The Jaunts of JeffB!

Recommended Posts

I'm glad you had a good time at the casino with the guys, I have had similar experiences where guys in a bar or other such establishment just seem to look past one's clothing/shoes and just act normally. That's how it's supposed to be. I will freely admit to having zero interest in college basketball, but I must throw it in there that I will always be a Duke guy. It's where my dad got one of his degrees, and where I was born, so how could I be otherwise?

Duke, well i used to like you. Ha ha, just kidding.

I have No skin in this tourney, I knew Syracuse would bow out early. I kinda like the Washington huskies , they are what the orange would have looked like if they ever wised up and moved on from jim behiem. Hopkins was their coach in waiting but finally moved on.

Sorry, I digress.

It's always great to do normal things like sports with the guys, isn't it Jeff?  And the fact that the conversation never steered towards your attire is a bonus!

Well, we all have our crosses to bear. Heh!

With my squad (local team Villanova) having bowed out, I'm throwing my support behind North Carolina.

Oh, yeah, it was a fun experience, being just one of the guys yesterday. It was awesome!

Jaunt #492, 3/24/2019: With local squad Villanova having lost to Purdue Saturday night in the NCAA Tournament, my enthusiasm for March Madness was dimmed somewhat, so I decided to take advantage of some sunny and mild temps for an outing, garbed in a black faux leather jacket over a long sleeved magenta swing dress, black tights (more for style than warmth), Payless “Missy” wedge heeled ankle boots and a black handbag. I know I’ve said this more than a few times in the past in this thread, but damn, it feels so freaking GOOD to wear a dress, and to think that years ago, I felt self-conscious to go out in public in a dress, today, it’s as natural to me as breathing, and a hell of a lot more fun. Is it any wonder I’ve contemplated wearing dresses full time on my outings. At this point, it's no longer a question of if, but when.

But I digress. I motored over the Ben Franklin Bridge into South Jersey and my favorite multiplex, the Moorestown Mall where I saw Captain Marvel, admittedly, I didn’t have any allusions about enjoying this movie, but, it turned out that I did, it was a pretty good flick to say the least. Afterwards, I wandered into Sears where I treated myself to a couple of sleeveless, a-line dresses, tailor made for spring and summer, and a fashion freestyler can never have enough dresses for the season to come. By the time I left the mall, temps had reached into the low 60’s and felt warmer than I anticipated, so, after driving back into town, I swung by Rittenhouse Square, even though the trees were plenty bare, the weather was nice enough for scores of people to converge in the park like it was June or July to sit on the benches to relax and take in the scenery, just like I had, that is, when I wasn’t getting in some reading on my Amazon Kindle. I spent about an hour and a half in the park, having scores of people walk by without notice, though a twentysomething man nodded at me in passing, I guess he liked what he saw.

The nice weather I enjoyed makes me eager as heck to swap out my fall/winter stuff a week or two from now in favor of my spring/summer clothing, especially all those seasonal dresses I have, and the sandals, flat and heeled to go with them. I can’t wait. More to come....

JeffB,

Enjoyed reading your casino outing post. Perhaps more revelatory to me was something I did last year which so many in the United States take for granted. I walked into a Redners Market in Palmyra while visiting last year and walked out with a twelve pack of beer for the first time in Pennsylvania. Now that was a cool experience! Change comes slowly in the Keystone State but it does come eventually. Now if only they would eliminate the Pennsylvania Turnpike but that's probably too much to expect. Looks like I'll be in PA twice in 2019 to attend a high school reunion (40th) and to attend my nephew's wedding in October. I always bring back a case or two of Yeungling Lager. Again, well done on your outfits and journalling of your jaunts. HappyinHeels

With temps expected to crack 70 this coming Saturday, I decided today was as good a day as any to swap out my fall/winter clothing in favor of my spring/summer garb. Tonight, I spent a good couple of hours trying on everything and deciding what to keep and what to donate to Goodwill at my earliest opportunity, when all was said and done, much to my (pleasant) surprise, I found myself with 34 dresses in varying styles: tank, cami, short sleeved, sleeveless, above the knee, at the knee, below the knee, solid colors, patterns, florals while nearly a third are black. At the risk of sounding boastful, I think I absolutely slay in black dresses. I also have ten seasonal skirts, all but three of the gauzy, crepe midi length styles which I enjoy wearing, and I have my tank tops to pair with them along with my sandals, both flat (which I love) and heeled to wear with my clothes. But, with nearly three dozen dresses in my closet, I might be hard pressed to find time to wear skirts, but then, I did say I was slowly transitioning to wearing dresses full time on my outings, its only a matter of time. I had lots of fun trying on my stuff, and I can’t wait to wear same in public!

