Quite The Weekend

Sweater –  29th & Madison – Similar
Tank – Calvin Klein – Similar
Skirt – American Apparel – Similar
Shoes – Guess – Similar
Necklace – Handmade in Paso Robles, CA – Similar
Bracelet – Handmade in Paso Robles, CA – Similar
Belt – Target – Similar

My wife, Jules, thought it would make for a funny post if I wrote about the weekend we had when I wore this outfit.  But first, a bit about the outfit itself.  With this outfit, I began with the necklace.  It is a piece that I have owned for possibly about ten years but have sadly only worn it maybe a couple of times.


I really like it actually.  I love the looks, but apparently it is made of coral, which is bad in its role in promoting environmental damage, and had I known, I would not have purchased it.  Being as I already own it, there is no reason really for me to avoid wearing it.  Thus I searched through my closet and came up with this ensemble to specifically try and show off the necklace.  Overall, I think that it worked pretty well.  I think I like it better without the sweater, which is kind of funny, considering my abnormal insecurities about my totally normal arms!

Anywho … the day before I wore this Jules and I had been invited by our boss to a local ranch for a shoot off.  I figured that it would be a good time to present more male.  Most of my life I do not spend presenting as a woman, but I also don’t exactly present as male either.  Generally, I give a mixed presentation, like dressing male but having brightly painted nails.  But for this event, I decided to remove my polish and dress all male, which is kind of rare.

Went to the event and had a great time.  One part of it was when Jules and I got to try and shoot at the clay pigeons they were throwing.  She totally beat me, hitting 19 out of 25 while I hit a lowly 8!  The thing I thought was funny about it was that I was kind of bummed with myself for not presenting more male.  I wore khaki shorts with a t-shirt and a round brimmed Tilli hat.  Most everyone else was in jeans, work boots, and t-shirts they obviously had been working in all day.  So I was kind of bummed because I could have pulled that off so much better!

The day after our cowboy ranch shoot off, I was dressed in this outfit and off to get gel put back onto my nails.  I had a day off, enjoyed it, and then wanted it back!  While driving home from the salon, Jules remarked that it was such a fun weekend.  The day before we got to go shoot our guns and meet new people, the next we got to go get our nails done, and two days later we would be back together with our boss, shooting dove on his farmland, with my nails painted like this:


Life is kind of funny!

Love yourself.

Enjoy your own quirkiness!

Hi, I’m Nadine Spirit and I have been a lifelong gender non-conformer. I have always understood that I am a bit different than most but it was not until sometime in my thirties that I came to understand that I am transgender. While I spend most of my time presenting as a male I am always presenting in a gender non-conforming manner. 

I started my blog, Unordinary Style, with the idea of being able to show a stylish side to those who identify as transgender. Since that time my blog has evolved into showing my personal style, discussing a wide variety of transgender topics, as well as posts about my personal life. My personal style continues to evolve as I attempt to continually push myself to pick stuff off of the racks, take it into the dressing room, and try on as much as I can. I am a firm believer in ignoring tag sizes, never paying retail prices, and due to a terrific allergy – that nickel should never be in any jewelry!

Insomniac Sale Picks: Pajama Sets With Shorts

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Amy requested a few picks for pajama sets with shorts (instead of long pants), so here we go:

hue pajamas

Hue Sleepwear Boxer Pajama Set – was $54, now $32.99 – $36.99

This set looks so perfect for summer nights – a v-necked cotton blend tee with 100% cotton shorts. Those are tiny flamingos on the boxers, but you can also get this set with a yellow tee and flip-flop print shorts. Available in sizes S – XL. Size availability varies by color. This set is either solid or print all over, but is cotton and includes a v-neck top in sizes M – 5X.

woven pajamas

Nordstrom Woven Short Pajamas – was $54, now $36.18

I prefer knits myself, but know that wovens are more traditional for PJs. Interestingly, these are rayon, not cotton so they’ll still breathe well but drape instead of wrinkling. Available in this navy dot print as well as a black and white floral in sizes XS – XL. Pink and white stripes available in XL. If you prefer woven cotton, this CK set is adorable. This set has a short-sleeved top, but is also woven and available in sizes M – 5X.

knit shorts pajamas

Charter Club Henley Top and Boxer Shorts Set – was $38, now $18.24
with code REDHOT

Bizarrely, this set comes in two prints – flip-flops as shown above and flamingos. Perhaps all the PJ designers are in conspiracy. In any case, this set is all knit and although they call the top a henley, it’s only got two buttons toward the neckline. 100% cotton and gets high marks from most reviewers. Available in two prints in sizes XS – XXL.

plus size pajama set

Carole Hochman Cotton Knit Bermuda Pajamas – was $66, now $44.22

In case you like shorts but prefer them slightly longer, this set includes a short-sleeved knit top and Bermuda-length shorts. It’s 100% cotton and available in this rose print as well as birdcages, vines, or bikes in sizes 1X – 3X. Size availability varies by print. Also in sizes S – XL.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for pajama sets with shorts:

  1. Nordstrom – Shorts sets that include tops with spaghetti straps through long sleeves. Petite and plus sizes available in some styles.
  2. Kohl’s – Lots of options, including this adorable swing tank set. Petite and plus sizes available in some styles.
  3. JCPenney – 24 short sets, from cute to sexy.
