New Hair Color

What I'm Wearing:
Orla Kiely for Uniqlo scarf

I finally decided to change my hair up this weekend by coloring it - something I hadn't done in about six years. I felt like I was in such a hair rut, so I was looking forward to something different. I knew I didn't want to get a drastic haircut because it's taken me so long to get my hair even this long, and I still want it to be a bit longer for the winter time. I'm a big fan of ThatsHeart, and a few months ago she got her hair colored this gorgeous shade of caramel blonde, and I'd been wanting it ever since. I kept going back and forth, though, on whether I wanted to take on the maintenance of colored hair, but just decided I was desperate for something different so I finally went for it this weekend. And I absolutely love it! Definitely the change I was looking for :)

Orla Kiely AW15: Skipping Girls Applique

I am absolutely loving these Skipping Girls Applique bags, which were recently released on Orla Kiely's UK/Worldwide website. They are so cute and super quirky - two things I love! Each purse features the applique design on both the front and the back, with one girl wearing pink and red and the other one wearing yellow and brown. The handles are made of rope, taking on a quite literal interpretation of the name. The inside features a Linear Stem jacquard lining, and the bag itself is made of vinyl, while the "girls" are made of leather. I am definitely loving the Box Bag the best, with the Flat Zip Purse as a close second.

New Orla Kiely Beauty Products to Launch Soon

Orla Kiely has teamed up with the retailer Boots to create an exclusive collection of bath and body items that will launch in October. The range will include soaps, lotions, and body sprays that will be available in the scents Sage Lavender and Orange Caraway. The packaging, as always, looks so beautiful! Read more details about the launch at Good Housekeeping.

Up to 70% off Orla Kiely at Target

Just wanted to let everyone know that Orla Kiely’s latest travel collection for Target is now up to 70% off in stores! I was able to purchase the suitcase pictured above for just $54 (originally $179.99!) Just make sure you actually use a price finder to scan the tag – never trust what’s printed on the price tag! I’ve bought items that were only marked down to 30% off, but they rang up for 70% off! I’ve noticed, however, that many of the Orla Kiely items are no longer showing up in the system when you use the in-store price finder. I’ve had to ask a sales associate to scan the price for me, and they were be able to tell me the most recent and accurate price for the item. One cashier told me that whenever that happens, they’re about to clear out inventory of that item and send it somewhere else. Where?! I wanted to ask, but I restrained myself. I’ve recently started seeing the yoga items at Ross and some of the really old Method hand soaps at T.J. Maxx, so my guess is that they’ll end up at a retail store like that. BUT if you can find them at a Target store now, definitely pick them up because they are such awesome deals!

Orla Kiely's 10th Anniversary

If you’re going to be in the London area tomorrow, make sure to stop by Orla Kiely’s shop in Covent Garden to celebrate the store’s 10 year anniversary. Light refreshments will be served, and all items will be 10% off!

Orla Kiely AW15: Sweaters and Cardigans

Super adorable!

Living in a warmer climate doesn't give me much time to enjoy wearing sweaters and jackets. I've been told, though, that I'm lucky that I don't live in a colder area with snow, and while I appreciate that, I still LOVE fall and winter fashion, and sometimes I do wish we had colder weather (and maybe even some snow!) If you do live somewhere where it's actually starting to feel like fall, check out Orla Kiely's sweaters and cardigans from her AW15 collection below :)

Orla Kiely AW15: Hats and Scarves

It's still super warm here where I live so it's difficult to even think about hats and scarves right now, but it's still fun to at least look forward to colder weather :) Below are Orla Kiely's latest hats and scarves from her AW15 collection.
