“I have been living in Aerie’s comfy basics lately and love the stand they are taking with their #AerieREAL campaign. It’s so important for us to remember that we are enough and embrace our differences. We have all had those days where we wanted to change something about ourselves but you grow to appreciate your differences and I admire Aerie for supporting that.”

Erin’s Look of the Week: Travel Faves

Our stylist, Erin, is the brains behind the amazing looks that come out of our photoshoots and so much more. Every Monday on our Instagram, she brings the styling to you and features her fave look of the week. We can’t tell you about ALL of the goodies in just one Instagram caption, so check the blog every Monday for more info on Erin’s looks!

This week, it’s all about travel faves. The end of August means it’s time to get back to school, back to work and back to reality. Whether you’re packing up the car for a long drive to campus or heading home from summer vacay on a short flight, Erin’s look proves that your travel outfit can and should be both practical and cute.

Erin’s Look of the Week: Travel Faves

Get Erin’s Look: Striped Tennis Polo | Sunnie Lightly Lined Bra | Ribbed Beanie | Signature Boybrief | Utility Jogger

Keep it casual in a Striped Tennis Polo (it comes in 4 other colors and psst it’s on sale for $20!) paired with a Skinny Skinny Jogger. The Skinny Skinny is our newest fit in joggers, and we love the extra slim fit update to this favorite style. Have a Beanie in your bag for AC blasts at the airport or as a backup for bedhead after a long day in the car. Underneath, it’s still all about comfort. Sunnie Lightly Lined is our #1 T-shirt bra that you have to feel to believe, and you’ll have a hard time believing you’re even wearing a bra. She’s THAT good. On the bottom, our Signature Boybrief in soft cotton is the best undie choice for staying comfortable on a long travel day.

Finish your travel look with AEO’s Canvas Platform Sneakers, and you’re ready for takeoff. Wheels up, girls!

The Wrap Front Knit Jumpsuit has quickly become our favorite. Its supersoft stretch fabric is undeniably cozy and the wrap front detail makes for the perfect peek of your favorite lace Bralette.

What Makes New Darlings #AerieREAL

What makes Christina #AerieREAL:
“As someone who quickly wakes up, checks their phone, hits the shower, and then gets straight to work, I’ve been waking up earlier to give myself an hour of quiet time each morning.  Most mornings I’ve been reaching for soft and cozy knits to lounge around in.  This jumpsuit from Aerie has definitely become a favorite.”

What Makes New Darlings #AerieREAL

“I’ve been loving their soft intimates and all the amazing things they’ve been doing with the #AerieREAL campaign. I’ve been admiring the direction the company has been going in with their unretouched ads, positive message on embracing all body types, and feeling comfortable in your own skin.  It also doesn’t hurt that they have a ton of comfy basics for easy going days.”

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

We asked one of our favorite bloggers, Tiana from Thetique, what makes her #AerieREAL. Tiana gets REAL by encouraging everyone to embrace their curves and love the imperfections that make us unique.

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

 What makes Tiana #AerieREAL:
“I love brands that continuously remain authentic and encourage us all to be proud of the wonderful things we have to offer. The #AerieREAL Campaign is reminding women across the world to love their freckles, embrace their curves, and show off all of the beautiful characteristics that make us complexly and undeniably ourselves. Because let’s face it: we’ve all been “that girl” secretly wishing we had “her legs” or “her hair.” But I can guarantee that while you’re swooning over someone else’s beauty, another person is admiring yours all the same.”

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

“The truth of the matter is that we all have these insanely unique qualities about ourselves, and they’re what make us the amazing humans we are. So we need to stop looking to others and start looking at ourselves – I think we’d be surprised at how much beauty we find there.”

Follow Her Friday: Rosie Clayton

This week we’re inspired by our friend and photographer Rosie Clayton! Her creativity and passion for bringing ordinary objects to life with bold, bright colors continues to amaze us. Read on to learn more about this social media maven!

