Dressing a classic look up and down

Happy Monday!

Chris & I just returned from our road trip to Vancouver/Seattle/Portland on the weekend. We had such a blast – we loved Portland the most! I will share some photos from our trip hopefully later this week. I’ve also taken a lot of footage from our trip, in which I will post on YouTube to share once I find the time to sit down and edit the clips!

I wanted to style an outfit with a wool jacket I picked up a couple months ago from Hudsons Bay. I love the look of camel and black together; it screams sophisticated and it screams classic. But I also didn’t want to look too crazy-put-together, so I paired the look with a pair of pleather leggings. As you know, I don’t like looking too formal, so I added in a pair of sneakers to show how you can dress this look down if you choose not to wear heels. We hit up Sunalta station for this outfit… it was our first time there and it’s gigantic!

Aaaandddd as promised, here’s the outfit with some kicks – completely changing the look from “going to work” to casual athleisure.

A lot of big changes are taking place in the next month. After a lot of back and forth, I start a new job after being at my current one for three years, and Chris and I are in the process of looking at places because we are finally moving in (with the potential of a place already!). As much fear, anxiety, and excitement all of this has brought on, I am so grateful that everything has fallen into place ever so (literally) perfectly. The timing of things are so strange and peculiar sometimes, but at the end of the day, I am always taken care of. If you ever feel worried, unhappy, or stuck in a situation that you just can’t seem to get out of… know that it will pass and that you will be taken care of too. Trust that things will work out, push yourself to move forward, and continue to count your blessings in each and every day.

Until next time,
Becks
