The Traveling Femme

The Traveling Femme

Just returning from a holiday has got me thinking about the idea of when you take that well deserved, much anticipated, and planned vacation, how about letting your femme side go on a holiday too.  Now, I do know that you take yourself with you wherever you go but embracing the opportunity to fulfill that desire to really dress up and “go out” when you are somewhere else, and not so close to home.

My SO and I have talked about this off and on, and I still have not pulled the trigger when we have gone away.  Now, I did under dress the entire time when we were away, and in the evening, the satin and lace chemise with matching panties was great for lounging and hopping into bed.  But, what about the idea of the blossom panties, bra, garter, stockings, then a dress, or skirt and top, and go out for a walk downtown, or head out for dinner and a night out on the town? 

Georgina’s latest blog about confidence really comes to mind here.  Now, I completely understand dressing up and going out in your own town.  As a professional where I live, I would never take the opportunity to dress up and go out due to societies views on such, and the impact that could have on my business.  I cannot see that turning out very favorable.  Although, Halloween is a great opportunity to have the experience under the guise of a costume.  Funny how that works when you think about it. 

Now that people are getting out and traveling again, and we have all been aching to venture out to bask in tropical climates, stick our toes in the sand, listen to the surf, and have cultural experiences, would you take your femme with you to enjoy the same?  Let’s pretend that you and your SO are heading to a tropical destination where you know there will be minimal interaction with other people while you are there.  You would get up, have coffee and breakfast in your hut on the water, you would then go for a walk on the beach, maybe read a bit, and then need to go out into the town or village.  You need to go to the market to pick up some things you need, or shop to see the local fare, then go out for lunch at a local restaurant.  You head back to the hut, lounge around, maybe a cocktail or two, and then get ready to go out for a nice dinner.  Then after that, head back to watch the sunset and enjoy the evening together.  Knowing all that, what would you pack in your suitcase? 

Knowing the opportunity that running into someone you know would be the same odds as winning the lottery, no one else knows you, and you know you want to, would you let your femme side free? Would you seize the opportunity to have that experience that you have been looking for all this time?  Would you take the opportunity to do make-up, nails, and your favorite outfit? The red satin wrap dress?  A short skirt and maybe the garter showing for a little risqué look?   Would you just under dress knowing that only you and your SO know your little secret?   If the opportunity presented itself, and you could dress up, what would you do? 

Again, as Georgina discovered, it took confidence to go out in public, and for others, the furthest they will get is their living room.   Put yourself in the hypothetical situation that I created. What would you do? How often would you do it?  Would it give you the confidence to do it more?  As mentioned, my girlfriend has brought it up many times, and in this last trip, there wasn’t the opportunity, (we were staying with friends, trust me, it would have been awkward), but I do like the idea of it. When I do, I will let you know.  Love to hear your thoughts.

Cheers to your traveling femme,

Sounds positively delicious and wickedly naughty! Please sign me up — I so want to do this I love panties and lacy veils…


Yes. I am more often skirted than not anyway in day-to-day living. But when we’re in Hawaii (which culturally is much more open on gender), I ALWAYS show more satin and skin and more flow and flounce. As a happy man, I don’t have a taste for passing or even make-up; but I do love soft, fluid clothes – on vacation or at home. Thanks XDress!


What a lovely thought WB! I’m with you all the way here, share all of your desires and concerns. It really is such a big step. My first “mini-outing” was in the twilight, and wasn’t any great distance or time at all, but just doing it broke through the big psychological barrier. Since then I’ve had the good fortune to meet a sympathetic lady, who is also searching for her real self-it was a completely random meeting, but we got talking and later on she said she has occasional lesbian feelings but is scared by them. I was underdressed with breast forms on, and told her so, and the conversation developed. She actually asked me if I would like to be her girlfriend for a couple of hours, just to see how she would react, as long as we were well away from places we might know people. So we went up to a retail park far enough away-we went separately as we were coming from different directions, but what an experience! I was fully dressed-shortish black skirt, blouse, heels, earrings and wig, over black lingerie, including my satin XDress panties. The most scary part was getting out of the car in skirt and heels in broad daylight, and taking the first few steps. It was a real “deep breath and just go” moment! We met in the car park, browsed a few shops and had a coffee. Just sensational! We’ve since been there again, and we’re enjoying it, but like you I couldn’t do it nearer to home, for me that would be too great a risk. The big advantage you have is your SO-having someone to literally hold your hand is worth more than you can imagine-trust her and yourself, and go for it! Life sometimes takes surprising turns, and they can be very positive. The difficult part is bypassing your inherent caution-but boy can it be worth it! Good luck on your travels! Georgina


Great blog WB! I am not passable but love my femme side! I think this would be a fun excursion and a wonderful way to express yourself! I love the thought of it and think I may try it. I do travel a lot for business and do wear skirts and leggings and blouses when I go out as there is minimal opportunity that I run into someone I know but and so this is not that far off that path. I think the skirts and garter would be great start and my SO would love it as she loves it when I wear it around the house. Of course, anything XDress puts out would be a wonderful thing to wear! Panties and undergarments are a must daily but I like the idea of spicing it up on vacation!
