Magnum P.I. Pants

I was instantly smitten with these very loud, tropical pants the moment I saw them on the Old Navy website. Oddly, it was a comment my husband made about the pants after I purchased them that made me love them even more. The pants were laid out on the bed and as my husband passed by he commented on the similarity between the print of my pants and Tom Selleck's iconic Hawaiian shirt that he wore on the classic 80s show Magnum P.I. Being a child of the 80s, I have fond memories of the show and of Tom Selleck. (I mean that mustache, come on!) So I took the off-handed comment from my husband as a compliment, rather than a dig. Now I just need a cool Ferrari and my look would officially be complete!

If you took just a quick glance at these photos, you might think that they were taken at the Paul Smith Wall on Melrose, which is another icon, at least for people like me who are obsessed with taking Instagram photos by colorful walls. A closer inspection, however, will reveal that this wall is actually not the signature shade of pink of the Paul Smith wall, but it's still pretty and pink. It is also located much closer to me in comparison to the Melrose wall and there was no one there, which is in stark contrast to the crowds of people that flock to the Paul Smith wall every day. Given this, I am just going to keep this wall's location my little secret!
