Uniqlo x Orla Kiely: the top...

This top is the last of my pieces from the Uniqlo x Orla Kiely collection (I promise I will stop banging on about it soon!) I initially ordered this one but that was in the parcel that went walkabouts and they only had XS left when I went to reorder it :( Apologies for the annoying strand of hair in this first photograph, I didn't realise that it had fallen out of my plait until I looked at the photographs! I loved the printed top and the camel coat but I did feel like I was dressed like a mum from the 1970s... 

Coat:Dannimac via my mum, dress: NW3 from Hobbs, top: Uniqlo x Orla Kiely, socks: Marks & Spencer, boots: gift from my parents, bag: Fiorelli (birthday gift) 
 As soon as the top arrived, I knew it would be perfect for pairing with my beloved denim dress. I am always on the lookout for nice printed tops for layering with and this is lovely. The cotton is light but still warm; and best of all, this t-shirt holds its shape when you wash it, which my cheaper t-shirts definitely don't. 


I also dug out my brown 'riding boots'. I got these as a present after doing well in my GCSEs (all those years ago!) and although I wear them most winters, I'm never sure what to pair them with as they are quite a statement piece. The knee high socks added some warmth and I was able to live out another Clarks shoes fantasy- I LOVE the advert with the socks layered under the boots!


Isn't this just the cutest print?! I can see it paired with my green maxi skirt and my fur gilet, something I can definitely imagine Stevie Nicks wearing. Or maybe it's just having Fleetwood Mac playing in the car over the last few weeks that is just making me think that!



What's your favourite seventies look? How would you style my boots?

I love that print, it is so darling! You look gorgeous! I used to love Fleetwood Mac when I was younger but unfortunately working in a shop where they played it constantly kind of ruined them for me :(

I love this! The whole outfit, it has such a retro feel - I don't know if it's the print or the dungaree feel of the dress? It's great anyway! xx

Hello Maria! Nice to 'meet' you via blog! The Orla Keily top looks really nice on you! I ummed and ahed about that t-shirt but decided I wasn't sure what I'd wear it with, but you've styled it really beautifully! I ended up with the leaf t-shirt and blouse and skirt, really pleased with them, like you! They really are nice quality aren't they!x
