Monday means .........Back to normal

Bonjour to another week!

Alright back to normal means kids back to school,  your time is here again.  A little 'me' time.
Well OK I know my children are at work so that doesn't apply to me - but hang on one minute - for me it means shopping with no children in the stores, no long queues full of teenage girls and less holiday traffic on the roads - hurrah!

Sad to say attended a funeral today, seem to be unfortunate enough to have been attending a few of them recently - and I'm not liking it one bit.
Opted for the conventional 'black' outfit with an embossed pencil skirt along with black silky v neck top - both I have to add are from Matalan and have been on repeat over the past year.  These black suede shoes are a particular favourite of mine, a few years young, and from Clarks.  I quite often check out the shoes and sandals in this shop, mainly for the sizes they do my fit of a 6 1/2, and the comfortable padded insoles.
The weather today was typical funeral weather - dark, dismal, damp and depressing!  This could only happen in the UK fabulously hot weather and then on a funeral day horribly wet weather!

Similar skirt here from Roman Originals.
Similar top here from the Tu range at Sainsburys.
Similar shoes here from Marks and Spencer.

What do you think of my funeral choice?  What would you wear?
Catch up tomorrow Ladies. X

  1. Beautiful outfit Jacqui! Love the black lace skirt. I am sorry to hear about your loss. I usually wear black, something formal to a funeral. Hope you get some sunshine soon, it does help with my mood, that is for sure!

    1. Thank you Jessica, such lovely words. I'm definitely looking forward to some brighter sunshine in my life. I also can wear this skirt with a brighter top to change the whole look. x

  2. Funeral is kind of event where you need to choose everything very careful from clothes to flowers. Picking up the wrong one can give a bad impression. I think your choice is good and very authentic. Thanks for sharing.
