It doesn’t actually matter the season, there will be black in my closet. And even though, if there is going to be color, it’s most likely to being during summer, I still gravitate to what I love… the color black. I think it’s pretty obvious if you look at my outfits. I also happen to think that black always looks good and appropriate for whatever situation.
One of the items on my summer wardrobe list was black jean shorts – denim and distressed were the qualifications. I found a pair of 501 Levi shorts at a Levi’s Outlet Store – actually I found two pairs (a blue denim pair too) that I haven’t stopped wearing. I can’t speak for all Levi’s but I l o v e the ones I have. They’re high waisted, frayed hems and fit just they way they’re suppose to.
Naturally I’m wearing my black Birkenstocks. A few years later and they’re still my favorite shoe; I even have the tan line to prove it. I’ve thought about buying a new pair, but why wreck a good thing?
I found my sunglasses in the men’s section of Target, but can’t seem to fine them online in either the women’s or men’s accessories. I kinda love the colored lens though. And a word of warning, this shirt is sheer. I know it doesn’t look like it, because it’s black. But it is sheer, but I happen to think that’s perfect for that hot, summer day. Black tank with black denim shorts with black Birkenstocks and black sunglasses – there’s my summer uniform.
In all fairness, I do love wearing one particular color (other than black) and it’s coming to the blog next week… any guesses on what that color might be?!