Jaunt #493, 3/30/2019: Ah, spring! Nothing like it after a long, cold winter, and this day, replete with sunshine and temps in the low 70’s was picture perfect for an outing, going out in a light denim jacket over a sleeveless black dress, the Payless “Geneva” loafers and a black satchel bag. As much as I love wearing dresses, there’s a certain....something about a black dress that I find particularly alluring, even one as causal in form and design as what I wore, and I certainly enjoyed being out in it. Regarding the shoes, as I’ve said numerous times in this thread, since I’ve embraced the life of a fashion freestyler, it’s no longer important to me to wear heels on my outings, if anything, flats worked better with my dress than heels, looked better too for a purely casual setting for my destination, that being the King of Prussia Mall.

It was a little after eleven when I arrived at the mall, parked in the garage and strolled in. Right away, I noticed there were more kids than usual in the place, no doubt because the Easter Rabbit was in residence, but that was okay, my first stop was in a watch repair shop to have the battery replaced in my watch, while there, the saleslady grinned and said I looked nice, I smiled back and thanked her. In the food court, I got a couple of odd looks, but nothing more as I had a slice of sausage pizza with a bottle of water, both of which went down good. My casual wanderings after lunch took me to Lolli & Pops, a favorite stop because it features all manner of sweets, and I treat myself to a small bag of mini gummi bears which are tasty, while I filled my bag, one of the staff said she liked my earrings (just ordered from Sears), lots of compliments I’ve been getting lately, not bad, guess that means I’m doing something right. With warm weather having established itself, comfy seating was set up outside a restaurant and I took advantage of it for over half an hour to relax and read the newspaper.

Now, there were purchases to be made as well, namely a couple of nice, casual dresses from H & M for $17.99 apiece. I’ll be sure to show them off in the weeks to come as spring eventually changes over to summer. I tell you, the more I wear dresses, the more I enjoy them, they feel so natural to me, and I feel supremely comfortable in them, and I have a lot of them to wear this season. More to come....

JeffB,

Glad to hear that you experienced some spring like weather. Not here in WNY. Last night we had rain to snow with 3" on the ground this morning. It was boot wearing weather, today with off and on snow showers and temps only in the low 30's. More snow over night with slippery roads for the Monday morning work commute. Hopefully spring will make an appearance here soon.

BTW, nice look on your jaunt on Saturday.

Happy Heeling,

bluejay

I took down all my snow fences and the seven-day outlook calls for overnight temperatures to stay above freezing so that is good news for warming up the soil. I've been busy around the yard ahead of our trip Out West next week. We'll visit my wife's family in northwestern Mexico and I'll do some exploring after that. Should be back around 1st May. It'll be sandal weather in Mexico and California and all the way home as well. My feet will be happy then :fine: HinH

Well, Old Man Winter is playing an April Fool's joke on the region as temps today will struggle to reach 50 but will feel colder. But, it's only a one day deal. I hope.

Jaunt #494, 4/7/2019: Ah, spring, part two! Sunshine and warm weather arrived on Saturday, but I had a previous engagement, so I had to wait until Sunday to go on an outing. With temps tickling 70, I headed out in a black tank top, a black and white print midiskirt, the Payless “Trance” wedge heeled sandals and a black hobo bag. I’m quite happy warm weather is here so I can sport tanks, and trot out all my sandals, both flat and heeled to wear, and that makes me quite excited, oh yeah, I had a new necklace that I bought from Burlington Coat Factory that matched well with the tank, making sure my accessories coordinated with my outfit is important as it completed the dressy nature of my ensemble.

As is usually the case on Sunday when I dress up, I motored over into South Jersey and my favorite multiplex at Moorestown Mall to catch a movie, my choice being Shazam!, a fun filled and rollicking superhero movie I had been interested in watching ever since I saw the trailer some time ago, and it definitely delivered the goods. After the movie, nature called, so I headed to the men’s room where I found nearly a full house as men young and old were taking care of business, I did get a couple of odd looks, but I ignored them as I casually went into a stall and emptied the ol’ bladder. Another kid, maybe seven or eight looked at me in confusion at the sinks as we both washed our hands (proper hygiene, after all), I glanced at the kid and said “Hi”, but got no response as he quickly left. I think I spooked him, I found that mildly amusing. I swung by Sears, and while I didn’t see anything particularly interesting in the way of clothing, I did buy a nice women’s watch that was on sale, and who doesn’t love a sale?

