I’m not actually wearing anything blue today, but as you can see, I am singing the blues on the back of my tank top. I gotta tell you, getting dressed with big old pins sticking out of your forearm is challenging. Tank tops are great because you can step into them and gently pull them over all the sore spots.
|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. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!|
I bought this top at one of our local blues bars, and I enjoy wearing it, as it looks sedate in the front and party in the back. The fabulous print skirt (similar) was thrifted on my trip to Toronto with Suzanne and Ally, and it has a delightfully easy elastic waist. I had to have someone help me tie my gladiator sandals (sim). But other than that I dressed myself like a big girl today. : >

Here are some cheery pieces for countering the blues:
You look perfectly chock full of pizzazz Patti! That edgy back speaks to you being a fun lady and your great hair confirms it!
Oh sorry to have missed the link up. Still wanted to let you know how much I like your picture and the shoes you are wearing with the outfit Patti. So sorry about your accident. Speedy recovery!!! xo Sabina
This is a totally fab outfit for any day! Good job on putting it on by yourself, you are a determined woman! And I know what you mean about the shoes – those are tricky! Honestly, I sometimes ask my husband or daughter to buckle my shoes. 🙂
You made the sling look so stylish and chic! Love this skirt and how you paired it with a navy tank top, and accessorized it with a navy sling. Get well soon xoxoxo
Wow, what a cool top, love the detail on the back. Hope you’re on the mend Patti. x Thanks for the link up. Jacqui
I was noticing how many people are saying the same thing I am thinking–you have made your temporary disability chic! I’ve always found that looking good when I am confronted with a temporary disability or just plain don’t feel good has a way of lifting one’s spirits–hope you feel better soon!
Hope you will better! Amazing outfit! I love the cool text placement!
Very cool outfit, you poor Patti. And this time you are lucky with the climate you are in. Imagine layers of sweaters in a cold climate to keep you warm. That would be a horror to get dressed.
Cool skirt and tank and cute shoes. You are cool.
YOu have really great shoulders! thanks for hosting, get better soon.
Patti, I hope you feel better soon! Despite this, I love the mix of the tank with the cool logo and your pretty floral skirt! Sounds like a fun place I would hang out. I love blues!
Have a great week!
Gotta love a surprise party in the back! And that skirt…all kinds of fabulous!
You’re rocking it with the blues, Patti. I love that demure front and then, bam, on the back. And the pretty swirly florals are great with this edgy tank. I’m glad you’ve found a way to dress single-handedly. And your sling camouflage adds to the look. Lots of healing hugs coming at you…
Fabulously stylish and cool despite the unwanted “accessory”. Hope you’re feeling as bright and beautiful as you look. xxx
You look beautiful despite your current challenge, and you inspire us during this period of recovery. You wear your sling with panache!
I hop your arm heals soon beautiful Patti. Love the fun tan and those sandals.
You’ve almost made the sling part of your outfit here! It must be challenging to get dressed under the circumstances, but you succeeded in not only choosing comfortable pieces but looking great as well. xxx
Very cute outfit! I love the skirt and graphic tee look and the twist you put on yours with the graphics on the back. How fun! Peace!
Patti, this skirt is to die for! I absolutely love it! And that top is magnificent. I am sending lots of healing vibes your way! I hope everything is healing nicely. You are looking fabulous…disability and all!
Postive proof that one need not let some little ol’ sling get in the way of looking fabulous! I remember that skirt from your post on your Toronto trip. Love that print. And the sandals are adorable. Am jealous you have blues bars up in Cocoa. We don’t have any down by me and I love blues and jazz. Have you ever been to Heidi’s Jazz Club?
You can even make a sling look good!
A bang-up-to-the-minute outfit – I love the unexpected slogan on the back of the top! Your selection of goodies to chase away the blues is seriously tempting, particularly the blue swirly skirt and the blue/yellow flowery skirt.
I hope your arm will feel better soon!
You can meet any fashion challenge head on – looks great! Hope your arm heals quickly xx
This outfit rocks and you styled the sling to look like it is part of your top..brilliant!
Love your skirt and shoes too, cute look!
No matter the challenge, you still look fabulous, Patti. This just shows how a little adversity can lead to great inspiration.
You still look stylish, your sling matches your outfit, very cool! Hope you’re feeling a little better every day!
If not for Lucy Dawn comment about the sling, I would also thought that this is one cold shoulder top, Patti. So sorry for your injury that clearly didn’t dampen your spirit, you look lovely as ever in this cool top
Patti I’ve missed a couple of weeks… so sorry to hear you’ve got an injury!! I totally sympathise because in the last few days my leg injury from 18 months ago has reared its ugly head, so I’m having trouble walking again. It’s (literally) such a pain!! Hope it heals quickly x
And thank you for the link up, and I love the top – such a cool design, I love it!!
U look so cool!!!!
I like your tank top! Great outfit!
And I can only imagine how challenging it must be to get dressed… Or do most things we must do throughout the day…
I hope you’ll have a good week and that you’ll heal quickly…
Only you could make a sling look so chic … at first I thought it was a one shoulder, cold shoulder top! 😀
This is a great reminder of all the things we take for granted daily…like being able to dress ourselves.
This outfit rocks!
You just don’t realize how our of commission you are without the use of a hand/arm??
I could see how mumus would be so convenient—ha ha!!
Wishing you a speedy recovery Patti. I hope your getting spoilt while your like that! xx
Well actually … your sling is blue, isn’t it? I do love the tank. Hope your arm is healing well and fast and wishing you a wonderful week!
Alex – Funky Jungle
Be well dear heart! You look great and still have the best hair
on the planet!!!
Sending hugs, Mimi
Oh Patti, you poor thing! You manage to look very stylish despite having your arm in a sling. Get well soon! xx
Patti, you look very chic, even with your temorary disability. I wish a Kansas City establishment had a top as cool as that, I would jump at it.
Love this outfit!!
