Weekend Activity: Rolling in the Grass

    Forgot to mention: I can fly too.

    It's Saturday woohoooo! What does that mean? Throw on a hat, some shades, and just roll around in the grass! hehe! Oh, and jump off a few rocks and do some cartwheels. Life's so much better this way. But most importantly, this weekend is going to be one big BLOGGER MEET UP! I'm super excited. You know what that means, photoshoot photoshoot photoshoot, 10 cameras on you at once, too many hot people looking hot, and just pure GENIUS. It's always good fun. Have a great weekend everyone!

Free People: NEWS!

    I am loving the new lookbook from Free People. Craving those ethnic prints and piles and piles of jewelry. And talk about some killer poses! As you know, I've been a Free People fan ever since it started. I drew inspiration from their catalogs throughout my teen years, never expecting that I'd land the cover of the Free People October '10 catalog, shot by my wonderful sister, Dylana Suarez (DREAM COME TRUE!!) I thank Free People for being one of the first brands to recognize me as a model and as a blogger.

    Now, I'm so excited to announce that my amazing big sis, Dylana of the blog Color Me Nana, is going to be working as a stylist at Free People in Philadelphia!

    I am so so proud of my big sis for landing this dream job at one of my absolute favorite brands. She is so perfect for Free People it's crazy! I'm going to miss her IMMENSELY!! She was the one who inspired me to create a blog in the first place and has helped me get to where I am today. I don't know what I'd do without her! Dy has been with me through the ups and downs all while giving me so much support and understanding. I'm going to miss seeing her everyday, but I know it's only going to bring us closer. Now you get the Suarez sister blogs from both an East and West Coast perspective! She's the best and I can't wait to see what she brings to Free People. I know it will be totally inspiring :)

Pure Serenity

    (Hallelu crop top, Volcom maxi skirt, Free People jewelry/Brooklyn Threads bracelets, MANGO bag, H&M x Hasbeens sandals)

    With all the crazy things happening in my life, I always take an hour nearly everyday to hike or take a walk around my neighborhood just to clear my head. This is one of my favorite places to walk up to. Dirt sidewalks, cracked pavement, oak trees, and lots of mountain. This time I went up with what I wore that day to take some beautiful photos. It was late evening and the light haze created a perfect glow for photos. I went with a beautiful flowing skirt by Volcom paired with a little lace top. For spring and summer, I always end up taking out all my bracelets and layering them on one wrist. I'm excited for more summery days where I can just throw on loose, bohemian pieces and feel totally at ease.

Happy Easter!

    (American Apparel dress, Hallelu crop top, Stylestalker blazer, Nine West shoes)

    Happy Easter everyone! I'm about to embark on a wild adventure to VEGAS for a short getaway. Okay, maybe not so wild, but I'm sure there will be lots of fun in the desert along with massive amounts of time spent in the jacuzzi. I've been feeling so lethargic lately. I now understand why my daydreams always involve hot jacuzzis. My body is like WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED AND WHY CAN'T I FUNCTION WITHOUT CAFFEINE?! I've been so busy this past week. Being on the go constantly can be tiring. But I'll admit, I had so much fun through it all. So many changes going on in my life as well, all happening at once. Exciting changes of course! But I look forward to just sitting back and doing whatever I want for the next few days. Same goes for my style. I'm down to just pack a few items for this trip and barely there makeup. My skin can use some rest. Here I'm wearing a new spin on the maxi dress: fitted and mid-calf. To keep things comfortable, I layered a crop top over it along with a boyish tuxedo blazer and stilts of wedges. There's nothing wrong with towering over your friends!

    Have a fantastic, relaxing Sunday. Many cool things coming out next week that I'm dying to share with you. You know I'll keep you posted!

Rustic Getaway

    I am in love with this editorial from Vogue Paris April '11! It inspires me to go on some crazy retreat in the middle of nowhere with nothing but grungy layers in off whites and rust colored shades. A head of salty ombre hair and a tan little butt isn't bad either! This editorial is too perfect. Rarely do I stumble upon one I really love.

    It's got me thinking: I need a vacation! I hope everyone's Easter weekend is going great so far. Today is my final day to knock out the last 3 short videos for Volcom (yes, working on a Saturday waa) then I really want to take a drive to through the desert tomorrow. We're thinking VEGAS. Can't wait for my own little getaway!

Overlooking the Santa Monica Canyons: SPECIAL GIVEAWAY!

    Everything grows better in California...

    Up to GIVE AWAY: this great pair of Big Star cargo jeans!

    (Big Star jeans, Herff Christensan tank, Hallelu cardigan, Vintage hat, Velvetine bag, Free People sunglasses/accessories)

    I took a long hike up the side of the road overlooking the breathtaking beautiful Santa Monica Canyon. It was such a gorgeous day: clouds with a crisp, cool breeze. Perfect escape from the valley area which was hot as an oven that day. I decided not to bring my huge Canon and instead went with my mini Sony "Bloggie" camera for the hike. My shoulder really needed a rest! Here I am wearing one of my favorite simple spring looks: a huge vintage hat and a bright printed cardigan over a great pair of cargo skinny jeans. I'm pretty obsessed with these Big Star jeans at the moment. They are soft as suede and have the skinniest ankle. I'm excited to shoot with Big Star early next month! But for now, it's GIVEAWAY TIME! woooohoooo!

    Starting today, I am GIVING AWAY this same style of Big Star jeans to ONE LUCKY READER!!
