Welcome to Visible Monday #71! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the simple how-to.
I’m wearing my Vivienne by Vivienne Tam camouflage top today. I love this warm shade of green, it matches my eye color. I read in a style book that matching one’s eye color with a top or scarf is a fool-proof color selector. I like fool-proof. And this top is really fun to wear. It’s long and flowy, but not baggy, and has a cool exposed zipper.
The layers are a simple GAP tee and a new knit pencil skirt I bought on Ideeli.com. Have you ever shopped there? I’m cautious because my research has shown they don’t always offer a true discount. But this Thalian skirt was only $18. It fits perfectly, so I went back and bought a teal one too!
|It’s still warm enough in Florida to show toes.|
|Love that zipper, although I was sure I had the top on
inside-out the first time : >
|Can’t go wrong with a knit pencil skirt that moves well with you.|

Excellent colours and hemlines, Patti! I think you're on to something with the eye colour tip.
Thank you so much for hosting another wonderful Visible Monday!
Patti! I love this top. I think we may have a similar eye color? –
Maybe olive, peridot, yellow-green, cat's eyes? i can't ever figure out just how to describe them. And I always want to buy the tops that match, even if they don't really work! 🙂
what an adorable shit
Green eyes! Lucky! I love the tip about matching to eye color. Come to think of it, I never go wrong when I choose something the color of my eyes!
Woo, Patti! You have got such a great figure, Lady! I'm with you on the exposed zipper trend. I always have to look twice to make sure it's not inside out. That top of yours is so darn cute!!! ~Sarah
I love your camo look, Patti! It's just the right touch of trendiness to spice up a black pencil skirt. It looks great on you!

The top is really pretty and that zipper in the back is really cool.
Cute outfit! I love the idea of a knit pencil skirt, but every time I try one on, they just end up accentuating my hips in a trashy way. 😉 You however look amazing classy and lovely in yours. 😉
I would like the tip about picking up your eye color in a top or scarf… but mine are brown. Booring!
Your top looks great on you, though!
I love the camo shirt and I am so envious that you can wear a outfit like that now, it is soo cold here.
very lovely top and skirt! You look amazing as always.
Patti, Very cute look on you. I don't know if it's because I'm a sewer, or what, but the outside applied zippers get me every time. I'm not sure I would have noticed yours because it looks tone on tone. Thanks for hosting the link party!
Great use of layering! I like the fact that your camoflauge print looks like a floral print. I love the visible zip down the back of the top too, it gives it a very modern feel.
That smile is your best accessory! Great look & shoes!
Oh, wow, you look so cool! You do camo very elegantly. 🙂
Really nice top, Patti. I like the Visible (hee hee) zip and a great print. Makes me rethink the possibility of Camo….
Great skirt! I wish I could find a knit pencil skirt that truly fit well. Love the zipper detail on the back of your tank. Green is definitely a great color on you.
That top is so much fun! and you have to love any outfit that is both pulled together AND comfortable!
What a cute top, front to back. And I always love it when you wear those shoes. =)
I got this week's Visible print shirt at ideeli too!
Love your olive/burgundy top.
I love the top, the back of it is really in too, the showing of the back zipper! love the camo in the front too!
Love your outfit! I suspect that warm colors suit your coloring better than cool ones do because that vest is a great addition to your ensemble.
I have always wanted green eyes…my mother has them.
Love the zipper in the back!
I'm not a fan of camouflage prints, at all, but you wear this well — that back view is especially sassy!
I like the asymmetrical hemline too. And it almost looks like a print other than camouflage, it's so pretty. Nice combination you put together, Patti.
Awesome outfit like the shoes oo.
Patti, you look lovely in your stylish camo! You look amazing in pencil skirts. I can hardly wait to see the other one you purchased.
A simple and fun outfit, Patti, love that little zip detail! Wish I was still in sandals, it's freezing here! xxx
lovely look – I just love the zipper on the back of the top!! makes it very sexy.
Patti – what a great look! This is one of my favorites. The exposed zipper really adds a nice modern edge to it. And that pencil skirt fits you so well.
Looks great! Love your playful pose in the first photo. Let the fun begin! 🙂
I am not a fan of camo, but will reconsider because of your top! I like the exposed zipper.
So nice to meet my dear friends every Monday.
You look gorgeous patti.
I love your splash of camo, it works beautifully with your blonde hair. Those visible zips are very sexy. x
It's a great top for you! I shop at ideeli too but not much – they seem to sell the same things and keep changing the categories they are in.
an extraordinary top, patti, with the zipper on the back. i like that comfy style. and i envy you still wearing sandals.
Yowza, Patti, the skirt is a fantastic fit.
Great outfit and great top Patti. Unfortunately, following that eye rule for me would mean wearing dark brown which I'm not too keen on for myself….
I really love the zip at the back too – love details like that! Yay you found a skirt you love and looks amazing so you got two – clever and gorgeous:) xo
This is like camouflage for a trip to Giverny – very beautiful!
Hi Patti! You're lookin' cute as usual. Hope you have a happy week! Thanks for hosting again, and again, and again….
Looks great! I'm a big fan of wearing green to match my eyes. 🙂
Very cute and I LOVE the shoes!!
I agree with everyone else – you look very cool in this. I really love the shoes, and also can't wait to see the teal skirt.
It's warm enough to still wear sandals here, too, which is unheard of! Freakishly warm in Eugene, Oregon.
Lucky you. Green is the rarest eye color.
Hi Patti! Green is one of my favorite colors too, and camo is always good in small doses with black (and denim, I think). Artful layering in warm weather!!
Patti, that's just enough camo to look trendy without being full on commando! I tend to go a little overboard with it myself…
love the back shot! Aren't you curious of how you look from the back? Now you know!
What a fun top! I like the back zip detail.
Looking very funky Patti, that top suits you! Like you I love wearing green, to make the green of my eyes stand out.
Patti, I am digging the layers and especially like the asymmetrical hem on the camouflage top.
Patti, this is actually very sexy on you!
Casual but very chic! LOVE it!
So jealous you can still show your toes! I love the embellished sandals.
You look very modern and cool. I love that pencil skirt with the fun print. I'll have to check out that website, although I likely rather have too many pencil skirts 😛
You look lovely Patti, I'm big on camo this season. Will try to post another pic of myself on your Visible Monday board (though another blogger emailed to tell me that the first/last time I tried it, it didn't link through?)
I have a Vivienne Tam skirt that I love – great fabric in your top! I love a knit pencil cut skirt and that one is just awesome on you!
great outfit! i love the exposed zip on the camo top, very nice and the skirt looks like it was made for you! x
I totally love this look! Am brand new to your blog, and a new follower. Looking forward to seeing more of your style.
Love the top–it's really flattering to you!! I read about matching color to your eyes. guess that's why I love teal so much!!!
I will drag up Halloween one last time….my Halloween costume.
