Sure, we here at FOAM may already be knee deep in swimwear samples, but the truth is we're still in the midst of the winter season and we haven't quite had our fill of warm and fuzzy fashion. And yes, we realize the irony of the 70 degree weather we're having in Southern California right now– but a girl can dream. That's why we compiled a list of the wares we'd pack for a high-class Alaskan adventure (sled dogs and roaring fire not included):

(Clockwise, from top left)

1. Miansai Hook Bracelet
A completely hand-made cord bracelet with a vintage fishhook cast clasp for showing salmon who's boss.
J. Crew, $55

2. One Sketch a Day: A Visual Journal
Could be handy for a quick landscape sketch, or for telling your best friend she can have your shoe collection if you encounter large bears.
Urban Outfitters, $15.95

3. Blanket-Stripe Jewelry Roll
Perfect for packing up delicate jewelry you won't be needing on an overnight backpacking trip. But hey, you never know.
Madewell, $38.00

4. Wool Heater Hat
You know what they say: If your feet are cold, put on a hat.
Fjallraven, Call for Pricing

5. Minnetonka Tramper Ankle Boot
The old stand-by for fringed, frost-free feet. Plus, they double up as festival wear when you get back to L.A.
Madewell, $55.95

6. Mini Birch Bark Canoe Earrings
These tiny canoes are actually carved from north wood trees!
Native Harvest, $29.95

7. We Are Handsome Grizzly Bodysuit
Places we want to see bears: on our suits, in a hot tub. Places we don't want to see bears: pretty much everywhere else.
Pretty Pennies, $239.99