Driving back into Philly, I swung by my usual haunt at Rittenhouse Square Park, because of the nice weather, the park was absolutely packed with people, but I did find an empty bench where I relaxed and got in some reading on my Kindle for about an hour and a half. Most enjoyable, just like my outing as I had a good time. With spring here and summer to come, I expect to have more fun adventures in nice weather. More to come....

Jaunt #495, 4/13/2019: I’m sure I’ve said this on more than a few occasions, but every time I go out on an outing, I see it as an experiment in terms of what I can do and how far I feel I can push the envelope when it comes to fashion freestyling, and this trip was no different. After some early morning showers, the forecast called for brightening skies and temps close to 70, so I headed out in a denim jacket over a black floral print camidress from Old Navy, the Payless “Geneva” loafers and a hobo bag.

As you can see in the photos below, while the dress was black, the floral prints stood out considerably, leading me to wonder if I’d draw attention as there was a good crowd at shortly before noon when I arrived, but, as it turned out, that was a silly thing to wonder about because no one paid me any mind. I know, big shock. I wandered into a crowded food court without attracting so much as a glance or turned head, something else I’ve said here before too. An uneventful lunch was was followed by an uneventful stroll to Lolli & Pops, that purveyor of all things sweet where I treated myself to some mini gummi bears, however, at the counter, the young lady who waited on me said she liked my dress, I grinned and thanked her before paying for my treats and leaving the store. More wandering through the mall took me to Sur La Table where I restocked on sea salt and peppercorns for my grinders at home, at the Apple Store, I bought a twenty-five dollar card for the App Store to add funds to my account, while walking past Bath & Body Works, an employee standing outside the store waved at and said she loved my dress, I waved back and thanked her in passing.

My final stop of the day at the mall which had become rather crowded as was always the case there, was to Primark where I bought a nice seasonal dress and four items which I'll discuss in depth on a future outing. As for this one, it was uneventful and, as always, I had a good time. In fact, I've pretty much arrived to the conclusion that it would be odd as hell if I don't wear a skirt or dress at KOP, few notice, fewer care, and that's good enough for me. More to come....

Jaunt #496, 4/22/2019: If there was ever a day to dress up and look my best, it’s Easter Sunday, with abundant sunshine and warm temps, I went ahead and did that, sporting a sleeveless black crepe blouse, a black and white print chiffon skirt, a black handbag and new shoes from Payless, the “Ryan” wedge heeled sandals in black. About the shoes, on Saturday, it had rained cats and dogs that morning and was cloudy and chilly afterwards, hardly ideal conditions for a jaunt, so I just wandered downtown to goof off for awhile. With Payless having their going out of business sale, I went in to see what if anything they had that might pique my interest, as t turned out, I found the “Ryan” sandals which I thought would look good on me, and, discounted to $17.99, they were worth investing in. The shoes, with near four inch heels, were comfortable and easy to wear and I figured they’d look good with either skirts or dresses.

But, I digress. Driving into town today, it only took twenty minutes to find a spot to park, a relatively brief period of time compared to how long it usually takes on a Sunday. As usual, Rittenhouse Square Park, my destination was packed, as predicted, there was goodly number of people, male and female, young and old, that were dressed up for the holiday, heck, there was even an Easter egg hunt being held on the grassy areas for the little ones, something I thought was cool. After finding an empty bench, I sat down and, before breaking out my Kindle for some reading, I reached for my phone instead to snap a selfie or two, right after I had, a couple of fortysomething women, dressed to the nines came my way, one of them, sported a snazzy, wide brimmed hat, form fitting floral print minidress and killer black patent platform pumps that caught my eye, so I waved to her and said “Love your shoes”. She grinned back and said I looked beautiful, she then added that she had seen me talking selfies and asked if she could snap a picture with my phone, I nodded and she had, before leaving with her friend, she said I knew how to dress up for Easter, I said likewise to her and she giggled before departing.

