For those people who have read my past posts here in Kandi’s Land, you know I really enjoy wearing a skirt and stockings or a dress and pantyhose, all with shoes that have heels. And occasionally that attire might have been a little overdressed for the purpose of my outing.
Well, earlier this week I thought I would try something new; grocery shopping in totally appropriate clothes.
But the day was hot, 32C or 90F. Shorts and a scoop neck shirt with running shoes, and absolutely no stockings. I also applied minimal makeup.
I started the day by a stop at the bank and post office, nothing new for this lady. And then to the local grocery store for the regular family shopping; a first en femme.
All the interactions in the store were normal. Ordering sliced meat at the deli counter and discussing types and quantities. Being kindly treated like any other lady. Wandering the aisles and filling my cart with the required food items. All with informal hellos to strangers as we maneuvered our shopping carts past each other.
The check out with the cashier was a friendly conversation. And back to the car for the trip home. Everyone was going about their own business, as was I. What a wonderful feeling being myself, all the time trying to stay cool like all the other women in town.
I completed my journey by going for a walk in the park. Who knew, I can be just as happy wearing shorts, t-shirt and sneakers.
But, I prefer the feeling of a skirt brushing against my legs. The variety of clothes a woman may wear is wonderful.
See you on the streets!
