These shorts are the same style that I have in two other colors; I've shown the stone-colored ones recently. To me, black is a hard color to wear in shorts, because if it's warm enough for shorts I want to be wearing lighter colors. Yet I really like the shorts, so I persevered in styling them this week.

The outfits:
1-2 (worn for a day off and piano lesson): black shorts (Lulu-B); off-white tank (Semantiks); black and gray print mesh knit cardigan (made by me); black sling-back Mary Janes (Think!); black satchel (Elliott Lucca, Olvera).

3-5 (worn for a day off, breakfast out): same black shorts and bag; taupe slub-knit cotton tee (Caslon); taupe cowl-neck sweater (AllSaints, Elgar); taupe low-heeled lace-up sandals (P. Monjo).

Thanks for looking! I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
