Extra soft rompers and dresses are a total must these days. I can count on Anthropologie to really master these essentials. This is a lovely home story shot for Anthropologie featuring 3 amazing weekend essentials. What I love most is the infinite ways to style them. Throw on a baseball cap. Give it a knit around the waist or shoulder. Style it with a sneaker, or better yet, a pair of Birkenstocks. I never go without a delicate earring. I find myself lounging around the house finding new corners to take my conference calls and write in my to-do journal. These looks make doing stuff around the house feel like a total breeze. Now, more coffee please.
Meet my new outdoor studio! Team Suarez is really getting creative here at home and thinking out of the box, making the most of our home spaces. It feels so good to work from my rooftop, with the hot sun hitting my face. I’ve been playing with sheets to work as fun backdrops against the gorgeous blue skies. It’s just nice to safely work from home with a little fresh air.
There are still days when I swap out of my sweats and put on something pretty. This Ronny Kobodress is a classic. I own it in just about every single color and print. It’s so classically 80’s and pretty much the most flattering shape for all body types. It’s a garden party over here. I completed the look a mini silk handbag and large jelly hoops. I can’t wait to actually hit the town in this get-up.
Meet two stand-out summer statement dresses by Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. One, a hot red number made for salsa dancing, and another wrapped up like a perfect Grecian summer. I snagged these from the Preen Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear runway. You’ll notice the collection’s 80’s vintage inspiration with a perfectly-imperfect twist. Overly ruffled, overly layered. Every little detail counts with Preen, and I can spend hours counting them all out, but I’ll spare you. This is one designer label that just makes me happy the moment I slip into it.

I haven’t had the chance to attend a bachelorette party, since none of my close friends have gotten married yet, but I absolutely love the idea! And since fall weddings are actually a big thing nowadays, it’s most likely that a bunch of you guys will be having bachelorette parties to go to soon. And I’m inspired by the idea. I’ll take any reason to dress up for a girls’ weekend out. Of course, I like to go the more unconventional route with most things when it comes to fashion. Instead of the typical short party dress, how about something longer, darker and more dramatic? This month, I teamed up with Express to create my night on the town look. This Express dressis exactly what I have in mind for my future bachelorette parties. And it feels more fall to me than the typical party dress. Sleek, simple and striking. If I have to depend on a dress to keep me feeling party ready, the dress must be these three things. There’s something special about going minimal and monochromatic. Most of the time, the case is that less is definitely more.
