Visible Monday #59: Easy Pieces

Welcome to Visible Monday #59! If you want to participate, it’s so
easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the simple how-to.

You know I like easy dressing. The Florida climate and my casual workplace encourage it too. So today I chose two easy pieces and a couple of basic accessories, for a simple yet Visible result.

The blouse is by GAP, and has a feminine ruffle at the neckline – hard to see in these pictures. The Old Navy skirt is several years old, thrifted and well-loved. The overlay of netting and sequins is dressier and swishier than my denim pencil skirt.

A couple of bangles, a blue suede belt, and drop earrings finish the look. Comfortable-but-not-dull sandals from White Mountain are perfect for all-day wear.

The fingernails are blue too – a coincidence, I promise!  : >
Cost-per-wear for this skirt has to be about fifty cents.

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.

  1. The detailing around the hemline with the pretty top and stencilling in the sandals are so wonderful together. Plus, your pops of blue in the bangle and belt are perfect accents. Breezy and cool as usual!
