Everybody's mind is on Christmas now, but I am already thinking ahead. Just after New Year's I am going on a skiing holiday to the French Alps. Have been excited about that for several months now, because I love to ski! Unfortunately, the odds apparently aren't ever in my favour, since I dislocated my knee two weeks ago and I now need to keep using my knee at an absolute minimum. Which means that I (most likely) will not be able to shine on the slopes this year (or actually, not be able to give other people the opportunity to make fun of how bad I really am). Boohoo!
Since I organised the trip (with a group of friends from law school) I am still going, but the main consequence is that now the skis, the skiing boots and the goggles stay at home, and my 'apres-ski wardrobe' needs to be expanded. And when it comes to fashion, Kate and you, my fellow Replikaters, are always my source of inspiration!
So here's a look at Kate's skiing outfits over the years...

I feel like red, white and black is a recurring theme here. Would there be a reason for that?
And here's a look at Kate's 'off-duty' style during her visits to the Alps....

She sure loves those black furry boots!
So, here's the deal: since I now really need to add some pieces to my wardrobe for a fashionable apres-ski look, I need help from you ladies to find the most awesome items available! What are in your opinion absolute fashion essentials for the snowy slopes? What would Kate wear? Any tips on how to pass the time when everybody's away?
To gather the inspiration I started a board on Pinterest (think: cable knits, faux fur and nordic prints). If you know some great additions to it, you are very welcome to join in!
And of course I am really interested to know about your skiing plans and anecdotes ;-)
I feel like the Middletons and William are just sitting there, judging my fashion choices. The pressure's on!
