Visible Monday #111: Colorful Karina For A Casual Office

Welcome to Visible Monday #111! 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.

What’s easier and prettier than a Karina dress for a Friday work day? A Karina Carmen dress with a Megan Mae obi belt ☺.

My Beleza stone bracelet is feminine, like the dress, and matchy. Red lips are the only other accessory, and there you have it, a “When In Doubt, Wear . . .” outfit!

Kenneth Cole Reaction sandals got a lot of love this summer.

Now, let’s see what you’re wearing, Visible Women!!

The guidelines to participate in the Visible Monday Link-Up are so simple!

  1. Whoever wants to can join in! Just compose a post that includes any outfit, accessory, piece of jewelry, hairstyle, cosmetic or other adornment that makes you feel more confident, alive and visible that day.

  3. Go to the bottom of this post and click on this cute little link:

  1. Eek, I missed VM this week, I'm so sorry (feels bad to link late so I won't.) But I had to comment because your dress is so so pretty, and the colour is exquisite on you. And because yet again I am astonished at the number of photos linked in comparison with the number of comments left… Politeness would suggest a comment is an appropriate thank you to the host of such a popular platform. Sorry, Patti, I just had to say it! xxxx

  2. So nice to be back. And you look smashing in turquoise. Shaking it up with Megan's obi too. Nice work, Patti.

  3. Looking lovely as always, Patti. That blue is dazzeling with your coloing!
    Thanks for inviting us all over to play. Where is the drinks cart, please? I'm so ready …
    its been a week already!

  4. That's an amazing colour. It really suits you. Thanks so much for hosting once again. I love coming over every Monday. Xxx

  5. That dress is amazing on you, Patti! And so perfect with the MMD obi!

    Sorry I haven't done my pic up yet – big post coming tomorrow. I've been away!

  6. Sweet! It's always a small surprise to see one of my Obi belts pop up around the blog world. I love how you've rocked this one! I can't wait until I'm healed up enough to wear belts again.

  7. *Such* a pretty dress, and the pattern around the neckline frames your face prettily! The Megan Mae obi is icing on the cake, too!

  8. That Aztec style print dress is utterly gorgeous on you Patti, the blue suits you beautifully and I'm a big fan of the addition of the obi belt! Posting late today due to overwork, but better late than never…

  9. I'm not normally a big fan of this kind of print but I have to say this is one of my favourite dresses on you! I love the colour with your blonde hair and skin and the cut really suits you – you look positively radiant in it! Just goes to show what won't work for you can be wonderful on another person!

  10. Love the print of the dress. It definitely looks comfy & chic. You can never go wrong with an A-line dress.

  11. Wow! What a lively vibrant color it is. Such a lovely dress and you look so pretty. Love the bracelet too and the shoes are cool. Many thx Patti for let us all be visible πŸ™‚ Have a lovely week.

    I have had SO MANY complimetnts on the bracelet–it's just STUNNING!

  15. Patti, I LOVE that Karina dress! I think I am going to have to log on to their site and have a looksee at what is available now that I see you have the coupon code up and running. Perfect colour on you!

  16. The Karina is perfect on you in that color especially, and the obi by Megan is the perfect personal touch!! You make summer look good!!. πŸ™‚

  20. Wonderful dress, and fabulous styling with the double tie blet.
    Glad to be back to my dear friends.

  21. I love that color and print, and the obi really takes it beyond the ordinary. You look like you're ready for work, play or anything!

  22. The dress is just such a lovely color on you! I hope to get back in the swing of things soon and perhaps participate next week. Many faces here that are new to me.

  23. You look so great in vibrant colors, Patti. I think this print is my favorite Karina dress print yet!

  26. Patti, I've gotta hand it to you. Best. Outfit. Ever. I am in LOVE with the turquoise on you and adding the INCREDIBLE obi belt … well it's just doing my head in!!!!!!!! xoxoxoxo

  27. The dress is beautiful, but that belt, WOW! It does read of men's ties, but is so chic. I envy your little waist!!

  28. You look gorgeous in that dress Patti! I ordered a Karina dress today, BEFORE I saw this post. We have a crazy style connection! xoxoxo

  29. Great color and this dress is cute with the belt and pretty bracelet. Your hair looks great!

    blue hue wonderland

  30. Hi Patti, I love the color of that Carmen. I just ordered a Penelope and can't wait to wear it! And I realize that by adding the upcycled belt, you, too are a Mrs. American Made! Lovely outfit.

  31. That is such a beautiful dress and a gorgeous color too. You look very pretty.

    Thx for letting me join Visible Monday. And stupid me messed it up. I am sorry about that awful photo, after uploading it from my hard drive there was no such thing as a cropping tool so I could crop it properly myself. The photo was published immediately automatically cropped. Sorry I try to make it better the next time. And I also hope I did this post right, as Disqus is new to me *fingercrossed*

  32. You look stunning in that color, and the pattern mix between the dress and obi is really fun!

  33. Wow, I'm loving this dress on you and the belt on the dress! Fabulous pattern-mixing!

  34. You're absolutely right, a Karina Carmen dress with that Magen Mae Obi belt is The BEST! What a perfect combination. I just pulled up her website for the belts, can't wait to place my order. Thank you for this wonderful idea. As always, you look radiant.

  35. This is a gorgeous color on you Patti and looks perfect for Florida! Thanks for hosting Visible Monday!

  36. I love this patter mix, Patti! I'm so smitten with Karina dresses I hope to have one someday. On the other hand, Megan has set aside two of her beautiful obi belts to deliver next time we meet IRL – which hopefully will be soon! I'm curious to see if they fit me as beautifully as they do you πŸ˜‰


  37. Love , love, love all the ethnic prints..those great patterns and colors work together so well. It's great seeing your boho side! Thanks for hosting Visible Monday!!!

  38. Love the color of this dress on you! I love the obi belt made out of men's ties and in fact have intentions of making some. I just have to get the sewing machine out…
