    No, we're not exaggerating when we say Natalie Suarez is our favorite M.O.D. Every time we team up with this professional model and on-point style blogger, we enjoy a little adventure in NYC. Usually, it's just a couple of blocks long, but this time, the beauty behind Natalie Off Duty coaxed us (and our photographer) all the way out to a part of the popular DUMBO neighborhood neither of us had actually seen before.

    We mean, we shouldn't be all that surprised. For an L.A. native, Suarez is pretty well-traveled in Manhattan (she's lived in five different apartments since she moved here two years ago). This time around, we got a nice early-morning tour of one of her ex 'hoods along with a few chic looks and a preview of her fall favorites (anchored by fall-appropriate Timberland boots, of course). All in all, a productive day.
