Dressing “young” and funky over 60 – it’s all good. Don’t listen to the “rules” about what not to wear over 40, 50, 60 or 70. Wear what you love, and what makes you feel like the real “you”. Make your own guidelines that are meaningful for YOU. For me: nothing too short or tight or too low-cut, because that’s how I roll. I was the same modest dresser at 30.
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!
These knit divided trousers were found in a boutique in Soho, NYC. I love it that they are not completely predictable, and have a city vibe. They were an impulse buy, which I don’t often do – but maybe I should? 😊
The cropped gray knit top by Free People was rented via Nuuly. I love the dropped shoulders and the asymmetrical cut – modern and still “me”. I like the wide neckline too, it’s flattering to show off a lot of neck and a glimpse of collarbone.

Such a great outfit and those pants are really cool! I say yes to the occasional impulse buy, for sure!
Such a fun outfit! You look adorable! Awesome!
Thanks Michelle, and have a happy holiday! xox
I totally agree, Patti! We should all wear what makes us feel good and feel free to be a little funky! ESPECIALLY over 60, right? I love your casual style that is uniquely you.
Hello Darlene and thanks for linking up on Christmas Eve! I adore those little red sling-backs. Have a happy holiday, xox.
patti! i needed your post today! i just threw out a SHOULD I social-graphic out there to get the opinions of ladies of whether i should keep the thrifted long, tiered metallic skirt i bought as a skirt or up-cycle as a Copy-Cat Anthropologie dress…and i cited one reason of maybe not to upcycle into a dress because of my age–i’m 48…and i have vericose veins…and the dress would not look good with tights….and most women told me to forget about my age….and then i saw your post and just reconfirmed this!…would love to show you what i want to upcycle—but i would share the link only with your permission…thanks, eva
Hi Eva and thanks for coming by! I like your skirt-as-a dress, a la Anthro. And I’d wear nude fishnets or similar with it, if I wanted to cover my legs. But you do you, and you’ll be fine! Happy holidays, xox.
I am wearing a similar outfit to this one today (great minds think alike), so am obviously sending love for the pants and sweater combo. “Very NYC” is the best compliment I can give, and I know you understand 😉 Merry Christmas Patti!
Hi Shelley and thanks for coming by! I hope your holidays are merry and bright, xox.
Agree with wearing what you love, no matter your age. Love this outfit on you. Funky and casual. Boat necklines are so flattering. And those Madden boots are very cool!
Happy holidays to you
thanks so much for your kind words, Theresa, and for linking up. Happiest holidays to you too! xox
You know that I’m in 100% agreement with wearing whatever you love. This outfit is so funky/cool and totally you! Merry Christmas my friend! xo
Good morning Debbie and thanks for linking up! I loved your story about your 8 year-old self and the magic you made. Merry Christmas to you, xox.
What a fun outfit! I am with you with windy pictures: this past week, pictures have been funny with hair flying everywhere!
Good morning, Mireille and thanks for linking up. Your Christmas Day outfit is perfect, love your statement earrings! Happy holidays to you, xox.
I love this combo, Patti. You’re right, the divided trousers are super cool. And I love how you could rent your top. A great look that says you’re an interesting person – in the best way.
Hello dear Melanie and thanks for coming over with your fabulous-ness. I would love to join your un-monastery! Have a happy holiday and stay awesome, xox.
What a great post . You look fabulous as always.
Thanks Debby and thanks for your good wishes. Happiest holidays to you too! xox
You look totally NYC, babe. Well, maybe you’d be in total black. But close enough. Yeah.
Thanks Pao. Looking “NYC” is my favorite compliment. Love, love your checked coat, xox.
