Well, this is not exactly a rocker outfit, but it inspires me. I think it’s the faux-leather thrifted pencil skirt that started my rock and roll attitude today. That, and red lipstick, and a messy head of curls, via a fun hairpiece. The black pajama shirt is a recent acquisition and it’s getting a lot of wear. I love the easy fit and the white piping.
I don’t get out dancing enough. I think I still have the music in me. Here we are, Stayin’ Alive:

Hi Patti, what a lovely skirt – yay! And rocking it! Yes, you’re talking to someone who saw the Rolling Stones live at my local cinema before they were famous and sooooo young! Speaking of those 60+++ Stones I think we should all start including the 70+ in our lists, don’t you? I mean they’re also Staying Alive!!!! Have a great week, Patti!
Right you are, Penny. I’m just a handful of years from 70, and how those years are flying! You saw the Stones in their youth – how exciting! Thanks for coming by and stay fabulous, xox.
OMG, Patti, I used to have boots just like that—this post is taking me down memory lane! Love how you’ve styled them with the pajama top and leather skirt!

Patti, you are so inspiring! I haven’t worn boots like those since I was in high school, I think I need to revisit them. You absolutely ROCK!
Thanks Pam, for your kind words and for coming by! xox
A big YES to wearing whatever you like! And wow! I love your skirt WITH the Docs!…the disco photo is so fab!
Thank you Suzanne. Your handbag round-up is beautiful! xox
Most definately rocking it Patti and you certainly have the dance moves. Many thanks for hosting Patti , keep on dancing.
Thank you dear Jill! Loving your Moyuru dress and head-wrap today – stay cool. xox
Such a dichotomous look that I love of course! The pj top with the leather pencil skirt is stellar and it fits into that created disco image! You are rocking it for sure!
Thanks so much, Elle. I love seeing your outfit on the streets of NYC – that jacket is exquisite! xox
Oh, rock on, Patti! Your badassery shines, in the best possible way, my floral Docs sister!
Thank you so much for hosting Visible Monday, my dear.
Thank YOU for bringing your fabulous self over to VM. Your cowgirl dress is ace. Hope you are feeling better right at this moment, xox.
See Patti, you ARE a rock star! love the pic. Loe the curly hair, and the pencil skirt is fab. I love combat boots myself, so these DM are sweet!
Aww, thanks, Jess. Your round-up of colorful coats is a pleasure! xox
Thank you for hosting! I love your boots!
Thanks Debbie! I’m voting for your skinny black belt with the checked shirt, but no wrong choices. xox
I have to disagree, as I think your outfit does look rock ‘n roll. Fab ‘n fierce! xxx
Thank you Ann. That’s what I’m aiming for : > Have a wonderful week ahead, xox.
Love that outfit! Very rock chic and right up my street. Music makes us all feel so good. I watched Bohemian Rhapsody recently and I’m now more of a queen fan than I was before – their music brought back so many happy memories, growing up. My hubby saw them perform locally when Bohemian Rhapsody was in the UK charts in the 70’s – he said they were awesome and couldn’t get over how thin Freddi Mercury was! Ah memories!
What great memories! I too fell back in love with Queen after seeing BR. And Freddie’s voice – I could listen to him for hours. Love your checked midi today! xox
I agree. Forgot how powerful Freddie’s voice was, fantastic!
Yes, think I’ll get a lot of wear out of that checked skirt. It’s lovely warm wool. Perfect for our freezing weather!
Of course you’re a rock star….at least among us!!
I never thought I’d be wearing a faux leather skirt until my mom made us ones, but aren’t they fabulous?? I love how they are really just a black skirt, yet so modern and hip!
It’s wonderful how talented and generous your mom is! And seeing the three of you together, having fun with fashion, is a highlight of my week, xox.
What a unique eclectic combo. I really love the cut on that skirt.
You need to share more of your dance moves the next time we get together : )
Hope your week is starting off great!
Thanks Suzanne! We shall definitely dance our shoes off. xox
Patti, you are for sure a rock star in your own right! I love that pixabay photo! How fun! And you just reminded me that I have a black pajama style blouse with white piping and a faux leather pencil skirt…I feel an outfit recreation coming on! Thanks for the inspiration and have a fabulous week!
