We have all been there – you get really excited for summer only for summer to come around and remind you of all the reasons you curse the hot weather and you start wishing for cooler days again. Do not get me wrong, I do love summer and the freedom that summer brings, but there are a few things about the hot weather I would change if I could.
This post is a collaboration with Chloe – you can check out her post here. She recently did a post featuring the most gorgeous and aesthetically pleasing bar I have ever seen which you can check out here.
It cannot just be me that finds that my hair gets increasingly frizzy during the summer the warmer it gets. I cannot comprehend how girls can walk around with their hair perfectly straight during the warmer months whilst mine starts to resemble a bird’s nest.
As someone who is naturally quite pale and always burns when outdoors for too long, I am all too familiar with the concept of tan envy. Everyone is always more tanned than me and I have to suffer through being used as the comparison colour so they can exclaim over how tanned they are. I am currently trying to find a self tanner than works well with pale skin and does not make me look orange so comment below any recommendations.
Does this need any further explanation?! As it gets warmer, our bodies start to sweat more to cool ourselves down and our clothes absorb this excess sweat to cause the all-too-familiar sweat marks. Backpack sweat is a common struggle for me.
Badly Fitting Shorts
Similar to the jeans struggle where it is almost impossible to find a pair of jeans that flatter your bottom, fit perfectly around the waist and reach your ankles, finding the perfect pair of shorts is another struggle. There appears to be a gap in the market for shorts that do not display your bottom or underwear but also look attractive.
Getting Sunglasses Caught in your Hair
Alongside the struggle of frizzy hair, I always have to worry about getting my sunglasses caught in my hair and making a further mess of it. Sunglasses make the perfect hair accessory for photographs but be prepared to fight your hair to be able to retrieve them.
What is your number one struggle in summer?
