Its Gotten Chillier - Have You Got Your Coat out Yet?

Ask a Question

It’s still August so even though I feel the chills, I refuse to wear a coat out. I’d wear a cardigan or a light jacket, but definitely not a coat. However, I’ve noticed some people are wearing their faux fur lined puffer jackets already. Really? Is it winter already?

I hate cold weather too, but I’m trying to just bear it for now as there’s no way I want the coats and the boots out yet, as I feel I’ve barely had a summer. The poor kids have been waiting for summer holidays at the beach - but definitely not beach weather atm

Oh no, not the heating lol! You’re not the only one, as I’ve a friend who put hers on the moment it started raining - she said she knew those hot summer days were long gone once the clouds moved in

It's still warm so no. Wearing a hot coat in this weather would be really weird but weirdness has been normalized.

Very true. Especially in London, as everyone here seems to be eccentric these days, and it’s readily accepted - hardly anyone looks

Lol lucky you! Yes definitely get used to the shorts and tshirt, and flip flops, to soak in as much sun as possible. Enjoy your holiday 😊

Oh no, sorry to hear that. I know it’s been quite chilly up north, so the highlands are definitely feeling the brunt of the storms. Hope you’re keeping warm 👍

No I’m not wearing a coat but I am wearing a camisole as an extra layer to keep a little warmer. I don’t really like coats they are too restricted, I much prefer wearing a down gillet with scarf and gloves, much more comfortable for driving.

No but i’m not far off wearing it... we‘ve had 11 degrees in Scotland recently which has lead to the need to put my heating back on 😫 I only turned it off at the start of July because we barely had a summer here.. no cost saving for me on the gas bill this year 🙄
