Meet Stephanie: Stephanie is a twenty-something, former ballerina turned PR pro living in South Florida. Addicted to fashion, she started her blog, The Style Bungalow, in March 2014 as a way to share her personal, relatable style, inspirations and thoughts. She believes the choices you make in your day-to-day outfits can send a powerful message. From cool confidence to chic and sophisticated to free-spirited and creative, she feels it’s important to reflect who you are and what you feel through your personal style. When she’s not home blogging, working or dancing the night away, Stephanie can be found running around town searching for cool pieces, spending time with her friends or soaking up the Florida sun!

What Inspired Stephanie’s Look: “These jeans are perfect. I’m petite, about 5’2”, so finding a pair of flares that fit my frame without any alterations is rare! I love how they fit slim through the thigh and slightly flare out from the knee, making my legs look a mile long. They also have a cool, worn-in feel to them and the stretch-denim is very comfortable.

I styled these flares with a chunky knit sweater and a chic belt cinched at the waist with block-heeled sandals to add height. I layered on lots of rings, wore my favorite gold watch and a pair of aviators.”

Real Talk With Fo Porter

This Pilates powerhouse was made for our new Aerie Studio faves. Read on and find out what makes this freckle-faced beauty #AerieREAL!

Real Talk With Fo Porter What music are you currently listening to?

Forever Jeff Buckley and Gwen Stefani.

Lover or fighter?

Passionate, so both.

Breakfast in bed or dinner out?

Dinner out!

What are you reading?

I read graphic novels. I’m a huge comic book nerd.

What makes you really laugh?

My fiancé, when he’s not stuck in his head and being a hard ass all the time. I like when he’s goofy.

Real Talk With Fo Porter

Shop Fo’s Look: Hi-Neck Sports Bra | Outta-Sight Shine Mini Boybrief Undie

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Celebrity tabloids, but the real stuff, not the weird stuff you see in The Enquirer. The “real” stuff!

What does the world need more of?

Love and equality.

How does it feel to know that you won’t be retouched?

It’s empowering because it’s real. It’s something that people take for granted when they look in a magazine.

Do you think retouched images have an impact on young women?

I think a lot of kids don’t even know what retouching is. It’s sad because they don’t get it, and they get older and think it’s ok. Just being comfortable in your own skin is a really big thing that should be happening.

Yea, I knew this girl who had a crooked tooth, and that “made” her.

Yea! Me having my freckles, people would always say “Did you not like your freckles when you were younger?” They would always try to put it down.

Because that’s how they deal with things.

Yea! But no, I’ve never been insecure with my freckles. Ever. I’ve always embraced them.

What makes you #AerieREAL?

I feel like as I get older, I’ve grown into a more womanly body and that makes me #AerieREAL. “I’m a woman, hear me roar!” kind of a thing. I like my curves and I like being able to look at myself in the mirror and not feel like “Ugh, I wish I could do this and this.” We all have our insecurities, but I’m definitely comfortable in my skin.

How To Style The Tomgirl Jean With Vanilla Extract

At AEO, we’re all about celebrating new denim in 2016. From fits to washes, we’ve incorporated new design into America’s #1 brand of jeans. To help us celebrate, blogger Nichole Ciotti from Vanilla Extract styled some of our favorite fits in a three part blogger series. Today’s style is all about the Tomgirl jean. Get to know Nichole and the inspiration behind denim look number 1 below.

Processed with VSCOcam with e5 preset

Meet Nichole: Nichole Ciotti is a 20-something year old entrepreneur living in the San Francisco Bay Area. When she’s not traveling or exploring the Bay Area, you’ll find her working on a new social media app with her boyfriend, Brian. The two both share a passion for photography and love spending their weekends shooting in undiscovered places. Nichole’s style can best be described as “simple, but dynamic,” which she shares on Instagram and her blog, Vanilla Extract.

What Inspired Nichole’s Look: “This year, I’m experimenting with lighter denim washes and comfortable fits. I can’t get enough of these distressed Tomgirl jeans because they strike the perfect balance between a skinny jean and true boyfriend jeans. The fit makes me feel feminine while still exuding a relaxed look that is perfect for a fun day with friends. This lighter wash inspired me to create a winter white look complete with a chunky off-white turtleneck and nude pumps. The pumps elevate the look from day to night giving us all a reason to take those Tomgirl jeans out to dinner for date night.”

What to Wear on New Years Eve

“This look is so perfect for New Years. If you’re spending the night out on the town and spending hours waiting for the clock to strike midnight, you want to be comfortable, but also super stylish. I love the layering of the plain tee under the dress and adding this awesome fur vest. I added some sparkle with a statement necklace, ’cause New Years is all about the sparkle, and over the knee boots to dress it up even more.”What to Wear on New Years Eve

“I don’t know about you, but I am such a homebody. There’s nothing better than staying in with a warm cup of hot chocolate and cuddling with the one you love. I am obsessed with rompers. Like, I have at least 30. It’s a problem. This lounging romper is so great to wear around the house, and paired with this fluffy robe it’s seriously like I’m a human marshmallow.
