Burgundy and Stripes

Vancouver Fashion Blogger, Alison Hutchinson, wearing H&M burgundy hat, Forever 21 pleather jacket, Urban Outfitters chambray denim top, H&M blue and white striped top, H&M burgundy skinny jeans, Zara black leather bag, Sportsgirl brown sneakers wedges, True Worth Design, Tiffany, Pyrrha, and La Dama necklaces
Having family and friends on Vancouver Island means quite a bit of travelling back and forth on the ferry. It really is the most beautiful scenery throughout the crossing, but I find the trip to be quite lengthy and uncomfortable after having done it so many times. I always want to be as warm and comfortable as possible, but still stylish because I almost always run into someone that I know. There's almost nothing that I hate more than running into an old acquaintance and looking like I just rolled out of bed -- so embarrassing and has happened one too many times for me to ever let it happen again.

So, in order to keep warm and cozy, I pile on the layers. I was wearing 4 layers on this particular day (the 4th is under the striped top). The hat helps a lot with the warmth and comes in super handy as an eye mask for when you want to have a little snooze. The sneaker wedges are my new favourite travel shoes because they keep my feet warm and are so comfortable for all of the walking. It's really the same formula that I use whenever flying as well :)

So now it's back to work after a relaxing long weekend. This is always the hardest part, but at least we know it's only a four day week ahead (at least in Canada -- sorry rest of the world). I hope you enjoy your Tuesday! xoxo

  2. Too cute! LOVE the hat!

    Isn't it funny how the ONE day that we decide not to "dress up" is the one day that everyone you ever met decides to go to the same place? Hee Hee

    BTW... thanks so much for your sweet comment. Loved it!

  5. Great hat. The color is beautiful.
    Those shoes are fun. The color, again, is fab.
    Love the horizontal stripes under the boxy lines of the layers.

  6. I am having a four-day week next week! And I'm American. Except, I am a cashier so I work during the holiday. It will be fun though.

    I think you should let yourself loose and not be so worried about getting caught "as if you rolled out of bed." You know you are gorgeous, stylish, and super fashionable, but it's also nice to know that you can be laid back and take a break from your constant perfection! Have a nice week back at work :)

    I enjoy the layered look and think you look great.

    Loving that hat of yours; such a good find.

  22. I love the burgundy with those awesome sneakers! I also am not a huge fan of the ferry which is why I always bring my laptop and watch reruns of my favourite TV shows. But it looks like you headed over when our weather was at it's prime!
