Welcome to Visible Monday #94! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the easy how-to.
Feeling Springy today in the World’s Easiest Dress. This dress has no buttons, zippers, Velcro or snaps. If you have a sewing machine you could probably whip one up in half an hour.
I had to buy it though, b/c I have no machine and anyway it was 50% off at Modcloth (similar in simplicity), and so cute. My delayed gratification skills, they are lacking. The dress is a little short for my style, hence the tights. I might wear it over another skirt later in the season or even over jeans, with a low slung belt.
Hello again, and farewell, Dr. Marten boots. I guess you’ll be hibernating for the rest of the warm season. A couple of neutral bangles and my double-charm necklace finish the look. I felt so free and easy (not that kind of easy) all day.
|I think I’d like more simple dresses like this for summer.|
|. . . but I don’t care to show off my knees.|
|The heart is very old, the “G” is new. Nice together, yeah?|

lovely, I really like the print. It looks perfect for warmer weather. Hugs
You look like the hostess with the mostest again, dear Patti. Thanks for hosting and giving us all a place to show out. You do look like Spring herself! So pretty in your print dress … simple can be astonishing!
Thanks for hosting Visible Monday Patti.
As for your outfit: I think it looks lovely but I am curious to know how you combine warm feet in boots with a sleeveless summerdress. Isn't it either too hot or too cold? I am always puzzled by such combinations.
Patti, I love your title. I have been in the mood for easy lately also. I love the print on that dress.
I am so late to the party. You look like effortless chic, Patti. You also make me want to order from Modcloth!
Very cute summer dress! I love the easy stuff!
Just came across your blog…love the visible Monday, SUPER fun!
What a cute dress! So simple, but stylish!
You're easy like a MONDAY morning! That song is in my head now.. That dress is lovely on you & sounds like it was a bargain too. I am tempted to run up something a bit like it on my machine. The print makes it special. Shame if your Docs have to hibernate now, they look so good with the dress?
Cute dress – I like the colour as well as the pattern!

Love the dress, right up my alley. And you could knock it up easily, if you wanted to. And style it up to – as you have. You could even wear pantaloons with it Patti!
I love your post title, and I can absolutely apply it to my title today, too (mine is "Birthday Suit" but also in a totally wholesome way 😉
I am loving the easy, flowy style of this dress. After you mentioned anyone with a sewing machine could make one, I became inspired to try to make one! Though, my sewing machine and I don't understand each other very well, so I'm not sure how it'll turn out.
Also, I think the dress will also look beautiful sans tights. I don't know why you wouldn't want your knees to show. I can't imagine that there's a damn thing wrong with them, woman!
Love the print! Comfy and colorful is the perfect combo.
Thanks for this awesome "Visible Monday" This is my first go at it. What wonderful company to share with. Fantastic look for you and not too short, in my opinion.
dear patti, my english is very bad…because: 🙂
A very nice spring dress and the colours a ''mine'' too. Have a good time. Sunny
Thanks for hosting Visible Monday Patti! I love the print on this dress, and I hope you show us an outfit wearing it as a tunic over white jeans. Aw, the booties are going to hibernation. At least something to look forward to in the fall.
Thank you Patti for you visible Monday. You look great again.
Lovely you are Patti
Too bad that you have to put away to amazing boots
Have a wonderful Visible Monday
Hugs and love!
I want to – thanks for the encouragement : >
Love the dress on you. I love the print!
Gorgeous print on a beautiful girl! I love this. It would be pretty belted too for a different look.
Absolutely adore the print on your dress
A lovely dress, simple but so flattering and versatile.
hi patti . what a lovely dress you are wearing. i love easy style. love lucyx
Wow, such a pretty dress! The colour and print is just gorgeous, and suits your colouring beautifully. Hope you've got a great week ahead, and thanks, as always!
Hi Patti- I agree, this is such a casual chic look, the print is lovely on your dress and I'm sure this will be a real versatile item in your wardrobe. Have a great week! Sharon-MyStyle
So glad to be able to join you from Berlin.
The dress is not only simple and easy but also has a fabulous pattern. I love it! It's the kind of dress I would prefer to wear on a warm day. You think it can be sewes in 1/2 hour. Perhaps I will try it, when I find a cute pattern like yours.
This is a perfect way to wear 1 dress in 2 ways! While this ensemble is casual and chic, sans leggings and with colored heels would be a stunner! Not too short at all!
Aw, that dress isn't too short .. you can do it girl !!
Patti, what a fun, fun dress. This would make a perfect one to wear over capri's or longer shorts with sandals. I would even use it as a swim suit coverup. In fact, I think I just might need to do some modcloth shopping. And, I agree with you, so much easier to shop than sew.
Oh I am SO with you on this one Patti, I absolutely cannot bear too many nipped in waists and tightness when it comes to summer frocks. Floaty, floaty, floaty is the word for our humid summers 🙂
Love the dress. I realized today that I might be saying farewell to all of my closed toed shoes for the season as well. Spring took a while to start, but I think it is pretty much in full bloom now.
I love your dress! I feel much the same way about short dresses. I'd much rather wear tights or leggings underneath. Your dress would look great with jeans too! Thanks for hosting Vis Monday!
Love the dress and think you could wear it with leggings and ballet flats for another version…
Great print, Patti. And that dress looks very comfortable and lightweight!
Great idea, I never considered that option.
I love that dress! Definitely going to check it out… I'm all about dresses lately too 🙂

