End Notes:

(I’m sorry I’m wrinkly. Sitting in lecture and a library does that to you.)

Ever since I met L. I’ve been inspired and appreciative of her dedication to supporting breast cancer awareness and research, and I’m so glad that she prompted us to participate in this breast cancer aWEARness initiative!

I don’t wear pink — “real” pink — on a regular basis at all. I own some pretty kicking magenta heels and some red-violet cardigans that might, on a generous day, be considered pink, but my closet is fairly bereft of pinky pink. Notably, this meant that when I did bust out a pink top today I received several comments from colleagues, wondering what prompted this color choice. And that meant an opportunity to remind them that it is still breast cancer awareness month and to high-five our department admin who is herself a breast cancer survivor.

It is a lot of pink for me, though, and so when I first put on this top I was trying to figure out how to break it up while still letting the pink take center stage. I settled on wearing a navy tank as a kind of non-sweater sweater vest of sorts, and I like how the overall impression of the outfit is fairly preppy, but with irreverent little twists in color and shape.

    I adore that bright pink and layering it under the tank as a vest is GENIUS!
