Winter's Height

Even though I knew that it would be cold when I visited Japan, I didn't really know how cold it would be. It was my first time to experience weather that was this cold for a week, I only knew the number of the temperature and the fact that, as much as possible, I didn't want to resign myself to wearing down jackets (the winter jacket with the puffs) just to battle the cold. This is what I wore on my first real day in Japan and I think was able to manage, more or less, successfully? Read on to see more of the outfit!

Before we left, I wanted to go to H&M and get myself one of their peacoats which I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on, but it was just way too expensive at 4500 bucks! When I got home feeling defeated and honestly worried because I still didn't have a legitimate winter coat, my dad magically pulled out this beautiful trench coat he had stowed away from Zara! #MiraclesInDecember

Worn with light layers, the coat is bit big on me, but since I brought a lot of chunky knits and sweaters, it was *perfect.*

Underneath the coat I was wearing the thickest sweatshirt tee I own from Straightforward! Even when I got it way back I was already thinking how awesome it would look layered on a black undershirt during colder times. I was half-hoping it wouldn't be so cold so I can sport the look the entire day without needing a coat.

Underneath, I wore UNIQLO's Heat Tech thermal shirts which are awesome, by the way, and are honestly a winter must-have. If it wasn't so windy that day, I'm pretty sure I could have managed without my coat. I'm looking forward to trying out the Extra Heat version which was just recently released!

Travel bag for the entire trip was my trusty Izzoshop Charlie bag! So convenient and so durable. It fit my DSLR, scarf, gloves, hygiene kit, and still had room for a bottle of water!  When I just have my mirrorless camera with me, this bag can hold about twice the amount of stuff.

Unquestionably the best pair of shoes I have. So comfy and so stylish, you can be sure that anywhere I go in the world, this would be in my luggage. Haha!

  7. I just came from Japan myself and it is very cold there. I also do not like the heavy down jackets. So I just put on several layers, but my outer coat is only an Americana coat or regular leather jacket.
