Visible Monday #116: Lace Any Time

Welcome to Visible Monday #116! 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 took this picture before we left for NYC, as you can probably tell! We were still having temps in the upper 80’s, so no scarf, gloves or boots are needed. ☺

This lace top by Democracy is one of my favorite pieces. It’s feminine without being too fluffy, and looks great over a dressy skirt, or with cropped jeans. The shoes are by Colour of Cocktail, and the green bangle was thrifted in NYC last year.

It’s good to be home, and the cats were beyond happy to see us (“feed me!”).

OK, pet me, but then feed me.
Ain’t nothing wrong with lace and denim.

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.
  2. Include a link to Not Dead Yet Style somewhere in your post. Please leave a comment, too, so we know you had a good time.
  3. Go to the bottom of this post and click on this cute little link:
