Nico - The Fairest Of the Seasons
It's getting mighty cold now that winter has arrived in Sydney. While everyone in the North is enjoying the first days of summer, we're settling in for the long and boring winter.
Boring because our winter has none of the festive benefits of a northern winter;
No outdoor ice skating
No public holidays unless you count the Queen’s Birthday Public holiday this coming Monday and after that there's nothing till October!
Very boring and cold and DRY! And the daylight hours are of course shorter making it hard to take decent outfit photos for you all.
Sydney winters can trick you. On a good day you can have a nice 20C/68F degrees (according to this article it is a veritable heatwave in England) which for us is probably cool enough for a coat and dress here during the day. But if you are silly enough to stay out after the sun sets without back up provisions, you could find yourself freezing your butt off in 10C/50F degrees. Yes 10! Very cold for us people who are accustomed to 40C/104F degree summers - 45.8C was the max this year! (114.44F)
I find the weather fascinating and it may seem like a conversational faux pas to talk about the weather but I love comparing notes with people from other countries about what their summer or winter is like. Hence why the article about England's 23 degree heat wave left me tickled pink!
So I guess most people would look at summer time pictures to warm themselves, but instead I'll share with you some very snug and stylish people to remind me to take my scarf and gloves when I leave the house!
