A Painful Anniversary

Today is a painful anniversary. One I've, honestly, been trying not to think about all day. It helped (ha!) that our water heater broke this morning and our laundry room was flooded and I spent a good chunk of the morning thinking about that instead... but every time I get a spare moment to myself... it creeps in.

A year ago today - my whole life got turned upside down. Stood right on its head. I lost absolute control over everything about myself. A year ago today I learned that I had lost our baby. It was a true death for me. I grieved it as one. I still grieve our baby's loss. I may, likely, do so for the rest of my life.

What Mama Wears: Colour Pop - Colour Block

I first saw this dress when the Target opened up here in our hometown. While lots of people were a little disappointed with the Target here in Canada, I was excited to see so many new designers coming our way. We already had Mossimo, but so many others were not available here beforehand.

I love the colourblocking look that's been so popular over the past couple of years, however, most of the pieces I've found tend to have blocks placed in... awkward positions. This simple sheath with one simple block of colour between the yoke of the dress and the body was a simple way for me to incorporate this trend without having an awkwardly placed chunk of colour over my chest or stomach or anything of the like.

I paired it with my new mother's day gift shoes from my boys and a fascinator from my own collection.

Do you wear colour blocking? What do you think of it as a trend?
