I love visiting Tegucigalpa (the Honduran capital) for various reasons. One of them is the weather. I can wear black you guyyys! And not sweat like a pig you guyyys! I’m not even sure if my blouse looked decent with the ruffle skirt, but I just had to wear it and closed to the last button. La Ceiba’s so hot and humid, gives ya Monica Geller-at-the-Bahamas hair…
I ended up looking very business-ready on top and very clown meets aztec on bottom. Worksh for me!

By the way, I was browsing through my old posts and my heart ached for a very specific reason: I reeeeally miss taking pictures out on the town. Unfortunately, La Ceiba isn’t nearly as safe as it used to be. I hate saying negative things about my country, but the situation reflects on my blog and I really feel the need to share it. A big camera + posing in heels is recipe for getting mugged, and I obviously don’t like exposing my younger siblings (aka TWF’s photographers) to danger. We used to hear stories of tragic assaults and kidnappings, but now they’re hitting closer to home. It’s a shame, because my country is truly beautiful and what inspires my outfits; I love sharing it with you guys! I hope this changes soon, but til’ then please forgive me for flooding this blog with bland pictures taken in private neighborhoods. Better than shutting the whole thing down, right?
This is why I’m extra excited about a trip I’m taking and will be blogging about. I promise LOTS of pictures!
