We’re finally headed back home today and I must say, i’m pretty excited. We spent the last few days of our trip in San Francisco, which was the perfect way to finish it off. Although I always feel like the last few days of any of our trips, I just want to relax and be lazy. David got to eat crab/lobster sandwiches for pretty much every meal and Atticus loved strolling up and down the piers. We always love coming here. It was one of the first trips we took after we got Married. One weekend we just got in the car spontaneously and drove. We were so poor at the time, we actually slept in the car half way there (which I may or may not have already shared, but NOT recommended, haha.)  Without a baby or dog though, it was a breeze.

I am thee worst packer on the planet. I hate packing so so so so so much. I don’t even know why but it is the most annoying thing to me and its probably because i do it so often. Anything I have that I know I can rewear with multiple outfits I make sure to bring. This trip it was these Joie sandals I got from Nordstrom! I wore them with almost every outfit – which I am sure you may have noticed since I am wearing them in my last three posts. ha. But they go with everything and they are so comfy! They are hands down my favorite sandals of the season. I also love that since they are gold they give each outfit something fun. Nordstrom has tons of cute sandals for spring and summer – I am obsessed with these and as well.

Have a good day!!

    1. Thank you Alicia!! That is so nice of you to say!! And unfortunately I got my nails done at a salon so I don’t know the nail color 🙁 The closest color I can find to it is Essie in Bazooka. Thanks for reading love!!

  5. I am in love with this outfit!! Especially the sunglasses! Can I ask what they are called? I saw they were from nordstrom and I went to the website and could not find them!! Thanks!!

    1. Thanks so much Claire!! The sunglasses are Quay Eyewear. I hope that helps!! xo

  6. So happy you had a great time Amber!!!! You looked so comfy but yet a Beauty anyway you look… Get some rest now & enjoy being home!

    1. Thank you Michelle!! So kind of you!! I definitely love comfy yet stylish looks best!! xo

  7. haha!! this story made me happy about you guys sleeping in your car on the way when you first got married! Makes me wanna be adventurous and do the same!! I love how many trips you guys take– my bf bought me a trip for Christmas this year, and I noticed a while back on a post you said that that’s what you guys do for each other as presents every year, and I LOVE the idea– I hope you don’t mind if I try that in my relationship because it seems like such a great tradition to have!! in other news we’re going to SF in May and I neeed to get a pair of these sandals for that trip- they look SO comfy, which is always a must for me being in SF (or NY for that matter!) All these pictures are making me so excited for our trip!! Ready to be back in my City by the Bay!!

    1. Haha I am glad someone got a laugh out of it 🙂 Looking back I can’t believe we did that!!! Young and adventurous for sure! And are you serious?! How fun!!! What a sweet boyfriend!! You totally should do the tradition!! I am flattered you like it 🙂 We love it because we would rather spend our money on a fun vacation/experiences together rather than temporary material things! If that makes sense?! Have a blast in SF!!! Which I know you will because it’s amazing!! The sandals were perfect for walking around, I am glad you like them! Thanks for your sweet comment Lauren!! Love ya! xo

  8. I absolutely hate packing, and am known for throwing everything into a bag 10 minutes before leaving for the airport. Procrastination at its finest.

    1. Haha seriously!! That sounds like me!! 😉 Thanks for reading Erika!!

    1. Thanks so much!! I am happy to hear you like it!! Lots of love to you! xo

  9. Hi:))))
    BEAUTIFUL..can you please tell me what camera and lens you use, your photos are AMAZING!

    1. Hi!! I use a canon 5d mark iii with a 24-70 2.8 lens 🙂 And thank you, such a nice compliment!! xo

    1. Haha seriously!! Like I wore them every day oops 🙂 I am glad you like them!! Thanks love! xo

  10. Coming home from traveling is the BEST feeling in the world! haha. Although, I don’t travel nearly as much as you, so I can only imagine how excited you must be! Nothing like home sweet home 🙂

    1. It really is!!! Ahh so happy to be home 🙂 Thanks for reading and for your comment Hayley!! xo

    1. Thanks Laura!! I love them!! And I agree, San Fran is one of a kind!! xo

  11. Thank you for almost always including a similar but cheaper version! It’s very thoughtful to those of us who don’t want to splurge! That’s why you’re my favorite blogger xoxo

    1. Of course!! I try my best to do that, so thank you!! I appreciate the positive feedback!! You’re so sweet!! xoxo

  12. I am totally reliving the trip I took here in December with the family I nanny for. The ONLY thing worse than packing is unpacking haha. Also thank you for replying on my inquiry to give you a sign 🙂 I totally guessed it would be a long shot! I figure if 5284534 companies ask to send you something and you accepted them all, you would have to buy a new house to fit everything inside. Also- I love your cousins Briette & Amelia Tenny. I went to grade school-college with Briette and people would always get us confused because apparently we look alike. Small world!


