Pink, Pink, Pink... For Breast Cancer Awareness!

Happy November, everyone!

This past month flew by with record speeds.  It’s been quite a whirlwind over at our house, and after chatting with others, it seems to be a trend across the board.  I apologize for not staying on top of my posts in the past couple of weeks, I am migrating my website and making a few changes to my company – so needless to say, my time has been a bit stretched thin! 

Instead of jumping in today and giving you an update on what we’ve been up to, I decided to focus on one topic that’s near and dear to my heart, then give you a little gallery of our recent whereabouts. 

October is known for several things… Halloween, football, changing leaves (especially here in Colorado), and Breast Cancer Awareness.  Yes, in case you’ve been living under a rock, the entire month of October is dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness and coming together to realize we need a cure!

Recently, Andrew and I were asked by some friends of ours to join them for a Broncos game at Mile High Stadium!  I was so excited because it was my first Broncos game, and first time cheering on a different team since moving from Dallas.  Additionally, it was an October game, and most NFL teams wear PINK gear during this month to show their support of the cause! 

Knowing these details about the game day colors, I took full advantage of the opportunity to sport my beautiful pink vest from ML Furs.  Pairing the pop of color with an understated white pant and a basic white tee, I pulled the look together with a grey Broncos hat.  The end result was amazing – sporty and casual, with a flare of festive!  Who knew a pink vest could be so versatile??

As I planned for this post, the reason for this look got me thinking…  Why do we only support something when the media tells us to?  Just because we have found ourselves in November, doesn’t mean my support of Susan G. Komen foundation and desire for a cure has passed.  Why can’t I wear pink year round to show my support and raise Breast Cancer Awareness! 

So I’d like to challenge everyone to continue their support of causes well beyond the designated days… I don’t care if you have a heart for ALS, Breast Cancer, or Autism, whatever you feel speaks to you, continue to support them well beyond 1 week, 1 day, or 1 month!
