Maxi and Cardi

Vertical striped dress Adriana Marimekko, fabulous option in blue hues 

Rust long cardigan Loft, similar here Brown H vintage hand bag in transit

Home grown vintage brown leather belt Liz Claiborne, similar

A long a dress and a cardigan was my choice of wear. My favourite part of this outfit is actually the belt because it's home grown vintage. I must have been 20 years old when I bought it and its still around, although as you may notice it barely fits. 

Do you have any home grown vintage belts?

The belt and cardi work so well with the colours in the dress! :)

I lost my belts in the move! I thought they were in storage with a few other boxes of my things but they haven't turned up now we've unpacked eveything. I had a belt similar to yours I wanted to wear the other day but nope, can't find any more than the 3 I have. 2 I kept out for pregnancy and one I recently bought, all the rest have vanished! I might have accidentally donated them? But I had a couple belts from my mum in the box so I wouldn't have just donated it!

Hope that you are having a lovely weekend :) We went to a birthday party yesterday that was a lot of fun :)

That dress is stunning! I love the bright colors and how the cardigan makes it work as a transitional piece!

I really, really love this dress - the pattern is wonderful and you seriously look like 10 feet tall in it!

Oh, now THAT is a Marimekko! What a fantastic dress, and it looks amazing on you with the belt and cardigan, Lorena!

I don't have much that is older than 12-13 years, because I used to be so much bigger before that time. I didn't keep much from prior to that, although most of the vintage accessories I "liberated" from my mom's closet in the 80s when I was in high school, I guess you could call them homegrown!

Lorena. this dress is absolutely stunning! I love the colors and the stripes. I have a brown leather belt from the Gap that I bought on clearance over 20 years ago for $5 and it is still going strong. I guess if it’s 20 years old, it is vintage. Thanks so much for linking up with me!

I loved the sentiments behind the belt and all the luscious Autumn hues of this look. Such a stunning maxi dress!

P.S. It was so nice catching up, dear Lorena. =)
