Visible Monday #126: I Wear My Cat On My Chest

Welcome to Visible Monday #126! 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.

You all know I'm a crazy cat lady. And I am not ashamed. Some of the best people I've known have been cats. And, since my office has a casual dress "code" (I don't think I've even heard that word, in 14 years), a cat sweater is perfectly OK.

This cute one is from ASOS (similar), all cotton, and really fun to wear. I teamed it with a thrifted black skirt from Banana Republic, new tights from Target and my favorite Cydwoq booties. Cat ladies unite!


My cats would never wear a sweater with my picture on it. So who's smarter, eh?


Now, let's see what you're wearing, 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. Please leave a comment, too, so we know you had a good time.
  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!

Oh hey! Not Dead Yet Style has a Facebook page! Please check it out when you have a moment: Facebook Page.

  1. If there's one thing I love it's a fellow animal lover that's not ashamed to declare themselves as such! What a great sweater - does it come in a "dog" style, because that'd be the one for me!
    Cuter than cute, Patti!

  6. Hey.... cat woman. :-) Nice pullover. But the shoes... wow. They really look great.
    Last week I visited an arts and crafts fair (incl. a fashion show), so I decided to wear this shirt printed with a dress form. Have a good time and an easy start into the new week.

  9. I like cats and this sweater, dear Patti, is so much fun ! It's really lovely and I especially love how you paired it with matching blue tights ! Oh, and I am sure your cats would love a sweater with your face on it to wear, LOL ! Thanks for hosting Visible Monday, linking up with my latest post and also coming back with a new one soon, thinking you'll like that cause it's a bit like your spring uniform, you'll see ;) Kisses

    I can surely understand the animal passion.. my MIL is crazy over owl and she has everything owl! Sweaters, bags, keychains, slippers.. everytime I see something owl, it always reminds me of her :)

  11. Such a cute sweater (I laughed at your comment about the cats refusing to wear one with you on it!) but actually, I was also admiring your gorgeous hair, the bright blue tights and those fabulous boots. You look great, Patti!
    As always, you are the hostess with the mostest, so thank you for having us. xxx

  28. Your top is adorable! I would probably be a cat lady if my husband wasn't allergic to cats. I hope you don't mind that my post isn't outfit oriented .. I went to an exercise class that left me so sore that I can barely pull up my pants .. TMI?

  41. Oh that's cute. When I was a little girl my mum used to sew my clothes and she made me a shirt with an embroidered cat. I am seriously thinking of asking her to make me another one!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Cats are just the best, aren't they? We feed them, clean after them, love them... and they don't even want to wear a sweater with our portraits! And then we just adore and love them even more. :) Very fun and happy look! You look beautiful and mischievous! :)

  51. ASOS has become one of my fave go-to online stores. That sweater is so adorable and that's saying something since I'm more a dog person. It's the boots that make the outfit for me, though. Lurve!

  59. Heehee so true Patti, what cat worth their Whiskers would wear an Owner Sweater? But does that stop us from being obsessed with kitties? er no!! I'm very much taken with your gorgeous boots! xo

  60. Don't mean to put a damper on the "cat" party, but I am looking at this as a memorial to my Toby, born 17 yrs. ago in Port St. Lucie, who went to kitty heaven yesterday, way out here in Idaho. As usual, you always look fabulous,.... in your cat sweater.

  65. Hee!! Kitty shirt. Whether the cat is on the shirt or just the cat fur, I'm sure I wear a lot of cats. (mostly their fur, they love clean laundry)

    Hi...I found this blog poking around the internet, but I want to say that you are so purty and adorable! And you have such a cool sense of style! I think I'm secretly kind of adventurous when it comes to style, but I always end up doing stuff kind of halfway, and I often just end up looking not quite put-together, or something. But I LOVE your creative and colorful style, which somehow seems funky yet sophisticated and fun yet age-appropriate. I was compelled to comment.
