Alaskan Roots

When it's cold outside and I don't feel good and it's the weekend and I need to run a quick errand, I don't care what I look like.  The sleeping-bag coat covers up my sweats and pajama top.  A hat takes care of the hair I haven't washed.  The boots and no make-up... well, let's just hope I don't run into anyone I know.  I walked out the door on Sunday afternoon looking pretty OK for an Alaskan going to town.  I didn't think it was a big deal until Will said, "I'm glad I'm not going with you."  I guess I didn't look very European in my get-up.  What can I say?  When it's cold outside, the Alaskan in me comes out.  That is one thing I miss about Alaska - it really does NOT matter what you wear or look like when you walk out the door.  On a Sunday afternoon, it's exactly what I needed - a bit of home.

Alaskan Summer Clothing - good for fishing, shopping, and walking around town.

Color coordinated!

My hair is actually done here - there's a hair clip.  Ya, I was that kid, along with every other kid in my class.


  1. :) So cute! That WAS a nice perk of living in Alaska...

  2. This is amazing! Remind Will that he likes when women look natural. He should be so happy!

  3. Ha ha, Emily and I were just talking tonight about the lack of fashion in AK and the lack of need for fashion. It's so much more about function and keeping warm and dry! And by the way Anchorage takes number one as the most unfashionable city in the USA. Now that really made me laugh because Los Anchorage is the fashion capitol of the state! If Anchorage has no style what about places like Anchor Point, Nikiski or Barrow! Kim, It really is funny where we came from and where we are now....

    1. So true Mar. It's amazing we've learned to blend in the fashion worlds of Brazil and Europe! I bet you never thought you'd be rockin' some of the clothes you wear now as a teenager in AK! :)
