Gray Shirtdress Spruced with Hot Pink.

I love waking up in the morning and pulling a cute ensemble while also thinking about a great cause. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and as such, it is a cause very near and dear to many women's hearts. Myself included. I have an aunt (no blood relations) that is a breast cancer survivor, also one of my mom's best friends is a recent survivor. But even without these two fabulous ladies in their fifties, this is a cause I support 100% because it promotes Good Health, Awareness, Strength, Confidence and Belief that one day there will be a cure for it. One can only hope. =)

Today's outfit may not be all bright and pink. As a matter of fact I am wearing gray for the second day in a row - this time it's a dark, steel gray. But I am popping it with luscious pretty-in-pink lips as well as pink in my accessories: skinny belt & loafers. I wore it while on a date night with my husband and he even noticed that my shoes, belt & lips match. It is kind of a big deal if and when men notice. I like how I pulled my belt up above my belly. I purchased this dress a couple of weeks ago. It is not a mternity dress but it sort of has that loose, casual, maternity feel to it. I like that the sleeves can also become long like a shirt-dress' sleeves. My hair was in a tight bun and off we went to our pizza and soft drinks date night. =)
