A Previously Unrecognized Joy

I used to wear jeans almost exclusively but things change. Now I wear jeans for a few hours each week for horseback riding lessons and that's it. For the rest of the day I am in a skirt or a dress. I have taken to wearing skirts and dresses to the exclusion of all else for the last several months (5 months? 8 months? I wasn't really paying attention. lol) and I am feeling more feminine and girly than ever before. It's a feeling I treasure and it is building my confidence. I never really felt sexy before but I do now more than ever before. It's wonderful! I really enjoy wearing long skirts but have been trying to introduce different lengths for variety and to see how I feel in them. I like pencil skirts because they look so good on me. I would love to find a sweater dress that looks great on me and that will keep me warm as the weather turns colder. And I have discovered the joy of boots for fashion instead of just for working around horses. This is a new side of myself that I am thoroughly enjoying and it never would have happened if I had not had some....encouragement. I never would have guessed skirts and dresses would have this big of an impact on me!

I too enjoy wearing skirts and dresses. But I do find I need to wear pants for some activities like yard work, camping, hiking, climbing ladders, etc.

yes skirts look more feminine, I rarely wear jeans, never like them though I like shorts, but I always love skirts, Pencil skirts are also sexy as it nicely highlights outline of below waist

I totally agree, pencil skirts are awesome. I love how flattering they are and they are usually of a length that makes them easier to wear than some of the shorter skirts. And thanks for commenting, I love getting comments:-) lol

Good for you! Your feminity is asserting herself & this world needs more well dressed ladies.

Curious, as a man who prefers dresses to jeans I can totally understand how you feel about them :-) I don't consider myself a "woman trapped in a man's body"; it's not some sexual urge for me. It just feels so much more relaxing to have a skirt flowing around my legs. I think the world would be a happier place if everyone wore dresses!
