I've always fancied a ski holiday, in fact from a very young age I remember day dreaming about learning to ski, but have never got around to it. It would be a dream to take my kids and Granddaughter skiing, and if we were ever to go, then Polarn O. Pyret would be the ideal people to kit out the kids in cosy ski wear. I was really pleased to discover that they are involved with Mark Warner’s bloggers challenge #3. A lovely brand who sell gorgeous kids clothing from ages 0 - 12 years. Their outwear particularly appeals to me because I do love to see the kids wrapped up warm on a cold day.
If we were to take a ski trip then the warm clothing I would pick from Polarn O. Pyret for my eight year old Granddaughter would be comfortable, breathable and most importantly, warm and waterproof. Layers are the key to comfort and warmth, from the cold slopes to stopping for lunch in a warm restaurant, easily peel-able clothing is essential.
- Layer One - Thermals. These are a definite must for spending long periods of time in the snow. I love the Merino wool collection, its Swedish snowflake design is so cute. I just can't help but love them.
- Layer Two - Fleece and Trousers. A warm fleece is so important especially for when your child gets too warm and wants to remove their coat. I have picked a wind and water resistant fleece for extra protection from the weather. Comfy trousers are crucial for all the physical activity on the slopes and I have picked some stylish white denim that will look great with the red items.
- Layer Three - Ski Jacket & Waterproof Trousers. A warm padded ski jacket is really essential and it also needs to be waterproof for skiing. I like the jacket I picked because it has a cosy fleece lining and thumb holes at the wrists for extra warmth. Waterproof trousers are also important for protection against the cold icy snow.
- Accessories - Hat, Gloves & Socks - I picked some cute red thermal socks that match the thermal under garments, a gorgeous red snowflake design hat and black gloves that are Windproof and water-resistant. I also love that the gloves have a dirt repellent finish - Genius!
