Happy Fashion Friday, all! Today, I am showing you more Alaskan cruise wardrobe favorites.
Because, you asked to see my Alaskan cruise wardrobe, I wanted to share with you what I liked the most.
Packing for this cruise was the biggest packing challenge I have faced…I really wanted to keep to two bags with everything for seven days in different climates.
We shared a van from our Seattle hotel to the pier, and the woman was over 50, also going for seven days, and she had six bags.
She was dressed in a very fashion forward athletic outfit, and smiled sheepishly as she admitted that she loved to dress up for every cruise event with great style.
I am certain her outfits were stunning, and that brought her much joy. If I showed up with six bags, Mr. B might leave me on the dock!
So, I did my best to select a cruise wardrobe that worked well together and offered different outfits.
This post is about my favorites……
MY ALASKAN CRUISE WARDROBE FAVORITES: DID SOMEONE SAY STRIPES?
This yellow rose of Texas had more fun with stripes than I have in a long time.
Of course, they were a big part of my Alaskan cruise wardrobe….stripes just say nautical to me.
This is a mostly gifted Ming Wang look…but I am wearing these jeans into the ground…so my cost per wear are very low on this pair.
They are currently on sale at an amazing price at Dillard’s…I would grab these in a minute if I did not already have them….MING WANG Stretch Denim Slim Leg Pull-On Ankle Jeans.
The color called limestone is a light tan or khaki color.
This jacket was a gift in black that I did not turn down…it is a great jacket….MING WANG Deco Crepe 3/4 Sleeve Zip Front Jacket.
If you wear black and have a casual wardrobe, you will most likely have a low cost per wear on this jacket…it is an excellent piece and it traveled well…no wrinkles.
My caramel striped linen tank was a recent purchase at MARSHALLS for around $16. Though linen, It traveled well.
This outfit was so comfortable for an Alaskan cruise wardrobe.
This is another linen tank in navy, and I found it in the TALBOTS Red Door Sale.
They still have some in XS…TALBOTS Linen Blend Tank Cabo Stripe. This indigo is so dark that it almost looks black and went with several pieces I packed.
I enjoyed the stripes so much that I am sure I will continue to wear them now back at home…they are a new favorite for me as I feel confident wearing the style.
A note about the outfit featured in TRAVEL READY FASHIONS AT LOFT.
I still like it and I am glad to have it to wear at home…but I did not take it.
After laying all the clothing out and desiring that it all work together, this shade of green would have only provided one look. So it stayed home.
I am wearing it here though and still think it is fun. Stripes are on trend for fall too…as I wrote yesterday.
MY ALASKAN CRUISE WARDROBE FAVORITES: DINNER STYLE
Here is the area where other ladies went bigger than I did.
I decided for dresses to take the washable silk dresses I showed you during the wedding posts which I purchased at a local boutique.
They roll up and roll out so easily. One of the dresses has a separate top, that I am wearing here, as a way to cover the arms.
I did not take any formalwear or cocktail looks…they just take up so much room.
It was fun though to watch the fashion show on board during some of the dinners!
I loved those who did decide to go big and sparkly.
For the favorite dinner look, I am showing you today, the top and pants were easy packs.
I took three Clara Sun Woo pieces…they pack so well…no wrinkles and lots of versatility.
Click here for a discount Clara Sunwoo Travel Clothing Discount.
Then look for the KICK FRONT HIGH SLIT PANTS…they are great for a special dinner anywhere.
I wore this look to a special Sushi & Saki event.
Mr. B and I love good sushi. We ate here three times during the cruise!
They had a fabulous lobster roll.
And I have a new favorite…green tea/matcha ice cream! And Mochi, of course. So good!
MY ALASKAN CRUISE WARDROBE FAVORITES: ABOUT THAT SCARF
The scarf/wrap I am wearing is my Alaskan cruise souvenir.
I love to find something by a local artist that is unique to the place I am visiting.
I already shared that the cute town of Skagway is mostly local vendors and artists.
We meandered into Boreal Artworks on Broadway, and my eye immediately went to a display of beautiful colorful 100% wool scarves.
The owner of the shop is the aunt of the talented artist, Stephanie Ryan.
The aunt knits pieces for the shop and also sells Stephanie’s artwork. She is holding the piece which inspired the scarf.
The scarf is part of a collection from North End Gallery called Art Scarves of the Yukon, and this one features the cranberries that grow along the Taku River.
Find Stephanie’s Highbush Cranberries Taku River Scarf here. I love it so much and know I will wear it often…the perfect souvenir for me.
I also loved the unique creations we discovered at The Local Jeweler in Skagway.
However, the pricing was too much for me to justify a purchase.
We had a lovely talk with shop owner, Murat Ozuzun, and he praised the work that he and his wife who also runs this shop do in this small community.
He loves living and working there.
It is worth a visit if you happen to be on an Alaskan cruise which includes a Skagway shop.
I wish I could’ve brought one of these lovely pieces home! They were creative, stunning designs.
Finally a note about my two handbags which are featured within this post.
My main travel bag was a Baggallini handbag that I have owned for a few years.
They specialize In travel bags and I love all the pockets and security features.
For evenings, I also tossed in the Kate Spade wristlet purchased for the wedding, and I am so glad I did…it worked well.
I purchased it at Dillard’s in the spring and they carry other versions, but this one is not online.
The only images I have remaining to show you are looks from two days in Seattle.
I will show you these next week.
Thank you so much for being here…please leave comments or questions about my Alaskan cruise wardrobe favorites…
If any of you are in the group who dress to the nines for the formal evenings on Alaskan cruises, please share what you wear and how you pack it. I would love to know!
