I started today out incredibly inspired by L.’s two great posts about Breast Cancer Awareness Month and A Working Mom’s Closet’s “Blogging for Breast Cancer aWEARness” project. I was inspired to build today’s outfit around some pink item in my closet, but even before I had finished my morning coffee, I knew I would not be photographing an outfit today. I’m in the midst of grant writing, preparing for a prospectus defense, and proposing a summer course (on top of my regular teaching, advising, and professional service activities), so a jeans and a tee is all I can manage today.
Not wanting to let this great project pass me by, I decided I could sort-of participate by posting some of my favorite pink-based ensembles from the past year and a half I have been blogging. I was surprised to see how much pink there actually is in my closet – from dresses, to sweaters, to a whole host of accessories.
Now, I know this is a pretty lame way to participate, so I promise the following:
- I will wear a pink-based ensemble to teach in on Thursday
- I will mention breast cancer awareness month in class on Thursday
- I will do a self-exam
- I will choose my pink sweatshirt over all others all week!
