Lost in Transition


I took the opportunity to roam around the city early one morning and I just felt this sensation over me. I felt like such a small person in such a big city. I've been thinking lately and I'm not quite sure whether or not I truly know and understand myself anymore like I once did. Perhaps I'm starting a new semester, but lately, I've been feeling lost in the rumble between work, school, and life. I feel so lost when I transition between all the things I need to do within such a short amount of time. Despite all the blur in my life, Explicit Affairs will always remain as my creative outlet. It's not so much of an obligation and responsibility as the other domains of my life. It allows me to share with you all the things I love, documented and archived into my virtual space where memories will never fade. While my life seems stagnant at the moment, I can only wish that my blog inspires you and others in some way or another. While I may be lost in transition, I can only hope that while I write and share the things I love, I can learn a little more about myself, my priorities, and where my heart resides. Most importantly, do what you love and love what you do. 

One thing for sure, however, is that I'm excited for the fall season. Chilly mornings and crisp evenings make the seasonal transition a little easier. For this outfit, I went with a basic crop top from Topshop and trouser shorts from Aritzia. I threw on my silk bomber from Whistles over my shoulders and that's just how minimalistic and simple this outfit can be. I actually scored this jacket at Bloomingdales for 90 bucks and it's 100% silk. (Don't you just love when you score amazing pieces at an even better price). For shoes, I opted for my meshed white sneakers, which I've been loving to death lately. They go with anything- dresses, shorts, jeans, anything. Look forward to seeing me style these sneakers more.

I deeply thank all of you who were with me since the beginning and all those who just arrived on Explicit Affairs. I hope you enjoyed this post and I'll see you in the next!
