I think you cannot go wrong wearing black and white. It’s always chic, flattering, and covers the dirt. Today I am wearing my favorite maxi skirt, a vintage 70’s treasure from Vix’s shop.

I’ve worn this skirt with purple (here) and other tops, but I really appreciate the look of a black-and-white top (similar). Everything works together and flows, and makes me happy. I added a thrifted pearl and tassel necklace (sim) and black booties (sim). I love the quiet black and white scarf (sim) thrown over the shoulders.

Autumn is the best time to dress up. Dress can be said to be “queen” dress, it is also “dignified and elegant” name. It is unpredictable and has many variants, can be used as a suitable object to shape the digital proportion. According to design needs, it can create different surfaces and intermediate spaces. It does not require too much elastic material, because the “one-piece” dress worn corresponds to the correct “full body” dress. No matter what your style is, you will always find clothes on the street windows.
I love the top and skirt together! Can’t ever go wrong with the classic white and black look!

I love black and white and your outfit is lovely. Especially the Greek key on the skirt – very unusual.
I wish my hair would go silver at the back; its only at the front and the back is still grey…..
Neat outfit! That skirt is fabulous. I am actually thinking about having my maxi skirts shortened. But can’t quite get myself to do it yet.
Have a great week!
I found your blog through the comment section of “That’s Not My Age”! I think I commented below you. Anyway, thank you for adding to my procrastination of writing a blog post today because now I’m going to binge read your posts!
I’m 60 and also blog about being “mature” blah, blah, blah. It’s nice to meet you! BTW, I’m so jealous of your hair!!!!
I LOVE that skirt – Kinky Melon has the best vintage stock around! A great look, you look so elegant and classy! xxx
Sensational in black and white! I’m excited for the progress of your hair transition. It only adds to your beauty and style!
Great minds think alike Patti, I’m in black and white this week as well! That tassel necklace yo have on is fantastic!
Very classy. Black and white is always good! x
love your whole look! Beautiful look!
Truly beautiful, feminine ensemble, Patti! Your hair looks wonderful, such a natural seamless transition. I need to go thrifting ASAP – your necklace is a beauty! I might find something too! 🙂
Can’t go wrong with black and white Patti, great look! Thank you for hosting.
So beautiful! Love your skirt! =)

Patti! You are looking fabulous!! Your outfit is perfect according to me. 🙂 I’m so happy to be able to be a part of Visible Monday again. Thank you as always.
Love that skirt!!
Another great example of second-hand chic! Thanks for hosting 🙂
You look dramatic in black and white! A classic look! LOVE your hair Patti!
Great look Patti
Thank you for hosting
Your hair is transitioning so well!
The back of that blouse is very cool.
The maxi was a great purchase.
I LOVE the Greek key pattern, Patti – makes such an unusual pattern at the hem of your maxi!
Thank you for hosting and for linking up with #iwillwearwhatilike!
ooo, Silver Hair is cool. Goes great with B&W too. I like that peek-a-boo white pleat in the back of the black blouse. Nice surprise. Tres elegante.
Oh Patti, if I had found that skirt before you did, you wouldn’t be wearing it in your post! I would have snagged it in a heartbeat. Love 70s maxi skirts. They come in so many very cool prints and that one is particularly exceptional. And black and white as a combo is one of my favorites, as it is a great backdrop for adding bright colors. Love how the scarf and the tassel necklace look paired with the outfit too.
Beautiful and elegant, Patti. Love this look.
Loving your maxi skirt, great styling Patti ! Kisses

Hi Patti! I love the pattern on the skirt, and it looks quite glamorous. Styling with the flowing scarf over your shoulder is a lovely touch as well. I always look at your choices below, and noticed no wine glass, mm could it be because it is before 12 am?
🙂 Love the classic look with the Patti touch. 🙂
Love the detail and silhouette of this skirt. Beautiful!

You’re right, the simplicity of black mixed with black and a little white is so striking and ever so classy. Still loving this incredible skirt, but this is my favorite version so far.

It’s a a classic pattern, and the skirt would look perfect with many different tops. I don’t know what material it is, but I could imagine it on the beach on a hot day, too.
Classic B&W. It takes the guess work out of guessing. It’s always Right 🙂
Fabulous skirt! I love this whole look.
