In the Pink

With some reservation (pink?  pink?  I don't like pink!  I don't have pink!), I signed up for Mel of A Working Mom's Closet's Blogging for Breast Cancer aWEARness challenge. Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Mel has challenged us to try to wear one article of pink - as big or as small as you'd like - for the month of October.  I'm not sure I can make it the whole month, but I'll certainly try!

I decided to start the month off with a bang - my pink dress.  I had completely forgotten about this dress when I signed up for the challenge, so I'm hoping this means that it will actually be much easier than I thought it would be!  I'm tossing around the idea of trying to mix up this dress once a week to see how many different ways I can style it.  I know there is a shirt I've been looking to try with it, so this might be the perfect opportunity - but don't hold me to it!

When I looked at the weather forecast this morning, I swear it said that it was going to be sunny and a high of 28 degrees.  Sleeveless and barelegged seemed to be the way to go.  However, as the morning progressed, I noticed that the temperature wasn't climbing as quickly as it would need to to reach the high.  I checked again, and suddenly it was supposed to be sunny... but only 17.  I'm not sure whether I just read what I wanted to, or what, but that meant making a few changes to the outfit.  So you get both the outfit I planned on wearing, and the tweaks I made to make it a little more weather appropriate!
