Color Lust | Peony

style inspired by peonies in france photography and color pink

Pantone's Linen may take the cake this spring as far as traditionally feminine hues go, but a dab of perfect peony pink is always in style.

There's almost no indulgence I like better than pretty, lingerie-esque sleepwear.  This one by Kate Spade has me smitten.  The simple, straightforward design keeps the ultra girly shades from going over the top frou frou.   
At The Very Top of my Lust-List  |  Stella McCartney's neon pink espadrilles.  What a refreshing take on an old standard!  I can't think of very many things I wouldn't wear these with.  Though, at 315 dollars a pop, I'll be thinking of a way to DIY a similar pair on the cheap. 
Newly Discovered Edible Indulgence  |  Boozy homemade popcicles!  This one is pink cosmo-lemonade.  If you need me this summer, you can find me lounging someplace in the shade with an ice box full of these little babies.  See the recipe here.
