The weekend past gave a first glimpse into what summer may (hopefully) have in store for us. Crystal clear blue skies, a wispy breeze barely strong enough to rustle the trees, and a warmth that soaked right through to my bones. I for one, embraced every minute of it; a reward unto itself.

I’ve been continuing to keep up with the 30×30 challenge, and despite my initial apprehension, ten days in I’m feeling much more positive about seeing this through to the end. Carefully re-selecting the thirty items on the second day has helped, once realisation set in that I was unlikely to need a coat or multiple sweaters, and the two pairs of heels I’d chosen were in desperate need of a cobbler’s attention. Choosing to complement the weather, rather than work against it, has been working in my favor. Keeping it nice and light on a Sunday afternoon in my beloved Lover, and open-toed sandals. Too easy.

    I really love the concept of your 30×30 challenge. I can absolutely see why your Lover dress would be in there. I swear you must have the most amazing selection of Lover pieces. I’ve fallen in love with them every time you have featured them. Glad to see you getting some blue skies too. Finally we have had them here for the past two days as well. Finally…

    Have to find out more about your 30X30 challenge ; this dress is amazing and I can see why you love it so much !
    The shoes are fabulous too but unfortunately a bit cold for our weather conditions right now.

    Oh I must look back to the archives to follow this 30×30 challenge! I love this dress, a classic choice and definitely a solid pick for the challenge. The neckline and light eyelet details are too pretty 🙂

    That dress is such a beauty, I’m so incredibly jealous of your little Lover collection! I really like the thought of doing a similar challenge, but I’m not sure if I’d actually be able to see it through, I tend to more grab pieces in the morning than plan outfits, and I guess this takes quite some planning to make sure you’re not wearing the same thing everyday?

      I carefully planned, although it would seem not well enough. I’ve ended up changing my list by about 1/3 as some things weren’t suitable or had to be repaired (shoes). Usually by mixing and matching you can have a slightly different outfit every day, although no harm in a bit of outfit repeating if you ask me!
