Pleated Leather, a Sweatshirt & Talking about Post Baby Back to Work Anxiety!

Hello! I’m back on the blog after taking a few months hiatus to focus on family specifically having our second child. I’ve been on maternity leave for almost 3 months but starting work today and I’ve noticed that unlike with my first, I’m having a bit more anxiety going back to work this time. Anxiety is not something I usually deal with so having a bit of it presently has forced me to find some ways to handle it.  Three things I’m keeping in mind to be in control of the minor anxiety:
  1) Philippians 4:6-7 which states: Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. As a Christian, I always try to think of this as often as I can.
2) "Love is what we’re born with, fear is what we learn” I think this is by Marianne Williamson. When reading more on this, it goes on to say the journey is to unlearn the fear and I’m working on doing just that.
  3) To remember that the only thing that’s constant is change, that changes will happen in this life and we just have to for lack of better words roll with it the best way we can.  I can’t control all the change that happen so I can’t dwell on it.  Instead, I think to myself how much I love motherhood and like my job in pediatrics and if it means me going back to work after maternity leave ends, it's ok because I'm going back to something else that's an extension of me which does not take away from motherhood.
With this look I incorporated one of the season's trends, leather/faux leather but in my opinion leather is a classic item which can be worn through the years.  I paired it with a sweatshirt and I have to say that I don't remember the last time I wore a sweatshirt or if I've ever worn one but loved how soft this felt and the fit.  I added over the knee boots because the skirt is short and a classic bag.

Hope you like the look and thanks for stopping by!
