When I can’t decide what to wear, I give myself permission to wear my closet favorites, as many times as I like. There’s a reason these pieces are my favorites: they fit well, flatter me, are easy care, and they feel like the authentic me. I’m sure you have pieces in your closet that do the same for you.
|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.|
This wonderful vintage 8o’s festival/granny/hippie dress has been a closet favorite for years. It’s from Citizen’s Rosebud Etsy shop, where you have to go take a look at all of Bella’s treasures. I love that it covers nicely, but is free and easy to wear. The feminine ruffles at the bodice are just right for my Refined Boho tastes. The length is perfect for flats, sandals, booties or pumps. I added only a vintage necklace (sim) and new-to-me chunky leather heels (sim).
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.

Love how you styled the dress. You look great!
Could not agree more. Love that boho-vibe, too. Have a great week Patti. xo Sabina
At last we are stripping off our clothes here in north west england.
Its not entirely good for the hair though all this heat. Yours is looking so lovely today Patti and the dress is a real winner for me
I’m doing a little celebration dance Patti…..as I FINALLY got your badge to go in my sidebar. I’ve been trying for ages and worried your code was broken BUT I just popped the code in the same box as Catherine’s code and “hey presto!!” Success!!!!! Happy face.
Thank you so much for being such a fabulous hostess and an inspiration!
With closet favourites like those, I can see why tou like to wear them! Very elegant.
Awesome dress, looks great on you!
Keep up with the good work and check out my blog if you have time,
It’s been a while since I have stopped by but I am happy to be back. As a beauty blogger, I am happy to see more beauty related links. As always, thanks so much for hosting! Off to check out some new-to-me blogs.
I love your pattern mixing! The black and white is so great with the floral maxi Patti.
I love Citizen Rosebud. Did she also not use to blog? Her posts were very well-written, from what I can remember. You look very good in this dress, Patti, I can also see you funk it up with ankle boots and some leather 🙂 Happy Monday, friend.
U know I luv a print mix!
Love the blazer. It’s so versatile!
Beautiful summer dress! Thanks for the linkup!
I have implemented the following system in my closet: I hang items as I wear them on the right side. That way I know how recently I wore the items on the left side — the further left, the less recent. It works great for me!
Linking an IG photo, since I REALLY need to reach my deadline of sending #dailytruck images to the printer today and I’m doing a stellar job of procrastinating.
That dress is lovely and perfect with the jacket! Loving the hair! xxx
The dress looks fab with the jacket, great mix of patterns. I have a few tried and tested outfits to fall back on when I can’t decide what to wear but need to get out the door quickly. Thanks for hosting, hope you have a good week!
.. my first time linking up with your fun ‘Visible Monday’
Your dress is very pretty, as is that little blue table you are standing beside!
Patti, love the boho vibe with this pretty dress! Looks lovely on you. I always think summer is the toughest time for blog pics ( for myself) as im either concerned about sweat or flat hair due to the humidity! ( Whats your secret 😉 xx
A beautiful closet favorite, Patti. And so versatile. You look fabulous wearing it!
Looking lovely as ever! I don’t know how you manage to look fresh in that Florida heat and humidity.
I am also a fan of dresses this length and style for summer. They are so easy to wear.
Such a great dress, Patti! Love the addition of the jacket and the pattern play!
Have a great week!
That’s a great dress! I love the pattern mixing with the jacket!
Thanks for the linkup & have a wonderful week!
That dress is so beyond fabulous! I would be wearing it all of the time too. 🙂
Oh wow! I can see why it is a closet favorite! It is beautiful! Peace!
Super dress Patti, looks fab on you, thanks for hosting the link up. Jacqui
That dress would be a favorite for me too!
Patti, this is so fabulous! You look so amazing in this dress and I love the pattern mix with the blazer. I love your style so much! And I take so much inspiration form you.
Dearest Patti, I hope one day this party becomes real.
Much love, dear friend
Love the hair Patti!!!
Yes to rewearing favourites often! It does help on days of indecision. That’s a neat jacket, very chic. X
Easy to see why this one is a favourite Patti, it really is just you, The jacket always a way to add a new look.Many thanks for hosting Visible Monday
I wore a vintage dress almost identical to this today! My 21 year old barista loved it. They love that 80s, early 90s stuff.
I think our favorites are faves for a reason—sometimes there are just pieces that speak to us!!
Tried and true is always a good go-to choice or even a plan B. The pattern mix with the jacket is great option for cooler weather.
Cats like to hang out behind the curtains. If there’s none a maxi dress does the trick too. I like how the kitty has the hem on the ear. So cute. The dress is a great find. I like the mixing of the print and pattern with the jacket. Great look!
I love it when you pull out something you have had forever and try different ways of wearing it. And it all pulls together so great. Thank you for being such a great hostess and have a wonderful week!
It’s clear why this is a favourite and I love the jacket you’ve chosen to wear with it – great mixing. And cool new shoes! Like you, I wear my faves over and over again. Such a great quick pick-me-up. Thanks for hosting, Patti.
Aww the kitty ear … hee cute. It’s 100 in San Jose today … awful! No jackets for us this weekend, but it was a good time to wear my new off the shoulder dress!
Have a great day, Patti!
Cute Jacket and CUTE YOU!!! Have a great week ahead!!
Thanks for the link up, Patti. Have a wonderful week!
I think that jacket is really fabulous! I love the classic design of it! Thank you for hosting Patti!
