I’m from California, so whenever I’m in cold weather I don’t really know what to do with myself. I mean, I have my winter coat and I’m into layering, but I’m so resistant to the heavy duty winter apparel. You know, a massive down coat, the warmest of gloves, anything thermal…it’s all a little much for me. Not to mention the fact that most winter apparel is either hideous or overpriced or overpriced and hideous at the same time.
In short, dressing for the winter sucks but that’s what I get for moving somewhere that has real seasons.
