The last few winters in Western Europe have been pretty mild (which seems to be the new standard..), so I wouldn't worry about the temperature that much. I think it has more to do with how you react to the cold. I wear the same shoes etc whether it's 5ºC or -5ºC, I just layer more when it comes to outerwear.

I think the humidity etc is also a big factor... I've travelled in the winter but I've never felt so cold as in Prague last December. When it reached -5º I felt my nose was going to freeze off! I'm not very well accustomed, I know, I know...

The cold I find difficult to take is right by the water, like the ocean. The same temperature is bone-chilling in a way it's not at home.

Hmm, maybe you'll get used to the tights Highly recommended in my book. There are different types ... maybe if you try a more sock-like type.

Even when you live in a climate with a winter, you have to get used to the weather when it changes. Being plunged into the midst of a winter in progress is worse than actually living there.

Funny I live pretty much by the sea and this is the sort of cold I find easier to endure... drier weathers, such as in inner Portugal/Spain or, like I said, Czech Republic and Paris. Then again, this is the cold I'm accustomed to, and it's not very cold either! I remember it snowing in 2006 and it being all over the news because it hadn't snowed where I live since the 1950s.

Sock things may be easier. When I once wore full tights under my trousers I didn't rest until I'd taken them off, the two fabrics rubbed together in a very uncomfortable way!

A white balenciaga jacket I have loved since 2007 (when I saw it on Clemence Poesy) was recently for sale for 8 MONTHS and of course I was not doing my job and stalking Vestiairecollective so someone else bought it recently. I am so bummed i missed it. And it was my size and everything!
