I’m wearing red today for Daniel. Are you?

Nikki Parkinson Life 47 Comments

I don’t usually do outfit posts. Yes, you’ll see me in outfits for The Model and Me posts or at certain events but I’m not generally an outfit fashion blogger.

Today is different.

This is what I’m wearing today.

My Wear Red for Daniel outfit: Leona Edmiston Ruby dress; Metalicus trench; Mezi necklace; Leona Edmiston pins; Country Road pumps

My Wear Red for Daniel outfit: Leona Edmiston Ruby dress; Metalicus trench; Mezi necklace; Leona Edmiston pins; Country Road pumps

The reason is what I blogged about yesterday. I have tears in my eyes just thinking about seeing Bruce and Denise Morcombe on the news last night. The montage of flashbacks over almost eight years of torture.

Can you seriously put yourselves in their shoes? To have had your child abducted? To actually continue to put one foot in front of the other?

I can’t and I don’t want to.

But today, the man charged with the murder of their son Daniel will appear in court. The Morcombes have asked us to wear red to remember Daniel.

So, I’m wearing red.

And from the support shown on yesterday’s post, I know you will too.

You know what I would really love? I’d love you to spread the support and love even further. Post a photo of your red t-shirt, dress, lipstick, shoe or nail colour on my Facebook page today.

And if you’re a blogger and have have blogged about wearing red today, please leave a link below (there are no link-up rules – this is about creating awareness for the Morcombes and child protection).

  1. Thanks for hosting the linky. I wrote a comment earlier but it doesn’t seem to be here now? It must have been a(nother) tough day for Daniel’s family but they have been brave and strong x

      Thank-you, it’s there now (my server was not behaving!) – and thanks for linking up. They have been brave and strong and I noticed a difference in them today as to yesterday. I think they can really feel everyone’s support.

  2. Thanks Nikki for giving us something. There is so absolutely nothing we can do about this tragedy – but giving us someway of showing our support for the family is helpful for those us who just feel so helpless.

  3. Thanks Nikki. Loving all the support for The Morcombes today. I blogged about it here: http://sallytownsend.com.au/1730/red-for-daniel
    I interviewed Denise and Bruce Morcombe four years ago for CRIKEY! Magazine. It was easily the most difficult thing I have ever done. We don’t generally even hear the extent of the efforts they have put into child safety programs and helping abused children. They are truly amazing people.

  4. hi Nikki

    you look great and think you have fashioned it very well for Daniel.

    I love the length you have gone to for the Morcombes

    my heart bleeds for the Morcombes – the parents look on their face has every moment never changed – it is full of loss and sorrow – we have all forgotten though – there are other family members of Daniels that are hurting just as much too – we need to remember them and their loss.

  5. My god you are organised.

    Once we get dressed I will be linking up too.

    While it has been a big step for Daniels family there is still so much unknown. Not knowing what happened to your child and where he is and if someone may still “big shudders” get away with it, this is the worst for any parent and family.
