Visible Monday - the last days of summer

Visible Monday #12, created by Patti@NotDeadYetStyle , started out to be a way for women who have felt invisible to share outfits that make them feel great. It has been a wonderful way to get to know a number of very fashionable ladies who are not at all invisible. I cannot believe it that this is the 12th time we have done this!

I didn't go anywhere today, but I wanted to wear this outfit before I put it away for the winter and it does make me feel visible. I would love to have a closet big enough to not have to switch the summer and winter clothes, but I don't so I spent time switching things around. It is always fun to revisit clothes I haven't seen for months and think about how I will wear them this fall and winter.

The brass pieces are of elephants. Ros Hommerson - ebay

 In looking at this outfit, I think I should've worn longer jeans as these just look too short with these shoes. I have been used to wearing sandals all summer and I did not even think about the proportions of the jeans with the shoes.

Big bold gold accessories are on trend for fall and winter. For some reason, I haven't had much in the way of yellow gold jewelry. Fortunately, in the 70's big bold gold was popular so it has been fairly easy to pick up some pieces for not much money.  What new trend are you planning on rocking this fall and winter?


  1. I'm sooooo ready to pull out some of my autumn clothes! I love that violet color on you! You're right about the jeans....the fit is great....they could stand to be a bit shorter or a bit longer. or maybe with a pair of heels. Regardless, you look WONDERFUL! Big hug to you! ~Serene

  2. You look so wonderful in the blues and purples. This is such a nice look, and those shoes with the elephants really add a fun touch.

  3. I love the elephants on the shoes, I have not seen those before. That color jacket suits you beautifully, very flattering to your cool-ness. We don't need to rotate out our winter clothes here in Florida -- I just stick my three sweaters in a drawer! : > Thanks for participating in Visible Monday.

  4. If you hadn't have mentioned about the length of the pants, which have an interesting hem detail, I wouldn't have thought they should be longer. They'd nicely cut, not flared but not too skinny either.

    I like the look of the slender-toed flat shoe with a little exposed foot/ankle. It's still pretty warm and I think showing a little skin is appropriate.

  5. I need a big bold chain link GOLD necklace. Have an outfit I'll post later this week that could have used it. My husband thinks it's silly to have seasonal clothes, but still I organize them that way.

  6. I just can't get into the gold trend. I'm a silver gal through & through
