My family is quite unusual, and extremely lucky. We have not been affected by cancer in the way that so many families have. I have friends who’ve watched parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and even siblings suffer at the hands of cancer, and in many cases they have lost people close to them. I may not be able to relate to their situation, but I can offer support in other ways.
I have teamed up with JD Williams to show you how I can wear pink for breast cancer awareness, and give you a few ideas for styling pink for autumn and winter.
As a mum of 2 I find I am often on the go, so I need an outfit that will be practical for running around after a busy toddler and bending down to pick a squirming baby off his play mat. It needs to be practical and comfortable, and ideally hide the left over mum-tum, but I also want to look good too!
For me, an over-sized sweatshirt, teamed with some leggings and trainers is the perfect outfit for days with the kids.
The sweatshirt is just what I need to layer up over the colder months. It is made of a super soft material which is keeping me nice and cosy on days when there is more of a chill in the air. The slogan is simple and not too in your face, because the colour of the sweatshirt draws enough attention! I have been loving wearing it around the house and out on the nursery run. Because it is oversized I can comfortably lift it up to breastfeed without any issues too.
I have had a new found love for trainers in the last few years, and these K-Swiss trainers in white and rose are the stuff that dreams are made of. I love that the rose stripes gives you a little hint of pink, without having to be too in your face about it. They are super comfy for a day on my feet, and I don’t have to be embarrassed by dirty old trainers when I kick them off at soft play.
Unfortunately JD Williams didn’t have any pink clothing for boys, so instead my niece is supporting me in wearing pink. She is keeping cosy this winter in an adorable pink knitted cardigan with little ears. It is fully lined so it is super soft against sensitive baby skin, and the hood keeps her warm when she’s being a pickle and won’t wear a hat.
JD Williams has everything you need to bring colour to your life, with both women’s wear and men’s wear as well as kids wear and even home furnishings and electrical goods. I love the selection of pink items I chose, but I am aware we are in November and therefore I should really be wearing blue for diabetes awareness month – so perhaps I’d better get back on to their website and get shopping!
