PEACE AND STEVE


Just a simple outfit for today. It was one of those rare instances where I woke up knowing exactly what I wanted to wear; in this case something black and simple, with the peace necklace that I'm struggling to believe I ever lived without. For anyone wondering where the post title comes in, I'm pretty sure the horse necklace was christened Steve by a friend a while back. If not then I'm that person who names inanimate objects when bored, and tries to cover it up with elaborate stories about sentimentality and nostalgia. Hmm...

Oh! I also got some very exciting news from the team behind BINTM who organised a blogging competition alongside handbag.com. If I'm totally honest, it's been so long since I entered that I presumed the finalists had already been chosen, but luckily for me that wasn't the case and I've been shortlisted as one of the final five! We have a style challenge to complete, which will be submitted next week ready for an online vote. As I said to Sarah on twitter, I'm excited enough to be in the top five, and I'm not a huge fan of voting comps anyway - it always means pitting bloggers against each other, which seems to go against the whole point of being a community, but I'm really excited to take part and I'll keep you in the know so that you can judge for yourself :)

Love, peace, and steve.

The outfit may be simple but it looks great. Your legs seem like they're going on for miiiiiiles!

I feel that naming inanimate objects shows my sensitive side, hah!

Ah man, simplicity is a joy. My simple (but 100 times less tylish outfit) was one I woke up and knew I'd be wearing too. Green scarf come to Chloe. Love the bag in the post, where is it from?

Miuchos good luck for the competition, look forward to seeing your entry.
