While we were in Paris we stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris and it was amazing. The whole hotel is filled with thousands and thousands of gorgeous fresh flowers in the prettiest displays – it feels like a dream walking through it. I also just love the service you get when you are at any Four Seasons.. Everyone is always sooo nice! I was scouring Paris for a crepe joint that also had strawberries. Don’t get me wrong, I love the classic sugar and lemon or banana and nutella crepe in Paris.. but I am more of a mixed berries + homemade cream sauce + whipped cream + a scoop of ice cream + extra whipped cream kinda gal. That is what I always get here in NYC (looking at you Golden Crepe, my fav) and I was craving it so bad but noooo one had it! Luckily the Four Seasons had my back lol and even brought an entire bowl filled with whipped cream, they take the “extra whipped cream” note seriously.

We took a little trip to Versailles and roamed the gardens at the palace and ate at a restaurant there which ended up being less than average (dont you hate when that happens?) Atticus just walked around, threw rocks, played in mud, popped bubbles (that I luckily remembered to bring), for hours on end. He is really into throwing rocks especially into water so he was having a ball.

I got this Rachel Pally dress for some maternity pics in the hotel that we took and then I planned to change when we went out but the dress is SO COMFY and it looked cute with a sweater over top so I left it! It now has mud and dirt on it, but anytime I wear white I am just asking for it haha ๐Ÿ™‚

Its been good to be home and we have been doing LOTS of park trips in this amazing weather! We love to wake up early and go to the playgrounds right when they open so we are the only ones (we like being selfish and going down the slides over and over and over again – and early bird playground trips mean that the tire swings are open, yay) and then we take Chauncey and Atticus on a lonnng walk around the city and grab juice at Juice Generation on the way. Then we do the same thing in the evening but we go to our favorite field (it has that PERFECT soft green grass and its kind of an area everyone has silently agreed to not let the dogs go “potty” on) and Atticus finds sticks to give Chauncey and then he chases him around and they tackle eachother. Mornings and evenings with this family of mine are what I live for.

    1. I definitely agree!! I love it more and more each time I go!! And thanks so much!! I am so glad you’re following along ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  3. Hi, Amber! I love your pictures!! Could you share what program/ app do you use to edit your pictures? Thanks a lot.
    M.

    1. Thank you so much!! And I use a program called Lightroom as well as an app called VSCO cam for Iphone pics ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

      1. Thank you for the reply, Amber! I’ve heard about Lightroom but never got it on my computer, I guess it’s time:) your pictures are always so atmospheric and romantic!! Beautiful family. Best of luck xo

  4. I follow your blog and IG posts religiously and love especially perusing through your photos. I’m aspiring to be a photographer and so I was hoping you can tell me what camera you use to capture the amazing photos you post and what editing programs/apps you and David use.

    1. Oh my goodness thank you so much!! And we use a canon 5d mark iii camera and to edit pictures we use a program called Lightroom! xo

  5. That dress is stunning on you!
    I have been subscribed for a few months now and my favorite posts are your traveling ones!! Also I can’t get over how you dress Atticus, really excited to see what his baby sister dresses in :))

    1. Thank you so much!! I love the feedback and am so glad you are following along!! xo

      1. I’m referencing the snap chat of a picture of your belly and your little baby girl moving around. Your caption read “So weird, WTF.” Why would you use such a crass expression (even if the abbreviation) at all but especially when talking about your babies movements? You are a better person than that. I have read your blog from years ago. Please don’t let all of this change you.

  6. This hair style is simple yet the best. I really want to know how you have it right!

  7. ugh can you be broke again? lol you were my style guide for F21 and Zara! I’m so lost without your inspiration. Better yet can I just make more? But seriously your style is so gorgeous as always! And you look so gorgeous! I’d actually say even more gorgeous now – motherhood looks so good on you you just seem so happy!

    me: being able to go shopping and not look at price tags”

    1. I am sorry!! I try to post items from all price points now but depending on the brand/company I collaborate with, it can be tricky! But thank you so much Shelby!! You are so sweet!! Love ya!! xo

  8. That dress is so gorgeous!! I adored visiting Versailles when I was last in Paris….I only wish I had your family’s photography skills!

  9. Tres tres belle. Le Versailles est incroyables avec Amber, David, et Atticus!!! Je les adore!

    1. Haha!! It was so delicious! I am craving it now ๐Ÿ˜‰ And I agree!! The gardens were so incredible!

  10. Wow – you must stop yourself. Such an incredibly inappropriate question and obviously none of your business.

    1. Thank you so much Angela!! That is so sweet of you!! And I totally agree, I love the family time ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. New reader.

    Beautiful images taken at the FS. I use to be an employee with them before my daughter was born. They take very good care of their guests, that is for sure. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with them.

    1. Thank you!! And I completely agree, they have amazing customer service, we loved our visit! Thanks so much for following along ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  12. Lovely trip! Did you get a chance to go inside? Once Atticus is a bit older, I think a trip back to learn the history of this place might be worthwhile. You forget the sights at this age and it’s important to take in the cultural history. Versailles is beautiful and rich in historical significance. I hope visitors remember that it’s not just a place to take pretty pictures (although its definitely a PLUS!). Hope you are enjoying France and are soaking up much information and inspiration! I hope you find a petite bijou!

    Love,

    1. Thank you!! And yes, I totally agree, cultural history is so important which is why we take time to visit such amazing places like Versailles ๐Ÿ™‚ We also got to visit a couple museums as well, don’t you worry ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have been to Paris a couple other times and each time, I soak in the culture more and more. Thanks!! xo

  13. You look absolutely gorgeous in that dress, and Versailles looks so beautiful too! And oh my gosh, little Atticus in a little bathrobe just kills me! Oh yeah, I always ask for extra whip cream too… It’s the best part!

