I love a shirt or sweater with a message, and I’ve collected a few of them, including “Petit Chien,” “Passenger” and “Bad Ass Blogger“. I avoid politics on my clothes, even though I am a strongly opinionated progressive, because I don’t want to get in arguments with strangers, or get a pie in the face.  : >

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

Today I’m celebrating feeling free: free to speak up, to dress as we like, to break fashion “rules” and to sing loudly. Free is one of my favorite words – everybody loves a free lunch – but it also means unconstrained by unreasonable rules and restrictions. Like wearing graphic sweaters when you’re 61!

I bought this top retail (shock!) from Nordstrom (similar) – I do love their free shipping and returns – and paired it with a thrifted pencil skirt (sim). The skirt has a dark plaid that’s hard to see here. My booties are by funky brand Cydwoq (sim) and I’ve had them for years. Love the pointy toe.

It’s a beautiful Florida winter day and I’m feeling free.

The back of the sweater finishes the thought.

  1. Yes, graphical tees and sweaters are so fun. And I hear you about wearing your politics on your sleeve. I have an anti trump button I got at the woman’s march in NYC and sometimes get worried when I wear it on the one coat it is still on but so far that has not happened.

  2. Ahhhh you truly are a free spirit, Patti, and you inspire me to be a lot less rigid, less tightly wound up 🙂 you do that rather often, actually, I just don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it 🙂

  3. haha…but what if it was a lemon merengue pie? Thats delicious ;-)))) No I hear you. And bad ass blogger? Slays! I got 2 statement shirts I designed “Yes, I’m a fashion blogger” and one that rhymes in German. But in English it translates into something like: dare to be daring..

    Love your “japanese” clean style. You know its my favorite on you. Wearing something in that direction as well today. xo Sabina

  4. Fabulous graphic sweater. I thought it looked great from the front, but then when you turned around it became even better. It describes you perfectly.

  5. I love this top, Patti, front and back. The whole thing is sweet and bad at the same time, in the best possible way. And the pointy toes are fantastic. Thanks for hosting this linkup.

    • Hejsan! Vilka underbara recept du bjuder pÃ¥!Jag är helt ny inom FF, börjar idag och har aldrig vägt eller räknat kring maten tigeJari.dag provade att ta en äggvita i gröten, sedan 30g hallon och 30g blÃ¥bär, men hur mycket keso/kvarg ska jag isÃ¥fall lägga till? Hade ca 1/2 dl lättmjölk i ocksÃ¥. Sedan funderar jag lite kring kokosolja, är det okay att använda? Familjen och jag brukade nämligen ha i lite i gröten för trevlig smak (:

  6. Such a great message and how fitting it is for you. You always look like the epidemy of a free spirit and staying true to yourself. Thank you for this great example of how to work a message garment and as always, thank you for the inspirations to stay visible.


  7. How much do I love that sweater and your spirit! : P

    I’m missing the fab Arizona weather although I did get out for a walk today as it was a balmy 13 C.


  8. I adore a cute graphic and I love that this has such a cute writing on the front and on the back. You’re Adorable!
