Visible Monday #126: I Wear My Cat On My Chest

Welcome to Visible Monday #126! 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.

You all know I’m a crazy cat lady. And I am not ashamed. Some of the best people I’ve known have been cats. And, since my office has a casual dress “code” (I don’t think I’ve even heard that word, in 14 years), a cat sweater is perfectly OK.

This cute one is from ASOS (similar), all cotton, and really fun to wear. I teamed it with a thrifted black skirt from Banana Republic, new tights from Target and my favorite Cydwoq booties. Cat ladies unite!

My cats would never wear a sweater with my picture on it. So who’s smarter, eh?

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

  1. Hi…I found this blog poking around the internet, but I want to say that you are so purty and adorable! And you have such a cool sense of style! I think I'm secretly kind of adventurous when it comes to style, but I always end up doing stuff kind of halfway, and I often just end up looking not quite put-together, or something. But I LOVE your creative and colorful style, which somehow seems funky yet sophisticated and fun yet age-appropriate. I was compelled to comment.

  3. You always look so radiant in blue! Very cute sweater! Sadly I'm now allergic to cats but I do have fond memories of a family cat we had when we were children.

  4. Hee!! Kitty shirt. Whether the cat is on the shirt or just the cat fur, I'm sure I wear a lot of cats. (mostly their fur, they love clean laundry)

  5. Awwwwh. You are cute as a button with a kitty on your chest! Love it. And thanks again and as always for hosting … I'm so late, and I apologize most abjectly. VisMon is getting bigger, yes?

  6. I think that's the best cat sweater that I've laid eyes on. Accessorized with a red bow tie? And you wearing it? Couldn't be better!

  7. Aw, what a cute kitty sweater – you look awesome and full of fun in this, Patti. Love those Cydwoq beauties too!

    Thanks so much for hosting!

  8. Don't mean to put a damper on the "cat" party, but I am looking at this as a memorial to my Toby, born 17 yrs. ago in Port St. Lucie, who went to kitty heaven yesterday, way out here in Idaho. As usual, you always look fabulous,…. in your cat sweater.

  9. Heehee so true Patti, what cat worth their Whiskers would wear an Owner Sweater? But does that stop us from being obsessed with kitties? er no!! I'm very much taken with your gorgeous boots! xo

  10. Now that was unexpected. Love the comment about your cat not wearing a pix of you. hee hee. Maybe if it was a cameo….

  11. Hi there. I've linked up for the first time. Thank you for hosting. We have 4 cats so understand your fascination! Love Lizzy xxx

  12. Those boots are fabulous! I love them with this outfit and appreciate the blue tights immensely!

  13. You are probably the most UN-crazy cat lady I've ever met. Kitty lovers unite!

  14. ASOS has become one of my fave go-to online stores. That sweater is so adorable and that's saying something since I'm more a dog person. It's the boots that make the outfit for me, though. Lurve!

  15. I laughed out loud at "my cats would never wear a sweater with my picture on it". πŸ˜› Too funny, but you look great in yours!

  16. Good morning Patti, I love your shorter hair and WANT tat cute top, ahhhhhhhhhhhh
    Thank you for this wonderful gathering.
    Love and sunshine
    Will you join me on Saturday the 29th Share-in-Style?

  17. Cats are just the best, aren't they? We feed them, clean after them, love them… and they don't even want to wear a sweater with our portraits! And then we just adore and love them even more. πŸ™‚ Very fun and happy look! You look beautiful and mischievous! πŸ™‚

  18. Oh that's cute. When I was a little girl my mum used to sew my clothes and she made me a shirt with an embroidered cat. I am seriously thinking of asking her to make me another one!

  19. Mrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr… so pretty in blue! I like the color (and the cat)
    Have a great new week πŸ™‚

  20. Patti, you carry off that cat sweater in a way I never could. I'ts cute and playful but not inappropriate in any way. Thanks for hosting Visible Monday, your motiviate this lazy blogger to blog πŸ˜‰

  21. I'm a cat lover, too! I love the way you tied in the sweater with the tights…and topped it all off with the killer Cydwok boots! Just got my first pair from E-Bay this week – LOVE!!!!!

