Immersion clothing

I am a beginner kayaker and would to get some comments on what to wear paddling in LI Sound in colder conditions. I was considering a wetsuit, just farmer johns, mostly because they seem foolproof and cheap. Worried a wetsuit may be really uncomfortable, though, for any extended period, and probably worthless during the summer months. I need to consider being wet a lot during the early part of the learning curve.

Any advice for the novice appreciated