Not bad, eh? In all the times I’ve been out and about on my little adventures, I’ve never been called beautiful, and I could tell that woman was sincere with her compliment, clearly she liked what she saw and told me so, validation that I did my work to look the very best I could, something I strive for each and every time. Otherwise, my outing was uneventful as I spent little over two hours between reading in the park as scores of people walked past without giving me a glance and going to nearby Barnes & Noble for a refreshing cup of iced tea before calling it a day and heading back home to watch the Phillies in action in Colorado. A good outing made even better thanks to the encounter I had with that woman with the killer pumps. More to come....

Congrats.  Did you ever go to Parc in Rittenhouse Square?  Sunday brunches are reasonably priced (you might need a reservation).  Safe spot for freestyling for sure.

Jaunt #497, 4/272019: The calendar may say spring, but there have been days when it’s been just a tad iffy. After a line of strong, fast moving thunderstorms blew through the region early Friday night, it was sunny but brisk the very next day, but that didn’t stop me from going on an outing, and breaking in yet another new pair of shoes to boot, the outfit of choice was a denim jacket over a mid-length, print camidress from Old Navy, Trotters “Liz” woven leather slip-ons in black and a black satchel bag. As part of my ongoing evolution as a fashion freestyler, I no longer need to wear heels all the time, in fact, I’ve come to love flats, and I’ve had my eye on these shoes for quite some time, when I found them on Amazon for just under fifty bucks, down from their usual $99.99, I jumped on that with both feet and ordered a pair. As you can see below, the shoes are quite stylish with the woven design while they looked good and were comfortable. As for the dress, similar in style to the one I wore a couple of weeks ago, it was fun and easy to wear, and it looked good on me to boot, and was what mattered most.

My destination for the day was the King of Prussia Mall. Once upon a time, I was more than a bit nervous about wearing heels hidden under long jeans, now I’m strolling about the place in dresses without a worry in the world, and that’s plenty darn cool if I do say so myself, all part of that aforementioned evolution. Despite the colorful pattern of my dress, hoop earrings and lipstick, no one, as usual, paid me any attention as I wandered about. After chatting with a couple of guys in the comic book shop for a solid ten minutes about the evils of revealing spoilers from Avengers: Endgame which I haven’t seen yet, it was off to the food court for lunch where I had a salad with a bottle of water, gotta continue eating healthy so I’ll stay slim and look sharp in the skirts and dresses I wear. After lunch, I was relaxing just outside Lord & Taylor when a woman who looked to be in her early 60’s gave me a long look, then she grinned and said I looked lovely, adding that she wished people dressed up more, and that women could take lessons from me. I chuckled and thanked her for the compliment. Ain’t that ironic? Someone suggesting women could take lessons from a MAN on how to dress like a WOMAN. Guess I must’ve doing something right.

Of course I did more shopping, no way I couldn’t, at Old Navy, I bought another mid-length camidress along with a thin, collarless shell, both of which I can pair up for a cute and stylish outfit, all for just a hair over forty bucks. Gotta love a sale. All told, I spent my usual four hours at the mall, and, as usual, it was fun, and I love the heck out of the experience. More to come....

Nice look JeffB. I have those same shoes  in a black and white check pattern, from Trotters. They are very comfy and really don't look overly feminine.

Jaunt #487, 2/23/2019: Sometimes, curiosity has led to outings where I wanted to go somewhere and do something I've never done before, so I decided to don women's clothing and satisfy that curiosity. Yesterday, I went to Parx Casino, garbed in my black wool coat over a red mockneck, a 16 inch dark gray zippered denim miniskirt from Primark, black tights, the Payless "Terri" ankle boots in black and a black handbag. Now, I'm sure you're wondering about what led me to Parx, a place I've visited numerous times in the past, well, there was something new there....legal sports betting. Now, I'm no degenerate gambler, heck, I only visit slots parlors four or five times a year, but after all the hullabaloo about legal betting having finally arrived in Pennsylvania, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and what better way to do that than while on a jaunt?

As I've said before, no one pays any attention to me in women's wear while in the casino, and this was no different. The sportsbook at Parx was a pretty cool place with a counter manned by people with screens behind them where you could place your wagers on numerous games, both professional and college along with a seating area where you can watch the games you wager on, along with that, there were also numerous self serve betting kiosks situated throughout the casino where you could place your own bets. That was where I placed my wager, putting ten bucks down on the hometown NBA 76ers against Portland, then I sat down and watched said hometown team get bullied from the opening tip to the final buzzer in a 15 point loss to the Trailblazers. Oh, well, them's the breaks. Still, it was pretty neat in itself, however, I don't see myself betting on games regularly, if at all, thankfully, that's never been my thing, but, I might, heavy emphasis on "might" return next month before March Madness (a.k.a. the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament) begins to put a few bucks down on whatever team I think will win it all.

