“Alaska Casual”

Last night, my boyfriend and I went out to this bistro, pretty much what counts as fine dining up here. Now, we like to look nice on our dates. You know, skirts and dresses for me, nice pants and a button-up for him.

We were a little disappointed that no one else seems to be too concerned about this.

Seriously, when the poor, teenage couple is the best dressed in the bistro, people have taken “Alaska Casual” a little too far.

I mean, if people don’t have super-nice clothes, that’s fine. But I’m pretty sure they can dress better for a bistro date than a tye-dye t-shirt and denim shorts.

Do people dress up more other places? Because Alaska is super laid-back and casual, so I have no clue if this is normal for people to wear jeans on fancier dates.

It was very nice for us though 🙂

So do people dress up where you live? Do you dress up for dinner dates?

    Go for it! It’s so much fun to dress up to go out, even if everyone else is really casual. For my sister’s 18th birthday, we got about 6 of us together, put on prom dresses, went to dinner, and then went to Glow-Putt 🙂

    The only time I’ve ever been on a date, it was to a military ball, so it was really formal. I guess I’m not very helpful.

    Every where I have ever lived, tye-dye and shorts would not be considered dressed up. I think it’s a wonderful thing that you and your boyfriend dressed up. It shows you have a sense of style and class and you were brought up correctly. As for your friend that dressed in prom dresses to go glow-putting, GREAT IDEA! No matter what you are doing, always look your best!


  3. We just got back from Alaska, and we observed the same. In the very nicest places, people were wearing just any old thing, except maybe some of the singles . . . in a hot spot. But then, we are living in Florida. Words cannot express what we see here.


Whatcha thinking?
