Layered to perfection

Post December1

Colder temperature calls for more things to put on- although less really is more.


On a typical five-level Likert scale, I’m the one that sits on the “strongly agree” dot when the question is, “You consider the time spent putting on clothes one of the most unproductive daily activities.”

Having spent longer than necessary number of years in LA doesn’t help either, where layering is reserved for true fashionistas.

But as with many things that have changed over the years… Seoul has done it again, with the arrival of the dreaded winter. Yeah, you.


After about three winters of feeling like a lost cat, I’m finally feeling a bit more confident about going out without a padding jacket, one with which I reluctantly maintained a love and hate relationship for the longest time.

So it turns out it’s all in layering, and the material: wool and cashmere are going to be my best friends this season, let me tell you that much.

Just letting you know, these shots were taken before we got our first snow here, and it was feeling more like autumn then, hence the pants. Probably going to have to rely on baggy sweats and ugliest leggings for the next four months, and you probably won’t see me for a while here unless you are interested in seeing me in hibernation mode which isn’t the prettiest version of me.
