Day 2 in New York was colder than the first, but can we get a hallelujah for no snow! Don’t get me wrong. The snow was beautiful, but it got old real quick as soon as it started slapping me in the face and impairing my vision.
We spent the day walking all the way down Fifth and Madison to Midtown, and by the end of the day, my health app says I put on about 10 miles on my Stans. We left the house around 1:00 PM and didn’t get back in til about 11:00 PM, so it’s a really great thing that I wore a comfy outfit.
A full day out called for the obvious: my warm stadium cloth J.Crew coat. I got it as a gift from my aunt last semester, and I had been dying to wear it out and give it some purpose. The great thing about this coat is that it is so warm but lighter than expected. There’s nothing worse than having a heavy coat to tire you out.
Under my coat, I wore my white front-tie Madewell sweater that I’ve featured in a post before. Under my sweater, although you can’t see it, I’m wearing a Uniqlo Heattech camisole. These will save your life on the coldest of days, thanks to Uniqlo and thanks to Japanese technology.
Of course, my Madewell coated jeans had to make an appearance at least once on the trip, along with my Adidas Stan Smith sneakers paired with some fishnet socks. Fishnet/Fence-net socks and stockings under jeans are all the rage right now. I love how pairing them with jeans and sneakers takes such a sexualized and feminine piece of clothing and gives it an unexpected edge.
Stay tuned for my third and final What I Wore in NYC post!
Thanks for doing life with moi!
