One of the greatest things about coming from New Zealand is our temperate climate. In summer it gets up to about 30 degrees Celsius (85 Fahrenheit), and in winter it goes down to about 5 degrees Celsius (40 Fahrenheit). It means that we don’t experience extremes of hot and cold, but it also means that I’m here in New York entirely unprepared for what’s to come. Two days ago, I began building my Northern Hemisphere winter wardrobe, starting with this wool melton peacoat by +J for Uniqlo. It’s the heaviest thing I’ve ever owned and I’m hoping it’ll do the trick once temperatures drop below zero/32. The sweater is one of the Uniqlo cashmere bad boys (on sale for $59.00 right now), and what you can’t see is a Uniqlo Heattech thermal tee shirt (also on sale for $9.90 right now). Next up, trousers, and then boots. I’ll be warm yet.
I LIKE YOU!
