In just under a week, I will be in a city far from home and spending at least a day (if my wife if still willing) en femme in public. I can't even begin to describe how excited and nervous this is making me. I keep running through my closet trying to decide what to wear. Should I wear pants and heels? A dress? Tights or hose? How should I do my hair? On top of all that, I'm trying to pack for a week in a small carry-on, and while that's not usually a problem, I have to bring at least one extra pair of shoes, which takes up a bit of space. Right now I'm leaning towards a nice pair of brown herringbone pants with heels, and a nice pink-striped oxford shirt. Fairly professional looking, would fit in almost anywhere in the daytime. If I go out at night, I'd consider a dress, but I'm thinking that on a brisk fall day in New England, the average woman is probably in pants. Of course, over the next four days before I pack, I'm sure I'll change my mind at least a dozen times!
