What are you wearing today?

Well this not what I'm wearing today. This is me some 15+years ago, wondering, what will I be wearing

15 years from now? Little did I know back then I would pack on 15 pounds to go with what I was wearing

15 years from then. Sigh.

Feeling cute today! I love this cover so threw a cami top on beneath. NYDJ skinny jeans and ankle booties. Also wanted to show off the earring choice, they are relatively new and I love the silver spiral look.

@Drayse, if you have sewing skills it's easy to "bring it in" on T-shirts through the sides to give it the curved look in womens t-shirts.  A seamstress would probably only charge $5 to do it.

I do love looking here but sadly I don't get to wear any really cute clothes - just average things that are conservative as my wife is not far along in her acceptance AND I live in a very right wing part of the country and would fear for my safety.

You just need to road trip to my liberal hippie town and we can go shopping together Shay!

I forgot to post this one from last week, just to show that I am lucky and get to go out as Niamh in our local town. Most people smile and say hello - it's quite a friendly place and I usually pop in one of the shops either for a snack to take home or into one of the few places that are still allowed to open and have cosmetics on sale (I get through quite a bit!) There was a nasty cold wind, but I was nicely wrapped up :)

Why do people have this notion "liberal" areas are safer/ more accepting than "conservative" areas in the case of trans people?

I have been in both extensively and found people in so called conservative areas are very accepting even more so than liberal areas.

Northern Ohio (Cleveland) were very nasty and rude to me,New Jersey the same way, Maryland the same way.

Macon Ga, In the mountains of eastern Ky , western West Virginia people were kind and very respectful. Yes the so called "good ol boys" Were nice as they could be.

My point is go out dressed as any woman would.Dress for the occasion or event if you want.

The ones that attract attention are the ones that dress like hookers basically. I haven't seen any ladies here that dress that way so I am not referring to anyone here.

Dress for attention OK but you better be ready to handle what comes at you because it will.

I went thru my phase of "hey get a load of me in my mini skirt and sexy hose" and I got my share of trouble trust me.

HRT was very good to me because I had developed quit well.

My wanting to "show off" got me in trouble.

I'm glad that you were able to find good people @Teri Anne. 😊 Ultimately that's what matters, not some political button.

I have to agree with you on this.

The "preview button" is no longer there? And cannot 'edit' posts . . 

 

 

@Jackie C. couldn't agree more! Lose the "belly fat"  . . by working on the abs . . and the hourglass "hip shape" will appear? I too get jealous upon looking at certain other women but but . . then again, they usually not as T A L L as I which, being somewhat intimidating for men, renders a slight figure even that more important? 

Contrary to popular gender theory I feel "a woman" is solely defined by her ability to exude an explicit sexuality?

Ab work won't reduce belly fat though, but if spot reduction were a thing that would be awesome! 😊

 

All you can do is maintain appropriate calorie levels, exercise to build lean muscle mass and hope your genetics will allow belly definition at safe body fat levels. Not all of us girls will ever achieve washboard abs. I know I don't have them.

I feel like a soccer mom today. I ended putting my hair in a high ponytail, really completed the look.

Happy St Paddy's Day. This is MY HOLIDAY. lol.  Usually I'm at the pub for kegs and eggs by 7am.  In a non covid situation I close my clinic and take the staff out to the pub for a very long lunch and we celebrate the year and friendships.  This is my first year as Bri and I'm a bit bummed I will be working since Pub crawls are very off limits.  That doesn't mean I can't feel like I'm celebrating so this morning I'm cooking my own fried breakfast, having a little home made irish whiskey in my coffee and then heading to work. I hope to have my neighbors over for a corned beef /taters/cabbage dinner out on our patio by the fire tonight.  I found an old "velcro" kilt that fits me again (it's from 15 years ago and I "out grew it" for quite a while.)  Now that I'm skinnier again....   I think it pairs nice with the tights and big belt.  Tied the hair back with green ribbon.

I like that! I dressed up today too, but it was mostly because I just wanted to look pretty. Today's outing is the allergist. Whee.

 

Hugs!

I finally got out of my PJs into a multi-color long sleeve yoga top, gray t-shirt skirt and sleepy socks.

What am I wearing today? Well it is an outfit I've posted before but hey, this time a different pose!

Oh and I used clear nail polish this time and changed my hair and make up. So, in my book, this is a new post.

So if that is all I have to worry about, then things are going good!

I really enjoy being here and meeting you all. 

Take care and may-be see you at the coffee shop.

The Cleveland area as a whole really isn't liberal per se anyway. It's a very even mix.

 

And yes, unfotunately there are a lot of really nasty people around here. Although I do know from personal experience (non-trans related though) that at least around the Cleveland areas I'm familiar with, there does (very unfortunately) tend to be a high correlation between Cleveland's rural areas, conservative political leaning, and general intolerance and rudeness. But of course, there are always exceptions, too, and I'm glad to hear it doesn't always extend to other parts of the country.

