Style Code Live: Ski Chic

I went to Sundance with Style Code Live last week!

This was my first Sundance ever, and I can't believe it took me so long to attend. I went with two friends (an actor and a casting director) and zero plans. I thrive most when I travel with barely any scheduled framework and figure it out as I go; I find that it builds a lot of character and helps me think quicker on my feet!

We went to a ton of industry networking events, a few parties, house parties, midnight shorties (where they screen a bunch of short films at midnight), and even a burlesque show. The midnight shorties were epic; you can find a list of them here.

I had an amazing, fulfilling time with the people I love. Everything was perfect but the weather. Sure, viewing it from inside a car was stunning: like something straight out of a Christmas card, or as if you're in a snowglobe. But when you're out and about literally all day, it's pretty hellacious.

You trudge through slippery melting snow, you get snowed in and have to climb through snow banks, your fingers freeze while waiting in line, and it gets to, like, one degree at night.

Function aside, looking cute in the snow is incredibly difficult. It's hard to layer while avoiding being overly bulky, and normal, essential things like using your phone are nearly impossible.

So what's a fashion lover to do? Style Code Live and I teamed up to create this perfect winter look that combines fashion and function! I stayed warm and cozy in absolutely frigid temperatures with these choice pieces available straight off Amazon.

Style Code Live is Amazon's daily online show that connects quality content with shoppable products and amazing tips and tricks from bloggers, designers, beauty experts, and celebrities. It's a must-see for people like us...I even have it bookmarked.
A near-floor length wool knit coat keeps your entire body warm (especially great for your legs, where layering can get tricky), and a staple turtleneck keeps your neck warm and removes the need for a flappy, annoying scarf (don't you hate it when scarves flap straight into your face?).

Leather gloves with wool and cashmere lining, faux fur trim, and touch screen capabilities keep you warm, dry, and in full control (these are my personal faves!). Instagramming, snapchatting, texting, calling were all fully possible without having to take off a glove and risk frostbite--kidding, maybe.

These leather fur-trim booties come weather-ready: I live for good tread and these left me feeling confident walking around in the snow, rain, and slush of the week. I can't wait to wear them at home in New York--the weather conditions here seem so mild compared to what Sundance was like!

Watch the full video feature with Style Code Live here! I had a really fun time filming this, and I hope to see some of you twinning with me on Instagram because I wear these pieces to death now!
