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.
A few portraits taken in my home this week after a long work day with Team Suarez. Find a reason to put on a pretty pair of earrings and your most elegant knit. I promise, you will feel amazing and inspired. I’ll be here, doing as much as I can during this time at home, while dreaming of how I will live life once things begin to feel a bit more normal. I hope our new normal is more conscious and thoughtful. This slower pace has brought me a peace of mind. I have never been home in one place for so long. I’m usually out traveling. I’m usually running from meeting to meeting. I feel lucky to be safe while there is still so much uncertainty in our world’s future. I’m using this time to live in the moment and do more of what brings me joy. I’ve been singing. I’ve been dancing. I really have reconnected to things that are so close to my heart and to my soul. I finally get to have long phone calls and Facetimes with dear friends and loved ones, just because. It’s amazing how now, with our isolation, I have found a real sense of togetherness with everything around me.
