As my husband helped me with the clasp on my bracelet he said “I like the jumpsuit. It reminds me of something my mother would wear. The bracelet is a good choice. I still remember the clanking noise it made when she locked her closet door.”
My husband’s mother passed away twelve years before we met. I have always felt her presence and I am sure we would have hit it off. I would have loved to shop with her. Anytime my husband compares what I am wearing to his mother, the outfit becomes infinitely more stylish. My husband speaks about her adoringly. Her impeccable style is evident in photographs and in my husband’s stories about her. Any comparison is the ultimate compliment. When I wear her bracelet it adds an extra touch of glamour. I look down at the bracelet and picture it clanking as she locked her closet. That memory has become one of my own memories. On my other wrist I have been wearing my husband’s father’s watch (you can read about that here). These objects hold memories and make me feel connected to my husband’s parents, one of whom I never met and one whom I only knew a short time.
J. Crew Clutch older style (this would work well)
There is also a J. Crew Collection Jumpsuit in bright dahlia.
Here’s to memories.
