I. HATE. SUMMER. Hate it. I'm an Autumn/Winter girl and have never, ever like the heat. Where I live in southern Ontario on the shores of Lake Ontario, our summers can be VERY humid. Today, it was already 32C when I left for work this morning and, by noon, it's going to be close to 37C with a humidex of 44C. Ugh. Hate it.
It's always a struggle to be well-groomed in such heat. I don't like going without hosiery at work (feels unprofessional for a cemetery office), but there's no way in HELL I'm putting any on in the this heat. Our dress code is such that sundresses or exposed shoulders are out and, even if we were allowed to wear them, the A/C in the office is kept so cold, you'd need a sweater anyway. It's ridiculous.
Make-up is minimal; a touch of mascara and lip-stain. Don't get me started on trying to tame my hair. I've grown it out a bit and have it cut in an asymmetrical bob, but you'd never know it in this humidity; my hair is a halo of frizzy curls. Ugh. It's hard to look elegant and classy when one sweats like a pig.
