On Saturday, my mother in-law came up to take me out for a belated birthday Dim Sum.
While walking around, we passed by a sad, cardboard sign lying on the sidewalk that said,
“Beer for Boobs” in all caps. Perhaps a remnant of a scandalous night and an indication
of the seedy part of town? Wished I had taken a photo of it. Drats!
Regardless, the topic was quite relevant (boobs, not beer), as I kick-start October by
wearing pink. I’m supporting Mel’s Blogging for Breast Cancer aWEARness by donning shades
of pink throughout the coming month. I posted style inspirations here and you can see who
else is participating, here. If you’re like me and don’t have much pink in your closet, a simple
thing to do is wear it in lip and/or nail color for the cause. Easy, right? I hope you’ll join us!
This pink blazer hasn’t been on the blog yet. I thrifted it for $5 a couple of months ago, but
it’s been too warm to wear it. I love that the inside of it is black, so when I roll the sleeves,
it adds a nice color contrast. I’m wearing it with my fave tunic dress, worn as a top. A couple
of half tucks on the sides creates a fun sculptural look that lends a nice element of texture.
The photos below show me with a black blazer, which I tried on first and decided I wanted a
spicier and playful look. What do you think of the switch from black to bright pink?
