From the Hadid sisters to Kate Hudson to everyday snowbirds, Aspen is the ski city of the season.

People flock from coast to coast to this small Colorado town in their fur (faux and real) and most statement making beanies ready for a good “dump” of snow to work on their skills. Even those who can’t stand on skis (including myself), marvel in the breathtaking town and inspired by this mix of nature and redefined fashion.

Nothing helps me recharge more than being in nature. Not only is it good for my soul, but it helps inspire me and my fashion choices. Whether you are traveling to Aspen or a local ski town this season find time to get outdoors and be present in the moment.

And even if you can’t sneak away from some fun in the snow, let Aspen (or your favorite cold weather locale) inspire your everyday winter look this season.
