Little House In The Woods
Forever 21 Jacket (thrifted)
Forever 21 Silk Dress (thrifted)
Leather Satchel (christmas gift)
Leather Boots c/o H&M
Ah, the good old days back when Old Navy did cashmere and Forever 21 has silk. How times have changed. This dress is actually surprisingly well made, it's one of two button up dresses I've ever found that doesn't not gape at the bust line and a lot of that is due to the fantastic seaming along the bust line. I'm a 32D so while I like how button up looks, it's rare that I can find one that doesn't gape. Even sizing up doesn't help, there'll be a bajillion yards of fabric in the back and the stupid thing will still pull in the bust. So it ends up being a treat when I find on that doesn't although it surprises me that my expensive Equipment blouse gapes, the cheap Forever 21 dress doesn't. Goes to figure.
These pictures were taken right outside Pioneer Park, I've done a few posts about it before but I love this place. It looks so pretty in the wintertime and it's wonderful to have a park that puts such a priority on preserving original houses in Fairbanks. They have a few museums within the park as well as an old Steamboat and a huge kids area. I've talked about it before so I won't beat a dead horse but if you do ever visit Fairbanks, this should be on your list. The little house you see here is next to the Salmon Bake and there's a ton of old mining equipment. It looks pretty picturesque in the winter time with the snow everywhere.
