SILLY ME didn't really factor Church into the equation. I don't know about your churches, but in all Polynesian churches (well all I have attended) have a very similar expectation as to what to wear to church. Nothing short and no cleavage. It's basically how I have been raised to dress "respectful". Even growing up around boy cousins, uncles and brothers. I always had to cover up and I have no problem with that.
So when it came to Good Friday my nephew told me that he was in the Good Friday play so I wanted to go and see him. But then I thought "Oh crap, I only have short skirts and shorts...I didn't pack a church dress"
What was I going to wear? I didn't want to get the 'eyes' from all the old ladies. You know that OH NO you DID NOT step into church wearing that-look.
So I pulled out my black skirt I packed for the reunion, a basic black shirt which is oversized (thank goodness for black basics; they always save the day) and this is what I came up with.
This picture was taken after church (an amazing, emotional service with the re-enactment of the Crucifixion of Jesus by the Youth of the congregation) with the view of Auckland's harbour bridge. It was such a beautiful day.
