On our forth day in Alaska, we took the Prince William Sound cruise out of Whittier. We were blessed with perfect weather on this day as well. It was bright and sunny, allowing clear visibility to glaciers. We enjoyed the blue glaciers and the sounds of glacier calving without freezing and shivering to death. I enjoyed this setting even more cos I got a chance to wear the midi-skirt I have been longing for. I had almost dropped this skirt from my itinerary (thinking I am being too optimistic for Alaska). For those who haven’t been there, Alaska could be cloudy, rainy, breezy and cold even in Summers. But being optimistic paid off!
The midi-skirt is so vintage and takes me to the old times where English wore pearls and drank tea in teapots and felt all princely. I have attempted to blend in vintage with modern. I’ve put together a long sleeved bateau neck top, knee covering A-line pleated skirt with simple pearls. I have tried to bring my playfulness into this look with the ducklings on the print. The pleats make it formal but the print keeps the tone very casual.
I say this to myself so many times and here I say it loud, again: I don’t need to have a skinny frame to look stylish! I can resort to clothes that suit my body type and make me feel graceful in it. Like my husband says, wear clothes that fit you (not the ones you want to fit into).
