COAT: Vince (worth the splurge; similar and less expensive version here andΒ here) // SWEATER: Equipment // JEANS: Citizens of Humanity // SHOES: Adidas // GLASSES: Derek Lam // LIPSTICK: MAC ‘Spice’ liner filled in with MAC ‘Fanfare’ overtop // BACKPACK DIAPER BAG: Nordstrom (LOVE this one) // A’S SWEATER: Zara // A’S SHOES: Converse

My little man is the biggest animal lover – he gets giddy with excitement and does this gasp/loud noise with eyes like, “Mom… TELL ME YOU ARE SEEING THIS TOO!!!” (especially to dogs, squirrels, and goats) so needless to say we have been going to the zoo quite a bit. He absolutely loves just walking around from animal to animal and looking with all the other kids. I wish we had started taking him sooner but I dont know for some reason I forgot a zoo existed until I saw something online that reminded me (silly, I know, who forgets about taking their kid to the zoo?) but anyways better late than never and we are making up for lost time and he has been loving it.

The weather in New York has been so off and on – I can’t keep up with it! One day it is puffer jacket cold and the next it is short sleeve warm so I never know how to get us dressed in the morning.. especially since it changes so much as the day goes on. But that day it was pretty chilly and I was SOOO excited to wear my new Vince coat. It is honestly the perfect coat!! I ordered FIVE camel coats to try and see which was my favorite and this one was by far the winner. I saw a girl at the juice store wearing the pink version of the coat (I was wearing the camel one at the time) and we made eye contact and then bonded over wanting the others coat haha! Its so pretty in pink as well!

I hope you all have a good weekend!!! We are going to Tha Blaze Jackolantern thing and we have a couple Halloween parties and a friends baby shower! Those are the fun things at least. We are having a deep clean at our place. I know I just said we were organizing but I swear it never ends once you start. We have cleaned out most of the house but now its onto the closets which is the scariest part! I need to get rid of so many clothes but for some reason have the hardest time parting ways with clothes. I have thought about doing an Instagram sale/giveaway with clothes I dont have room for (I say that because I would probably keep them if I had a bigger closet!) is that something you guys would want me to do?! Anyways let me know, if not I will probably just do a big thrift store run!

  7. I check out your blog daily! I also have a little one, a 15 month old baby boy named Bode. So I love seeing the post of your adventures with your little guy. I love your camel coat, but it is out of my price rage. But I saw you posted a cheaper version of it on another site. Is the site ROMWE a legit site? Do you know if their pieces are made well ? I was just wondering if they are too good to be true. Thank you very much!!!

    1. Aww thank you!! I am so glad you follow along πŸ™‚ And how cute!! I love that name! And yes! It’s legit and their pieces are great. xo

  8. Did you say, “closet sale”? Um, yes, please!!!

  9. Oh my, I would become the world’s biggest internet stalker if you had a sale. Please do!! πŸ™‚ love all your pics- Atticus is just too cute. And you don’t even look pregnant other than the one belly shot. Superwoman πŸ™‚

    1. Ahh I may need to do it πŸ™‚ Thanks for the feedback Angie!! and aww you are too nice!! I appreciate it! xo

  10. Atticus’ expressions in the first few pics!!! Oh my word, they are so adorable! I love his excitement haha! This post reminds me of the many camel coats I keep putting in my online shopping bags, then taking out because I’m too indecisive on which one I want. Sigh… I think I just need to choose!! Love the look here!

  11. I have also been on the hunt for a camel coat! I saw this one in the Nord catalog and love it. I will give it a try. What size did you order? Does it run big or small in the shoulders? I’d love to know which other camel coats you tried too!

  12. I would love an insta sale or any kind of sale! That would be so amazing, I think you have the absolute perfect taste in fashion. I hope you are feeling good today girl, very excited for your family’s new addition!

