DRESS: Karen Kane // WEDGES: Schutz (absolutely LOVE these) // SUNGLASSES: Gentle Monster

Guys I couldn’t leave Palm Springs without going by the Saguaro hotel and it is amazzzzing! I love all the color in Palm Springs – its so good! After our hotel pit stop we drove to San Diego and went to the BEACH! Atticus is soaked in the photos because he runs straight into those waves without any caution haha – its totally scary. He only fell in the water while David was out there with him but he really would just run right out there and get taken out by a wave if we weren’t paying attention. I am super proud of him because he has been doing his somersaults that he learned in gym class all on his own. It is really crazy to me that he is only 3 months away from being two years old – how did that second year go by so quickly?? I really feel like we JUST had his 1st birthday party. And miss Rosie is at such a fun age – she loves to just play!! It is sooo fun trying to get her to laugh and finally figuring out something that she thinks is hilarious.

I wore this colorful dress which totally feels like summer to me. I love walking in my closet and seeing as much color as possible so it felt good to hang this sucker.

Hope you are all having a good day! I think we are going to take Atticus bowling today! xo

  3. I would love to know how you organize yourself closet. Love the dress 🙂

    1. Thanks so much!! And I will definitely be doing a closet reveal post soon 🙂

  4. Hey amber, I was reading through comments trying to find out what camera/equipment and editing you use for your pictures and noticed that you had told a lot of people there would be an equipment post coming soon (in 2015). I have been trying to look it up and wondered if somehow I had missed it and just can’t locate it! Any who, I was wondering if you could tell me what equipment and editing software you use for your photos! Thanks so much!!

    1. Hi Kate!! Yes, you are right, I had planned on doing a photo equipment post but decided not to. I use a canon 5d mark iii camera and I edit my pictures using a program called Lightroom. I hope that helps!!

  14. Hi Amber!
    I really love this dress: it reminds me a dress which Kate Middleton wore just after gaving birth to her second Child. And I really love the post about baby wearing: I have a violet baby wrap and I still using it with my 16 months baby girl: we love it! I have a question: do you make wax for your legs?

  32. Hi Amber your family looks like a dream … congratuations, God bless you always… kisses

  33. OMG first of all, The Saguaro has been on my bucket list for a while now, so cool that you stopped by! Also, those wedges are SO amazing (they are now on my closet bucket list!!)

    So funny you mention Atticus running out into the waves… My son does the SAME thing, it is both terrifying and hilarious! Beach days are never very relaxing for us, but they are really fun!

    Love all these colorful cheery pics!

  34. Hello Amber, my name is Hannah Call. I am 19 turning 20 and live in Utah. I am attending school at Salt Lake Community College and I am in the fashion merchandising program. I just have a quick question for you, and I know you didn’t post anything about this, but I had to ask. This summer I am planning to live in New York. I have been looking for fashion internships or nanny jobs for a while and thought I would ask you if you needed any help with blogging, errands, cleaning, or with taking care of your kids when either work gets busy or you need a night out. I worked at a daycare for a year, I loved working with the kids, and learned so much about child care. I am hardworking, honest, energetic, caring, and have a positive attitude. You are seriously the cutest blogger and mom, I would be so happy helping you with anything. If you could get back to me as soon as you can that would be great. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you have an amazing day! Oh and here is my Instagram account if you would like to take a look and to learn a little bit more about me. It is hannahcall13 also my email is

  35. OMG I love your nail and toe nail polish!!! What brand and color is it?!

  36. Love!! Your hair and outfit is gorge! Which beach did you go to? We’re headed to San Diego this summer, and a good beach is always in the equation! And I totally know what you mean. My baby just turned 5 yesterday. Ugh! ???? Xo

  37. This dress is so cute and the perfect swim cover-up! And those wedges are so fun! I can see why you wanted to stay there. My little girl is pretty fearless when it comes to water too and it terrifies me. She is 2 and I feel like it is time for swimming lessons ha!

  38. hey amber!! I can’t find the wedges even with the link. Am I just missing them or are they not avalible anymore?

    1. They are the Mella wedge, you can find them on the Shultz website. 🙂

  39. I am so jealous! I would love to have gone there… I think color makes everything so fun and more welcoming 🙂 I am waiting for the day when I can actually go to the beach again and wear dresses and not be freezing. Oh my goodness is the weather messing with us (I live in CT)… not impressed at all 🙁

  40. Love hearing about the growth of your kids. Atticus’ habit to run into the water would also terrify me lmao. And as much as it would tire me out to keep entertaining children, it probably would be fun trying to make a kid laugh.