    1. How fun that you got to go with them!! Don’t you just love San Fran?! Amazing!! Oh my gosh haha yes!!! Unpacking might just be worse 🙁 And again, I appreciate you reaching out to me!! So thank you! And no way?! How crazy!! I love the my Tenney cousins!! So fun you know them too!! 🙂 xo

  13. Yesss, glad to hear about another bloggers humble starts! I am flat out broke throughout most of my existence, and similar actions take place when I travel. Hey, it’s all a part of the adventure though, isn’t it? and if you can’t dream of more luxurious trips in the future (aka if I already had them now), there’d be nothing to look forward to 🙂


    1. Yes exactly!!! I love your insight on this!! It totally is all in the adventure!! David and I were young and poor but now when we go on trips we appreciate the little things like a nice hotel so much more! 🙂 Thanks for reading Julia!! xo

    1. Thanks Olivia!! I am happy you like it!! I agree, perfect for the warmer weather coming!! xo

    1. Aww thanks love!! I appreciate it!! San Fran is beautiful so it made it easy 🙂

  14. I love these sandals! So cute, and they can go with so many outfits!! I remember when you posted about going to Cali and sleeping in the car! I thought you guys were crazy, but awesome at the same time haha!

    1. Thank you Rachel!! I agree, they are so versatile!! I love it! Haha we were totally crazy!! It’s fun to look back and laugh at it now 😉 Thanks for reading love!!

  15. Do you have any suggestions on growing out hair? Mine was probably as long as yours back in September. But because my hair is ridiculously thick it and probably the last 3 inches were completely dead my hair dresser cut it to my shoulders :'( I had said “just below” and she went a little scissor happy then added some layers for “movement” which just made it look even shorter so now I’m trying to grow it back out. In six months it’s grown about 1.5 inches. Do you have any tips or tricks for getting long hair quick? Lol I miss mine so much so does my hubby haha

    1. Thank you so much!! They have definitely been on repeat for me 🙂 Glad you like them!! And yes, we had a wonderful time!! xo

  16. Hahaha I was thinking how much I loved your sandals and then I read they were gold and went like: WHAT? I just checked all the photos again… has anyone else been seeing them silver this whole time?
    SF looks like a great city to visit someday! xx


    1. Haha I know what you mean!!! It’s definitely like a silvery gold color!! 🙂 And San Fran is amazing, definitely add it to your must-see list!! xo

  17. This looks like such a lovely place! Your dress really suits you by the way, and your hair is wonderful, I’ve been wanting to try a double plait like that for ages!

    1. It was beautiful!! And thank you so much Hannah!! That is too nice of you 🙂 Try it out!! xo

  18. Loving the summery-ness of these photos with the flowy dress, the boats, and the water! Love the story of sleeping in the car, it’s memories like those that stick with you forever! Love it. Have a safe trip home! XO, Beth.

    1. Total summer dress for sure!! And yes totally, we love to look back and remember little things like that 🙂 Now David and I appreciate when we have a nice place to stay on trips SO much more now 😉 We are happy to be home!! Love ya Beth!! xo

  19. I love SF! Such a fun and bustling city. My husband and I just eat and stroll the city, so glad you had a good time! I love the breeziness of this dress, so California! And again, loving the shoes – I’m going to have to get a pair! Have a safe trip home!

  20. I’ve never been to San Francisco (or anywhere on the west coast for that matter) but I plan to very soon. Your dress is adorable and so are the shoes! I’m taking a trip to VA soon and am trying to desparatley find more shift type dresses like that because they are so easy to pack!

  21. That dress is beautiful! And you look gorgeous 🙂 Lovely hair as always! I’m constantly trying to copy some of your hair style but mine is still too short, but in some months maybe I’ll be able to get something somewhat similar to your amazing hairstyles hahah!
    Lots of love!
