GREEN SUIT: Karla Colletto (listed in UK sizes; also available in pink!) // KIMONO: Aila Blue // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker // ASHLEY’S SUIT: Raising Wild // A’S SWIMSUIT: Molo

More pictures from Mexico! I got this green suit while I was pregnant and when it came in the mail it looked like a suit for a toddler! I quickly realized it was listed in UK sizes ha I always forget to pay attention to that! But I got my right size and was so excited to be able to wear it finally. I love anything neon and especially an 80’s style one piece. We stayed at the Finest Playa Mujeres resort which we absolutely loved. I was glad that it had so much for us to do because I got really freaked out about Zika virus. Dont ask why I looked into it more once we got there but had I looked into it beforehand I probably would have canceled the trip. We had planned to go to Tulum and Playa Del Carmen and the cenotes but I didn’t have a good feeling about it so we just hung around the resort! Luckily I only saw one mosquito the whole trip on the last day and we sprayed with bug spray like crazy. The resort had little catamarans, jet skis, and lots of stuff for us to do so this day the boys played volleyball, we played with A on the beach, David took us all out sailing, and I had the biggest migraine so me and Rosie took a two hour snoozer on the beach. She has acid reflux like I do and I am always so amazed how easy going and happy she is even with her acid reflux! Could you die at her chubby belly?? She is getting rolls like no other and I am thrilled about it. She was spitting up so much because of the reflux that she dropped to 56th percentile and I am hoping at her next appointment she is back up in the 90’s. Judging by that cute belly I think we may be 😉

A lot of you asked about my swimsuits and other pieces so here they all are listed in the order I wore them on insta:

blue and white high neck one piece

floral retro one piece

neon green one piece 

tropical retro one piece 

red strappy two piece

blue short sleeve zip up

rosie’s mermaid onesie  

Have a good weekend!! xo

  1. I was just looking back on some of my favorite posts and remembered how much I love your floral one piece. You are so gorgeous and you have a beatiful family. Best of luck at your new home!! ??

  2. Just the best memories! We are planning a quick fall trip and I was wondering if you would recommend this resort? We will be traveling with 5 adults and our two children (7 months & 2 years).

  3. SUCH a cute suit – and looks like the best time! I’m experiencing acid reflux too 🙁 Did yours begin with pregnancy? And do you still have reflux now?

  4. Seriously, the prettiest family! If you get a chance-what lipstick color are you wearing with the neon green suit? Obsessed!

  5. Omg I love your blog. You have inspired me to want to start a blog. I love the way your blog is set up and everything. Let me just tell you that your family is goals. One day I want to have a family like yours. I hope you keep on doing what your doing and one day I can be like you with my blog.

    1. Thank you so much!! You are so sweet!! Thanks for making my day!! And congrats on starting a blog!! xo

  6. Hey! I’ve been catching glimpse of your sandals and from what I can tell I really like them. Where did you get them???

    1. Wow thank you!! That is seriously too sweet of you!! Thanks so much!! 🙂

  7. Love the red bathing suit! I’m going on a vacay in April and it looks so flattering on your instagram!
    I swore I was done buying more bathing suits, but I may just need to make an exception 🙂

    1. Thanks so much!! That’s so nice of you!! And yay for a vacay!! Have a blast!! xo

  8. Hi!! I just got back from my honeymoon in mexico. We stayed in Cancun, we went to tulum and xel-ha and the cenotes….there wasn’t a single mosquito anywhere we went!! It was all truly amazing and I’m glad I didn’t let the hype of the media scare me because they were amazing memories. I would like to go back and stay at Isla Mujeres, our cenote tour guide said it was the best place to stay. The water looks so calm, the water at cancun last week was really rough most of the time and we didn’t get to go in it much.

    1. How fun!! I hope you had a blast!! 🙂 And that is good to hear!! I probably would have gone if I didn’t have kids but of course all the Zika talk made me paranoid!

