I wore this outfit while running errands the other morning. I had picked up the shorts the night before at H&M after dreaming of a ‘leather’ style short and finally finding the perfect pair. They’re super casual and are the cut of an athletic short which I’m really digging because I don’t go to the gym anymore (went back to my passion of dance), so I don’t get the chance to look very ‘athletic’ since ditching this style back in my grade 8 soccer days. Although, I would still spice these up with a strappy sandal and fun blouse for a night out. Because of the material they can transition easily from day to night.
This post is really meant to showcase the hoodie I’m wearing. Skate4Cancer is an amazing initiative I learnt more about in the past few years after meeting a now great friend from college who talked about the cause and meeting her then roommate and best friend Rob Dyer. His mission isn’t about trying to find a cure but trying to educate youth on how we can best prevent it from happening in the first place through education and early detection (and obviously great branding). After wearing the top, through the shade of my sunglasses I saw a lot of eyes taking a minute to read it. They may not know the cause behind the words but the message is there, and if they ask I’m happy to now know Rob and have enough knowledge to let people in on S4C.
Read more here if you aren’t familiar with S4C and Rob Dyer’s story.
They have really great (and cozy!) apparel located at Kill the 8 that I would suggest picking up and spreading the word on S4C and Cancer prevention. There are also great gift ideas for those battling ‘The Big C’ right now: “Keep your head up high beautiful” and “You are so loved” are my two fave pullovers.
“The cure is knowledge.”
