안넹! Winter in Korea

Back in February, my family visited Korea during the Lunar New Year holidays.

It was already the end of winter but it was still snowing lightly in Seoul.

Some people say that winter is the most dull/sad of all seasons in terms of fashion but I think it's just a matter of accessorizing and wearing a pop of colour instead of just black/gray/navy.

The temperature was below zero daily, the day we landed it was -19 Celcius, one night it was -25. I LOVE the cold! Here's what I wore to keep myself warm and toasty throughout the trip:

At Incheon Airport, in comfortable plane-wear
Sneakers for sight-seeing days
Collar necklaces instantly transform an otherwise blah outfit
Wooly snood and balaclava
Loving my sister's cape
Snoooowwwwww! The wind was really cold at the ski resort and we had to cover our faces as we walked
Cute papa
Removed our face-covers for a pic. So cold that my nose, lips and cheeks were turning raw
Checking out headgear in the shops
More sightseeing at Mount. Sorak; beautiful views

Showing us whats under her cape
Lotte World! It's been 10 years since my first visit!
One of the not-so-cold days
The first thing we did was get kitty-ears to wear
My most favouritest (is it even a word?) cape-jacket!

Underneath my cape...

I brought 3 jackets with me for the week (too little? too many?) but they all kept me very warm. I need fashion that functions, but if I had to choose comfort over looking good- I'd definitely pick looking good.

Life is too short to dress down; or eat crappy chocolate.
