ELLE Russia September 2021 Issue.

My FRYE Fall 2020 campaign just launched this week and I am super excited. You know how much I have worn my FRYE harness boots. Lived in completely from the deserts of California to the cobblestone streets of Brooklyn. It’s amazing to be their face this season. Shot close to home in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, we styled my favorite pairs of rugged boots with classic 90’s simplicity. Turtlenecks…boxy jackets…little to no makeup. It’s like grabbing your boyfriend’s clothing, giving your hair a shake, and leaving the house on a chilly NYC day. I love tucking in a slouchy jean into an ankle boot or pairing a tall boot with a high waisted legging and menswear shirt. Easy. I will take this beautiful vintage car around Brooklyn to play in the park any day of the week. I hope you love this very beautiful and candid campaign. I think you will love it even more because it is a project with integrity that is working on giving back to our communities.
Thank you FRYE for always being an amazing partner with a purpose.

There are so many days where I walk out of the house to meet Dylana and we’re wearing almost the exact same thing, yet somehow we pull it off completely differently. We’re sisters. We’ve got that sister thing where we have the same eye and know what the other one likes. For our Moda Operandi x Suarez Sisters feature, the team tested our similarities and pulled out a great Givenchy black blazer/pant and Danse Lente bag in the studio. Both classics that we adore, to be styled any which way we chose. You’ll notice our love for beautiful tailoring though Dylana went for pops of color, while I kept things easy with statement neutrals. Speaking of neutrals, can we quickly talk about this Oscar de la Renta feather top and silk pant? I have never felt better in anything else. In this shoot, you’ll notice we’re supporting some of our favorite designer labels. Loads of Prada, Zimmermann, Malone Souliers, and more. On Moda Operandi we can shop our favorites pieces just days after the collections are showcased on the runway. How cool is that?
Dylana is currently out of town for her wedding anniversary and it looks like I’m hopping into the week without my other half, but only for a few more days! But that means more time for you guys and keeping you updated on everything that’s been happening lately. So much. Stay tuned.
Summer seems to be going by in a flash. I just wrapped up my latest work trips to Singapore and Chicago, and I am ready to spend some time at home, in New York. I have officially conquered all that was left of my jet lag, and now, I can really enjoy what is left of my summer before September travels start to creep up on me. I’ve needed a break from traveling so I intentionally planned my August to be one spent locally. I spend my weekdays in the city, with sunny Saturdays and Sundays out by the sea. The only reason to pack my duffel bag is for quick getaways to Montauk where I can surf Ditch Plains, shop at the farmer’s market, or simply go out dancing with my gal pals.
Take a peek at what a perfect wardrobe out east looks like, all of which I captured in PART 2 of my photoshoot for The Outnet. For this shoot, I wanted to celebrate all of the colors that make my summer feel alive. Think popping satin pink and bold tangerine orange. I also made sure to fit in my essentials: the All-American striped one-piece and the romantic eyelet white dress. But your eyes might head to the accessories, because they are va-va-voom! These Stella McCartney star platforms sure bring the glam to the down-to-earth streets of Montauk. The Outnet has managed to exceed my expectations when it comes to timeless, designer items that will live on from summer to summer like majorly sexy dresses by Dolce & Gabbana and adorable Maison Michel sun hats. Now which eclectic look do you love most?
