Summer temperatures call for light colors, light fabrics, tons of sunscreen (melanoma patient here), a haircut, and a relaxed vibe. I’ve got all the above today, except I am wearing basic black. I love black all year, it makes me feel properly dressed. I like to mix it with white and ivory, and I enjoy the freedom to eat spaghetti at lunch without my Tide pen in hand.

The structured dress I’m wearing is dressier than most of my daily outfits, but I still love wearing it to bike around town, or walk down to the corner to get a slice. One of the many delights of retirement is having no wardrobe divisions – it’s all for fun now. I thrifted this no-tag dress downtown, and I usually add a couple of necklaces. Here I wore only two bracelets, one from when I was about eight years old. It spells out “Patti” in tiny beads, and my grandfather Gibbons crafted it.
If you’re eating indoors in Florida, you’ll need a jacket – strange but true. The restaurants and shops are kept chilly, for the tourists I reckon. I’m loving this thrifted jean jacket by Lucky Brand; it goes with every darn thing in my closet. Summer sandals to show off the pedicure, naturally.
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.
