Spring means flowers

Adding flower with fashion when spring fails to have them

Spring means flowers everywhere, but in Alaska. In Alaska, we, of course, also have four seasons: June, July, August, and winter. June means mosquitoes, July means wildfire smoke and smell, and August means rain and high water. Winter means below freezing temperatures, inversions, and air pollution in Fairbanks.

The absence of spring as you know it, however, does not mean that I skip on the flowers. Here I am wearing my floral tweed skirt from Ann Taylor that I found on eBay with my gingham shirt, blue V-neck cashmere sweater, washed tailored denim jacket, and over-the-knee boots.

Springtime in Alaska is 40 below: Style your outerwear

The “outer” outfit also indicates springtime in Alaska with my cayenne boxy leather coat. The layering underneath allows me to already wear this light coat.
