Layering Puffer Jacket and Houndstooth Plaid Coat
Let me just say this: puffer jackets, from here onwards till forever, will be my best friends in winter.

Well OK since this lime green puffer jacket — that I've had for years and years — is the only puffer jacket I own, I guess it is officially my best friend every winter. (That is, until I get a new, cuter one in a more classic colour because lime green really is a hard shade to match, guys.)

    The jacket may keep me warm but it isn't the most flattering thing ever, something I mentioned when I wore it in Tokyo so I decided to make my outfit more interesting by layering a thinner houndstooth plaid coat underneath, that in turn was layered on top of two Heattech tops.

      I definitely took a risk by ditching guaranteed-to-be-warm(er) jeans for these black culottes but compensated with two Heattech leggings underneath them — and two pairs of socks too, by the way.

      Yo girl just needs all the protection she can get from the cold, so double everything for me, baybeh! Like, you'd think a hijabi has enough protection from the cold around the head and neck area, wouldn't you? Yeah, nope; a cosy beanie and scarf are complete musts for me.

      PS: Another secret winter weapon for me: heat pads, which I'll talk about in a future post!

          Hot pink Timberland boots on snow
          Aside from puffer jackets, I must say Timberland boots are another "winter best friend" of mine; I used to have a pair in black Timberland boots that served me well for EIGHT great years before the outsoles cracked right before my first trip to Japan back in 2014, but then I found these sweet pink ones on sale in Gotemba Outlet to replace them. ❤

            Bad news: I'm currently so taken with Timberland boots (again) that I'm considering getting their classic camel brown version now, halppp.
