Follow Her Friday: Vallena Lipske

We’re inspired each day by the stories you share that show how you’re #AerieREAL. This week we wanted to highlight an incredible story from Aerie girl, Vallena Lipske. Having overcome some serious adversity growing up, she’s grown into an inspiring woman who’s certainly worth your follow! Get to know more about her after this adorable pic of her and her pup.

 

Follow Her Friday: Vallena Lipske

Aerie: Hi, Vallena! Tell us a little about yourself!

I grew up in a small earthy town in Northern California. Growing up, I spent my time outdoors; playing volleyball, hiking, going to the beach, and hanging out with my best friends (we still spend all of our time together whenever we’re home from our universities for summer).

I think a lot of my values came from home; here we all respect and support each other for our strengths and differences. In fact, our most recent paddleboarding excursion resulted in myself paddle-sitting while our most athletic friend did the paddling (no judgments made).

I recently moved across the country to Pennsylvania (Villanova University) to pursue my goal of getting my Bachelors of Science in Nursing to become a Pediatric Oncology Nurse Practitioner. And I couldn’t be happier. I love everything about nursing, and helping others, it truly is my passion.

I’m now in the committee running one of the largest Special Olympics programs in the US and this next year, I’ll be the Vice President of Membership of my sorority, Kappa Delta. I can’t wait to welcome the next class of freshmen into Kappa Delta and share our values of respect, diversity , and confidence with them.

Aerie: What does #AerieREAL mean to you?

Vallena: To me, #AerieREAL means celebrating being authentic, unique, confident, and #unretouched, inside and out.

Aerie: What makes you #AerieREAL?

Vallena: At a young age, I was diagnosed with Stage Four Neuroblastoma. I underwent chemotherapy, radiation, and had an intense surgery that left me with a twelve-inch scar across my abdomen. I used to be embarrassed of my scar, but I’ve learned to love myself for all of who I am. My scar is now a source of liberation, pride and confidence constantly reminding me that I’ve been given the opportunity to thrive and help others.

As a college-aged girl, I know how difficult it is to be authentic and confident. But, living true to my values and surrounding myself with people who respect those values has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. In my opinion, that’s what being #AerieREAL is. Nothing feels better than being true to yourself, despite what others may think.

Aerie: Where do you see yourself in 3 years?

Vallena: In 3 years, I see myself working as a Pediatric Oncology nurse, giving the kind of care to children that I was so lucky to receive myself.

Aerie: What’s your favorite inspirational quote?
Vallena: “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” This quote (actually a question) by Mary Oliver, my favorite poet, never fails to remind me to be grateful for the life I get to live, and that I have the opportunity to choose my attitude and future each day. Follow Her Friday: Vallena Lipske Follow Her Friday: Vallena Lipske

Aerie: What has been your biggest accomplishment thus far?
Vallena: My biggest accomplishment this summer was becoming fluent in Spanish while in Spain. I got a glimpse of what it felt like to live in a foreign country with a different primary language. I know my knowledge of Spanish will make a great difference in the lives of my Spanish-speaking patients when I’m a nurse.

Aerie; Do you have a role model? If so, who is he or she, and why does he or she inspire you?
Vallena: One of my biggest role models is my “big sister” in my sorority, Brianna. She embodies what it means to be #AerieREAL. She’s proud of who she is and lives true to her values. She balances her academic life (she’s also a nursing student), social life (she was vice-president of our sorority last year and is an amazing dancer), and physical life (she exercises, always motivated by her health, rather than image). I’ve never heard her make a negative comment about her body, or anyone else’s. Her confidence and positivity radiate to everyone around her and make them more comfortable in being who they are. Follow Her Friday: Vallena Lipske Follow Her Friday: Vallena Lipske

Aerie: Favorite song to listen to in the car or working out?
Vallena: The song “Roar” by Katy Perry never fails to leave me with that I can do anything feeling.

Aerie: What’s your favorite part of the day?
Vallena: The morning 100%! I love having a cup of coffee, watching the sunrise, and thinking about all the possibilities the day holds.

Follow Her Friday: Vallena Lipske Aerie: Do you have a secret talent, skill or quirk? Do tell!
Vallena: I absolutely love dancing, but not your typical dancing. Not the kind of dancing where you take a dance class and you’re told what to do. Not the kind of ballroom dancing that I did in middle school. Not even the kind of dancing at our sorority mixers. I’m talking about around the house while doing dishes, dancing on the porch jumping up and down, scaring your brother in the other room dancing.

4 Quick tips to transition your summer #AEOSTYLE to fall

We all know it’s not an easy feat to transition your fave summer pieces into your fall wardrobe. And if you’re anything like us and not exactly ready to pack away your favorite denim shorties and sundresses, then your’e ready for a few quick tips to seamlessly kick off your fall #AEOStyle!

Here are four ways to effortlessly transform your summer style to fashion forward fall looks:

1. This may be the easiest piece to transition! Simply pair your Destroyed Jeggings with booties and an over-sized sweater and you’re set.

2. Add a military jacket over your fave sundress or wear a long sleeved t-shirt underneath for cool autumn #AEOStyle.

3. Tights worn under Denim Shorties with a killer pair of booties, why not?

4. Take your lightweight Crew Sweater (see below) from summer nights to autumn days! Wear over a maxi dress or simply pair with utility pants and an oxford for an updated fall look.

5 fashion bloggers show us how they wear our newest obsession: denim X

Introducing Denim X… our best fit ever.

Revolutionary high performance stretch that’s softer than ever before. Never loses its shape… so you can show off your assets all day (and night). Designed with Lycra Invista stretch to move with you.

Emily from Life with Emily
“Denim is a part of my daily wardrobe. I am definitely what you call “a jeans girl”, so when I am looking to purchase denim I have high expectations. American Eagle Outfitters’ Denim X exceeded any and all expectations I had. Not only is the wash a great color, the stretch is just enough without it feeling too tight (or getting loose by the end of the day like other denim does)! Denim X has quickly become one of my favorite pairs to wear.”

Jessica from My Style Vita
“When I think of fall essentials, I think of this outfit to a tee. A great hat, a cozy knit sweater, moto boots and comfy, great fitting, dark wash skinny jeans. These are not only flattering, but beyond soft and comfy. I love the high rise on these as it helps to slim you out and keep everything held in!”

Megan from From Lush to Blush
One of my biggest pet peeves in denim is when the ankle on skinny jeans is baggy and I am so excited that I finally found a cut that fits my ankle (and everything else) right: Denim X by American Eagle Outfitters. Since it’s not quite that cool yet, but it is mid-September, I wanted to showcase two ways to wear the same jeans and top to bring the look from summer to fall.
