Hopefully this will be the last of my coat posts. But man, will I miss wearing this one coat in particular. It’s true that you always appreciate things more once you can’t have them. I saw the first buds growing on the bare trees in Soho yesterday, and a shift forward began in me at the exact same time that nostalgia started to hit. A cycle that repeatsa every spring awakening. In a way, it’s quite sad to say farewell to my coat rack and lazy days in bed hiding from the cold. This past winter was full of texture for me . . . the kind that comes in the form of woolen sweaters, striped trousers and a punkish studded belt. But it was also full of texture in the form of late night cuddles, dry and raggedy fingernails from the cold and the dog eared pages of old books from the previous summer that I only finally got around to finishing once winter approached its end. Winter seems so much sweeter when it is looked back upon, just as the upcoming summer seems so much more endless before it actually arrives. Then it seems to pass by in a blur. But this spring is looking to be one of exciting changes that will make NYC feel even more like home. Adulthood never felt so less intimidating than right now. It looks like I’m finally catching up with myself. But at the same time, I owe a lot of that growth to winters past spent inside hiding from the cold, with all the time in the world to contemplate words onto this computer screen. Those sentences were the things that kept me warm the most before I fell asleep at night to the banging sound of my old heater. So, winter, this post is in a little way an ode to you and your impromptu guidance of the direction of my steps into this spring. When the trees are covered with flowers, and no remnants of you are left behind, I will always remember you 🙂 And all the coats that you allowed me to fill up far too much space in my already bursting closet.

& Other Stories | Pink Manic Monday

April 3, 2017

& Other Stories, LA Collection sweater, top and skirt 
Ferragamo purse

I’m jumping into Monday in a mad hurry after having an entire weekend to myself with a giant to-do list and many home cooked meals, but it still seemed like I was lacking in the time department. Isn’t that what always happens though? I did get a good amount of things scratched off the list though, and I’m really in the mood to get back to the grind this week. I have a list of content stories I want to get up on here this week. It’s harder than one thinks . . . coming up with new ideas for the blog. My goal for this week is to really focus on some stories that I haven’t yet touched up on here. If you have any ideas, help a girl out! First off, boxing class this morning. And then a much needed hair cut. Much, much needed. Then back to work. There’s a #SuarezSister video coming your way soon that just needs a few last minute edits. Lots of things to do. This girl needs to keep busy while her boyfriend is out of town. A long distance relationship is hard, but we make it work. Facetime is a wonderful invention. 

So as I dive into this new week that is promising us higher temperatures here in NYC, let me show you one look we shot in Venice for & Other Stories‘ LA Collection. I was really falling for all the pink in the new collection, so I snagged this loose knit sweater to layer over a matching turtleneck crop top. Light pink and stark black is such a good combination to me. The girlish and the goth cancel each other out in the best sort of way. It just so happened that the streets of Abbott Kinney had an unlimited amount of pink walls to match my ensemble. Of course, we had to get some shots in here. The sun was radiating in all its glory today. It was a stereotypically perfect day to be in Los Angeles, and to dress borderline Barbie. If only everyday could be a day where it’s a necessity to match your surroundings.

Denim Long Legs

Austin, Texas. SXSW. Sun. Music. Fun. Beer. Denim. Tacos. Enough said. Only 24 hours in Austin might not seem like enough time to experience it all, but we just about fit it all in. I can’t get enough of this top by the new brand Where Mountain Meet. It was a hit when I wore it SXSW. Their debut collection is earthy and raw. Reminds me of a desert road trip. Everything I’m looking for when I’m shopping currently. 

Here are more pieces from Where Mountains Meet that I love:

Sezane Denim

Nothing more easy than a good pair of blue jeans and white menswear-style blouse. I like my blouse crispy white, a bit oversized and able to be tied or wrapped.

My mind and bones have been warmed as a result of a day free to frolic in Los Angeles. As soon as I step foot back home, I start to feel a little bit more relieved from the stresses of delayed subways, long commutes from north Brooklyn to South Brooklyn, overcrowded sidewalks, overpriced vegan food and french fries, overly sceney Soho restaurants that make me feel like I have to do my hair before entering, endless apartment hunting that is endless because nothing is exactly how I want it to be, winters that slap you in the face and heavy Whole Food bags that break on the walk home. Then there is the fact that there is never enough time to read a book at the end of the day, let alone on my long and sleepy commute. Time to get everything on my to-do list done in one weekend? Impossible. Man, if life could really be as simple as blue jeans and a white button down shirt. Los Angeles, thank you for being that simple combination for me. A little denim escape that encapsulates my mind for the few days at a time that I am home. 

Don’t get me wrong, all the annoying little things about New York City will never overshadow all the beautiful, amazing, substantial parts of it. But right now, I’m feeling very much like a L.A. Woman in her blue jeans and white blouse.
