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.
I took a mini getaway here to the Nemacolin resort in Pennsylvania with The Daily Front Row! I spent most of my afternoons on the tennis court even though there were endless things to do on the property between swimming, time at the spa, or chilling at the ice cream parlor. Yes, there’s an ice cream parlor, shopping mall, zip lining, and even a vintage car show to keep you busy along with acres of beautiful open land to roam. The list goes on and on. You sort of have to pinch yourself while you’re there because it’s all pretty unreal. There was anything and everything imaginable to do at Nemacolin and I honestly didn’t want to leave. I recommend staying in the Chateau if you ever make the visit! It really feels just like Paris.
Only in Hawaii will you find me wearing iridescence and florals. It’s very rare to find me sashaying around in a floor length dress, especially these days. But I was inspired by this piece and how it resembles the energy of the sea. The way it sparkles. The way it moves. The way it makes you feel beautiful.
