    We are both going to colder climbs for Christmas this year – me to NYC and then on to Upstate New York (where they already have over two feet of snow!!); and Nicky to Lapland (currently -4ºC!). So we are both busy getting prepared for the colder weather conditions. Cold climates call for a gear switch in the wardrobe department – just adding a cashmere scarf and beanie (although, of course, there will be cashmere!!) just isn’t going to cut the mustard where we’re going. Here are a few of our favourite essentials so far.

ps: Bailey already has this J.Crew coat (a version of the one above) and the Sorel boots (such a good price!). They’ve both been put through their paces recently on bonfire night and during the recent cold snap. The coat is so cosy (even nicer in reality) and Bailey reports toasty warm toes! NHC
