SWEATER: Maje (similar here and here both under $25) // JEANS: Hudson (old, similar here and here) // SUNGLASSES: Gentle Monster // LIPSTICK: Bite Beauty ‘Plum Rose’ // FLATS: Valentino // BAG: Fendi via Fashionphile

Well clearly I couldn’t have picked a worse day to shoot this outfit ha! I was feeling like such a weirdo walking around in Valentino flats in the snow… although the snow was very pretty. But I wanted to shoot a few of the outfits I wore recently before we leave town! This was a favorite of mine because I love slouchy sweaters. I got this one in store so its not available online but I listed some similar ones above!

We have had a very low key week. I went to some of my favorite shows for Fashion Week but it gets tiring going to a show then running home to nurse – off to another show – run home to nurse etc. so I eventually just stayed home (which I prefer anyways). We are wrapping up all of our errands today and getting ready to leave town and I am SO excited. Its been so so cold here! Especially over the weekend, it was honestly too cold to leave the house. We have been eating really healthy this last week in hopes to shed a few lbs before getting in swimsuits haha and eating no sweets for this long has been soo hard – I had a dream last night that I was eating a giant sundae with ice cream and brownies and literally any dessert you can think of as a topping and then David walked in and caught me .. clearly I am dying for some sweets! A few more days and then I get a piña colada 😉 virgin obviously.

XO have a good day!

    I wrote to you on Intergram, you probably didn’t see it, I know you get a lot of comments 🙂
    I was just wondering, how do you keep your teeth så beautifully white? Are you still only using banana peel? Or can I please know your secret? 😀

  13. Amber I love you as a person I love your videos and there’s something about your voice that I just LOVE SO FREAKING MUCH! Love you!!! ❤️❤️❤️

  14. You’re just the cutest mama! You are blushing in this blush sweater 😉 regardless of the weather, or the outfit, you can pull off anything! You make me want to move to NYC and start a family 🙂

  15. That is the loveliest sweater! I love the knit and the pale pink color! Too bad it’s like 90 degrees here in Southern California… I miss wearing winter knits but I guess I should enjoy this beach weather huh? Sometimes it’ll be warm and rainy here so flip flops in the rain is the norm AND it makes sense haha.

    1. I am so happy you like it!! Thanks so much!! 🙂 And yes!! Enjoy the beach weather, it never gets old! xo

  16. I love this post!! As much as I love all your daily living family posts (they are seriously the sweetest) I’ve missed your more fashion-esque posts!! You look amazing have a good vacation!!

  17. Love the lip color, did you use anything in combo with it? It looks more matt or maybe toned down than most of the Bite colors.

    1. Thanks so much!! I am glad you like it 🙂 And I didn’t, the color may look a bit off because of the photo filters used.

  18. You look gorgeous! In love your hair! But I have too much hair to make that work 🙁 Really too much. Any advice?

    Xxx

    1. Thank you love!! 🙂 And no way?! That is definitely a good problem to have ha! Have you ever tried getting it thinned out?!

  19. Loved the look. But you may have frozen while taking that pics! Although they look amazaing (as always). I was wondering if you and David vlogged in Utah? Xoxo and have a nice and safe trip! xx

    1. Thanks so much doll!! You are too kind 🙂 And we didn’t!! We will be vlogging in Mexico though!! xo

  20. You’re so classy, I love it! Very beautiful, I have a sweater just like this and I love it super comfy especially with cold weather.

    chanceofserendipity.com

    1. I am glad you like them even though I didn’t wear them appropriately for the weather haha 😉 xo

  21. Stunning! Love the look!! Have a great vacation looking forward to seeing pictures! 🙂

  22. $995 Valentino’s?? What I wouldn’t give to be you. I’m only 14, but I hope to be like you someday. Do you buy all the clothes that you blog about?

    1. Yikes I know!! They are definitely investment shoes 😉 Thanks for the sweet comment! And I buy a lot of my own items but am also gifted some as well! xo

  23. I think you look just wonderful in the snow hehe! I love that sweater it look so comfy and cozy and your shoes are perfect! you are just the most perfect person amber and you are by far my favourite blogger and I really look up to you!

