Chilly times

I don't know how it is in the areas where you guys live, but Brussels is pretty damn cold these days. Like 15 degrees Celsius(in the 50s Fahrenheit) in the middle of the day. It's kind of like part of the cultural shock of moving here because in Romania the weather is really hot in the summer and really cold in the winter. We've been getting chills like the current one in Belgium ever since I came here in August, and whenever I look at iGoogle, the temperature is at least 10 degrees higher back home...

So I really admire the Belgian way of sticking it to the icy cold and wild rain that sneaks under your umbrella, by forcing through them. I've been down with a cold so that dampened and darkened my perception, but on Sunday, for instance, there was a city-wide "ban" on cars and rather than staying in or crowding the public transportation, people, young and old, took to their bikes, skateboards, rollerblades and  scooters and invaded the city centre. Seriously, it was bikes, bikes, bikes everywhere.

In the end, I have to admit there might also be something good to the events that take place around this time of the year. After all the Fall Equinox is in a few days and the only thing we can do is get excited about a whole new kind of wardrobe. We get new colours and fabrics and fancy layers and big comfy scarves and sweaters, like these...                                                     

Carven sweater

Carven sweater (see more wool sweaters) - a cute mustard-violet-grey combination by Carven would be nice.

Moschino Cheap Chic sweater

Moschino Cheap Chic sweater (see more long sleeve sweaters) - Moschino love, hehe.

Oasis sweater

Oasis sweater (see more green tops) - aaand the most popular colour trend on the runways right now, minty green. 

How is it in your area? Are you starting to layer your clothing or are you still enjoying late summer warmth? Are you so lucky that it's Spring that's coming, not Fall?
