    @AEV—Steamboat can be downright warm on the slopes during the day; forty degrees feels hot with very dry air, high altitude, and bright sunlight. You don’t need a jacket on a sunny afternoon in March. I’ve gone skiing in bike pants there in March. But it starts to get very cold after the sun goes down.

    @Brad.  Being a native son of LA, Your entire wardrobe skews towards warmer weather year round.  The hard and fast rules of fall and spring dates are more flexible in LA.  I say if it’s cold, wear whatever keeps you warm.  If warm, where lighter clothing…not cords because winter in LA and 72’.  Here in Scottsdale, the first chilly temps we get…60’s…we get a kick out of the East coasters breaking out the fur, leather, boots, etc. Only to return to the lighter fabrics and shades within days or sometimes hours.

    Nevermind she is without parka, nor proper footwear for the slopes. She is smashing! The red pants and the black sweater really make this outfit, as do the boots. Well thought out and executed! Very sexy redhead and very sexy outfit that works well for her!

    I have a question that isn’t really relevant to this entry, but I was hoping to get your take on the subject nonetheless. When is it no longer appropriate to wear a fair isle sweater? I live in Los Angeles and it was in the mid-50s this morning (which is COLD for Southern California), and I wanted to throw on a fair isle sweater for work (it’s a very casual office, so sweaters and chinos are perfectly acceptable). I decided I shouldn’t wear the sweater for fear that some might find that sort of attire too “Christmas-y” now that we’re in March. What do you think?

    @AEV—I typically dress in layers, then shed when necessary. I can’t speak for anyone else. I do know the weather in Steamboat warmed up after the wedding I attended. And for what it’s worth, near dusk—when my photo was taken—it was about 32 degrees.

    Nice look, though I’m curious how it is that you required a down parka and snow boots but this woman is OK w/no jacket and casual footwear….
