SWIMSUIT: Salinas (ON SALE! Code BIGEVENT16) // BLACK SHORTS: Evil Twin // FLORAL DRESS: Show Me Your Mumu (also love this one and this one) // SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker 

ROSIE’S LEGGINGS: Mini Rodini (on sale) // A’S SWIMSUIT: Mini Boden

Okay I think it is very apparent that I am obsessed with swimsuits. Seriously…. I pride myself on my collection of one pieces! I love them so much ha! So anyways – a bunch of my favorite swimsuits from Shopbop are on sale!!! You can get 15% off orders $250+, 20% off orders $500+, 25% off orders $1000+ with code BIGEVENT16 ! Which is really good because so many swimsuits are so expensive now! I am working on a post to show you guys swimsuits $50 and under (im shooting that on our next vacation) but in the mean time .. these are amazing options you can snag on sale. I have found when I get quality swimsuits they last years – I have a Mara Hoffman swimsuit that I splurged on when I had little to no money in college and it is still in great condition 5 years later – I am still obsessed with the straps in the back!! I have worn that thing SO many times! Also wanted to tell you guys to rinse your expensive swimsuits in sink water after you swim in chlorine – never leave your nice swimsuits to dry after swimming in the pool! I am convinced it makes them fade and get all worn out quicker.

I know I have said this before but really sitting on the beach at sunset with a breeze is my absolute favorite thing on the planet! As I am sure it is many other’s but it is just tooooo good ugh! Cant wait to go back.

  1. Love love love everything you! Your blog is so amazing! Love all of your cute sunglasses you always have. Your such an inspiration!
    God bless,

  2. I love you blog Amber! You have a beautiful style and family :), I was just wondering if you ever get your extensions wet, as that was what it looked like in one of the photos!
    Just wondering what your thoughts were on wearing extensions at the beach like that :)!

    1. Thank you Katie!! I appreciate that 🙂 And I try to not get them wet but sometimes it’s hard to avoid sometimes. But if I wear them down to the beach, I don’t plan on getting in the water and if I do, I will take them out.

      I am going to link my “extension 101” post below for you. xo

  3. Looks like you guys had so much fun! Love seeing all of Rosie’s outfits! I have a little girl the same age. Would you mind sharing where Rosie’s top is from? Thanks so much

  4. Hi amber! I love your blog! I have a baby the same age as Rosie and we are planning our first beach trip! Who makes the sling you are wearing on the beach in these photos? Any first time airplane tips? Thanks!

  5. Hey Amber!
    LOVE following your blog! I’m sure someone has already asked, but what size swimsuit do you wear at Anthropologie? Unfortunately, we do not have one close to where I live, so I have to order online! I think we have pretty close to the same body type.
    Thank you!

  6. Can’t wait for the $50 under swimsuits!! They are so hard to find!

  7. I’m a fairly new IG follower and love all your braid tutorials and style! I’m another young mom in my 20s (pregnant with my 4th!) and I’m wondering if you have any recommendations for cute maternity swimsuits ( or non-maternity that would work with a growing belly)? This will be my fourth time being pregnant over the summer and I still have yet to purchase a maternity swimsuit that I love… I usually just end up wearing my two pieces till the very end haha 🙂 thank you! @hforeste on IG <3

    1. Hi love!! So glad you are following along now 🙂 And as far as maternity swim swear, I love Nordstrom’s and Target’s selection! And I am the same way! I always wear my bikinis because I hate spending money on a maternity swimsuit that I won’t wear that long haha! Anyway, I hope that helps and congrats!! xoxo

  8. I love how much you post on your snap chat stories and on your blog. I feel like if I were to ever meet you guys, I would be so familiar with you all! Your family is absolutely darling, and I almost died laughing at A’s face going down the slide! Thank you so much for sharing your cute life with all of us. xoxo

  9. Amber! I’m sure you’ve answered this question one thousand times…but I am always so impressed by your photos and the quality/editing of them! What specifics camera do you use and how do you edit them? The color and lighting is always AHMAZING!

    1. Thank you so much!! I appreciate that. I use a canon 5d mark iii and I use a program called Lightroom to edit them 🙂

      1. I was going to ask a similar question! Haha do you use any presets? Because your photographs are phenomenal!! I’m sure it helps having such beautiful subjects (I.e. You, David + the kids)

  10. You look like you had such a wonderful time!!! I love all these picture and i hope to make it to mexcio one day!!! Im planning on coming to new york this summer which I’m excited about!!!

  13. You look AMAZING in all your swim suits! So jealous. I love your family so much! Just through your pictures I can see how much fun you guys have…and what baby doesn’t like being asked, jealous of that too ????.OH MY GOODNESS ROSIE IS GROWING UP WAY TO FAST!!!! I can’t believe it’s been almost four months! It mskes me want to cry.
    I also look up to you because you don’t let having not only a new born but a 20 month old stop you from going places! All of you are what I hope to have some time in the future ????

    1. Thank you so much!! I am obviously obsessed with swim suits haha! And aww you are so sweet!! She is such a little doll, we adore her!! She really has been getting so big! I can’t believe it how fast time has gone 🙁 Thank you again for the comment, you made my day!!!! xo

  17. Hi Amber! Thank you for proving that one piece suits can be pretty too! After 3 kids (including twins) I can’t wear bikinis anymore.

