PHOTOS BY HE | ST MAARTEN

Team Suarez consists of both Dylana and I, either behind and in-front of the lens. Dy and I just get one another. We’re free to be our crazy selves. We’re sisters. There’s no filter in anything we say or do. As a model, I shoot with different photographers all the time, switching in and out of character, sometimes I’m more comfortable in front of an unknown lens, I get to act…but there’s just something about being photographed by the people you love, which allows you to really be yourself. There’s an ease. It’s rare my boyfriend photographs me, but this time on our trip to St. Maarten, I let him. I guess now you can call him an instagram boyfriend. He absolutely loves to take photos and really does have a fantastic, editorial eye. I let him have a little fun behind the lens and gave him full creative freedom with my 35 mm. Only he can think wearing a towel as a dress is elegant on me.

UP ON THE LAVENDER FARM

The Lavender Farm in Maui was perched high up on the hill in the middle of the island. On a morning so foggy, you could only see clouds rolling out into the ocean below. Peaceful. I couldn’t wait to awake my senses as scent and fragrances are some of my favorite things to discover. My powder room has a whole shelf dedicated to perfumes from around the world, lavender being something I love to lather on my body before bed. It’s a scent that just makes me melt. Lucky for us, the lavender fields were in bloom….they smelled so fresh and delicate. I wanted to pluck the whole garden and take it home with me! It’s a soft, feminine, yet so powerful scent. One to pluck and stick in a book to dry up to keep forever.

MY SUPERDRY: THE LONDON GUIDE

After my numerous trip to London for work, I finally feel like I’m connecting more and more to this beautiful city. I’m so excited to be sharing my own personal London guide here with British brand, Superdry. I’ve known Superdry for years here in the U.S, but I was beyond excited to get to explore the capital city of their home country, and share my own stories and experiences in this lively and super cool city. Superdry defines British chic with a mix of classic, sporty, and laid-back pieces. I lean to Superdry for their classically English trench coats, brilliant bombers, and fantastic summer staples. We’re talking super sweet smock dresses, matching leather twin sets, and extra slimming high waisted jeans. It’s at Superdry that I can grab and go for both basics and the not-so-basic necessities. London style, to me, is both classic and eclectic. It’s the birthplace of rock n’ roll. It’s also the birthplace to anything posh. You get the best of both worlds.

FRENCH/DUTCH | ST MAARTEN

I am excited to take you down St. Maarten memory lane. It was such an incredible getaway. Just my boyfriend, a 35mm lens, a car, and a whole island to explore in one week. We stayed along Cupecoy Beach…and I rank it by far the best beach on the island. Imagine crystal clear, calm and steady, turquoise water. Gorgeous white butterflies, fluttering their wings everywhere you turn. St. Maarten is part French and part Dutch. We stayed on the beaches of the Dutch side, where we indulged in fresh seafood and hours of swimming under the hot Caribbean sun. I tried snails for the first time..and liked it. Can you believe it? There’s an elegance to the island which I really love. The beaches. The hotels. The restaurants. I can’t wait to show you more. You get a real European summer feel with just a 3.5 hour flight away from NYC.
