it’s getting colder and the days are getting shorter as well. Yesterday daylight saving time officially ended and that usually means that days get shorter rapidly. Although they actually don’t get shorter as we still have 24 hours in a day, but oh well. You know what I mean.
So with falling leaves, increased rainfall and lots of wind it is pretty obvious that fall has arrived and it won’t be long until it’s winter. Time to check if our closets are up to the task known as “OMGWTFWHYISITSOCOLD?”
Unfortunately I already noticed that my own closet will fail the test miserably. While I stocked up on jeans I’m still lacking…well… almost everything else. Which means… SHOPPING ! (voice from somewhere behind me: “Maybe not right now, I still have to recover from booking that trip and…” Oh shut it, bank account ! I don’t want to be cold !
So, uh, what did I want to talk about… Ah yeah, warm clothes. And that includes coats. Lately I have been browsing online stores and the like to find a nice one that’s not too boring and can be used for hime style. That turned out to be quite difficult, the style is just not “in” here and I am a bit hesitant when it comes to ordering coats from Asia as you never truly know how warm they keep you (plus all that nasty stuff called “tax” and “customs”..)
But I did happen to find a few coats that are actually pretty nice (even though they don’t work for hime style). All of them can be purchased for 250 GBP or less (most of them much less).
