I wouldn't be comnfortable wering velvet in the summer; it's always seemed like a winter fabric to me.

Sounds like a nice outfit and dressy. I would not worry about it as it would be fine...

Hi Taylor,
Yes, that outfit would be fine, especially in Alaska, it is cooler there. I've even worn a velvet pants outfit in the Caribbean and it was OK.

Taylor - your choice sounds just right. It's nice to get to wear the dressy stuff usually reserved for Christmas, New Year's Eve and weddings. Wear what you are comfortable with and be sure to get all the formal photos taken - they make great souvenirs. Have a great trip ttfn Jennifer
