How to Style a Jumpsuit

One & only! Caitlyn from How Do You Wear That goes black to the white in our Print Jumpsuit and matching Half United Wrap Bracelet. How to Style a Jumpsuit“It officially feels like summer! Absolutely love it. Summer style means super light fabrics that you can throw on right out of the shower, ocean or pool and look put together with little-to-no maintenance, accessories and layers. Which is kind of funny because I am usually all about the layering. This easiest way to achieve this super casual & low maintenance look is with jumpsuits, rompers & dresses in light breezy fabrics like gauze, chiffon, cotton.  Ah, I could honestly eat, sleep, work, beach it and everything in between in this jumpsuit I am currently wearing. SO comfy + the print is fun, but not too overwhelming. & the best part – it is so light!”

How to Style a Jumpsuit“In this look, I was coming from a long weekend down at the beach and just finished up my jammed packed work day so I wanted to throw on something comfy I could relax in for dinner. I paired it with my reversible American Eagle tote bag (literally been living out of this! Perfect color combo of black or tan!) and a delicate necklace (that can ALSO be worn as a bracelet. Oh, also –  if you purchase one it feeds 7 meals to children in need. You really cannot beat that…) So awesome. Aerie + American Eagle are so practical and carry relatable (and wearable!) pieces for everyone. I  l o v e  it!

How to Style an Off-The-Shoulder Top

Off-The-Shoulder Tops are one of our favorite trends this summer! Mollie from A Stylish Side Project paired our Off-the-Shoulder Crop Tee with a matching Soft Short for a monochromatic look that can take her from day to night seamlessly.

How to Style a Off-The-Shoulder Crop Tee“Now that summer is officially here, you can find me down the Jersey Shore on any given weekend (and no, it’s nothing like the show!!). Since lugging a huge bag to Penn Station every Friday just doesn’t work for me, it’s important to find pieces that can take me from day to night seamlessly. I’m loving this Aerie two piece set because it does just that! The gauzy material is lightweight and breezy, making it the perfect beach coverup. The trendy off the shoulder style and fun print make it ideal for meeting up with friends post-beach as well. Throw on your favorite wedges, add lipstick, and you’re ready to go!”

Moxie a Fashion Blog Loves the Swim She's In!

“When I was asked to partner with Aerie (American Eagle) for their Real Campaign, I was SO excited. Not just about the product I would be featuring but about the cause. I am so so so passionate about girls, young and old loving their bodies. They challenged people to post unretouched photos of them in a swimsuit to show what girls’ bodies everywhere can look like. It’s so easy to get caught up looking at magazines and wishing we had something we don’t, whether it be the clothes we’re looking at or the body of the model wearing them. I kind of love how social media blogging has put advertising into the hands of everyday girls to try to eliminate the gap that’s sometimes felt when someone looks at a model in a magazine. Learning to love your body is one of the most freeing things ever. And so my hope is that every girl everywhere can learn to do the same.”

“It took me so long to feel comfortable in swimwear. I used to avoid pool parties, and beach vacations with friends. I am so glad I am over that phase in my life! Now it’s all about the swimwear, I go for pieces that make me feel good and a little bit sexy. This suit from aerie is perfectly my style, and fits like a dream!”Aerie_7

AEO Laguna Beach Travel Guide

Laguna Beach is absolutely one of my favorite places in Southern California. From its beautiful crystal clear beaches to its abundant art and music scene, it is definitely a locale to put on your travel list. Lauren, MK and I went on a day trip to explore the town, its beautiful scenery and all the culture it has to offer.

AEO Laguna Beach Travel Guide

We started with a short hike to Table Rock, a beach with a beautiful little cove. The weather was amazing and we explored the area and had some fun before we headed to The Montage Resort. Just below the resort was another beach cove and we took the opportunity to snap some photos before we grabbed lunch at La Sirena.

