Since we had all our pumpkins from the pumpkin patch we took them to the park to carve and I was thinking Atticus would be super into it…. he was…. for like 15 minutes. We happened to snap a few pics while he was actually into it and then he saw dogs walk past and got way too distracted. Haha but David and I had fun carving 😉 And he did enjoy sticking sticks in the jack-o-lanterns eyes and nose afterwards ha. He won’t actually SAY pumpkin but when we ask him where the pumpkin is he will point to it, so I will take it.

We did some exploring after and went on a walk with the wagon which he is obsessed with! (I always catch him reading his books in his wagon in his nursery). I wore my new Hush Puppies that are the most comfortable shoes ever! I always need comfy shoes in the city because we walk miles and miles every day and I am super prone to blisters, so these are perfect. Yesterday was a pretty lazy day and we still ended up walking at least 5 miles. We prefer to walk over taking the subway most of the time because the weather is so amazing right now. I love the orange color of these Cyra Catelyns which they are perfect for Fall. Which by the way I am glad we are actually getting a Fall in NYC. I thought we went straight to winter with last week’s weather and it was frightening. I normally wouldn’t get suede shoes right before a NY winter, but these are made from worry-­free suede and are treated with a protective coating to resist stains and watermarks.

These shoes come in so many colors, you can see them all here!

  1. What size do you normally where in shoes/what size are you wearing in these? I bought 7.5 and I could fit in the 7 with out socks, but I am just wondering if I should do an 8 to be safe? Normally I am a 7.5/8. Decisions, decisions… being a girl can be so difficult sometimes…. 😉

  2. Hi amber!
    We have the same name haha :p i really enjoy reading your blog!! And i adore your style!! You always look so beautiful and happy 🙂 i have a question for you, i’ve been wondering what camera you use for blogging and your pictures. And what lens 🙂 I love the quality! I’ve been looking for a very good camera and the pictures you take always look perfect!
    Big hugs and kisses for your cute little family! Xoxo

  3. What a fun idea to carve your pumpkins outdoors at the park! That last picture of A in the wagon with the pumpkin is to die for. He is one beautiful and photogenic little guy! Love your look too !! xoxo

    1. It is so fun and my favorite part is that the mess isn’t at our place haha 😉 And aww thank you!!! I am so glad you liked the post!! xo

    1. Thanks!! I am so glad you like them!! And that’s so sweet of you, thank you! We had a blast 🙂 Have a great day love!!

  4. I’ve been thinking about ordering those hush puppies for weeks, you’ve inspired me to finally hit the purchase button!

  5. I love all the candid shots of Lil’ A doing his own thing! He’s such an adventurer! Also dying over these orange suede dreams, but unfortunately they’re sold out of my size 🙁

    1. Aww thank you Hailey!! He really is!! I love it 🙂 And darn!! Sorry about that!

  6. Hi Amber! I am seriously such a HUGE “fan” (if you could say so) of your instagram – I love the pictures and the theme in general. Could you pretty please tell me how you edit your pictures (both app and which filters you use?). It would make me so happy!

    1. Thank you so much love!! That means so much to me!! And I use a program called Lightroom to edit my camera pictures and an app called VSCO cam for iphone pics!! xo

  7. Hey Amber! I am seriously such a HUGE “fan” (if you could say so) of your instagram – I love the pictures and the theme in general. Could you pretty pretty please tell me how you edit your pictures (both app and which filters you use?). It would make me so happy – love your blog! xx

  8. Oh Amber, what a fun day. Those messy pumpkins- he he. I bet Atticus had a blast. A friend of mine is right now with her baby boy in NY as well. Maybe Atticus will see him somewhere in Central Park and play with him! 😉

    1. Thanks so much pretty!! It made for great memories 🙂 And we would love that!! Atticus loves new friends!

  9. I love your shoes, probably being naive but I didn’t realize other people (like around the world) wore them, we call them Veldskoene haha my mom used to make me wear them as a kid and I hated them but now looking back at the stuff she made me wore she had pretty good taste 🙂

    1. hehe ok so I googled and these shoes do originate from South Africa which would explain my thinking they were a SA thing haha. So good on you for showing cultural pride or something 😉

    2. Thanks so much Carey!! And isn’t so cool?! I love how universal they are!! Your mom definitely had great style 🙂

  10. Hi Amber,
    You should try TOMS, I absolutely love the shoes. They are so light and comfortable and I can do even long walks while wearing them. So many different choices and all goes to good cause. 🙂
    Hope you like these too.
    Love your posts and super cute family!
    Tried few your braids and recipes (obsessed at the moment with turkey, apple, grape sandwich).
    You’ve even commented my braid pic 🙂 @mammu_liisu on Instagram.
    Can’t wait to finally see your little girl as well. So lovely to read your posts about everything 🙂 good tips too.

    Mari-Liis xx 🙂

    1. Hi Mari-Liis!!

      Thanks for the suggestion!! I have tried TOMS before 🙂 I agree, they are great too! And I am so glad you tried some of my recipes too!! That makes me happy!! And yes! I love seeing braid pics 🙂 Can’t wait to see more!!


  11. Hi Amber,
    Could you please tell me what settings do you mostly use when you take pictures (ISO, Shutter Speed, F Aperture etc.).
    Your photos always look so nice and sharp 🙂

    1. Hi Jessica!!
      Thanks so much!! And to answer your question.. it all depends on the lighting 🙂 The settings are different every day, even if the sun comes out a little more outdoors or if we go indoors, we have to readjust the settings. So it is hard to say! But we use a Canon 5d Mark iii. xoxo

  12. This is adorable! We just bought our pumpkins yesterday, and it’s making me so excited for halloween!
