is stretchy and super comfy. I paired my dress with this military vest which I love, and some flats. This is such an easy and casual outfit, but I love it and find myself going back to this stripes and vest combo again and again. my favorite Kendra Scott necklace add a fun pop of color too.

Follow us over on Instagram and let us know your favorite way to style stripes!
