I am going to a funeral in a couple of weeks time and will be 36ish weeks pregnant and as you can imagine the maternity wardrobe isn't extensive!
I am not overly concerned that I can't wear a dark suit (being an Accountant I have a few of these, just not maternity!).
It is very much a celebration of life rather than an unexpected death etc as the lovely lady in question did reach the grand old age of 100! I obviously have black trousers so it's just deciding on the top half. I have a few dark tops but to me they seem a bit too casual. At the moment for I work I tend to wear black trousers, I have a few white tops (long sleeve, cling to bump etc type ones) which to me look smart which I tend to wear with a black cardi.
I'm planning on having a look over the next couple of weeks for a new top but if I can't find anything does back trousers, white top and black cardi sound ok? Or any other suggestions?

I think that sounds very respectful. very few people wear head to toe black. Men in suits usually wear a white shirt for example.
That sounds perfect to me. I'm sorry to hear of your loss.
We lost my grandad wheb I was 36 weeks pregnant and my nan banned all black outfit so I wore a black polkadot dress that my grandad has liked me in which was empire lined so luckily still fit.

Thanks ladies, it's just that usually I would wear a jacket so worrying a bit that I would feel undressed as such. Carole - as you say most men wear white shirts. LM - thanks she was my best friend's nan, I've known my best friend since we were babies so she's very much a surrogate nan! She had her 100th birthday on christmas eve, still lived on her own etc and in the end went very quickly and probably looking down now saying 'what's all the fuss about!'

She sounds like a brilliant woman. I don't know what you believe but ive always felt E has a special someone looking over her, my grandad was desperate to meet her. That brings comfort to me. Make sure to look after yourself there too. Very emotionally draining especially when that pregnant. X
