Hello hello! What about all that weird weather we are having? 75 degrees in February, who would have thought? I love to walk places whenever possible, I walk to work, I walk to the gym, I walk to the bar, you get it. Anyways in winter I don’t really like to walk every where because its cold out but recently we are having a heatwave.
This weather makes picking out jackets really hard. When I walk to work in the morning its really chilly, so I need a coat but once I leave work I don’t. When I go out for drinks I don’t need a coat when I leave but on the way home I really want one. I’ve been having a little struggle with how heavy of a coat to wear.
Leaving for work in the morning.
I have been wearing my nice blue trench coat, its light and easy to wear when I walk to work. But when I walk home I usually fold the coat and put it in a nice bag. I hate to do this because I feel like I am balling up this really nice coat. So I have started wearing my cargo jacket to work, it is about the same amount of warmth but I don’t feel so bad folding it up and putting it in a bag. Both work really well, they are just heavy enough to keep me warm when walking but light enough that if I wore it on the walk home it would not be overly hot.
Out to dinner.
The opposite issue happens at night when I walk to dinner, the walk to the restaurant it is warm enough not to need a coat but once you leave the restaurant it is necessary. I usually wear a leather jacket out at night. It does make the walk to dinner a little bit warm but it is light enough that it is not a huge issue. What is really great about wearing the leather jacket is on the walk home it blocks the wind. This allows me to be wear a light jacket and not be too cold on the walk home.
Let me know your thoughts
