I debated posting this outfit, as it wasn't put together in the happiest of circumstances. Still, it was what I wore on Thursday so I'm sharing it. Last week, one of our family friends passed away. She was a wonderful lady and will be dearly missed. She shared God's love with everyone she met and touched so many lives, and the overflowing church was a representation of that.

This simple black dress is what I wore to the memorial service, and to spend the rest of the day with family.

Last worn: Raybanlittle black dress, Wittner flats, vintage Chanel flap bag.

The return of denim on the blog - I picked up my first pair of maternity jeans in the Jeanswest sale. They are really comfortable! A nice, simple, hassle free outfit for Friday.
It's been more than 6 months since I last wore this top, but keeping it in my wardrobe as it's nice and billowy and will still fit over the next few months.

Last worn: RayBan (see above), printed top, red suede flats, Balenciaga coquelicot velo. First time I've worn the jeans as they are a recent purchase.

  8. Mica, I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. She sounded like a wonderful person. God Bless Her. You looked beautiful. I love that black dress on you. You can hardly tell you're pregnant. I wanted to ask you think Cooper realizes a change? Usually animals pick that up. Love the leopard and your red flats are too cute with your outfit. Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks Kim. She was a wonderful person.

      Cooper definitely notices a change, he's starting to sit near me a lot more often now when we are with people, he used to always sit with hubby. He will make a great big brother :)

  24. Thank you all for your kind and thoughtful comments.

  25. Is it appropriate to carry the chanel flap with an evening/cocktail dress or is a clutch a must with that look?

    1. I think you can wear any bag you like to a memorial service to be honest! I don't think there are any set dress code rules for what accessories. Everyone wears what they feel appropriate or special based on their relationship to the deceased, unless they had any specific guidelines that they requested for attendees before they passed away.
      The dress is jersey too, wouldn't really call it an evening dress :)
