Happy Thanksgiving! Currently in bed with my eyes shut, recovering from my LASEK vision surgery. Didn’t want to go silent today, so sharing a look I love. I’ve been playing around with color combinations that I’ve been too scared to try before. Lavender purple and hot pink? Well, I say yes today. Which color combos have you been to shy to try? Give them a whirl someday on a whim. Your mind will be changed, just watch! 

Hope you all are spending the day eating a lot with those most important in your life 🙂

Tommy Hilfiger at SAKS

November 23, 2017


___

All looks by Tommy Hilfiger, available at Saks 5th Avenue
___

Plaid and sequins. Who knew? The new Tommy Hilfiger collection is right on point when it comes to bringing together what seems like two ends of a spectrum. I like it when a brand showcases its roots while at the same time going beyond the box. Tommy Hilfiger knows how to have fun, and he showcases this with this latest collection, which is now available at Saks. My sister Natalie and I had the chance to parter with the brand to style up some looks for you guys. This one here I have on here is in particular my favorite. The plaid puffer plays down the details of the sequined midi dress, while the creepers did an awesome job at giving the look some angsty attitude. A mishmash of personalities feels so right because what’s the point of making up your mind on one thing when you can have them all? I hope you enjoy this styling session. Look forward to much more from Team Suarez. I won’t be updating here for a few days because I’m getting my vision corrected with LASEK today, so I won’t be opening my eyes for a few days until they heal. Super excited for the results though, and to get back to you all with new content and words just in time for the holidays.

A Mind Full of Color

I’ve always realized how precious color is to my life. There are so many emotions tied to it. To each and every bit of the full spectrum. Sometimes the memories they conjure up are blurry in the back of our minds, but the emotions connected to them feel so present and real that we almost have to look away to remember they are just memories. That is how much color has a hold on us. That is why I am drawn to it so much. I pay attention to it so much. The flecks of colors in my boyfriend’s eyes. The tone of blue that the sky takes on at exactly an hour before sundown. The glowing orange of the candles that warm up my living room at night. The color of the walls of the Puerto Rican coffee shop at my street corner. They are all things I see on the daily and recognize certain feelings with, and reliably so. One color can have a million different meanings. The idea is wonderful if your really stop and think about it. No one color leaves the exact same level of impression every time it makes its mark. The interpretation is the beauty of it. And I keep wanting to find more colors to connect feelings to. A sort of tonal guide to life. Life feels a little easier to interpret when color is involved it seems.

And then there is winter, when color hides a bit more from us. Night hitting us earlier and earlier every day. Seasonal depression taking the place of a leftover summer high. For me, the quickest fix is looking for the colors of memories past in unexpected places. A window pane. A swipe of graffiti on the walk home. The guy in the fire red sneakers on the subway. The pink mugs at the matcha shop. A pair of mismatching dotted socks. The colors on the cover of a book that is reason enough for you to pick it up for a read. Look around you. Wear the colors that make you feel what you want to feel. Do both. There is always a reminder of something to be lucky enough to have, no matter what the season. Happy holidays lovelies. Let color be your guide this winter!

The M Missoni Stripe

November 16, 2017

___

Outfit by M Missoni
___

No one doesn’t recognize the classic M by Missoni’s take on knits and stripes. It’s what the brand is known for. Influenced by the rainbow, turned up on its head, and jumping back out at us in a way that makes stripes and color feel fresh to us again. It’s very easy for me to showcase how much I am obsessed with how M Missoni plays with color with their designs in the most imaginative ways. I keep wanting more! Against our neutral green and grey surroundings in the English countryside, we felt bold yet still in tune with nature. That’s such a hard combo to be able to commit to as a brand, but M Missoni does it, that’s for sure. I haven’t taken an international trip since this one, and I’m missing that feeling of going somewhere far and new. It’s addictive, and I’m surprised I’ve gone a month without travel! But NYC is always a happy place to stay put in. But it looks like it’s about time to get on my way again soon.
