When we moved here I made a google doc of everything we wanted to do here – hikes, beaches, lookouts, and the list has 78 things on it not including things we had done prior to moving here (and not including food places we want to go to). We haven’t even made a dent in our list, there is just so much to do here.

One of our favorite beaches is Lanikai which is where we took those underwater photos! It’s so beautiful and the water is calm so the kiddos can play and I don’t have to worry. I love this leopard one piece from J. Crew sooo much! Leopard is a classic and they also have it in a bikini. I know I have already said this but I love to pair tee’s over swimsuits. Tie a little knot and I think it looks so cute. And hi, leopard button up — you’re amazing.

Few days have gone by where we haven’t had an acai bowl for either breakfast or lunch or both. So it only seemed appropriate to eat one wearing a berry print swimsuit and matching button up. Matching sets are so fun and I wish I had a matching button up for all of my swimsuits! I also love this tee in the same berry print!

J. Crew has so many good swimsuits and coverups – endless mixing and matching options for your trips coming up! I keep forgetting it is winter elsewhere 😉 come enjoy the sunshine!

*Thanks to J. Crew for sponsoring this post.

  1. Adorable! I’ve been following your blog for years! Just curious, what camera and editing program do y’all use for your photos?

    1. Thank you Lauren!! And I use a Canon 5d mark iv use Lightroom to edit our photos. I love the VSCO presets 🙂

      1. That is an expensive camera! Whoa! I guess it’s worth it -cause your pics are beautiful!

  2. All your beach photos are the best!!!!!! That fort David built is awesome!!! I agree, swimsuits with t-shirts are adorable. It’s functional and plus when it’s warm out that about all you can bear to wear anyways ha. -Katie

    1. Thank you so much!! Luckily Hawaii is never sort of amazing back drops 🙂 Thanks for reading! xo

  3. Can you do a hair tutorial, maybe a video of that braid! I have long thick hair and would love to learn to do it like that for vacations!

  4. Did you have a special underwater camera, or just a waterproof casing for your usual one? Going to Oahu with my family next year & would love to get some shots like that!

  5. Girl, i swear anytime i watch a blog post it gets more and more beautiful, amazing and the content keeps getting more and more professional. I love all your photos and blog posts so much! I hope one day i can have a wonderful family like yours and cuute babies like Rosie and Atticus, and your future kiddos because, of course we alll know they are gonna be soooo adorable as well <3

  6. Loving these pictures! You look so happy Amber, I’m glad you guys are enjoying the island!…Lanikai is my faaavorite beach in Oahu. I can sit there looking at the water and horizon ALL day long. So peaceful. Really enjoying your Hawaii posts 💕💕

  7. These photos are so awesome, and I love the swimsuits! You are totally right about the t-shirt over swimsuits, its such a cute look, I love that orange top you’re wearing. Its going into winter here in Australia and I’m so jealous of all your sunshine pics!

  8. Wow these are SEXY!!!!! loving this side to your pics!!!! But obviously love your family pics too. Get it girl!!!

  9. Where are your sunglasses from? They’re so cute! Obsessed with that one piece too!

  10. Awesome shots. Bucket lists are the best to really soak up a place.! I was wondering if there was a way that you would share your list of to dos from NYC? I know you made a killer bucket list and would love to track down some of the places as I live in NYC but have not explored much.

  11. Hey Amber! Thanks so much for sharing on your blog. I’m wondering if you could do a sunscreen routine. I think you mentioned before you were thinking about doing it. How do you do it for the littles? Too much exposure is really bad. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of her, but Freckled-fox’s husband passed away from skin cancer. http://www.freckled-fox.com/?m=1

    How do you protect yourself and your littles from the sun? Any tips you have would be great! Thanks Xoxo

    1. Hi Kaitlin!!!! We are definitely taking major sun precautions even though Mr. Atticus somehow tans SOOO easily still! I use Skinceuticals physical sunscreen for my face and neck. I use Sun Bum 70 spray for myself and David. I also have this Colorscience powder sunscreen that is waterproof that I take with me everywhere and I use that on the kids too. For the kids I usually use Aveeno sunscreen 🙂

      1. Thanks Amber!! That was super helpful! I really appreciate it. I’ve always struggled with the right sunscreen since my skin is so sensitive. I’m going to checkout the skinceuticals though. Thanks again for sharing 🙂 Xoxo

  12. So lovely! I really love what J.Crew has in store right now!

  13. I absolutely love J. Crew to a point where it is criminal. I swear most of my wardrobe comes from them lol! Love the cheetah one-piece on you, it’s adorable!! You have the best style ever.

  14. Not gonna lie, swimming in the ocean (or any body of water really) makes me suuuper nervous! But you may have me sold on Hawaii…or at least on giving water a try just for the cool pics! Haha 🙂 btw, how’d you get those underwater shots? They’re gorgeous!
    Great post as always!!

  15. Lanikai is my favorite! Will be daydreaming about it on repeat now as we endure endless rain here in Vancouver.

  16. So adorable! I love that the shirt matches the suit <3

  17. Love these suits! I’ve been looking for a cute one piece. But missing you on snapchat. You used to post so much when you were in NYC of you and your adorable kiddos! Hope all is well in sunny Hawaii. Xx

  18. These photos are absolutely stunning! I ordered that t shirt a few days ago, love it paired with the leopard!!

  19. I love how full of joy you always look in your pictures 🙂 Love the swimsuits too!

  20. I love these looks! J.Crew has some fun swimsuits. And I totally agree with you, tee shirts look so cute just thrown over your suit.

    Also, once you have completed the 78 things on your list, let us know which ones you love the most!

    Thanks for sharing.

  21. These looks are sooo good and I didn’t expect them to be J.Crew (and so affordable)! You make everything look so good that I always think they’re designer because you make them look so elegant haha.

    On another note, do you think you can share on Insta-stories, or Snapchat, or even YouTube, how you do that knot in your shirt?? I know it’s probably so easy but every time I try it bunches weird and doesn’t look nearly as cute as yours!! Thanks!

  22. Loving those underwater shots, especially where you’re standing! So cool! Now that it’s warmer, we’re almost breaking our fruit bowl because we’ve been eating through a ton of fruit as well!

  23. Love your swimsuit and photos, so beautiful! That beach is so stunning, I am currently sitting in a few cms of snow and your photos are making me want to hop on a plane and get the heck outta here! xx Rox-Anne, Celebratingthislife.ca

  24. Hey Amber – gorj pics 🙂 has David got a new camera/lens? I’ve noticed some of your recent photos look slightly different to your usual – loving the soft but sharp effects!

  25. Love both swimsuits & ALL of the pictures! Beautiful! I had no clue that J Crew had such cute suits plus FAB prices …wow!! Thank you for sharing that!! Definitely checking out their site already! God Bless! 🙂

  26. I really love your hair in the last few pictures and I love the underwater ones! 😍 You’re so gorgeous!

    1. i agree!!!! so gorgeous! such a mermaid!