    1. Haha it was hilarious!! He was so scared yet loved it!! Thanks for reading 🙂

  18. LOOOOOOOOOVE the feeling to all your photos. Does David use a filter when shooting or is there a trick you guys would be willing to share for his workflow in post. Simply obsessed

    1. Thank you so much!! I love hearing that 🙂 And we use a program called Lightroom to edit them. xo

  19. It’s not fair at how often you can go on vacation, especially with a baby.

  20. Love all of these! The shots of david with rosie are especially tender! daddy daughter love! have you guys done a photo editing post before?! i would love to know your process

    1. Aww thank you!! I love those ones too 🙂 And we haven’t done one before, but we may in the future! Thanks for the suggestion!! 🙂

  21. I really enjoy your pics guys, I love photography and I really appreciate the quality of your shots as well as the tenderness coming out of so many of them. Well done to David and yourself for doing this so well. Atticus is always a little treasure, such a happy little chap and Rosie Belle is adorable. The sight of a baby always makes me melt (and I have had 3 of them!)….Seems like you guys had a really relaxing time in Mexico, I have to say I could really do with a little escape from glum London, it’s been so grey and cold lately:( At least, your posts give me a little virtual escape;) Lots of love to you 4, Julie

  22. You have such great taste when it comes to picking out cute swimsuits Amber!!! When I saw that neon green suit you were wearing in another recent post I was inspired to go find a cute one-piece for myself! 🙂 Thanks for showing that wearing modest swim suits can be really cute and fashion forward! You’ve inspired me 🙂

  23. Amber,
    Where did you go to school? What was your major?
    Love your blog!


  24. Seriously love reading all your posts!! Youve actually inspired me to start blogging … Check out my little blog if you have time:

  25. I absolutely love your swimsuit! I have the hardest time finding flattering one pieces, but you look amazing in all of them! Shop Stevie is one of my new favorite places to shop. She really does have the cutest stuff, especially dresses! 🙂

  26. You take such beautiful photos! What camera do you use, or is it GoPro? Love following your beautiful family <3

  27. Omg!!! These are the most adorable pictures ever!! Of course the greatest one is A going down the slide, so cute!!! He seems like such a happy kid, all the time!! Great post, favourite one yet! xxxx

  28. OMG! A is so cute!!! He is just like my boy. He doesn’t stand clothes or diapers. Not cool when he poops hahahaaa
    Looking foward to seeing that under 50 list!!

  29. My son loves to be naked too, so cute!

  30. Those lounge chairs look like a little slice of heaven! And seriously, you and your husband have to be the world’s most attractive couple. To have had two little ones, you look amazing. But I agree that one pieces are perfect. It used to be only the older women that wore them, but they are becoming more and more in style and thankfully designers are making them more flattering for all body types.

  31. Atticus’ face down the slide – hahaha! Adorable as always.

  32. Such lovely pictures! Makes me want to get tickets and fly to a sunny destination. I can definitely see that you guys are having a great time. Thanks for sharing these precious moments. In love with your gorgeous bathing suite. Maybe something I should try also 🙂

  33. You are definitely making me want to buy a swimsuit, haha! Atticus’ face is just too funny when he’s going down the slide!! Love that photo of David kissing Rosie. Too cute.

  35. I’m from Germany and i love you and your family so much, You are my role model! The pictures are so good…so I search a good photoshop. My question is , what kind of image editing application you use?

  36. If you love Cancun and Isla, there is a resort that does time shares and you can block out a few weeks a year for your suite! Its called the Grand Mayan, and the one in Cancun is the Grand Mayan, Riviera Maya. I stayed there last summer went to Isla aswell. It was amazing!

  37. Just wanted to send a short message to say that I love your blog. I dont follow any other bloggers, but I found you on instagram and now love seeing the adorable pictures of you and your fam. All the best!

  38. Love the colorful pieces in here! Being from NY, it can be all too easy to reach for darker clothes but this is inspiring! Love colorful swimsuits, especially ones like these where you can custom pick out your reversible colors !

  39. I loveee you and your family! I would like to know your routine all day, because i think that you are very organized! And I would like to know with what do you take your photos? And what objective do you use for the canon camera.

  40. Amber! So I HAVE TO TELL YOU, I have been checking out your suggestions for clothing for pretty much a year now, and like every day I get the urge to buy something, and every day I question my wallet’s capacity. But OMG OMG OMG, I have to tell you, from this bathing suit post and going through some of the one-pieces on SB, I came across something I have ALWAYS WISHED FOR! Ready? An ADJUSTABLE, NICELY COVERED BOTTOM, LOW NECKLINE, FLATTERING bathing suit for my size. Guess what? I JUST PURCHASED THE LAST SIZE 4 LEFT(i’m 5’0″, 105lb, almond brown skin) with THIS BEAUTY that PERFECTLY FITS THAT DESCRIPTION: I cannot wait! I cannot wait!! ALSO, in honor of loving your looks, I ALSO purchased a classic piece that adorns your outfits very often! AN OVERSIZED KAREN WALKER SUNGLASSES! I just HAD to tell you that I took the plunge, and I think your sentence about owning a nice piece for many years was what totally did it! Eeeek! I hope you can feel the excitement reaching through the screen!! Thank you for inspiring me!

  41. Beautiful photos captured! May I ask what camera was used to take these and the lens that you use? thanks so much!

  42. Would love to know where David gets more of his clothes! Ask him to tag more in his insta posts please!!!!!!

    1. That’s a great idea! Thanks Katie!! He loves Zara by the way 🙂

  43. Atticus an Rosie are just the cutest babies eveeer!! Every post i’m more in love with your blog and with you guys 😉 You’re pictures are just amazing (i wish i could put here a heart emoji haha). Lots of love from Spain 😉
