What was your favorite part of the Cayman Islands? 

The incredible colors of the Caribbean actually made my entire vacation feel like I was stuck in this beautiful watercolor painting. It begins when you start flying over the islands. Looking down and seeing the perfect ocean blue waters with the white sand and coral reef is when you know you are about to experience something unforgettable. There where so many favorite parts, but as a favorite spot I would have to say Star Fish point. Surrounded by palm trees  and a white sandy beach, it is the perfect spot to disconnect from the real world and really enter into that island state of mind.

You travel all the time. What is your all-time favorite place to visit? 

Well, venturing to the Cayman Islands was my first experience in the Caribbean! Now all I can think of is when can I go back? I LOVE traveling and every destination has so many different special moments and experiences to offer. Continuously at the top of my list is the little town of Sayulita in Mexico. I love the energy there and the culture that it has preserved over the years. Even though tourism has increased a whole lot it still has kept its little surfer town charm, which is so enchanting. But when it comes to a perfect beach vacation, Cayman Islands seems to be the new untouchable! I have never experienced such sparkling beauty when it comes to clear waters and white sand between my toes.

Do you have any summer getaways planned?

Yes! Of course. I have so many on the list! A few destinations on my list include Barbados (like I said I need another dose of the Caribbean ASAP) and Costa Rica. British Columbia actually has so many road trip worthy trips as well. Tofino will be on the list for a Pacific Northwest getaway and maybe even a spontaneous road trip or two! Always trying to get away as much as I can. Travel gives me inspiration and energy and I am always the most excited to share new locations and take my readers to a new and exciting destination.

What are your top Aerie & AEO picks for vacay outfits?

OMG, both have endless options. Aerie and AEO have all the best vacation outfits, they are all easy breezy casual looks that are ready for beach and even nights out on the town. Here are my top 5, but it was hard to narrow down! So if I could the list would go on way longer.

– Bikini 

– Dress

– Beach Bag

– Sandals

– Denim Shorts

What makes you #AerieREAL?

OK let’s get real, for all my curly haired friends out there. Curly does not equal perfect beach hair, sadly! I have a hard time accepting my frizz and curls in its natural state. BUT in this video on this vacation there are a few shots where you can see that I had no other option but to embrace the real curly frizzyness that is my natural hair. Sometimes diving into the water and getting my hair wet just has to trump keeping my “effort-full undone waves” that I try and keep especially for photos. I love the #AerieREAL message and would also like to add that I take pride in my body, I always try to eat healthy and work out. My dad always said while we were growing up, your body is your temple. I think that is an important message to keep in mind, never overdo something to the point of being unhealthy. Stick to what makes you feel at your best because that is what your body deserves.

2016 Easter Outfit Guide

Easter Sunday is approaching, and that means you need to put on your Sunday Best! We picked out two perfect outfits to suit any of your Easter 2016 plans. Since the holiday falls a bit earlier on the calendar this year, we picked out looks that can work with warm or cool weather. Light jackets are our go-to outfit finisher this time of the year, plus they’re a little more appropriate for your Easter gatherings!

Whether you’re brunching, spending time with family and friends, or just relaxing this weekend (yeah, we know for some of you the meaning of Easter is chocolate bunnies and peanut butter eggs, all day!), you can spend your holiday in #AEOSTYLE. Keep scrolling to see our best Easter outfits, and hover over each look for shoppable links.

Girls: Sweet in Florals
Easter Sunday = Easter Dress Sunday. We never pass up the chance to slip on a pretty floral dress, and this Spring holiday is the perfect chance. Add a light bomber jacket to cover your shoulders, and finish the look with some strappy sandals!

 

Guys: Classic in Khaki
The key to a great Easter Sunday outfit for guys is to keep the colors simple! You can never go wrong with a classic pair of khakis. Pair your Active Flex pants with a grey henley tee. Make the look a little more formal by adding a pinstriped cotton blazer (or go less formal with some cool sneaks on your feet!).

How are you spending your Easter holiday? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to show us your end of summer #AEOSTYLE for a chance to be featured on AE.com.