I have run into rude people in a lot of different areas of the country but in general liberal people are less accepting because if you differ from them you are for some reason not as good as they are.

I have family in the Washington DC area and they tend to think down on me because because I accept people and support the trans community.

Well, I just went to a store like this, and I think I picked up a creepy guy who kept turning up behind me.  Although, once I ditched him, I found it a little affirming.

I think we have a tendency to judge an area by a few experiences we've personally had.  I live in the DC area (20 minute SW) and it's pure liberal. 90% democrat.  I am VERY visible being out FT and I don't shy away from any social interactions, am the face of my biz, networking etc and I would say 99% of my interactions are positive if not affirming.  I had one rude experience picking up a pizza and some homeless people made a few comments when I would ask them to stop panhandling in front of my business.  I am sure there are more intolerant people in the area but by and large, this region is very accepting.  Now- the anti_MAGA sentiment is vocal and rude here so yes, being different in that way gets reactions.

 

@Ann WI'm happy it turned out to be affirming but do take care. With the headphones make sure you can hear people. Thieves/creeps take advantage of being able to sneak up on people playing music loud with headphones.   Cute purse

I often wonder if the way we feel about a certain area of the country has more to do with our own comfort level and personal experiences than the general tolerance level of the people there.  Since I retired from the military, I have lived in Pittsburgh, PA, Cleveland, Ohio and now Northern New Jersey.  I had very positive experiences in Pittsburgh and here in NJ, so my take is that these areas are more accepting.  Conversely, I had an unpleasant experience at a restaurant in Cleveland and after that, never felt very comfortable.

 

I guess what I'm saying is that we shouldn't make assumptions, especially based on only one or two observations or experiences.  Still, I won't deny that some areas can trend towards populations that are trans friendly or trans insensitive.

So today I had 2 Teams meetings and joined the video calls as Niamh. This was what I was wearing and how the other team members saw me...

Today I'm wearing a white sheer blouse and polka dot skirt. The skirt is fully lined and has an elastic waist band.

Gosh I love the elastic, no more hooks and zippers, and the way my mid section is growing, elastic is perfect.

Hope all have a nice day.

LM.

      It's interesting to read this. Apart from the stuffed animals I have the only thing I can think of is my deliberate cultivation of a childlike attitude to learning such that I can learn and accept new ideas more readily; ie I try to avoid blinkered views and similar restrictions which often come with age. In that I have no age bias and fear of appearing childish (in the keeping up appearances sense).   Your last comments on baby talk do remind me of an advert for sweets / candy over here currently which has two policemen in a police car dubbed with childrens voices. People tend to love or hate it. I tend to mimic them and similar but more my sense of humour though.   Tracy

      It's pretty clear that Republican state governments don't fear, or even take notice of, the Biden administration's policies. It looks like the Republican State governments feel they have to move quick while they still have a 6-3 scotus conservative majority until the Dems pack the courts (within the next year probably) to even things up a bit.

      Totally relate. I was locked up in a psychoward ran by Mormons when I was 12-17 years old...sex was used as currency. ...Feel kinda lucky some days that I didn't really know I was being raped. ...Other days I just feel sick and wanna blow my brains out. ...Most days though, I just want....revenge. I guess I kinda had an epiphany one day: I'm not the one who deserves to die. ...Neither are you.  Hang in there. This too shall pass. *big hugz*

      Kimber, I agree with Jackie, your parents were very accepting and supportive. Especially given that society was so different and so much less accepting back 25 years ago. Your parents loved the real YOU so much. It is a wonderful story.   Life would’ve been so much easier for many of us here if our parents could embrace our real identities. I am so glad yours embraced and accepted you so unconditionally. It sounds like an amazing experience.   I’m so sorry to hear that you had lost two siblings within a year back then. That must have been such a difficult period of your life. I can’t even imagine experiencing that kind of loss in such a short time period. We all have different crosses to bear. No journey through life is an easy one.   *Hugs* Susan R🌷

      If you are having this bad a time, it may be necessary for you to go to a hospital or an urgent care provider and see if they can provide you with some medication to help your anxiety about the memories.  You may have to cut your vacation short to deal with this, or maybe it is the vacation environment triggering you.  Please go and get some professional help before you feel compelled to hurt yourself.

      Looking lovely LM. Kaltia Bras are a constant problem with me too. Lacey bras are so pretty but the lace chaffs my skin. Sport bras I wear a lot just because the seem to hold everything in place just fine. My nice bras I save for special occasions.

      I can’t stop remembering. I’m on vacation. I need to relax. I want it to stop. I can’t forget about what he did. I keep trying to make myself forget with things like overdosing, but it doesn’t work anymore. The memories are so loud. I don’t know how to stop this.
