Wonderful – lovely to hear that you are getting some acceptance and support.
As she said, you dressed in a stye that blended in with all the other women out and about, so she was comfortable being seen with you, just continue to develop that style and look at what she and others are wearing. I tend to wear trousers or jeggings when out with my partner most of the time, depending on the venue and activity we are doing, so we tend to complement each other. There is a time and a place for dresses and finery, and we dress accordingly,
Your partner deserves a big act of random kindness to show your appreciation
onward and upward ! (and post some photos !)
