A girl emailed me the other day and told me that she had recently been hired at a funeral home. She asked me to post some of my day-to-day outfits, and guys, I’m glad that she did. I’ve always loved clothes and I really enjoyed sharing what I wore in the past on Little Miss Funeral.
I follow so many different fashion bloggers and get inspired daily by what they wear. My closet is a little more Wednesday Addams themed, but I still get happy when I throw an outfit together. Although my color scheme is, well, dark, maybe some of you reading this will get some ideas, too.
Today I had two visitations at the funeral home. This outfit is legit my go to. I’ve had this skirt forever and wear it almost every day. I love that it’s like a skater skirt because I can move around in it and still be very comfortable. I have a black lace shirt on to make this outfit just a little less boring. And since it was warmer out today, I had on my gray cardigan (instead of black) so I didn’t look too morbid. Not kidding, if you were to ever visit me at the funeral home there is a 90% chance I’d be wearing this exact outfit.
Although my mama hates wedges, they are my go to funeral shoes. Since I’m so short, I always wear a heel. Wedges are perfect because my heels don’t sink into the grass at the cemetery. Been there, done that. (It’s no fun.)
If I wear tights they are ALWAYS opaque. I want my tights as black as my soul.
But seriously, I’m very lucky because I do not have a strict dress code at the funeral home. This outfit is comfortable and easy for me to put together so I’m out the door fast. Two things that I love. I could have jazzed up this outfit a little more by adding a necklace, but I was in a hurry and didn’t think about it. So here you have it, me in all my funeral fashion glory:
Skirt – Loft (similar style here)
Shirt – Loft (similar style here)
Cardigan – Loft (similar style here)
Tights – Rite Aid (buy cheap ones, you will rip them)
Shoes – Chinese Laundry (similar style here)
Seriously, Loft. Can you sponsor me already?
