The Silver Pen is one of the most well-written blogs we’ve come across in a long time. Created by an incredible woman, Hollye Jacobs, The Silver Pen began as a way to share her journey with breast cancer. She has a firm belief that breast cancer happens within the ecosystem of family, friends and community. Consequently, Hollye decided to take the holistic approach and write about breast cancer with style, a sense of humor and Silver Linings. Not many blogs incorporate the array of topics Hollye does. Traveling, philanthropy, inspirational stories, family, style, food and so much more–she truly covers all aspects of life.


Not only is Hollye an amazing writer, she also has great taste when it comes to fashion. It’s an honor to have her as this week’s guest editor so be sure to check out her picks below!
