What I Wore: Isn't It Iconic Dress (Modcloth), Sweater (Forever Twenty-One), Boots (Gift), Leggings (old), Necklace (etsy; gift)
On my recent Readers' Survey, one of you dear readers said how much you enjoyed Wyoming's scenery and wanted to see more of it. As a matter of fact, getting out and about more has been one of the greatest, if unexpected benefits of starting Never Fully Dressed; we appreciate where we are more. Like most of you, we find it easy to take for granted where we are. I forget that Wyoming is exotic in a sense (or at any rate National Geographic must think we are because the year I subscribed Wyoming and Montana were in the magazine in 6 out of 12 issues).
Behind me, is one such place that a magazine like National Geographic might write about. This beautiful and peaceful place, has a bit of sad history. What you see are the remains of the largest Japanese Relocation Camp in America. This once counted as the third largest town in Wyoming; after the war almost all the buildings were sold and you can still see some out on farms as barns or even housing for migrant workers (renovated, of course!). Why it's sad is obvious, but it is interesting to remember that it was not all sad. Growing up, people who had lived there during WWII would come and talk to our class. Despite the frigid weather, as children they said they enjoyed the people of the community and doing things like joining the scouts! Now the area is working to preserve the memory and history of what happened here; down the road is a museum on the subject, and where I'm standing is a memorial.
As for the outfit, there's not much to say except that it is in my closet's rotation quite a bit due to its simple and comfortable nature. Can't beat that!
