Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Okay, not really. I quite enjoy rainy afternoons, and Mondays aren’t so bad either. But when they follow a holiday weekend that leaves me in a carbohydrate and tryptophan coma, they just make me want to crawl into bed with a steamy cup of tea and a good book.

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving! Ours was lovely. We spent lots of quality time with family that we don’t see nearly often enough, had a successful Black Friday at the shop, and spent all day yesterday eating leftovers and lounging around the house.

And now begins the crazy spiral toward Christmas. So much to do and so little time! Beginning with decorating the shop for the holiday, including two huge window displays (Pinterest inspiration, anyone?). I hear a legit cold front is heading our way this week, which always helps me get in the holiday spirit. {There’s something so wrong about trimming a tree in a sundress and flip-flops.}

    That bag is so adorable and I really love those pants too! I’m so jealous of your cold front. Being in LA, more often than not, the Christmas decorating is done in sundresses… Boo to that.

    I am so jealous of your bag! I love the color and the texture. It goes well with the other layers you choose for this look. We’re having a warm fall as well but I know there will be plenty of cold by the time the holidays roll around. I hope you’ll share pics of how you decorate your store front windows!
