As you know we were just in Palm Springs with Target checking out their new swim assortment, so today I am showing you four looks from our trip! Each features some of the new Target swim/summer pieces from across the collection’s four major trends:  Tropical/Tribal, Americana, Boho and Sport.

We stayed at the Parker hotel and it was unreal. If you ever have a chance to go, you definitely need to! The décor is fabulous and the grounds are stunning – they have the most amazing pool, lemonade stand, bikes, hammocks, and more. Target threw the prettiest dinners at the hotel and a pool party at this amazing home in Palm Springs. The home is supposedly LeonardoDiCaprio’s vacation home.. and it was soo nice. They had synchronized swimmers wearing Target swimsuits come do THREE back to back performances and it was crazy impressive.. like they smiled the ENTIRE time!!! The whole time. It brought back my glory days of doingsynchro classes in Arizona ;) Anytime we get in the pool I pretend to be a synchronized swimmer, I think it is soo cool.

Anyways, about these swimsuits.. I love a good one piece and I absolutely LOVVVE all of the new swimsuits they have this summer. Any that have back detail I instantly love, and I was so excited to see all of the great designs and surprising little details across the collection and each of the four major trends. I can never leave Target without exploring every department, it is like a hobby of mine haha! Here are all of the links to each look I wore…

  1. Beautiful looks Amber!! I love your pigtail buns, have to try that soon 🙂 Can you tell me what size the swimsuit from look 4 is on you? I’m 5’11” and ordered a medium and it is wedgie city!! One pieces are tough for tall girls! I know you’re tall too so I was wondering what size worked on you. Thank you!

  2. I am so jealous of your braid in the first look. Did you have extensions in, or is your natural hair just that gorgeously thick?

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE your photos!!! Did you use your 24-70mm lens for the 3 photos in this blog post?

  4. Your hair is goals Amber!! I love Target- their prices are awesome 🙂 You are one of my favourite bloggers!
    Check out my blog 🙂

  5. I love this post! Everything is in my price range! I love Target! Thank you so much for all these adorable ideas!
    Please do more posts like these :)! You are absolutely flawless!

  7. Hi amber! I am going on a month long vacation to Europe with my 10 month old baby. I know you traveled with baby A. What are some tips you can give especially for the plane ride!?

  8. Love this post!! Currently shopping on Target now! Most likely going to purchase the olive swimsuit!! 🙂 Follow you on insta! Absolutely love your blog! Can’t wait to read more!~

  9. Amber, you look so adorable in the picture where you’re at the table with the drink and the buns! Palm Springs looks like a ton of fun! Hope you and your family have a nice week!

  10. Oh my gosh I’ve been so busy that I’m behind on your blog posts & I ABSOLUTELY love this post!!! I love every look, but particularly the navy blue zig-zag stripe suit with navy blue sandals & jean overall shorts!! Jean overall shorts were really popular when I was in jr high back in the 90s …love the look! I love the one piece suits & love that they’re from Target …how awesome!! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

    1. Yay!! I am so glad you liked it!! Thank you Emily!! 🙂 And haha same!! I totally had a pair like this back in the end! Funny how they are popular again 😉

  11. Love all of these fun looks. Could you get any more cute?? Or any more gorgeous?? You are simply stunning, beautiful inside and out. I’m unashamed to call you one of my role models! haha 🙂 xoxo

    1. Thank you babe!! You are seriously too nice!! So glad you like those looks 🙂 Thanks for making my day!! Love ya! xo

    1. Thank you babe!! You are too nice! And yes! Get to Target ASAP 😉 xo

  12. So fun! I love that these are all from Target and are so cute and affordable. Looks like you guys had a blast!

    1. Right?! I definitely can’t choose a favorite! So glad you like them 🙂

  13. You look amazing in all these photos! I love the jean overalls and your hair in that picture. I am going to try to recreate your hairstyle and I wanted to get the overalls. Question – I am tall like you. I find a lot of overalls are not long enough and they ride up. Were these long enough for us tall girls. (It looks like you can adjust the straps.) I just love that whole third look – way too cute!!

    1. Thank you so much!! That is too nice of you 🙂 And yay! So glad you liked that look! And I know what you mean about them riding up but these were just fine. I hope that helps!! xo

  14. I’ve always loved the Parker! Your pictures make me want to book a trip to Palm Springs right now. This Target collection is really cute also! <3


    1. We loved Palm Springs!! We will definitely be going back 🙂 And yay! Glad you love the suits too!!

  15. Amber, being a visual guy with a penchant for the unique and personal sensibilities of an environment, I love how you are amping up the quality and stylization of the photos, singular perspectives that are artistic and never-predictable. I am very excited as I follow Barefoot Blonde and see where your road takes you. W

  16. Hi Amber❤︎

    1. Thank you so much!! Glad you like the swimsuits I chose 🙂 And thanks so much for following along over the years, that makes me happy to hear!

  19. Hey Amber I absolutely love your blog. Very inspired by you! Loving the space buns in this post. And Atticus is the cutest!

    If you don’t mind me asking, What len’s do you use? I have the 85mm 1.2 and I found that works best for portraits. What would you suggest for the best all around lens?

    Wishing you and your family all the blessings 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Christina!! That means so much to me! I am so glad you are following along 🙂 And most typically I use my 24-70mm lens. But I also use a 50mm, 20mm and 200mm. I hope that helps!!

  20. I can’t believe all these swimsuits are from Target! I’m in love with the olive green swismuit in the first picture and will probably have to get it for myself! I always love a cute one-piece!


  21. Hello from France! it’s such a pleasure to read your blog. Pics are really beautiful. I really love the simplicity and the family spirit that comes from your blog ! Thank you for sharing !

    1. Thank you!! Glad you liked the post 🙂 Have a great time in Palm Springs!!

  25. Ok, I am going to Target to buy those denim overalls TODAY!!! I used to have a pair from UCB that I loved so I wore them till they fell apart. Your hair looks so cutely gorgeous in that look! Thanks for the post and the inspiration, as always! P.S. I also used to do synchronized swimming! I think it’s just the most beautiful sport ever and can’t wait for my one year old daughter to pick up where I left off one day 🙂 xoxo Maggie

    1. Totally bought the overalls yesterday! Was surprised how good quality the denim was! Sturdy, not a cheap thin material… I’m loving these. Wasn’t sure whether to get XS or S but went with an S for a more loose look. Didn’t want the shorts to be tight at the thighs.. Can’t wait to wear them out to the playground with my daughter today! Thanks for the inspiration! xoxo

    2. YAY!! So glad you got a pair!! So cute huh?! I love them!! Thanks for reading and for the comment Maggie!! xo

    1. Thank you babe!! And I know what you mean, it can be tricky! Maybe I will do a little tutorial for it 🙂

  27. LOVING the fourth look! You can’t beat the prices on Target bathing suits. A girl I went through school with is actually the middle girl in your photo of the synchronized swimmers ha! Kinda cool. Hope you guys had an awesome time, this hotel looks amazing!


    1. Thanks so much Annie!! And I agree! You can’t beat it 🙂 And no way?! That is so cool!! They were amazing!! So fun to watch.

  31. Hi! I always love your posts! You and your kids are too cute. I was wondering g what type of fake eyelashes you use because I have prom in a few weeks and need some good ones? Also do you have any tricks for getting your curls to stay in your hair?

    1. Thank you so much!! That means a lot to me 🙂 And I love to use Ardell Demi Lashes for when I apply them myself. But when I get them done professionally I use xo

      And for my curls, I like to use a light hairspray (I love the Moroccan Oil hairspray :))
