Late snow and Chinook permitted many fall looks
Living in Interior of Alaska since nearly two decades atught me that snow falling after October 10 typically lasts until spring. We got the first snow before that date and it went away due to Chinook. Well, chinook translates to snow eater. 😉
The next load came on October 25 and chinook again keep the temperatures up. In other words, this year, October weather actually permitted fall style. When you are a regular reader you may already know that the transition from summer to winter and vice versa is usually less than a months or so. Thus, this post has many fall outfit ideas to try including some summer to fall transition outfits.
What I wore in Alaska this fall

Fall business casual work outfits
The navy blue coat dress in the photos below is a recent thriftstore find for $15. I like the tailored cut. It gives my straight-up-and-down body some shape. Despite I wasn’t in need for a work dress, I bought it because the cut is very classic, and the color is a neutral. Thus, it seemed a good find and opportunity to stock up on high quality work gear. It is also great to pack for a business trip.
Early in the month, I used the colors of my new sweater for an outfit idea. The green circles inspired me to pair it with my A-line style silk skirt and the navy cardigan. I bought this all neutral color piece on sale when on a business trip in DC. The salesperson tried to sell me also the matching cardigan, but I resisted. Why should I buy it, when I have a navy cardigan that also make a need faux twinset with the sweater. More is just more, and not necessarily better.It’s so important to know when to splurge or bargain, don’t you think so?
The look below feature a fit-and-flare knit-dress with leather jacket. The bold colors and pattern were what made me buy it. Ok, I am also a fit-and-flare dress kind of gal. I really love my Karina Dresses. The black stripes insprired me to wear the piece with a black leather jacket to the office.
Fall weekend style
The look in the next two photos served for shopping on a weekend. I don’t remember how long this tunic dress already has a place in my closet. Early on I wore it without tights even on rainy days in summer. Recall summer rainy days have temperatures around 50 to 60F (10 to 15oC) in the Interior. However, today, it’s a fall weekend favorite with tights. I like my hems about 4 inch longer than this dress’ hem when going bare legs. But with tights I still like the length. Has your comfort-hem length also moved south over time?
The look below is another weekend casual, but this time with tunic and jeans.
Date night out
The look below shows a pink stripped dress that I wore going out with my husband. It’s the dress that the waitress spilled the wine all over in September. I was glad to get the spots out.
The photos above show some of this October’s looks I haven’t posted on the blog so far. When you want to see more of this month’s outfits just click older posts at the bottom of this post.
