One of the reasons it’s so much fun to dress for cool weather is all the layering choices. Summer style is more challenging, because we can’t bear too many layers. Some days, just underthings seem like enough.
|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.|
I’ve found a favorite summer style “uniform” to stay cool, yet creative. I layer a weightless, floaty top over a weightless, floaty dress, or cotton tank dress. I have a handful of these dresses (sim). This one is by Mado Et Les Autres, and it’s a lovely one, åon its own or as a layer. The airy top (sim) was thrifted for $2 at the Molly Mutt. And the new-at-the-thrift black platform shoes (sim) are by Gentle Souls, and incredibly comfortable.
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.

It’s great. Indeed, these photos are very inspiring.
You look cool as a cucumber in these light weight , float layers Patti! Cute summer hairdo as well!
Great look for a summer vacation, and run arounds. thanks for the link. have a great week
I too have a summer uniform. Really, I have a uniform for many seasons and occasions. Makes getting dress so much easier, lol! Love the look…xo!
What a great idea, Patti! (The things you learn on linkups 😉 ) I will definitely be trying your tip! You look fabulous, as always!
Excellent information! Very helpful list thanks for the info. Save using coupon. they have great stuff too. try it!
Such a fun style, Patti! I love layering, and love your idea for milder summer days! Your plants look wonderful too. I don’t seem to do well with succulents. I know…they need Florida sun! 🙂
You rock the hair Patti. Oh La La!!
Love the hair Patti already told you so on insta I know. But its just way cool….and layering is perfect for our kind of weather here as well. xo Sabina
You look lovely in these photos as usual Patti – you have an eye for those thrift shop finds!
Thank you for hosting and have a great week 🙂
Someone’s been playing with the wigs again! How fun to have hair options to experiment with. I am all about floaty, lightweight layers in the summer; usually a big top over some big pants, or a long loose skirt.
Oh to have the dilemma of which whispy layer to add over the next! Our British weather is changeable as ever with rain and high winds one day followed by sun and showers the next. You look adorable in that cute silver hairpiece Patti, and the lightweight layers are uber feminine too.
Wishing you a fab week ahead x
You are looking pretty and comfy! These are not always words used in the same sentence! I also like the sexy summer hairdo!
Love the light layers Patti…so pretty and summery!
Looks like a great summer uniform! I really like this idea, as well as your pretty dress.
It rarely gets truly hot here, but I agree that dresses are the best choice for summer. Love this look on you and the hair is wonderful!
Love the flowy top Patti , this silloutte is so pretty on you. So love the hairdo, so fun! I think my hair is going to be put up sooner than later due to the summer heat already!
Have a great week!
Summer layering is the best – all those sheers look good on you, Patti. And the hair!
How cute is that hair?!!!
Amazing hair situation!!!!!!
That hairstyle is adorable for you, love it Patti!
Happy Monday Patti!
You look so beautiful in that top, I love the cut of it and I hope you have an amazing day!xoxo
Layered to perfection! I’m going to give this idea a try. Thanks for hosting, Patti!
Your hair looks so good! Lovely layering skills.
No layers for this sun starved Brit, I’ll be so excited to feel warmth on my skin I’ll be stripping off completely! xxx
This looks like a wonderfully weightless ensemble that floats away from the body. When heat and humidity come full force in summer that is the best choice.
what a fun hairstyle, love this on you. Plus great outfit and perfect for summer
I love your hair! How fun! I also think layering is the key to dressing in almost any climate. I layer here in the mountains all the time. It’s functional but adds so much detail to an outfit! Peace!
Oh Patti, I love this easy feminine whimsical style! And your hair is so adorable!
So glad to have you back dear Patti. Looking fabulous with your new hair style.
I love your silvery style. Your hair looks great too! Gail x
I haven’t much explored layering tops over dresses, but that must open up some exciting possibilities! Love the pendant. Have a good week x
I can’t get past the hair, Patti, your do is FABULOUS.
A great layering combo for summer — and I am LOVING the hair! 🙂
I love a summer outfit like this because there are no visible bra straps, yet you’re still cool! I hate hot weather… xx
Love your hairstyle! Pretty summer layering! I’m wearing a faux layered top in my post.
Thanks for hosting!
Great top Patti! I have a similar one, that I wore 3 times last week with white linen pants. Such a fantastic uniform!
Thanks for the link up,
Love your floaty top!
This is a very cute hairstyle on you! Thanks for hosting each week Patti.
I love this layered look, Patti! I bought a very lightweight kimono last year and plan on getting a couple more to do some layering in the summer…
Thanks for the link up & have a wonderful week!
Love, love, love your hair!!
Patti, smart thinking to layer with lighter fabrics. You look great, head to toe. The “do” is quite becoming on you. Thanks for sharing your styling brilliance and for the link up.
Love your hair! Did you have the Gala styled or is it just the way you received it. You look fabulous….
I just wore it out of the box, I like it messy. Thanks for your kind words, xo
I love your outfit and your hair!! So cute!
You look absolutely perfect for the summer, Patti!!
As for your plants…at least you can grow some—we killed the mint last year so I think we’ll just give up even trying!!!
Although I always love your,, messy,, hairdo(if I may say it like that, I also wear it,, messy,,),I also love this shorter look!
Patti, oh my gosh, I absolutely loooooove your new hair cut, it’s so fresh and stylish looking, you look like a total different woman with it. GORGEOUS <3
Patti! You look so different with short hair! I like it! xx
You look very cool. And comfortable. I don’t know how you do it. Hot weather is definitely a challenge for me, and whatever I wear always seems wrong…
You look summer perfect, Patti! Thanks for the link up and have a great week!
