Being it is October, which just so happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness month, I decidedly shot this pretty in pink look with photographer Michele Andersen. With pastels being all the rage for fall this year, and pink always being one of my favorite colors anyhow, this post made perfect sense to put together. Knowing many who have either died or battled with cancer, it is a subject for me that hits close to home. For that reason I raised money and rode in Cycle for Survival last year, and I plan on wearing pink ALL October.
That being said, one of my favorite things to do is mix and match masculine and feminine pieces. For this particular post I mixed this cotton candy pink jacket I bought from Zara last year with an 80's vintage leather pencil skirt I found at the Melrose Trading Post for just $25 dollars. For additional urban effect I paired the look with the most perfect leather booties I have found all season from Stuart Weitzman and my new favorite Rebecca Minkoff backpack. This fierce little backpack is not only super versatile, but when purchased at Bloomingdale's (which is where I purchased mine) in the month of October, gives back to breast cancer as well. I love fashion for a good cause. Check out the full look below. Oh, and F Cancer !!
