going pink.

October is pink-ribbon-month with the aim to raise awareness for breast cancer. I’m not sure why, maybe because I am getting older or becoming more aware of my surroundings, but it seems cancer is becoming more present than ever. Especially breast cancer is far too common with women, and even girls in their teens can be affected.

When Hallhuber asked me to help out with their charity quest for October, I was of course more than happy to participate! The beautiful silk scarf that I am wearing in the outfit below will be available as of next Tuesday – October 16th – and for each sold scarf 20€ will go to Brustkrebs Deutschland e.V. – a german non-profit organization to help prevention and early diagnosis of breast cancer. I am already in love with the scarf (have worn it 3x this week alone) and the thought of donating to charity with such a cute accessory is definitely a lovely one!!

  1. I love your outfit…the scarf is very cute and definitely a great donation! Having had two aunts dying of lung cancer (in Vienna), it is a subject very close to my heart..I just feel it’s kind of bad that Breast Cancer seems to be the one getting the most attention when there are many other types of cancer just as bad..

    Loved this post!! Always good to see fellow bloggers writing about such topics =)
