Okay are you guys a “look cute” or “be comfy” kinda person when traveling? I mean ideally you’re both – but in my case I usually just look like I am about to go to bed and I am okay with that because I just like to be comfy and warm. But yesterday we island hopped over to the big island and I thought, I am going to wear actual clothes! It was only a 40 min flight so how bad could it be? Bad – I was freeeeezing. But luckily only for 40 minutes.

I know everyone hates Mondays but I actually look forward to them. I love to get the week going and work on all the ideas me and David had over the weekend 🙂 it also isn’t too shabby doin it from sunny Hawaii. Definitely not taking for granted a second we spend here.

Also excited to sort of start to eat healthy again because these last few days – yiiikes. My booty is still sore from Friday’s workout though so I felt like that made up for it.

Have a good day everyone! Aloha vibes only. 😉

  1. Cuuute! Too many times have I opted for “look cute” instead and have suffered for it. Haha!

  2. Sooo freaking cute! What product(s) do you use to create the beach waves?! Cause I have a hard time getting mine to wave since it’s long..

  3. I love to be a ‘look cute’ when I fly kind of girl! I travel weekly for work, so I have had a lot of practice mastering my style. I always have a pair of ‘fluffy’ pink socks and a cashmere scarf to bundle up with on the plane when I get chilly. These two things typically do the trick!

  4. Amanda you are just simply the cutest! I Loved this photo shoot…you looked so much like Rosie…..I know…I know…Rosie looks like you LOL You’re the BEST MOM ever! If I get blessed enough to get a grandchild I want to be just like you!

    1. Aww really?! yay! I love hearing she looks like me 🙂 Thank you!! You are so sweet!

  5. I love Monday’s too! && I need that shirt…even though I live in Vegas haha

  6. The other day I was looking at your Hawaii photos and thought exactly what you mentioned: these people know how to make the most of their time in Hawaii. It’s fun to see your adventures and inspires our family to make the most of wherever we are!

    1. Wow thank you!! I love hearing that! We sure try 🙂 It’s too amazing here! Thanks for following along love!! xo

  7. I’m definitely more of a ‘comfy outfit’ kind of person during flight, but it’s usualy long flights… You’re right, 40 minutes is alright and I guess I’d dress better for a short flight! love your outfit a lot, this skirt looks amazing!

    1. So true!! I am usually in comfy clothes on long flights too 🙂 And thank you!! I am happy you like the look! xo

  8. Such cute airport style! Can’t wait to see what ideas you and David came up with. Happy Monday Amber !

  9. Looking cute at the airport is such a struggle.. some people make it look so easy! I’d have to agree with you though, being comfortable and warm is always a better choise haha.

    1. Right?! It may be my first and last time trying to look all cute while flying haha! Thanks for reading by the way 🙂

  10. This look is perfect. You were brave to go sans sweater! I definitely would’ve brought a cardigan. Definitely a cute idea for a flight and just an everyday look. It’s snowing here in Utah so I’m just dying looking at all of your sunny photos. Have fun in the big island!

  11. We love big island! Have so much fun! I am definitely island sick and cannot wait to go back ! And yes I’ve done the cute on a plane once and totally regretted not wearing my usual ‘hobo’ attire!

  12. Haha! That is why I do not wear actual clothes. I mean, sometimes I try too, but I always bring a sweater because it is always freezing! You look so cute though in that skirt. Happy Monday!


  13. ahhhhh I swear no matter how hard I try, I never look this cute at the airport!! not fair! love mikoh swimsuits, didn’t know that they made tshirts – super cute!

  14. This may be weird to ask but what butt workout are you doing? I’d like to know for my workouts! lol…

    1. Not weird at all!! I have been doing the Kayla Itsines bikini body guide (BBG) and it is killer! It’s a guide and you follow her workouts so it’s hard to explain but I am hoping to do a video soon!! xo

  15. That suitcase is so cute!!! Orange is my favorite color! Where did you get it! It looks like the perfect quick get away suitcase😍

  16. You seriously inspire me to be a happy and more positive person & hopefully travel the world some day. Your blog is seriously s’cool. Thanks Amber 🙂

    1. That is the sweetest compliment!! Thank you so much!! I am so happy you are following along!! xo

  17. I definitely like being comfortable. It’s not worth caring about what I look when I’m about to be stuck in a tight space with limited movement.

  18. Everyone looks at me like I’m *insane* when I bring a big, cozy cardigan with me while traveling (esp. in the summer in Arizona)! Every single airplane I go on is freezing! Plus, it doubles as a blanket 😉 Also, loving all the embroidery outfits recently! I’m absolutely in love with that trend!

    xo, Sofia

  19. Love this look and I’m obsessed with your hat! But I would be completely freezing if I wore this on a plane…I usually have to bundle up in 2 sweaters and a scarf even if it’s 85 degrees out!


  20. I’m definitely a comfy clothes wear-er when it comes to traveling! Planes are so cold that I can’t bear to wear anything but long sleeves and cozy pants. I love your outfit!

  21. Adore this outfit! I rarely dress cute on planes, usually the flights are longer than 40 minutes though haha! Planes kind of gross me out so I like wearing an outfit I can immediately get out of. I love Monday’s too, waking up early and getting to work is the best feeling – have an amazing week 🙂

  22. love love that tee!! so perfect for your life right now!! i doubt you ever look like a schmuck, but i am totally the same haha!! i aim for both, but i have to be comfortable and practical!! usually comfy skinnies for me… and in recent years something i can nurse in. oh, the glam!!! xoxoxo

  23. All the ideas David and I had over the weekend.

    There, fixed that for you. 🙂 My teacher from long ago helped me remember it this way: you wouldn’t say “all the ideas me had over the weekend.” Try taking the other person’s name out and testing it that way.
    Btw, I definitely need to always stand on my toes like you do in photos to get more slim and toned looking legs. Thanks for the visual tip!

  24. You are the cutest! Obsessing over that skirt 🙂 Yes, I always try to look cute on airplanes but comfort is a priority (I’ll do leggings, flats, an oversized sweater… and carry a jacket for a blanket because I’m always cold haha)!! Seriously — always cold.
