SOME days we see sun, but that doesn’t stop brisk mornings and having to rug up and fight the cold.
Last week, The Courier called on readers to send in a picture of Ballarat’s most wintry outfit.
The winning submission was of Naomi Francis in her lady bug onesie – embracing winter fashion to its fullest.
“I live in my onesie,” she said.
“It usually wouldn’t be my type of thing, but I just love it.”
Although, she said, she made sure she did not wear her onesie in public.
“I feel the cold a lot, but I’m always nice and warm when I wear it.”
In winter, Ms Francis rarely ventures out of the house.
“I’m a sook. I don’t like the winter weather,” she said.
“When I have to, I jump out of it when I have to go out and, when I get home, I put it straight back on.”
Ms Francis has a three-year-old daughter who also has a lady bug onesie, as well as one of Dora the Explorer.
NEXT WEEK: The Ballarat International Foto Biennale kicks off this weekend, so the town will start buzzing with photographers, exhibitions and tourists. We want you to capture the biennale in some way, whether it is you at an exhibition, whether it is something different in town, or extra photographers roaming our streets.
WHAT TO DO: Using your iPhone or Android app, free to download from iTunes or the Google Play Store, click on report and then assignments. Submit your photo under Appy Hour: Foto Biennale to win one of two copies of the book Retrospective by John Cato and have your picture published in next Friday’s paper.
