I'm Amber...

… and some people call me a fashion blogger: which is kind of funny, really, because I’m writing this in my oldest pair of jeans, and I’m pretty sure there’s a patch of baby sick somewhere on my sweater, which I won’t find until next time I try to wear it.

Er, I should probably start this again, huh?

Some people call me a fashion blogger: I’m currently ranked 10th in Vuelio’s list of top UK fashion bloggers, and last year I published a book on closet essentials. Despite this, I still don’t consider myself to be a “fashion blogger” in the true sense of those words. I don’t write about – or follow – trends, for instance. You won’t see me at Fashion Week… because I really couldn’t be less interested.

Instead, my focus is on personal style, and how to find it: on creating a wardrobe that works for you and your lifestyle, and coming up with outfit formulas and closet essentials that will see you through any situation. I don’t have a capsule wardrobe myself (Although I DO tend to wear the same things over and over again, so maybe that counts?), but I do like to write about them, and my post on creating a classic capsule wardrobe is a good starting point for anyone who’s ever felt like throwing out the contents of their closet and starting again from scratch.

Oh, and I also own at least a dozen near-identical striped tops – so feel free to take all of my advice with a giant pinch of salt, ‘kay?

Outfits by Season

I’ve been photographing my outfits for over five years: which, yes, is pretty weird, when you really think of it, but which also means I now have a pretty extensive library of outfit photos for your inspiration/amusement. Feel free to browse them by season or style below…

AD | Time for a quick game of “Where’s Amber?”⁣
It’s another rainy Monday, so I’m throwing it back to our trip to @universalorlando ‘s amazing Volcano Bay water park last month. I’m a bit of a scaredy when it comes to water flumes, but this park had tons of stuff for pretty much everyone: plenty of rides for me, and an amazing splash pad for Max 👶In fact, I’d still be on The Fearless River right now if I possibly could be. Still, doing the laundry and turning the heating on will be just as good, right? Right?! 🌋 🏊‍♀️ .

Good news! We took Max to hospital this morning, and saw two different surgeons, who agreed there was no need to go ahead with the surgery as his lip is healing really well on its own 😅  He’ll definitely have a scar, unfortunately, but that would’ve been the case whether he’d had the surgery or not, and if it turns out to be worse than anticipated, we’ll have the option to have it corrected under local anaesthetic when he’s older. ⁣
I’m still really upset that this happened in the first place, obviously, but so relieved that we don’t have to put him through a general anaesthetic, and just incredibly grateful that it wasn’t anything worse. I know some parents have to deal with much more serious stuff than this, and my heart goes out to you all: it’s been a rough couple of days, and I’m really grateful to everyone who took the time to comment on yesterday’s post - your stories were so comforting when I was panicking yesterday ❤️ ⁣
(Old photo, obviously: every time Max sees the selfie camera, he thinks it’s going to be one of those filters where you open your mouth and something happens 😂)⁣

Totally unrelated photo, but we’ve just spent the morning in Accident & Emergency with Max, who fell on the path outside the house and split his lip open 😥 ⁣
They tried to stitch it up at A&E, but it was totally impossible with him awake, so they’ve booked him in to have it done under general anaesthetic tomorrow ... Max is absolutely fine: the bleeding stopped quickly, he doesn’t seem to be in pain, and is just his normal, happy little self. I, on the other hand, am a complete wreck: the plastic surgeon he saw today reckons if we don’t have it fixed, his lip will be crooked when it heals, but I’m absolutely *terrified* of the thought of my baby having to have a GA. ⁣
If you’re a long-time follower, you might know that I have a full-blown phobia of general anaesthetic (I literally had an elective c-section in order to eliminate the possibility of an emergency one, which might have had to be done under GA), so I just can’t get my head to accept that it’s safe and he’ll be fine 😥 ⁣
Positive stories and advice very welcome: I’m just so terrified, I can’t even imagine how to get through the next 24 hours 😥😥😥

#throwbackthursday to last week, when I needed a sunhat and SPF 50 to leave the house, rather than the current raincoat and wellies situation. Can you tell the post-holiday blues are still in full swing over here? 🌧 .

I posted this on Stories over the weekend, but he looked so cute in it I figured it deserved a spot on the grid, too! This is Max all ready for his friend Eleah’s 1st birthday party on Saturday: despite the jetlag and his continuing obsession with doors of all kinds (He had an entire soft play at his disposal, but he mostly just wanted to open and close the gate into it...) he had an absolute ball, and spent the whole drive home shouting, “HAPPY! HAPPY!” Thanks to @thestirlingstyle for a great party 🥳 🎈 🎉 . (Oh, and that’s his hairbrush in his hand - boy likes to look his best 😉)
