Visible Monday #76: A Spot of Animal

Welcome to Visible Monday #76! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the easy how-to.

I took advantage of a rare cool day to wear my heavy cotton leopard skirt. It was thrifted in NYC, therefore has sacred standing in my closet (kidding, mostly!). I really do enjoy its thick fabric and cool print, and love the shape/length.

On top is a simple black GAP tee and a super-soft ivory cardigan by Nurture. I wish it would cool down so I could wear it more. Black tights and black Aldo boots, recently re-heeled and re-soled, finish the look. Can you “spot” (heh) my new ring?

I feel Visible and sassy, what more could a woman want?
You can see my ring here, getting cozy with my skirt.

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

The guidelines to participate in the Visible Monday Link-Up are so simple!

  1. As I was loving this outfit, I thought to myself that I have all the pieces in my closet and so now I have to "copy" your fabulous look!  Great job! 

  2. This is such a great outfit! I really think you look so good in pencil skirts and more fitted looks. Lucky you!

  3. I can't tell you how much I love this skirt, Patti, it's certainly sassy, and you look fabulous in it! I think items bought in special places, on special trips, do have a special place in our wardrobes – why not?! xxx

  4. Love the leopard skirt and boots combo, Patti! And your hair is looking gorgeous!!! ~Sarah

  5. This skirt is amazing! I love it. Also, my "cool weather" is about 30 degrees, so really it's pretty cold here. Boo.

  6. I always love animal print but my favorite is that you added the brown belt. I just bought a vintage one this weekend mainly to wear with black like you did here..loving a touch of brown with black!

  8. I am so ignorant in this world of computers. In this case – wrong image. I will try again next Monday. Great initiative!

  9. Your are fantastic in that animal print, Patti.
    So wonderful to be another Monday with all of you, dear friends.

  10. I never feel sassier than when I wear leopard print. What a marvellous skirt and love how you've kept the rest of the outfit fairly simple to let the skirt do all the talking!

  11. If I'd bought that skirt in NYC, the city I most want to visit, I would treat like a treasure too:).  I absolutely LOVE the cut and fabric – it's gorgeous on you! xo

  12. what a cool outfit for a cool day, patti! you look fantastic from tip to toe. i love animal print mixed with neutrals and i love your cute boots. 

  13. Your outfit looks warm and cozy but without the bulk. You make me think that I should try an animal print (I don't know why I never have!)

  14. Patti- that skirt is the cat's meow! LOVE it! I know how hard it can be finding a good outfit when you're in move mode, but you are doing a superb job rocking the casa-bah while transitioning. Rawr!

  15. Love the skirt, and I love the way you've styled it with a brown belt. Subtle, but it have more warmth than all black and white. Beautiful outfit!

  16. Spotty dotty fab! I love how perfectly your ring goes with it. I'm also sad about how warm the weather has been. I probably won't be seeing much of my very heavy winter gear. Plus the horrible Ick that's been going around is much worse with the weather bouncing back and forth. What happened to winter?!

  17. Patti~ya know, I just love your blog so much!  I love this brilliant "Visible Monday" and I find all of your posts are still interesting and insightful.  Thanks!

  18. I love this look Patti!!  It is super cool, flattering, and fun…you look great!
