Snow Style 整個二月份波士頓幾乎被接連不斷的暴風雪掩埋了，累積的雪量已達到歷史新高。零下十幾或二十度C的天氣已經嚇不倒我，出門的基本配備就是帽子、手套、圍巾、和雨鞋不離身，舉步維艱的踏過冰冷溼滑的人行道…歡迎來到冬季的波士頓，大雪全天候上映中。
As the usual temperature here in Boston is around13˚F to -4˚F this winter, my go-to pieces of clothing now contain a wool hat, a pair of leather gloves, rain boots and a scarf. These pieces and layered outfits have kept me warm and dry for below freezing temperatures. When going out during a snowstorm, I need to make my way along a snow covered street and it’s not romantic at all as it seems.
Welcome to Boston, it snows 24-hour in winter this year. Almost.
Snow Style. 之前秋天時同學們已經描述過波士頓嚴寒的冬天景象，諄諄告誡我長版羽絨外套防風防水又保暖，是過冬的必備單品；但礙於機能型的長版羽絨外套總是缺乏設計感，讓我掙扎許久，最後選擇的是內搭Uniqlo的羽絨背心，利用洋蔥式穿法層層疊上發熱衣、法蘭絨襯衫、毛衣、羽絨背心，外面套上大衣外套就可以出門了。
I have been told how cold the winter would be here in Boston by my classmates since last semester. They all said that the down coat was a must-buy since it’s not only water-proof and wind-resistant, but also keeps you warm. I was struggling to purchase one because it was not aesthetically pleasing to me. After hesitating for a long time, my final decision is this Uniqlo down vest. Served as a versatile layer, this vest certainly provides extra warmth.
This is the runaway hat that was featured on my last Lytro Illum post. It’s actually a very warm wool hat.
Other winter go-to pieces are gloves and a scarf. You definitely don’t want to go out without them!
I had my behavioral economics mid-term last week so that I didn’t have a proper Chinese New Year celebration. Anyway, 2015 is the year of sheep according to Chinese zodiac, and happy belated lunar New Year!
