As students from both coasts of the United States as well as many countries abroad, many of us mistakenly assumed that California would bless us with consistent sunshine and sea breeze. Obviously we were wrong as we now wear layers upon layers and often carry a thick sweater with us at all times, only to have our precautionary measures go to waste the minute the clouds disperse to welcome the sunshine. Though the Californian weather is spectacularly inconsistent, we were pleasantly surprised when the weather became increasingly colder, especially in the mornings, the minute October sashayed away (literally the day after Halloween, everyone whooped out their Patagonia jackets, fuzzy socks and the North Face sweaters). At last, after the past two months of pumpkin-spiced foods, Halloween-related festivities, brown leaves and warm beverages, it finally feels like fall and the chilly Bay Area weather that warrants wooly scarves and cuddling with your bae (or maybe just your Netflix account) is here to stay. We at the Daily Clog, were curious about how students are adapting (or not adapting) to this change, so we decided to venture out on campus and take pictures of students’ outfits.
Disclaimer: these pictures were taken Wednesday about noon. The temperature was 68 degrees.
