I think July is the hottest month of the year in Florida. And it sure feels that way, although September can be baking-hot too. The wardrobe solution for me is to wear airy skirts, made of cotton or linen, and to let my toes hang out. Florals and stripes are my favorite summer prints, so why not make a marriage of them?

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!

This super-full skirt from Modcloth is one of my summer heroes. I often wear it with a hot pink tank or navy graphic tee. Today I’m trying out a subtly-striped cotton shirt, thrifted just yesterday. It’s a slightly dressier look, and would work for the office, if I had to go to such a place.   : >


The hair is the Wiki by Ellen Wille. I cut some of the cap out at the nape to make it a little cooler.

I added a small silk Missoni scarf, bought at the original Filene’s basement about 20 years ago. I loved that place! The sandals are the Mirabelle by Sofft, super comfortable.


When the slight breeze catches your hem, ahhhh.

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  2. I love the stripes with the florals. And the shot of you with the wind-blown flounce is so good. It may be friggin’ hot but you look cool, Patti. Thanks for the linkup!

  3. so love that scarf with the shirt Patti. Very chic! Have a lovely week and sending lots of love across the Atlantic. Gonna be on vacation next week and cannot wait I am telling you xxxx Sabina

  4. Can’t beat a swishy skirt and shirt in hot weather. The floral is so pretty. Many thanks for hosting Visible Monday Patti.

  5. Woo! It’s been hot here too! I also love a big full skirt in hot weather, and a long-sleeved shirt – it’s practically my uniform! Thanks for the link-up, Patti! You rock!

  6. Looking cool and collected in your florals and stripes mix outfit. The addition of the little scarf is subtle but effective. I do wish I would look as good as that in the heat! xxx

  7. Thank you for hosting. I am also in FL and taking a couple of photos outside right now, is almost too much!

  8. Love this outfit Patti! Anytime stripes and floral are in the mix I am a fan – also loving the scarf and those shoes look so comfortable!

  9. That’s a great wide skirt! I don’t know why I hardly ever wear white blouses. I think they look cool on others!

  10. I find dressing for hot weather challenging, nothing feels right (or, rather, everything just feels too much). Your skirt and shirt combo looks comfortable and cute, though.
