Orla Kiely Early Bird Print in Granite and Prussian Blue

Here's Orla Kiely's latest take on her classic Stem print - the Early Bird print, which features our favorite repeating pattern along with cute little birds every few stems (this print reminds me a lot of the SS15 Tall Flower Stem print, except the Flower Spots are now replaced with tiny birds). This collection is so adorable, and it's available in the colorways Granite and Prussian Blue, the former being my favorite of the two.













Orla Kiely Embossed Stem in Fawn and Olive Green

Here's Orla Kiely's latest Embossed Stem collection for the Pre-Fall 2016 season. These bags and accessories are available in the colorways Fawn (which we've seen before in the SS15 Sixties Stem Punched collection) and Olive Green, which complement each other, as well as the rest of the latest pieces, quite well (check out my previous posts on the  Stripe Rosebud Print and Passion Flower Textured Vinyl to see the other pieces from Orla Kiely's upcoming season).



It seems that the Jeanette Bag is now a permanent part of the collection, which I'm so happy for because it's my favorite!

This new style reminds me a lot of this season's Sixties Stem Punched Leather Iris Bag, but it's a slight upgrade in my opinion - the strap has more options for adjusting and overall just looks sturdier and well-made, and I like how the straps are attached to d-rings inside the bag as opposed to being attached to the sides with studs.




Orla Kiely Olive and Orange Tents and Camping Accessories at Halfords

Here's the part of Orla Kiely's Olive and Orange range at Halfords that I was most excited for - the tent and camping accessories...and I don't even go camping. But I absolutely LOVE the coolbag and picnic rug, both items that I would use whenever I take my son to the beach or park (please let me know if there are any kinds souls living in the UK that would be willing to ship these to me in the US!)

Coolbag in Moss Green and Pink
This is probably my favorite print from the whole range - both colorways are so pretty!

Picnic Rug in Moss Green and Pink


If ever I go camping, this is the way I'm gonna do it.

I wouldn't be opposed to just setting this up in my living room as decor or a play area for my son - I'm sure my husband would LOVE that :)

Orla Kiely Olive and Orange Cycling Accessories at Halfords

What's great about this collection is that, if the bicycles aren't within your budget or you simply don't need a new bike right now, you can still dress up any bike in Orla Kiely's Olive and Orange cylcing accessories now available at Halfords. Check out the pieces below and click here if you haven't yet seen my previous post featuring the bikes.

Quite adorable!





I don't really need this bell, yet somehow it's one of my favorites pieces from the collection.
