Back in Action

can i mix plaid and leopard for fall

I am back in plaid action. You know I couldn't go another post without wearing it. This time I added another favorite, leopard. There is just something about these two prints that make me smile.

Something else that makes me smile...cooler weather. My kids were in shorts and flip flops last weekend. It was gross and sad. Thankfully the weather cooled off more than twenty degrees yesterday. With all the last minute grocery getting, Christmas shopping, mail dropping and holiday tunes bopping, I needed to be comfortable and cozy. 

Wait for it...yes, this gray cable knit oversized cardigan came from Forever 21. Shocker. Believe it or not, before this one, I didn't own a sweater cardigan, at least not one as warm as this. It is a laid back, throw it on and go and perfectly paired with anything piece. It is definitely coming with me on our trip to Tahoe. 

Which reminds me, I have been meaning to ask you guys....what in the world should we pack for snow skiing? I mean, yes, I know we need warm clothes, scarves, hats, gloves, boots, etc, but is there any specific items that I might miss when packing? This is the first ski trip for all of us. I have NO CLUE what little extras need to be considered to make things run smoother. We plan on renting skis and such, but if you can think of any extras that a first timer might need, I would GREATLY appreciate it. I am not gonna lie, I am sort of scared of the thought of skis being secured (or not) to me feet. I have yet to win an award for most graceful or coordinated.
