DRESS: Maggy London // SHOES: M. Gemi

So right before these pictures were taken I was on the side of the road on Central Park West with my stroller upside down as I was trying to get it to fold and it was stuck on something .. I was holding Atticus, the diaper bag, and a bag of his toys and a watermelon for the park while doing all of this. I must have looked pretty pathetic because a firetruck of firemen pulled over and three of them hopped out and said, “let us help you!” it was so nice of them I almost cried! It was such a busy day – one of those that you cant wait for your kid’s bedtime just because you want to sit down haha. It is so blazing hot in NYC it feels so good to throw on a dress and flats! I love this Maggy London dress and the fit of it. I have always been a fan of Maggy London since high school! She has some super cute new arrivals – below are some of my favorites!!

PS I promise I still have a bump! Baby girl is healthy, this dress just hides it freakishly well 🙂

    1. Thanks so much love!! I was so nervous to do the pink, but I honestly love it!! It’s a fun change 🙂 xox

  1. The striped pattern on the dress is really unique and cool, as is the hair color. Looks like a great time with your beautiful baby


  2. Hi Amber!

    I have been following you (on every social media platform) for quite some time now and I am OBSESSED with your life! Becoming a frequent follower of many blogs, I find myself wondering if I should take the plunge and start my own. My mother always tells me I should but I see so many girls from my high school and college struggling to get their blogs started. Do you have an tips to recommend? Any feedback would be amazing!


    1. First of all, thank you so much for following along Kaura!! That is so nice to hear!! I appreciate the love and support!! And if you email me, I will send you some helpful tips to get started!! xoxo

  3. Hahahah that is too darn funny! I really wish you could have gotten pictures of that lol! Btw, I would have stopped and helped you too :)!
    Love your hair, I just noticed it! Very pretty! How are you feeling? Hope all is going well for you and your little fam 🙂

    1. Haha it really was such a funny sight 🙂 too funny!! And aww thanks so much Amanda!! That is so nice of you!! I have been feeling really good luckily! Thanks so much for checking! I appreciate it! xo

  4. I’m due with my second (another boy) first of November so I had to have this dress! You made it look so glamorous and effortless! To be pregnant and all while caring for a toddler! Anyway can you give me the brand of romper A is wearing? Not only do I follow your trends I also love what Atticut wears! Shopping for boys isn’t that great.

  5. OMG! your hair!! is pink ish…. LOVE IT!!! how??? how did you did that???
    these should be your next tutorial!! please!!!
    lovelly and funny story hahaha

    1. Crazy huh?! I was so nervous to get it colored ahh!! I got it done at a salon!! It is temporary 🙂 Thanks for reading love!! xo

    1. Oh my gosh you are too cute!! Such a nice compliment 😉 Thank you babe!!

  6. I get the point of sponsored posts or videos but they annoy me a lot. Yours however are always thoughtful and the clothes you show are gorgeous! Also I used to hate pink highlights but yours are a milder colour and it really suits you! I don’t know how you make everything seem so much better!

    1. Thank you so much for the awesome feedback, I appreciate it so much!! I only work with companies and products that I love so I am glad that comes through a little bit 🙂 I am glad you like the hair too!! I was so nervous to do it but I ended up liking it 🙂 It will eventually fade but it is always fun for a change!! xo

  7. i love your blog… especially how real you are about life! Atticus and Baby girl are so blessed to have such a wonderful momma and i’m sure visa versa:)

    is the pink a wash out or permanent? i have natural, really blonde hair and i’m nervous that a wash out won’t actually wash out… my hair was blue for a few weeks after attempting to Kool-Aid it with a friend in elementary school.

    i loved your story sooo funny! something similar happened to me once… i was helping my sister at Nordstrom with her stroller… she was holding my niece and i had the empty stroller… at the very top of the escalator, i forgot to hold up the wheel and it fell down that escalator… thankfully it was empty, but EVERYTHING fell out… the shopping bags we had, snacks, diapers, and the milk bottles were rolling at the bottom of the escalator… we could not stop laughing…

    1. You are soo sweet!! WOW! Thank you love! You totally just brightened my day 🙂 And the pink is temporary!! So it will eventually wash out! I have heard of the Kool-Aid coloring too! If you are super blonde.. it may be more bright pink on you! But I would imagine it would eventually come out?! But I have no idea ahh! I was so nervous at first!! And HAHAH omg that story is hilarious!! Thanks for a good laugh 🙂 Thank goodness it was empty! What a fun memory to have 😉 xoxo

    1. They were such gentlemen!! It was so sweet!! And thanks so much! I am happy you like it 🙂 xo

    1. Thanks so much Angela!! And she is amazing!! I love working with her 🙂

  8. Oh my so nice! I love when people do random acts of kindness, seriously the smallest things go so far. I like praise anyone who stops to do something nice LOL I love this look on you and I am lovin the pink hair snippets I am seeing on social media!!! So cute!

    1. It really is the best!! It made my day!! They totally went out of their way to help me, and they have no idea how much I appreciated it!! And thanks so much gorgeous!! I am so glad you like it! xo

  9. I am very, very scared for NYC summers 🙁 Hopefully just living there makes it worth it?

    1. They are pretty hot!! But I am from Arizona so I guess I am kind of used to it?! Even though it is still rough haha! It’s so worth it 🙂

    Ps- love the anecdote about the stroller. Back when my niece was a baby (she’s 4 now) I was her nanny and after a trip to the mall I was stuck in the parking lot for nearly a half hour trying to get the stupid stroller to close!! You don’t realize how difficult strollers are when you don’t have a baby yourself. I needed some rescue firemen! Xx

    1. Thanks so much love!! That is very sweet of you!! I appreciate it 🙂 Haha!! Why do strollers have to be so difficult?! No user friendly at all sometimes hehe 🙂 Thanks for sharing!! xo

  15. I love the hair, btw!! I just recently dyed my hair pastelish pink with almost the same style as yours, but it faded out so fast. Any suggestions? I loved the color, but it just disappeared after a couple of washes.

    1. Thanks so much Elise!! I was so nervous to get it done but I LOVE it 🙂 And mine is fading too!! Mine was temporary color.. did you get permanent?! That may be why!! xo

    1. Aww thank you love!! I agree, I love the glitter!! They are so fun!! 🙂
