Top 5 Worst Things About Shorts In The Summer

Top 5 Worst Things About Shorts In The Summer

Although they are staple during the summer, they can be a pain.

Shorts in the summer are a must. Nearly everyone wears them because the it's too hot to wear anything else. They look good too, which is always a plus. Although they are staple during the summer, they can be a pain. Below are the top five worst things about wearing shorts in the summer.

1. Sunburn in the car

If any skin is visible while riding in the car on a hot summer day, I know I'm guaranteed to get burned. This is especially the case if I have the window rolled down and my arm hanging out the window. As far wearing shorts goes, my legs tend to get a little burnt just from sitting in the car.

2. Legs sticking to seats

Whether it be booths in restaurants or leather seats in a car, if I'm wearing shorts in the summer, my legs are bound to stick to them. The fun part is standing up and feeling as if my skin is being ripped off of my legs. Fun times!

3. Shorts riding up

Everyone has that one pair, or every pair of shorts that rides up when walking, sitting, or breathing for that matter. The shorter the shorts, the worse it is.

4. Sweating

Alright, so sweating in the summer is something that happens no matter what is being worn, but for some reason my legs sweat more if I'm wearing shorts. That may be a personal problem but who knows, someone else might have the same thing in common.

5. Legs rubbing together

My legs rubbing together is the absolute worse. It's even more fun when my legs rubbing together causes a painful rash. That's just one of the perks of wearing shorts I guess.

Picking Your Outfit Shouldn’t Be The Hardest Part Of A Job Interview

Dress for the job you want, not the job you already have.

Do you remember your very first interview? I know I do. I remember mine all too well: what I wore, what I said, and how I acted. I didn’t take it seriously because, for me at 16 years old, a part-time job at a pizza joint wasn’t a life or death opportunity.

Looking back, I cringe and feel embarrassed for my teenage self because I didn't come prepared, meaning, no resume, no prepared answers, or proper interview attire. I was naive and now realize that I took those opportunities for granted, especially since so many people struggle to find work to be able to support themselves and their families.

Rest assured, I learned from my mistakes as I progressed through my teenage years and into my young adult life. I began to do thorough research on the employer and even developed a list of interview questions I’ve ever been asked so I could use them as a resource in the future. I began to realize that interview attire is an unwritten rule, meaning nobody tells us what to wear, but there is a general understanding of what is and isn’t appropriate. And while my wardrobe improved with each interview, I still to this day have a tough time deciding what to wear. Do I wear heels or flats? A dress or pantsuit? A nice blouse with or without a blazer?

You can Google your heart out, ask friends and family, or read up on the company to get a better understanding of its culture, but there’s still a gray area with interview attire. Of course, you want to put your best foot forward, but at the same time, you don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard or look out of place.

According to a recent survey, 34% of men and 26% of women think interviews are one of the most confusing occasions to dress for, so at least I know I’m not alone. Whether it’s your university career fair, an interview for a summer internship or your first post-grad job, my best advice is to dress for the job you want, not the job you have.

3 Egyptian Sisters Are Taking The World By Storm

Your favorite celebrities are sporting their bags, are you?

Some may have heard of it, but most of us haven't, at least not yet. The brand Okhtein has been taking the world by storm and making a name for themselves and their heritage.

The brand was launched in 2013 by two sisters, Aya and Mounaz Abdelraouf, who were both born and raised in Cairo. The name of their brand, Okhtein, literally translates in meaning to "two sisters." They both attended the American University of Cairo and were both interested in the art field.

Y'all, their bags are gorgeous. Each bag has a message behind it that relates back to Egyptian culture, design, and history. Their accessories are sourced and manufactured in Egypt. They even took a philanthropic approach to their manufacturing and have collaborated with non-profits that seek to provide assistance to skilled female workers.Their luxury brand has shed light on handmade Egyptian artisanship and I am all about it.

One of their most popular bags is their box clutch, named “Palmette Minaudiere,” is what most celebrities are seen with and is the most eye-catching.

Their bags are hand embroidered, and they specialize in bags made of leather, cotton, canvas, and straw.

Okhtein has even gone international and has been seen on your favorite celebrities. Queen Bey herself was seen sporting an Okhtein belt bag in a bright orange in one of her Instagram posts. Other celebrity favorites seen sporting Okhtein include Kris Jenner, Tracee Ellis Ross (for all us Black-ish fans), Emma Roberts, Scandal actress Darby Stanchfield, Emma Watson, and Pitch Perfect actress Brittany Snow.

So go ahead and treat yo-self and get your hands on an Okhtein bag.
