Casual Kandi

Just the woman next door, out and about!

Two days, two very casual looks, just out, being seen, feeling wonderful, being me.

Not much to tell, but here are quite a few photos.

August 3, 2023, had a gift card from my recent birthday, so why not go out shopping without spending (too much)? I went to a local outdoor outlet mall and stopped in four stores. The one I had the gift card for and then I went into a few others. I tried on various bras. I tried on a few dresses and I tried on and purchased a few things from the Nike store. Then I headed home, an hour and a half of a woman out shopping.

August 4, 2023, the art museum’s monthly party.

A friend, whom I adore and trust, was planning on attending for weeks. I was looking forward to seeing her at one of these events, maybe grabbing a bite beforehand. You all know how this turns out, she cancelled. All I can draw from the continued cancelations is that it must be me. I waive the white flag……solo Kandi is the only way to fly.

Regardless, I simply enjoyed a delightful evening! Two interactions out of many stood out. Surprisingly I got quite a few compliments on my outfit, worn specifically to hide my weight problem.

A lovely young lady smiled as she passed me. She then doubled back to tell me she loved my lip color!

An older woman, with a bunch of her friends, also headed past me and then she too doubled back, this time to ask who did my makeup. Me! She was so kind to have done that. I saw old friends. Had many that know me make sure they came over and said hello.

One woman asked if I worked all of the parties. I said I had been doing this for about seven years and I sleep at the museum and they wake me up once a month to do my job.

Great, casual, no agenda outings! And flying solo, no disappointments.

  1. Hi Kandi,
    It sounds like you had two wonderful relaxing days and I’m so happy for you. Your out fits are perfect for casual days out and about. And the out fits did their job. I could see no sign of a weight problem. You still look like your beautiful self.
    Doesn’t it make you feel so good when you receive compliments from other girls. When it happens, to me, it’s the icing on the cake for a wonderful day out.

    Trish ❤️🥰

  2. Kandi,
    Flying solo isn’t so bad , I admit I’m getting a little ****** off with friends letting me down , I’ve come to the conclusion it’s not so bad . Like you I will chat with anyone so I’m never alone for long if I choose not to be .

    Hiding the few extra pounds is a problem for many so a compliment may come as a surprise when we least expect it . In my normal day I’d never expect a compliment so when a lady stopped me in the street a few days ago to tell me I looked wonderful it took the wind out of my sails . I was wearing a skirt and Tshirt with some neat wedges with my mind on my supermarket shopping , I thanked her and told her she was very kind to comment .

    I do love your candy, pink striped blouse , it’s fresh and feminine .

    1. Thanks T! When I fly solo, I can control where I go, what I do and when I leave or stay. Sometimes it’s nice to simplify one’s life.

  3. Love that top skirt combo, but then again you are the put together queen for sure
    Yes I do think girls like us seem to get compliments more often than some
    I think there are those out there that know it’s not easy being who we are and know how good it feels
    Hugs to you

  4. Rachel,
    It’s possibly best not to question their motives and just take it at face value and thank them politely , I often tell them they look great as well . The fact that we don’t always get a compliment doesn’t mean we haven’t been noticed and not totally forgotten , on more than one occasion it’s taken several meetings before something is said .
