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.
