Winter Wonderland

Many times, your job can require you to go to meetings and conferences in sucky places. On the flip side, they can also send you to some ah-mazing places too! Since we're in the dead of winter, and I know some peeps heading to Colorado, Canada, Utah, etc. for such conferences, I wanted to show you some fun snow outfit options! It's like a crime not to take advantage of the winter sports on your free time in these locales;)

Okay pretties, I'm a snowboarder. I don't know much about skiing so we're going with boarding looks today. I don't want you skiiers (word? Probably not) to feel like you're getting the shaft...I'm just ignorant! Def not ashamed to admit ignorance here....

Clearly my favorite outfits are on Burton. I know, I know...so typical. I can't help it! 

I do want to give you some options on where to get gloves. I ALWAYS recommend getting the layered gloves (the ones that have a thinly layered glove under the puffy glove. Check out these two: The North Face and Marmot

For layering, I love Under Armour's Cold Gear. It keeps the heat in and makes sure you stay warm on those cold, snowy nights. 

If you're just starting out, don't go drop loads of moo-la on a new jacket and pants...get the shells and layer (an item will be labeled as a "shell" when you are on the website). Then build from there if you find you like it! It really is a great workout and SO FUN! 

If you're heading to a winter sport spot, whether it be for fun or work, I hope you have a fabulous time! Happy Shredding!!

  1. Hi Blair!

    Your post is making me want to learn to snowboard. I'm a ski-er, but I'm terrible... maybe I'd be better at snowboard. Highly unlikely, though! :)

    By the way, I've nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Check out: http://stephanieziajka.blogspot.com/2013/01/pray-more-worry-less-nominations-for.html for the button and information.

    Happy Wednesday!

  2. Thanks, Blaire for the new post. We just got back from our adventures in the Sierra Nevadas and had a blast! Prior to packing I thought, "What would Blaire bring?" (I'm a walking NorthFace advertisement on the slopes!) I do hope you'll post on cute lodge wear next!

    Hugs,

  3. Hi Blaire!

    I'm your newest follower from Bon's blog.

    I'm glad I've found another working lady in the blogsphere! Although my workplace is way casual, our finance department tends to "dress up" more than others since well, we are in finance after all (I work with artists, for what it's worth).

    Looking forward to reading more!

    1. Hi Vanessa! Thanks for stopping by!! I love new followers! :)

      What a cool job to work with artists! I wish there were times that we could dress a little more casual around here, but no can do. Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see on here!

    1. Hi Helene! Thanks for visiting and for the sweet comment.

      I wish I could afford all those looks;) You should try boarding sometime! I was just a terrible skiier so I hung up the poles.

      Thanks again!

  5. Stopping by from Life of Bon. I'm loving the idea for your blog. I also struggle to find a stylish professional look for a business casual environment since my company is pretty conservative. I'm working on stepping out.
    This is a fun post. I've had to travel to Canada in the dead of winter and that is a rough trip (just can't get enough layers!) Lately I've been traveling to Louisiana and Texas and that's challenging in the winters because the weather is so different; so much warmer than home means I have to break out another part of my wardrobe!
    I'm looking forward to following your blog!

    1. Hi Laura! Thanks for stopping by from Bon's blog! You go girl...I say 2013 is the year for stepping out:) Glad to hear you are heading to some warmer places now! I love snowboarding, but I'm definitely a beach/coastal girl at heart. Let me know if there's anything you'd like to see on here!
