I wore my new dress today. I also did my nails last night to match it, found a necklace I made last year. It just all came together and I’m really happy with how I look today.

You look gorgeous! How many compliments did you get today?  Now, if only you had some pumps to go with that......  ;)

I've been out of the loop a few days while on vacation in FL.  Mostly what I've been wearing is my bathing suit and maybe a coverup. That or a wetsuit for the couple of days of scuba.  This morning we woke up to go paddle boarding with one of my best friends and major ally and my wife.  So back to a bathing suit.  It's been fun watching all the people down hear do double takes not knowing what to make of me.  The resort we are at is full of rednecks form places like Arkansas and Alabama.  No one's been rude but I can tell I'm expanding some peoples experience. lol

I didn't bring my underwater camera this time but we dove the same wreck on the first day that I've done before so here's a pic of that as well.  I wanted to focus on being a good underwater buddy to my wife this trip which is impossible if I bring the camera.

I have my 3in heeled boots I thought about wearing but they have gold eyelets. So far 0 compliments from anyone at work. I know I’m gonna get an earful when I get home so I’m in a bit of an emotional tailspin at the moment.

Shame on them. You look great! I WISH I had a dress that fit that well.

 

Hugs!

Wow - that fits you so well and is a wonderful dress. While the boots are not completely out of place in today's younger generation, I would love to see what that combination looks like with some heels.

 

Your hair, makeup and beads are an excellent match for the dress with you hair bringing some necessary colour.❤️

Liz you look fantastic major win with that outfit.

❤️Thanks everyone. I'll definitely wear heels next time. My knees are a little achy from another weekend of yard work so I wore the other boots. I'm feeling better now. No compliments,their loss. They could've seen me smile. I think everyone was in a crappy mood today. Maybe it's the retrograde.

@Elizabeth Star and everyone, it’s about how YOU feel… I wear what I wear for me, because I feel good and love who I am. Thankfully others like what I wear (especially my girlfriend) but for those who don’t, it’s their problem, not mine.

Today I'm wearing a pleated flower print skirt with a white blouse and wedge sandals.

I have company coming over to day so I choose this.

Had to run to the Home Improvement Store for some plumbing supplies.  I don't usually wear snug clothes, but I broke out the tank top (with sport bra) today.  It's hot already this morning.

Very true. It was the first time I actually wore a dress anywhere. I was terrified I might hear whispers or snickering from people so it had me on edge all day. It's why I could've really used a reassuring compliment.  I don't know why I look at it any differently then wearing a skirt but I did.

Linda Marie, I sure your guest liked your outfit!

 

Jandi, I was working with my wife in the yard and I told her if we lived anywhere hotter I would never wear a bra!  Too hot!!

Jani-  Yeah.  If I'm just staying home I usually forgo the bra and go for a single light layer.  But I'm not comfortable with that in public.  It does get hot and humid around here, and I don't have AC.

Today I'm wearing this dress again. It is an easy pull over. I'm really thinking now this is what I will wear to the drag brunch in Asheville with my wife and daughter.

Feeling very suburban housewife-y today.  Wearing my padded pushup bra to get use to this bust profile (and breaking it in for my wife's adjustment to BA in 2.5 months. ) I think I like this "size"

"NYDJ "shorts with a typical tshirt you would buy on vacation at the beach lol.  

Hair I couldn't be bothered with today so just bunched it up.

I fired a receptionist yesterday so have to work later so at some point I will up my game.

That's a very feminine look. I like it a lot.

Been on leave this week and needed to wear something a bit older so I can do a run to the recycling centre with all the clippings from our hedges. 

 

It was an interesting start to the day, where I agreed with my wife that I would remain in male mode for a couple of hours while we walked the dog together. There are 2 rules that remain in place while I am presenting as Niamh (most of the others I've managed to get rid of!). One is that we don't go out together and the other is that I'm not allowed to walk the dog!

 

I pointed out to my wife that although I was in male clothes my nails were definitely in Niamh mode and I wasn't intending to clean them off just so I could paint them on again later in the day. She shrugged and said OK, lets just get walking. 

 

I'm hoping that like the other rules I initially agreed to when I first came out (i.e. I would only dress as Niamh while my wife was at work and under no circumstances was I to go outside of the house as well as keeping it all a secret) these remaining 2 rules will like the others be consigned to the bin. Fingers crossed.

I guess rule are rules Niamh.

Maybe someday she will ease up with the rules but I have to wonder why the no going outside rule?

All dolled up for an evening shift at the reception desk.  The dress is mid thigh length.

Just saying, I caught up with an old friend who I hadn't seen in at LEAST twenty years and she had this to say:

 

"So, how ARE your boobs?"

"Too small, but perky."

"Mine are heavy and sweaty."

 

Size isn't everything.

I’ve been splitting wood for three days but today I’m headed to market.  This old farmer does her best to dress decently for town.

 

Hugs,

      Solly, I'm glad you found the forum. I've found it to be a wonderful place full of caring people who share their experience, give advice & support, & accept me just as I am. I think you will find it so as well. This gender journey isn't a race, so you can take all the time you need, relax & breathe. Where we fit on the gender spectrum is where we find we feel comfortable, some are fluid & don't fix themselves with a specific label. It's all up to you.   Welcome! Delcina

      @Willow those are legitimate gripes and I concur. Wish people would respect others differences and not try to find humor where it's not.

