MY DRESS: 3.1 Phillip Lim (snagged 75% off in store) // ROSIE’S DRESS: Ralph Lauren // A’S SEERSUCKER SUIT: Ralph Lauren (jacket here, pants here – ordered size down on pants)

While we had all of our family in town we did a special blessing for Rosie at our church! She wore this really pretty Ralph Lauren dress that I splurged on because I am hoping she will want to bless her daughter in it someday. Atticus was absolutely killing me in his little seersucker suit!! I bought him some little loafers to go with it, and I even ordered a size up because they looked kinda small. They should have fit but his feet are too chubby for them haha! So he wore little sneakers. I kept telling myself.. its cute with sneakers riiiight?? Haha 🙂 For some reason when the suit gets wet it looks yellow so after he was done with his usual ‘playing in the drinking fountains at church for a solid 30 min’ I was worried I thought his suit was stained! Luckily it was just water. This suit is another thing I want to save for him to give to his kids one day. My mom saved certain pieces from when we were little and I think its so fun. My little nephew, Owen, was sitting next to me at church and kept looking at her smiling saying “she is sooo pretty! her blue eyes! I think my eyes are purple. She is soo so so so so cute. Look at her!” it was melting me. We have the sweetest nieces and nephews and I am so glad they were there for her special day! David did the blessing and he said she was smiling the whole time. We didn’t get a family photo – I literally debated getting back in that dress and getting everyone ready to take one because how did we forget a family photo?! I dont know but I am really glad she didn’t blow out in her dress (Atticus blew out in his on his blessing day and he was nakey the rest of the time because mama forgot spare clothes!). Way to go Rosie girl!!!!

  1. Hi Amber! I happened to have stumbled onto your blog and these incredible pictures! You and your family are beautiful! Would you mind sharing where you got your dress and the RL baptism dress? I have been looking for something white and elegant for me and your dress is perfect! Thank you so much in advance 🙂

  2. Amber! I love your Instagram and have been reading through your blog lately. Come to find out you’re LDS! I had guessed, but never was sure. It’s so fun to follow your family, and then to find out you guys are members of the church made it even better! Beautiful family you have, and I love how you share just enough about the church without shoving it down people’s throats. Very tasteful. Thanks for always posting the cutest ideas and details of your life!

  3. Hi Amber!
    I have just been browsing through your blog and I had a thought I wanted to share with you regarding all the hating going on with the whole “you’re LDS” and “inmodest” thing. It’s actually refreshing for me to see someone like you who IS LDS yet you aren’t afraid to be yourself at the same time! I also admire how you still believe and support the CHURCH even though a small percentage of its MEMBERS are being cruel to you. It’s definitely true that gospel things are between you and the Lord, and I admire you for being strong enough to not take too much offense by the members that it makes you hateful towards the church. You seem like an honest, down to earth gal, and that is what the church and the world needs more of!

    Kind of random, but I just wanted to share. 🙂

    1. Hi Brooke!! Thanks so much for the sweet and genuine comment. I loved reading it and you totally made my day!! It can definitely be hurtful hearing such negative comments, but like you said, what matters it is my relationship with the Lord 🙂 Thank you again for the kind words!! xoxo

  4. I know I’m late but these pictures are so precious! Rosie looks so beautiful congratulations! And Atticus looks adorable as always! <3

  5. beautiful photos. i love the white dress. we’ve been waiting to dedicate our daughter since we moved to a new city when she was born. now that we’re connected with a church here, i may need to start thinking out an outfit to be ready for the next dedication. i’m hoping it lines up with her birthday, and maybe she can get a couple uses out of it.

    where is rosie’s headband from?

  6. Hi Amber, I just wanted to congratulate your family and little Rosie on her baby blessing! My daughter was blessed in the same dress I was blessed in, it was a very special to see her in my dress that I will cherish forever.

Lots of luv!!!

      1. Hi! LOVE your blog. I’m pregnant….38 weeks and your style inspired me so much. On another note though…I am obsessed with your leather couch. I love how deep it looks, like you could put feet up and relax. Who makes it and what is the style if you don’t mind me asking! xoxo

  17. Loved the photos!! I also had a blessing around Rosie’s age, and my mom kept my white dress until this day. I am pregnant with a baby boy, so will have to wait until the baby girl to use it. Definitely keep it the dress for Rosie’s daughter.

