I wanted to pretend that it was chilly by layering but who am I kidding, it was over 80 degrees in California and I was secretly burning up inside. Don't get me wrong, I'm thankful for this beautiful weather, but I just simply really wanted to wear this sweater.

Baseball Attire

Loving both of these outfits from head to toe! Especially the varsity jacket with the embellished cropped sleeves (possible DIY?!) and what about the matching houndstooth clutch and pumps?
The second image (need that sweater and the satin pumps!) reminds me of Sex and the City when Carrie dates the Yankee player and the girls are all dressed up to the max at the stadium.

What Started as Picking Flowers








(Free People blouse, Koshka cords, Dolce Vita boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Accessorize ring)

I love days that are completely spontaneous, and whenever I'm with Claire, they always are! Walking around our neighborhood in the village, we stopped to act like complete dorks and sniff the flowers and admire the pumpkins, before ending up at the local park...only to find a BREADED figure. Sooo yes, we asked a random dude to take our photo. Turns out he was a super sweet road biker from California! Eventually we befriended three really awesome road bikers (we're talking bicycles not motorcycles haha). Being the overly friendly chicks that we are, we brought them to our favorite Israeli cafe before making our way to Williamsburg. There we played guitar and sang our own versions of everything from the Beatles to the Red Hot Chili Peppers! THINGS GET FUNNIER. To ease our hunger pains, we opted for mini cheeseburgers at (off all places) WHITE CASTLE, which was the only place open at 2 in the morning. All I can say is, it was a totally random, fun night meeting new people, making music, and eating at the most legendary fast food restaurant on the planet. I swear this kind of stuff only happens in New York! Oh yeah, I wore a really awesome Free People blouse and boyfriend cords. These pieces always bring me back memories of that evening!

Doing the Disco






(Disco Pony top (made by Zoey of Make Shift Model), Alexander Wang trousers, Walter shoes, Rebecca Minkoff bag)

Right now, I'm obsessed with anything that sparkles. So it's a pretty amazing thing that one of my closest friends from Spain, Zoey Bittleston of the blog Make Shift Model, designs the chicest sequin pieces you'll ever see, and all under the awesome label DISCO PONY. She recently made this custom-made blouse for me (a cropped top version of the "Natalie" dress!) and shipped it to my NYC address in adorable packaging along with a sweet note made out to "Natalie Balls Suarez." I cannot get enough of this girl, she makes me laugh like CRAAAZZY. Anyways, I sported this gorgeous statement piece out for a night of events with two of my favorite girls: Claire and Christina. It was one of the craziest nights ever. Somehow 3 really amazing events for brands we all adore were going on all in the SAME night, and so we actually went a little nuts and stopped by all 3. The close proximity of each also helped get the job done! We started off with a yummy Swiss dinner with Silvio Liu, hopped on over to the Ray-Ban event (held at a synagogue, how awesome is that?) before dancing the night away at the Paper mag party (where I stole those awesome party pics). Yes, us girls can be a little on the wild side when we want to be. Luckily, I had on my Disco madness, which was a huge hit. Speaking of which, if you want a beautiful custom-made Disco Pony piece for yourself, make your orders now! You won't regret it! xx

From Miami to LA

3241
(The 'Miami' from the Vogue Eyewear/CFDA limited edition City Collection available at Sunglass Hut, C. Wonder Tweed Jacket, Theyskens Theory Top, Zara Pants, Sigerson Morrison Heels, Salvatore Ferragamo Purse)

I wore these sunglasses back in Miami when I was shooting for the Vogue Eyewear campaign and felt like these were absolutely perfect for Miami because they are so bright, retro and sexy all at once but that also means it's easy to incorporate them into my everyday outfit in LA. I'm such a huge sucker for gold so the gold accents make them so much more lovable. I love goooold..... (remember Austin Powers?)

Ombre Glitter Nails

312

I hardly ever paint my nails as I'm constantly using my hands (thus my nails are always short) but while I was in New York at Duane Reade looking for junk food on my first night, I couldn't resist all the pretty nail polishes. I remember seeing Alexa Chung at the CFDA/Sunglass Hut event the other time I was in New York, and her nails were painted in a glittery green polish. Although not ombre, I thought it'd be cool to try the ombre effect in glitter. It's a lot sparkly and glittery in person than in pictures.

A Studded Sunday Brunch










(Stylists Own studded blouse, J Brand exclusive color jeans, "The Bowery" Rebecca Minkoff for Vogue Eyewear/CFDA limited edition sunglasses (available at Sunglass Hut), Rebecca Minkoff bag, Dolce Vita shoes, Jewelmint necklace)

Sundays in NYC might be my favorite. What I noticed most is that New Yorkers walk A LOT slower than normal. I mean, no one really has a set place to go. Everyone is just a lot more relaxed. My Sunday was absolutely perfect. It was probably one of the most beautiful fall days we've had so far. I love just strolling around my neighborhood with friends, getting sidetracked by picture-perfect moments, and soaking in the city's beauty. I feel weekends are just for that. My friends Justin, Claire, and I spent our Sunday afternoon having brunch at an adorable hole-in-the-wall breakfast joint called MUD in the East Village. I live for breakfast food and this place had just what I needed. I ordered the sourdough ALMOND FRENCH TOAST accompanied by a mimosa and coffee. I nearly died it tasted so good. Of course, I also had a bunch of bites off of my friends' plates! For our low key brunch, I went with a classic studded button up and J Brand exclusive skinnies (100% of the net proceeds sold will be donated to City Year in their efforts to prevent high school dropouts.) Clothes with a cause, can you say AMAZING?! Plus, they're extra comfy and super hot. Another weekend staple? My "The Bowery" Rebecca Minkoff for Vogue Eyewear/CFDA limited edition sunglasses which I shot the campaign for! Sold at Sunglass Hut, these cat-eye rocker shades are already becoming a NYC must-have :)
