Welcome to Visible Monday #31! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the simple how-to.
I’m not breaking through any fashion barriers today, am I? I am in familiar territory, with a cozy knit top and black midi skirt. But I felt so good that my confidence made me more visible and I smiled at (almost) everyone. Being visible isn’t only about the clothing, of course: it’s also in our posture, our attitude, and our willingness to engage.
I love a horizontal stripe on top, and this Old Navy knit is just right. The dropped shoulder makes it a little more stylish, and how about those stripes lining up between sleeve and body? I also like an open neck like this – no itching, and it shows off collar bones (in my 50’s, I am very particular about what gets “shown off”).
I like to “surrender the waist” some days; thanks to Angie from You Look Fab for that phrase. It’s a different look for me but I enjoy the change. The skirt is a recent thrift store purchase. It’s by Randolph Duke, whom I believe sells via the Home Shopping Club. It’s a nice medium weight swingy knit. Thrifted wedge boots and a leaf pendant from Forever21 are the final touches.

I can’t wait to see what you are wearing today!
