Erin’s Outfit Of The Week: Winter Whites Are Coming!

Oh (cold) snap! There’s no escaping it: it’s November, temps are dropping and winter is coming… but so are winter whites! This week, Erin shows you how to transition into outfit whiteouts by mixing in subtle neutrals until winter is officially here.

Our Flowy Nightie was designed as sleepwear, but there’s no reason you can’t show it off and wear it out, too. Its v-neck silhouette is the best excuse to show a subtle pop of color with your lavender Lace Strappy Racerback Bralette underneath. Match with a Bikini Undie in the same shade for the prettiest pair.

Erin’s Outfit Of The Week: Winter Whites Are Coming!

To stay warm, layer with a taupe Bonfire Vest. We know we say it a lot, but we mean it. This soft knit blend is COZY! Then get even warmer with a Supersoft Beanie on top. On the bottom, keep the winter whites going with our plaid Boot Socks. Wear AEO’s Slouchy Tall Boots over them to bare a little leg but stay mostly covered for the season.

Seal your look with a Letter Pouch (online Thursday!) for a Very Aerie approach to winter whites. Cozy up, cuties!

Wedding Day Essentials: The Bare Bra

When your wedding day rolls around, having the right undergarments will make a world of difference. Whether you need strapless, backless or a little push up, our bra accessories have got you covered. Looking for a seamless finish? Our Outta-Sight collection is tagless and smooth for zero undie lines.

Megan from The Things She Sees gave us a sneak peek into her big day and talks the importance of choosing the right undergarments.

Meet Megan:
Megan is a lover of all things beautiful: style, home design, projects, but most importantly beautiful and meaningful lives. She is the Founder and Editor of The Things She Sees, a lifestyle blog that covers everything from date night outfits to home improvement projects, all the while aiming to inspire others to also see the beauty in their lives!

Wedding Day Essentials: The Bare Bra

“I wish I could say that everything went smoothly when it came to choosing my dress, but it definitely did NOT. I had some major fit issues as my upper body doesn’t quite match in size with my lower body (you know what I’m sayin’?!) and while I’m not complaining, it made for some tough fittings! The Bare Bra Pushup was a lifesaver on my wedding day to help boost me up top but also last me throughout my honeymoon for all of my low-back dresses.

Aerie undies have been my favorite for years for the simple fact that they’re undoubtedly the most comfortable! Most brides gravitate towards everything WHITE when it comes to the countless parties, showers and events you have during your special time so a comfy nude no-show panty is a must, like the Outta-Sight Thong!”

“I wish I could go back and celebrate our big day over and over again! A year and a half’s work of saving, planning and organizing culminated in the most beautiful ceremony full of intimate details with my new husband. The best part? Having an epic dance party with everyone until last call!”

5 Healthy Breakfasts

Today’s CHAARG (Changing Health, Attitudes & Actions to Recreate Girls) post is for the on-the-go girl. When you’re busy, it can be tempting to choose the fastest, easiest breakfast option instead of making breakfast every morning. Though convenient, those grab-and-go options are not always the healthiest choices, and buying them can really add up. Today, we’re bringing you 5 healthy, homemade options for breakfast on the go! Each of these recipes can be prepared the night before or over the weekend to save you precious time in the morning.

Chocolate and Raspberry Breakfast Quinoa

Makes 2 servings

½ cup quinoa

1 cup + 2 tbsp milk (I used cashew milk, but any milk will work!)

2.5 tsp cacao powder

½ tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup raspberries

1 tbsp cacao nibs

1] Bring ½ cup of quinoa and 1 cup of milk to a boil in a small pot. Once it boils, stir and reduce the heat to a simmer.

2] Cook the quinoa until all of the liquid has been absorbed, about 10-15 minutes.

3] Place the quinoa in a medium-sized bowl and fluff with a fork to cool.

4] Add the cacao powder, vanilla extract, honey and remaining milk to the quinoa and stir to mix. Depending on the milk you used, you many want to add a touch more honey for sweetness—your call!

5] Transfer half of the quinoa mixture to a bowl, top with the raspberries and cacao nibs and eat up!

2] Add in the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. You’re aiming for a very thick smoothie that can be eaten with a spoon, so try not to add additional liquid or you’ll end up with a soup.5 Healthy Breakfasts - How To Make: A Kale, Berry and Chia Acai Bowl

How to Style a One-Piece Swimsuit

The One-Piece swimsuit isn’t for the timid. Between the bold prints, fun cut-outs, crisscross backs and crochet details, we’re clearly not afraid of a challenge.

Jessica from The Steele Maiden styles her favorite Cross-Back One-Piece by pairing it with our Beach Tank and Short.

How to Style a One-Piece Swimsuit

What Inspired Jessica’s Look:
“My motto for the beach is casual and comfortable.. but still cute!  I loved the relaxed fit on these breezy shorts and this sweater tank is so easy to throw on, plus it was easily dressed up with jeans and heels to head out to dinner later that night. And I can’t get enough of Summer hats like this straw fedora – stylish and practical, it’s a win win.”
