On Saturday we had the entire day planned and we were going to take Atticus to do all this fun stuff because it was PERFECT weather but he woke up with a 102 fever and was completely miserable. He had a fever for three whole days and on the second day it climbed up to 104 so we took him into the ER.. which proved to be somewhat worthless. Apparently if your baby has a fever but no other symptoms (runny nose, cough, etc) then there is nothing they can do but ride it out and take some motrin. It was HEARTBREAKING!!!! I told him he is never allowed to get sick again 😉 but I definitely did not mind the non stop cuddles. And when I say non stop I mean like he would NOT sleep unless I was holding him so we cuddled all day and all night. I was completely sleep deprived because I can’t help but watch his little face snuggled up next to mine – but it was heaven. Minus him being miserable. It was like heaven/hell. Babies getting sick is really just so so sad!

BUT yesterday he was happy and feverless so we went on a walk to show David this adorable flower shop we found going to the market the other day! We have a balcony and its pretty small but we keep storage tubs out there and David is making a wood covering so we can cover the tubs and make it into a bench and hide the tubs (does that make ANY SENSE?) anyways then we will put pads and pillows on the wood so its nice and pretty – it will be really nice to have a place to sit and eat dinners together! We are gonna get some hanging flowers which is why we went to the flower shop and we found so many we want to get for when its all finished.

I wore this new dress I got during the Shopbop sale (sold out on Shopbop now but available here, at Netaporter) and I am kind of in love with it! I have a few similar ones that are a bit more budget friendly below since the sale is over now!

    1. Aww thank you so much!! You are so sweet!! That means the world to me!! I am glad you like the look 🙂 And aww thanks Shona!! We are so excited to grow our family!! xo

  3. I am so impressed that Atticus can drink from a straw! He’s only a few months older than my son, Connor and (while I’ve never tried a straw) I don’t think it would go well if I gave him a straw. Something I’ll have to try!

    1. Omg he loves drinking through a straw!! It so cute!! His “new” thing haha 🙂 I bet your little guy is adorable!! Thanks for reading!! xo

  4. I’m soo sorry about A’s fever. That’s so sad :(. My cousin recently had a baby and it’s so sad whenever he gets sick. You’re outfit is perfection though, and he looks very happy in the pictures so that’s great!

  6. Poor baby!! At least he looks happy and feeling much better now! I love the idea for the balcony, we’ve been talking about doing something similar on our deck. And with all of the flower shops out right now I am dying to just cover everything in flowers. I love it!

  7. Hi Amber, Absolutely stunning photos and such a chic fabulous outfit. In love with the hat and dress! Loving the nars heat wave lip paired with it, curious I have the lipstick just wondering if u use or found a good lipliner to match it well? Also I have very similar complexion and would love to know the color of your estee lauder foundation color? Thanks have a Blessed Day . Xox

  8. Hi Amber,

    Looking beautiful as always! I love your style and those shoes are beautiful. Saturday, my family and I did actually go in to the city. We went to Union Square to have lunch and it was such a beautiful day! I am soo sorry to hear that poor Atticus was sick. Did they tell you what exactly was wrong with him? I have yet to experience a very high fever with my son and am not looking forward to that day. I am glad he is doing better now and you are all out and about again taking gorgeous pictures! xo


    1. Thank you so much Nicole!! I am so happy you are following along now!! xoxo

    1. Ahh thanks so much!! I am so glad you like it!! And Atticus is almost good as new, thanks for thinking of him!! xo

  9. your dress and lipstick combo is SO on point! I love the breezy coachella vibes coming from your cute ensemble. Dumb college has me really backed up with homework so I’ve neglected my usual blog reading routine Blehhh. but you’re still fabulous as always so props to you

    1. Thanks so much!! That is the sweetest thing I have heard!! I appreciate it so much! And I use a canon 5d mark iii 🙂 xo

  11. You are such a babe!

    Seriously. This is one of my fave looks you’ve done! And Atticus is so stinkin cute!

    1. Oh my goodness you are too kind!! Thank you Sarah!! Such nice compliments!! Love ya!

  12. Girl, I was nodding along to everything you said about it being heaven/hell when your baby’s sick! Mostly just really really sad and heartbreaking though. 🙁 My baby just turned one and got his VERY first cold ever, which I mean, YAY! for going a whole year, but also BOO for being miserable. Glad your babe’s better! He’s a sweetie! And you look gorge!


  13. You are seriously just the most fabulous mom and wife. For real though, you are always so gorgeously put together and always talking so positively about your cute little guy and hubby! Just love the dress and the flower hanging idea! Hope you’re having a fabulous day yourself, and I hope A is feeling much better!! 🙂

  14. awhh poor baby A! glad he is feeling better. Sick babies are so so sad but oh so cuddly! Obviously your dress is so pretty & the hat is a perfect finish to it! Did you guys ever get to do the fun stuff you were wanting to do with Atticus?