With my brief dalliance with betting over, I headed back into town and parked a couple of blocks from Rittenhouse Square to spend some quality time in center city. It was fairly nippy and I don't think I saw so much as one female wearing skirts the whole time I was there, it was all jeans, pants and leggings, I get it, it wasn't exactly the sort of weather tailor made for exposing one's legs, even legs encased in tights as was the case with me, so I guess I was the odd duck in the pond. Heh! Still, it was lots of fun to wear a short skirt on a cold day, but I was perfectly warm and comfortable, and that was more than good enough for me. But, I can't wait for spring to arrive so I can shed all this winter wear. More to come....

Interesting casino stories!  Vegas is the first place where I explored heeling beyond the security of my own home.  I must have visited more than two dozen casinos while heeling in Vegas, as well as many restaurants.  Never heeled during the day.  Just night, usually in blue jeans and a pair of medium-heeled pewter sandals.

As a registered statistician, however, I never tried to "beat the tables" or the house.  Rather, I concentrated on playing perfect video poker, thereby minimizing my losses to less than $5 per hour.  Every once in a while I'd win considerably more than I was playing, quit, and pocket my winnings.  But gambling is by and large a steady trickle of one's wealth down the drain...

In Europe I'd sometimes wear an ankle skirt with flat sandals, but I don't recall ever pairing skits and heels in public.

I was in Laughlin, NV last week with the wife..  I ain't much of a gambler - unlike my wife who is currently in Vegas with a friend - geezzz.  Tried three card poker, never played it before.  Still lost $200 bucks but it took a bit more than two hours to finish it off.  Like you Jeff, I don't expect to break the bank in Monte Carlo, but had an OK time nonetheless.  And even wearing my "lucky" heeled slip on sandals did not help...  Oh the humanity....  ha ha....  But I did enjoy being out in heels with the wife.  Even the dealer noticed my shoes and said that she liked them.   Take care all...   sf

SF: Sounds like you had a good time. And, at the end of the day, that's the ultimate goal.

Jaunt #498, 5/18/2019: Lucky me, it was a Saturday, and it didn’t rain, a constant of sorts the last couple of weeks. With sunshine and warm weather, I headed to the King of Prussia Mall in a black and white stripped jersey dress from H & M, the Payless “Geneva” loafers and a black quilted hobo bag. I felt like going casual, and that dress was tailor made for that purpose, and it was short enough to put my legs on display, something I enjoy when the mood strikes. Also, while it was warm enough for sandals, I liked the loafers with the dress more, I just thought that made for a better pairing. The mall was quiet when I arrived shortly after eleven, as is always the case, no one paid me any attention as I wandered about, and that’s fine by me as I sought to blend in with my surroundings.

At the comic book shop, I spent a good ten minutes chatting with the store’s staff about Avengers: Endgame which I had seen last Sunday and enjoyed like crazy (relax, I won’t reveal any spoilers in case anyone here hadn’t seen it yet), then went to Dick’s Sporting Goods store where I bought a rear view mirror and a water bottle for my bike as it’s warm enough now to get in some riding on a regular basis, something I’m looking forward to greatly. From there, it was off to the food court for lunch where I had a special experience, that being a pizza flavor I never had before, chicken bacon ranch, and man, was that ever GOOD! Not to worry, I’m still fully loyal to my diet regimen and only had that one slice which I washed down with a bottle of water, a few years ago, I would’ve had two, perhaps three slices, but I’m more careful about my caloric intake these days. Over the course of my post lunch wandering, I was looking over dresses at Old Navy when a woman in her fifties said to me that she liked the necklace I wore, adding that it suited my complexion, pleasantly surprised, I grinned and thanked her, that was a very nice compliment, especially since my complexion wasn’t a concern when I bought the necklace, I just liked how it looked on me. Heh!

By the by, I did buy a dress from Old Navy, followed by another from Primark. The more I wear dresses, the more I like them, the more I realize they suit who I am as a freestyler. I’ve said that I’m working up to the time when I’ll be all dresses all the time on my outings, but, I’m not there yet as I still enjoy wearing skirts, after all, they replaced pants and jeans which I haven’t worn on my adventures since mid 2013, and I don’t miss them at all. And, with warm weather in place, I’ll have lots of dresses to show off for everyone. More to come....
