Visible Monday #142: All The Favorite Colors

Welcome to Visible Monday #142! 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.

I wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago, when the daytime temperatures were in the 80’s. Not a day for serious layering, but I did manage a dress-over skirt. This is one of my favorite Karina dresses, a Gala in a fabulous paisley print. Underneath is an olive silk skirt from Talbot’s (similar) and a teal camisole from Adea.

I love the way the colors flow together, including the accents: a bright emerald bangle (similar) and blue suede shoes (similar). For a neutrals kind of woman, this is a bold leap, and it works!

Do you like the artful leaf growing out of my hip?
!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; p = ‘//’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

  1. Missed Visible Monday again. Perhaps I should change my publishing day to Monday instead of Sunday. On the other hand… I have to work on Monday AND fitness class in the evening… Hmm…. Have to think this one over carefully.
    As for your outfit… I had to laugh when you said it was a bold leap for you. As to me it is nice outfit, but I would not call it bold.

  2. Oh dear! Too late for Visible Monday. You are beautiful in blue and adore the dress over skirt. Lovely layers!

  3. What artful layering! That skirt is the perfect length under the dress.
    I've been out of the blogosphere for about a year and it's lovely to see so many who've joined Visible Monday.

  4. I love how the fabrics and the colors flow into your outfit . A very artfull approach to a wrap dress!

  5. I'm impressed that you've managed that little bit of layering in such heat!! Gorgeous colours x

  6. You look stunning in all these blues and greens, Patti! Thank you as always for hosting!

  7. So glad you are back and safe, sound, rested, shopped out, thrilled with yourself and looking like a bazillion bucks in your favorite colors! Thanks for hosting, as always, and know how much we love 'ya! (Look, I got my own row! Will this be your biggest VM yet?)

  8. The blue paisley is soooo pretty, Patti! I'm so envious that your temperatures stay high for so long… do you wanna swap weather for a bit?!

    Thanks for hosting my lovely, have a fab week


  9. Wowwwwwwwwwwww thank you soooooooooooo much dear Patti for joining our humble Share-in-Style. I do hope you will become part of the family of share-in-Style from now on

  10. I love that dress-over-skirt combo! I haven't been bold enough to try that yet, but you pulled it off so beautifully (and seamlessly – I wouldn't have ever guessed there's a skirt under that dress!) that you've now inspired me to try it! So many possibilities…. πŸ™‚

  11. Very skillfully done! The little peek of skirt under the dress is just darling. And the colors are lovely on you.

  12. I dont often have a style post, and when I do I'm so excited to post on Visible Mondays! Blue is definitely your colour, and now i'm off to read some new-to-me blogs!

  13. Oh Patti! You're a gal after my heart…blue and green and paisley and ooooh all things I love! You look fabulous, and I hope you're aren't too anxious for your neutrals! Thanks for hosting Visible Monday!

  14. Thank you for hosting and after being a longtime reader, I'm linking up for the first time! It's taken a while to pluck up the courage too! You look lovely in those shades of blue and green, such a stunning combination.

  15. I just love these colours on you, Patti, and the print. You look gorgeous!
    Feeling a little envious of your warm temperatures though… xxxx

  16. Beautiful dress, love the colour and the pattern πŸ™‚ thanks for hosting …

  17. I love wrap dresses–so classic. And the paisley is great too. I'm wearing blue shoes in my post today too :

  18. That dress is so pretty. I love paisley and especially in blues. Love the royal blue wedges also. You look fantastic, Patti.

    Happy November doll!

  19. I also love how these colors run so smoothly together. Quite a brilliant idea layering over the skirt, it added so much depth to the dress.

  20. Patti loving the blue and the paisley pattern. You look great! Thank you for hostessing.. hugs, Celia M. (HHL)

  21. Love love Love what you've done here! I never would've thought to layer a dress over a skirt. Just fabulous and a bit quirky. Love it!

  22. How gorgeous! And these colours suit you so well. You could also wear your newly adjusted bracelet with its new stone. As a colour person, this is right up my alley, with the lovely paisley pattern. Very brave for you to adapt to colours! Using all one colour or analogous colours in an outfit is a good way to ease into the colour world πŸ™‚
    I have shared a post about my thrifted scarves, and wearing a lovely blue silk shirt that would go well with your blue shoes!

  23. We are having another warm streak here in Northern CA. I haven't quite rotated out all of the warm weather clothes. Thank you for hosting this wonderful linkup. I'm in!

  24. Perfect colors for you Patti! So happy to have Visible Monday back! Thanks for all you do.

  25. Ah, so pretty Patti, I love it, you look a vision! My favourite colour too. And yes, I do like the leaf!x

  27. What a lovely look Patti, I love all shades of blue on you, it really really suits you! Great look πŸ™‚ hugs xxx

  28. Beautiful paisley… and blue / green / turquoise again, looks lovely. And I envy your weather: it was snowing here on Thursday (nothing left to show for it now, though…)

  29. this is some beautiful layering Patti, it is especially nice to see such pretty colours and layers on you, when it is dismal here in the uk.. rain rain and really cold! You are like a breathe of fresh air πŸ™‚ Thanks as always for being such a wonderful hostess! XX

  30. Green and blue is one of my all time favourite colour combos, especially for blonds. It is always wonderful to see you wearing colour.

    You really do need to get that hip trimmed though ; )


  31. I really love this outfit on you, the colours and how you styled it! I've also decided to add more green to my basic neutral colours and it looks wonderful like this.
