New York City was cold. Freezing in fact. The coldest weather I have ever been in, in my life. Lil ole Australia is generally more of a hotter climate, with the winter temperatures where I live, occasionally reaching maybe 10 degrees C (50F) at the lowest. In New York City I was ever so luckily subjected to -20 degrees C (-4F) which is bloody ridiculous. I wore quite a few layers. Including fleece lined tights, underneath my jeans. Then socks and shoes. I was only kind of prepared.
Here is my basic daily outfit for while I was in New York City.
Puffer Jacket with Faux Fur Hood | Cropped Fisherman Sweater | Twig Super High Waisted Jeans | Scoop Neck Tee | Dr Martens |

The only issue with dressing so warm was immediately sweating whenever you walked inside of a building and were faced with all of their heating. So wearing a short sleeved shirt under the sweater helped with that. Especially as my jacket was so so warm as it is lined with down. My Dr Marten boots were perfect as well for walking through puddles and snow being waterproof leather. My feet were a lot warmer than Josh's.
