Today I am honored to be partnering with Popsugar, CDFA, and one of my favorite designers Marissa Webb in honor of breast cancer awareness month. This post is not sponsored and is fully about helping spread awareness and supporting women around the world who have been affected by breast cancer or have friends and family who have been affected by the disease.

Eleven years ago my sweet grandma was diagnosed with breast cancer. You’ve heard me talk about her on the blog (she’s the one who gives the great foot rubs ;). I remember everything about that time as clear as day – it was a very scary time for her and everyone in our family. I’m so thankful for technology and amazing doctors who were able to get her in remission. I found out last night my great grandma had breast cancer as well which I didn’t know. I think it’s so important we are all proactive getting mammograms and self checks (know your boobies ;). I believe there is so much strength in supporting each other, and whether its time, financial contributions, or being there for those you know fighting cancer, every bit helps!

This week I am teaming up with Marissa Webb sharing today’s look and donating 100% of my affiliate earnings for the week to the CFDA‘s Fashion Targets Breast Cancer foundation. I’m obsessed with this pinstripe wrap skirt! I also just ordered this gingham cami, I love the pattern mixture on the peplum. I know some of you have been asking for budget buys this grey sweater is amazing and it’s under $100.

XX, Christine

    Aw I’m so glad you shared this post, this is such a close subject to me. My grandma also had breast cancer a few years ago and because of that they think it now runs in the family. Awareness is so so good along with mammograms and early check ups! Thank you Christine!

    I think its amazing that you are spreading the word about this cause. My grandmother also had breast cancer and unfortunately it spread. Although I never knew her it was really difficult for my family and it’s a cause I think is important to raise awareness about.

    Christine! Thanks for your post and for talking about the importance of breast health awareness – self checks are a MUST! Have you ever heard of the Get In Touch Foundation? They are a breast health non profit that teaches gals and guys (boys can get breast cancer too!) about the significance of and how to do a self breast exam. They are an incredible organization that is helping to spread the message of how important it is to know your ‘baseline’ aka how YOUR normal breast feel. Until there is a cure, early detection is the best case scenario for those dealing with breast cancer. Thanks for sharing the importance of this!! Love your blog! And so glad to hear your grandma is in remission 🙂
