Thanks everyone. I ended up wearing navy and tan as I felt the sweater was not my best bet. As it turned out I was a bit chilly so I should have worn it. Oh well. I'm hopeful that is my last funeral for a while so I won't have the clothing dilemma again. Thanks for all the responses, they were much appreciated.

I probably dress too conservatively most of the time, but I like to have in my closets something I could wear anywhere (well, not to the White House maybe). I hate having to buy something for a special occasion so try to think when I shop how many different places an outfit could be worn. I always feel better in something I've worn several times so it makes me a lot more comfortable with the circumstances.

I tend to be conservative too licia. Where I work, we have to abide by the same dress code as the kids so I purchase my wardrobe with that in mind. I have been trying to add colour to my wardrobe and am succeeding, but do you have any idea how hard it is to find shirts that are colourful but don't ride up to show your belly when you raise your hands over your head? Or something not too low cut?

Alix,
same problem here, while I'm a tan and black nut, My favorite color is chocolate brown, my kids have given up with most colors, but have finally gotten me into a red cashmere turtleneck sweat and I do like it, but my first instinct is to reach for the black or the brown. I suppose it's leftover from childhood, when my aunt would take me to San Francisco and quietly point out the way to "dress" So, I am very traditional and conservative, my kids say I always look just right, but geez, mom could ya please maybe have a piece of lint or a hem not so even But, back to color and things to fit and proper for your age..Heck I'm not 20 anymore and everystore here where I live cater to the teens and 20 somethings..I refuse to wear those so do much of my shopping in San Francisco or Sacramento at least I can find something for the Ma's there
