C'mon, say it all together now: Helllloooooo, October! Yup, October is here. October is the month of apples and pumpkins. October is the month for costumes and candy. And October is the month for Breast Cancer Awareness. Those pink ribbons will be popping up everywhere -- from NFL football jerseys on Sundays to lapels of every politician.
It is a great reminder for all of us -- seeing the pink reminds us how far we've come in fighting breast cancer, with increased proven prevention methods and early screenings, but also how much more needs to be done.
Now, I'm not a huge pink kind of gal...right, I'm not a pink gal at all, but as the daughter of a breast cancer survivor (yup, my mom fought cancer and won!), I want to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month. I've been looking for some ways to rock the pink in the upcoming weeks.
This wrap bracelet from Elaine Turner not only lets you wear pink in style, the purchase of it helps fight cancer since a portion of the proceeds of each sale goes to cancer research. Awesome look, even awesomer result (awesomer is a word, right?).
I love Hoda and Kathy Lee. Like seriously want to hang out with them on a weekly basis. Hoda is a breast cancer survivor and she came up with this simple, casual ring design with the word "Forward" on it, sold over on the NBC store. A great reminder and again, a great purchase with part of the proceeds going to breast cancer foundations.
You may need to bundle up a bit while cheering on your little soccer dude or going apple-picking. This pink pashmina is perfect to promote breast cancer awareness and keep toasty warm on fall days. I found it on Amazon.
What is better than a super-soft, super-cozy sweater to toss on while running errands and taking kids to school? Not much, except one that shows your support for those fighting breast cancer. Snag this gorgeous and snuggly one from the Gap.
Check out what I found on Shopbop -- bling it out with these dazzling pink studs from Kate Spade. So simple, so elegant, so ideal to rock the pink every day in October (or really any month)!
How do you rock the pink for Breast Cancer Awareness? Do you know anyone who has fought breast cancer?