I love those boots! Do you have to put them up? 😉
I love a good jammie dress and this one looks awesome on you!
Wear capri leggings under it!
Thought I'd make one last Visible Monday before I disappear for a while. That is such a cute dress and such a lovely pattern. I have one of those pull on dresses in a patterned print and I love it precisely because it is so easy to wear. Those Doc Martens boots have served you very well indeed!
Easy styling! My favorite kind of dress. Toss it on, and it's perfect. I also love it with those boots. I've never actually purchased from Modcloth before.
Patti, this is a perfect, simple summer dress! It doesn't look too short, but you could prob. wear a pretty slip underneath if you wanted longer look? "Peek a boo" slip is what I call it. 🙂
The print on that dress is fabulous! I'm glad we don't have to put our boots away quite yet…
This is a great dress Patti…love it with colored tights. I think the length is perfect and you are right it is so nice to have easy fashionable options. Thanks for hosting!!
The blues are brilliant on you, Patti! Thanks for having us over for another Visible Monday! I was sorry to miss last week, but today I am lucky 13, hooray!
I can't believe you got that dress through Mod Cloth. I'm addicted to their fit and flare dresses myself.
I love the blues on you.
I love this dress!!! Very cute–and I could see it with a belt over jeans!!!

You're speaking my language with that cute little tunic dress! Looks great
on you…I usually go for tights or leggings, too. It's sort of sad putting
away the boots, but warmth and sandals here we come!
Patti, blue is definitely your color and you look like a delicate beauty in that dress! I envy you for being able to wear something so simple – and making it look like a million bucks! 😉
This is a gorgeous dress and so simple to throw on! My kind of dress – you look great, blues with a rich brown accent is one of my favs too.
I love easy dresses or skirt/top combinations during warm weather. This blue dress is perfect for summer. Maybe you COULD wear another skirt under it. Or capri leggings either. Debbie @ ilovemylemonadelife.com

What a pretty dress – I love that print! And I can imagine it will be so comfy in hot weather, very loose (in a good way). I also like the charms together. It took me a while to realize I could mix and match necklace charms and chains, so I can get a better length on some things now. Duh!
Happy Monday Eve!
Lovely print on the dress. I am a huge Modcloth fan, too!
That is a super cute dress Patti! I think blue is a great color for you.