    1. Thanks so much!! You are so sweet!! We love going out and about to explore!! Chauncey sure loves the fresh air too 🙂 xo

  15. Love your energy and positivity. So inspirational to follow you and your little love-filled family.

    1. Thanks so much love!! You are so sweet!! I appreciate your comment 🙂 xo

  16. I was gonna say I love your dress but I LOVE everything that you’re wearing. Also, omg I have been dying to go to nyc those flowers look amazing, ever since you’ve moved ive been dying to visit NYC!

    1. Ahh thanks so much!! I am happy to hear that!! And flowers in NYC are the best, mainly because they are so cheap haha 🙂 Definitely come and visit!! xo

  17. Hey Amber! I recently moved to NYC and I am trying to find a good hairstylist. I wasn’t sure if you had any recommendations on where to go/who to see! It’s a bit expensive to get your hair done here so I want to make sure I go to someone who knows what they’re doing. 🙂

    1. Hi Jordan!! I go to Flores at Arrojo Salon!! She’s amazing 🙂 She is reasonably priced as well!! I hope this helps 🙂 xo

    1. Thanks so much Susie!! Sorry I am just seeing this 🙂 You are so sweet!! xo

  18. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this look! I follow you on snapchat and when I saw this outfit I couldn’t wait for you to post it. I can’t believe your hat is only $32.00 from Nordstrom! What a deal, I swear it looks so expensive. That’s one of my favorite things about your blog, you incorporate affordable pieces into your wardrobe. As much as I like reading other blogs it’s hard to shop on their site because everything is $200+. Anyways, you look amaz and I hope little A is feeling better 🙂

    Stay Styled,

  19. Glad your little babe is feeling better! It is so heart wrenching when they’re sick because there is NOTHING you can do but snuggle and give medicine. But, I couldn’t agree more that those snuggles are the best thing ever!! You can get their baby smell and chubby goodness all over and knowing that you are the one they want to be with is such an amazing feeling.

    Anyways, you look gorgeous as always – love the dress and hat and the lips. Plus, that picture of Atticus slurping on the smoothie is too cute! 🙂 glad you guys got to get out while it was sunny!

  20. So happy to see that little A is feeling much better! My 3 yr old had a fever over the weekend as well and I totally understand how you felt! They are so helpless when sick and all you want to do is make them feel better… As always, love your outfit & make-up. Always on point! xoxo from New Mexico!

  21. Poor Atticus:( Watching your Snapchats over the weekend, oh they were so sad! I’m so happy he is feeling better and back to his happy self! It must be so much fun to just wander the streets on NY because there is just so much to see and do! I wish I lived there, I have always wanted to live there for a year just to get a feel of the New Yorker lifestyle! I’m living through you and your blog:) Lol!

    Have a great day!
    Xo, Kalyn

  22. Poor baby Atticus! 🙁 I can totally understand how helpless you feel when your baby is sick. Worst feeling since they’re so innocent.

  24. You look so stunning even after a sleep deprived few days! You know it’s spring when the flower shop sets up outside, love it. The bench David is making sounds awesome! Perfect for summer dinner’s spent outside. Gotta add that to my “honey do” list 🙂

    1. OMG stop it!! You always know how to make me smile!! Thank you beautiful!! And oh yes those “honey do” lists never end 😉 haha!

  25. This is one of my favorite outfits of yours ever and you have THE prettiest smile! That dress is seriously amazing…I’m obsessed with it and how you styled it (and the Chanel boy + hat are perfect with it).

    1. I know it 🙁 the worst thing ever!! Thanks for thinking of Atticus! And yes!! I can’t wait to share the final look!! 🙂

  29. Lovely dress!! I also love that you stay true to your roots. I know it is near impossible to go Barefoot in NYC but I appreciate that you are not trotting around in heels all the time. It’s so much more realistic! Love your blog and your kid is the cutest baby i’ve EVER seen. I love that you include him. You are super-mama!

    1. Thank you Victoria!! You totally made my day!! I am so happy you follow along! I appreciate the love and support! Love ya!! xo

      1. Of course! I visit your blog everyday. You are a constant source of inspiration!! All my love to you and your sweet family 🙂

    1. Thanks so much!! I am happy you like the look!! I agree, it is so fun for spring!! And aww thank you!! It was the worst feeling because I felt helpless 🙁 The good news is he is feeling much better and yes, I got lots of cuddles!! YAY! I appreciate your sweet comment!! xo

  31. Ah! Poor Atticus! It’s so sad when your baby gets sick! I’m a nurse and two weeks after I delivered, my baby boy got a wicked cold and I took him to the clinic at least three times just wanting them to be able to do something for him. It’s heart breaking. He’s never spiked a temp like that before. Knock on wood! I’m so glad he’s feeling better!


    1. Aww thank you so so much!! From one mom to another, you can totally relate and it’s the worst feeling ever when your little one is sick 🙁 I am so happy he is feeling much better now yay!! Thanks for the love!! xo
