It’s officially May, which means we’re on the downhill slide to winter. There’s much to like about the colder months: hot soups, rainy days, staying in, log fires, comfort food, but frosty mornings? Notsomuch.
I mean, am I the only one who is incapable of reading the weather forecast and then interpreting it correctly? For example, yesterday I saw that it was going to be 21 degrees in Sydney. I choose this to mean that a long-sleeved tee and culottes (and not particularly long ones, so, just shorts) would be appropriate.
What I failed to spot was that it wasn’t going to reach 21 degrees until midday. Turns out, that a long-sleeved tee and culottes when combined with bare legs and a kimono jacket don’t cut it when it’s a frosty 13 degrees in the morning. Who would have thought…
In case you also happen to be weather-app challenged, here are 15 winter coats for frosty mornings (and nights) with a handy cold weather rating so you’ll never get caught out again. (Well, no promises.)
