Gap Top/ J.Crew Skirt/ Guess Shoes from
Happy Monday friends! I feel like I should be wearing a beret and eating a croissant as I type this because this outfit seems very French to me with the black, white and red.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Here in DC, the weekend consisted mostly of helping my sister get re-settled into city life (so happy she is our neighbor once again!), watching the movies Miami Vice and Les Miserables (loved Les Mis and am downloading the soundtrack as I type!), getting in my last 20 mile run before the Charleston Marathon in South Carolina in two weeks, and, of course, the Downton Abbey season premiere.

I am also finally getting settled and organized in my new job, spending lots of time this weekend reading everything under the sun to help me feel more prepared for the week. Over the next few weeks, I am hoping to carry that over to our apartment, getting rid of things I don't need or use and downsizing considerably- my initial step in reaching my goal for 2013 to simplify everything.

Any tips for getting rid of things you feel strangely attached to as you are considering whether to give them away when you never seemed to have that feeling any time during the several years you have owned them? Pass them my way if so.

Anyhow, let's go make it a good one! See you all tomorrow.
