Guys I have to say thank you for all of your comments on my last post!!! They all made my day!! We are really excited to go be by family and build a home so thank you for your excitement too :) So this outfit - I have listened to your guys feedback and made a big order online and made sure everything was under $100 and this dress was one of them! I found a few new affordable brands that have the absolute cutest stuff - one of them is English Factory which is the brand of this dress I am wearing here and you'll see me wear a few more of their pieces through the next couple weeks. Their price point is about $40-$90. I also lovvve Endless Rose - they have really cute dresses I have this one and this one - I love the length! Their price point is also around $40-$120. Okay and then two more! I just got this top by Style Mafia that I wore in my instagrams yesterday. And then last but not least BB Dakota - I have worn some of their pieces over the last year and love them. This hat I totally splurged on. I love boater hats! I have a lot of super cute hats from Forever 21 or H&M but I have found that the hats I wear the most often and the ones that hold their shape best while traveling etc. are mostly higher price points - I mostly love Eugenia Kim and Eric Javits!! But Brixton has better price points and really well made hats!!! Who is your guy's favorite hat brand? I love hats SO much! Can never have enough hats. Anyways hope you all have a good day!!!! xoxo

woooow I love the nautical dress:O,
I’m in love!!!! Amber is a fashion goddess ??
I have a slight obsession with hats myself and love Brixton hats. But My favorite hat is from Lovely Bird. They have really unique designs I think you would really like! They range anywhere from $40 to $200 but they are worth every penny!
How can you not smile from ear to ear in this look?? So cute!
I love your blog! This outfit is so chic. I am a huge fan of hats as well my favorite hat designer is out of San Francisco called Hats & Tales. http://www.shophatsandtales.com/
So summery! Love your light blue skirt/dress.
Super cute outfit! I hope that bucket list is going well!
Ah love this outfit, Amber! I saw you Snapchat about how you edited this on Lightroom. And I was thinking — you have such beautiful “filters”, would you ever consider releasing a few of your presets! They are just gorgeous!
Ooooh I love this dress! You always give off such a happy/cheery vibe that never fails to put me in good mood!♥
I can’t wait to see how you style the Endless Rose dresses next! The length of those are fantastic and oh-so versatile! And thanks for the tips/brand on hats – I’m also a “hat-aholic” and hate when hats lose their shapes while traveling!
so flirty and feminine!
I love this outfit! Thanks for this post. Hope you have a great day!
I think it’s awesome you’re finally posting some more affordable outfits! I felt like some of your outfits lately were way too outrageously priced for the average person, so it’s nice to see a post like this finally! 🙂
Such a fun and stunning look! I love the pretzel cross-body such a cute touch xoxox
Your outfit is too cute!! Love it so much 😉
You MUST do a post on your Botox!!! How did you find a doctor you could trust in different cities????
What camera did you use? I am in the market for a good camera and I think the quality of yours is amazing!!
Thanks so much!! We use a Canon 5d mark iii 🙂
Your hat is so darling!! <3 Love ya Amber!
So glad you like it!! Thanks Kristen!! xo
Super cute Amber! And I have to say the hat was SO worth it. Love it one U??❤️
Thx again Amber,
Thank you so much!! 🙂
I love that you chose to focus on more affordable pieces over designer brands. Have you ever considered a beauty post on affordable nail polishes? I’ve seen you wear some cute colors and as a fellow mom, I’d love to see you do a post on ones that hold up well but are super cheap so you can purchase lots of colors. I love trying out new shades, but am on a stay-at-home mom budget while my nails take a beating between gardening, cleaning, and kid frolicking 🙂
The pretzel purse! I die!! So cute. Photos are beautiful. 🙂 xo
I love those sunglasses!
Adorable summer outfit! This would’ve been perfect for the 4th of July too 😉
I am SO obsessed with hats, so I will definitely be taking your recommendations! I also love that the clothes on this post are under $100! I might just have to buy that adorable dress..
Love this budget-friendly look! So cute.
Such a good recommendation about the more expensive hat. I think that is a great point that I do wear ones that are most expensive!
Thank you so much for sharing! love love!
Oh my gosh! Dying over this dress! So cute! We’ve been going boating and this dress would be so adorable for one of our family boat rides.
I think it’s neat you created a post with clothes within a certain price point – what a great idea! I enjoy all your fashion posts, no matter how expensive/inexpensive because all of your outfits inspire me; and I can try my best to mimic what I see you wearing even if it’s outside of my budget. So please continue to post a variety of brands and price points! 🙂 You are a style icon! <3
Hi Amber! This is a bit off today’s topic but could you please do a tour of your current apartment (like you once mentioned you might do one day) before you move? I’d love to see what your place looks like. I am so happy for you and your children to make a move into a house! There’s nothing better than a house with a garden for a child to grow up in! Wishing you best of luck. xoxo
That bag is so cute, I am obsessed!!
Cute outfit! I love the sweater. Very nice of you to make a look that’s budget friendly.
Omg I love those sunglasses!! And I’m really not a hat person, but you inspire me to start wearing them!!
Love love the happy dress! You look absolutely adorable.. ❤️?
Love love love that you are working on posts with more affordable fashion options! Thank you! As a graduate student, I’m always looking for a deal ha. I love your style and your ability to put together the cutest outfits, no matter the price point. One day I hope to splurge on some of the flats from your fantastic shoe collection! I’m so excited for your family and your move! Cannot wait to see your house once it’s finished. Enjoy the rest of your time in NYC!
I wish I could afford this stuff haha. Being in college and trying to look cute with well quality clothing items is tough!!!!
OMG this is SUCH a cute outfit! I absolutely love it Amber!!

Well if I am , I sweeaar that you are made to be a mom!! You aren’t that kind of mom ” Don’t get messy/ Don’t touch that”. You are damn good mother! A relaxed mother! Love that ❤ My mother died when I was 3 and I don’t knkw how is to have a mother but you kids are so blessed with you! I’m 32 weeks pregnant with a girl. I hope to be a splendid mom as you are. I will name my girl Amber :☺
I love your Outfit but the Bretzel ( so we called/write it here in Germany)-Bag is sooo cool. Can you please create a look in the future that is not so expensive for normal people?
That dress is the cutest!
Thank you for doing some more affordable fashion posts! I mean don’t get me wrong I have always loved your style, but in the last year or so the fashion posts was something that the “average girl” could just not afford. So thank you for looking for some other items for us :]
How cute are you?! Love love love this look!
Love this! Such a fun outfit.
XO, Destinee Nicole
I’m obsessed with BB Dakota! I just wore their dresses for both a bridal shower and our rehearsal dinner! So happy for you about the move and can’t wait about your adventures to come!

School girl chic meets nautical look! I’m totally in love with your bag and dress!
Eugenia Kim and Rag&Bone got to be my favourites when it comes to hats.
Thanks so much Natali!! That means a lot coming from you 🙂
You totally rocked this look, love the outfit!
Thank you babe!!
That’s such an adorable dress and I absolutely love the hat! I’ve come to learn that like many things, it’s worth splurging just a little bit on hats.
Something About That
Thanks so much Jackie!! And yeah definitely! Glad you agree 🙂
