Slopeside Chic

I have wanted to go skiing for as long as I can remember, but as I’ve never even put my foot anywhere near a ski before together with the fact I’m not the most sporty person, I’ve always let the fear of being terrible get in the way. 

My boyfriend and I have talked about going together, but we’ve never got round to booking it. He’s an experienced skier and goes every year, and as he’s booked to go again late February with his friends, his surprise for me on Christmas Day was the last thing I expected!

On Christmas Day as I had finished opening my presents from him, he revealed to me he’d booked a week’s skiing holiday on the 1st Feb for the both of us to Val D’Isere in France! I’m so excited! To get some practice before we go, he has also booked a 3 hour lesson at the snow centre in Hemel Hampstead so I hopefully get to know the basics and it’s an opportunity to build my confidence before I get there. 

Onto the most important aspect of a skiing holiday…what to wear! This is the perfect excuse to go shopping (lets be honest though, do we ever need an excuse), and I’ve already began trawling the internet for bits and pieces to take with me. 

I’ve made a lookbook below featuring my favourite items in case anyone else is going skiing soon and is looking for some inspiration. These pieces will have you looking the most stylish on the slopes! 

Are you going skiing, or have been before? Do you have any tips for me? I’d be forever grateful for any advice!
