It's no secret that Jonny and I escape to the mountains pretty much every chance that we get! After our adventures last week, I got quite a few notes that a lot of you guys have some fun mountain getaways coming up. Instead of writing each of you with the same packing list, I thought I should share what I pack in my ski bag here.
I always start with a few cozy sweaters that I can curl up with after skiing or wear in town after dinner. This JOA sweater is one of my favorites, so soft (not itchy) and long enough to wear with leggings. I always throw in as many leggings as I can because I end up wearing them snowshoeing or under my ski pants (no need for real long johns anymore). I like these because they hit right at my ankle and don't scrunch up in my ski boot. I shared my favorite coats here, mine is sold out, but it has been great to have a warm coat that is also appropriate for a nice evening. This one is gorgeous and under $130. When we are in the mountains Jonny and I always remind each other to constantly reapply sunscreen because it is so easy to get burned. I like SPF 50 from Dermalogica.
As for ski attire, since I was a little girl, I have worn Spyder. My whole family has actually. Spyder is a Colorado company and their pieces are super warm (I run cold all the time!) which is always important to me. They have also stepped up their design game and I have been really impressed! If you are a fur fan like I am this jacket is er, fur you! I have also tried on some adorable TopShop snow apparel, however have not tested it in the snow, but I think this orange jacket is super cute and has great price! The last thing that I pack (other than mittens,goggles, helmut, skis, hats) are after ski boots and right now I am loving these duck boots which are a serious steal ($29). Stanley chewed mine #typical so will be purchasing a new pair before we head on our next trip. These exact boots are girls sizes (I am wearing a girls 4 (womens 6-6 1/2). They are also available in women's.
Safe snowy travels, I can't wait to hear how they go!
