What To Wear Skiing

To say that I was nervous to go skiing was an understatement. However, if you look the part you can be the part. My first order of business before my trip – find the perfect outfit! I had been lusting over ski outfits for months and I knew there was one place that had it all – Saint Bernard. I found exactly what I was looking for! An outfit that was chic, not ordinary, and would stand the test of time. My favorite part of the look were my Erin Snow Slim Leg Ski pant (which are on sale). I literally had women stop me and ask where my pants were from! Each woman said she hated how baggy  her pants were and had been searching for a skinny pant. My husband was worried the pants wouldn’t be warm enough but his worries were unnecessary as the pants were extremely warm! They were perfect from the slopes to après ski! Not only were women on the slopes wanting to know about my pants but women at the Ritz also came up asking where my cute red pants were from!

If you need ski outfits or any type of ski gear I would recommend going to Saint Bernard now. Everything is on sale which makes it the perfect time to stock up. There is nothing worse than regretting not buying something on sale and then having to pay full price later.

Everlane Cashmere Sweater

Everlane Cashmere sweater (14 color options)

There are a few things that I will never not have in my closet. A good pair of skinny jeans, a classic white button-up blouse, a leather jacket, a great pair of sneakers and my cashmere crewneck sweaters from Everlane. Besides my obvious love affair for Everlane, with their minimal and classic approach to clothing, I love that I can wear these sweaters from fall to spring and again the next year. The quality, cashmere, and craftsmanship is amazing! I literally wear these EVERY week in the cooler months. You can wear them alone, over a blouse, under a blazer, dress them up or down. They are the quintessential “closet staple” item.

If the word cashmere, because of the price tag associated with it, has already lost you. Stay a bit longer! Cashmere can usually be anywhere from $200-$700, making it quite the investment piece. Guess what? Everlane sells these sweaters for $100! Now you can have classic at a bargain! It doesn’t matter when you purchase these, just that you do! I promise you, you will forever be grateful you did!

p.s. If your sweaters ever pill, I use this magical tool given to me by my dear friend Debby. It is amazing at removing any pilled fabric and doesn’t damage your garment.

* I also swear by their 100%  silk blouses! I have this one in three different colors! 

The Transition Outfit

Can I just be honest for a second. I have been looking at my favorite online stores (Shopbop, Nordstrom, Zara, Net-a-Porter) every day for the past few weeks and to say I am uninspired is an understatement. This time of year is always so hard, especially in Texas. The temperature changes probably 20 degrees every other day. One day it is 80 and rainy, the next it is 55 and sunny. So this being said, I totally get why designers, shall we say, have their hands tied this time of year.

That being said, I am so happy to have pieces in my closet that work both in the winter, as well as the summer. Throw on a loose fit jean (these are under $100), a sneaker, and a sweater (love this selection) and you have the perfect transition outfit. Having a closet full of items that are classic and minimal makes it easier to mix-and-match through the year. Just some food for thought 🙂
