I stocked up on some spring/summer pieces during the Shopbop sale and this dress was one of them! I can tell it will be a favorite of mine this summer and I am excited to wear it post baby :) its getting kind of hard to dress this bump!

Hope you guys all had a good weekend! We had the best weekend in Vegas, it was soo nice to get away. So let me just tell you how rotten my dog was being the day before we left. I have been trying to get better at cooking so I started doing a weekly meal plan and cooking dinner every night which is a big deal for me because I am not really a good cook…. so one day I spend forever making these raspberry sticky buns from scratch for dessert… I know it shouldn’t have taken as long as it took me but I have to literally read directions a million times otherwise I mess it up so it took me forever. So I make them and we have dinner and save them for after the gym. David and I get back from the gym and see the foil that was on them on the ground…. so we go over and look and Chauncey had gotten up on the table somehow and devoured every last one! I was so sad. Which probably sounds ridiculous but I am sensitive when it comes to my cooking you guys! Haha so anyways, I get over that because who can resist puppy dog eyes, and we go to bed. Then in the morning I wake up (David had left a couple hours ago for work, I like to sleep in :) ) and I go out to the family room to see our dog EATING my brand new, not even tried on yet, Loeffler Randall sandals. Instant tears came and I was so sad because I hate when dumb things like that happen with money and its just wasted for no reason.. and those were expensive shoes that I truly wasn’t even planning on keeping since I had buyers remorse. So needless to day that was not a good day for me. It was also followed by David and I going to Cafe Rio and I wore this dress.. beforehand I thought, “I always spill, maybe I should change.” And I didn’t because I told myself I would be really careful with my new dress. Well, I had just done a spray tan and spill my water cup on my lap…. and in case you didn’t know, water + spray tan = red clothes. Like bright red. Luckily, it came out or else I really wouldn’t have been too happy haha :)

Hope you all have a good Monday!!! xoxo

This sweater is another favorite color combo of mine (blush pink just goes so good with anything!) and I also have a slight obsession with anything Jenni Kayne. Her pieces are so fab and are all made so well.

I wore this fishtail combo a lonnng while back and finally made a tutorial on it! I was sort of just experimenting with braids one night at Fashion Week in 2012 and randomly came up but it really does give your fishtail an extra little something so if you want to learn a new little trick then watch! And if you recreate it, be sure to tag me in your insta (@amberfillerup) I love to see your pics! Anyways, hope you enjoy and be sure to switch to HD for better quality! :) (watch, here, or scroll down)

I am currently dying over yellow and blush together – its the perfect color combo and so great for Spring. I was scouring Pinterest yesterday and came across this old J. Crew look and then fell in love. I mean, with the red-orange lip? Its so good. Just love it.

Here are some more yellow and blush pieces to enjoy…

Today is the second part of my ‘take five’ project with REISS! Of course I had to include getting fresh flowers because what is better than going and picking out pretty flowers and having them on your desk or kitchen table for the week?? Honestly it is the best thing and makes my days a little brighter.

Hope you guys are all having a good week! I cannot wait for the weekend because David and I are headed to Vegas to see the Jerry Seinfeld show.. Seinfeld is on at our house daily and my husband can quote every line to every episode so it will be fun to see him and get some sun while we are at it.

Sending my love! xx

Today I am doing a post with REISS to show you how I like to take five! This is part 1 and I am starting with one of my favorite food places I lovvve to go to, The Rose Establishment! They have the best cookies, tea, treats, sandwiches, just so many yummy things and it doesn’t hurt that it is all pretty to look at too. I love what Olivia Palermo said, “I think life is about falling in love with the right person, shopping, eating your favorite decadent desserts, and traveling.” … could not agree more, OP! Those are all of my favorite things summed up into one. So to take five I usually start with the treats, preferably I would be with my husband but that day he was working :) but luckily I had my girl Tessa with me.

Check back tomorrow to see part 2! :)

PS My sister in law’s nephew was featured in a super inspiring article, here. He is 16 months old and was born with tracheomalacia and has been in the hospital the whole 16 months.. he has been through so much and his parents, Natalie and Jake are so inspiring and positive and their story is a total miracle! So if you want to check it out, read it here!
