It’s all gray, but it feels great. Last week I was super-colorful and boho (or “old hippie”). Today I’m all about the monochrome, in all-gray, and feeling good.

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 look is casual enough for my easy Florida life, at least 95% of it. If I need to look more polished I could swap out the stretch skirt for a slim woven pencil, and the open toe shoes for Chelsea-style booties. The scarf is a special one to me, with Bill Cunningham all over it.

The silver hair is via the Sweet Talk wig by Gabor. Fab lace up shoes are by Sofft.

The top is my favorite piece here – it’s by Kate Spade Saturday (now defunct) and it’s a super thick cotton blend with structure. I found it at my Greenwich Village Goodwill for $12, a good deal. The skirt is c/o pRana, an ethically-sourced green clothing line I think you would love.

Since I dressed conservatively, I had the urge to get my dance on. Always have a surprise at the ready.

Are you mono or rainbow today? Show us in the link-up.

  8. This is a great look, Patti. You are so right about that outfit working about 95% of the time–said by another FL resident. The wig has so much personality and spunk.

  9. Love you getting your dance on! Heh. I don’t see this as conservative because you’re the one wearing it, Patti. The scarf adds a burst too. I’m a bit muted in this photo but feeling so fine. O took my photos – such a treat. Thanks for the linkup!

    • Right you are, I haven’t been called conservative in at least 40 years : > Loved seeing your Nordstrom videos, and feeling very special to know you. xox

  10. I don’t stick to a certain style either – it’s much more fun to mix it up and have fun! I love the addition of the beautiful scarf to the grey background which allows it to stand out. Fabulous hair too! Hope you have a great week Patti 🙂
