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.

A blustery winter day is no problem when dressed for success!  Following the trends for January (as seen here) and adding my new must-haves for the new year (as seen here) definitely avoids the winter doldrums!

Start with a base in wintery icy hues!  

Cobalt Blue and Black for January

Cobalt Blue and Black for January

Just like in my January trends post cobalt blue is a major color for January.  I anchored my cobalt blue pant (mark., old) with the new mark. Effortless Edge Sweatshirt in black.  You might remember my love for the oatmeal version here, but due to popularity it’s back in black!  Let me tell you, a chic sweatshirt is a great investment for January.

Layers for January

Layers for January

The key to any winter outfit is layers!  I layered my mark. Effortless Edge Sweatshirt with a faux leather jacket (mark., old in and out of clearance) and a oversized black scarf.  On my feet I layered some fun thick socks with my fold over lace up boots (Tilly’s).

The most important accessory in January: gloves!   I’m loving the mark. Trendsetter fingerless gloves with the knit base and quilted faux leather tops.  They’re not only cute but functional and super easy to wear and keep warm.  Even though my scarf hides it, a little winter glam is a must with the mark. Twice As Nice necklace.  I like that the double v shape plays up with the zipper detailing of the mark. Effortless Edge Sweatshirt.

Obsession piece!

My latest obsession is my new mark. Style On The Run Tote.  I get a little happy every time I get to leave the house just knowing I get to pick this beauty up and carry it around.  I like it for a January bag (and beyond) with it’s structured shape and gorgeous faux-grained-leather body it goes from work to play effortlessly.  AND it has a matching pop out case that works for your tablet or your phone or whatever you want to store in there.  Could even double up as a clutch!  If you haven’t caught on I’m obsessed, like seriously obsessed.  Plus, I think the new year should start with a new bag, you know for that be more organized resolution we all make.

Your my obsession
