We have been dying to go to the beach since we moved to NYC and decided to do a little mid week trip there – it was sooo fun and just as amazing as I thought it would be. Before Atticus was born my cousin gave us a bunch of her boys old clothes that she wasn’t using anymore (I love hand me down baby clothes, they are so soft!) and in the bunch were a ton of Splendid baby clothes! I have always worn Splendid (lots of posts but this post has my fav pajamas by them!) and didn’t realize they made baby clothes and all of the onesies made by them ended up being our favs. Needless to say we are big fans of Splendid around here. So today we are teaming up with them to show you what we packed for our weekend trip…


Swimsuits (I packed this top, this top and these bottoms)



Flip Flops






Bag 1, Bag 2 (We have a lot of stuff:)


Shorts / Comfy tee sets (We packed  this, this and this.


Beach Toys





And more toys:)

  1. Hi, Amber. Could you tell where you got the hats? They are so cute! 🙂

  2. Oh I love this!! You and your family always look so happy! This is a little off topic, but where is the robe on the back of your door from? I love everything shabby chic! Thank you!

    1. He is my big one year old now!! So crazy!! I love this stage though it’s so fun 🙂 and yay!! Splendid is amazing!! I am glad you agree! xo

  3. Hi Amber!
    I am following you from France! I like your hair, I like your style, I like your family, I like your pictures!
    Question: do you have a trick so that your hats are not all crushed in your bags/suitcase when you go on vacation? Thanks!
    Keep writting and big hugs to Atticus!

    1. Hi Nathalie!!
      Thanks so much for your comment!! You are so sweet! I am so glad you are following along 🙂 And YES!! Okay so when I pack my hats I put them upside down and I stuff t-shirts inside the hat and then all around and under the brim if that makes sense? It’s the best way to pack hats and utilize packing space I have found! I hope that helps! xo

      Here is an a Youtube video as an example 🙂

  6. I love Splendid, something about their clothing just always seems so clean and pure! I had no idea that they made baby clothes (something I am a little to young to be looking into haha) but I’m not surprised. I’m sure that those clothes must be extra comfy for the little ones 🙂
