dress: Isabel Marant for H&M | jacket: H&M (VERY similar via Mango) | boots: Isabel Marant (Club Monaco version with 25% off) | bag (c/o): Aritzia | sunnies (c/o): RayBan via SmartBuyGlasses | watch (c/o): Daniel Wellington (today is the LAST DAY to use “theaugustdiaries” to get 15% off!)

As if you couldn’t tell.. I’m on a bit of a Marant kick. Thanks to my new Dicker booties, I’ve pulled out all the stops with this outfit and gone full Marant. She just does the effortless, Parisian chic thing so well. I wore this number to an event at Faubourg that the lovely Cara of A Fashion Love Affair hosted last week. It is the perfect outfit to take you anywhere (dinner, party, date) because the boots are comfy, the dress is versatile and the jacket is warm. Done.

In life news, I’m having a bit of a rough week… and yes I know, it’s only Wednesday. I’m feeling a lot of pressure and stress in all aspects of my life; from work and my blog (which is also work) to relationships and just basic health. Worst of all is that I’m second guessing my gut instinct… even when I know it’s usually right, I’m having trouble trusting it.

When I feel overwhelmed I usually go for a run and while that has helped, I can’t seem to kick this funk. I know it’s short lived right now, but I hate feeling like I’m “wasting” days.

What do you guys do to get yourself out of a funk? Help!

    Love this, lady! Hope you come out of your funk soon. A nice dinner, wine and my gfs usually does the trick for me!