  22. Aw, this post did not disappoint. Scrolling down to see kitty in a bow tie makes this crazy cat lady happy! I love your outfit and your hair!! You have been going shorter, and it's awesome! Doesn't it feel great? Thanks, as always, for hosting VM.

  23. I am a cat lady too! Have many pieces with cat theme print. So no wonder I love your sweater!

  24. Love the booties! This is a such a fun outfit, nice reminder that they're just clothes, something to have fun with!

  25. Just in love with the cat sweater!!! I love it with the tights and skirt. I think I need one myself!!!

  26. Your top is adorable! I would probably be a cat lady if my husband wasn't allergic to cats. I hope you don't mind that my post isn't outfit oriented .. I went to an exercise class that left me so sore that I can barely pull up my pants .. TMI?


  27. Patti your sweater is the bomb!!!!!!!!! It's absolutely adorable, I love it :))

  30. Great fun look Patti! As i said before blue looks really great on you! Hugs, Beata xxx

  31. loving your sweater, saw a similar one at Target but it was xs or xl only I was so sad ( and the one I wanted had a cat with glasses on, so cute)

  32. Hi Patti~yes, I'm back home missing that florida weather already–and you too!
    Love the playful sweater! I'm looking for one myself.
    As you'll see by my post, I am taking a break. We'll keep in touch! xoxo

  33. You can definitely wear you cat on your chest and what an adorable cat it is. I love a fun graphic or printed tee and or sweater especially when it's paired in such a fun, creative and classy way.

  34. I'm not sure why, but the bow tie on the cat makes it cooler than average…,love it!

  35. I LOVE this! So much fun!

    Almost makes me happy to be back from Jamaica…well ha ha! Let's not be crazy here
    ; P but I love the outfit and the kitty in the bow tie.

    Have to mention your hair is looking all kinds of fabulous lately. Whatever you are doing…don't stop!


  36. We've always had dogs… but now we are debating a cat. The family is split and I can't wait to see which side wins!
    Thanks for hosting!
    xo ~kim (and chloe)

  37. Such a cute sweater (I laughed at your comment about the cats refusing to wear one with you on it!) but actually, I was also admiring your gorgeous hair, the bright blue tights and those fabulous boots. You look great, Patti!
    As always, you are the hostess with the mostest, so thank you for having us. xxx

  38. I can surely understand the animal passion.. my MIL is crazy over owl and she has everything owl! Sweaters, bags, keychains, slippers.. everytime I see something owl, it always reminds me of her πŸ™‚

  39. I like cats and this sweater, dear Patti, is so much fun ! It's really lovely and I especially love how you paired it with matching blue tights ! Oh, and I am sure your cats would love a sweater with your face on it to wear, LOL ! Thanks for hosting Visible Monday, linking up with my latest post and also coming back with a new one soon, thinking you'll like that cause it's a bit like your spring uniform, you'll see πŸ˜‰ Kisses

  40. Ooooh, you look fab! That crazy cat jumper is fantastic, I love those blue tights and your hair looks amazing! xxx

  41. Hey…. cat woman. πŸ™‚ Nice pullover. But the shoes… wow. They really look great.
    Last week I visited an arts and crafts fair (incl. a fashion show), so I decided to wear this shirt printed with a dress form. Have a good time and an easy start into the new week.

  42. I'm with you, how can you not love anything with a cat on it! Fun outfit that brightens everyone's day.

  43. a cat with a bow, it really doesn't get much better than that! LOVE this sweater!!! great look! thanks for hosting Patti xx

  44. You look really cute…fun styling! Thanks for hosting Visible Monday!!

  45. If there's one thing I love it's a fellow animal lover that's not ashamed to declare themselves as such! What a great sweater – does it come in a "dog" style, because that'd be the one for me!
    Cuter than cute, Patti!
