[Berit]: Since last summer, the friends I made while abroad in London and I have been planning a reunion. We chose Breckenridge, Colorado because three of the girls go to school at Boulder *cue the Chainsmokers*. This was one of those trips where literally everything went wrong – my flight was cancelled due to the worst snowstorm that CO has seen this winter, causing me to pay a chunk of money for a new flight; my friends and I got our car stuck in a snowbank; my friend lost her ski boots; I bruised my left butt cheek while trying skiing for the first time; seven of us got the stomach flu and were out of commission for an entire evening. No joke – we all sat in the living room on our last evening with the stomach flu. It was horrible. Despite all of that, we had a blast. Colorado was beautiful and I was in great company. We are already planning our next trip… sans the stomach flu.
Our first day there was a balmy -8°. Believe it or not, I got a little sunburn on my cheeks. For spending an entire day in those conditions, I was kept pretty warm. I was thankful for my thermal from Topshop’s SNO collection – super cute and super cozy. My leggings were Adidas, found at Urban Outfitters, and my headband was (of course) furry.
I was super impressed with downtown Breckenridge – it was adorable! I felt like I was in the North Pole, or my heritage country of Norway. There were tons of shops and restaurants. I wore dutch braids because they felt oh so Colorado. Top from Zara.
