I love travel, especially to a country with a different climate than home.
Coming from hot, humid (and lately, very wet) Malaysia, I very, very rarely have the opportunity to dress up in cold wet weather gear, so when I landed in Shanghai I was pretty chuffed that it was cold enough for me to bust out skinnies, boots and a beret!
I could've probably done better, but seeing that I was only there for a short visit, whether I had enough luggage allowance to haul it back was another thing altogether.
Shanghainese style, for what it's worth, I observed to be relatively...blah. Perhaps because of the time of year--approaching winter, the shops are full of jackets, long-sleeved tops and tights. Even then, the tights selection was pretty blah--no bright colours, just heaps of darks! Boooo-riiing.
Anyway, this was me, hardly standing out amongst a crowd. Or maybe I lie--I certainly didn't spot too many people in headgear, even when temperatures were well below 10 degrees!
