|Dress: Orla Kiely at People Tree|
|Necklace: George @ Asda|
|Percy Pig heels: Kandee Shoes|
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?
