Outfit :: Neon Stripes


*Today is the last day for the Stella and Dot Trunk Show! Click here *
A couple of weeks ago, Shopbevel, sent me the most amazing rhinestone drop earrings.
I love how they are simple, yet make that necessary statement. Most rhinestone drop earrings
are heavy and can become quite a nuisance during a night out, but these would never
be described as such. They are just perfect. I'm already shopping the site for more
statement pieces to add to my collection.  
You can find this, this, and this on my wishlist at the moment... oh. my.

I'm Still Here


1. I promise I am still here.
2. I promise to have an outfit post before the end of the week.
3. I also promised myself not to push it.

It's been a crazy week at work with meetings and yearly evaluations going on. 
Every afternoon when I shut down my computer and leave work, I have all 
intentions of going home and blogging after I finish at the gym, run a few errands,
make my lunch, and outfit plan for the next day. {Yes, I'm Type A}
 However, after all that is done I'm simply pooped 
{and watching The Bachelor wins over blogging}. 

So, after a few days off... I have caught up on my sleep and I'm getting back into the
swing of things. Thanks for hanging in there! Happy Hump Day!

Don't forget- Tomorrow's the last day to qualify for the

Outfit :: Layers





I wore this a little while ago, but never got around to posting the pictures. The weather lately
has been so unpredictable. One day it's FRReezing and one day it looks like spring is truly 
around the corner. This is exactly how I've been dressing- layers, layers, layers.

This week has been a whirlwind. Short weeks are always that way. Seems like 
one day is rolling into another with errands, appointments, and driving Phipps to the
vet for check-ups once a week. {Side note: She is seeing an oncologist weekly, who placed her
 on some medications to help her. I could not be more thankful for the vets at GVS that make 
sure she still wags her tail nub and jumps down from her cozy bed to greet me when 
I come home.} A former student of mine and her amazing mom sent Phipps the most
adorable care package this week from Le Bon Appetit. Phipps now has a new bed, squeaky toys, 
yummy goodies, and a 'livestrong similar' collar to wear- proceeds benefit cancer research 
for our four-legged buddies. I am extremely grateful for such wonderful people in 
my life who go out of their way to make me smile.

On another note, it's Thursday... which means tomorrow is Friday!!!
Another week down and a fun weekend ahead. Can. not. wait.

Don't forget about my online Stella & Dot Trunk Show ending Feb. 28th.
Check it out here for more details. Don't miss out on the chance to win
a piece from the new spring line!

Super Sale

Did any of you take advantage of yesterday's President's Day sales?
Unlike a lot of teachers, I had to work. We had a day full of workshops.
Luckily, I was able to sneak some iPhone shopping in during breaks to snag
a few things from J. Crew's 40% off sale + free shipping. It gets me every single time.

Colorblock Striped Tee // Kelly Striped Sleep Shirt {similar} // Nautical Striped Sweatshirt //

Just a few things I scooped up and a few on my wish list. I'm seeing a trend
with stripes. They're just so basic + easy for mixing prints.

Happy Heart Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!
Maybe today I'll forgive the rude lady that knowingly threw her candy wrapper
on the ground for someone else to pick up yesterday at Walgreens and I'll
decide to exude patience and love. Good 'ol St. Valentine would approve if I did!


I'll be spending my day calming the excitement of 23 first graders who have been stuffing
decorated Valentine bags for the past week. Finally, the truth will come out on who's cute in the class!
Seeing the homemade love notes and store bought Superman, Hello Kitty, and Charlie Brown 
candy cards being passed around is enough to make me smile. It's like I never grew up!

Here's what I've been up to lately, via Instagram.
                    The Girl Scouts are back in town... and unfortunately my Thin Mints are becoming a meal replacement. 
Banana pancakes on a Saturday are THE best!
Spotted! :: Phipps and I were pinned on Pinterest by C. Wonder on their Pooch Pins board!

The NE gets snow, Atlanta gets inches of rain. The duck boots definitely made their appearance this week.

Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!
~Hope your day of love is extraspecial~

Outfit Planning :: Spring Thoughts

The weather is still chilly outside, but with all of the images floating around
the web from NYFW I'm craving more color. Here's to making what I currently
have in my closet work for cooler temps while foreshadowing into those spring brights!

Outfit Planning :: Pim + Larkin


I love when I scour through all of Olivia Palermo's picks on Piperlime.
This Pim + Larkin dress will be perfect when the weather warms up a bit and we transition into
spring. Although with all of the snowstorms across the country now, I'm sure simply staying
warm is a priority for most.

