What do you wear when it gets cold?
Of course, that depends on your definition of ‘cold‘. Which in turn depends on your geographical location, climate, the time of year etc. Suffice it to say that one person’s definition of ‘cold’ can be another’s ‘cool summer day’…
Anyway, when these photos were taken, it was sunny and around -6 °C. This is perfectly normal for Helsinki in January, although a bit colder than what we’ve got used to in the past couple of years. In other words, it looks like winter has finally arrived, and more importantly, plans to stay for a while.
This means that I can finally get some wear out of the really warm down coat I bought last year. This coat is practically pristine: I wore it only a couple of times last winter. And when I did, I was getting way too hot and sweaty in no time. It was an unusually warm winter…
Something tells me this winter is going to be different, though. Perhaps it’s the fact that it has been snowing non-stop for a few days.
Anyway, I don’t particularly like winter. Ever since I was a child I’ve preferred to stay indoors when it gets cold. It used to drive my mother crazy: she had to practically force me to go skating with her, or play in the snow with other children. I just wanted to stay in and a read a book.
Of course, that’s what I usually wanted to do in summer, too, especially on a hot day. Maybe I’m just not an outdoorsy type…
