4) Summer YUM-in’
Summer’s not over yet, and you still need to find ways to stay cool. Try a refreshing treat with this Raspberry Lemonade smoothie: take 1 can of lemonade concentrate, 1 ½ cans of water, 2 cups of frozen raspberries, ¼ cup of sugar and 4 cups of ice. Mix all together in a blender, top it off with some fresh lemon slices and enjoy!

5) ALWAYS #AerieREAL
Our new Assistant Swim Designer, Kathryn, says she’s #AerieREAL  “because I have an athletic build and don’t let myself get sidetracked by what the fashion industry says I should look like. I own my big booty!” As always, we want to hear your stories too! Share what makes you #AerieREAL on Instagram or Twitter.

We’ll see you next week, Aerie girls! Be sure to check back for our next round of REAL Faves. xo

Real friends. Real laughs. Real strong. Real love. Real now. #BackToREAL

You still have a couple months to soak up the summer sun, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get in gear for Back To School! This year, our collection is all about heading back to real life. Whether reality for you is a heavy course load next semester or coming back from vacation and returning to the rise and grind of a 40-hour work week, one thing’s for sure. We’ll get you up and running and back to reality in no time.

Take a behind-the-scenes look below at our Back To School photoshoot featuring so many new faves from the collection!

Follow Her Friday: Ali Mitton

Cue the cold nights, the cozy knits, and snowball fights! This Holiday we partnered with a new photographer, who just so happens to be our first Aerie REAL girl photographer, to help us prepare for one of our favorite gifting seasons. Aerie girls, meet Ali Mitton. This Gold Coast Australian native added just the touch of magic, simplicity, and elegance to make our favorite cozy products come to life. Read on below to learn more about Ali, her favorite parts of the shoot, and her thoughts about 100% not retouching.

Follow Her Friday: Ali Mitton

Aerie: What does #AerieREAL mean to you?

AM: It means honesty and confidence!

Aerie: What’s your favorite Holiday recipe?

AM: Christmas in Australia is summer! So I love barbecue seafood and fresh salads. :)

Aerie: What’s your favorite Holiday tradition?

AM: If I’m in Australia its swimming and eating all day, and running around on the beach. If I’m in America its making cookies with my boyfriend’s family and sitting by the fireplace.

Aerie: Did you have a favorite Aerie item from the Holiday line?

AM: I love all the fabulous Christmas print socks. :)

Follow Her Friday: Ali Mitton

Aerie: Cute! We love those, especially with winter boots! What was your favorite scene to shoot?

AM: All our snow scenes were super fun!

Follow Her Friday: Ali Mitton

Aerie: How do you feel not retouching the girls? 

AM: I love not retouching the girls. They don’t need it. No girls actually do. It’s just an industry expectation, a bad habit I love breaking. These girls look amazing without any retouching.

Follow Her Friday: Ali Mitton

 Aerie: What is your favorite camera to shoot with?

AM: A 5D MK III.

Follow Her Friday: Ali Mitton

Aerie: What do you believe not retouching means to young women?

AM: I think retouching has made us place unrealistic expectations on ourselves. We are all trying to live up to something that is not real. Retouching is standard in my line of work, its sad but true. I’m really excited to work with Aerie who is breaking that rule.

Aerie: How would you describe your personal style?  

AM: Relaxed, comfortable, and minimal. :)
