PinkTober Animal Print

Hello lovely readers,

October is Breast Cancer awareness month, followed by Movember, and I have heard so many survivor stories and seen so many dedications to loved ones lost. Cancer has touched the lives of almost everyone I know in one way or another. It’s a wake up call to take care of your body, listen to it and, if you feel as if something’s not as it should be, have it checked out! Early detection is the key to survival and beating this disease. 

It’s particularly sad, when babies and younger kids are affected, yet they endure it with grace and perseverance. There are so many lessons we can learn from the young. We can emulate their zest for life and living each day as it comes, kids are present in the moment regardless and suffer with impish charm. Let’s take this page from their book and find the joy in every day, and banish the sorrow of terminal illnesses.

Today’s lookpost is a tribute to Pinktober, on this last day of October, representing the summer of every day. In true Cape Town style we have had all four seasons this week and hopefully this summer outfit will prompt Summer to stay. 

I’ve paired animal print and stripes in a mid-week casual outfit, my comfortable mum-on-the-go look.
