1) Girrrrrrl, do we have a treat for you!
Check back on Friday for one of our best deals EVAH.

2) Wake up. Go out. Work out. Or not.
Our NEW! Gym to Swim collection takes a new spin on working out. Running on the beach or hiking by the lake? Wear our crop bikini top with a pair of our skinny skinny joggers. When you’re done sweating it out, take off the extra layers and jump in the water! It’s that simple.

3) Savor the summer
This watermelon, arugula and feta salad is SO yummy and SO easy to make. Take 3 cups of watermelon, ½ cup of crumbled feta and mix it in with 7oz of arugula. Top it off with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and chow down!

4) Mani Monday (& every day)
Nothing complements a cute outfit like freshly painted nails. This season, warm shades of coral, electric neons and pretty pastels are all the rage. Shop shades like Dream On & Flower Power in stores!

Real Talk with Ban.do

When we set out to bring you some of the cutest gifts around, there was no question that Ban.do was a perfect match! Between their fun, cheery products and positive message, it’s no secret why we’re obsessed with this LA-based powerhouse. We sat down with our friends at Ban.do to talk inspiration, staying organized and what it means to be #AerieREAL.

Aerie: Tell us about Ban.do! How did the company get started?

Ban.do: We started making one-of-a-kind hair accessories (think: flower crowns before they were a trend) that sold out pretty much immediately. The thing is, since they were one-of-a-kind, once they sold they were gone. So we began to make things in multiples, which allowed us to create accessible price points for every girl, and ban.do was born! We’ve evolved a lot since the beginning, but we’ve always been built on strong branding and the desire to bring fun products to all girls everywhere. We’ve always been very serious about fun!

Real Talk with Ban.do

Aerie: We’re obsessed with ban.do’s bright, fun aesthetic. What inspires the team on a daily basis?

Ban.do: Why, thank you! We find inspiration in a lot of places: Pinterest, Instagram, and our spectacular ban.do girl gang, to name a few. Connecting and collaborating with artists is one of our favorite things. We’re also inspired by our Los Angeles office, a.k.a The Ban.do Party House! There’s a disco ball wall, glitter wallpaper, and a pop up shop in the back: major creative fuel. When we’re not at the office, we love to explore LA by checking out museum exhibits, catching a movie at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, or treasure hunting at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.

Real Talk with Ban.do

Aerie: Staying organized can be tough at times! Do you have any tips for how to step up your desk game?

Ban.do: Totally! Our latest product line is all about creating the ultimate dream desk. The goal is to make your desk a place that totally works for you AND that you love looking at. Because if you’re not inspired, what’s the point? We love putting the “fun” in functional with cute desk accessories like pretty file folders and notebooks, bright markers and washi tape, and extras like colorful prints and tiny disco balls. Disco balls definitely increase productivity. Or at least remind you to have regular dance parties.

Real Talk with Ban.do

Aerie: Our ban.do collection is amazing! We know it’s hard to choose, but is there one product you’re REALLY excited about?

Ban.do: You guys, that’s basically impossible. But OK! We’re super excited about the I Am Very Busy Agenda, which is packed with magical things like compliments, stickers, a secret code language, and fun, weekly to-dos. People are obsessing over our agendas and interacting with them in really cool ways (see: #omgbandoagenda on Instagram), and we want to pop champagne and jump up and down about the whole thing!

Real Talk with Ban.do

Aerie: It’s no secret we’re excited to partner with a REAL company like ban.do! What does being #AerieREAL mean to you?

Ban.do: To us, being #AerieREAL means being who you are without apology and with a lot of celebrating and confetti-throwing. One of the phrases in our agenda is “Do whatever, be weird, it’s OK!” and we pretty much live by that. We can’t get enough of the individuality of our customers, who are sparkly, edgy, preppy, and everything in between. We’re all about inclusion, because that’s what makes things fun. And we just really want to be friends with everybody.

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!”

How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank

We’re all about fringe this season and you should be, too. Start by creating your free-spirited summer look with the Fringe Muscle Tank. The soft crocheted cotton, scoop neck and fringe trim, make it the perfect boho-inspired tank for the beach and beyond.

Check out how Lauren and Chandler styled our Fringe Muscle Tank below.

How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank

Meet Lauren: 
Lauren is a San Diego based freelance model, she enjoys spending most of her time soaking up the sun at the beach, while hiking, or just being active outside. Lauren has a strong passion for music, dance, and fashion. Lauren is inspired when people achieve their goals, while participating in what they love, and here she is doing just that!

How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank

What Inspired Lauren’s Look:
“This fringe top is perfect to throw on while going out for a day at the beach this summer! This top is not only a cute shirt but also makes a great swimsuit coverup! I chose to wear this soft comfy fringe top over my swimsuit top and paired it with loose comfy floral shorts. This is a great go-to outfit for a hot summer day at the beach!”

Meet Chandler:
Chandler Nehrt is just your typical small town girl turned passionate style blogger and fashion fanatic, to put it plainly.  Beyond her one-stoplight town Midwestern roots, she is currently a marketing student, concentrating on social media and brand management.  Her blog, Candidly Chan, is her primary creative outlet, where she aims to provide unique content, a good laugh when necessary (which is always), and above all, style inspiration to all those who may stumble upon it.

How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank

What Inspired Chandler’s Look: 
“I must say, tops like this one are my jam in the summertime.  A lightweight, fringe tank top is the ultimate easy-breezy summer staple to have in your wardrobe, don’t you agree?  I wanted to play up the effortless, music festival vibe of this tank, so I added a chic, wide-brim fedora and some of my favorite lived-in sandals.  I also decided to skip the plain blue jean shorts for some white cutoffs to showcase the big white-on-white trend of this season.  This look is perfect for nearly every summer occasion you can think of, and that’s what I really love about it.”How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank
