Quick Snaps: What do I wear when it's cold out?

What I'm wearing:
*Uniqlo +J Down Jacket in Green
*Lululemon Chai Time II Pullover in Black/Grey
*Lululemon Will Pant in Black Slub Denim
*Off 5th Black Leather Boots
*Martin + Osa Cashmere Wrap in Grey

Apologies for being a bit MIA lately, it's been brutally cold in NYC and I've been sick since New Year's Eve. That combination has prevented me from venturing out into the tundra to snap some outfit photos. But, I do adore my winter coat, and am delighted to have discovered that it actually will keep me warm. It's not just functional, it's sort of cute, too! I'm the type of person that will sometimes sacrifice comfort for style. But living in the city means there is a lot of walking around involved, and for that one needs a warm coat. 

Uniqlo had a large selection of reasonably priced puffer coats. I've refused to wear a puffer before because I hate the way I look in them, but this green hooded number is probably my favorite out of all of the ones I've seen. I don't feel like the Michelin man while wearing this, and the green makes it stand out a bit from the sea of black puffer jackets in NYC. And it's super lightweight, in fact, so lightweight that I was shocked at how warm it kept me during some very cold days. Especially when bundled up in a thick cashmere scarf and with the hood up, I felt quite cozy. I have a feeling I'll be reaching for this jacket quite often.

When it's this cold out, I can't really handle wearing real clothes. Which is why I wore the yoga pants that I wore in the previous post, but with a cozy sweater that was long enough to cover the important bits. Once again, so lucky that I am able to wear such casual items to work.

This is yet another cold weather outfit from this week. My go to uniform is: sweater tunic & leggings/skinnies tucked into boots. Not the most interesting combinations, but they are pretty cozy and comfortable. This turtleneck marled sweater is from Aqua (Bloomingdale's) and I'm wearing J.Brand skinnies tucked into the Off 5th boots that I really can't stop wearing. No really, I want to wear them every single day. They are competing hard to be my favorite pair of boots of all time. 

I hope everyone is staying warm! I'm hoping to recover soon and not be such a miserable grouch!


  1. Oh I love Uniqlo! I really wish they'd bring one out to San Francisco. I totally lived in that store when I studied in Japan.
