It's winter, you're heading to a mountain resort, cabin on a frozen lake, an igloo up north, planning to camp or glamp, or pretend to be a pioneer because you love the winter. Or maybe you lost a coin toss with your cold-weather-loving partner while thinking of sunnier places ... Cheer up. You're going to have a great time. We can help.
Remember, this is a couple's retreat and it's smack dab in the middle of the winter and even though it's going to be cold, you're still excited to get away with your better half, right? Stop packing the kids' jeans and coats; they're staying with their grandparents. You're ready for a romantic getaway, but you need to bring the right clothes.
Here's what to pack for your cold-weather getaway.
Listen up, it's going to be chilly out there and you're not going to like it unless you layer up. The pitch was that there'd be a hot tub on a mountain top but you know you can only sit in a hot tub for, at best, one hour. So let's see what layers we can manage to fit in the suitcase for the remaining hundred hours
You're going to be inside and wanting to lounge about like you're at home and the best way to do that is to grab that women's flannel tunic and slip into your yoga pants. Some are made to be worn like long underwear so if you do need to throw on a pair of women's jeans as an added layer, all the power to you. Also, not a bad reason to get over to that yoga class. You two can go together. How cute.
You're going to catch up on a lot of sleep. It's a vacation. Flannel pajamas and slippers better be in there. The one thing you should remember though: snoring doesn't stay at home. Bring earplugs too.
Even though you have that packable winter coat, you're also going to want a good shell rain jacket. Life's great when you're not stuck in the middle of a cold rain, but if you're prepared with a packable raincoat you'll be glad you're the smart one.
What's a vacation without a good fleece? It's the best in-between when it's a bit chilly and you're not willing to throw a big coat on. This men's quarter-zip fleece is a surefire option when you're getting toasty with some hot cocoa and a crackling fire. It's the ultimate cuddle choice.
