I wear skirts a lot in steamy Florida Summer and Fall. They’re cooler than jeans in the humid climate, and so versatile. They can be completely casual or dressed up for an occasion. I especially love skirts with personality.

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 Eileen Fisher skirt (thrifted, similar) has seen a lot of action. I wear it all year round, and love it with a black pullover, tights and booties. Today, it has new life with a petticoat underneath. Love that rustle, rustle, swish. I added a coral top (sim) and vintage western-style belt (sim), and finished with my funky Cydwoq booties (sim).

It was a beautifully windy day, and my skirts got blown up. And ceramic kitty stuck his naughty head underneath. Chunky vintage cuff (sim) is from Citizen Rosebud‘s shop.

  1. What a fun outfit Patti! You’d fit in well in my new home state of South Dakota!

  2. Love the colors of your outfit my friend. They are bright, rich and unexpected for Fall. That rusty coral and tanish-brown look great together. Thanks for the linkup my friend.

  3. Love this outfit! What cute style! I love in Florida too, and it’s been too hot. At least it’s cooling up some (in the Panhandle).

  4. Such fun photos! Layering a petticoat under your skirt for more fullness and extra dimension really transforms your skirt. I can see why it is a year-round favorite!

  5. Cats are always getting into trouble!

    Love the windswept skirt and petticoat. Petticoats are just so damn feminine and probably why I love them. It’s like a secret you’re keeping and just showing a hint. Of course the cat knows the full story now. Ha ha!


  6. The wind was definitely working in your favor Patti! What a fun look – I am dying over those booties, absolutely fabulous!

  7. I love how you have given the skirt extra interest by adding the petticoat. Love the booties too! xxx

  8. Beautiful skirt Patti. reminds me, I wore a dress to the park a few days ago and my shirt blow up just at the road! Thanks for hosting.

  9. Thanks for hosting the party. The color combination is really unusual, but I like it. You look stunning. Cute booties too!

  10. Patti, you’re looking fabulous as usual and your description of the ensemble was quite amusing, especially about kitty’s antics. Thanks for sharing your wonderful inspirations and for the link up. I hope that you have a wonderful week ahead of you.


  11. Naughty kitty. The expression on his face after he comes out is priceless! Hahaha. I love this ruffled skirt look, so swingy and clean. And I always pine for Cydwogs. And Bell’s cuff will bring luck. Thanks for hosting, Patti.

  12. I can see why that skirt is a year round favourite , so versatile with layering options. The petticoat also adds another dimension and looks great too. Many thanks for hosting Visible Monday.

  13. Such an interesting skirt! And I can see how you can wear it with boots in winter or with sandals in summer. Multipurpose clothes, we need more of those.

  14. The ruffle skirt and petticoat is fab; I don’t have anything like that in my wardrobe! I may need to fix that…. xx
