WIW 3/4, 3/5, 3/11: Pearls & Longchamp for Jen and Mardi

Jen, I'm sorry I've been so busy that I didn't post this earlier, but I wanted to let you know that you and Mardi are in my thoughts. I am so sorry for your tragic loss! Here are three outfits I wore, each with pearl earrings and a Longchamp bag in the last one that I bought in her honor. I know that there is very little we can do to ease your pain, but I want you to know that I am sending you lots of hugs and I will think of you and her every time I wear "Mardi's bag". She was such a lovely woman inside and out, with a shining spirit and kind heart and she is an inspiration to me and many other YLF'ers. I am hugging my kids tighter and trying to remember to enjoy the little moments with them as time is so fleeting and unpredictable. Wishing you strength, peace and comfort in your darkest days....
XOXO, Natalie

1-4. Hugs for Jen. Wore a "Snuggie" blue fleece cardigan to express comforting thoughts, and a circle pendant to signify an embrace.
5-9. Flowers for Mardi, and butterflies to symbolize her spirit. Hugging the kids tight!
10-15. Longchamp bag and matching horse shirt to symbolize Mardi's strength and grace. Gold bag and boots to symbolize what a treasure she was. Wearing a necklace with my kids' names on it to honor the mother-child bond.

    What a lovely thoughtful post Natalie and what lovely sentiments behind each outfit. You look great as usual.

    The drape of the fleece cardi is very nice and I like the rugged boots pairing. Then the colours in the next outfit are so vibrant, love the yellow bag. Finally the horsed print blouse and Longchamp are a great twosome and of course your kiddies are the best accessory :)

    You are so thoughtful and each outfit expresses your sentiments in a different way.  Really great job.  I'm laughing at your daughter and cat though.  My cat likes to snuggle with the kids but doesn't like to be picked up by them so this would never happen in my house.  

    I especially like the outfits with the white jeans.  Great looks!

    Natalie - you thoughtful you are :) The outfits are lovely as always, but it's pic #6 I can't take my eyes off of. You and your sweet cherubs are beautiful - and I'm giggling at kitty cat draped in DD's arms!