      Good morning everyone.  Rain predicted for here in the top of Virginia today and tomorrow.   I have a question for ya’ll.  I get offended by some things which I feel are taking a shot at us.  For example, a joke on Facebook showed a fat dog and the caption was “I identify as trans slim”.  Or I don’t like female impersonators.  They are nothing like us yet they were allowed to advertise their show on on a transgender only secret website.  Am I overly sensitive?  Is it wrong to feel these sorts of things are offensive to me?  Let me know what you think.   @Elizabeth Star I was a Jack! Now Jill of all trades.  Made furniture, repaired the house and car, replaced a roof, you name it ive probably done it.  But I’m getting older and muscle mass is lessened.  My last project was definitely not up to my standard so I’m done.  Giving my stationery power tools to my son.  Gave away or sold a lot of stuff during our move out.  And will likely have more to deal with after we move in to our new place.  And my eyesight, very frustrating and upsetting when I can’t see clearly.  Nothing is ever at the correct focal distance.     let me know if I’m being overly sensitive with things I think are slaps at us.   Willow

      @Elizabeth Star now that you have experience how about doing my and Cyndee's doors ?
    • Elizabeth Star
      I would be so mad if I broke a nail working on this stuff. I could hire someone to do the work but since I know what's involved I have trouble trusting other people's quality.
    • TiredAndScared
      Thank you all of course. I will get over it.  It's just that it's still a pain when it happens. That sounds kinda heartless but well....   to be brutally  honest.... that wasn't my dad anymore the last few years. It's his body of course.  But not him.. It was that, with every visit, he was a little bit more gone... So we already kinda said goodbye to him during the last 5 years or so. He could't recognize anyone anymore and couldn't do anything anymore..  For him it's sort of a good thing i guess....  He wouldn't want to be kept alive like this... Most things are already arranged by now... Cards have been picked and texts have been chosen. Dad is brought home in a coffin and ... what is the English term?...  laid out? (that sounds weird google translate) Just he's now presentable for anyone who wants to say goodbye. But it will be a week before he will get cremated. Mom still has her ankle operation going on tomorrow. So i have to get up early to bring her to the hospital.   Today i remembered something my dad thought me while i was a kid... Forgotten it for the longest time but .... He once told me:   "i don't care what you do with your life, be a president or a garbage collector. Just be happy with what you do" Not sure how old i was... somewhere between 10~12 years or something? I should keep that teaching in my life...  I know he mend it for my work career but i should apply it to my whole life...   Anyways,  for now i'm going to chill a bit. Woke up at 04am and with everything that happend i got a bit tired.

      Just a link.  But being informed is best and real sources .  Its not an easy read ,for most . I was a  science major .   nejm.org   The New England Journal of Medicine: Research & Review Articles on Disease & Clinical Practice (nejm.org)

      Liz you're a jill of all trades it seems! I'm done with that kinda stuff.  I know how to fix most things, but I started pawning tht out to contractors about 7 years ago.  I used my back issues as the excuse but in reality, I just don't want to do all the "fix it up" stuff anymore. (especially after a manicure haha).  I think people have also started changing their expectations of me as well.  People use to come to me for help with all the "manly trades" but no one in the last year has except to borrow a tool or something.  My neighbor didn't even ask for my help building his deck (I've built 20 by now) even though I offered to help back before my transition.  We used to help each other with things like that. It's not like he isn't comfortable with my transition, he and his wife have been amazingly supportive and his Oklahoma courtesies of "Yes Ma'am" never fail to tickle me but he is definitely not going to ask a woman for help with carpentry. haha I find myself slipping into my feminine stereotypes more and more and I like it .

      More of the news had a DR Zoom appointment Friday,  something in the New England Journal of Medicine  and from the research from Israel.  While no vaccine is 100 percent effective , its the non vaccinated who are at risk .   More of sources where to look .  While less of a personal touch I like the DR Zoom as no need to drive or take the T or pay to park near Fenway .

      On yesterday's episode of: A woman's Work is Never Done.   On my way how from work mt partner called to let me know her mother bought us a new back door. The original door was very old, beat up and had almost zero insulation value. We knew it had to be replaced, I just didn't want to do it "right now". I got home just in time to take five-er before there was knock on the door. In walks my MIL, FIL and BIL. Before I knew it, I was tearing out the old door. The door faces West and we're on a hill so I spent the next 5 hours roasting in the afternoon sun. Thankfully I didn't have all the trim that's needed so I was able to call it quits after the door was and frame were mounted. Plan is to get the final trim work done this morning and then back to cutting up the trees I dropped last weekend.   For you amusement I included a picture, my partner took, of me while I was working and of the newly installed door.

      @Niamh looking cute as always! @Emily MicheleAdorable!  I'm glad to hear you're healing well. You must be on top of the world!
    • Bri2020
      Congrats on starting the new chapter with your wife and daughter! I agree with your sentiments. Also, the longer you hide something from significant people in your life, the percentage chance of keeping it all together go down. I understood that when I finally accepted who I was, I couldn't keep that from my wife for long. Don't be surprised if however, things get more challenging for you two.  Talk to each other, opening up about the loss and well as the joy of living your true self.  She might be really supportive right now but then go through the stages of grief like denial, anger, bargaining etc.  GET a couples counselor to help you all navigate the change now instead of waiting for some crisis to develop. Good luck!

      @LaurenA I agree with @Jackie C. you are doing amazing considering what you've had to deal with and I'm proud of you. Just wanted to let you know that.
    • Davie
      @TiredAndScared So sorry to hear that. Endings are always sad no matter what. Take time to sit with it, let go, and to take care of yourself. The best tribute is to live a life you love and that brings you happiness. That's what has helped me get through similar situations. We're here for you. 🙏 Davie
