A Casual Friday Outfit and A Visible Monday Reminder

I work in a casual office, and denim skirts/nice jeans are always acceptable. For some reason, I'm programmed to make Fridays just a little more casual than other days. So here's one of my workhorses, a denim pencil skirt. You can't see it too well, but I wore a tank with a sequined neckline! And kept my floral cardi on for day, whipping it off at 5:00 PM for a relaxing glass of wine with the husband.

I didn't add much jewelry because the sequins, belt, and floral print kept the look interesting enough. Just my favorite Target bracelet and some simple drop earrings (not visible because my hair was totally out of control at photo time). I think I'll repeat this outfit in the cooler weather with tights and boots.


Sequined tank: Rue21, Cardigan: East 5th, Belt: GAP, thrifted
Skirt: Lucky, thrifted, Shoes: Naturalizer


Good news! We've made Visible Monday much easier to participate in. We added some nifty linking and picture cropping tools that are so easy for the user, you'll hardly know you did it.

Just do your usual post on Monday with something in it that makes you feel wonderful/visible. It could be clothing, shoes, a handbag, jewelry or a lipstick color . . . whatever moves you. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style somewhere in your post, so your readers can find you here.

After you've published your post, come back here and click on the cool little linky at the bottom of the page. It will look like this:




Type in the URL of your post, not your general blog URL. Then the name of your blog, then your email (the email will NOT be displayed).

The program will automatically take you to a selection of photos from your post - how cool is that? Pick the one you like, crop it using the easy cropping tool, and you're done. You can post anytime up till midnight on Monday. I heart technology.

  2. I am a huge fan of denim skirts--those the one you are wearing is definitely more interesting than the one in my closet just now. I will have something for you on Monday...and thanks for making it so easy.

  5. I really like this look. I have several cardigans but they are just too much for the heat right now. I think you are perfectly accessorized and the shoes are really pretty.
