Anything that is a bright salmon color – I AM IN. I think it might be my favorite color, ever. So yes I am obsessed with the sandals I am wearing in this post! I actually got these Steve Madden sandals at Nordstrom before our California trip, so I got to maximize my wearing time:) I already can’t wait for summer and good weather. I’m sure I speak for most of you who don’t have the pleasure of living in Florida or California. But i’m ready. I’m ready for shorts, shortsleeves, swimsuits, and everything else that comes with good weather, so this was a nice trial run. I love these sandals, even though they aren’t the most adventurous pair of sandal, I still felt comfortable wearing them on all of the activities we did. I wore them rafting, and to the water fall, even to a nice dinner. They are way comfortable and light, which was great for traveling.

When we first got married we did more little videos from trips, so I want to start sharing these again. It’s just a little summary of our Jamaica trip in a few minutes! You can watch it HERE! Hope you have a great day!

*Thanks to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.

  4. That’s it, I’m buying a Go Pro before our next trip! What an awesome way to document vacations!

  6. Love LOVE love the video!!! My boyfriend Casey is obsessed with his gopro! (i guess boys never stop loving toys no matter how old they get!) We filmed our St.Johns trip with it! I actually told him before we left that I was going to do one of your braids every day so my hair wouldn’t look stick straight and gross like it did in our europe video haha

    If you ever need to think of a gift for David I’m sure he’d love a gimble for the go pro or even a drone haha Case keeps dropping hints to me for those two things

    This was the video he put together for us 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Shelby!! And oh my goodness!! I just watched your video!! It’s seriously amazing! Props to your boyfriend!! St. John’s look soo dreamy 🙂 That footage was unreal!!!

  9. So cute!!! So this is random, but I wanted to let you know that I had to get a little operation today and I wore one of your braids to the hospital and all the nurses where asking and commenting on it. So before I left I think I saw at least 10 of them writing down the name of your website!

    1. First off, thank you so much for being such a loyal follower!! I appreciate it SO much!! And secondly, you’re so sweet!! Thanks for making my day 🙂 xoxo

  13. I love the color salmon, I always feel so tan when I wear it. Your video from the trip is so cute, I’m sure it will be so fun to look back on and remember your adventure especially when Atticus is older. Oh and I love Atticus in that hat…it’s adorable!

    1. Haha I know exactly what you mean!! Anything that makes me look more tan is good in my book 🙂 And thank you so much!! I can’t wait to look back on it in the future!! xoxo

    1. Thank you so much Sissi!! You’re so sweet!! Thanks for taking the time to leave such a kind comment, it really made my day!! xoxo

  20. Loved the video! Great use of the selfie stick especially Atticus holding it too lol. Jamaica is definitely on our families adventure list. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you!! And yes, our GoPro is a must!! Atticus just loves taking charge too! haha 🙂 Jamaica was beautiful, definitely add it on your list! Thanks for reading love!! xo

  21. Omg!! That was the cutest video! It literally made my eyes water. What kind of a camera does David have that’s waterproof?? Those were amazing shots. It was like a movie and as others commented, should be used as a promotional commercial!

    1. Aww thank you!! You’re so cute!! And it’s his Hero4 Black GoPro 🙂 It’s perfect for vacations!! David made the video, so I will pass that compliment along!!

  22. I love the video!! It brings me right back to Jamaica! David reminds me a lot of my husband, doing flips off of cliffs (a lot more brave than I am)! Such a sweet video, it will be an awesome keepsake for Atticus 🙂 I have a couple of questions for you…was your video done with a GoPro? Or, what do you use? We bought an underwater camera just for our Jamaica trip and it broke within the first few hours!! I was so mad! Also, what did you use in your hair while you were there? It was soooo humid! I have naturally curly hair so every day I looked like I had a frizz ball on the top of my head…a lot of braids for me! But, most of the hair products I usually use just made my hair a sticky mess so I didn’t really use any at all except an Aveda spray with SPF in it. I was just wondering if you had the same issues. Looks like your trip was awesome! Once you go to Jamaica, it becomes an addiction! You will HAVE TO go back!

    1. Thanks so much Lisa!! I am happy you liked it! Haha yeah I know what you mean!! I would NEVER jump off those cliffs! Too scared :/ And aww yes, it will be so fun to have him look back on the video when he’s older!! And yes, the video was done with the Hero4 Black GoPro and some on our camera (canon 5d mark iii). The GoPro is expensive, but it’s honestly worth it because it works great and the footage always looks good! I highly recommend it. As far as my hair, I didn’t use any products or hot tools actually!! I just let it air dry and then left it down somedays or braided it back!! The humidity wasn’t too bad in Jamaica, but I know what you mean about frizziness, my solution was braiding it 🙂 And thank you!! We hope to go back for sure! xo

    1. It was amazing!! We had a great time! And yes, I agree!! Bright colors are my favorite for summery weather 🙂 xo

    1. We had a wonderful time!! And I am glad you like them!! They are some of my new favs 🙂 Thanks for reading Laura!! xo

  23. Yay! I have been wanting to know where you got this swimsuit It is SO cute and your video is so stinkin cute! My husband and I are going to Hong Kong and Tokyo this summer so you have inspired me to document with videos along with pics such a cute idea!


    1. Awesome!! I’m glad I could help 🙂 And thank you!! It’s one of my favorites yet!! And wait what?! I am SO jealous!!! That will be amazing! Definitely make a video, it’s the best way to save memories 🙂 xo

    1. Thanks so much Courtney!! It will definitely be fun to watch in the future with Atticus!! 🙂 xo

  24. Okay… Atticus, the video, your outfit – SO cute!! I’ve always loved your vacation videos so I’m so glad you did one 🙂
    And I’ve been planning to buy those sandals in black (Really unexciting, but I need black ones), so I’m glad to hear you liked them and now I want them in coral as well! haha