  13. Yessssss. Hope to get a chance to go into your closet and can have one for myself. Can you imagine your clothes, dress… go straight from America to Vietnam? Haha. I have the similar issue and my solution for unused clothes is to give away for people who are in need. My closet is so well organized after I spent the whole evening on it, normally I just get my dried clothes and throw them in I am so pround of myself haha and even took pictures of before and after!
    I just started my blog and really need some advices!
    Love,

  32. I would totally buy your clothes! You have the cutest fashion and THEE cutest family! ❀️

  33. Please do an Instagram sell/giveaway of your clothes! That would be so awesome. I loved your comment about Atticus’s hands down his pants. My son did the same thing at the age, and I always worried about him. But it is common. Such cute pictures as always.

  34. A clothing giveaway would be amazing! I love your blog and all your clothes and wish I could afford to have the amazing style that you do:)

  35. Yes! It would be so awesome if you did a Insta give away!!! I wish I could afford everything you have (poor college student here!) but I can’t, so this is as close as I can get! Haha it would be much appreciated!

  40. It sounds like you are nesting…getting ready for baby girl! I know you’re so ready and excited for her πŸ™‚ I loved seeing the post about your bedroom and I’m sure the rest of your apartment is just as pretty. I would loveeee if you had an instagram sale!!!! Your clothes are the cutest!

  41. Instagram sale! I know it would add more work to your already busy schedule but it would be the best Christmas gift ever to your readers! ☺️

  42. you’re fashionista so i’m sure you have a lots a lots of good stuff in your closet. perhaps you can keep them for mixing and matching? although i would definitely love you do a giveaways/sales but i did understand the feeling of parting with your favorite clothes..and it’s sucks! and did i mention i love every photos of yours? atticus is so adorable!

  55. Hey Amber! Hope you and family are well. Would love you to do an Instagram sale but I’m in the UK so I guess I wouldn’t be able to ???????? You always look so nice and I adore your style! Thanks for having this blog – it makes me feel like I always have a friend to catch up with. I’m at university away from home currently and it helps a lot. So thank you – sorry this is kinda deep ???? Love to you and the fam xxx

  56. The hands down the pants!! I could not stop laughing πŸ˜€ oh gosh. And the excitement on his face seeing all those animals — to die for!
    And YES PLEASE on the closet sale/giveaway. I have major closet envy every time I read your blog (so… daily). That would be so fun!

  57. Awww!! He’s so cute all the time! I love all of your animal pics. I definitely understand how that goes, though. Cleaning never stops. You should definitely do an online sale or a poshmark party!

  60. You and Atticus are going to absolutely love the Blaze Jack-o-lantern thing! I went with my parents and our neighbors who have a two-year-old, and we all LOVED IT, especially the my neighbor’s son!

  61. You need to post it!! You would make more for it (than from a thrift store) and we would all have a shot at your amazing finds!

  62. Omg, yes!! Please, please do an instagram sale!! I’ve purchased from another blogger this way and it was really easy. I’ve been hoping you would forever now because I love your clothes and style!

  63. I just gave birth to my son in August, I love reading your posts about Atticus and look forward to the days we can take him to the zoo and places like that. He’s such a joy and I hate how fast he is growing (my son). I love your clothes btw!

  64. I love how you guys are color coordinated in this post! It fall in NY looks magical. I would love to see you do an Instagram clothes giveaway/sale, count me in!
    Love,Heyrosa

  65. Such sweet photos! I love that your little man loves animals, that says so much about his loving personality πŸ™‚

    Would love and instagram sale! 100% would participate!

  66. You and your little man are so adorable. How lucky is he to be loved so unconditionally. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do an Instagram sale – I love all your clothes, but am up to my ears in student loans, so a discounted price would be amazing.

