Alaska Trip Diary

rainboots
As you may know, the family and I went to Alaska earlier this month for a family wedding. It was a magical (and relaxing) experience and I am so excited to share some photos we took on our journey around Ketchikan.hunters

We found starfish on the beach at Totem Bight Cove. The Badger’s little hat is from Carinhoca.

Rain boots were a staple as was this trike.

We found a great local haunt to quench our coffee cravings and picked up some chocolate and caramel covered popcorn at Yukon’s Popcorn Emporium.

I rotated between my Hunters and Nikes depending on the weather. Contrary to the way I dress at home, vacations are all about easy and comfortable uniform dressing.

dress up
The Badger was all about dressing up. She wore her older cousins’ shoes more than her own. Behind Harlowe’s shoes, you’ll find her Great Uncle’s Xtra Tuffs, which are effectively the Alaska state shoe.  My Hunters (see below) were a surefire way to tell I was not local.

Braids helped me avoid the frizz that comes with rainy weather.

Oh, FYI to the few of you have mentioned you love my camo pants, but can’t find them at J.Crew; they have a verrry similar pair at J.Crew Factory 50% off.

We’re all dressed up for the nuptials!  (Btw – The entire wedding was flawless and super fun.)  I’m wearing a J.Crew shirt, Chicwish skirt and ShoeDazzle shoes. The Badger is in a Tea Collection dress (Psst: they are having a huge sale that ends today!) and H&M moto jacket and Saltwater shoes.

    What a wonderful trip. I would love to visit Alaska—now you made me want to travel there even more! Despite the rain it still seems like a great time—beautiful scenery & quaint little coffee shops totally make up for it! I’m glad to hear the wedding went perfectly!

      You have to go at least once. I hear Petersburg and Sitka AK are REALLY the places to go though!

      Thank you, Whitney! It was my first trip to Alaska and I can confirm it is as gorgeous as it looks. A little weird adjusting to practically NO sun though. #ArizonaBred

    It looks so beautiful! We almost got sent there (husband’s in the Army) but I don’t know if I could take those dreary skies all the time! Y’all made rain gear look very fashionable though 🙂

      I couldn’t handle it there for long, but it was beautiful for a week. Thanks for the kind words. 🙂

    Please adopt me into your family so I can go to Alaska with you! This looks so incredibly serene and I love the braids and hunters (no matter how much of an Alaska stand out they are;) )

      Thank you, Cara! And a resounding YES to adding you to the family. You know what they say…
      Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. The ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what.
