How To Style The Cable Knit Beanie and Heritage Plaid Blanket Scarf With Lauren LeBouef

Winter is coming and that mean’s it’s time to bundle up for those colder temps! Whether you’re into hats, scarves, or parkas or ponchos, we’ve got cold weather accessories to keep you stylish all season long. Our friend Lauren is helping us get ready for winter in our Cable Knit Beanie and Heritage Plaid Blanket Scarf. Get to know Lauren and the inspiration behind her look below.


Meet Lauren: Lauren is a San Diego based model. Lauren has a strong passion for living a healthy life style, makeup, and fashion. She is inspired when people achieve their goals and when others are able to pursue what they love! Her wish is to bring positivity to people lives through her social media outlets such as her Instagram. She hopes to show others how they too, can use the gifts they were given to inspire those around them.


What Inspired Lauren’s Look: For me, living in Southern California the winters can be pretty inconsistent when it comes to being chilly or little on the warmer side throughout the days and months. This is exactly why scarves and beanies are a perfect items to have in your closet, no matter where you live! Whether you live where its already snowing or live somewhere like me where it’s chilly in the mornings but can possibly warm up throughout the day, its nice to have something to easily take of and put back on. I love this blanket scarf from american eagle, not only because of its extreme softness but also the fact that I can wrap it around my neck in so many different ways! Its also great to bundle up in it throughout the day! If it seem to get a little warmer toward I can easily take it off or even style it in a different way! Blanket scars like this one can be styled in many ways! Both of these items can be warn with any kind of top, I prefer some kind of fall/winter colored long sleeve shirt, or you can also of course wear a cute coat or jacket. I the paired it with my favorite black jeans and some lace up combat boots. If you’re wanting an even more “girly” style you can throw on a pair of cute tights and a circle skirt for a more flirty vibe!

REAL Talk with Gal Meets Glam

What happened when Gal Meets Glam‘s Julia Engel took our PJ’s on a getaway? The cutest, coziest weekend of the year! Even though she felt a little under the weather, Julia rocked her faves from our Holiday collection all weekend long.

REAL Talk with Gal Meets Glam

“My ideal weekend during the holidays is spending time somewhere cold, bundled up by a fire and eating lots of sweets. That’s exactly what we did last weekend with my family in Tahoe. It was probably the best situation for me to come down with a cold since I had my mom there to take care of me (aren’t moms just the best- endless back tickles & tea) and a cozy spot on the couch all weekend. I stayed in my pjs 80% of our time there and I’m not complaining about that one bit.”

REAL Talk with Gal Meets Glam

“I’m excited to be partnering with Aerie this holiday season to show a few of my favorite cozy holiday looks, plus I’m proud to support #AerieReal, an anti-photoshopping movement Aerie started last year. It’s so important to love our bodies just the way they are. We all have what we consider imperfections, but it’s these areas that make us uniquely special. And trying to cover them up or doctor them into something ideal simply makes them seem unreal and unattainable. Embracing what we naturally have exudes confidence, which is real beauty in and of itself.”REAL Talk with Gal Meets Glam

“In the late afternoon, I slipped into this flannel nightie and added this fun fluffy vest for a relaxing afternoon watching all my favorite chick flicks on Netflix (Bridget Jones, My Best Friends Wedding, It’s Complicated…) and cuddled up on the couch with my sisters. A lovely combination of warm slippers, hot tea and a soft scarf completed the evening until we passed out from eating licorice and chocolate almonds.”REAL Talk with Gal Meets Glam

“Wearing what feels good on is important to me, especially when it comes to my pajamas. If you know me, then you absolutely know I love my pj sets! As the weather gets colder, I crave warm flannels and comfy socks to lounge around the house in. I added the striped joggers and this plaid sweatshirt from Aerie to my mix along with this sweater pom beanie, these plaid socks and this cable knit sweater to keep cozy.”

How to Style the Utility Pant

If you’ve ever shied away from the Utility Pant, read on to learn how to learn how Stephanie from Honey & Silk  styles this supersoft bottom for the perfect Fall #OOTD!

How to Style the Utility Pant

“I’m a summer girl at heart because I live and breathe the ambience of vivid palm leaves, the effortless getup of silky dress slips, and the indulgent, warm nights on the patio. But the romance in nature’s golden palette as the season turns to fall and winter easily contends summer for the most breathtaking backdrop. Wintry sunshine is just as beautiful as in the months’ preceding and it just takes an extra layer or two to enjoy the sun as usual.”

How to Style the Utility Pant

” Since I work from home, loungewear is my daily ensemble (and sometimes only ensemble) and I love Aerie for their cute loungewear that is always super comfortable and of amazing quality.  On any given day, you can find me working away at the computer while wearing the Lace Longline Bralette with soft pants like the Utility Pant made of silky tencel. When it comes to golden hour just before sunset, I take a break to go outside and recharge. I throw on my cozy yellow Whipstitch Cardi and I grab my tumbler full of hot tea to enjoy the crisp breeze among the red and yellow leaves while I regain some mental clarity.”

How to Style the Utility Pant

“That’s a part of the real me, as I’m inspired to tell by Aerie’s beautiful #AerieREAL campaign, which supports unretouched models in their ads and website. Their body-positive message in turn motivates us to love and embrace our real selves inside and out and personally, I feel comfortable in sharing my real self with you always. True beauty lies in celebrating how perfect our imperfections are, together.”