  9. I am Constantly checking your blog for fashion and hair inspo! You inspire so many of my looks! You look amazing!

  10. Amber!! Im going to mexico in two months and usually go tanning before then so i have a nice base so i dont burn. Well i just started this acne medicine that doesnt allow tanning and is very sensitive to the sun so ill have to use a lot of sun screen while im there. Im kinda concerned about how white ill be and was wondering if you had any tanning lotions you love that do the job perfectly or just what your tips are!!

    1. Hi Tori!! I love using Kate Somerville tanning towelettes!! They are so easy to apply! You can get them at Nordstrom or Sephora!! xo

  11. I love your blog! Your posts are always so cute and I constantly use it as inspiration for mine 🙂

  12. Wow! I can’t believe you had a baby a couple of months ago. You look amazing! My daughter is 6 months old now and I am hoping to get back in shape. Hoping breastfeeding will speed things up. Beautiful pictures/family ????

    1. You are seriously too nice!! Thanks so much mama!! I still have work to do though I promise 😉 Congrats on your little angel!! xo

    1. Oh please!! You are too kind!! Thank you love!! I definitely still need to work at it 😉 Thanks for reading!! xo

  13. Hey Amber!

    I’ve got a question for you. I’m about to purchase a domain name, switch over from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, and get my blog custom designed so that I can better grow and monitize it in the future. Do you have any advice, based on your experiences, in regard to getting a custom blog design? Do you recommend a certain designer/group of designers? Etsy? This is something that seems to be worth an investment, so I really want to make a good choice! Thanks so much!

    Xoxo

  17. If any one want a dupe for your sunglasses urban outfitters has some. I always love yours and just can’t afford them but urban outfitters are great!

  18. Fun pictures! I’m pregnant right now so we ended up skipping out on the Mexican beach vacation next year. That’s okay… your pictures give me hope that I can just bring baby along next year! It makes me so excited! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Karen!! And that is a smart choice!! I am excited for you!! 🙂

    1. I am glad you like it but I don’t know the color!! 🙁 I got them done at the salon!

  19. Amber! I’m from Spain! I love your blog, your instagram, your youtube channel and your everithing <3

  20. Girl, you are speaking my language!!! I love 80s style one pieces. I have a baywatch looking one in red and live in it. You look stunning!! Love the kimono shots and those babes are adorable!!!

    xo,

  21. Such great photos and love the suit! It’s always so lovely to see how you take your beautiful family to all of these amazing places!

    Per Zika: I live in Playa del Carmen and specialized in infectious disease epidemiology in grad school. I’m glad that you didn’t cancel your vacation! As of this week there have been 0 confirmed cases of Zika virus in the state of Quintana Roo (where you were staying). In all of Mexico there have only been 93 cases and they have been in remote parts of states that are very far away from the tourist destinations. Canceling a trip to this part of Mexico would be like canceling a trip to the Seattle because of the confirmed case they found in Texas. The risk is very very very minimal!

    I work in tourism right now and its really sad to see the negative impact that the coverage in the US is having on the livelihoods of the local people here. A lot of people from the US have canceled vacations, regardless of whether their trying to get pregnant or are pregnant, and it’s having a huge impact!

    Thanks again for your post!

    1. Thanks so much Christine!! I am so glad you liked the post 🙂 And thank you for sharing that information. It was a relief to read this!! We felt much better once we got there and didn’t feel as worried. There was just a lot of scary information on the internet that scared me! Thanks again!!

  22. Hi Amber! Your vacation looks lovely, such cute pics! Just wanted to leave a comment about Rosie Belle, my “baby” who is now 17, had super bad reflux as a baby. She was a lean mean fighting machine. Anyways they probably have new research and all but they told me that it goes away around 7-8 months, and it did! Just something to think about if she has bad days, and you’ve changed her outfit a few times. Rosie is a cutie! Enjoy! They grow sooo fast!

    1. Thanks so much!! We had a great time 🙂 And oh thank goodness! I am glad to hear that. I feel like I am constantly changing her, poor girl! Thank you sharing mama!!

  23. You look amazing! Not just for having 2 kids, but just amazing in general! Have any workout or nutrition tips for other mommas?