  67. Lovely photos and you belly almost camouflage with the black shirt and coat. And YES I think all readers (me included) would go crazy for your clothes. They are the prettiest and most stylish ever! Please do it! Although I live in Malaysia so I would have to find a way to buying them lol

  68. So adorable! What a cute little guy! A sale or giveaway would be amazing! What a fun way to connect with your followers and maybe give someone the opportunity to pick up an amazing article of clothing in a fun way! Or even, $1 to enter (proceed to charity) πŸ™‚

  69. These pictures are so sweet! Atticus is just a dream and you are such a gorgeous mama. LOVE your coat SOOO much! I think I need it. And YES PLEASE do an Instagram sale for your clothes because I would probably buy all of it myself, haha!

  70. I think you are friggin adorable and I LOVE your family!!!! I follow you on all social media outlets and you are by far my favorite blogger! Can’t wait to see pictures of your new bundle of joy when she finally arrives xoxoxoxoxoxo

  71. you should definitely do an Instagram sale! I love reading your blog and seeing your beautiful family!

  72. Amber,
    Love how you post on your blog many times a week! This is my favorite blog to catch up on. I think you should definitely sell your clothes on instagram! Have a great weekend.

  73. Obsessed with that coat!!! Random question? How do you not get lipstick on your little one? I’ve found that I can only wear lipstick at work, because otherwise I kiss my son like a billion times and I don’t want lipstick all over his face!

  74. You’re seriously the cutest mom ever!! I think the Instagram sale/giveaway is an amazing idea!

  75. I would love if you did an Instagram sale or giveaway! one of the reasons I started following you is cause we are about the same size and height. Knowing how it would fit already would be awesome. Plus I usually can’t pay full price for things cause I just graduated and have a baby so having it discounted would mean I actually can get some without scouring thrift stores or making it myself πŸ™‚

  76. Oh my goodness yes you definitely should do an instagram sale! You have the most incredible wardrobe. Also, I LOLed about the comment about men (of all ages) having their hands down their pants. I guess they want to make sure it’s still there? I’ll ask my boyfriend to confirm haha

  77. Beautiful coat! Another place to sell would be on Poshmark! That might be easier for you to do.

    Is there any way to make the photos on the blog smaller? I’m only asking because sometimes on mobile, the text of your post is hard to read because the pictures load so slowly and keep pushing the text out of the frame. Regardless, I’m always willing to wait for it to load to read the whole post! πŸ™‚

  78. I adore these pics! I think Atticus could be a vet one day, as much as he loves animals πŸ™‚ I would looove to own some of your clothes, however I’m a size Large where you’re a Small…darnit! Maybe you could shed some accessories too.?!?.haha!! I have the same attachment with clothing..I think it’s just a girl thing πŸ™‚ Enjoy your weekend!

  79. YES!! I would love if you could give us away some of your clothing. It would be more like piece of art of inspiration! Amber please have mercy of us! Haha! Love you! God bless you

  80. My 1 year old little dude does the same thing! Boys will be boys! Ha! Would love the Instagram sale/giveaway! I follow another blogger who has a separate account just for selling hers/kids clothes.. Love it!

    1. No way?! So cute!! I bet your little one is adorable πŸ™‚ And thanks for the feedback Kali! xo

  81. We are expecting a baby boy in April, so seeing your photos with Atticus get me so excited to share that same special bond with my little one! I love seeing his reactions and pure joy in all of your photos. And I love that Vince coat!

    HOLY CITY CHIC

  82. Such a beautiful outfit and pictures!! I would love an Instagram giveaway/sale!!!! Hope you have a great weekend! Ps- I have the hardest time parting with clothes too :/

  83. OMG! Please do that sale or give – away! It sound like a prefect thing to do πŸ™‚
    Will be looking forward to that πŸ™‚
    And yes – my boyfriend likes to keep his hands down the pants too, so don’t worry about A πŸ™‚ Just growing into a real men πŸ˜€

  84. Would love an intagram sale/giveaway!!! Good luck cleaning everything out…it is a long and tiring process but you will feel good once it is done πŸ™‚

    1. That’s so true!! We have a major animal lover on our hands πŸ™‚ And thanks!! I hope you have a great day!! xo
