Meet Shannon:
“I am a born and raised Florida girl that is a medical professional by day, fashion blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we are parents to a crazy Aussie mix and kitty. I created Upbeat Soles as a way to express my fashion juices that are held in by wearing scrubs most of the days. I also believe that fashion doesn’t need to cost an arm and leg and that you can look fabulous on any budget!”

What Inspired Shannon’s Look:
“I just love anything retro inspired, so I am super excited the trend is back this Spring! Aerie’s retro high-waisted swimsuits has definitely got me smitten! I went with their super fun hi-rise bikini bottom in the multi colored pattern, which is so perfect for Spring! I paired it with their crop bikini top in red! I just love the high neckline and the criss cross back is just too cute! I threw on my hi-rise festival shortie to make this look perfect for a day of cruising on the beach. I finished this look with a straw panama hat and mirrored sunnies!”

What to Pack for Spring Break

Good news, Aerie girls…Spring Break is almost here! After daydreaming about lying on the beach with our besties since, oh, December, we can’t wait to hit the sand and stay there all week (with plenty of sunscreen, of course!).

Obviously perfecting your beach style is an essential part of the week. Check out our packing guide to be sure you’re not missing any of the necessities!

Oceanside Stylin': 

We’ll be posted up on the beach all day, thank you very much! The Holly Scallop Bikini and a reversible bottom (perfect for any Aerie girl with commitment phobia), is sure to make a splash.

Don’t forget sunny day essentials like a hat, beach blanket and sunscreen – nothing ruins a vacation like a sunburn!

What to Pack for Spring Break

A hat and some Sun Bum balm has got your cutie bootie covered from the rays.

Cute Suit, Will Travel:

Sometimes, there are only so many days a girl can do absolutely nothing. We’ll be spending at least one day experiencing our Spring Break destination with some sightseeing! (Extra props for using your trusty map, but we won’t tell if you use your phone.) Break out your most adventurous swim style for the occasion – perfect for exploring!

What to Pack for Spring Break

You may get lost, but you’ll look great doing it!

Last Rays of Spring Break:

Spring Break, like all good things, must come to an end. Make your last day memorable by mixing it up and take some risks with your style! A mix-and-match look with a hi-rise bottom shows you’re up on Spring’s newest trends, and have the confidence to rock them! Get it, girl.

Pro tip: tote some extra sunscreen to your spot on the beach! It’s a good way to make friends…or to talk to the cutie the next towel over.

This Hi-Rise style will leave a lasting impression.

Happy Spring Breaking, Aerie girls!

Booty Talk! A Guide to Choosing the Best Undies

Big booty? No booty? Curvy? Flat? Every girl, and every body, is different — and that includes you and yours! Your personality, everyday activities and just the way you feel about things (at any given moment!) all shape your decisions about what clothes you like to wear, from top to bottom.

Although it’s easy to dismiss undies as just a garment you slip on before choosing your outfit, the best pair — best for you, that is — is more revealing of your personality than you’d think. Undies come in a wide range of cuts and styles, each with its own pros and cons. Which one is right for you?

If you’re feeling undie-whelmed by all the options, Aerie is here to help! Use this guide to help you personalize your search for undies. Take our fun quiz, then read more about the undies that fit you best!

Thong: Nothin’ but cheek! This is the most revealing style available and is great for fashion-forward girls who love body-con dresses and skinny jeans — but not panty lines. Super-soft stretch cotton and a low rise make our thongs extra comfy, even if you haven’t tried this style before.

Cheeky: If you’re not ready to go full cheek but are looking for less coverage than a bikini, cheekies are a great compromise. These undies offer just a peek of cheek, giving you a hint of sass. (Want to go a little further? The mini cheeky shows even more cheek while still offering more coverage than a thong.)

Bikini: Are you a classic kind of girl? The bikini will never go out of style, and for good reason — it provides a comfortable amount of backside coverage without sacrificing any cuteness. In a wide range of pretty prints and lace trims, this is a great choice for the girl who values a practical wardrobe but still wants a sprinkle of flirty, feminine style.

Boyshort: Looking for a pair of undies that can do double duty? Boyshorts offer a low rise but no cheek peek, and keep you covered from a flippy skirt on a windy day to lounging around the house and catching some zzz’s. All you need is a pair of boyshorts and some knee socks for an insta-lounge session after work or school. Underwear for loungewear. How easy is that?

Girly Short: If you’re a boho kind of girl, make your underpinnings match your free spirit by choosing the Girly Short style. These ultra-romantic undies have all the coverage of a boyshort but are made entirely of feminine lace.

Boybrief: So you’re wanting a little more than a bikini but not quite feeling the boy or girly short? The boybrief is a great option, serving up just the right amount of backside coverage. It’s a great choice for the sporty girl who has no time to worry about wedgies! And for those who want to fine-tune things just a teeny bit more, consider the Mini Boybrief, which keeps your curves in place but allows just a hint of cheek to peek.

Xoxo,

Aerie

Follow Her Friday: Laura Porter

We’re inspired each day by the stories you share that show how you’re #AerieREAL. This week we’re sharing the story of 23-year-old Laura Porter, a student at the George Washington University, and founder of SPEAK GW. A recovering ED warrior and advocate for change and body positivity, Laura works each day to provide resources, and raise awareness and attention to the problem of eating disorders specifically on campus. Read on below to learn more about Laura and to follow her journey!

Follow Her Friday: Laura PorterAerie: Hi, Laura! Thanks for chatting with us. We love SPEAK’s mission. What inspired you to launch SPEAK GW?

Laura: I wanted to create a space and a community where people weren’t afraid to speak up about eating disorders.  I am inspired by the community Proud2BMe and NEDA have built online, and I love being able to bring that community to men and women in college, because that’s what I needed when I was struggling. Organizations like SPEAK and Proud2BMe give young people the opportunities to use their voices and silence stigma, which really changes lives.

Aerie: Do you have a role model? If so who is he/ she and why does he/ she inspire you?

Laura: My role models are the men and women who share their stories so bravely with others and those warriors who fought internal battles with addiction, eating disorders and other illnesses, and won.  There are so many people I have met in treatment who I now see doing amazing things and successfully and bravely taking on life’s challenges one day at a time.  Those are my role models.

Aerie: After graduation, what is your ultimate dream job?

Laura: It’s my dream to speak to young men and women around the country and share my story of recovery from alcoholism and an eating disorder. I want people to never feel alone and to know that there is always hope.

Aerie: Do you have a favorite quote or mantra? 

Laura: My mantra is “speaking up saves lives.” It’s so true because when we share our stories and use our voices, we can reach people in ways that can change a life.

Aerie Anytime 3 Ways with Natalie Dressed

“The Aerie tank has become my new favorite top. I have worn it more times than I’d like to admit since it arrived in the mail. It’s so soft and has the perfect amount of slouch to it. I also love that you can see the lace of the bralette peak out, which adds something a little more feminine to the mix. The bralette is super comfy and is making me want to add many more to my wardrobe! These pieces can be mixed and matched with so many other things I own. One thing is for sure – they’ll make me feel much cuter and put together when I’m working and working out!” Aerie Anytime 3 Ways with Natalie Dressed

Lounging at Home
Aerie Anytime 3 Ways with Natalie Dressed

“I love that these yoga pants are super fun while still being neutral and versatile. I can wear them while working at home during the day without feeling like a slob and then throw on a pair of tennis shoes for an afternoon workout. They’re also great for lounging around the house on the weekends.”Aerie Anytime 3 Ways with Natalie Dressed
