Oh Winter Where Art Thou?

Is it just me or does it feel like Spring already? I have not had enough cold yet and for about a week now I am not wearing any coat at all. 

Anyway,  hubby and I went to Aspen, CO for our mini-honeymoon last November and it was amazing! It was mini because we were only able to manage 6 days from our busy schedules.
What I am wearing: Top by Zara; Jeans by 7 for All Mankind; Sunnies by Cole Haan

Hubby and I stayed at the exclusive Viceroy Resort in SnowMass. The staff at Viceroy were amazing! From Stewart who welcomed us at the resort to the valet attendants who showed us the best spots to eat and see, our concierge who booked our couple's massages to Ryan, the manager, at Eight K restaurant and his staff. We will stay there again in a heartbeat!

these were waiting in our room...
The resort was nothing short of fabulous. We stayed in a one bedroom suite with 2 full baths and we loved everything about it.

The decor was modern yet cozy.

fully loaded kitchen with Viking appliances, espresso machine, ...
... and the view from our room was spectacular!

the view from our room was like a scene from a Thomas Kincade art

We were watching American Idol last night (yes hubby watched it with me) - and they did the auditions in Aspen. If you watched the show last night, you probably noticed how beautiful the view was where the lake at the foot of the 2 snow-capped mountains was shown. That was Maroon Bells - the most photographed scene in Colorado.

This picture was taken by Ultimate Taxi in late September last year. This scene was Ryan Seacrest's background last night.

GG and I went in November last year and this was how it looked:

Amazing isn't it? We were in awe of mother nature's beauty. Imagine it in fall when the leaves turn and the mountains reflected in the lake...

on our way up to Maroon Bells... freezing my toosh!   (What I was wearing: sweater from Anthropologie; jeans by 7 for all Mankind; boots by Via Spiga and Sunnies by Cole Haan)

Okay, so this post has gotten longer than I intended it to be. But I hope you get the picture =))
I will post more on Aspen in the coming week.

In the mean time, enjoy winter, or what's left of it.

PS. Don't forget to join my Shabby Apple dress giveaway. It will end this weekend!