Next up was a fun little flower shop named Browne’s Flowers. One of the best things about California is the abundance of fresh flowers and flower shops. After snagging a few bouquets we headed down the road to Main Beach. With amazing views including a Gazebo perched on top of one of the many sea cliffs it’s no wonder this is one of the most popular beaches in Laguna.

We rinsed the sand off our feet and were off to our third beach of the day, Crescent Bay. This is one of my favorite areas in Laguna. Perched up on the cliffs we took in the majestic views of turquoise colored water, white beach sand, and countless tall palm trees making it one of the most amazing photo spots.

We drove along the coastline to Newport Coast for ice cream at B.Candy. With its bright and vibrant exterior you can’t miss it! With ice cream cones in hand, we continued along the coast and had to stop when we saw a gorgeous bright orange old school VW bus. We chatted up the owner as he talked about the hard work he had put into restoring it. Talk about the ultimate road trip vehicle!

Our day was coming to a close but we couldn’t leave Laguna without having dinner at Brussels Bistro.


Laguna Beach may seem like just another beach town but it is one of my favorite places to visit. Have you ever been to Laguna? If so, tell me some of your favorite spots in the comments! Or, share your favorite beach destination for a perfect getaway adventure below!

Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

Crochet all day every day! Whether its crochet Tops, Bottoms or Swim, we’ve got you covered. 

Beach babe Elana Loo talks about one of her favorite trends and what makes her #AerieREAL below! Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

“Since being a young girl, I don’t really remember being obsessed with new trends or the latest fads – but instead, I always wanted to acquire a sense of style that was timeless, classic + effortless (if that’s attainable & you’ve figured it out – be sure to let me in on your secret). Despite this, each year we’re told what the latest, greatest styles are – sure, I love the new cuts, fabrics, etc. but I don’t completely change my style to fit what’s trending, instead I find myself turning back to what makes me feel confident and something that flatters my figure.”

Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

This Aerie Suit does just that! (Practically every single one of their suits does *major heart eyes*) The crochet detailing is a nod to the 70’s which is prevalent this year, but the color palette is something that’s very true to my aesthetic and pairing the bikini with a classic white button down and a relaxed, floppy hat makes this look lean more towards classic. I tend to fill my suitcase with easy, go-to outfits like this! Perfect for beach lounging if you ask me. Of course, to and from the beach, I love to rock a pair of jean shorts like these over the suit!”

“Now, why I am overjoyed to be putting pen to paper (or in this case, fingers to keyboard) in collaboration with Aerie + American Eagle is that they are the brands that have carried me along my style journey since adolescence. I always have found pieces that express my style and now, I am 100% behind them because of the values that come along with #AerieREAL. Embracing yourself as a natural woman, no matter what size, is vital to our happiness, success and confidence as women.”

Trend Alert! Crochet Swim

“See, the thing is, just as you probably have – I’ve struggled with whole-heartedly accepting my body and my flaws. I’m not a glamorous gal; I proudly work from home (mostly in my bikini), don’t wash or style my hair on the daily and yes, I have cellulite. Everyday, I see perfectly made up beauties with perfect curls, lipstick on and impeccable outfits – and I can easily sink into the feeling that my reality is lack-luster, that I’m not as beautiful. But here’s the real reality, it is my life and it is beautiful. It’s worth living, exploring and enjoying. This is true for all of our lives. My every day doesn’t look perfect, but I work hard to chase my goals and live an intentional life. I am proud of my curvy, bold self – flaws, scars, outspoken personality and all. These things don’t define who I am, but instead what I am putting out into the world does. So today, I proudly partner with Aerie to share my un-retouched photos – my unedited, real self; the same person you’ll see working from a coffee shop, grabbing groceries or hangin’ at the beach any given Sunday. My soul is beautiful, my body is beautiful – I am beautiful. And so are you. So rock that bikini, be proud of your scars, your curves + your uniqueness! Be you – authentically and unapologetically.”