Thanks Shelbee! Your post about forgiveness vs. “festering” was timely and wise. xox
That pj shirt is all sorts of fabulous and you know that I love the boots!
Thanks Debbie! You made it through the blizzard, hooray! xox
That photo made my morning! You rock Patti! x
Thank you, Maria! I really enjoyed your post from London, xox
I wholeheartedly buy this idea:
“Only our brains know how to count years; our style and spirit don’t have an age.”
On this matter it is very advisable to check https://www.biocognitive.com/. Wonderful clinical neuropsychologist Dr. Mario E. Martinez. Really worth getting acquainted with his ideas!
Hi Jolanta, and thanks for the link – lots of informative articles at the site, and a positive view of aging. xox
You rock, Patti!
Thanks Tiina! Loving that floral dress you’re wearing today! xox
love your rockin’ attitude and style! and you look fabulous! those boots and pijama shirt are really cool with the pleather skirt! You totally Rock!
Thanks so much, Sra.! I’d love to have a coffee with you today in the little village you visited, xox
If you wore that outfit with ballerinas or black pumps, you would look businesslike and conservative. Your boots make all the difference.
Speaking of age, have you heard about the Yann Moix flap? Unattractive 50-year-old French novelist says he only dates 20-year-old Asian women because women over 50 are invisible. He is getting bombarded by photos of boobs and butts from 50-year-old women. Heh heh! But most of all he has turned himself into the most reviled man in France.
Thank you TOF. Yes, I’ve read about the dreadful little man, and I love it that 50 year old women are having none of his nonsense! xox
I ve said it at the beginning of the new year, we are the IT girls this year! And look at you! Fabulous!
Hope to see you on my Fancy Friday linkup party!
Thanks Nancy! We are the IT women, and we are loving it. Have a wonderful day, xox.
Love love the outfit Patti, very cool. For the first time I want Doc Martens!
Hi Gail! Thanks for linking up and for your kind words. Love your plaid tights with white booties, xox
That hair piece is spectacular and looks so natural. I am loving the pajama top trend too!
Thanks Kellyann! Enjoy this cool day in Florida, a day for sweaters! xox
Love that outfit!!! That skirt is amazing on you!
Thanks Stephanie, and your OTK boots are fabulous too! xox
You look rocker-like, Patti! I think the Doc Martens add to the fun, as well!
Thanks Kim! Love your yellow jeans and leopard booties, very cool. xox
Your outfit rock, Patti, you look so cool, love it
Thanks Anna. Your day-to-night look is cool too! xox
Fabulous rocker chic! I’m very much into chunky boots with skirts and dresses right now. I love the stage photo…I can definitely see you belting out a rock song like Stevie Nicks or Pat Benatar!
Wow, thanks Emma – Stevie and Pat are some of my idols! Love your lacy dress with boots, and so sorry about the frazzled hair. Maybe a wee trim will save you? xox
I so see you on that stage, and you can sing too if you choose. I love what you’ve done here!! And this is a great outfit for rocking on. I completely agree how our spirit and style stay are age-free. I posted but there’s not really an outfit there. Maybe later in the week I’ll find something. xo
Thanks, Mel – you are the inspiration for my theme! And your tight-pants chronicles are the complete bomb. xox
Love it! Fantastic outfit, great rockster woman hair! You’re a smash onstage, Patti! : )
I was sorting through clothes I’d stored and was about to put one piece in the donation bag because my knee jerk thought was, “I’m too old to wear this.” I thought of this blog right after and the top moved right into the “current closet” pile.
Thanks for always being an inspiration.
Thank YOU, Cee for all your kind words and for digging out the cool fashion. Style is not a number, right? Rock on. xox
This post makes me feel like dancin’! (I wanna dance the night away.) Love your rockin’ outfit and your rockstar scene. Thanks for making me smile all over.
Hi Sherry! I want to dance the night away too. Thank you for coming by and spreading your joyful spirit, xox.
I agree . If it’s Thrifted from East Village it’s cool. Love the stayin’ alive photo with the stage. Perfect
Thanks Anna. I love all the layering options you showed today on your blog, xox.
Yea, you rock Patti, with leather and docs. What more could you ask for? Like your staying alive pose too!
Thanks, dear frozen friend! Bundle up, xox.
OMG I’ve found my favorite Blog
Aww, thanks, Nicki. That makes my day! xox
