It is crazy that between here and New York it is 6 hours different! Most of our work emails come from East Coast so I have to wake up early to make sure I am not behind on anything! But also that means that when I publish ‘morning’ blog posts for me they are afternoon or evening blog posts for a lot of you!

One of our favorite things to do is to just start driving around the island and stop when we see something we want to see! Sometimes we stop at new little cafes or fruit stands and sometimes we stop when we see a swing on the beach. Its sooo fun 🙂 We found this cute bistro and stopped to get a snack!

The Great sent me some of their dresses to try – I hadn’t realized that I already had a couple of their dresses. Do you guys remember that long grey dress that knots at the bottom (except mine has sleeves) that I have worn a dozen times on here? Maybe not but its the same brand. Sometimes I don’t pay attention to brand names when I order from Nordstrom or Shopbop. But anyways, their dresses are all incredibly comfy and I love them.

Also I am obsessed with this choker!!!!!

David and I are headed to see Beauty and the Beast tonight and I can’t wait!!!!

PS and yes my hair looks greasy here – it does all the time now it seems like, even when its clean. Just how it is with new island life I guess. Ya get some ya lose some! But sometimes I don’t mind the look of it so much!

  4. You’re such a pretty woman! I love the hairdband and i’m sooo sad the choker is sold out. For everyone that loves the choker but is too late to buy it, Forever21 has some cool gold chokers right now! Also one with gold stars. Amber, I look forward to your beautiful pictures every day!

  5. I love those sandals! I’ve been looking for a new sandal for this summer and knew you would have the cutest ones for the season. Funny how I come to “barefoot” blonde and end up with shoe inspo! LOL Last year I bought the gold Joie sandals that you have and loved them! I just found the black ones on super sale so I just recently ordered those. I might have to add these nude ones to my closet as well 😉

    oh, she’s lovely

  6. Love this fun laid back island look. These J Crew Sandals are amazing! And YESSS love this choker so much. My husband and I are planning a Hawaii trip this summer, so I will definitely be going back through ALL your blog posts to get inspired! Love this little area you found. So cute! ♡

  18. You know what I always think? (and tell myself) Hair that looks greasy, must be HEALTHY! Imperfection = Happy. I just love your carefree, happy posts so much Amber! Love, Lacey

  19. My hair gets like that with humidity, too! For everyone else in my family, their hair poofs up. For some reason, my goes flat and gets a weird texture to it. Don’t know what it is but I’m in the same boat!

    xo, Sofia

  20. I love your nail polish color! could you please tell me what it is? 🙂

  21. Hello. One of your followers told me you were looking for help with your nutrition. I am a functional medicine practitioner and believe I am just your person. Please check me out on Instagram @drdebbiebright – my work is being published internationally with Strength Matters and I am currently running a program with results so amazing that these patients are bringing me to tears. I would love to work with you!

  22. i love you so much amber! you and your family take the cutest pics ever!

  23. I like those shoes. Maybe you just need to wash your hair more there? I mean it’s getting exposed sand in the air, a lot of ocean water, etc.
