Ahh, Florida winter. This weather reminds me why I do like it here, despite my beating heart that lives in the West Village. We’re having a run of low-70-degree days, and that means I can actually wear some tights. And open the windows!
|Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.|
Today I decided to layer a favorite Karina dress – the Ruby – under an old faithful studded sweater (similar). The sweater is starting to look worn, and I will miss it when it goes. Just the right weight for Florida winter, and with personality. The bib necklace (sim) was found at a local consignment shop for about $10, and the tall fabric Donald J Pliner boots (sim) I bought in a NYC thrift.
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.
The guidelines to participate in the Visible Monday Link-Up are so simple:
- Whoever wants to can join in! Just compose a post that includes any outfit, accessory, piece of jewelry, hairstyle, cosmetic or other adornment that makes you feel more confident, alive and visible that day.

Wonderful article! We will be linking to this great content on our website. Keep up the great writing.
There is certainly a great deal to know about this issue. I love all of the points you ave made.
Major thanks for the post.Much thanks again. Much obliged. sex animation
What a great color on you Patti, and I Love your hair. Wish mine had an inkling of curl!
Thank you for hosting.
Fabulous sweater, and it looks great over the dress. That’s the beauty of Karina dresses – they are lightweight enough to layer over tights and under a jumper as well as being perfect for Summer. Wishing you a very happy 2017!
So beautiful in blue, Patti! Love the studded sweater, so chic!
73 F is my favorite temperature, I could live in it year-round. 🙂
Low 70s! geez. Today it was 6, again. But you look lovely. Showing off the fact that you don’t need a coat outside. yeah, bay-bee.
You always look so relaxed and happy within your skin Patti. Radiant too in the last photo with that darling smile. You are a thing of joy. Studs are forever, and so what if they’re not – we can still wear them.
Thanks for the link up party!
I think these studs looks so great on your sweater, the icing on the cake if you ask me. Have a great week. Love, Kirsten x
Thanks for the link up, Patti…have a wonderful week!
It’s been lovely to see lots of colour on such a dull day
Love the pretty sweater! I think studs are classic, at least in my book! 🙂
Happy New Year Patti! You look fabulous! I would love to be a snowbird! Some of my friends go south for the winter; check out my post and you’ll see why. I met up with my daughter Jean in Florida (January 2012). It was such a shock to come back to freezing cold Canada after spending warm, sunny days in your beautiful state. *sigh*
Enjoy the good life!
That truly is the ideal temperature. One of the reasons I liked living on Vancouver Island was because of their mild temperatures. It was never hot or cold, it was pretty much “just right” 80% of the time.
I like the sweater and the studs. In fact I’ve been thinking about adding some studs to a leather skirt.
I linked up a beautiful cat brooche that should appeal to you!
You can send some of that Florida winter to me in Michigan, any day. Happy Monday Patti!
My mom is in Florida now too and having cold evenings and nights. It is hard for us to sympathize with her while we’re here in Michigan. At least you get to open your windows! I can’t stand when we can’t do that and, for us, it’s the cold, not the heat, that stops us. Well at least it’s a good week for you to pull out all your cold weather gear!
Love this combo. So many beautiful details in the way things hang, fit, and layer. Not to mention the studded shoulder! Love it.
Oh I envy you… I would live to spend winter somewhere warm. I just got back to Finland, after several weeks away, and I’m fed up with snow already…
On a different note: studs never go out of style, and you rock!
This is such a pretty outfit. I love the relaxed yet feminine vibe. The colors are just yummy! Peace! Cheryl
Ah yes, Karina dresses are wardrobe faithfuls aren’t they?
Happy New Year, hope you are having a good start to 2017 x
I have no idea if studs are trendy or not, but they look great on your jumper!
That sweater is pretty fabulous and perfect with the dress! So jealous that you can open the windows and get some fresh air…yesterday it was 8 degrees so that’s not really an option for me…lol!
I love your hair so very much, dear patty.
Thank you for this lovely party.
a dress, a cardi, and boots make for an easy formula for looking stylish and you’ve got it nailed. thank you for hosting.
Beautiful! And I LOVE the studs!! Enjoy your weather! I’m looking forward to visiting my daughter (lives in South Beach) and then my sister (lives outside of Tampa) next month! It’s been 4 degrees last night, and 1 degree tonight!
I’m jealous of your warm weather. But at 70 degrees, I’d be taking OFF the tights! You look fabulous as always!
Love the studs!!
I still love studs on things Patti – who cares if they’re on trend or not, eh – yours are fab!
Sorry I haven’t linked up for ages, there have been so many great Sunday night TV shows on lately when your link up goes out that we’ve been watching them and then trying to get straight to bed… I’ve forgotten by the morning! #mybad
Great look, Patti! I can see why you love the sweater so much. It’s always hard for me to part with a favorite sweater; they are not easy to come by…
Enjoy the Florida winter!
Thanks for the link up & have a wonderful week!
Fabulous look! And love the studs on the shoulders too!
Love how you layered this dress, and I’m laughing my head off that you put on tights when its low 70’s, that when I bring out my shorts. Looking fabulous as always.
I really like the studded shoulders, Patti! I mean shoulders are having their day, right? So why not studded??
I love your studded sweater, I have a similar one and still wear it too =) and I envy your weather right now, we are having such a cold week, it’s snowing :(. Thanks for hosting the linkup dear Patti

I’m all about cute details and the studs on the shoulders are adorable as you are in them!!
Personally, I love the studded shoulder on your sweater… or on anything really! The more embellishment the better!
Happy New Year, and thank you as always for hosting, Patti!
