I was doing my grocery shopping in S&R when  I heard  “Walking in the Winter Wonderland” being sung by Jason Mraz.  It immediately put a smile on my face. 🙂  It was the first of September and already the Pinoys are in the mood for Christmas!  Then, I realized it’s time to plan another trip before the year ends.   I just love this season! 

If you’re travelling to cooler places for the holidays, you better plan your wardrobe this early.  Here are my top picks for the fashionable globetrotter!



Made of synthetic (plastic looking) textile, these jackets will keep you warm and dry. (PHP9000)



Zara’s latest offerings include a myriad of outerwear – colored, floral, animal prints, fur, black and white ….and I like them all!


Totally loving these! L-R : 1. Yellow short anorak with fur collar (PHP5900), 2. Fur vest with knit lining (PHP3995), 3. Hooded puffer jacket with buckle (PHP5990) and 4. Zip pocket coat (PHP8590) Photos from the ZARA online store.



This beige parka with fur is perfect for moderately cool days while the black puffer jacket (PHP14,000) on the right is a gorgeous choice for winter wear. Both have detachable hoods.



Track suits (PHP10,000 to 12,000) are best for long flights. It will keep you comfortable and warm enough for the plane temp. Juicy Couture has a wide array of colors and design to choose from.



I’m a big fan of Calvin Klein. The brand’s designs are always modern, clean and fashion-forward. Both are lined and have detachable hoods.


I used the black CK jacket during my trip to Los Angeles last Christmas. I threw in a Burberry scarf to complete the look. It kept me warm on a very cold night out at Downtown Disney!


Keep the elements at bay in UNIQLO’s outerwear. This red jacket kept me perfectly warm as I watched the Disney parade with my son last Christmas in Anaheim, California.


Hong Kong is a favorite destination of the family. The weather is not that cold so I normally pack a light sweater and a jacket (just in case).

Left : Brown vest from Zara. I’ve only worn mine with dark jeans. I’ll try pairing it with a dress like the one shown on the mannequin next time. Right : Ombre faux fur vest from Cotton On. This number is certainly going inside my suitcase this December!


FOLDED AND HUNG – Just bought this yesterday. If you scroll up it looks like a twin of Zara’s floral outerwear.  The big difference is, this one costs a third of the price! Great buy!  Watch out for more fab finds from F&H i my future post!


I hope you enjoyed this feature.  Now plan that trip and let your wanderlust take over!
