Totally 80s Retro Ski Weekend

Her Outfit: Retro One-Piece Ski Outfit {ebay, similar here, here, here & a ton here} // JammyPack   
My Outfit: Retro Surf Style Windbreaker // Metallic Liquid Leggings {I wear a size S // Aubrey has the same pair and wears a M. They are water resistant but not waterproof.}
 Check out fellow Shark Tank company, Tipsy Elves, for easy 80s Ski looks! 

If you know me well you know there is only one think I love more than beautiful, blog-worthy clothing and events. And that my friends, the complete opposite of blog-worthiness.... 80s ski weekend and the correspondingly outrageous outfits! 

Aubrey and I stumbled upon 80s Weekend at Beech Mountain our senior year at Appalachian State and we've been hooked ever since. We literally block off our calendar months in advance every year! Everyone dresses in their wildest neons, retro ski one pieces and fanny packs to "butters the gnar" with all of the other avid 80s lovers.

The entire weekend is packed with thematic events including Packman competitions, trivia nights, and apparel contests. The best part? Definitely the immediate camaraderie! Everyone you meet is instantly a new friend! It's simply the best! 

Anyway, 80s ski weekend was this past weekend, so here are a couple of pics from the chaos, including some of our new friends! {I apologize in advance for all of the iPhone pics, I wasn't really trying to bring the good camera out on the slopes.} 









Whelp, that was my weekend! I hope you all had a great one, as well!

  14. I'm actually scarily obsessed with your bright jacket! Sometimes I think 80's fashion wasn't so horrible at times, but then I remember how much I love fashion now haha. It looks like you had a great time!
