Last weekend was my final couple days of vacation. I'd spent plenty of time vegging out in my robe and slippers all week, so it was time for me to embrace the snow outside. I went cross-country skiing with my dad and sisters, and never giving up a chance to come-up with a cute outfit, I started with the essentials then added girly, yet sporty, touches. My basis was black leggings and layers of shirts under a sporty, fitted jacket. I put on pink socks to keep my toes warm and a matching headband to keep the chill from my ears. I dashed around the house looking for a cute vest, but I couldn't find one that didn't clash until I remembered a hound’s-tooth one I bought last winter. It was thick enough, while the stylish black and white pattern made my look complete.
We had a lot of fun skiing through the woods behind my house and, although I haven't spent much time on skis, I started to really enjoy the sport. I'm not the most graceful skier, my older sister skied when she was younger and my eight year old sister has taken to it so quickly that at this rate she'll be in the Olympics in a few years! I, on the other hand, am the least poised and I tend to loose my balance easily. Let's just say by the time we were back home, I was covered in fluffy snow and had too many bruises to count. But that won't prevent me from getting back on those skiis! Hopefully we can go on another weekend escapade so I can better my skills and someday survive going downhill without falling on my back!
