A Dress For All Seasons: Visible Monday

I love to wear dresses. One simple decision and boom – you’re about 95% dressed. Living in a warm climate, dresses are cool – and can be layered later in the year with tights and jackets. This lovely vintage 90’s dress was found at Citizen Rosebud, and it’s been a good friend throughout all the Florida seasons.

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.

Always room in my closet for a flowy dress:

 


 
I added platform sandals (similar) and a vintage 1960’s bib necklace (sim). This is my first Vis Monday picture taken at our new apartment. The porch is lovely and the view is magnificent, but I had no idea until I looked at this pic that there are about ten thousand parking meters  : >

Love this easy dress, the mini floral print and the ankle-grazing length.

The ocean breeze is great for curly hair. You curlies knew that already, didn’t you?

  1. I LOVE this dress, Patti. And you look beautiful in it. The black and white windswept photo is very creative. Is this from your balcony? Right across from the sea? Happy 1st of September. xx

  2. What a gorgeous dress! And your balcony is a great back drop, Patti.
    You and I both love dresses (I love jumpsuits for the same reason too). Please join my party – it’s about wearing vintage this time! You dressed up just right. 🙂

  3. I love this dress on you, perfectly relaxed and fabulous! Loving the look of your new pad, too. Hope you’ll all moved in and chilled now! xxx

  4. Me too Patti! Totally get where you’re coming from about the simplicity of a dress & this tiny floral print is a beauty. I can see it with boots too, when the weather cools down obvs 😉

  5. I too love wearing dresses. They are so versatile. Love this Fall transitional look, Patti and how that lovely dress feels bohemian.

  6. Thanks so much for the link-up, Patti! I love your dress and bib necklace – it took me a while to figure out the floppy (?) cat sculpture at your feet, ha ha! Looks like you have a wonderful view – congrats on the new place!

  7. The simplicity factor was the #1 reason that started my dress obsession years back. I used to say $25 and boom, you have a whole outfit! Love these dresses and the one you’re wearing!

  8. I couldn’t agree with you more, Patti, dresses are god’s gift to busy and/or indecisive women. Wait, to women in general just because. And may I say how refreshing that balcony wall of yours is?? What a lovely shade of green. Lovely too your dress. It’s Laura Ashley-esque without being Laura Ingalls xoxo

  9. Congrats on your new apartment, Patti! Forget about the parking meters, that view looks amazing!!!

    I am so with you when it comes to wearing dresses. They have really become my uniform of choice during these summer months. I’m loving yours! The pretty print with the vintage necklace looks fabulous with your coloring! Love!

    Have a wonderful week!

  10. Oooh, your flowy dress, so cool and pretty. I didn’t even notice the parking meters – I was so taken with the view in general. Congratulations on your move!

  11. Dresses are the new whatever! You look so relaxed and cool in your flowy maxi dress. ooo, did I sound like an advert for pads?! Flowing, no. Easy, breezy, summery dress with really cool jewels to match. phew.

  12. Patti, congrats on your new digs. And I love that lightweight flowy floral print dress. Reminds me of day dresses from the 1930s. Very feminine and definitely perfect for Florida heat!

  13. Hooray! You’ve made it through to the other side of the move.

    What a view beyond those parking meters!

    You look remarkably calm and relaxed for someone that has just moved : )

    bisous

  14. Patti, this dress is so marvelous! I had so many dresses like this in the 90’s that I wish I still had! Although, they would probably be about 4 sizes too small for me now! Ha! I am itching for a thrift store adventure soon to find some cute retro pieces! You are radiant! And I think the lines/angles created by all the parking meters are kind of cool!

  15. You are so right about the ease of getting dress when opting for a dress. I’ve had getting a flowy floral print dress on my wish list for a while now and yours is just what I seek. You look fabulous in a wonderfully nostalgic and romantic way. Thanks for hosting.

  16. Couldn’t agree more, wearing a dress is the perfect solution for looking put together with little to no effort. Absolutely love this vintage find!

  17. I hope it’s ok to post a beauty post rather than fashion Patti. Another fabulous dress your wearing again.The photo with the wind blowing is stunning. X
