Beach Walks

 These shots pretty much sum up my weekends lately -- a long walk on a gloomy day around Kitsilano. It doesn't sound like the most appealing thing to do, but I have to admit that I really love it. There's something about forcing myself out into the dark and dull day that is so refreshing and reminds me that the world isn't over just because the sun isn't out. Now don't get me wrong , I would much prefer the sun over the rain any day, but nothing beats the fresh air -- rain or shine.

I was wearing:

Dynamite Sweater
Current/Elliot Coated Denim
Hunni's Boots
Aritzia Toque

5 Incredible Years

 5 Years! Today is our 5 year anniversary and I'm blown away at how fast it's gone. Time really does fly when you're having fun. We've had some incredible adventures in the last few years and I can't wait to experience even more together. I couldn't ask for a better partner at my side -- I think I might be the luckiest girl in the world!

Happy anniversary baby! Thank you for making me so incredibly happy every single day. xoxo

Thanks so much for joining in on our adventures!

Black Black

 I pretty much used to live in an all black look, but lately I've been adding a lot more color to my life. I think the transition actually happened when I started this blog and realized that all black is one of the hardest things to photograph while color tends to look a lot more interesting. The days can also get really dark and gloomy in Vancouver this time of year, so I feel that color can lend a hand in brightening my mood. But in truth -- I think all black is still my very favorite thing to wear. It's so easy to make it interesting by mixing textures and materials like leather, lace and denim. It's definitely far from boring but is one of the easiest outfits to put together. We shot this look in front of the most colorful wall I could think of so that you couldn't tell just how overcast and dull this day was. The people are a little strange in the mural, but that's what makes it so hilarious.

I was wearing:

Witchery Top (similar)

Good News

Vancouver Fashion and Style Blogger, Alison Hutchinson, is wearing an oversized simons cardigan with an all-black look.
Happy Monday guys! I haven't gotten anything done that I had hoped, but it still ended up being a pretty amazing day. I really love good news on a Monday. I feel like all good news should be saved for a Monday so that the week can start on the most positive note. Wouldn't that be wonderful if you could always start the week in that way? I would love that so much.

Another positive thing that happened recently was re-finding this cardigan! I thought I had lost it but it just turns out that I'm really that messy. It was under a pile of clothes and I guess I just didn't dive deep enough into it. Yup, that's my life right now. Not enough closet space and needing to do a serious clothing cull. I think some early spring cleaning might be in order. But seriously -- isn't this the best cardigan? I love how oversized and cozy it is. It's also not too thick that you can't wear it under your coat, but has plenty of warmth to make a difference. I love wearing an oversized cardigan with a miniskirt underneath so that the sweater is slightly longer. There's something very hipster and relaxed about this that I love so much -- especially when worn with a slouchy toque!

I hope you guys have an amazing rest of your week! I would love to hear your thoughts on this look. xoxo

Bundled at the Beach

Vancouver Style Blogger, Alison Hutchinson, in weekend casual wear to watch the sunset at kits beach
I'm pretty sure you've all figured out how much I love the beach by now, but seriously -- how beautiful is this spot? It is the ultimate place for watching the sunset and is my very fave to come to during the summer to sit on the beach with my man to watch the sun go down. Other than that, the beach is kind of lame, but the view is seriously unbeatable. You get to see the city, the mountains and the open sea all at the same time. I love this neighborhood so much.

I feel like the weekends are so sacred right now because it's about the only time we can actually see the sunset this time of year. The rest of the week we're stuck indoors working until after it's already dark outside and to be honest -- it's probably raining too (like it has been the past 2 days). So this weekend, Ollie and I took advantage and went to our favorite spot to soak it all in. And it was totally worth it. If you're not already following me on Snapchat (@stylingmylife), make sure you do! I always give behind the scenes of what I'm up to at times like this.

This look is pretty typical of something that I wear every weekend at the moment -- a cozy sweater, jeans, ankle boots, a warm coat (that you can see in a couple of the shots) and a warm soft scarf. I seriously can't even describe how soft this scarf is -- I liken it to the softness of kittens. Yup, imagine that. Soft kittens snuggled up to you all day :)
