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 : >

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
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. 🙂
Pretty dress. I am a fan of dresses, too, especially for the heat. And I love the lighting effect on that last photo: art.
Patti, this dress is SO pretty on you, and the necklace is perfect. How nice that it was purchased from Bella! Hope you are settling into your new home without any issues.
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
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 😉
You look so great! I love dresses too, because of that reason!
Have a great day!
I too love wearing dresses. They are so versatile. Love this Fall transitional look, Patti and how that lovely dress feels bohemian.
I’m loving the vintage dress! Dresses are definitely great for beating the summer heat!

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!
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!
Great post lady! Happy Monday 🙂
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
That dress is fabulous! It looks like something I would love to wear! Peace! Cheryl
Oh you look just lovely! And I can only guess this beautiful house from your new home. All the best and enjoy. Kirsten xx
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!
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!
Wow…that view! You must share more photos of your new apt!!!
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.
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!
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 : )
Gorgeous dress, very summery.
Oh, I am loving this dress and your bib necklace with it! I can so picture it with booties this fall.
Patti, I love the length of the dress and delicate florals. They are showing up more and more in fall fashion, too. Just a quick change out to some boots or booties and your good to go! Love the necklace ( want a closer look 🙂
Have a wonderful week
I saw this dress on you on Instagram and I loved it and now I love it even more after seeing all of it! It will look really cool with your Doc’s (if I recall you do have Doc’s right?) too.
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!
Beautiful dress, I love the neckline. Thanks for hosting, hope you have a great week 🙂
Looking gorgeous in this flowy print dress. Love your hair blowing in the breeze.
I wear dresses for the same reason, they are just so easy and effortlessly chic!
Thank you for hosting and hope you are having a fab week!
Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.
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.
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!
Such a pretty dress, both cut and floral pattern.
Dresses are an easy way to get dressed! Great dress & fabulous necklace !
Thanks for the link up & have a great week!
You always look so lovely in a flowy dress! I hope you’re enjoying the new place.
I’m with you Patti—a dress is easy, peasy! It always amazes me the women I meet, who never wear them!!
But besides wearing a terrific dress…that necklace is quite stunning!!
As for the wind & curls—why fight it, right?
Very pretty dress on you, the colours are perfect for fall!
Love your pretty floral dress! The bib necklace works perfect! And the back drop of your porch looks fabulous! 🙂
Beautiful flow, beautiful print, beautiful view, beautiful YOU!!
Love dresses which go across seasons! Thanks for the link up, Patti…have a great week.
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
Lovely as always! I love dresses, too, the easiest way to get dressed!
Looking lovely despite the breeze! That balcony looks gorgeous, more photos please!