    1. Aww thank you doll!! That is so nice of you!! Thanks for always making my day with lovely comments! xo

  24. I love the jumper 🙂 This post makes me look forward to Winter in Aus. Last winter I was pregnant and struggled to find any flattering outfits once my belly popped.

    Good work staying healthy over such a cold weekend. Whenever it’s that cold it be such a struggle to not want to just lay around, and eat comfort food!

    1. Thanks so much!! I am glad you like the look 🙂 And I agree!! It is hard to go when it is so cold out but we do our best!! xo

  25. Omg I love your outfits! And this is a great color for you! What I like about your blog is that you write in a way that feels like we are talking to each other! Also, you are so sweet to reply most of the comments people leave you! Thank you for that! ❤️ Congrats on being so successful and having a beautiful family! Have a great trip!!

    1. Thank you so much!! You are too kind!! 🙂 I am so glad you follow along!! Thank you for the love and support!! xoxo

    1. David and I run my blog full time which allows us to have a flexible schedule. We love to travel and we are fortunate enough to take our work with us 🙂

  26. Haha you are too cute! Love your sweets dream – my sweet tooth has been my downfall more times than I care to admit… I’m pretty sure every single time I got into trouble when I was growing up had something to do with eating sweets when I wasn’t supposed to, and subsequently lying about it. oh gosh. It’s under control now 😉 but I still go crazy for something decadent every now and then!!
    Also, I love this look! Blush looks amazing on you, and those flats!! <3
    Looking forward to vacation details! Safe travels and have so much fun!! xoxo

    1. Haha that is too funny!! I love it! I am definitely the same way! I go crazy for certain things 😉 Glad I am not the only one! And thank you!! So glad you like the outfit! xoxo

  27. Love this outfit and your hair as always looks SO cute! I hope you guys have a wonderful trip and I am so jealous that you are going someplace warm! As for swimsuits, I love being pregnant for that very reason of not really having to worry about it hehe! You look amazing though so you have nothing to worry about.

  35. http://stephanieparsleyphoto.com/2016/02/erin-jacob/#

    Please check out this link. We used your wedding pictures as inspiration. We loved them so much! I saw your pictures on Pinterest and then found your blog and fell in love with the look you had! Thank you for sharing your creativity on the Internet for others to see and get inspired! The whole thing was DIY!

  36. Such a cute outfit! The blush looks so pretty against all the darker colors and the snow. Love your hair, as always! Yay for getting out of town and getting away from the cold. It’s been crazy warm here in California.

  37. I feel like you should do my hair every morning. You always have the cutest styles! I’m much better at makeup so most of the time my hair is straight down or up in a mess bun!

  38. You are just the prettiest ever! I love this color palette on you. And good for you eating so healthy! When I go to long without sweets I dream about the same things 😉 Enjoy your pina colada, lady, you deserve it!

  39. Love this look. It was so cold this weekend, glad you stayed in doors. We are getting ready to go to Disney next week and I am planning on Vlogging (first time for us vlogging) and first time at Disney for Lucas & my husband, so exciting.

    I just put a nursery tour of our son’s room – http://www.fashionworthknowing.com/nursery-tour/

    Enjoy your vacation. Glad you will be somewhere warm!

    1. Thank you Nicolette!! 🙂 And how fun!! I am so excited for you!! Enjoy it!! And oh my goodness cutest nursery ever!! LOVE it! Thanks for sharing! xoxo

  40. Cozy sweater! I hope you do an updated post on what your healthy meals looked like this week!

    1. No! But me and David were just saying how we want to do a post on some of our favorites that we meal planned this week! One of them was spaghetti squash and another was zucchini made with an inspiralizer! They were both delish so when we are back from our trip we will do a little post on some of our favorites! Especially since summer is coming 😉

  41. I was just walking down town Chicago and saw those flats! I think I am going to go back and grab a pair!

  42. Omg Amber, these are beautiful!! These are definitely my favorite photos so far 🙂 That blush sweater and darker pink lip are perfect.. And your hair?! LOVE <3

    1. Stop it!! You are too cute!! Thank you so much gorgeous!! That means a lot coming from you! xo

  43. hahaha your dream has officially made me crave a big sundae with brownies and hot fudge!! Sounds sooooo good!!! You look so pretty and I am ALWAYS one to wear the wrong shoes by accident, like I always seem to wear my canvas toms when it’s raining haha TERRIBLE combo!! Have sooo much fun on your vacation and ever since I went to Mexico last May, I crave a pina colada at LEAST twice a week. Try a Mimi vice!!! It is Pina colada MIXED with strawberry daiquiri! It is sooo freaking good!!

    xo

    1. Haha!! Too funny!! I am obviously obsessed with treats 😉 And aww thank you!! I am glad you like the look!! Glad I am not the only one who wears the wrong shoes at the wrong time haha! And thank you!! We are excited for endless Pina Coladas!!

