Lee National Denim Day® 2014

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month & Lee is joining in on the movement with Lee National Denim Day® 2014 which is Friday, October 3rd. Lee invites you to go casual for a cause & wear your favorite pair of denim on October 3rd in exchange for a $5 donation to help the American Cancer Society finish the fight against breast cancer. 

This amazing movement has been going strong in workplaces across the country since 1996 & has raised more than $91 million for the fight against breast cancer & they will add millions to that total in 2014. Lee National Denim Day® is committed to improving the everyday lives of those with breast cancer - past, present & future, from research to treatments, programs & more, your Denim Day teams help women rise above breast cancer.

From heels, to flats & the dressy flip flops in between, I love finding different ways to dress up or down my new Lee jeans! They are the perfect fit & style for going out with the girls, running errands with the kids or grabbing a bite to eat with the family!

Of course they are the perfect match for my new Modern Series Denim Jacket! This jacket screams fall & I'm so ready, layered over my favorite pink top, this is my new must have & go to fashion piece this year!

Beth, Catherine & Laura are the 2014 campaign ambassadors, you can meet these courageous ladies & read their stories by visiting Denim Day online!

So how do you wear denim at the office while still keeping it professional? It's easy to dress up your favorite pair of jeans with just a few finishing touches!

Lee offers these styling tricks to make your next denim ensemble exec-level chic:

  • Dark jeans are a must. Clean, dark denim says classic and sophisticated, while the distressed, boyfriend look can put off a weekend vibe.
  • Don’t underdo your denim. Pair it with your staple work separates: a dressy blouse, cardigan or a blazer – style it just as you would a dress pant or pencil skirt.
  • Not all denim cuts are office-friendly. Opt for clean (not slouchy) style – a straight, skinny, crop, or trouser.
  • Decorate your denim. Any of your favorite accessories will do – a nice pair of heels, colorful skinny belt or statement necklace will make you meeting-ready in minutes.
  • Feeling feminine? Try layering a Lee denim jacket on top of a colorful skirt or dress. Pair it with office-chic counterparts like red lipstick and pearls to polish it off.

So, with the right pair of Lee jeans & trusty pieces to style it with, you can achieve an office look that’s understated yet confident!

Did you know that for more than 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been working to help transform cancer from deadly to preventable. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society's efforts have contributed to a 34% drop in the breast cancer death rate & a 20% delice in the overall cancer death rate in the past two decades, as well as more than a 50% drop in smoking rates since the mid-1960's.

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women (excluding skin cancer) & second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer death in women. Mammography can detect breast cancer at an early stage, when the disease is most treatable. Yearly mammograms are recommended at age 40 & are simple tests that take just a few minutes. One in eight women will develop breast cancer during her lifetime, those few minutes could possibly save your life! 

This year alone, an estimated 232,670 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, in 2014, sadly, about 40,000 women will die of this dease, however there are currently more than 3.1 million survivors in the United States!
