Although for the last 3 months, I've been living in dusters and enjoying 90 degrees with a sea breeze, I actually missed my lovely collection of Winter coats back home. And pants. I missed my pants too. Meeting up to grab a drink and see a movie with an old friend, the thought of jeans, a tee and a trench actually felt novel. But for the sake of creativity, I thought I would play around with these basics. Picking from my ridiculous collection of scarves (quantity is only tolerable if meticulously organized), I picked my favorite basic: leopard print.

Denim would have been fine but these new melon colored pants were calling me. Screaming at me. This being my first pair of melon pants, needless to say, I haven't yet figured out what goes with this particular hue... So I played it safe with brown leather accents and topped it off with a linen tee in a cowl neck. Since this "meloness" is practically painted on, juxtaposing the pant fit with a bit of drape up top gave this ensemble more balance. I can't stand seeing a girl in all tight clothing. My skin needs to breath! Just makes me feel uncomfortable for her.
These earrings were a gift from Theo while on Boracay Island. The turquoise and melon brought back a bit of the tropics today :)
And then parking in downtown quickly brought me back to the realities of the city...
Look at all these signs. That shit cray. I miss tricycles.
