One of my Ski Outfits

Had to buy a couple of cute new ski outfits. I ordered this and another two from Gorsuch catalog early last week and they arrived quickly. They keep me warm and dry. This one, with the jacket, is silver. I went crazy and bought an all white outfit and an all black outfit. When I fall into the snow, hubs can’t find me if I’m wearing the all white. I may have to sell them if we return to Florida next year. I don’t see skiing much more in my future, but for now it’s been a blast! Hope to return to Connecticut on Thursday!

It is fun if you stick to the beginner slopes. Thank you! I love the jacket and everything else. I saw some cute summer dresses when I was looking at the site, but had to put them out of my mind for now.

@DianneN You can always buy them now and wear later. Nothing wrong with that!

@AngelisaQT True, but they would be too hot for South Florida where we usually live from December to June.

Do not forget the appointment for your vaccine. You could always go skiing every year since you are having so much fun. That outfit is really nice.

My vaccine appointment is at the top of my mind. Are you going to get the vaccine? Thank you! Ski clothes are so pretty. I had a difficult time deciding what to get. I would still prefer to be in Florida during my winters. I'm getting a bit sick of looking at snow.

@DianneN The 28th they are making appointments for the vaccine for 65 and older so we are calling that day for an appointment.

You would blend into the snow with this one. Enjoy and have a safe trip home.

I just knew you would get white! But it's good because white and black go with everything. Oh - but I didn't think about you getting camouflaged in the snow . Is this something you would wear on your winter walks in CT too?

@thelme55 Thanks. It won't happen, because I only stick to the baby slopes. I'm too chicken to try the other slopes. I can guarantee that I would wind up at the bottom of something.

I also love all white for the snow, I have a white Fusalp "Montana" skiing suit that I really like and I wear when we spend a day in a snowy place. I hope you can sell it next year.

The one in the photo is mostly silver. I shouldn't have any problem selling them, but I will miss them. Half the fun of skiing are the clothes.

@LadyDuck The same with me. I love wearing white in the winter, too, except for white shoes. I have gorgeous white boots with a bit of python trim. I just don’t touch the python when I put them on.

Great outfit. How long have you been on vacay now? It seems like a month or more. 25 days until spring!!! Now hubs is starting to vacillate on the Florida trip. I think it's too far for us to drive...maybe he thinks so too.

Thanks!!!! Almost two weeks not counting one night back in CT, so hubs could get his second vaccine. Oh, no! Perhaps you could break the trip up with lots of stops along the way. How many miles is it?

@DianneN 1,422 one way. We have a lot of stops planned; but that's a lot of driving for my old hubs, even though I will be doing some driving too. His driving makes me very nervous these days!

@DianneN time for laundry. Something that I hate to do but it is something I cannot leave behind my weekend schedule. I am about to put some loads in the washing machine but decided to go back to bed and MyLot for at least 1 hour.

I bet you look good in all of them, too. I've been skiing once. I took a bad tumble and didn't want to do it again.

Aww, thanks. I look good enough to be seen in public, but that's about it. I can understand a bad tumble turning you off. I've had several today as a matter of fact, and to top it off, each was on the beginner's slope.

@DianneN You're welcome. Yeah, I was on the beginner's slope. The instructor said I twisted my ankle. I stayed in the sports shelter until my friend showed up for me. I just talked with people for several hours.

You look great in the photo. Hard to believe your a Grandma! Heh. I didn't learn to ski until I was 22 (in the mountains near Seattle), so it's something I was OK at, but not great at. I'm not sure what my knees would have to say about it now.

That’s not me in the photo, but I wish! I first went skiing in the “mountains” of CT when I was 17. It scared the heck out of me. Still does, but it was fun while it lasted.

@DianneN I am a conservative skier. I enjoy it, but don't pretend to be good at it. I'm jealous of the 5-year-olds that go speeding between my legs (kidding) and on down the slope.

@TheHorse My grandkids skied without poles soon after they learned how to walk. Those are the ones I truly admire.

And have you seen the weather lately? I don't know about Florida, but recent winter-storms (when it's ALMOST SPRING) have caused a lot of problems in Texas, Oklahoma (and a little bit in Arkansas and in several other states).
