Day of Silence Outfit

Today was the Day of Silence, a day to bring attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools, and so I went the entire school day without talking. Wow! Our school's GSA encouraged students to wear pink and/or yellow. I don't own much of either colour, so I whipped up a yellow scarf. About 10 students took an oath of silence, and did a silent march through the hallways at lunch. I'm not sure how successful the day was overall, but the school's teachers and administrators were very supportive. Today's was outfit was planned entirely around this event.

Sorry that the pictures aren't top quality, I took them early this morning while the sun was low in the sky.

I recieved my mid-semester marks today, and I'm very pleased with them. These are the marks that matter when registering for university courses, and I'm happy to say that I met my personal goals in all of the classes. Oh, and it was 21˚C today! Warm enough to not need a jacket at all.


  1. Great outfit and an even better cause :) xoxo

  2. You look great! I can't wait until we finally have equality for everyone here, no matter race gender sexuality religion. You think it'd be easy?

  4. Thank you Paige and Devon. I hope that such oppression and inequality can be eradictated in our lifetime. Canada has legislative equality (for the most part) but homophobia is still a problem.
