What does one wear on a super rainy day, running from show to meeting to venue and so on? Nope, not an umbrella. That would have only helped the wind blow me straight into river Thames instead of Somerset House.
(I seriously wonder how this didn’t happen to anyone yet…)
My solution? Turn grandpa style into grandma style and wrap a blanket sized scarf around my head. It is warm, it is comfy (it looks kinda ridiculous though) and it doesn’t sweep me of my feet like an umbrella would have done in this crazy windy/stormy weather.
If it wasn’t for the simple fact that I never bring one, a hat might have been a good option – like Charlotte did here – but yeah, so I never bring one.
Now back to what I wore. I went for the good old double coat trick, because the big question is…how many layers is too many? Are there ever too many?
