Style Muse: Peonies, Peonies, Peonies!

Hey guys, I need to work from home today because my peonies are about to blossom and I want to be here to witness it and spend time with them. See ya tomorrow! — Amelia

That is an actual email I recently sent to the staff, explaining why I would be working from home that day. (Yes, I am very lucky to be able to work from home at all, let alone because I want to spend time with cut flowers. I appreciate this fact every day.) For about six wonderful weeks in May and June, peonies GIVE ME LIFE. I spend an embarrassing amount of money on them, but considering I decline invitations to go out in favor of quality time with those blooms, I think they’re worth it.

There are soooooo many varieties of peonies, that I decided to choose five of my fave pink and red varieties as inspiration for this style gallery. Was this really just an excuse for me to stare at peony pictures for the last few hours? Sure. But can you blame me?

Home Inspiration: 11 Colorful End Tables

I don’t know about you, but my bedside tables are boring.  Theose cheap Ikea tables were a great find six years ago, but after updating my bedside lamps, I find them depressing. These colorful beside tables put a much-needed smile on my face. Who knows, maybe all my end tables need is a fresh coat of paint…

This Alexander Wang eyelet suit costs hundreds more than my wedding dress! White eyelet never goes out of style, but there is no way in hell I would spend $1,000+ on a white suit. I’d have to wear a plastic poncho to protect the damn outfit from THE WORLD! I saw “Can’t Buy Me Love”! (Okay, so that was white leather, but still.) I’m getting anxiety just thinking about it. This eyelet tank and pencil skirt from Ann Taylor is 75 percent cheaper, making it a safer (on your wallet) bet for your summer functions.