  24. I feel like it’s a little excessive to bring $1690 worth of swimsuits to Mexico.

    1. Thanks so much!! I love a good neon swimsuit 🙂 And ahh thank you!! She is my little dollie!

  25. How gorgeous are you!!! ????I mean seriously!! Just beautiful love!!! Rosie’s belly is just the cutest!!! She is getting so big!! And A soooooo cute!!!! ???????? the one piece!! Right up my alley!! Looks like an amazing time! I think it is time for me to go back! Enjoyed this so much!! Safe travels!! xoxoxo ????

      1. Thanks for always making my days brighter and taking the time to respond! Means so much!!!! ????

  26. Love that suit! It’s interesting you mentioned Zika. I spent Christmas in both Costa Rica and Columbia and had never heard of it until I got home. My husband and I are about to start trying so needless to say I’m pretty freaked out about it too!

    1. Thanks so much Jen!! 🙂 And I hadn’t heard of it either until a little bit ago!! It is so scary but I know it is also very rare.. so I don’t want to get anyone freaked out but it’s good to know about.

  27. Thank you so much for sharing where to get all of your amazing suits!! You look AMAZING post baby, as if you never were pregnant before-what’s your secret?!! I love the blue and white high-neck one piece most I think, so unique and chic. Looks like you guys had a blast!

    1. You are too nice!! Thank you so much!! I still have some work to do though 😉 And I am glad you like the suits, thanks love!!

  28. Suffering from acid reflux myself now. Can you share any tips you do in your diet to manage it? Thanks

    1. Oh no!! I am sorry to hear that 🙁 It is the worst! One thing that helps me is to eat 2-3 hours before you lying down. It gives a chance for your food to digest and the acid levels to decrease. Good luck!!

  29. You’re so beautiful and down to earth. Life seems to be very good for you. When I heard you have a migraine it peaked my interest. I suffer with migraines nearly every day. I’m curious how you treat them or manage doing what you do if you get very many of them. Just a question. Thanks for your consideration and sharing yourself and your life with us.

    1. Wow thank you so much!! That is so nice to hear 🙂 You are too kind!! And I promise you, my life is far from perfect, but I do feel so blessed!! As far as helping my migraines, I rely on sleep and exercise! I feel like they help me the most!! 🙂

    1. Thanks!! It is also scary for young children, which is why I was so worried for my little ones.

  30. Love your pictures and your adorable little fam! Please come visit Kansas City someday!! ????

  31. I love that third image with your hair blowing in your face! The movement is so fun. You guys are all so cute! Love Rosie’s little chubby belly… and the Zika virus is totally scary! I haven’t had a one-piece in a while, but you are so making me want one! They look so good on you!!!

  32. Looks like you all had such a great time on your trip! Your little Rosie is just so darling in her swim suits!

    We are expecting a little girl and I wanted to get your opinion on the name Alice ? Please be brutally honest as I love it one day and hate it another haha Would love to know what you think 🙂

    1. Thanks so much!! We had a wonderful time 🙂 And aww you are too sweet! Thank you!! She is such a little doll, we adore her! And yay!! Congrats to you!! And YES!!! I LOVE that name!!! Seriously adorable!!! It is so timeless! xoxo

  33. so fun! we went to that resort for our honeymoon in september and are dying to get back once we know more about the virus! glad you guys had a good time!

    1. Thank so much!! I am happy you liked the post 🙂 And yes! We were definitely relieved too.

  38. Aw, sweetness! Yes, I’m always hearing stuff about Zika on NPR so I was thinking of you guys after seeing that you were in Mexico! It was probably a good call to hang around the resort. It looks like it was a lovely time! That last photo of you is golden!!

    1. How fun is that?! Have a blast!!! SO excited for you!! And yay! Glad you got some bug spray! I feel like I may have overreacted too haha it’s a girl thing 😉

  40. Green is my favorite color! That neon piece is seriously eye catching, I love it. Your sister is just as beautiful as you! The resort looks so dreamy, thanks for sharing with us!

