26 October 2010 – PINK

October 26th, 2010 § 6 comments

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!

    I love the pink shoes! Fantastic! You guys have inspired me to wear pink one day to support the cause. Guess I know what to wear tomorrow. :)

    {I am SO behind on reading and commenting, sorry I’m so late on this!}

    I LOVE this post with all of the different pinks. I don’t think it’s a lame way to participate at all, I think it’s a great way!

    Plus, mentioning Breast Cancer Awareness in your class and doing a self-exam are the most important!

    You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be actually something
    that I believe I might by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely huge for me.

    I am looking forward on your subsequent put up, I will
    try to get the grasp of it!
