I am like a little schoolgirl the moment I step foot into this town. I nannied in Annecy for a summer a couple years ago and then last summer David and I went back together and this year I got to go with my mama, sister, and Atticus. It is seriously the most perfect place on earth (in my opinion 🙂 ) and if I could live anywhere I would pick this town a million times over. I keep trying to convince David into us moving there! Ah I just can’t handle its charm!

When you are traveling with a baby you literally get 15% (that is generous) luggage space so I reallly had to plan out what I needed for the 15 days I would be gone. For clothes I brought two pairs of pants, four shirts, a dress, and two sweaters (although I did buy a second dress in Paris!). That is literally all I had room after packing everything for my baby and it would be a nightmare to have to lug around more than one suitcase in addition to the stroller, baby, etc. so I pretty much brought my classic go to’s. These flats are fab because they can be folded up nice and tiny and don’t take up hardly any luggage space. These jeans are some of my absolute favorites because of how tight they stay.. they don’t get all stretched out and weird after being worn so many times and they also go with everything so these were a must bring. And then I pretty much just brought simple tops that could be worn more than once and relied on my hair and small hair accessories to get me by! I LOVE Cara hair accessories like this headband I am wearing and bought a few to take on the trip since they add a little something and are so easy to pack.

Now we are in Barcelona and we are kind of laying low and relaxing a bit. It has been a BLAST here in Europe but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t ready to get home and rest in my own home (we just got a new mattress and I keep dreaming of it) and see my husband.. I miss him wayyy too much!

  1. I love your photos…this place looks so beautiful you have inspired me to go there someday!!!

    Now that you are in Barcelona you need to go to the cathedral Santa Maria Del Mar. ITs so gorgeous and not so obvious. It especially means a lot to me as this is where my husband and I got married!!!

  2. i have literally been following your blog so long that i remember when you nannied over there! ever since then annecy has been high at the top of my must-visit list!

    when we went over to europe earlier this year i told my husband we HAD to go and he actually considered it but it was going to be too far to travel there from where we were in italy so we decided to stay closer to use our time more efficiently. but i will make it there one day!

  3. Your photos are beautiful and I’m sure you will cherish them always! I would love if you would share some tips on itineraries for you Europe trips!?

  4. I love everything about this post! The town, the outfit simplicity, and your handsome babe! But I have to ask! How did you score the nanny job there? I’m a college student and I always thought that would be so neat to do over summer.

  5. Hi Amber, my name is Aline and I found your blog via Instagran, I’m loving everything I see, I live in Brazil and I have a baby of four months and I’m learning a lot from his style, which is very current and at the same time very easy to follow because it has parts that are easy to find, and I like your style too because I see that it is a noble and decent woman, while trendy !!! A big hug!

  6. Hang in there! I just did a quick trip to Italy with my mom and sister and boy I missed my husband like crazy. It’s insane how I just wanted him to enjoy it all with me. Share all the new finds and beautiful places. But it’s good to miss each other 😉 once in awhile.
    This little town…ah it’s on my MUST list when I go back to Frace. That decision was made when I saw last time you and David visited. Looks incredible! Baby A is growing quickly!

  7. These are so lovely! So fun seeing you with your beautiful mom and sissy too! Can’t get enough of that chubby little babe of yours. He is the cutest! I’m guessing your hair is easy but I’m having a hard time picturing how it works so hoping you will do a tutorial sometime. Enjoy the rest of your travels <3

  8. I just signed up to be a nanny abroad, and I’m so excited for the opportunity! also I’m uber in love with your zippered jeans!
