Winter Style

We popped into Alpine Sport Shop the other day, petted the lovely Gilda (pictured below) and while we wanted to linger by their unbelievably charming fireplace we had to stock up on stuff for a trip up to Lake Placid next week. Here are our top picks for style on the ski mountain this winter, stay tuned for our top apres ski spots in town as well (hint: if it has a fireplace it's probably on our list).

Okay we'll admit, the idea of a down filled skirt (even for in the lodge having a drink) seemed ridiculous until we saw these. They might, just might, change our minds. Stuffed with warm 700-fill-power down, the Pip is built with 100 percent polyester ripstop to stand up to everyday wear; the contoured waist zips and snaps shut. Plus two handwarmer pockets. Now the problem is to decide which color to get it in.

A little bit of fur, a whole lot of warm, find Marmot styles like this one at Alpine. Also at Alpine we picked up THE MOST COMFORTABLE SKI SOCK EVER. Seriously. Euro Socks. Get some. And these Burton floral print gloves are just pretty, plain and simple.

Ski goggles, we have a love hate relationship with you, but we just love these.

Kiehl's lip balm in a no nonsense, no shine formula.

Shearling infinity scarf is A YES. 100%. And one pom pom is not enough on a hat, we need three please.

The only thing that could improve Alpine's little set up here would be if they served Hot Toddies
