We Leave Our Christmas Lights Up All Year Round











Urban Outfitters Hat
American Eagle Poncho and Bag
Leather Jacket (thrifted- no label)
Old Navy Cardigan (about 6 years old at this point, Old Navy use to have the best cardigans)
Free People Dress (consignment)
Faux Suede Boots (thrifted)
Scarf (gift)

I wore this outfit last Tuesday at the beginning of the winter storm that dumped over a foot of snow on the Fairbanks area. The snow was heavy enough that with mixed with a little wind the power ended up being knocked out for over 20,000 people.  The power stayed out for the next few days (with it still being out for people up in the hills) but we have a wood stove and were fairly prepared for the blackout. I grew up outside of Seward right in between two avalanche zones and we'd get cut off from Seward and Anchorage for about two weeks out of the year and power outages were extremely frequent during the winter. We just got pretty use to having the generator ready to go, lamps and flashes lights ready and lots of wood for the stove and it's hard to break out of those habits - even if avalanches really aren't a problem in flat Fairbanks!

  1. The deep green works so beautifully with the cognac and dark neutrals. Lovely shots of the snow - although I'm glad I'm not in it!
