Masoma Imasogie, The University of Pennsylvania

Shop Masoma’s Outfit: Softest Bonfire Sweater | Bonfire Blanket Scarf

What are your holiday break plans?
“My holiday break plans include a bunch of family, too much food (and left overs), a ton of laughs and everyone talking at once, hopefully a LOT OF SLEEP and simply bumming it out with my family and friends. It doesn’t sound too glamorous but I think its the best way to spend the holidays!”

Who are you most excited to see and why?
“I am most excited to see my family and friends from home all together. I think the holidays get even more exciting when you go off to school because coming back home, sleeping in your old bed and just having all that familiarity around you is one of the best feelings to me. There is always a period of time, maybe a week, when all the cousins and friends start piling into the house sporadically from there perspective universities and everything just feels right. We are all maturing and pursuing different paths but for a period of time, everything feels like ‘back to normal’ and everyone is happy– that is what I am most excited to see!”

What are your picks from Aerie?
“I really enjoy relaxing during the holiday season so my ‘must haves’ have to be 1. the Aerie Teddy Robe. 2. the Aerie Flannel Sleep Joggers and 3. the Aerie Cozy Neck Sweatshirt. The robe is super super soft and just makes you feel like a fuzzy Queen as you walk around the house. In terms of joggers, I’m obsessed with joggers. They are basically a fashionable pair of sweatpants and I am so down for that, especially if they are festive! Lastly, the sweatshirt’s funnel neck line is so ideal, it adds an unique touch to a typical sweatshirt and its name says it best, it is simply ‘cozy’!”

Favorite holiday styling tip?
“Layer layer layer. I am all about layering. I am NOT about the chilly holiday weather. So, I layer my socks, leggings under jeans and a long shirt under a sweater. The holidays are all about being comfortable and warm and I am all about being comfortable and warm…and trendy. Instead of changing my style, I just change my tactic and layering is the best tactic to look holiday and photo ready, while simultaneously staying cozy and warm!”

Favorite holiday gift to give?
“I think the best gifts to give are always something you KNOW the person receiving the gift will need or will wear. That being said, a lot of my loved ones will probably be receiving some Aerie Fuzzy Sock‘s this holiday season. Once the gift receiver(s) opens the fuzzy sock’s on the day of the holiday, he/she can wear them all day and all night– my gift immediately becomes used which is a plus! Also, throughout the fall and winter seasons, fuzzy socks are a staple must have! They can be worn, indoors, outdoors, whenever, wherever! This means my gift is practical, reusable and since it is from Aerie, its super good quality! I think its perfect!”

Going back home to Santa Cruz, spending lots of quality time with my family and friends, and definitely lots of eating and shopping!”

Who are you most excited to see and why?
To be honest, my dog. It has been months since I last saw him and I miss him like crazy!”

What are your picks from Aerie?
I’m obsessed with the hi neck bralette and the Aerie boiler suit – both are really comfortable to just lounge around the house in. They can also be styled up to wear out and about!”

Favorite holiday styling tip?
Pairing over-the-knee boots with sweater dresses. It’s a super cozy outfit to wear but it’s also very chic.”

Favorite holiday gift to give?
The Aerie Knit Scarf– scarves easily pair with a lot of outfits, as well as keep you warm & toasty. Functional fashion is always a great gift!”
