I don't know what to wear...

 A friend of mine's father has passed away and his funeral is on Monday. I am a stay at home mom and lived in Texas for the past three years, so all of my clothes are summer-ish and brightly colored...not to mention I have never been to a funeral before, I have no idea what to wear. Can anyone give me a few tips on funeral attire? (sad I know but I don't want to dress 'wrong'...I guess...?)

 This and it should be conservative.

Black skirt or slacks and shoes, and a grey top or a white top as long as it's conservative.

Do you have a little shrug or wrap that you can put on over it?

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

Black or dark navy color.  I wouldn't wear strapless some people do.  Short sleave or long depending on weather.

Just wear something dressy that doesn't call attention to you.  A black dress with low heels and a short sleeved sweater/ wrap?  Nothing too fussy.
