Why The Butterfly Necklace Is Important
Remember earlier in the year when I talked about Revive Jewelry? They’re a jewelry brand that gives back to the cancer community. This time, they have a new necklace specifically for the month of October only. It is called the Butterfly for Breast Cancer Research Necklace. The name of this necklace says it all. Whenever the butterfly necklace is purchased, 10% is donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I’m very selective when it comes to the nonprofit organizations I support regarding breast cancer. Breast Cancer Research Foundation is one of the top organizations I support. Here is a list of other organizations I support. BCRF supports research for a cure, advanced treatments, and early detection techniques.
When the founder of Revive Jewelry told me about the butterfly necklace, I immediately loved it! I love its dainty style. I’m a sucker for dainty jewelry, especially in the color gold. But if you are into silver, they have that option too!

Aside from this necklace giving back to an amazing organization, the meaning behind the butterfly just makes it even more special! The butterfly is for any woman who wants to be remembered for their beauty and strength. A butterfly symbolizes beauty, metamorphosis, and emerging with vibrance. Whether you are the one going through breast cancer or know someone that is going through breast cancer, the butterfly necklace represents your strength and the process of a beautiful butterfly transformed into a new and stronger woman. What an amazing reminder!
For me, my cancer experience is extremely transformative. It may not be visible, but I have a sense of strength and worthiness. As if no matter what happens, I’ll tackle it. But I will admit, I have my moments I forget that. I lose who I am and wish for something better. This necklace is a reminder that in those moments I am stronger than I think I am. Reminders like this make darker days easier.
Pink Power Suit
Speaking of power and strength, I also wanted my outfit to represent that. We all have heard of power suits. Ya know those suits that make you feel dominant, strong, and confident. My power suit in this post is an all pink suit. A pink power suit is very bold and different. But that’s what I love about it. Pink has always been my go-to color. It’s very obvious in my Instagram feed haha. It’s my power color. It is also ironic that the color pink represents breast cancer.
I felt so confident when I put on this pink power suit. I got bolder just like the color. My inner badass came out haha. And whatever your power color is, I think everyone should rock it. Despite it being so different and bold. In my opinion, that’s what makes everyone so amazing – we are all different!
Sizing of the Pink Suit
I didn’t splurge on this pink power suit. When I am testing something new I tend to get a more affordable option until I really know what I like. I got this on Amazon for $70. It was a set. The quality is really nice, but the fit is odd.
Since you have to buy this suit as a set, you can only pick one size. I read the reviews and a lot of them said to size up. So I went with a medium. I usually wear a size small or size 4. The blazer fits perfectly and I definitely will be wearing it with other outfits. The pants did not fit perfect because the fit was so odd. It is tighter around the thighs (so for that I’m glad I sized up), but so large around the waist. I used the belt that came with this set to tighten the waist. My goal is to get it taken in later this month so I will no longer need the belt.
I love how this entire outfit including the butterfly necklace is symbolic to me. I feel bold in a pink power suit which also happens to be the color of breast cancer. Breast cancer is something I still deal with every day and the butterfly necklace is a reminder that I can get through this. I am really grateful that this necklace gives back to BCRF. Advanced research and a cure is something I am extremely passionate about. I want to one day not have to worry about breast cancer or want to live in a world where my future kids don’t have to worry about breast cancer.
