Welcome to Visible Monday #161! 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.

A wrap dress is my go-to silhouette when I’m not sure what to wear. A well-fitting wrap, like this Karina Ruby, always feels good, looks polished and goes casual or dressy. I am medium dressy today, but I’ve also worn this dress over jeans and leggings, with oxfords.

The colorful jacket is my favorite Trina Turk, purchased on consignment (similar). It always surprises me how many outfits it “goes” with. Booties are Cydwoq, via eBay (sim), the necklace (sim) is thrifted, and the bracelet (sim) is from Bella’s wonderful shop.

Now, show us what you’re wearing, Visible Women!!

  7. Oooh! I like that necklace!

    Isn’t it funny that such a bold patterned coat goes with so much? I often find that with my bold prints.

    You’re in NY right now? : ) Hope you are having a wonderful time!

    You are looking extra radiant here.


  8. I hear you loud and clear about the wonders of pulling on a wrap dress. I have yet to invest in a Karina one, but it’s on my radar.

  9. This style of dress always looks good on you. And I really like how you wear that amazing Trink Turk jacket with it. Thanks for hosting, Patti. I brought dip this time.

  10. I have been searching for a new wrap dress. They are so flattering! You look lovely in this, and I adore the boots!

  11. You are getting more and more creative every time I see you, Patti. Luv the Cydwoqs with the dress. And that coat! Who would’ve thought, but it does look brilliant together. And I even saw it on you in person!!

  12. You look lovely Patti, the wrap dress is a classic and this one fits you so well! The colourful jacket is such a delightful piece in itself! I hope you had a lovely weekend 🙂 lots of hugs, Beata x

  13. Yay, Patti, I love your new comment system, it’s cool!
    Your Karina dress is really pretty and the Trina Truck coat is beautiful, not surprised it goes with so much as it is so bright and cheerful! The dress is perfect for this weather too as a great length and you can layer underneath it too!

  14. I could just say Ditto Val…I too love the coat, and it goes beautifully with your dress. The Cydwoqs…definitely the hippest boots ever, and we west coasters, Val and I, consider ourselves pretty hip, LOL. I want a pair just so I can say the name over and over!

    Thanks for hosting VM Patti! Always a pleasure to join in.

  15. Wrap dresses are the best! A wrap dress is my go-to option, too, when I need an easy outfit. One-stop dressing at its best. And your dress is very pretty. Have a great week, Patti!

  16. Love that coat! What a hot contrast to the cool blue of the dress. And the hippest boots ever! Definitely visible, you are, and an inspiration to the rest of us.
