How do you gear up for cooler weather?

It's now the end of the second technically Autumn month.. and it's 31 degrees today in Perth.

I don't know if I mentioned it in my previous post, but when the mornings start to get that first crisp breeze - we Perthians instantly divide ourselves into 2 - some of us will be like " OH thank GOD, finally some rainy days, I can stay in my warm snuggly pj's and slippers all day.. now where's my slow cooker ?" .. and then there's the rest of us, myself included, who firmly believe that the best way to ward off the coming chilly weather is to pretend that it doesn't exist. Nope, don't know what you're talking about, I feel fine in my singlet and short shorts. Just fine.

 I guess when I say this I'm largely referring to uni students, you see it all the time, short shorts with a giant hoodie that is big enough to smuggle a few textbooks out of the library without raising suspicion. If I get to uni anytime in the next few days I'll take some sneaky shots so I can show you exactly what I mean =9

So anyway, the question I'm putting out there, is what do you do to gear up for cold weather? 

I won't start eating ham and cheese jaffles, or drinking Chai lattes until we've had at least 1 decent "wintery" storm. 


  1. AS a fellow Pertharian I am in TOTAL denial about the weather getting cooler. Cold at night pfft, I don't need winter pjs yet etc :D

  2. I am the exact same! I finally had to pull out the extra blanket last night.. :( At least we still have these beautiful blue skies - I love sitting out in the sun and feeling yourself thaw in winter, don't you ??

    thanks for the comment sweet!

  3. You both need to come to London!! I dream of those mild Perth winters!! lol

    My entire spring as been 12 degree days :(

    Nice to see you back Lily and congrats :)
