Up in the Sky + Where We Stayed in Lake Tahoe


This is my last blog post from Lake Tahoe... on this day we took the Squaw Valley tram up to High Camp and had lunch at a restaurant overlooking the entire valley of mountains - it was breathtaking! (And also FREEZING.) I loved the outfit I wore that day - a bright pink sweater, blue beanie and a white puffy jacket made the perfect combination of color and warmth. I borrowed my mom's Sorel boots too... if you are looking for good snow boots, these are amazing. They're supposed to keep your feet warm even in -25 degree conditions... mine were toasty the entire time!

I got a lot of questions regarding the place we stayed in Lake Tahoe... we stayed at the Resort at Squaw Creek, and after five days there I would HIGHLY recommend it. We stayed in one of the "fireplace suites" and it was so nice because there's a fireplace built-in (with a simple on-off switch), and tons of windows with gorgeous views of the valley. (Here's a tip... when picking your room, you can choose a forest view or valley view, and the valley view is definitely the better of the two.) The resort is about a five minute drive from Tahoe City where the actual lake is located. Other than leaving to see the lake and go snow tubing, we didn't really stray too far from the resort. They had everything we needed there - ski slopes, great restaurants, a huge lobby with a fireplace and tables for checkers, even a small Starbucks. My mom and I went snowmobiling one day, and the hotel provided us all the information we needed to book. They also offer dogsledding that leaves right from the resort! 

Anyways, we had a blast in Lake Tahoe, one of the prettiest places I've been and I would highly recommend it to anyone! I've heard it's just as beautiful in the summer too! Happy Monday!

  26. I love how you add a pop of color with your sunglasses and your top, I usually tend to go very neutral during winter time. I guess you'll be my inspiration now on. Great outfit and great location!

  35. I've been going to Lake Tahoe every summer and winter since I was young, and it is one of my favorite places in the world. Everyone should experience it in both seasons! If you aren't thinking about it already I would plan a trip for the summer too! If you ever need recommendations on what to do feel free to shoot me a message! :)
