The last time my favorite color was pink was first grade. After that I abhorred that color till recently. I’m a tomboy and have always liked greens and blues. Pinks or reds were out of the question, though being a blonde red is a good color on me.
The other day in the shower I was thinking how I need to just let myself like the color pink. I can still be more tomboyish and like pink. It’s ok for me to want to be fem even if I don’t feel I am.
Even as a little girl wearing frilly dresses I didn’t feel girlie. I felt like I was playacting. I don’t wear makeup either except for lipgloss. I wore some makeup in junior high through high school, but seeing how it ages women makes me not want to cake it on.
How to feel womanly, like girlie things like pretty stationary, purses (yes, a big weakness of mine), but still be my jeans and fun t-shirt kind of woman? Any suggestions, or tips is appreciated. Any other ladies in the same boat?

I had exactly the same issue–wasn’t until I was about 30 that I started to embrace the color pink 🙂
…it can be such a challenge to find that comfy space where your exterior matches your interior feels (at least, I’ve always felt that way).

This is exactly it. I’ve always been more of a tomboy vs a girlie girl, though I want to be more fem. So glad you commented. 😁
