It is so cold outside! Oh my word. Everyone warned me about New York winters. I wrote them off saying that I had survived the cold in DC just fine. Nope. Way colder here. Not to mention the fact that it’s just the beginning of November. I’m seriously already dreading February. Because I can only imagine how brutal that is going to be!!!
There’s a heater in my apartment, but it’s controlled by the building… not me. And my apartment is seriously colder than the Levo offices. (Levo Leaguers love cold buildings apparently… except for me, that is.) It’s hard to believe that a few short months ago I was sweltering in Florida and even pretty warm in NYC.
Currently, I’m wearing leggings underneath pajama bottoms with a Georgetown long sleeved shirt and a Patagonia pullover. Eep! I think I might subsist on grilled cheeses and tomato soup for the next few months.
While I’m currently in the process of building up a better winter wardrobe, the first thing I really need to work on is MITTENS + GLOVES!
Top to Bottom:
I have a pair of the hobo style mittens from J. Crew. I actually had one pair at the beginning of college (Blackberry days) and loved them. When those had too many holes to be useful, I got the same pair again two years later. Unfortunately, they’re not the best when you have to use an iPhone. (Although, here’s a tutorial on how to make your own tech gloves.)
So while I love mittens, I have to make sure I can use my iPhone. I never updated to the new operating system because I practically eat, sleep, and breathe the Google Maps feature. It’s a lifesaver when it comes to navigating weird/new parts of the city. And I need my fingers and thumbs to be able to work with my mittens.
The Echo Touch gloves are probably going to be the way I end up going. They’re warm, cute, colorful, and iPhonable. But which to choose?
I think the bow ones are the best. I would love a bright, fun color… but let’s face it. I’m predictable and boring. I’ll probably go with the grey.
Which pair is your favorite?