Follow Her Friday: Rosie Clayton Tell us about yourself! What got you interested in photography?
“Hi everyone! I’m Rosie Clayton (@rclayton) and I’ve taken some photos that you might have seen on the @Aerie Instagram feed this Summer. I grew up and currently live in Chicago and am opening an upscale, craft cocktail bar with my husband next year. I studied Textiles and Apparel Management at Cornell University and went on to work at some brand name retailers, as well as my own women’s clothing boutique, Roslyn, of eight years before deciding to pursue a career in hospitality. As we’re working on our bar concept and location, I have been able to dedicate some time to a passion of mine, photography. Being able to curate my Instagram feed has given me a wonderful creative outlet that has led to some incredible collaborations!

I first got interested in photography after taking an introductory course on film photography and dark room techniques in high school. My passion was to travel the world and capture moments on camera. I love that photography helps me look at the world in a different way, and how seemingly ordinary places and objects can be interpreted so beautifully in a photograph. Anyone at any age can start taking photos and it’s such a personal experience, a chance to tell a story without uttering a single word. My Instagram gallery features bright, bold photography with an emphasis on color. I feature design, fashion, and travel photos, as well as a lot of creative flatlays in my feed. Social media is such a wonderful outlet to be able to share visual experiences and I’ve been fortunate to meet some incredible people in the creative community.”

We love your bright, fun aesthetic. Where do you draw inspiration from?
“I love how a pop of color can lighten your mood and brighten your day! Overall, I’m inspired by clean spaces, bold graphics, and interesting color combinations. I love finding and shooting abstract and colorful street murals in various cities, especially Chicago! I’ve included some fun, fashion photos to my feed to incorporate my love of retail and showcase my personal style. A lot of my flatlays feature candy and Summer themed objects like flamingos and watermelons.”

Follow Her Friday: Rosie ClaytonDo you have any tips you can share on how to take an amazing Instagram photo?
“I honestly don’t think there is such a thing as the perfect Instagram photo. Being true to yourself and what makes you happy is the best way to really convey a specific mood or thought.  Sure, there are editing apps that are fun to use, but post what makes you happy and hopefully, it will resonate with others! The most important thing is to have fun and never let the photos become a chore, that’s when you can start feeling uninspired to post. In terms of specific apps, I like using VscoCam, Afterlight, and sometimes Snapseed but there are a ton of great apps out there. I would say to take a moment to review and edit your photo rather than hastily posting- each post is like a visual signature and a way people can get a glimpse into your personality through your Instagram feed. Make sure lines are straight and you’re happy with the colors and brightness of your photo before posting.  Consistency is also really important to your overall feed- try to use the same filter or editing tools so there’s a common thread to tie all your photos together.”
Follow Her Friday: Rosie ClaytonWe know you love to travel! Do you have a favorite destination?
“I am obsessed with travel! There are too many wonderful places in the world to pick just one favorite destination but some of my favorite countries that I’ve been to are: Italy, Argentina, Brazil, Thailand (my family is originally from there), Scotland (my husband’s family is there), Morocco, and the Maldives. In the U.S., I love New Orleans, San Francisco, Palm Springs (color heaven!), New York City, and of course, my hometown, Chicago!”

Follow Her Friday: Rosie Clayton

Do you have a favorite Aerie product?
“Ooh this is a tough question! I love the fit and feel of the Sunnie Pushup Bra as well as all the Aerie swimwear. Everything seems to always hit in the right spot, sizes are consistent and true, and the fabrications are so comfortable!  I also live in the Aerie Skinny Skinny Jogger pants– -the fabric is the perfect thickness and they’re super soft. I wear them to sleep, around the house, and throw on filp flops, army boots, or converse to walk the dogs.”

Follow Her Friday: Rosie Clayton

What does being #AerieREAL mean to you?
“To me, being #AerieREAL is being true to yourself and “owning it!” It’s about having confidence, being comfortable in your own skin, and creating your own definition of happiness and beauty. Being #AerieREAL is a state of mind that you exude physically.”

 Thank you, Rosie! Be sure to check out her photography and follow her on Instagram!

xoxo,

Aerie
