This is the first winter that I’ve really felt prepared for the cold weather, and it’s great! In past years, I’ve shivered and suffered in thin, wool coats (and, once upon a time, stockings and heels every day—but I got over that), but this year I planned ahead and bought a knee-length, super-warm down coat from Soïa & Kyo. Ahhhhhh. It’s like a sleeping bag with a belt, only more flattering. I have to ride a ferry across the Hudson and stand on an outdoor train platform every morning, so this is serious business.
Also, did you know that wearing a hat that covers your ears keeps you much warmer than not wearing a hat at all? I know, I know, that seems crazy, but apparently our mothers were right about that. Huh.
