I would make a recommendation to swap the balaclava for a neck gaiter. It can be used as a face covering, now that face coverings or masks are required during the pandemic. I would also recommend an optional vest for skiing — fleece, wool, or down. It allows for a bit of fine tuning, providing warmth without bulk. Thanks!

Hey Louisa – great advice! thanks for the recommendations, you’re right a neck gaiter sounds more functional!

I remember the first time I boated in Central Park. My then boyfriend proposed to me. It was an experience I will never forget. I love that North Face and how it looks on you!

You look so warm and cozy in that coat. I just love the background of these photos too. Such gorgeous scenery. I tend to not go outside as much when it gets cold, but I need to start.

I love The North Face Products. Even thought the price tag may seem a little high, they hold up quite well. I have a few TNF jackets that are well over 5 years old!
I really need to get into a local store and check out the Campshire fleece. It looks amazing!

I’ve always loved North Face apparel. I used to live in MN and it was just what I needed to stay warm in the extreme cold weather that MN is known for. This fleece is stylish and cute.

North Face is one of our favorite brands when it comes to outerwear. I am really liking the one you have. The color is great too. The pull over style is nice to have for fall.

I like that specific jacket you’re wearing but can’t seem to find it in their collection. I do love it though. Seemed like a beautiful day at Central Park! Lovely photos.

Hi Karlyn – Thanks – it’s so cozy, you’ll love it. Here’s the correct link to the pullover!

It also comes in a vest version here and a jacket with 2 pockets version here.

A Review of Foot Petals Shoe Inserts (2021)

I put Foot Petals cushioned shoe inserts to the test – walking 4 miles around the Upper East Side to see if they live up to their name!

Oh those are cute! I love a good shoe, it makes such a difference!

[…] Other Cole Haan options that are good for travel: oxford wing tip sneakers, bow ballet flat and pointed toe flat. A similar shoe to the Cole Haan sneakers is a newly launched shoe line by Foot Petals (the company which makes cushy gel inserts for shoes). I tried Foot Petals’ shoe line out and like them a lot – full review here. […]
