The long dress and jacket are a material that is easy to pack and does not wrinkle and the jacket is really the part that makes the outfit look more dressy. But Yes I am packing a shaw/wrap because I don't want to be cold.
Yes I do want to look sort of elegant in a low key way. Also reading that formal night on the Alaska cruise is dressier then other cruises, now that surprises me.
If I find another nice formal type outfit this could be fun!!!
Husband is going to rent the tux. This saves him from having to pack a suit.
