Tuesday was very hot. I had to go to class, so I had to choose my outfit.
I do not like to show much skin, so that rules out short dresses and shorts.
However, it was such hot day, I was tempted to break the rules and attempt a short dress. I own those dresses, but I always wear them with trousers.
I opted for black trousers with a white T-shirt.
I had no jacket because there was no possibility of rain or a chilly evening.
I came home, and tried to cool down.
Wednesday was a relief as it rained and was cool.
Dealing with hot weather is difficult for me.
The main reason is I prefer to cover up. I am too shy to go out in a crop top, or something which would keep me cool all day.
I do won such things, but I always wear a T-shirt underneath.
I do not like to show my legs.
They are so pale I would have to spend an hour applying false tan, and I always get that wrong.
I look orange, and patchy.
So I have to figure out how to get through hot days.
If I was not so shy, and I had naturally tanned legs, I would probably try a short skirt or shorts. But I will not dress like that even in the garden, where no-one can see me.
I sit there and worry the neighbours will pop their heads over the fence and start chatting.
I worry they will say,..
‘How pale your legs are? Why don’t you try false tan? Have you tried the mitt? I have a mitt. It’s great, really fast. and looks natural!’
All of the above are lies anyway. All false tan looks false.
I have tried everything on the market, including Clarins.
Clarins is opposed to be one of the best, and ‘golden’. But I still looked orange.
Also, the rest of me is pale. So I have tanned legs, but my arms are pale.
I can’t use tan on my arms, that was a mistake I will never repeat.
All the lotion settles on the elbows, so the elbows turn orange, and the rest of the arm is pale and patchy.
It is best to wear a long dress and stay under a tree, with a bottle of water.
So far, the morning is cool. I hope it stays that way.
