i've become best friends with the postal office folks.

it was an errands-kind-of-day.

so we were going for the more casual, comfy look. well, i wasn't really even going for a look per-se. just thinking what is quick and comfortable (sweater, jeans and flat-footed shoes) 'cause i had a busy day ahead of me. this outfit shot was a quick one, too. before ashley and i ran errands to the post office, she took these quick pics. 

gray boyfriend blazer: Lauren Conrad
green v-neck sweater: Forever21
jeans: Aeropostle
ankle boots: Rampage

i think ashley was adjusting the settings or something in that one picture where i look so bored and impatient. or maybe i was cold and saying brrrrr? sometimes i look at pictures and crack up 'cause i don't even realize i made the face that was captured in the pics. 

so everyone else feeling the holidays hanging in the air above us like a cloud? i do! the temperature dropped again (though it was oddly humid on tuesday - raining and warm. not the greatest combo. ick), so we are all layering and grabbing our coats and boots as we run out into the southern cold front. i'm loving it. it's perfect for the time of year. christmastime is supposed to be a season of bundling and layers. 

speaking of christmastime, i'm blasting me some Glee Christmas on a daily basis. i'm currently addicted to the Deck the Rooftop and Jingle Bells. i do need to find my Mariah Carey and Amy Grant Christmas cds and download them to my itouch. those are a couple of my classic Christmas faves.

what are some your Christmas music faves?
any recommendations?

in other news...

part of what is keeping moi busy are the orders going out left and right. the post office staff and i are become even better friends from the past week. THANK YOU to all of you that made purchases over the thanksgiving weekend! i've never had my shop open during the holiday season - so this is my first thanksgiving and christmas season to have it open. it's been a learning experience but a good one, too! 

and believe it or not, with the rush of the thanksgiving holiday, i didn't even get a chance to celebrate my shop's 1st birthday on november 22! with that said, i'd love to offer my blog readers and twitter followers, a 10% discount off of your order using the coupon code: SHOPBDAY. the coupon code will be active until Sunday, December 12th. might be a good time to get in those last minute orders before the holiday rush (though i think we are already at the start of it!). 

and don't forget shawni's sweet giveaway! enter it if you haven't already. she's got some great goodies she's giving away...and spread the word!  

...and be sure to let me know what are some of your christmas faves! 
i'm always on the hunt for some new holiday sounds!
