Weekend Activity: Rolling in the Grass

Forgot to mention: I can fly too.

(H&M tee, Raven jeans, Cole Haan sandals, Free People sunglasses, Vintage hat)

It's Saturday woohoooo! What does that mean? Throw on a hat, some shades, and just roll around in the grass! hehe! Oh, and jump off a few rocks and do some cartwheels. Life's so much better this way. But most importantly, this weekend is going to be one big BLOGGER MEET UP! I'm super excited. You know what that means, photoshoot photoshoot photoshoot, 10 cameras on you at once, too many hot people looking hot, and just pure GENIUS. It's always good fun. Have a great weekend everyone!

Free People: NEWS!

I am loving the new lookbook from Free People. Craving those ethnic prints and piles and piles of jewelry. And talk about some killer poses! As you know, I've been a Free People fan ever since it started. I drew inspiration from their catalogs throughout my teen years, never expecting that I'd land the cover of the Free People October '10 catalog, shot by my wonderful sister, Dylana Suarez (DREAM COME TRUE!!) I thank Free People for being one of the first brands to recognize me as a model and as a blogger.

Now, I'm so excited to announce that my amazing big sis, Dylana of the blog Color Me Nana, is going to be working as a stylist at Free People in Philadelphia!

I am so so proud of my big sis for landing this dream job at one of my absolute favorite brands. She is so perfect for Free People it's crazy! I'm going to miss her IMMENSELY!! She was the one who inspired me to create a blog in the first place and has helped me get to where I am today. I don't know what I'd do without her! Dy has been with me through the ups and downs all while giving me so much support and understanding. I'm going to miss seeing her everyday, but I know it's only going to bring us closer. Now you get the Suarez sister blogs from both an East and West Coast perspective! She's the best and I can't wait to see what she brings to Free People. I know it will be totally inspiring :)

Think Better in Pink

(Vintage denim shirt, gifted J Brand Skinnies, Kelsi Dagger Zipper Heels, gifted Rebecca Minkoff Clutch)

Two denim shirt post in a row! These were actually taken last week and I remember everyone at work (including non-gay architects) mentioning how much they liked my pants. I love embracing color and the easiest way for me to wear it without being too out there (although I don't really mind being too out there at times) is making it more casual by pairing it with the most casual thing in my closet, a denim shirt.
I'm off to LA for the weekend to search for apartments so wish me luck!

It's Both Sunshine and Mist

(Vintage Denim Shirt, Lush Polka dot Top, Blank NYC skinnies c/o AlainnBella, Mink Pink Sunglasses c/o Market HQ, Grandma's Wooden Necklace, Mom's Golden Chain Necklace, Anarchy Street Cuff, Amrita Singh Rainbow Cuff, Citizen & Cartier Watches)

Just to answer a few frequently asked questions:
1) I do wear all the outfits from my outfit posts. However, I always keep a jacket with me since I'm one of those Californians who's always cold even when it's warm out.
2) Somebody asked if I get 'bunions' since I wear high heels all the time and omg, I just googled-imaged it and no, I don't have bunions. The trick to wearing heels is to wear ones with platform heels or wedges and I always have insoles inside.
3) I don't work out at all but I walk and talk a lot which I think helps burn calories

Pure Serenity

(Hallelu crop top, Volcom maxi skirt, Free People jewelry/Brooklyn Threads bracelets, MANGO bag, H&M x Hasbeens sandals)

With all the crazy things happening in my life, I always take an hour nearly everyday to hike or take a walk around my neighborhood just to clear my head. This is one of my favorite places to walk up to. Dirt sidewalks, cracked pavement, oak trees, and lots of mountain. This time I went up with what I wore that day to take some beautiful photos. It was late evening and the light haze created a perfect glow for photos. I went with a beautiful flowing skirt by Volcom paired with a little lace top. For spring and summer, I always end up taking out all my bracelets and layering them on one wrist. I'm excited for more summery days where I can just throw on loose, bohemian pieces and feel totally at ease.

Ruffles and Scallops

(Chiffon Blouse c/o Bamboo Sky, Forever 21 Scalloped Linen Skirt, gifted Bimba & Lola Cuff, Cartier & Citizen Watches, Marc by Marc Jacobs Bracelet, Prada Wallet, Joe's Jeans Leopard Wedge Sandals)

I have a soft spot for great details. I have about 20 white blouses (maybe more) but all of them are different from one another and the cut offs on this blouse seem quite romantic. The red skirt is a recent buy from Forever 21 and I love the linen fabric that wrinkles over time and the scalloped hem. More pictures on Minkette
