Throw A Denim Jacket On It








Paige Jacket (thrifted) / Rebecca Taylor Dress (consignment) / Clogs (thrifted) / Ecote Bag

This is the dress I bought in Anchorage at Second Run Consignment,  the fabric is so beautiful and has little bit of silver woven through out.  I don't usually wear an empire waist because I feel the proportions can look a little odd on me but I liked the flow of the dress.  It also looks adorable with a sweater pulled on top so there's lots of layering possibilities.

Counting Days, Counting Days







Spell Designs Kimono / Jockey Tank (thrifted) / Mother Shorts (thrifted) / Free People sandals (ebay) / Anthropologie Bag (birthday gift)

This outfit was on one of the aforementioned 90F days, I took the kids the beach, we got swimmer's itch, it was great. (not really....)  We have been lucky to have such a nice warm summer however, not even a bit of smoke which is quite rare for us in the Interior, there's usually a few large forest fires during the summer but not this year! (I think everyone is happy about that.)

Soft Touch







Paige Denim Jacket (thrifted) / Jockey tank (thrifted)/ Free People Velvet Skirt (ebay) and Clogs (ebay) / Coach Bucket Bag (thrifted)

We had one day where temps cooled off a bit so I pulled out my velvet skirt.  I love velvet but not all velvet is created equally - you know that scratchy feeling you get when you brush bad velvet against the grain?  Hahaa, not with this skirt!  The velvet is really nice and soft no matter which way you brush it, it's just lovely.  The color is also one of my favorite so it was fun to wear it again after it'd been packed away all summer. However, we had three days of 90F temps after that so back in the box it went.

On The Edge







UO Hat / AEO Jacke / Helmut Lang Top (consignment) and Leather Pants (ebay) / Rag and Bone Boots (ebay) / Free People Bag

One of those cases where I think maybe a different boot(maybe the Acne Dona boots?) and a different Jacket, like a leather one, might have pulled this outfit from okay to good.   I've been trying to break away from the high rise black jeans as my default bottoms and I really like olive green right now - it goes with pretty much everything and just looks slick.  I feel like I swing around quite a bit style-wise between the seasons, summer is all boho all the time and in the winter I revert to all black.  I'm trying to hit some sort of middle ground but it doesn't always work.

Fringe





AEO Hat & Shorts / Spell Designs Shirt / Rag and Bone Boots (ebay) / Free People Bag (ebay)

I don't wear this shirt nearly enough - the fringe and lace work are really beautiful and it's a stunning top, I just always sort of forget about it.  Ugh.  This look is swinging dangerously close to cowgirl chic (without the practical boots) but I have no excuses - I like fringe and I cannot lie.

Sunset In The Wild












UO Hat / Fred Meyer Poncho (older) / Free People Dress (ebay) / Rag and Bone Boots (ebay)

There might be prettier sights than the Denali Hwy at sunset but it's one of my favorite places in Alaska.

Flowers





Icings Vest (Christmas gift / Anna Sui Maxi (ebay) / Clogs (thrifted)  Coach Backpack (thrifted 2012)
Vetch may be an invasive species that's pushing out everything else but it does look pretty in photos. (Despite our best efforts to destroy it all.)   This Anna Sui dress is a little older but after a few repairs it's good to go again.  I just threw on an older denim vest and then got all matchy matchy with my clogs and leather backpack. It's a little funny to see how trends swing around, I remember leather backpacks from the 90's and my mom still has mine and then I thrifted this slightly older Coach one in 2012, just in time for it to be on trend five ears later!

Swing Back

 


H&M Hat / Wilfred Tee (thrifted) / AEO Shorts / Ecote Bag / House of Harlow Shoes (ebay)

An older outfit from the end of June, yikes!  I've been trying to be a little more on top of things this summer and trying not to neglect the blog like I normally do but sometimes time gets away from me. This isn't an exciting outfit, tee, shorts and sandals but I like to show what I really wear - I'd like to think the sandals, bag and earring step it up a little and the embroidery on the shorts adds a little extra visual interest.
