My recent solo trip to Tokyo coincided with the heaviest snow storms in the last 50 years. Thankfully my Espirit wool trench coat kept me warm (and my head too in my new hat), and these Ralph Lauren boots were comfortable and reliable despite the snow-covered streets and sidewalks.
Incidentally, the last time I emptied out a major city with a natural disaster (read: NYC & Hurricane Sandy), I was wearing an older pair of Ralph Lauren boots, and a water-resistant DKNY trench coat instead. Same purse this time, same gloves, but I alternated between the chunky infinity scarf with a $5 ‘Heat Tech’ scarf I picked up at Uniqlo.
I miss it all already.
