I have so much to be thankful for: family, friends, health, work… I could go on and on. My many blessings aren’t lost on me, but I’m still feeling rough today. On Sunday, I sent my parents and sister back off to California after their Thanksgiving visit. Seeing them love on Layla was just about the sweetest thing I could watch, so it was especially difficult saying goodbye. And then on top of that, I had to prep myself for my first day back at the office. Being away from Layla is going to be such a huge adjustment, and honestly it’s a bit heartbreaking knowing that I’ll miss so many hours of the day with her. The thought of it alone brought me to tears a few times over the weekend. I know she is going to be just fine, but this transition is still going to be difficult.
Tee: IWYP , Jacket: J.Crew, Jeans: similar, Shoes: Converse, Diaper Bag: Kate Spade (similar)
In attempt to keep myself in a slightly more light-hearted mood this weekend, I broke out my “Blogging is my cardio” tee. Can fun tees make you feel a little less down in the dumps? I’d like to think so. It was unseasonably warm, but I still added some light layers. It almost felt wrong going jacket-less at the end of November! The last time I wore my field jacket was with plaid. I’m loving its versatility.
Now I’d love to see how you’re remixing your wardrobe!

Loving how comfortable you look this outfit. That blogging tee is super cute – and yes, cute tees can definitely lift spirits. 🙂
Good luck this week.
Aww, it must be tough, but I’m sure your transition back to work will go really well! 🙂
it’s really nice you got to relax and spend the holiday with your family 🙂
Your tee is super cute! Love this comfy outfit!
I have one of these jackets too and love it – I really like how you did it more casual and more polished. Definitely a versatile one… if only it were warm enough here to keep wearing it 🙂
Adorable casual look and love the tee! Hope your big change this week goes well, Hon.
Good luck on your first day back! I know that is tough. I am so impressed that you are managing blogging, being a mom, and working.

I am in complete agreement on the fun shirts thing, they can definitely help to cheer you up. Good luck getting through your first day back to work. Seeing her smiling face when you come back home will make it all better!
I like both looks! The jacket looks great with both the tee and the shirt. I love your Blogging tee!
That tee is so funny! Ha ha 😀
Hope your first day back to work goes well!
This is such a cute jacket, I love both of the ways you styled it! Good luck on your first day back, I’m sure that would be tough!!
Love this J.Crew field jacket in both colors. I have the olive one and I’ve worn it so many times. Transitioning back to work after maternity leave is so hard, especially when you have your adorable little one in your mind 24/7. Hoping it gets easier. ~Cynthia
The Chucks nailed all the cuteness!!!

Looking super chic darilng!
That tee is so fun and is a great way to put a smile on your face 🙂 I’m sorry you’re having a rough time. I cry every time I have to leave my 4 month old niece and I’m not even her mom! lol. I can’t imagine how difficult it is as a mom. My sister goes back to work at the first of the year and she starts to tear up every time she thinks about it. I know it doesn’t really help but everyone says that it gets easier 🙂
It is horrible going back, but you’ll spend every minute you can with her and it will be fine. I treasure every morning snuggle session.
So sweet. I hope going back to work gets easier as time goes by. So great to have a nanny though instead of going to daycare. 🙂
AND I LOVE the t-shirt!
I just got this same field jacket and it makes me excited to see you style it! Both are great, and yes, I agree that a fun tee can brighten up my mood!
Going back to work is always rough (baby or no baby) after an extended period. I remember i called the child care place several times a day that first week. Of course, baby is okay and it’s just the parents that have separation anxiety. I hope it was not too bad for you today. Love that tee – so fun!
P.S. Stop by & enter a giveaway for blanket scarf & some amazing mascara!
Best of luck as you make this tough transition…just know that everything will work out for the best 🙂 I’m loving your jacket and that fun tee!
I love how you styled your field jacket into this trendy outfit. I am also loving that “cardio” tee. Thanks for hosting the link girl! xoxo
Love this casual and chic look….and that amazing shirt 🙂 Mel
