SWIMSUIT

Here I am wearing the color Barefoot Blonde from my hair extension line!! and here is a tutorial I did a while back for this hairstyle!

You have probably seen this spot 1000 times on pinterest and insta but I meeeean – for good reason right? It is such a special little spot! If you ever go you should try to go over a weekend because last year we were there over the weekend and they do firework shows at night – let me tell ya it is magggic! It echos in the cove and its so awesome. The day we took most of these pics, Atticus had been wanting to do paddle boats all day.. but I kinda wanted to wait til the sun wasn’t so harsh because the sand down there gets scorching hot at peak hours and it burns the kids feet because they hate wearing shoes in the sand. Anyways, so we waited and when we finally got down there the boats were done for the day!!! He was so sad! So first thing the next morning we went out there at 8am right when they opened and did the yellow paddle boat just like he wanted! He loved it. Seeing Positano from boat is also a must do because you get to see the entire cove and it is really somethin else. And the PIZZA. The pizza from all the little tiny shops is sooooo good! So simple. I love that they just have delicious homemade crust, delicious sauce and fresh mozzarella! Really that is what I love about eating in Italy – they keep it simple and just have fewer quality ingredients and I love that you can taste each ingredient when eating a dish. I love the food there! Atticus clearly loved the pizza too ๐Ÿ˜‰

This swimsuit is a favorite of mine. I love the fit. And the print! Love a good citrus print. David and I are so excited to have orange and lemon trees in our backyard when our house is done. Fresh OJ is. life.

  1. Thank you for not editing out your stretch marks! You look stunning and it makes me feel better about mine.

  2. Do you get fake tans? Do you get them done at a tanning salon? How do you tan your face? Your face and body match so well. Also are your roots naturally that dark? Or do you dye them darker. I really love the look of your hair right now with the dark roots.

    1. I don’t go to a tanning salon but sometimes I will go get a spray tan or use at-home tanning wipes. I love the Kate Somerville tanning towelettes! I normally don’t tan my face, I just use a foundation to match ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope that helps! Oh and yes, my roots are more my natural color.

  3. Pics are beautiful…..I’m headed there next month. Where did you stay?
    Any reccommendations??

  4. I love the double photo of your son eating a pizza. It feels like you guys thought “he is so cute on this one, and this one and this one and this one… ok, which one should we choose… ok let just put both of them” ahaha. (like when I want to print my son’s photo ahahaha) he is super cute ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Amber, we just had the best pizza in the world that was homemade and the most authentic Italian we’ve had. It’s a homemade sauce and crust from America’s Test Kitchen, and just had basil and mozzarella. Literally the best pizza I’ve ever had. I think to get their recipes though you need to subscribe to the website, or just buy their recipe book like us and you get all of them. We just made a bunch of dough and sauce to freeze so we can have this all the time. ๐Ÿ˜Š Also I’m adding this place to my bucket list!

  12. Amber, these pics are so adorable. Your suit, your hair, the setting, the kiddos, you and David, ugh. All so perfect. LOVE it.

  13. I’m going to Positano in a few weeks! Your blog inspired me to go. Im so excited. Im wondering if you have ever traveled there from Rome by public transit? We are trying to figure out the fastest easiest way to do so…

    1. I live nearby so can answer this one ๐Ÿ™‚ There is no easy way to get to Positano, unfortunately, unless you have a car (and then you will be paying top dollar to park it). There is no train station, for instance, so your options are: training to Naples, taking the Alibus to the port of Naples, and taking a ferry from there. Alternatively, take the train to Sorrento and a local bus. You are looking at a 4 hour trip (one-way) minimum. Keep in mind that train delays are not uncommon, so be flexible.

      1. Had to add to this! We just were in Italy and stayed in Positano. We took the train into Naples and then paid to have a driver take us from Naples to Positano. It was a 50 minute car ride and cost around $100. I’m so glad we didn’t rent our own car and drive those winding roads!!

  14. Ahhhh these photos are pretty much my “dream list” for when we have a family!!! Cannot wait for our family to grow by 1 next year and to travel with our precious little one!! Would love if you would start doing travel vlogs again! Those were so cute!
