Winter Layers

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Battling with the Polar Vortex in NYC, I am bundled in layers and in my trusty faux fur vest. Even in this freezing cold, I got sick of wearing jeans and thought today is going to be a dress day! I can truly say that the best weapon against the cold is layering and Uniqlo's heattech. This stuff really works, and the best part is you don't need to look like a marshmellow when you walk out of the house. I remember jokingly saying to my friend (at the start of winter) that I wanted to try going without heattech this winter, but when the temperature dropped, it didn't take me a second to put on my heattech. You really have to work with the weather and not against it :P

NYC winter this year has been brutal, thanks to the Polar Vortex. We had weeks of -16C, 3F weather, snow storms, icy cold and snow slushy streets (we are finally getting a break now). This made commuting around kinda difficult, especially since we walk so much in this city, even when the weather is freezing. I always try to make sure that I wear lower heeled boots as the streets are slippery, and these riding boots are a favorite in the closet. Practical, stylish and comfortable, these are the key qualities for a functioning winter wardrobe.

I hope you also found some winter favorites that are not only practical, but also chic to wear to cheer up any cold winter's day. Stay warm my friends and Spring is coming!! :)
