Country Road Summer 2010

How gorgeous is this summer campaign from Country Road?! They must have sensed my longing to be lounging on a tropical island instead of drowning in paperwork at my desk!

I checked out the collection today and it is a huge step up from the bland military look that they’ve been pushing all spring. The prints are vibrant and interesting and the pieces can be easily matched with items already in your wardrobe (eg. last season’s denim or khaki shorts). According to the staff, all the items featured in the catalogue have been flying off the shelf, especially the yellow printed dress which is now sold out.

The accessories have received a major update too – think printed sarongs that double as scarves, raffia clutches for daytime, embellished clutches for night, studded purses, fringed handbags, etc. This clutch in particular caught my eye – upon closer inspection, I noticed that the beading work is high quality:

I took advantage of the Spend and Save offer and picked up the striped t-shirt in the third picture, as well as a tie-dyed t-shirt, grey knee-length shorts and tan pumps with a wood heel, all for around $250.

What do you think of the new collection? Did anything tempt you?
