DRESS: VivettaFLATS: Manolo BlahnikSUNGLASSES: Miu MiuBAG: Kate Spade

OMG, Vivetta dresses! I can’t look at her dresses online because…. way too much money later, here I am. I love how unique each piece is and her signature collar (the one on this dress) is just too fun! I got this one in Florence and have found any excuse to wear it since. I also got these shoes in Florence! I love Manolo, maybe one of my favorite shoe designers and I want to collect these flats in every color, so badly! I love them so much. Whenever I wear them I literally look down at my feet and wiggle them around to see them sparkle hahah.

I wore this dress for an exciting day of meetings (not sarcasm, they were actually exciting meetings!) and while we were in a meeting it started POURING rain! Like so insanely hard I thought it was hurricane sandy. Then 10 minutes later, bright and sunny. New York weather is so random haha! Loved walking around in the muggy weather with my love!

We work together, live together, parent together, we do everything together. So when he is gone for even a few hours it feels like 100! We drive each other INSANE some days like really really insane haha but I love that we get to do everything together even if I bug him! While I was gone this weekend, everyone was asking, “how is david doing with just the kids?!” and I was like, he is doing better than I would ha! He took them to the movies, the park so many times, the museum, on breakfast dates, and each time I face timed he would say look what I taught Rosie!!! Or look what Atticus can do now! He is the best daddy ever.

Hope you all are having a good week! I was just with my grandma for the weekend and she is the most positive person you will ever meet. She picks up strangers at the airport and invites them to stay in their home, says she has never met a person she disliked, and when asked if she has ever been sad she responds with a bewildered look and says “why would I ever be sad!?!?! my life is so wonderful!!!” She carries around a folder with my magazine spread and photos of me and my siblings so she can bust it out and show any stranger she meets. I was telling her I want to be just like her and be as positive as she is and she was saying “you know honey in life bad things will happen, but either way, they are going to happen. So you may as well have a smile on your face through it!” she is so darling and the sweetest soul. I love her so much and want to be just like her.

  10. Oh my your grandma sounds like the sweetest person I literally had tears in my eyes reading this! My grandmother was a second mother to me. When I was little I would tell her if I ever have a daughter I’ll name her after you. I did have twin daughters and one of them is named after her. My grandmother’s name was Meredith.?

  11. Awww, your grandma sounds adorable!!! I am in love with my grandma as well and want to be just like her. ? that’s so awesome that you and David get to spend so much time together! I always miss my boyfriend when we go off to work. Vacation is awesome not just because we are traveling in fun places, but because we get to spend all day together the entire time 🙂

  12. that dress/entire outfit is absolute perfection! I went to the Vivetta press day here in London and the collar detail is what caught my eye. Such gorgeous vintage inspired pieces with a touch of quirk! x

  13. Your words about your grandma made me miss my own grandma. She seems like a lovely lady, and very cheerful. Definitely would like to be like her when I am here age. She was too funny on snapchat. I loved that dress and the collar. Super chic combo with the shoes!

  15. Your grandma is the sweetest, and what wise words. I love the collar on the dress. And the shoes… To die for.. Love them!!! Can’t wait for you to post the photoshoot with your girlfriends, the photo on instagram is absolutely flawless. So much fun to do with your besties!
    Lots of love from Holland!

  16. LOVE that dress with those flats! btw, glad you shared that story about your Grandma. mine is similarly positive and it’s such a great attribute to learn from her!

  17. You look beautiful as always Amber. I am so jealous of those flats! I would stare at my feet too!! The detail on that dress is amazing. If I had the money I would buy it in a heartbeat! David is such a trooper. He is such an admirable guy.

  18. Your grandmother sounds amazing Amber. I can’t tell you how much people like her are needed in today’s world. I feel like sometimes the city life breaks ya: the bad drivers, the traffic, the weather, and of course people. But reading things like this is always so moving and a reminder that miniscule things are irrelevant and to not get upset over things you can’t change. Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  19. Such an adorable outfit! That dress is so fun I love the collar and I love Manolo Blahnik flats!!

  20. Aw, your grandma sounds amazing! And like the kind of person you just want to capture and keep her sweetness! That’s sweet how fun David is with the kids! Hope you’re having a great time!

  21. Oh my goodness, obsessed with this nail polish colour!!! What colour is it?! Been dying for a corally summer shade.

  22. Amber, I adore reading little person excerpts like this into your life. You’re such a beautiful person and remind me so often of how happy and wonderful life should be. Sending my love from Amsterdam!! xxx

  23. I spent the month of May in Florence, just before you and your family got there! I wish I would have seen clothes as cute as these!
    Your grandmother is amazing, I loved your snap chats of her. Speaking of snapchat, the watermelon dress you wore on the boat with your family was the cutest thing ever!! Where did you get that?
    Thanks for the lovely post and snapchats they make my day.

  24. hello mrs. Amber! I ABSOLUTLY love you and your family and hair styles. and I recently became obsessed with braiding and I can do most of the styles that you do!!! anywho I am thinking of starting a blog and I was wondering if I could ask a few questions. so first how do you edit (like what filter and app do you use)? and how you started out! thank you! xoxo

  25. I just loved this post. Amber, I think that you already emulate the wonderful qualities that you see in your Grandmother. Your blog is always so full of happiness and gives such a positive view of family life (when much of the world does not) and inspires so many. I know that you guys are always making my day brighter and giving me the encouragement to be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister and so on. Just think of the millions of lives you make sweeter! Lots of love to the Clarks! xoxo

  26. Hello Amber!
    The part about your grandma is so genuine, I loved reading it!
    My grandma is my role model, her and my grandpa helped my mom raising me and my brother, and two years ago we moved from Italy to the U.S. and everytime they visit us is amazing! I would love for them to live with me again for some time in the future, especially when I’ll have kids. My grandma is would be the happiest! Next year they will celebrate 50 years of marriage and I am so glad I got to see two people being there for each there day after day, without letting life struggles win over anything. More people need to understand that successful marriages are built day by day by both partners and that being there for each other unconditionally will make it stronger.
    You truly are an inspiration, along with your husband.

    Have a good day/week/everything!


  27. Cute outfit! You remind me of Miss Frizzle from the Magic School Bus haha

  28. I have been doing your grandmas hair for years! She is the sweetest cutest lady ever! She has busted that folder out many times for me to show me pics and magazines! She is a proud grandma!

  29. I just wanted to say I LOVE how open you are in your blog and on your snapchat. When you were away for your family reunion I ended up watching your snapchat story a few times because it was just so funny and reminded me of my own childhood and my family. I follow tons of fashion blogs (they are like my morning coffee) but yours is my favorite because you’re just so real! xx

  30. That collar is just too much! It reminds me of an old cartoon I used to watch, but I cant remember which!! Since you’re a 90s kid maybe you remember lol
    It’s driving me nuts!!!! Hahahahha
    Anyways, looking gorgeous as always!! Hope David make a vídeo of those days with the children. I love his videos!!!

  31. Okay this might just be the sweetest post ever. You’re such an idol to me, and now your grandmother is as well! Such great words to live and love by ?? love you soooo much!

  32. Awww your grandma sounds like an amazing lady!

  33. This post made me teary! It’s so cute to know David was taking care of the littles by himself! And your grandma sounds so sweet. My husbands grandma just passed away recently and she was a positive person just like your grandma. She ran 3 miles every day and was always always happy and spreading joy. Women like that are so inspiring! I love your encouraging posts.


  34. Wow this dress is BEAUTIFUL!! And you look beautiful in it! Stepping foot in your closet must be a dream haha
