Why I Love Being Curious + A Casual Fall Look

All my life I’ve always been naturally curious. It’s one reason I used to love going on car rides with my parents as a child. I’d be fascinated by all the scenarios taking place outside my window. And I just observe in silence. Eventually, all that observing led to many questions and I’d bombard my mom and dad with them.

The first time we ever drove to New York as a family was an eye opening experience for me. I was enthralled by all the different communities from the suburban hills, to the lakes, bridges, buildings to the corner stores. It’s what sparked my interest in culture, art and history. I wanted to know what shaped communities, languages and the origin of all the different music we’d hear driving down a street in Brooklyn. I also wanted to know why New Yorkers drove so crazy but that question wouldn’t cross my mind until years later.

Today, I’m still just as curious. Which is why I love walking around my neighborhood and discovering new details. One which happens to be this stone pillar just chilling in the middle of a parking lot. Which we couldn’t resist shooting in front of because it contrasted with my outfit pretty nicely. I also find people tend to stop and watch when we’re shooting photos. A lot of times they ask questions and we’ll just have a conversation. It’s just nice. Nice to learn about the people who make up our community while I’m doing something I love.  Because as I got older I learned that it’s the people who shape the communities.

Satin Bomber Jacket by Azalea

satin bomber jacket, azalea, summer outfitsIt was freezing in Boston the other day. Well, it was 59 degrees but that’s chilly for July. The only good thing is that I got to wear my favorite satin bomber jacket from Azalea. I bought this jacket in the spring and have been wearing it so much until summer. I can’t believe this is the first time it’s making an appearance on the blog. Please forgive me for not sharing this little gem of a jacket sooner. It is on sale now, that counts for something, right?

The cooler weather also had me pulling out my favorite black denim which I paired with a black crop top. Before I knew it I had an all black outfit, clearly, I was feeling a certain way about the weather. However, my jacket was the perfect balance of color and texture. When wearing a lot of one color I make sure to mix items that have different finishes. So, of course, I threw on my favorite Marc Fisher loafers which shiny finish contrasted nicely with the matte finish of my backpack.

What do you wear on those chilly summer days?
