No more staring at my closet with “nothing to wear”! I just wore this summer semi-formal to a boho-chic bar on a VERY chilly and VERY windy night with some great success.

by Renae Virata | I don’t know about you, but just about my least favorite part about packing is being unprepared or overpacking. I sometimes reach this dilemma when the weather for my destination calls for chilly, rainy weather. I don’t want to pack too many bulky coats, but I want to make sure I’m literally covered. The answer: Trout Rainwear!

Are you ready for some football?! It’s that time of year, once again, to gather ’round the tube with your favorite sports fans to watch the Giants versus the Pats. But even if your team isn’t battling it out on the field, you can still look your best wherever you watch the game.

The holidays are over, but it’s still winter, right? If you are lucky enough to squeeze in a couple more good ski trips in through March, then good for you! I got some great insight from John Gates over at the fabulous European-based ski-wear boutique Jet Set for trends and tips on what to wear in the ever-popular snow sport destination, Aspen, Colorado.
