St. Croix: Adidas Bikini

One of the benefits of pretty much building Amber’s blog, is knowing all her passwords, having administrative access to all content as well as the ability to make changes. After all, we are husband and wife so there should be no secrets:) Speaking of no secrets, Amber is keeping one from you. She would never advertise this, and she’s asleep right now so there is nothing she can do about it, but today is her her birthday, which is why we are in St Croix! So I just thought you all should know…

Happy birthday sweetheart! You’re the love of my life! I hope you have the best day! I’m so glad that even when you’re 100, I’ll be spending your birthdays with you! Love you!

Your husband,
David

SWIMSUIT: Revolve Clothing OR in a different color at Net a Porter  / HAT: F21

I am not sure how I was late in the game in finding out about Revolve Clothing.. but it has become my #1 new favorite store. I got this Adidas by Stella McCartney bikini from there and I am in love with it. It is good to have for sportier things you do (or just for the beach in general!) But I got it for when we go kayaking, hiking to waterfalls, fishing, and things like that since it is basically a sports bra you can swim in!

Our second day in St. Croix we woke up early and decided to go find these tide pools we heard were here on the island. We find out where to start the hike and we read it was a 45 min hike. We start hiking…. and hiking… and hiking. After about an hour of hiking up hill in the jungle we realize we have missed something. So we head back down and are almost back to are car and we see a sign.. its literally after 20 steps of starting the hike and its hidden on the right side and leads into even thicker jungle with signs for the tide pools- So we start on the right path and after about two miles it T’s off and you can go right or left… we decided to go right and that was a BAD idea. I am talking we were walking through literal jungle.. vines, endless trees, moss, cob webs, who knows what animals, the whole bit. We got to a point where we could see the tide pools but we were at a cliff and it was almost straight up and down and SO muddy. We decided to go for it and I slid down the entire way on my butt, scratching my arms on tree stumps and rocks the entire way down. I thought I was going to die!!! But we finally made it and it was worth it.

The water here is so blue and everything is SO green! I didn’t boost contrast or brighten or put filters on any of these photos- everything is just that colorful!

Anyways- love you guys and have a fun day!!!

    Dude. When Brandon and I went to Fiji in March we had a similar experience hiking to a natural water slide. The locals assured us it was “10 minutes ahead”; LIES! I thought I was going to fall to my death. I battled so much mud, branches and twigs, flies, webs, sticks and stones…but it was all worth it!

    Brandon and I haven’t been to St. Croix, but we’re going to Portugal (the Azores islands) for three weeks in June and we’re excited! I just got done checking out some of the places we’ll see and I’m stoked!

Just thought I would let you know how much I love it and look forward to checking it regularly….Anyway, I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday!

    P.S. You are stunning! I dont want that to sound creepy or anything but it feels good when people express to me their thoughts on how pretty or beautiful they think I am….I mean who doesnt it make feel good right?

    Hello!

    Happy Birthday!! I started following your blog at the beginning of this year and it inspired me (along with the support of my friends) to start one as well – obvi nowhere near as amazing as yours or some of the other blogs I follow. But I love yours because its about your life and what you care about – and so real!!

    Thanks again and HAPPY BIRTHDAY (which I hope is not weird because you don’t know me)
    Have an amazing time in St. Croix!!

    With joy,
    Alexis

    Happy belated birthday Amber! You look so fabulous in that bikini, I just might have to shell out for my own!

  30. joiw May 26, 2013 at 11:23 pm Permalink

    Hey girl! You look great. So I found this suit in a different color on sale online. Only I have NO idea what size I should get. I’m usually small or medium. So do these run big or small or pretty true to size???

    • amber May 27, 2013 at 10:37 pm Permalink

      I got it in a size small for the bottoms and extra small for the top but only because small wasnt available!! I would have gotten small for both!

  31. Haley June 2, 2013 at 9:37 am Permalink

    LOVE that suit and your pics are so cute…but how do you wear your extensions in the water all day?! That would drive me crazy!

    • amber June 4, 2013 at 7:41 am Permalink

      Thanks girl!!! And I only wear one row at the very bottom and honestly I cant even tell its in there!! I dont know if its because I have worn extensions for so long or what but they dont bug me at all!

  32. Jessica June 13, 2013 at 2:19 pm Permalink

    Hey Amber!
    I can’t find this hat on Forever 21. Do you know where else I can find it? Or a similar one? Thanks in advance, I love your blog :)
    -Jessica
    P.s. How old are you now?! :D

    • amber June 13, 2013 at 7:02 pm Permalink

      I actually have looked for it online and cannot find it either! I will keep an eye out for any other stores I see it in!! And I am 23 now!! :)

  33. Kelsey March 14, 2014 at 2:03 pm Permalink

    Hello!

    I’ve been a long time fan and follower of your blog and your Instagram page. I am and have been obsessed with this swimsuit for months now and I was wondering if you know of any websites that are still selling it? I know that it was from last years line but I didn’t know if there were outlet stores that maybe had ones that didn’t sell? I am going to Italy this summer for study abroad and would LOVE to have a swimsuit like this that I could actually move around in without it falling down!

    Any help or advice you could give me would be insanely helpful!
