Ski Sweater on the Slopes

I have a full recap coming your way later this week, but I had the best time in Aspen over the weekend. (Even though I was so sick. 😷) I came home on Sunday to a deep freeze in Chicago and have been wishing I was back on the snow-covered slopes ever since! When it’s warmer in the mountains than in Chicago, you start to think you’re doing something wrong. Who wants to plan a trip back to Aspen before the season is over? Count me in!

Take It Outside

I’m writing this post as it’s currently -1° (Fahrenheit, without windchill) in Chicago. My weather app says that it currently feels like -17°. 😳 Hopefully today is the last day of the dangerously low temperatures because it’s almost impossible to convince myself to go outside, let alone walk anywhere! Back when it was a balmy 41° a few weeks ago, I ventured out to the path along Lake Michigan for a nice little walk to clear my head. I live just a half mile from the lake, and I’m embarrassed to say that I definitely do not take advantage. I remember seeing this photo that Carly posted a few weeks ago and thinking, “Man, I really wish I lived near the water.” *lightbulb moment* Have I actually lost…

Headed to Aspen!

I’ve been to quite a few different ski resorts out West… Sun Valley, Big Sky, Breckenridge, Winter Park, but I haven’t been to Aspen yet. Located in the Rockies in Colorado, Aspen is a ski resort town known for it’s luxe restaurants, boutiques, and more! I’m headed there today and I could not be more excited!

Some ski-towns are more laid back than others, but pretty much all of them are simply relaxed. Aspen has a glitz and glam reputation, but I’ve heard that the locals are just as down-to-Earth as the rest of the resorts in Colorado and that Aspen offers a little bit for everyone. I’m staying at the Sky Hotel, have you been?

Winter White

Oh, Chiberia. I was sort of hoping you’d never come! It’s been C-O-L-D in Chicago these past few weeks, which has made getting dressed for meetings all sorts of challenging. I’m not really into the whole sleeping-bag-coat thing, so I’ve been sticking to layering a thermal under my sweaters, opting for turtlenecks (#twistmyarm .. JK, I have a real obsession with turtlenecks for some unknown reason), wearing a beanie always, and warm wool coats.

Seavees Sneakers

With an exaggerated ruffled lapel and blush pink sneakers and a pink bag to match, I wore a pair of army green moto jeans to give my ultra-feminine details a little bit of juxtaposition. The end result is a look that’s easy to wear on the weekends… The camel-colored jacket, cream sweater, and olive pants keep things neutral, no matter what pop of color you decide to go with. In my case, you can never go wrong with a bit of blush pink!
