I’m a total cat lady who loves dogs, so they often appear on my apparel. And how wonderful is it to finally pull on a lightweight doggy sweater in humid Florida!

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 don’t remember where I bought this cotton-knit doggy sweater (similar), maybe from J. Crew – it has that look. Don’t you love a darling schnauzer with glasses, and a tennis sweater? The slim skirt was a great thrift find, by Philosophy; it’s super comfortable and versatile (sim). It has a subtle red plaid, hard to see in these pics, that makes it perfect for print-mixing.

Faux pearls (sim) are always a nice touch, whether sincere or ironic. I wear these a lot. Ditto the black leather platforms (sim). Below I have finally captured one of the ubiquitous parking meters in my hands – now what do I do with it? : >



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