She has an appreciation for the finer things in life.
And Mariah Carey didn’t let the cold stop her from enjoying them while out in Aspen, Colorado with her boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, 39, on Friday.
The music icon, 52, displayed her legs in a black mini skirt while shopping for jewelry over glasses of champagne.

She beamed with happiness as she stepped out into the winter evening, hand in hand with her long-time love.
The singing sensation worked a puffy black jacket, pleated mini skirt, tights, and impressive boots tied up with gold laces.
Her hair billowed out in expertly styled waves alongside her perfectly polished complexion.
Ever the gentleman, Bryan guided his lady love outside with a huge smile on his face. The dancer wore a Prada bucket hat, fur-trim cardigan, and tattered jeans.

Carey and Tanaka initially met in the mid-2000s and he accompanied her as a backup dancer during her Adventures of Mimi tour, which occurred in 2006.
The songstress has long been dubbed the Queen Of Christmas by fans for her frenzy of holiday-themed projects but in a new interview with W Magazine, the chart-topping singer explained that it was her ‘messed-up’ childhood which promoted her love of the holidays.

‘I know a lot of the time people are like, ‘Oh, yay! Look at her! She’s, like, so festive and such a Christmas girl,’ or whatever. But, really, Christmas makes me happy,’ the Hero singer explained to the magazine.
‘When you grow up with a messed-up life and then you’re able to have this transformation where you can make your life what you want it to be? That is joy for me. That’s why I want my kids to have everything they can have. I want them to be able to understand that they can be anything they want to be.’
Carey often tries to get her 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, who she shares with ex-husband Nick Cannon, involved in her many holiday-themed projects, which includes appearing together at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, as well as year’s past.
The star made her sparkling return to the 96th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade last month after a seven-year absence.
