I may not be very good at it, because I'm very distinctly female, but I love blurring the lines when it comes to gender roles, especially with my clothing. I've always had more of a tomboy personality and my clothes of choice have always been things of comfort... which for the longest time always translated into T shirts, jeans and boots/sandals. Not only does it feel comfortable, but it also happens to fit me better than most women's clothing, which I find pretty ironic seeing that I'm very busty and I've got a bit of a badonk.

Anyway, as I've grown up I've been surprised that I actually get a lot of crap for consistently wearing men's clothing. I mean, it's not as though there aren't periods when I don't want to feel feminine and get all dressed up in women's clothing. I'll do my hair, hell I'll even wear a dress. But, don't give me crap if I want to wear those comfortable male cargo shorts from American Eagle with those sexy engineer boots. I'll be ****** if I don't think I look more attractive when I wear the latter.

...Am I alone on thing? xD

I used to be pretty stubborn about wearing REALLY baggy men's clothes, but that was a long time ago. I actually enjoy looking pretty and feminine now, but only when other people can see me. When I'm at home, I kick back in big jogging pants and DH's shirts. LoL

I'm semi masculine. Short hair, no makeup (EVER) and I'm currently wearing sweatpants (in my defense, from Victoria's Secret..but they were a gift.. LOL) and a baggy old t-shirt. I don't own dresses, don't own any shoes aside from a pair of worn out skate shoes.. I've never been very feminine. As a child, I preferred jeans and tshirts over skirts and dresses any day. Makes me scared that I have a daughter.. LOL But I dress her girly and cute. She owns an entire dresser drawer full of dresses and skirts! I notice I put her in jeans and tshirts often too though I kind of hope she isn't girly. I'll be lost.

This is why I'm so glad I have two boys! I'm a little terrified about the idea of having a girl. I'm afraid I wouldn't know how to raise her.
