The stores in Telluride were full of down-filled minis, to the point that I actually carried one over to an associate and brandishing the thing asked, "What in the world does one do with this?"
Tights and boots. (Alrighty then. So off I go to the Interwebs where the copy describing a North Face product unfortunately monikered, the Thunder Skirt, advises: "Look way cute whether you're at a condo, cabin, yurt, or snowshoeing with a special somebody. You won't just look cute, you'll also stay warm because this skirt has 800-fill goose down insulation keeping you nice and toasty all winter long."
Has this copywriter ever been snowshoeing? You want frostbit lady parts, you wear a skirt in the backcountry. The way the wind blows in the Rockies? For pity's sake!
But it got me thinking, how much better to rock a much-more slimming, more comfortable wool version, at work or curled in front of the fire post snowshoe?
Hence the restyle of my black knit pencil skirt (pattern available here) ala Telluride. Pair it with thick leggings and winter accessories and off you go. It looks so adorable, I might have to dig out my old Lopi and take it for a spin in the wind.
