Winter Weather Wear

This week’s Friday Fancies theme is Apres Ski which is appropriate given that I’m leaving for a ski vacay in Vermont in 2 weeks. I’m absolutely terrible and have shown no signs of getting better, but it’s the effort that counts, right?

I probably won’t change out of leggings and rag socks the whole trip. It will just be a matter of what sweater I put on and whether I’m wearing bean boots and a coat, ski pants and a ski jacket, or lounging around in slippers. As far as these outfits go, I’ve wanted a toggle coat for years and I think they look so adorable with bean boots, however for now it’s just on the wish list. I love the gray leggings for switching it up from usual black and though I can’t stand cable knit, I really like the single cable up the middle of this sweater. It makes it interesting without adding the bulk of an entire sweater in cable knit.

I really wasn’t planning on having this post ready to go tonight, but thanks to constant jack hammering over the past couple hours outside my house I’ve been looking for ways to keep myself busy until it stops. Apparently it’s just a gas leak, no big deal, right?

    I have those boots from LL Bean and they are the best thing for the New England Winters. I also feel your pain as I am the world's worst skier.Alana

    A 2 week vacation to just about ANYWHERE sounds wonderful right about now, but enjoy your time in Vermont. It sounds like the perfect place to cuddle up & stay cozy!Happy Friday!Mendi @ Her Late Night Cravings

    Leggings are SO essential for apres ski! And yay for a vacay in Vermont 🙂 And how is it that I've lived in New England my entire life and I don't own a pair of those boots?! Shenanigans, I say.AlexNine to Five
