Outfit of the Week: Into the Wild

Today’s the Anchorage-themed day of Name It and Win It and, fittingly, I’ll soon be headed to Alaska to attend an outdoor wedding in Homer, a beautiful fishing town about four hours south of Anchorage. I planned this outfit as an example of something I might wear to the wedding.

I fell in love with the Little Bow Chic Dress, with its matching belt and crisscrossed back, and paired it with the incredibly comfortable Jeffrey Campbell Sherwood Forest Heels. I seriously feel like I could hike a mountain in these shoes! I went tromping over to this ivy-covered wall with ModLife’s photographer, Andy, and promptly proposed I climb on a pile of rubble (He suggested I stick to the pretty green backdrop.)

I love the Heidi braids I’ve been seeing everywhere this season and think they’re the perfect solution for keeping cool. Since I’m really pale (as you can see) and sunburn easily, I picked the Gal Capone Hat to avoid a sunburn. And at every wedding, you want to carry the essentials without dragging around a huge bag, so The Jackie Bag was the perfect size purse for the occasion. I accessorized with the Baracus Bracelet and, as a nod to the Alaska wildlife, I donned the Wear Wolf Necklace!

What are your travel plans for the summer? Any destinations that have inspired you to plan an outfit in advance? Sometimes I dream up outfits I’ll wear to places I may never even get to go. Do you?


About Turi

When Turi isn’t blogging, you can find her nose behind a book. But reading isn’t her only pastime. She loves running (cue jogging stroller), taste-testing pizza and burgers, and working on the next great American novel. Her latest homage to all things literary? Her son is named after writer Dashiell Hammett. How apropos.

    Those heels and clutch are adorable! Great combination of elements.

    Sadly, I missed the Name It deadline for the June 11th posting. It would have been Peel into a Fireweed Frenzy dress! While the plant itself is a hot pink, it is native to and brings a pop of color to the Alaskan landscape.

    Oh… your adorable Cloris braids (from Beerfest) make me miss having long hair. Oh, well, I hope you had a lovely adventure.

    I think Homer is the prettiest place in Alaska, and my dad lives there, so I get to see it a lot! Your outfit is adorable! I’m super pale as well. And yes, I dream up outfits all the time!
