Red is Not Dead

I’m all about dressing like a confident woman more than ever now. I don’t know exactly what it is. Hitting 30 recently, I am in fact, officially a woman now. And creatively, I feel like my vision has come together into one that I trust deep down in my gut. It’s a feeling that I’ve strived to have when I was younger time and time again, but never fully reached it. I feel like I’ve finally come to a place where I’m extremely happy about where I am, where my strengths lay. Even the unknowns of the future keep me on the tips of my toes, and that lights a fire that isn’t one that is daunting and scary, but more freeing in a sense. A freedom of being open to the fact that I will be able to handle whatever comes my way in the years ahead with maturity and clear mindedness and a red hot passion. The color red is of course significant in this post. It’s less about the clothes and more about the feeling. It’s a color of desire, and man do I desire so many things in life. But at the same time, I am totally okay with the fact that I may never have them all. I’m more okay with knowing that what I do have is actually the greatest of them all. That’s what I wanted to get to here in this post. That desire to wrap your arms around what is exactly in front of you. No matter what shape or size or manner it comes in. The present has the greatest worth of all, so don’t leave it behind to quickly for the next thing. And now, I’m giving life back into my suede red pants because they make me feel like a confident woman. They shed light on my height, which I used to hunch over to hide. It took me years to start feeling like a bold, confident person. And here I am, so much closer to what I’ve dreamed of becoming that I ever thought I could be before. And because of that, I wear red.

Tommy Hilfiger at SAKS

November 24, 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.

Never Not Wearing This Purple Sweater

November 23, 2017

Outfit by Mulberry

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 🙂

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!
