#Pinktober

October is breast cancer awareness month and that means two things... It's time to check your girls, and pink is the color of the month!  I have mentioned before that one of my sisters is a breast cancer survivor with that I can't tell you how important it is to have a yearly checkup.  It will be the best appointment you make all year.

 With it getting darker earlier it makes it difficult to get a bright white background shot.  Sooo...... this lovely blue cast background we will pretend was on purpose!  These are just some of my favorite pinks in my closet and home!

In the U.S., 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

Every 19 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Every 15 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer.

When breast cancer is detected early in the localized stage, the 5 year survival rate is over 95%.

It has been estimated that if every woman over the age of 50 had her yearly mammogram, breast cancer deaths in this age group would drop by 25% or more.


  So... if you love pink as much as I do, here is my roundup of a few things that have my attention... ok, seriously I want it all!

Leopard and Gingham

When an item is so versatile you wear it at least once every week you know it was a good investment.  Can you tell this leopard sweater is a favorite?  It truly has been an investment.  Styling it in so many different ways keeps it fresh and never mundane I think.  But I want to talk about these jeans today.  They are Fabulously comfortable.  With a hint of stretch, and a waist that is higher than low rise, but lower than high waisted...?!... they are a perfect jean.  I cringe every time I see girls wearing a pair of low rise jeans and a huge muffin top.  Did their mom or bestie not guide them before they left the house looking like that?  Girls.... just buy the next size up and you will actually appear slimmer without the muffin top! Oy... I am so glad I didn't have girls!  Anyway back to these jeans.  They are from The Limited and they are style #917.  Dark rinse, skinny, and stretch, it's a trifecta I tell ya! 

Now I will advise you to wash them the first time in cold water with a bit of vinegar to set the dye.  I am not a fan of everything having a tint of blue, and this helps with the color rubbing off on your skin as well!  The over dying process is notorious for this happening so take the measures first to prevent it.  Also, I am 5'4 and the regular length is too long for me so I get the short.

Leopard and Camo

When I first purchased these camo pants I had no idea how many ways I would be able to style them.  It is as if they are a neutral.  Seriously, so many things just work with them.  The one thing I love about this particular pair, which I purchased from Target,  is that they have stretch to them.  I hate a pair of stiff jeans or pants don't you?   I try to put together outfits on the weekend and line them up in my closet in what I like to call the bull pin... Not that they are in any particular order, but that I have all the elements gathered to complete an outfit.  It allows me time to think it thru, gather what I need and try different items to see what works best.  Do you plan out your outfits, or wing it?  I do wing it some, trust me on that... the girls in the office will attest to those days, but when I see an outfit in my minds eye I am anxious to pull it together!  One other benefit besides time savings, is I pull accessories from my closet that I might have over looked other wise.  Like this bag... It is what the sales associate in the Gucci store called "A loved bag"!  When I was browsing for a new bag I was carrying this one.  The corners are not protected with leather and the fabric is wearing.  Still a great bag ,but definitely showing its wear.  It now resides in the top of my closet overlooked often.   How many things are you overlooking in your closet?

LAYKH Handbags

Just saying the words exotic leathers sounds so beautiful.  LAYKH Handbags out of Hong Kong has some gorgeous designs.  Ranging from python to Ostrich, lizard, crocodile, and stingray... you also have the option of choosing your skin color.  I love a unique bag and and something that is out of the ordinary.  LAYKH is just that!! I would definitely consider this an investment piece to add to your wardrobe that will last for many years to come and become a great item to hand down to your daughter.  With pieces ranging from every day to evening wear, there is no doubt a bag for you.  She will even work with you on a custom design. What girl wouldn't want to assist in designing her own bag?!  


I would love to own several of her bags... oh the fun I would have carrying them.  A girl can dream!  This is not a sponsored post, just sharing her beautiful bags. If you don't already follow her on instagram you should.  She shares not only her designs but her travels all around the country.

Leather Sleeves

When I first saw this jacket hanging there I knew it had great potential.  Talk about fun! Not only is it a denim jacket, but it's black and has leather sleeves.  A little biker chick look but without the bike.  Ha!   Adding my skull scarf and geometric Maddy Nash clutch it really stepped up this black and white combo that I paired with my faux leather pants and of course leopard flats!

I had on my 50 x Fifty list to deep clean out my closet and slowly but surely I have made great strides.  I have cleaned out bags full of shoes, tanks sweaters... even dresses and tops. Do you ever hang on to an item because of how you felt when you wore it, or maybe think the memories attached to when you wore it?  I know I have been guilty of that. Adding in a few key pieces like this jacket will really go far.  What have you added you your closet lately?
