Is it possible to turn a somber day into a day that makes you smile, despite the heaviness of it all? A special day like today should bring a smile of thanks to all of us because it should remind us, of how lucky and blessed we are, for the freedom that fiercely brave and courageous men and women have fought for, on our behalf.
As I watched the ceremonies, as I do every year, of course an outfit thought popped into my head….as it always does. Black and red are some of my fave colours to work with so of course I hopped into my closet and grabbed a few things I felt were perfect for today’s outfit. My fave red accessories….ohhhhh just a nice red sole…. and a freshly laundered lawyer’s shirt were the first things to come to mind. …et voila! I am extremely proud of pulling this outfit together.
Our precious poppy is Canada’s symbol of this special day and I wanted to honour this day by creating a very special outfit, in honour of all our heroes. It is because of them that I live in the best country in the world. Living in peace with an ability to express yourself is a gift that I never take for granted.
Thank You. We Will Never Forget xoxoxo
