One of the joys of living in Boone, North Carolina is the opportunity to go skiing (almost) all winter long! Beech, Sugar, and App Ski Mountain are all within a quick drive, and even give students killer deals so we can take advantage of being so close.
While I love to ski, I do not go near enough! But you will never find me far from the après-ski activities.
When I stumbled upon this sweater waiting to check-out at J. Crew, I knew it was perfect for the winter season. Especially in Boone when it can be mid 50s one day and snow the next… You never really know when winter will end.
(That’s an exact representation of what I look like while skiing.)
Ever since I started wearing uniforms in 3rd grade, I have loved plaid skirts. This one included. I got it from J. Crew a few years ago and consider it a winter staple.
These green suede boots are everything to me. I found them in the sale section for $15!! I justified it because even if I wear them once (I’ve worn them more than that..) it would be worth it. I’m so glad I have them in my boot collection. They add the perfect amount of sass to any outfit.
On the coldest days in Boone, we typically still have class… Not fair, I know. While at home over Christmas, I went to paint pottery and made my own coffee cup. I figured it was a subtle way to express my attitude towards being at school with snow on the ground.
I love homemade things because the imperfections make it perfect, and I get to tell people that I made it myself! Feel free to make one of your own. It usually adds a smile to someone’s face in class.
And for a coffee lover like me, I don’t ever give a sip.
Shout out to Kate Davis for the photos, as always.
