It has been raining, actually pouring, here in the Bay Area which means it is snowing over in the mountains! We were fortunate to make it up to Tahoe for the 3-day weekend (MLK Jr.) to get some good boarding in while the weather has been playing nice. It’s not my first time in the snow but for some reason I did not own any snow boots. So this year, instead of braving the cold in my fake Uggs as I have been doing, I decided to invest some money into snow boots. I did my research and decided based on my estimated usage (occasional use), and desired fashion look, the Sorel’s would be best for me.
Key to being in the snow; jacket MUST go over your butt…keeps your whole back and core warm!
Since I typically run cold I wanted to get the ones that go as far up my leg as possible for maximum warmth. These boots typically run $180-$200 depending on the website. Right now they are on sale at Sports Basement for about $100 (link below).
Dressing up for the snow is all about layering up, but there are still tons of way you can still be a little fashionista!
Bottoms: I like to wear leggings because they are more air-tight on my body than jeans and/or pants. Obviously leggings alone are too cold, so I wear Faux-Fur Lined Leggings under for added warmth.
It was so cold in S. Lake Tahoe, but thank God for the Sorel’s they seriously kept my feet warm
Top: I layer big time up top for the cold. I wore a simple long-sleeve black thermal with a thick knit sweater and a Utility Parka (Faux-Fur Trimmed) that go over your booty to keep myself warm and bundled.
Thick knit sweater and parka for the win!
Do not forget gloves, scarf, and a beanie! Hope you all have a fantastic week!
