Loving the updates here. @Bri2021That's a classy outfit, very elegant.

 

I just got back from a little essential shopping and exercise. This was what I was wearing (without the gloves. I was about 3C (37F) and some snow is expected this weekend.

@Bri2021, I often dress just like that. I absolutely love the dragonfly though. I've been looking for a nice dragonfly pendant. My spouse, tragically, doesn't QUITE "get" my style choices.

 

@ElizabethStar, love the sweater. I agree, it would look good kind of off one shoulder. It is what it is though, I'd just be happy it fits.

 

@Niamh... I need your coat. It's cold here and while mine is pretty, it's not warm and I really have to layer up. I'd love some down that looks that nice.

 

I'm still dressed for the gym so I'll spare you the carnage. Grey racerback, lavender tights. Nothing fancy.

 

Hugs!

Looking fabulous ladies!  

Yes Liz, that off shoulder look would be nice although like Jackie says the sweater is nice as is. I'm not brave enough for off shoulder though.  The phone case is amazing.  

Niamh I'm loving everything going on there right down to the buckles on the boots.

Jackie given how much you work out, I don't think a pic of the workout attire would be "carnage" lol

Thank you to everyone on the compliments!

The phone case..... I actually got it awhile before I was out. It had one of those ring things on it but it blocked the image so there was no love lost when it fell off. Not that you can tell in the pic but my phone is rose gold. More things about myself I should have paid better attention to.

Behold my first experiment with full-body selfies and the timer function on my phone camera.

I chose the rose gold Apple watch when I bought one. I'd probably chose a phone like that too, except that I'm still using an iPhone 5 like they had on the Flintstones.

 

@Jackie C.  Super cute and warm! I love the blues with blonde hair look so much!

 

Love,

I see where you're going from a fashion perspective here!  I love the front zip sweater!  Your choices all highlight my insecurities. lol. I hate my tattoos now so don't like exposed my shoulders or back. I'm also not brave enough to bear my tummy yet so you go girl!

Are the jeans new? Cause damn! you look good in skinny jeans.

This is as short a skirt as I'm brave enough to wear and as you can see, I'm covering my gargantuan and tattooed shoulders. lol

@Bri2021Thanks Bri. Yea the jeans are new. I've had the cropped hoodie and boots for a while though.

I do like you outfit, especially the skirt, but I find myself still shying away from patterns. I think white clothes hate me. The last time I wore white I made it a whole 5 minutes before spilling coffee on it.

I feel that. Every time I wear white I'm in terror I'm going to spill something on it. Doesn't stop me though. I've got a white peasant skirt and a couple pairs of white pants. I look fantastic in them.

 

Hugs!

@Bri2021, I think your shoulders look perfectly feminine in shape and size...maybe it’s the outfit but I don’t see them as oversized at all. Also, I have to say that this new hairstyle makes you look very pretty. It really frames your face nicely.

Aww- I love you right now.... we all have our insecurities though right?

My hairstyle is courtesy of a run in with an old client last night at work who just found out I was trans when she walked in. She's a hair stylist so naturally we talked hair.  Same haircut as before but after I put curling cream in she said to then scrunch it with a dry t-shirt or microfiber cloth. It absorbs some of the cream and the curls set/dry quickly.  If you do it with your hands the curls don't air dry fast enough and weighs things down.

Well, it looks great @Bri2021! Your old client gave you a fabulous new look. I like it!

 

Believe it or not, I use curling cream (given to me as a gift) like a setting cream to hold my loose curls instead of using hairspray and I have to say, it works pretty well.

 

If my hair is dry, I dampen it lightly with warm water from a spray bottle combing it thru evenly....not too wet though. Then drop a dab of curling cream into my palms and spread it in my palms and run my palms and fingers evenly through my hair. Then I comb it in with a fine comb. Then I use a blow dryer on the lowest setting and round brush my curls to style just before it’s fully dry. The loose curls last as long or maybe longer than hairspray without that tacky feel in my hair

 

I will have to try your method to see if I might look better with a few tighter curls. It could work well and may save me some time curling it when I want a different look. Thanks for the tip!

Or use a diffuser and scrunch a section of hair into it and push it up to your scalp and run it for a couple minutes / until it sets, then go to another section. I use a medium heat so I don't burn myself since it staying in one place for a bit.  Not sure how any of this will work if you don't have much natural curl but worth a shot.

Rather simple today. Going up to a friends house for a visit and wedding ceremony practice. New sweater and jeans that I got yesterday. Although I did manage to get a hint of cleavage for the first time.

I call shenanigans. From that picture that's WAY more than a hint. I wish I had that much up top.

