I spent a week in Ulaanbaatar and in the surrounding countryside of Töv, the city's province. It was pure -28 degree Celsius magic. Here are some observations from my short time in wintertime Mongolia..
I was suddenly conscious of how we looked. A man sitting with a woman half his age, an obvious foreigner, in the middle of half-drunken English conversation, in a restaurant located in the middle of a bar district overflowing with salarymen wandering in packs outside.
When millennial pink finally became a thing in mid-2016, I'd been waiting half my life for the return of my childhood favourite color. As someone 5'2ish, I've often felt the need to downplay my 'girlyness' because I need to look older and professional for my work. And so I was elated when pink re-emerged as a trend that rendered youthful nostalgia into sophisticated unisex adult wearability.
