I am still reminiscing about our trip to Hotel Talisa in Vail! Anytime you get to stay in the mountains for a night means two things. One, you are gonna be up early to hit the slopes and avoid all traffic – YAY! Two, you get to Après Ski aka after ski happy hour! Might be my favorite part of skiing… maybe so, maybe not…
Most of the time you are headed straight from the slopes to the bars so ideally, your base layers are cute and comfortable – check out my favs here. Sometimes, you get to go home and change but again its Après Ski, which means AFTER Skiing! So 75% of people will be in ski gear so don’t get too dressed up.
My go-to outfit is black leggings, tunic/flannel/thermal top, and a beanie. The sun will set mid-Après so dress appropriately and bring a jacket! Since the Hotel Talisa is a little more upscale I swapped my normal leggings out for my Spanx leather leggings. If you don’t have these, please go buy them right now. They are soooo freaking comfortable and keep everything in place and looking good. I am actually debating getting them in “wine” too.
When I wear leggings as pants I prefer longer tops, which is why I love the tunic length of this cowl neck thermal by Splendid, its almost like a little sweater dress. My vest is actually from middle school (lol) from J.Crew, but I have linked to some similar ones here and here. And I snagged this beanie on Amazon for under $20.
