One of my favorite blouses is a flower pattern.

They can be so pretty.  :)  :)
Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I love flower prints.

On my first day full time, I will be wearing a flowery something. Because...why not?  :icon_flower:

So now that I am 19 months into transition I have to revise my statement above...

Florals are no-go.

Prints in general are no good. Prints make my long torso look bigger. In other words, sadly, florals don’t look cute on me. I have also noticed that women with a body type similar to mine also tend to avoid florals and prints of any kind and tend to stick to solid colors.

So no florals for me...at least not right now.

That makes me sad for you.

I fully understand what your saying. Yet one of the things I like about being a woman is the ability to have some fun with my clothing and not have people wonder about me.

I'm sorry to hear that, Sarah. :(

Floral prints are really hit and miss with me.
It took over 40 years to realise, and believe, that what I am NOT, is a mistake.

I generally don't like things that have too busy of a pattern, including paisley, although there are the rare exceptions.

I sometimes wear this in summer. I vainly wish I look like a teen, but I do not care what others think. No blame yet, but my wife and kids say it is too short. Now I have two fashion inspectors every morning when I am about to go out, my wife and daughter. Sometimes it helps.

Hardly ever miss.  They're very difficult to resist actually :)

Does it matter if the cloth is a light tint versus a darker shade?

Unfortunately, no. It’s all a big blob on me, even if it is a dark background.

Florals are supposed to be cute and elegant, but it just doesn’t look elegant on me.

I have to stick to dark solids. This is what pretty much every woman who has my build opts to do. I’ll give a celebrity example: Jennifer Garner (especially mom-body Jennifer Garner) has a build very similar to mine. If you look at what she wears, she stays away from patterns for the most part and sticks to neutrals and blues. There are other lesser-known people whose fashion choices I follow who are all tall and have that same body body type. I have lookbooks of ten of these women in Pinterest, so I have analyzed the heck out of this. And the answer is that most of them, most of the time elect to go with this fashion approach.

I love the flowers but I bought a cute femme polo style shirt that is in a simple, solid color.

The flowers will wait for a future purchase.  Perhaps a nice skirt with a many small flowers print?
