It’s wonderful to change your look day to day, while still being true to your personal style. A few weeks ago I was in black head to toe, and loving it. Here is a blazing change into warm, vivid colors, for a Florida winter day. I sometimes wonder if I could ever wear a “uniform”, but it seems the answer is no, not yet.

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.

My knit dress (similar) is several years old and still a winter favorite. It’s cozy and body-skimming. I added a gorgeous new scarf (sim) I found at the Molly Mutt thrift and tied it like a proper wrap. Black leggings are always a treat to wear, when your “winter” lasts a few weeks! And my trusty Steve Madden boots (sim) finish off the look.

The seafood jambalaya was wonderful. I left the shrimp for Sandy.


Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.

The guidelines to participate in the Visible Monday Link-Up are so simple:

    1. 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.
    2. Include a link to Not Dead Yet Style somewhere in your post.
    3. Go to the bottom of this post and click on the InLinkz button “Add Your Link”. It should open a new page.
    4. In the “Next Step”, you crop the pic (easy tool) you want to display, and you’re done!


Oh hey! Not Dead Yet Style is on Instagram! Please check it out when you have a moment: Instagram.

P.S. I am just returning from an exciting blogger meeting in Phoenix, Arizona! I may not be able to respond to all your posts in a timely manner.ย  But please add your gorgeous pictures/links to the party and be assured I will see them and be grateful for all of them.


Stay fabulous,

  1. Great scarf, tied to perfection, this would add interest to any outfit. On the thought of a uniform , no you are definately not there yet. Thank you for hosting Visible Monday.

  2. Totally hear you Patti. After all those year in theater changing costumes has taught me a lot about the importance of clothes. It actually does matter what we wear. And I love that change on you. Soft and feminine. xxx Thanks for hosting. Sabina

  3. Dearest Patti, thanks for the link up party again this week. I’ve been loving seeing all of the shots from the bloggers meet up – instagram is full of them! Goat yoga? What a scream.
    I love this colourful wrap over your warm winter togs, and it’s great to see those boots again. I’m still a little envious of them x

  4. That’s a great look! I love the scarf.

    From what I saw on Instagram, it looks like you all had a wonderful weekend! I would have loved to join you all, but it didn’t work out this time. Next time!

    Thanks for the link up & have a wonderful week!

  5. Patti, how interesting that we talked about capsule wardrobes and “uniforms” this past weekend. It would be a shame for someone with your eye for style and flair to be confined by a “uniform”. The colors in your scarf are beautiful and they bring sunshine into your look so perfectly.


  6. Fantastic scarf/wrap! I hope you ordered the exotic burger to match. Heh. Missing all of you on Phoenix. Sigh. But so glad to join you here.