    1. Thank you Patricia!! It was so dreamy!! And aww thanks!! He was having a blast in that robe haha!

  14. amber, you look gorgeous! That long sweater is perfect for fall days, but the link doesn’t work. Do you have the link for the Halogen sweater? Thanks!

  15. I am getting a serious itch to go back to France looking through all your recent posts! For the time being, I’ll just have to live vicariously through you (thanks!). I love that maxi dress on you – and the way you styled it down with the sweater is beautiful. xoxo

    1. You definitely should!! France will always be one of my favorite countries to visit! And thank you so much!! I am so glad you like the look ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

    1. Thank you so much!! I am so glad you like the dress! And aww thanks! We had a wonderful time ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. I’m totally a strawberries and whipped cream crepe girl myself! Glad the FS came to your rescue, lol. Looks like a wonderful trip – I want to go there some day. And I always image visiting the gardens of Versailles in a dress (to imagine being a lady of the time ;)), your maxi is perfect (great color on you.)

    1. No way?! Isn’t it the best!! And thanks so much!! We had a great time ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for reading Kim!! xo

  17. Atticus in his bath robe just made my heart melt all the way to my toes! Oh my goodness can he be any cuter?! Another beautiful dress Amber!

    1. Aww you are too sweet!! Thank you so much!! He was loving his robe haha ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Atticus in his little bathrobe has to be the cutest thing I saw today! You look stunning! I believe I was at the same restaurant (the one at Versailles?) and I too was less than impressed.

    1. Aww thank you!! He was so cuddly and cute in it ๐Ÿ™‚ I may have to get him one now haha! And I know! I wish it would have been better ๐Ÿ™ Glad I wasn’t the only one who thought that!

  19. Versailles is so MAGIQUE ! Hope you enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Look so pretty as usual !

    1. Add it to your must-see list!! It’s so dreamy!! Thanks for reading Laura!! xo

  21. hi!! okay so i am completely obsessed with your ponytail…it’s literally what i strive for every single day of my life haha. i’m sure it is relatively simple but is there any way you could possible post a tutorial for it?! or maybe just explain how you did it? I would be so excited. thank you!
    reading about your little family makes me so happy <3

    1. Omg yes I second a vote on this pony tail tutorial!! Haha How do you get that perfect volume I try so hard and it just doesn’t work.

  22. How do you keep your extensions from frizzing up while on vaca? I have 20″ extensions from The Hair Shop here in NY and they are probably the best ones Ive found so far because they dont have any of those pesky horse hairs that other extensions companies ALWAYS sneak in! Anyways Ive been using clip in extensions for years and they always get ugly by the end of the day and i bring a wide tooth comb everywhere to try keeping them looking fresh but I wanna know your secrets or if your having the same issues.

    I dont know how you do all those crazy braids styles with 24″ extensions. I have issues trying to just do 1 simple french braid because the extension hair is not as easy to separate as my real hair is. Then I have to re do the braid in like an hour to keep it looking nice.

    Any extension suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Amber has a blog post called Extensions: 101 that is the most informative article I have EVER read on extensions. She covers everything, from care, shampooing, coloring, cutting, blending, EVERYTHING. At the end of the post she has a video tutorial on how she puts them in and blends them. I tried to copy the link here for you but have been having Apple problems and was unable to make it work. I hope you can find it, believe me it’s worth it to search for it. I bookmarked it for future reference.

      1. Thanks Beth! I know what post your talking about and have read it before. The thing is I already know about how to care for them and how to put them in. I’ve probably gone through 8 or 9 sets in the last 4 years and have had all kinds from $100 ones to the $300 ones and my issue is that they get always tangly/frizzy throughout the day no matter the price point.
        I use RemySoft bluemax protective silicone serum and refresher on which helps a lot to keep them less tangly and last longer but I’m curious about how she keeps her hair looking nice all day playing outside with her baby and going on vacation. I recently got back from Peru and had extensions in for 80% of the trip and let me tell you… there was 85% humidity in Lima and it was my worst hair nightmare ever SO FREAKING FRIZZY!! I kept having to go restyle it every time I went back to the hotel. My hair was a better once we went to Cusco but then had issues again going through the jungle and Machu Picchu. It’s so hard to get nice pictures when your hair won’t corporate so I’m just curious if she has any other tips up her sleeve or if she’s like me and has to comb it out and/or restyle her hair multiple times a day.

      2. I betting when they get to the frizzy, unmanageable point she just does one of her many awesome braids lol.

    2. Hi Amanda!! Thanks so much for your comment. I am sorry you have been having trouble with the frizziness ๐Ÿ™ That’s no fun! Do you wash your hair extensions or use any product on them?

  23. so pretty, amber! your mornings and evenings at the park sound like the perfect way to start and end a day. my baby girl is just 3 months old, but i’m looking forward to the day when she is old enough to run around and go down the slides at the park. thank you for giving us a little glimpse at your life as a mama! xo christine

    1. Thank you so much doll!! You will love that play time when she’s a bit older, it’s so fun! Each new age is my favorite as I am sure it is for you! xoxo

    1. Oh good I am not the only one ๐Ÿ˜‰ And thank you so much!! You are too nice!! xo

  27. I LOVE your sweater. I am having my anual sweater obsession and whenever I see a cute one I kinda freak out and need to have it!! Haha (does anyone else do that, or is it just me?) Your morning and evening routines sound so perfect! I love those little daily traditions, for me that’s just taking warm baths and watching Netflix but I mean haha someday they will become a bit more involved. Love these pictures!! Do you guys have anymore trips planned for later this year?
