OOTD: Black for Summer

My favorite color to wear is black. I know, I know, that’s a lack of a color. But it is so sleek and I just can’t get enough!

That being said, black is not the most summery color. To make it work for summer, I had to get a little creative.

These black crochet shorts were a gift from my friend Sarah. I’ve never been a big crochet person but I instantly fell in love with these shorts. They hit at the most flattering part of my leg, they’re black and they still work for warm weather! Best yet, they’re “dressed-up” enough so that I can wear them with wedges and not look trashy. These black strappy wedges are from Payless Shoesource and are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned!

I added this black long-sleeved shirt from H&M. The outfit would also work with a black t-shirt, but because the shorts are fairly short, I wanted to be more covered-up on top.

Monochrome black can get boring, so I added a pop of color with this turquoise Ettika “Still Surprise You” choker. Turquoise is so trendy right now, and it’s definitely more summery than black!

I also wore some gold Forever 21 rings on my left hand, in addition to my Tiffany’s right-hand ring.
