Many Alaskan already dream about their next get-a-way to the warm beaches of Hawaii and Mexico in October. They book these trips when the Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) is paid out in October, and the PFD sales are on. The permanent fund was constitutionally established in Alaska in 1976 to set aside a given share of oil revenues to benefit current and future generations of Alaskans. In a broad nutshell, Alaska residents with US citizenship can apply for the PFD when they have lived within Alaska for a full calendar year (January 1 to December 31), and intend to remain Alaska resident indefinitely.
Around the time of the PFD payouts, so-called PFD deals exist all over Alaska. Since no one likes 30 below temperatures and colder – not even Alaskans, PFD travel deals go fast. It is nice to get a little break from seven months or more of winter. Once the vacation place is secured, and the cold weather requires Alaskans to bundle up, they start dreaming off warm beaches and running around in cut-offs and a comfy T-shirt like the one in the photo above.
Well, I will not get a PFD and will not book a winter get-a-way, but my new super soft striped T-shirt that I got courtesy to Marine Layer makes me dream of California beaches and San Francisco where they make them. I love strolling around Market Street watching people browsing the stores. Interestingly, I rarely buy anything in the stores when I am down there.
I am an internet shopper, for which I also will not get a PFD deal 😉 . Even though Marine Layer has no PFD deals, they have a promo code for 15% off exclusively for my lovely readers, which is even better as it is not limited to Alaska 🙂 . The code is HighLatitudeStyle and it expires October 8th, 2014. In case you have missed my review on this gorgeous Marine Layer T-shirt, here is the link.
How do you style your striped T-shirts? Does your office have a Casual Friday culture? If so, what do you wear? Let me know by email, I am curious.
