Apres Ski: Ski Prints

Apres Ski: Ski Prints

Winter has me currently crushing on all things apres ski (as seen here). With my upcoming winter weekend trip I’m planning and pinning so many ski prints. Ski prints range from fair isle to plaid and everything in-between. Basically, all you winter favorites fit for a chalet!

Avon Zoey Knit Vest

I picked up this Avon Zoey Knit Vest from the Southwest Capsule Collection.  It technically is an Aztec print, but by pairing it with winter pieces it reads ski print.  It all comes from native prints which are all very similar.

For winter wear, I layered the Avon Zoey Knit Vest and tied the wrap belt in the back so it give is a little different shape.  Layering over a black turtleneck, Avon Sloan Turtleneck in black, lets the vest be the statement piece.

It wouldn’t be winter wear without some boots!  These glossy black Hunter boots are staples for me in the winter.  I find them be so comfortable and they work better than any boot to keep out the wet, plus they are fashion friendly!

Even though I am in mild weathered California, I still find a need for warm winter pieces.  Especially for weekend trips to snowy Tahoe!  Which is why I’m super excited of my pearl embellished knit hat find from Charming Charlie!  Perfect winter piece to go with a casual winter look.

Apres Ski is by definition the party after skiing, so what makes this look more apres ski than a sparkly statement earring!? This Avon Looped Linear Earrings glams up an otherwise super causal and functional outfit.

I think I definitely found a good look to pack for my Tahoe weekend, along with wearing it all winter long!  You can get my vest, turtleneck and earrings at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger which would also qualify you for the newest A Box!  (see more here).

APRÈS SKI PART DEUX

With all the winter weather, snow days and cold its time to embrace the cozy.  Cozy with a little luxe, that’s what apres ski is all about.  You might recall my last inspo post from last January (see here) but this time around I’m back with more!  Even if a luxe winter weekend isn’t in your plans you can at least dress like it is!  Here are some things to embrace for that apres ski life:

What makes this the perfect lake dress is the weight of the dress, it’s thick, perfect to ward off the chill coming off the lake.  The style of the dress works as a suit cover up, a lunch-ing look or worn for your lake activities.  Oh and did I mention it has pockets!  You know how I feel about a dress with pockets!

Trending Tuesday: Après Ski

If the world of alicia was the internet #apresski would totally be trending.  Now that the glitz and glam of the holidays are over the winter weather definitely has me thinking all things cozy.  I’ve been obsessing over all things suitable for a chic winter weekend.  Think cozy layers with a crisp aesthetic, functional pieces with fab details in colors of the winter sky and scene.

Apres Ski Color Inspo

The Color Pallet:  black, white, icy blues and grays make for a simplistic January pallet.  Pops of prints in fair isle, cable knit textures and even leopard look chic paired with them.

Cozy Layers:  Layer on the cozy with sweaters, knits and vests.  Layered looks achieve a level of chic a regular sweater by itself doesn’t achieve, and functionally way warmer!

Crisp Aesthetic and Cozy Textures: Maybe it’s because of the clean slate we get with the new year or that crisp clean winter air but monochromatic looks achieve a crisp aesthetic while adding in the right textures achieve that après ski chic.

Winter Weekend:  I’m ready to plan a little winter weekend getaway to Tahoe to play in the snow, take in the mountain splendor and live that cabin life!  Even if you just plan an afternoon sledding a winter weekend makes January tolerable.
