Think Pink This October

This October I challenge all Miami students to “Think Pink” for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With over one million women diagnosed with breast cancer worldwide, October signifies renewed hope for a cure and broader awareness to a disease that affects so many lives. Wearing the color pink in October is a way to show your support for the cause, and here are a few ways to look incredibly cute while doing so:

ApparelWhy not add a pop of pink in a jacket or vest? It’s the perfect way to add a little spice to any outfit.

Pinterest Find: Pink Jacket

Local Find: This Lilly Pulitzer vest was found at Apple Tree in Oxford, Ohio.

HC Tip: A pink jacket or vest can make a great statement piece, so let it shine by wearing more neutral compliments with it.


JewelryA cute necklace or pair of earrings can add just the pop of pink you need!
