Last week we headed out to Grand Central Station to take Atticus to the train exhibit there and we stopped at Bryant Park along the way for a lil nursing/food/let Atticus run around break. I seriously want Christmas trees all over the city year round. PLEASE!!! It is the best and most magical thing. When we got to the train exhibit Atticus flew out of the stroller so fast and started shrieking with excitement when he saw the train! I heard noises I had never heard before come from him haha. I seriously was in heaven watching him be so excited. We left and both looked at each other and said, CLEARLY we have to get him a train for Christmas.

I have always loved color but in winter more than anything I love wearing colorful accessories. I bought a TON of tights in every color for the winter season (they were all on sale and I couldn’t resist) and I loved these pink ones, they made me and my uncoordinated self feel like a ballerina haha. I secretly wish I could have been a dancer but if you saw home videos of me dancing you would squirm out of secondhand embarrassment .. its like, really really bad. I love having lots of tights, beanies, and scarves in all different colors because they make a really simple outfit look so cozy and layered. I am currenlty loving this scarf, this beanie, and these tights.

PS Can you tell I cut a few inches off my hair?!

    1. Not weird at all! That is actually so sweet of you. Thank you so much!!! And I know it’s not for everyone, do it at your own pace 🙂

  7. There is nothing better than NYC during Christmastime! I love your blog posts — you and your family are absolutely adorable.

    1. I agree!! I love this time of year 🙂 And thank you so much for reading!! I appreciate it!! xo

    1. I can’t even remember which one I put on that day but I believe it’s a shade from MAC! Sorry that isn’t much help!! xo

  8. How old was Atticus when you found out you were pregnant with Rosie? Love your blog!!

  9. It is crazy how stylish and perfect you are knowing you have a newborn and a toddler. Superwoman!
    Love the pictures, Christmas is such nice a moment to share with your Family… And how beautiful is New York ! I adore your blog, YouTube Channel and insta. Always happy when I see a new blog post ^^ you are always so generous with all the pictures and a long text to read. It’s my guilty pleasure 🙂 lots of love from France !

  10. Aaww ! I am in love with ur family , sooo adorable , u have perfect family amber ! ???????????? love u all

  11. Do you guys have a photographer that takes the pictures or do you do it yourself cuz they always turn out so good.

    1. Thank you!! David takes our photos and when he is in them we sometimes have someone else snap it or use a tripod 😉

  12. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! Such a beautiful family!!! What camera do you guys use when you’re out and about? They always come out gorgeous!

  13. I found you via Instagram and love trying the different braids for myself and oldest daughter (she is 4). Both of us have really long hair and my youngest isn’t far behind (she is 2).
    I wanted to let you know that balancing 2 kids will become natural and one day you will surprise yourself by doing something with one hand and not really having to think about it too much. I have three now and was surprised how quickly it all came back to me. You look like you are doing a great job, enjoy your babies!

  27. It makes me happy to moms out and about with their kids, but you are amazing! Not only do you have a newborn, but we are nearing winter ( not like it’s noticeable with this weather 😉 ) and you look outstanding when doing so!

  28. Oh Lord are those pictures of Atticus with the train ever cute!!! I have no idea what it is about little boys and trains but I swear it’s like genetic because every boy I’ve met LOVES them! So cute! I totally agree with the Christmas trees all year long thing. It’s just so magical looking at them! Loving the pics as always! xo

  38. So nice! Dear Amber, could you please tell about the devices you take photos on?

  39. Omg your snapchats of A and the train were probably the cutest thing ever. Those pictures are great too. I’m in Chicago which I love but I was in NYC for work last year in December and it really is magical there around Christmas time and I find myself wishing I could spend a few days there right now.. and the weather makes it so perfect and extra enjoyable! Beautiful Christmas-ready city and its warm enough to walk around for hours on end enjoying it?! sign me up!

    1. Awww thank you!!! He is so fun to be around 🙂 And how fun!! I love Chicago!! Enjoy it! And I know!! NYC has been so warm, I am not complaining one bit 😉 Merry Christmas!!! xoxo

  40. Omg, Atticus’ face with those trains is the cutest thing I have ever seen! Bryant park is so amazing this time of year! I love all the shops and the Christmas love all around. I may be biased but NYC is one of the most magical places to be for the holidays.
    Ps love your hair! I am overdue for a trim myself lol
