Orla Kiely Bags at Burlington

If you missed out on the Orla Kiely diaper bags that were sold at Target, you're in luck - looks live leftover stock was purchased and is now at Burlington. They are available online (I haven't seen them in stores yet) and are on sale for $19.99.

Orla Kiely FW16 Mainline: Spot Square Triangle Print Vinyl in Blush

The Spot Square Triangle print returns this season on a smaller scale and in a beautiful Blush colorway with pops of yellow - love! 

This Bucket Bag is a new design for this season and it's my favorite! It features a flap closure and contrasting yellow leather card pocket on the back (see below).

The Double Poppy Bag is a bit updated this season - the detachable matching leather bag is now a bit longer so that the pop of yellow shows through underneath - nice little detail!

The Small Jeanie is a close favorite behind the Bucket Bag - I think I just like how the yellow card holder is on the front :)

This bag is so cute and ladylike.

Orla Kiely FW16 Mainline: Color Bloc Croc Leather

New arrivals to Orla Kiey's Color Bloc Croc Leather collection are now available online (see my previous post on the Square Bonnie Bag here). The styles are a mix of fun and sophisticated - see all the pieces below!

A slightly more casual version of the Square Bonnie Bag, minus the chain strap so you can wear this style cross body.

Does the Cream colorway of this bag remind anyone else of a sunny side up egg? :)

Orla Kiely's Dusky Pink is my favorite hue for this season, and the Square Poppy Bag in this color is lots of fun with its fur detailing - this style might be a bit too bold for me, but I still appreciate its unique look. Also, this season's Square Poppy Bag has a bit more depth to it - I have the Square Flower Appliqué bag from last season and it's so flat that I can barely fit anything in it. I'm happy to see that this version is a little more roomy.

I love the Multi colorway of this wallet! The mustard yellow is such a nice backdrop for the cream and dusky pink of the front pockets.

Orla Kiely FW16 Mainline: Color Block Croc Leather Square Bonnie Bag

Orla Kiely's newest addition to her Mainline collection includes this gorgeous Color Block Croc Leather Square Bonnie Bag. I think this new style has such a sophisticated and classic look, making it a great evening bag option. They are available in three colorways and retail for £400.

This style features a beautiful gold chain strap, reminiscent of a Chanel bag which has long been on my wish list. Whilst I still hope to one day own a Classic or Boy Flap, I think this Bonnie Bag will be a great alternative in the meantime.


This Multi colorway is my favorite of the three. I love its color combo and am actually quite inspired to use this color scheme in a spare bedroom in my home.

Orla Kiely FW16 Stem: Giant Linear Stem in Camel

The Giant Linear Stem print returns this season in the colorway Camel. I feel like this is the first time we've seen this classic print in the Backpack style as opposed to the Backpack Tote. I know those two seem like the same thing, and really they practically are, but the tote version zipped around the top, while this style zips just straight across. Also, this version does not have the rounded corners at the top, making it a bit boxier.
