Happy Monday ladies! Today’s post didn’t turn out as expected and these pictures tell my story. We went into San Francisco yesterday to play tourist, go sailing on the bay for a few hours and then grab a nice dinner. The wind seemed mild as we headed into the city so silly me, wore a hat without a chin strap.
I’d packed a sweater in my tote in case it cooled off and a scarf to tie around my shoulders for dinner after our sail. The wind whipped up the moment we hit the dock so I had to take evasive action. My hat got stowed in my tote, I pulled on the sweater and tied the scarf on my head to keep my hair from being trashed.
Talbots sent me this very special scarf to help share their initiative to honor October breast cancer awareness month. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at 70 so this initiative is near and dear to my heart.
The Art of The Scarf collection features five limited edition, one of a kind silk scarves created by internationally renowned female artists. Each is unique and the best part is that 20% net proceeds benefit National Breast Cancer Foundation®.
The closer we got to the Golden Gate Bridge, the stronger the wind blew. On went my jacket and I needed to tie my scarf more securely.
This silk scarf was designed by Gladys Perint Palmer from British Columbia. This design spoke to me because my mom was born in British Columbia and my daughter now lives there. Gladys has long captured the comings and goings, shifting hemlines, and key players in the fashion world.
I secured it à la Grace Kelly for some old Hollywood glamour which was the only way I could keep it from blowing off.

I’m proud to support this initiative and do all I can to raise breast cancer awareness.
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
Thank you to Talbots for gifting me this scarf and all you do to promote breast cancer awareness.