  41. Love your style and have been trying out some of your braids on my daughter. You have such a fun blog! I’d be fretting the bugs too right now, but don’t worry about that weight percentile. 50th is healthier than 90th. They just need to gain a consistent weight, not too much. Trust me as a mom w/two kids on the opposite end of the percentile, I’ve had many a pediatrician conversations on this topic 😉

    1. Thanks so much!! And yay! I love hearing that 🙂 I bet you’re a braiding pro now!! And thank you! I feel relieved hearing that from a fellow mama. I appreciate it! xo

      1. I’m definitely practicing my dutch braiding skills. My little girl has a side part and we started at the front crown on each side and did dutch braid pigtails both days this weekend. She’s 5 and she loved it! Your site is such a great inspiration. No matter how you wear your hair, it’s always amazing 🙂

        1. Thanks so much Rylie!! You are so sweet! And no way?! How cute!! I bet it looked adorable on her 🙂

  42. What a cute pictures of your family vacation! You look really good, a happy mom! I’m pregnant with baby number 2 and leaving for Portugal in a couple of weeks! You are an Inspiration. Lots of love from the Netherlands!

    1. Thank you so much Amanda!! That is so sweet of you 🙂 And yay!! So happy for you!! I hope your pregnancy is going well!! xo

  43. Ahh! You are so lucky to be tall & to be able to have long legs & pull off such cute one piece swimsuits! No joke! Love the neon green suit & the low sides on it under the arms is totally 80s …hahaha …love it!! Thanks for posting all the swimsuits too 🙂 Beautiful pictures as always!

  44. What kind of tan did you use? Being pregnant I’m sure that you are using a very safe one for the little one breast feeding. But your tan looks absolutely stunning!

    1. I use Kate Somerville tanning towelettes!! They are so easy to apply! You can get them from Nordstrom and Sephora 🙂

  45. These pictures are to die for!!! Like seriously so cute and I’m sure you’ll cherish these forever 🙂 We went to Mexico last summer and I miss it everyday haha it was so amazing and fun where we went in Rocky Point. Obviously since I’m prego we wont be traveling outside AZ for a while!

    Thank you for linking all your suits! I will just admire and wish I owned them from afar haha And that kimono. freaking love it! I always get confused by UK sizes and I’ve totally ordered a toddler sized thing on accident. Oops! You should have kept it and saved it to match Rosie haha 😉 happy weekend!!

    1. Thank you so much love!! So glad you like the post! 🙂 And yes! I love Rocky Point too! Lots of good memories there! Haha that is too funny!! I am glad I am not the only one confused by UK sizing! And thank you!! I hope you had a great weekend too! xo

  46. Ah I’m so scared about the zika virus too! We’ve been to bora bora and a few other places in the past months so here’s to hoping that nothing was caught on our trips! Glad you only saw one mosquito! I too would be paranoid and spray like crazy! Looks like you had a nice trip!

    Wonderfulandwhimsical.com

    1. I know what you mean!! It is so freaky but I also have to remember how rare it is!! (I can’t help but be paranoid haha!) And thank you!! We had a great time! 🙂

  47. That neon green looks amazing with your skintone and I love the kimono you paired with it. Was A’s fever a result of teething? I don’t know anything about this lmao. I hope Rosie gets her rolls like you want and have a safe trip home.

    http://www.dressupchowdown.com

    1. Yeah he for some reason always gets a fever when he teeths! In fact the only times he has gotten fevers have been with teeth coming in! So weird 🙁

    1. You are too kind!! Thanks so much 🙂 And that’s a great suggestion, thank you!!

  48. You might want to take him in to get checked and make sure he does not have the Zika Virus. A fever is one of the signs of infection in young children. Additionally, it is just a myth that teething causes a fever. Make sure to tell his doctor that you just traveled to Mexico. I hope it is just nothing, but better to be safe.

    1. He has gotten a fever with almost every single tooth that has come in 🙁 I am taking us all in to get checked to be safe but no one got a single bug bite!

      1. My son also gets a fever with every tooth. Especially the molars. And there is never an underlying issue other than a tooth coming through!

        1. My daughter also got a temperature with each and every tooth. My son got all of his teeth with no trouble but each child is different xx

          1. Thanks ladies!! Glad to hear that you have similar experiences, it is hard to know exactly what is “normal” since each child is different. 🙂
