Boots N Jeans for a Quick
an interesting week of having my wife away yet not being able to get out
as a girl during regular daytime hours, I was really dying to find a
window in order to just get outside crossdressed as a girl. I had a
brief opportunity this morning for about an hour, and sometimes that
short span of time seems like too much trouble, but when I have new
things to wear and new outfits to try, I just have to get out even if it
is for just an hour.
We actually needed a few groceries, so I had a legitimate errand to run,
and so I thought it would be fun to head to the Smith's MarketPlace,
which has the expected groceries but also has housewares, apparel, and
even lingerie! I didn't have tons of time to browse the department store
section, but I just wanted to get out in the winter time wearing my new
boots. The weather outside was clear, but the air was still quite
chilly, and so I decided to wear a long, wool sweater over my outfit.
This particular sweater is a conservative crème color and actually falls
right around my mid-thigh area. It has buttons all the way from the top
to bottom, and if I had a really skinny body, I think I could get away
wearing just this sweater as a sweater dress with tights and my boots. I
wasn't that confident in my look today, however, so I opted for a
more casual look wearing this sweater over a simple top and blue jeans.
for my top, over the summer I purchased what Old Navy calls a Perfect
Tee in a pretty peach color. There really is nothing fancy about the
tee. It has short sleeves, a gentle rounded neck, and thin cotton
fabric. There's just something about it, however, that always makes me
want to wear it, and I really loved how it went with my new blue jeans
from Old Navy. As I have been testing out various combination of winter
outfits the last few weeks, I noticed that this particular sweater is
extremely toasty, and so I wanted to counter that by wearing a light
summer top underneath. If I was going to be spending a lot of time
outdoors in the chilly air, I would have bundled up more, but knowing
that I would be inside for the majority of this outing, I decided to
dress light underneath.
Along with the perfect tee in peach, I just had to wear out my new jeans
purchased during Black Friday shopping. There is nothing at all fancy
about these particular jeans, but that was definitely the look I was
trying to achieve this morning: simple mom out running a quick errand.
As for an extra benefit that most moms out that morning didn't take
advantage of, I wore a sheer pair of pantyhose in a suntan shade beneath
my jeans making everything feel better underneath. The final piece to my
outfit puzzle were my new boots, and this would be the first time that
I'd actually get to wear them out, and I was super excited that I would
be able to wear them over blue jeans and nylons. The boots also look
great with black tights and a short dress or skirt that ends above my
knees, but I'm going to have to find another occasion to wear such an
morning my purpose was a quick dash to the supermarket, so boots over
blue jeans would work out perfectly.
I really needed to spend more time on my makeup and hair, but I was
rushed this morning, so I chose to go with a bit less makeup and simple,
straight hair parted down the middle. As I was trying to keep my hair in
place, the right half just didn't seem to cooperate, so I retrieved a
big red clip barrette to keep that side out of my face, and after
popping in my large hoop earrings, I grabbed my gray coach purse and
other essentials and headed for the door.
The drive to this Smith's Marketplace is about 10 minutes, and so I
tried to get some good photos from the dashboard of my car. Sometimes
the low sun in the winter provides for good photo opportunities from my
car, but I just couldn't get a good angle today as I traveled to Smiths.
It seems like there was plenty of light from my lips down, but the upper
half of my head was always in the shadows. I did find one pic taken from
straight on that actually shows an SUV behind me, so I'll choose that
one to post for today's diary entry. (Note to self: taking selfies while
operating a motor vehicle is extremely dangerous, even if you are
dressed like a girl.)
