Casual Sunday: Après-Ski

Privet Matryoshkas and Happy Casual Sunday!! I’m in the mood to write about my style crush Elena Perminova since she has given me a bit of that winter style inspiration. You know this week my hometown finally received it’s first snowfall, (It’s even snowing on WordPress!!) but enough to cover the ground in white. There’s something beautiful in living in a place where the temperatures can dip into the negatives, it’s that glistening snow that sucks me in! I’m also reminded that the mountains nearby are open and I can start to work up the nerve to return to the mountain to do some snowboarding. Anyways this weather is made for dressing cozy, and dressing like an onion; layer after layer. I think it’s safe to say it’s time for Casual Sunday and an edition of apres-ski style + tips!

I love the look of apres-ski it’s fun, & cozy. + you don’t have to hit the slopes to wear your chunky knits, that cute chapeaux, or a pair of faux fur rimmed boots. Elena Perminova’s look embodies an apres-ski style, with a mannish quality seen in the black puffer jacket, the look is a switch up from being typical Chalet Chic. Her knitwear is so eye catching with red contrasting against beige, the colour carries itself up to her matching tuque. While her second look plays with femininity and softness, and it’s easy to mimic. Throw on a pair of boots/ uggs, a soft  furry vest (faux fur preferred) to complete the look that will be perfect for feeling cozy in all day long for a casual Sunday well spent.

Tips For your Apres-ski style starter pack (excuse the alliteration :P):

1.) Look for long, chunky sweaters with nordic motifs, or Fair Isle print

2).A pair of cozy looking boots. Anything with faux fur, a big boxy look (Like a pair of uggs)


4). Leggings, these always tuck well into boots.



Hope you enjoy the song it’s a remix of London Grammar’s Hey now, it reminds me of falling snow.
