I was supposed to see my friend Alison for another girlfriend noontime meeting. But we couldn’t make it work, so I decided to go it alone.
I decided to go to a restaurant/bar for the very first time and enjoy a drink and some food. This would be another step down the path for me. Because of stories by other ladies on this blog site I knew this should not be a big issue.
I wore a flowered skirt, dark hose, patterned sweater and red running shoes.
I first dropped by the bank to get cash and then shopped to buy some stick on nails and check out some dresses. None of the nails or dresses really got me excited.
I parked downtown and went for a walk through the park beside the bay, and then up Main Street. One of the crosswalks is painted in the rainbow colours so I “proudly” crossed, purse over my shoulder. I felt so comfortable all the time, and of the hundreds and hundreds of people that were enjoying the day, I was the only person wearing a skirt or dress. I was happy.
I casually walked the street looking for a place to eat. I eventually went into a British styled pub/restaurant. The greeter was very friendly and escorted me to a table. The place had a number of patrons, and none of them took any real notice of me. I had a glass of white wine and a salad. After eating I reapplied lipstick, right at my table.
The female bartender/server and I had conversations and it was just girl talk; WOW. See the picture of Baylee and me.
I was feeling so comfortable just being me, a woman out for a pleasant day.
But, I did bring another pair of shoes in case I wanted a little different feeling. In the car I changed into my 3” heels, and wearing the exact same clothes I went for another walk.
After a few steps my whole being changed; I became a beautiful woman, I felt very feminine and just a little sexy. I was shocked at how the shoes I wore completely changed my viewpoint about myself.
I was now definitely overdressed for an afternoon walk in the park. The two pictures show “plain” me with the running shoes, and “the hotty” with the heels, lol.