      Morning @Tasha Marie
    • ElizabethStar
      I work with a guy like that. He's been problematic since the beginning of my journey. Even had the nerve to bitch (literally does it all the time) at his supervisor about my low-ish-cut top. She pointed out the fact that she gave me that top and he had no problems when she wore it.
    • Drayse
      That could be a good thing. Here's hoping!
    • Jamie68
      That's a GREAT story. Sounds like things are looking up for you. My wife is still in the grieving stage, but she is really making an effort to support me though. She calls me "Jamie" more and more often now. Small improvements are much better than no improvements.
    • Myles97
      Update 1 Yesterday (3/6) I worked up the nerve and came out to my mom and sister! My dad passed away in 2005, so I’ve officially come out to my entire “immediate family.” It was so scary at first. I sent them a text message (long letter type text) to our group chat, and then felt absolutely sick to my stomach. I wished more than anything I could unsend the text. But I couldn’t, and spoiler alert, in the long run I’m glad I couldn’t. I basically live posted on here on a different forum that I started on self doubt as I waited my mom and sister to respond. And it made the world of different having folks on here comfort me throughout the process. My sister called first and she told me she loved me, and that she was happy to have a brother now. She is so proud of me and so sad that I struggled in silence for so long. She said I can always trust her with anything and she will support me to the ends of the earth. She is an absolute gift y’all. My mom had still not responded by this point. I was really scared she wasn’t taking it well. So my sister called her to check in and they talked for a while. My sister called me back and said that mom had just read the text and wasn’t mad or disappointed at all. She was also sad that I felt like I had to suffer in silence for all these years. My sister said my mom still loved me and would like to chat if I felt up to it. But she understood if I wanted to wait and talk later - I’m glad she was patient and recognizing how hard this was for me. I imagine it was also a lot for her to process. I called her, and she and her boyfriend talked with me on the phone. She reassured me that she supports me 100% in anything I do, she just wants me to be happy. She also asked me to be patient with her as she learns my new name and pronouns. I told her of course, it’s a learning curve for my partner and I too. We will all get there with practice. I can’t even begin to describe to you the relief I feel now. I’m still scared that my mom is going to call and change her mind about being supportive - but that is my own anxiety I need to deal with. I am relieved, but I am also ready for some normalcy. For years I’ve struggled silently, for months I have processed out loud traumatically, and now I’m having to take something that was once my biggest secret and share it with everyone. It is freeing but it also makes you feel so incredibly vulnerable. And that’s a tough way to feel sometimes.  But I am proud of myself and I am grateful to have a partner who has boldly stood by me through this entire process. I would have never worked up the courage to tell my family without her. If you would’ve told me years ago, months ago, or even two days ago that today I would be writing a post about how my family has said they love and accept me for who I am I would have never believed you. Again, that’s me projecting my own insecurities. But I hope that some of you can relate to this experience. And even if your coming out story did not start as happily as this one, that’s okay too. I am here for you all just the way you have been here for me. We will all navigate together, and we can be your chosen family. I am hoping that once I am officially out to everyone I will finally feel settled. I am tired of lying/hiding and the conversations of “coming out” are incredibly exhausting. Anyways, I’m on my way to normalcy and I am sincerely happy. And I am so happy my new normal is life as Myles.

      Never heard before but perfect choice for early Sunday morning. Nice groove and layering as you said. Thank you.

      That is definitely good news Kay. As you said, one step at a time! There were several times in the last year I didn't know if my marriage could survive, but my wife has moved a lot. It wasn't easy to get here. Praying yours does as well.   Hugs, Mike

      I'm out of coffee again. It's Earl Grey for me.   Yesterday was my wife's birthday. Her brother and his GF came over to make dinner and see what we've done with our place. We had spent most of the day cleaning our house. I didn't put any effort into my outfit and spent the day in a pair VS/PINK brand 3/4 yoga pants and a hoodie. I had fully expected to be asked to change before her brother came over but when the time came she said I looked fine and I don't need to change. Later on she opened gifts. One of the is a chicken coop. Ever since she found out we can have chickens on our property she's been obsessed with the idea. A wall worthy event.   We have a section of brick wall in our living room. There was a free standing fireplace once upon a time so I guess the wall put for fire protection. Anyways the bricks are painted white. One of our friends suggested we write a life event on each brick as the happens. We bought the house, wrote on a brick. Wife got her chicken coop, wrote it on a brick. So last night while I was up on a stool writing that she got her chicken coop she suggests that we paint the bricks different colors. "Ya know, your pride colors". Me: rainbow or pink,blue and white? Her: pink,blue and white. I almost fell off the stool.   Later we were all just hanging out, talking, drinking wine and somehow (I think my wife just threw it out there) that I'm (me) the girl in the relationship and she's the boy since she's such a tom-boy and hates dressing up and having to put on face. She does love her baseball caps.   I'm just going to, at my own risk, assume she has finally settled with idea that she married a trans-girl.

      Hi @Shawnster.  I know exactly where you are coming from. From the time I came out to my wife as transfeminine (about a year ago) it has been a similar denial and avoidance on her part.  Other than that our daily relationship is a good one, but its on her terms for what I am allowed to do (or more what I am not allowed to do .. ). That means the underlying tension always resurfaces at some point and then there is a meltdown on her part.  I had asked her before to attend therapy with me but she always told me she did not feel the need (I guess she saw it as "my problem" not hers).  But after the last meltdown she finally offered to attend (last week). One session did not solve everything between us but I came out of that with the feeling she had definitely moved in the right direction of "understanding" even if its not quite acceptance yet. Bottom line is, IF your wife loves you (and I have no doubt you love her as you declared), couples therapy (and possible individual therapy for both of you) may be your best chance at both of you being happy ... together. One other thing .. I have not started HRT yet.  But (for me) I feel I would need my wife's blessing before I started.  (For me again) Starting without her knowing/accepting would be a betrayal of her trust in me. Deep breaths ... one step at a time.
