As you probably know, I took a hard fall on the bathroom tile this week. My wrist needed extensive surgery and now I’ve got monster pins – aka External fixators – sticking out of my forearm. In addition to showering, putting on lipstick, brushing my teeth, and making the bed,  getting dressed with one hand is truly a challenge. So this week, I am only able to show you either my current sweat pants or this casual outfit I snapped before the big to-do.

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. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!

I think this whole outfit is thrifted. The blue blouse, with a flyaway back (sim), was picked up at Revolve in St. Petersburg. The white linen trousers (sim) from Molly Mutt are my new summer favorites. They are so light and easy to wear with any top in my closet. It’s not a high-style look, but great for a simple summer go-out-to-lunch day.


It wasn’t intentional, but I seem to be admiring my two healthy wrists in this picture. Those were the days, my friends.


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. Go to the bottom of this post and click on the InLinkz button “Add Your Link”. It should open a new page.
    3. In the “Next Step”, you crop the pic (easy tool) you want to display, and you’re done!
    4. Visit a few other bloggers, to make new friends and increase your own following.
