I was matching the decor here at the Equinox Hotels in Hudson Yards. Super simple black and white pieces are my go-to for a last minute staycation. Get on your white one piece, oversize mens shirt, little black dress, and red lipstick. Voila. Good to go for a weekend of fun. I am so ready for the next adventure.
I just wrapped up my trip to Miami Swim Week and boy, was it a blast. You could always find me here on our balcony at the Ritz-Carlton South Beach in between shows when I needed a quick breather. In the heat, I’m living in denim cut-offs. I’ve had this pair for years now and it continues to travel the world with me, making new memories along the way. I gave it a little glamour with a tweed jacket and oversize earrings, because why not? It’s Miami, and more is just more.
I remember visiting the ETRO headquarters in Milan a few years back and falling in love with every single print that draped the walls and the carpets. It remains one of my favorite Italian fashion houses. I spent the weekend with the brand and The Daily Front Row out in Amagansett in East Hampton. You could find me playing in the grass and staring at the clouds on a hammock here at The Reform Club Inn. Summer in the Hamptons is so green and so beautiful. I could bike around these streets all day long daydreaming if I could. For now, here is a little ETRO story in the Hamptons to get you inspired for your next weekend out East.
Team Suarez didn’t leave the hotel much during our stay at the Fairmont El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico. Between rainstorms, you could find me by the pool sipping a piña colada. This hotel is so iconic and has so much history. You’ll find details of its past in the lobby, which looked untouched. I just wanted to unplug and soak it all its beauty. This was definitely my Puerto Rico uniform: yellow bikini, head scarf, and sweat.