  44. Love all your outfits!! I notice you wear a lot of flats which I LOVE. Being tall myself I don’t especially like being over 6 feet tall every time I wear heels. Do you have any advice on how to dress up an outfit while avoiding heels? Just curious. Love your blog congratulations on all your blessings this new year!

    1. Thank you pretty girl!! And YES! I love my flats 🙂 And personally, I like how I feel in heels but sometimes flats are just more practical! I just make sure I have the right accessories (handbag, jewelry, etc.) and then I feel dressed up enough. Thanks again for the sweet comment!! xo

  45. I love the snow in these shots!! I totally get what you mean, my hubs surprised me with tickets to costa rica for my bday so we have been eating super healthy with no treats either KILL ME NOW!!! I have the biggest sweet tooth i cant wait to go crazy at the bakeries! LOL Have fun on your trip babe!

    1. Thank you Jenessa!! 🙂 I am glad you like the pics! And no way?! How fun is that!! When is your birthday?! And thank you!! We are looking forward to a great week! xo

  46. Amber,
    I follow your blog/Instagram/YouTube and you and your husband seem so down-to-earth and humble. Y’all really inspire me to live life to the fullest! I wish nothing but the best for you and your family. God bless you all!

    1. Thank you SO much for following along 🙂 It means so much to me!! And thank you for the kind words!! xo

  47. Even though it was cold your outfit was still amazing!
    Not eating treats must be really hard, but it’s will be worth it in the end.
    Where are you guys going? Well wherever it is I hope you have a great time!!!

  48. These sunnies, I love them!! I’ve been all about chunky sweaters lately. Since we are in Florida I got a total of maybe a month to wear all my winter clothes hah! I hope you guys are going far, far away from the snow and that the 4 of you have so much fun. Can’t wait for pictures!

    1. Thanks so much Annie!! 🙂 And haha yeah no sweater weather over there!! I am definitely jealous of the sunny weather you are having though!! xo

  49. Well, you can be happy about how these photos turned out! They’re absolutely amazing! Love the look and the frozen-like lip color 🙂 I knew I was gonna love it when I saw the headline text 🙂 Have a nice day!

    1. Yes definitely!! Thanks so much!! 🙂 I am happy you like the look! Have a fab day too!! xo

    1. Haha thank you!! I need all the well wishes I can get 😉 And yeah it was a major oops moment ha!

  50. I LOVE those flats, but I’d be so afraid of ruining them in the snow! We just got 49cm of snow yesterday (a record!!) so I’m so jealous you can wear the flats without drowning in the snow right now. A pina colada sounds so good right now (and a non-virgin one for me, actually hahah).

    1. Thank you!! And ahh I know! It was definitely an oops moment afterwards haha 😉 Thanks for the comment love!

  51. Gorgeous as always Amber! I love slouchy sweaters but here in New Mexico our weather has been in the mid 70’s so no more slouchy sweaters for me 🙁 Anyway sending you lots of love! <3

    1. Thank you beautiful!! That is too kind of you 🙂 And wow! So warm already!! We are headed to Cancun so we will get to enjoy some warmer weather too! xo

  52. Love the outfit! On days like this, does David take most of the pictures? Or do you have a go to photographer that you use?
    ~ ccaseyphotography.com ~

    1. Thank you so much!! 🙂 And yes, David takes most of my pictures and if he doesn’t, I link the photographer’s name.

  53. Oh my goodness you look so beautiful!! I love this look so much!! Where are you headed off too? Hopefully somewhere warm! I’m with you on the sweets, I have a HUGE sweet tooth! P.s. That pina colada sounds right up my alley! xoxo
