Invisible LayersPosted: January 10, 2013
One of the mistakes I made while packing for my big move home was that I didn’t keep more of my thick sweaters. Like I said, I didn’t remember it being this cold in Hanoi, so I kept most of my light cardigans and donated about half of my sweaters. True, most of them were pretty old, but I could really use my turtlenecks.
So now I have to resort to wearing my lighter sweaters with thermal shirts. My outfit may look light (except for the scarf), but don’t be fooled. I was wearing a thermal shirt underneath my sweater and skinny jeans under my maxi skirt – yes, jeans. My legs get so cold that tights/leggings are not enough. I guess I could just wear the jeans instead of the skirt, but I have only worn this skirt once since I bought it, and I want it to see some light of day when it’s still cold enough for a black, lined maxi skirt. I can’t seem to style it any other way than with a fitted shirt and a scarf though.
A “behind the scene” photo – what I wore between shots (it was drizzling, hence the raincoat.) This is actually nicer than most other days, when I usually wear my dad’s old parka and look like a hobo.
