I'm helping out with music for our Good Friday service, and when I asked what was appropriate to wear, they said "just dress normal church, but dark". "Normal church" is quite casual - dressed up jeans, I'd say, though I usually go a step above that.
I thought it might be a good opportunity to wear my black lace top, but I'm having troubles making it work. Suggestions?
#1 - #5 Black lace top over a variety of bottoms, with either a black shell underneath or a white long-sleeved tee underneath. Black trousers would also be an option, but #3 and #4 felt so dark that I was reluctant to make it even more black by taking away the white legs (which will have nude hose if I wear a skirt). My husbands comment was "It's not a funeral". on #3 and #4. He felt #2 was a bit more casual than I wanted, and preferred #1 to #5, but wouldn't say whether he actually liked anything (and usually he'll admit to liking something, so that means that he doesn't...)
#6-#7 A black dress with houndstooth jacket. I'm kinda thinking this is a better choice, but then I'd miss the opportunity to wear the lace top.
Fair warning: I have three events this weekend, and will probably be obsessing about what to wear to the other two also. Apologies in advance!