    1. Aww thank you Emily!! That is seriously so sweet of you 🙂 Thanks for following along!! xo

  31. Hi Amber! Oh my gosh! These photos are too cute for words! So happy for your family 🙂

    I was browsing through your blog the other day looking for hair tips and came across a post where you had this dress on with watermelons on it and I instantly fell in love with this dress! I clicked on the link you had from where you got the dress and they don’t have it anymore (being that blog post was a little old) I am so upset because I loved it so much! I have a slight obsession with dresses haha but what girl doesn’t 🙂 do you have any ideas on where I could find that dress? I would really appreciate your help! xoxo

  32. You have the most beautiful perfect family I have ever seen! I love reading your blog its so inspiring and adorable. I was wondering what you use to edit your photos?? 🙂 xoxo

    1. Thank you so much!! That means so much to me 🙂 We are far from perfect I promise! But I appreciate your sweet words! And I use a program called Lightroom to edit my pictures! xo

  33. Rosie looks so beautiful! Blessing days are so special. 🙂 My little girl Rosalie actually blew out in her dress on her blessing day, but thankfully I caught it in time so she just got her onesie stained. We had sacrament last so I am not sure why I had her in the dress the whole day at church ha. Live and learn I guess! 😉

    1. Thank you Rachel!! It really was so amazing 🙂 And no way?! How funny! Nice job saving the dress 😉 xoxo

  34. How beautiful <3 I love the idea of saving a few of the more special outfits for your children's children someday. I definitely want to do that! Rosie looks absolutely perfect in her blessing dress, and Atticus is as cute as ever! xoxo

    1. Thank you!! I am so glad you liked the post 🙂 Thanks for the kind words!! xo

  35. So so cute! I love seeing pictures of your littles!! I did have a question though.. I have been following your blog for so long now (it’s my fave ????????) and I know you said you didn’t get any stretch marks with Atticus but you saw some faint ones when you were pregnant with Rosie and were worried about how they would look after you had her. Soo my question, I had my baby around the same time you had Baby A and was lucky enough to not get stretch marks and now I’m also pregnant with my second baby and have been seeing faint lines and am kinda freaking out.. Did your lines get darker after you had her/what did you to for them/preventing them?

  36. Oh my goodness she looks so perfect, she’s such a cutie! And Atticus, look at that smile! Congratulations on the blessing! You have the sweetest family Amber!

  37. Oh my! These are sooo incredibly sweet! I love that your mom kept pieces to pass along and that you are keeping the tradition!!

  38. Gorgeous photos. I started reading your blog a few months ago and have become a huge fan. Thanks for sharing!

    Heather

  39. What a wonderful time to do it. Such a memorable moment. You both had the prettiest dresses! And A’s suit was so adorable.

    1. Aww thank you!! You are too sweet 🙂 And I know huh!? Hopefully I will have another little boy that can wear it again haha!

  40. It’s a really cute suit but Seersucker is for Summer months. Ralph Lauren offers beautiful wool herringbone suits that are appropriate for Winter. So does Janie and Jack…I love their Tartan blazers for toddlers.

  41. Beautiful pictures. You all look stunning. So beautiful that you could share this special moment with your family 🙂 and such a lovely thought that your children could give the special clothes to their children one day 🙂

  42. Oh my gosh your dress and your hair.. Soo beautiful!! And seriously Rosie and Atticus are the sweatest!!
    It must have been a very special day for you and your family 🙂
    My mom did the same with some babyclothes of mine and I love to look at those!! Such a cute tradition..

  44. Your hair looks AMAZING in these pictures! I’m so envious of your long locks!

    1. Thank you so much!! I appreciate the compliment 🙂 I love having this day documented! xo

  46. I adore seersucker on little boys!!! Can’t beat it! Such great photos! I’m so glad you all got to do a “blessing day” since everyone was in town..what a great memory! I saved clothing from my daughters special events and it’ll mean the world to her one day. ( She’s adopted from India!!! 😀 ) What a great tradition! Enjoy your day!

  47. Seriously beautiful! Congratulations to your family, she will certainly pass that dress on – what a special piece to have forever! PS – What camera/lens combo do you use? I currently use a Canon 7D with a 50mm lens, but am looking to upgrade, and your photos have such a great quality, I’d love to know, thanks love! xx

    1. Thank you Brooke!! 🙂 And I use a Canon 5d Mark iii with several lenses: 24-70, 20mm, 50mm, and 200mm. I hope that helps!! xo
