Hi y'all! I'm back from my snowboarding trip in the French Alps! I'm happy to report that I did not break any arms or legs.. though I did wipe out quite a few times.
But then again,.. if you don't wipe out and dive face first in the deep snow or.. slide down an icy slope on your tush, then you're not snowboarding properly!!
Usually when I'm on a snowboarding trip, I don't pack anything remotely glamorous. It's all about staying warm and being comfortable.. whether it is on the mountain or in the chalet.
This year though, after seeing so many fashion bloggers posting their outfits in gorgeous snowy conditions.. I just *had* to bring my stuff along. I mean, the weather in the Netherlands might be cold, rainy and windy.. snowy and picturesque, it definitely is not!
Me being sensible, I opted for a red sweater dress, polka-dot tights, a grey jacket and knee-high boots with a chunky 5 inch heel. Outside in the snow, the boots were perfect and I had plenty of grip. However, as soon as I went inside.. the smooth floor tiles in the kitchen made it almost impossible to walk! :-P
Now that would have been embarrassing, right? "Did you break your arm/leg while doing a 360 with the snowboard?" .. "No, I slipped while wearing snow covered heels inside the chalet because I was dumb." >_<
Fortunately, everything went without a hitch!
By the way, this photo-shoot was a prime example of dressing up for the photos and videos. I think this all lasted no more than 30 minutes.. after which I changed right back into my comfy clothes. :-P
My friends actually suggested that I should have brought something ridiculous with me as well, like a very short mini-dress and strappy heels, though I did not. Do you think I should have? ;-)
My friend who doing the photography didn't mind taking some video clips as well.. so yay!
