Unexpected Gifts

Sweater: Maison Scotch, Pants: J Brand, Booties: J Crew, Necklaces: Danni Jo & Maison Scotch

Maison Scotch has the cutest sweaters and jackets this season. I love that they all come with a little necklace or charm attached to the inside tag. I always forget until I go to remove the tag and then remember that I get a little bonus gift with my purchase. 

Life is still super hectic for me and the family. I haven't had time to get into a normal routine here in LA yet. I am trying to embrace the idea that this is my home, but I'm still resisitant to it. I still keep hoping that somehow we will end up living back in nyc permanently. The crazy thing is that I see how amazing California is, and what a great place it is to raise a family. Yet, I still cant get the idea that new york is so exciting out of my head. And I love excitiement, but life has a way of working out. Who knows? Maybe I will find some unexpected gifts right here in LA?

My friend sent me this quote: "When you fight life, life always wins." So true. I need to just embrace what I  have and be thankful for all my blessings. As long as I have my family, I can be happy anywhere:)

  1. That quote is perfect! I hope your adjustment gets easier. That sweater is fabulous... Love the added charm suprise! Hope all is well with you and your boy!

  2. Great quote..I can see why it is hard to adjust...NYC and LA are very different...and well complete opposites of the country! Just think how many people wish they lived in Cali year round! Especially during winter!

  3. love the j brand pants - I think I just saw them on piperlime's sale... I may have to snatch them up. hope the adjustment goes well - at least the weather is nicer i'm sure :)

  4. Cute sweater. Such a cool print.

    Don't worry. I'm sure you'll get your life and family sorted out in no time. Hey, you just had a baby, and then moved miles away. It takes time to settle in.
