Ahh, Florida winter. This weather reminds me why I do like it here, despite my beating heart that lives in the West Village. We’re having a run of low-70-degree days, and that means I can actually wear some tights. And open the windows!

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 decided to layer a favorite Karina dress – the Ruby – under an old faithful studded sweater (similar). The sweater is starting to look worn, and I will miss it when it goes. Just the right weight for Florida winter, and with personality. The bib necklace (sim) was found at a local consignment shop for about $10, and the tall fabric Donald J Pliner boots (sim) I bought in a NYC thrift.


Love the studs on the shoulders, although I’m sure they’re off-trend now. We don’t care about that, do we? Wear what you love.



Not the best exposure, eh? But I like the contrast with the ocean dunes.


Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.

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

    1. Whoever wants to can join in! Just compose a post that includes any outfit, accessory, piece of jewelry, hairstyle, cosmetic or other adornment that makes you feel more confident, alive and visible that day.
    2. Include a link to Not Dead Yet Style somewhere in your post.
    3. Go to the bottom of this post and click on the InLinkz button “Add Your Link”. It should open a new page.
    4. In the “Next Step”, you crop the pic (easy tool) you want to display, and you’re done!

Stay fabulous,

  1. Fabulous sweater, and it looks great over the dress. That’s the beauty of Karina dresses – they are lightweight enough to layer over tights and under a jumper as well as being perfect for Summer. Wishing you a very happy 2017!

  2. Low 70s! geez. Today it was 6, again. But you look lovely. Showing off the fact that you don’t need a coat outside. yeah, bay-bee.

  3. Happy New Year Patti! You look fabulous! I would love to be a snowbird! Some of my friends go south for the winter; check out my post and you’ll see why. I met up with my daughter Jean in Florida (January 2012). It was such a shock to come back to freezing cold Canada after spending warm, sunny days in your beautiful state. *sigh*

    Enjoy the good life!


  4. That truly is the ideal temperature. One of the reasons I liked living on Vancouver Island was because of their mild temperatures. It was never hot or cold, it was pretty much “just right” 80% of the time.

    I like the sweater and the studs. In fact I’ve been thinking about adding some studs to a leather skirt.


  5. My mom is in Florida now too and having cold evenings and nights. It is hard for us to sympathize with her while we’re here in Michigan. At least you get to open your windows! I can’t stand when we can’t do that and, for us, it’s the cold, not the heat, that stops us. Well at least it’s a good week for you to pull out all your cold weather gear!

  6. Oh I envy you… I would live to spend winter somewhere warm. I just got back to Finland, after several weeks away, and I’m fed up with snow already…
    On a different note: studs never go out of style, and you rock!

  7. Beautiful! And I LOVE the studs!! Enjoy your weather! I’m looking forward to visiting my daughter (lives in South Beach) and then my sister (lives outside of Tampa) next month! It’s been 4 degrees last night, and 1 degree tonight!

  8. I still love studs on things Patti – who cares if they’re on trend or not, eh – yours are fab!

    Sorry I haven’t linked up for ages, there have been so many great Sunday night TV shows on lately when your link up goes out that we’ve been watching them and then trying to get straight to bed… I’ve forgotten by the morning! #mybad

  9. Great look, Patti! I can see why you love the sweater so much. It’s always hard for me to part with a favorite sweater; they are not easy to come by…

    Enjoy the Florida winter!

    Thanks for the link up & have a wonderful week!

  10. Love how you layered this dress, and I’m laughing my head off that you put on tights when its low 70’s, that when I bring out my shorts. Looking fabulous as always.

  11. I’m all about cute details and the studs on the shoulders are adorable as you are in them!!

  12. Personally, I love the studded shoulder on your sweater… or on anything really! The more embellishment the better!

    Happy New Year, and thank you as always for hosting, Patti!
