It is Pink October… Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram-the screening test for breast cancer can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.
Unfortunately many of us know at least one person whose life has been affected by breast cancer. For me it is my lovely grandmother on my dad’s side of the family, she was diagnosed and lost the battle in 2006. I styled this black and hot pink #ootd to keep my grandmother’s memory alive and support anyone who has survived this disease and for anyone who has lost someone due to breast cancer.

I am wearing a black and hot pink crop top with mesh detailing at the top and I paired this crop top with simple black slacks and I finished off my look with pink heels and headband.
