The sweatshirt just got majorly elevated thanks to a new designer I love: Maggie Marilyn. Check out these finger length sleeves of my sweatshirt draping casually and a bit messily over a most decadent ruffled skirt (that is actually a dress!), also by the brand. I slipped on a pair of Christian Louboutin heels to complete the look because Paris Fashion Week makes me want to go that little extra mile when it comes to luxury. Red bottoms for the win! Now this is a look that I want to get up and go do things in. And trust me, Team Suarez has been doing a lot lately. We never stop! It’s come to a point where I have to pencil in the normal stuff like dinner with friends and simply attending a workout class. And trust me, I always make time for the normal stuff because it’s the best part of my day. Every one of my days is different and it seems every one of my hours has a “schedule” and sometimes I just want to click the pause button. There are weeks where I could be living in a hotel in a new city, or here in home base of NYC…early mornings checking emails, afternoons shooting, followed by evening meetings and press events. Team Suarez has been extra busy lately, but never busy enough for what’s important to feel on top of our game.
I’ve been spending my “off duty” time finding my balance, feeling clarified and more centered. I’m beginning to become more free and less “planned” when it comes to getting dressed and shooting looks. The more my business grows, the more responsibilities I take on. Getting dressed and shooting and being a part of the creative process suddenly becomes the fun and easy part of my job. With being back home, I love finally being back in my routine of desk time, fitness time, boyfriend time, and friend time. I love to go, go, go yet sometimes wish I didn’t have to always check my clock. With that, I’ve really become more aware of how I can add a little more wellness into all parts of my life so that I can feel balanced, strong, and mentally inspired. With what I do, self-care is more important than anything. I like trying new things and seeing how it has a positive impact on my daily life: think more family time, vitamin boosters in my smoothies, and that extra hour of sleep. It’s the little things that keep me going to feel good….giving me the energy to accomplish so much more on the daily. Now, I can’t wait to hit the snooze button for a hot second. But let’s get one thing off the agenda, what am I going to wear tomorrow?
