Smart summer fashion means doing good while treating myself well. I made a smart summer fashion investment in this utility jacket from  Veronica Beard because it works 24/7/365.

All Eyes On Me

I’ll wear this jacket for decades to come, if I can hang on to it that long that is, because my three teen-aged daughters are already vying to inherit it, one day sooner, rather than later. But, even better than having the kids sartorial respect is that ten dollars for every order placed on Veronica Beard during the month of May goes to benefit the Live4Life Melanoma Foundation stared by good friend and cancer survivor, Melissa Brietbart.

Smart Investment

I can’t reverse the sun damage I did to myself when I was younger and didn’t listen to plenty of the free smart advice that was readily available about the health and beauty advantages of wearing sunscreen. What I can do now, though, is to protect myself from the sun’s harmful rays that lead to both aging and, most critically, can also lead to skin cancer. It’s crucial to know that melanoma can effect everyone regardless of age or race. Melanoma is also one of the easiest forms of cancer to fight.

Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

All you have to do is check yourself to stay melanoma safe. Check your kids and your partner’s bodies for irregular moles at the beginning of the summer. If you notice a change in shape in any  of those moles run, don’t walk, to your doctor. Check-in with yourself on the hour when you’re out and about and reapply sunscreen. I leave a small bottle of sunscreen in my office and car and also in all my purses and totes that I carry.

Looking on the bright side, it feels so great to do well while doing good. It made me really happy to contribute to the fight against melanoma by treating myself to something beautiful to wear VeronicaBeard and fight cancer with style.

xx,

Veronica
