David got me this dress forever ago and I have worn it so much I am shocked I have yet to post it on the blog! I brought it to Europe when we went for six weeks and it was a regular for me. It is just such a simple dress that goes with booties, flats, heels, anything. Unfortunately this exact one is no longer available but below I listed some similar styles!! A plain black midi is always a must!

Hope you guys all had a good weekend! Ours was pretty relaxed, we have been trying more restaurants and food trucks that we haven’t ever been to and it is my new hobby! We are obsessed with the Art City Donut food truck… they have mini donuts that are amazing. And we also love the Pico Norte food truck – they have thee best tacos. If any of you know of any other good ones in Salt Lake tell me! I am trying to try them all before we move!

Have a good day! xx

    So cute! If you haven’t yet, you should go to the Wells Fargo Center downtown on Thursdays during lunch. There’s always 5 or 6 there for food truck Thursday so that’s a good chance to try a few all at once :)

    This is such a perfect look. The classic little black dress is a must and the midi trend is super flattering and fun. Also, loving the boots!

    I am so beyond jealous of those blooms! Spring is very late with its arrival here by the NYC this year. Yesterday I finally spotted some signs, although the cold has not left for the trees to finally open up.
    Looking at you I’m secretly wishing to get pregnant soon. SO cute.

    • amber April 1, 2014 at 5:18 pm Permalink

      Aren’t those blooms so pretty!? Don’t let them fool you though, I am in a dang snow jacket today cause its so cold!! The weather is so off and on here so you aren’t the only one still freezing! :)

      Agreed ASOS rocks for finding affordable pieces! Honestly some of my favorite pieces of clothing are from there! :) And thanks so much girl!

    Also its just a basic ensemble it looks so polished and elegant. A black dress is such a classic and versatile piece. Those blossoms make a beautiful back drop :-)

      Thanks Ani!! Aren’t those blossoms so pretty?!

      Thanks so much!!! And no it is just a random gel nail color I picked out at the salon! Not sure what it is called!

    Love the classic black outfit and those boots are absolutely awesome!!
    The photos are gorgeous too :)


  29. Linda April 4, 2014 at 5:17 pm Permalink

    Stunning photos, Amber! Talking about classic black, a quick question – could you please suggest something for business portraits/photos? You’re someone who’s opinion I’d value the most, honestly :) Like what would you wear? I’m the same age, have the same hair length, +/- the hair color :D , but have no clue what to wear/what make up to do for the best result. Thank you in advance!

    xo from far away Latvia!

    • amber April 8, 2014 at 3:20 pm Permalink

      Thank you Linda!! So for business portraits I would definitely do a black top, shouldn’t matter what pants you wear or anything since it won’t show up in the pic but I would wear a black scoop neck top and IF I wore a necklace I would wear just a simple dainty one or pearl earrings! I would probably wear my hair just down and loose curls, nothing too crazy! And for pictures I always think it is better to wear a little more make up than normal since the camera diminishes make up a bit and you don’t want your eyes or lips or cheek bones to get lost! Also make sure you outline your lips :) (with of course a liner that matches what lip color you are doing!) xoxo

    Thus we became noobs on the water when we purchased
    our 1957 Sea King with a 1964 Johnson motor. With the high temperature
    sensitivity of some perishable goods, it’s easy to understand
    why so many companies rely on vacuum insulated panels such a Thermo – Cor to
    ensure the quality of their products. If you are a foreigner unlikely to return if allowed to leave, you will not
    be able to post a bond.

    Have you ever been ready to start a weight loss program only to put it off another month because it just seems like too much
    work for not enough rewards. Yes, it is certainly possible to lose up to 15 to 30 lbs just in a
    month with use of h – CG diet plan. Drink enough water: Dieters must try to
    drink about 96 ounces of clean water each day
    and even more in summer months.

    They want you to come to the salon on a regular basis so they tell you that you need to get
    a haircut every four to six weeks, but it’s just a way for them to make more money.
    When too much pressure is put on the hair over time it can speed up the hair shedding
    process, resulting in the loss of hairs already in the telogen phase.
    Oils that are perfect for sealing are Olive oil, jojoba oil, safflower oil or castor oil.

  39. Two weeks ago our employer announced that we would be moving our office to a new location; this was great news considering our company had grown in number quite drastically over
    the last year. Numbers of professional packers and movers
    of Delhi also provide reliable and completely safe international
    shifting services. Now we come to the feature that is really what robots
    and robotic vacuum cleaners are all about; apart from atending
    to the routine maintenance you can simply set it to work and forget about
    it. Take them into questions and ask about their services, prices, mode of
    payments, mode of transportation and other facilities.

    The Nissan Altima is a good choice among midsize cars. This 30
    day timeframe can be both good and bad for a seller.
    While away for a longer period, drop the room temperature in 12 -16 degrees of Celsius.
    The services that clients can hire are: packing, loading,
    unloading, rearrangement, unpacking, transportation, storage,
    insurance, warehouses, etc. When you are looking for ways
    to cut costs, consider turning to Business Electricity Prices to get the best rates.
    Time zones, office locations, will no longer be a deciding factor
    in the claims handling process.

    “And I can see you – Your brown skin shining in the sun – You got your hair combed back – Sunglasses on baby”.
    - Before you step out to go sunbathing, ascertain that your skin is clear from any ingredients
    of makeup creams and cologne liquids that would make your skin more disposed
    to sunburn. Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells,
    which means that the tanner will dye the skin which is likely to last for a far longer period
    of time.

    they plainly don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the
    nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing without having side effect ,
    other people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
