In the Mood: October 2016

{Valentino}

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it only seems right to celebrate the color pink and everything it represents, and of course all of the amazing breast cancer survivors, those who are currently battling the disease, and those who have unfortunately passed. Let this month and this post serve as a reminder to do what we can to find a cure whether it is through a charitable donation, volunteer work, or lending your support to someone in the the throes of their valiant battle.

The color pink comes in a plethora of shades and is typically associated with the traits of compassion, nurturing, and love. I’ve always been a fan of pink, particularly in its brighter incarnations. I think some people mistakenly believe that pink is girly and meek, but quite the opposite is true. While pink can be feminine and ethereal (this week’s Valentino show comes to mind), it is also a very powerful color. It takes moxie to wear pink or to commit to a pink sofa, pink walls, or a bright pink front door. You’ll notice in my round-up below that pink works in just about any space in various applications and it looks just as fabulous whether you’re dressed for day or evening. Are you a fan of pink? Admittedly, it isn’t a color that I wear very often, but I do have quite a few pops of pink throughout my home. This month, I challenge you to “Think Pink”!

Seeing as how October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it only seems right to celebrate the color pink and everything it represents. The color pink comes in a plethora of shades and is typically associated with the traits of compassion, nurturing, and love. I’ve always been a fan of pink, particularly in its brighter incarnations. I think some people mistakenly believe that pink is girly and meek, but quite the opposite is true. While pink can be feminine and ethereal, it is also a very powerful color. It takes moxie to wear pink or to commit to a pink sofa, pink walls, or a bright pink front door as seen above. You’ll notice in my round-up below that pink works in just about any space in various applications and it looks just as fabulous whether you’re dressed for day or evening. Are you a fan of pink? Admittedly, it isn’t a color that I wear very often, but I do have quite a few pops of pink throughout my home. This month, I challenge you to “Think Pink”!
