Summit a freezing cold Rocky Mountain in middle of the winter. (I think. I forgot what she told me this was, if she told me at all. At any rate, I feel cooler on this hot August night just looking at this photo.)
This is my cool friend who is currently hanging out in Alaska, hiking on glaciers and sticking her head down abandoned mine shafts. She stays toasty during all this activity in a down skirt. Yep — they make ’em. Apparently they’re a Scandinavian and Alaskan specialty. I don’t know why they haven’t caught on yet. You know, for people who want to look good while staying warm.
Brands to google: Mountain Hardware, PKHoop, Pak Skirt.
But honestly, who can obsess about skirts when there’s scenery like this in the background?
