Instagram is visual, inspiring, fast and fun! The simplicity and ease of Instagram allows me to publish new images every day.  And being a mobile app, it is easy to post on-the-go.  I am excited to have a means to post quickly and more frequently to supplement the AlpineStyle56 blog with additional relevant content.

Winter Ritual: Snow Tires

vintage photo car chains tires snowNo need for chains with studded Hakkapeliittas – snow tires are on!  My Subaru now drives like a little tank.  Overkill perhaps, but it is habit and peace of mind for the thousands of miles logged up to and around Vermont all winter long.

My dad has always told me, “Good tires are cheap insurance.”  I have taken that to heart and think I get as excited about a fresh pair of Nokian Tyres as a new pair of skis!  Safe driving to everyone this winter. . .

Super Star: Kaylin Richardson

My favorite example of outerwear customization:  Kaylin Richardson’s star pants!  Kaylin confirmed the star came to be out of necessity, a patch to cover a hole in the knee.  It is a brilliant fix – doesn’t look like a repair, rather a stylish little detail that emphasizes her stoked style.
