Orla Kiely S/S13: Swoonfest

I am not often blown away by the high street (have you not guessed yet from this blog?) but I've just stumbled across the new Orla Kiely Spring/Summer collection and YOWZER I am simply in love and I must share. I first started looking at Orla Kiely's designs when I saw Carrie from Wish Wish Wish wearing a beautiful frock from last years range, have a nosey below.

But this is all about getting a spring in our step! Named as "the queen of prints" by The Guardian, it;'s no surprise this collection champions this seasons' graphic designs as well as the ever present florals. The designer has taken hold of this seasons' biggest trends, pastels, monochrome, neon and 60s creating a timeless collection with some really special pieces. You can expect to fork out upwards of £300 for a dress, but some of these may well be making you the envy of the bride at that Summer wedding! Take note of the pink lipstick too, a perfect companion to all of these outfits.

Ooh! I do love these frilly knickers, well, bikini bottoms. Not for everyone, but paired with some bold cat eye sunnies and a 50s hairdo, you'll be rocking rockabilly on the beach with ease. Oh and don't forget the pink lipstick, keep your lips matte to channel that 60s vibe into the 21st Century. Try NARS Semi Matte colour in Funny Face for a super bold lip.

Well. I need to do some serious thinking for when this collection finally drops! What to buy...
