In the spirit of all things Mean Girls, on Wednesdays we wear pink.

Now, it's only recently that I've really started finding Orla Kiely pieces that I like. I had just the one dress, which I bought from ASOS last year and still haven't found an occasion to wear, although I have altered it. Which took guts, I can tell you. Just like with their homeware collection, I'd found a lot of the older styles to be a little too 60s-70s for my liking.

As soon as I saw the images for this People Tree / Orla Kiely collection, I knew I'd have to order the pink dress. I deliberated for a little while over which style to go for and settled on the sleeveless one, as I liked the cut out detail to the back so much.

It arrived around the same time as these Kandee heels did, which is the only reason it crossed my mind to try them together. I think that the pale print on the dress persuaded me to wear it with the pale pink of the shoes, as usually I'd settle on a contrasting colour to wear with pink.

But in for a penny, in for a pound, I decided to finish the outfit off with this necklace I picked up in Asda. I've been really liking all of these retro flower necklaces about at the moment, and this one really appealed to me on it's pink cord. Something to set it apart from all of the regular chains I've seen lately. For someone who rarely used to remember to wear necklaces a few years back, I'm definitely making up for that lately. I guess I've just got more used to adding one to my outfit as a finishing touch.

What do you think? Too much pink? What would you wear this dress with?

  1. Nah, I really like all the pink together, it goes well! I really like People Tree but I only own one thing as I find it quite expensive. Always love a bit of Orla though!x

  2. You look so pretty! I'm in love with that dress; I love the colour, the shape, and the print, and it looks so different to the prints I think of when I hear Orla Keily. Love it! xx

    1. I think that's why I like this range- something a little different to their usual style.

    1. Eep, thank you. It was the back detail which swung the decision for me, I'd been torn between this one and one of the other shapes, but the cut out back was a winner.

  5. I've been eyeing up the Peter Pan collared version of this dress for what feels like MONTHS now! I'm really really taking to pink atm, and I love Orla Kiely. It's such a pretty summer dress! I'm going to pray that it goes in the sale! xx

    1. It's frustrating because although they have regular discount codes, they never seem to include the Orla stuff. I was torn ebtwen this and the Peter Pan collar one as well, though.

  6. Love this dress and love Orla Kiely's prints but I have found it impossible to ever find a shade of pink that suits me - which is gutting really as I'd love to have pink wednesdays ;) the only pink thing in my entire wardrobe is a pleated fuschia skirt that I found in a charity shop two years ago and still haven't got up the courage to wear it! I must admit I am drawn to the same print in the collar style! xxx

    1. Ooh, wear the skirt!!!
      I like the colourful version of this print as well, they do all of the dresses in both colourways if you're not so good with pink x
