Though it’s sunny in these photos with just a trace of snow on the ground, the forecasters are predicting a potentially sizable storm to hit Colorado this week.  I’m ready!  I love the snow, and we are spending Thanksgiving weekend skiing in the mountains – so I want all the powder I can get in the next two weeks!  I tend to choose jeans and pants over skirts in the winter (because obviously), but these fleece-lined tights are a game-changer.  So comfy and soft – they’re like sweats!  Perfect for wearing under skirts and dresses as the weather gets colder – the tights are a must-have for casual looks or workwear.  As I’ve mentioned, I’m obsessed with my new hat and plan to bust it out at every opportunity, and these Sorel boots were a total score when I bought them last winter – they have a slight wedge heel and are outrageously comfortable.  While I own a pair of traditional Sorel snow boots, I love some of the more fashion-forward styles they’re producing, especially these and these.  Most of my winter coats are Patagoniathis one is a step up from their traditional down sweater jacket, and it’s extra warm and windproof, which I appreciate on blustery days.  Bring on the snow!
