- Black opaque tights, which provide some resistance against any chill factor but aren't thick enough to cause overheating
- Gloves: easy to remove and small enough to carry around campus, but make a surprising difference to temperature
- A light-weight cardigan
- Light-weight silk scarf. You can tie it in your hair, throw over your head or wrap it around your neck, and when you're done, tie it onto your bag to save carrying space!
- Semi-waterproof shoes (for example leather, rubber, plastic, coated canvas, etc.) This is the time you are most likely to be caught off-guard in the rain.
- Umbrella. Following on from the last point, while walking in the rain can be atmospheric, it's charm wears off an hour or two later... Bring a compact umbrella, it can double as sun-protection if you have a picnic!
- In Sydney at this time of year, it's too early for boots and jeans! You'll find yourself sweating and regretting.
- Don't layer too much, your likely to loose something valuable and carrying it all around can be a real pain.
- Leave suede or permeable shoes at home, a pair of ruined shoes and blisters aren't fun!
And some photos of what I wore:

And here's Amber with her own advice. When it gets too cold, sunbake on some hot pebbles. Too cold? Go curl up inside on your own doggie bean-bag. Demand attention at all times.
I think Amber has the right idea...
