My Favorite Orla Kiely SS16 Bags

I think Orla Kiely totally hit it out of the ballpark this season with her bags - I can't remember a time where I loved so many pieces. Below are the bags that have made it to the top of my wish list.

Let's start with my absolute favorites - the Textured Leather bags in the Nude colorway. I think this tote would be great for both work and running errands. 

I also love this style's more structured look.

Such a cute and casual bag! I just love the way the flowers look against the dark background.

I think it would be nice to have a "professional"-looking backpack (if there even is such a thing). I do have the Sixties Stem Punched Leather Laurel Backpack that has been my go-to work bag for about a year, and I'd love to be able to add another work staple to my collection.

The Jeanette style is quickly becoming a favorite of mine, so I was happy to see it available again this season in the Damask Flower print. I also actually really like that pop of red on the luggage tag - I think it provides a really nice contract against the green and blue floral print.

Such a simple design - I think the orange and sand look really good together.

This bag just reminds me so much of vintage Orla Kiely. This print is very similar in design to the Egg print bags from the Spring/Summer 2000 collection. However, I didn't discover this brand until 2007, so I'm happy that I have a second chance at owning something reminiscent of that time.

I'm so intrigued by these small shoulder bags, just a shrunken down version of the classic. Even though they are quite impractical for my lifestyle (I usually have my three-year-old son with me, so a backpack or crossbody is a must so that my hands are free), I still really want this bag! I think it's because its size is just so stinkin' cute and I think a print like this looks better on smaller pieces so that it's not so overwhelming.

A second option would be this travel pouch - still cute and small, but I have the convenience of wearing it as a crossbody.

What do you think of Orla Kiely's Spring/Summer 2016 collection and which bags have made it onto your wish list?
