What Ava Wore : Day of Pink

In support of the international day of pink, ms. Ava wore her favourite colour yesterday.
We are wholeheartedly against everything that this day stands for as are many communities across the country, and across the world, united in celebrating diversity and raising awareness to stop homophobic, transphobic and all forms of bullying. 
I wrote about my own experience with bullying here. Though nowhere near as significant as some of the news stories you hear today, it affected who I was and how I lived my life for a time. Never ok.

hat - H + M Kids {last season / we love this one}
top - Gymboree
leggings - H + M Kids {gifted} 
boots - c/o Paul Frank 

Did you wear pink where you live?
And also, know that we finally got rid of the Christmas decor that was STILL up {see Ava in front of our still decorated urn above} in the front and on the lawn. The ice storm and subsequent never-ending cold made it impossible to remove. Digging out the reindeer and sleigh was no fun but I am so glad they're finally gone!

Winner of The Shopping Channel gift card is Courtney Fudger. Congrats! I have emailed you.

  2. I've never understood the need to bully, even when you don't agree with the choices that someone else makes. I once heard a great quote about being known for what you are FOR, rather than what you are AGAINST. I think more bullies need to hear that message.

    1. Me either! I now know the issue is with them and was never with me. Hard to explain that to a young kid though! Thanks Cate.

    1. I agree! And do you need me to come there? Because I have been known to take matters into my own hands. Wrong mama to mess with! ;)

  6. Dearest Susan,
    Yes today I did wear a dark shade of rose pink ribcord jeans so I was fine. By far not as cute looking as Miss Ava of course. Love those photos with the hat!
    Enjoy the beginning of spring and preparing for more spring experiences elsewhere.
    Hugs,
    Mariette
