This post is for all my girls who have asked me what to pack for a ski vacation. If you follow along on Instagram, then you may have seen that I’ve been on a ski trip with my husband. I had my “what I packed post” ready to go for you guys for Monday, but then Cathy happened… Yes, my new super stylish friend introduced me to a few new things, and I just had to share them with you guys ASAP.
You see, I had pretty much resolved to only wear Uggs on cold weather vacations. Yeah, they’re not super duper cute, BUT they are super warm and super practical!
Then, one night on the trip, I came out in this outfit for dinner with my big, clunky Uggs, and then here Cathy comes in her cute Fly London boots! I was like,” Wait, I want her boots!!!” It was the first time I had seen a cute pair of winter boots that were stylish and practical. So practical, in fact, that as we were walking together to dinner down a snowy hill (me in my Uggs and her in her Fly boots), I was slipping and sliding all over the snow, and she was as sturdy as a tree.
How much cuter would this outfit have been with these Fly boots (no pun intended -ha!)?!?! If you’re kinda skeptical, trust me, they are darling on, and they beat all other fashionable winter boots on the market. I have looked… and looked… Cathy had the ones that tie in the back, but I also like the ones that zip on the side. Now, if you’re not in a ski town, but you still need a bit of traction I LOVE!!!! these and these.
Fur Vest- Nordstrom, Sweater- Michael Kors and Splendid for similar, Shirt- J.Crew for similar, Jeans- 7 for all Mankind, Boots- Roma, Bracelet- Giles and Brother for similar, Earrings- Argento Vivo, Ring- J.Crew for similar
Now, I have to say, one night we walked up the mountain to have dinner, and these Roma boots were perfect for this kind of serious walking. They functioned just like a Sorel boot would, but Roma is a one-for-one boot company, and you can’t beat that! I never lost traction in the snow and they are waterproof with a waterproof, insulated liner.
So in the end, you should definitly pack some Fly boots, so you can look as chic as Cathy on your next ski vacation. Oh, and wear MAC’s Modesty lip color that Cathy also turned me on to (I’ll post a picture of it on Instagram tomorrow). And, I guess what I learned is, you can pretty much take all of your normal, layered, winter outfits and just change out your shoes to some legit winter shoes. Oh and, of course, layer a warm jacket on top. I wore last years version of this staple from my closet, but I love this longer one.
