30 for 30 - It's here!! Day 1

My gosh it's February already, can you believe how fast January disappeared? Well the beginning of February signifies the beginning of something else too...Kendi Everyday's 30 for 30 challenge!

Now I know I said this week I wasn't going to be able to start the challenge on time but amazingly I managed to get my little behind in gear and get myself organised, just in time. As I undertook this challenge last year, I decided to challenge myself a little extra this time and try to incorporate more colour into my outfits. I was actually quite surprised by how little colour I included last time as I am a fairly colourful person.

Plus there is a personal challenge made by my best friend, Heather, who decided to send me 3 items to try and style. 1 is kinda my style so is fine (the blue flower dress) and 2 piece are totally...totally not me, and she knew that!! If you have been reading my blog a while these 2 piece will stand out a mile, as they are so un-me (the Leopard top and the PINK shirt!) Damn her, but I shall not shy away from a challenge.
So here are my items for the challenge.
Grey Dress - Jane Norman (1)
Blue Pattern Dress - H&M (2)
