City Gym Shorts in linen

As the seasons change, I always have a few things that pop up as a semi-urgent need. What I’m needing right now are some warm weather pajama bottoms/around the house shorts. I confess I wear my pjs late into the afternoon sometimes, so I want them to look decent enough to answer the door in or make a run to the mail box in with out embarrassment.

My ideal plan was to use two linen skirts in my upcycling bag to give me a pair of black and a pair of oat shorts. The oat color skirt is MIA, so black it is for now.

I think I got a great pair of shorts that work for casual wear and comfy pajamas too. Win win.

For my next pair shall I add pockets?