Off to run a few errands and make the most of this Saturday!

Outfit :: BOAW Bissonnet

As promised in this post, I'm back to show off my new jewels c/o Birds On A Wire.
Laura @ Birds On A Wire has some amazing pieces that really add to any outfit- casual
or dressy. I styled the Bissonnet Necklace this week and found myself throwing it on 
with several different outfits. Definite repeat offender! I couldn't help it. It's such a great 
versatile piece and adds the perfect amount of sparkle.

Little Surprises

My best friend just found out she's having a little GIRL! I could not be more excited for her...
{and a little scared for her husband... he's in trouble!} The baby arrives in July, so it's time
to find the perfect, snuggly pieces for the little pea. With my best friend as her momma and 
me as her Aunt Taylor, this little girl is definitely going to be the most spoiled little lady around!
Little Clementine Crown // You Are My Sunshine // It's A Girl //
Ruffle Pacifier Clip // Tickle Monster {adorable tickle hands here!} // If I Were A Zebra //
Polka Dot Sheet Set // Red Polka Dot Bow // Anthro Apron // It's A Small World Socks //
Cub Snuggle Cap // Cordy Roy Hound // Deco Dot Toms

...that's what little girls are made of.
If she's anything like her mom, she'll have an extra dash of spice!
Congrats, Linds!

Trunk Show + Giveaway

Stella and Dot came out with their new spring line a few weeks ago and I am still
adding items to my wish list. I added this, this, and these to my collection last week and
each one of them is on a continuous rotation being worn almost daily. 
The Christina Link Bracelet has been my most favorite purchase by far. 
It's the best bracelet to add to your layering pieces. 
Honestly, it has replaced my J.Crew Pave Link Bracelet.
From now until February 28th, I'll be hosting an online trunk show.  
The best part about it is that one Peach Gingham reader will be able to 
qualify for a free piece from the new spring line!
{Winner will be given a few options to choose from.}
*Give your wish-list to your Valentine and let him qualify you for a free piece!*

Here's the run-down:
1.  Make a purchase through my online trunk show by February 28th at 11:59 PM (EST).
{With each piece you order, is another chance to win! The more you order, the higher your chances.}
2. Follow Peach Gingham on Blog Lovin.
3. Leave a comment below telling me your favorite Stella and Dot piece.

I will notify the winner March 2nd. 
Happy shopping + Good Luck!

Shop :: Birds On A Wire

A few weeks ago I was introduced to Laura and her amazing jewelry pieces at Birds On A Wire.
Many of you have probably already seen some of her pieces on my Instagram here, here, and here.
I'm in love with every piece I own from BOAW. From adding the extra sparkle with this
or making a basic tee pop with this, she has a statement piece for any occasion. 
Lucky for those of you in the Atlanta area, she has a booth at Americas Mart for you to shop.

I love styling all of my new pieces, whether it's a necklace to complete my look
or a simple earring to give that extra touch. 
Say hello to Laura at Birds On A Wire, take a look around + leave a comment
letting me know your favorite piece. Maybe, just maybe, we can arrange a little giveaway soon.
I'll be back on Friday with a styled post featuring one of my favorites from Birds On A Wire.
Happy Tuesday!

Outfit Planning :: Silver + Gold

Like black + brown and navy + black, I am a big fan of mixing colors that used to be isolated from each other. Silver + gold is another one of those combos that I've been drawn to lately. I started with my wrists mixing my gold and silver bracelets, now it's making it's way to other places. With J.Crew's new spring collection, I find myself mixing the two with clothing. I went in to the store this weekend to return this watch {bummer the face was a bit too small for B and it's not as depicted in the picture} and I spotted these pants, a brocade print with hints of sea foam, gold and cream. I had to get out quick before making an impulse buy. After all, I have a 'humongo' vet bill to settle with little Phipps. So, here I am outfit dreaming planning to see if making the investment would be completely worth it in the long run. Leave it to me to walk in for 5 minutes and fall in love with one of the Collection pieces and not something on sale.

Outfit :: Pops of Color

What a great weekend! Got a few errands done, organized the loft, 
spent an evening out with friends, and actually baked a few things. {Shocker} 
I'm definitely ready to start this week off on the right foot. 

I wore my new Stella and Dot Seychelles Chandelier earrings twice this weekend. 
I can already tell that I am really going to enjoy having them.  Funny how you 
hesitate to buy something and it ends up being one of your favorite pieces!
