CHILL. PLAY. MOVE. with Om & the City

Our CHILL. PLAY. MOVE. Collection works for every body and any activity. Read on to learn how Jules from Om & the City values the importance of feeling confident in what she wears.

“There’s nothing better than waking up on a day with no formal plans or obligations. Just an open day to do whatever makes my heart happy. No matter how I end up spending my time, I make sure to wear clothing that makes me feel good on the inside and out. This, my friends, is why I love wearing Aerie so much – I feel comfortable, beautiful, and dare I say unstoppable? From practicing yoga to eating popcorn on my couch, here’s a glimpse of how I chill, play, and move as an #AerieREAL girl.”

CHILL

“I’m one of those people who goes to bed verrrry excited to wake up and make coffee in the morning. It’s therapeutic, and I enjoy the process from grinding the beans to brewing it in my French press. It makes me feel calm as a clam 🌊 – which is how I feel when watering my plant babies. These tiny and seemingly mundane moments can actually be some of the most beautiful little details that make your mood 💯!”

“Consider this a version of mind-play – It’s my job to write, so grabbing my journal and writing down my dreams and ideas is exciting to me. Whether it’s writing song lyrics, full blog posts, or even simple lists, I always appreciate the little dreamstorms. You never know if an idea you have on a rainy Sunday afternoon will turn into something real and substantial someday. Give your mind a break from the constant noise of social media – put pen to paper and see what happens when your mind is at ease and has time to wander. ☁️”

“You gotta move to groove. Exercise doesn’t have to come from a superficial place. Staying active keeps your mind, body and spirit healthy, and that should always be a priority. I feel super energized after a sweaty yoga sesh or a breezy walk around my neighborhood. Find what it is that excites your spirit – maybe it’s rock climbing, biking, or dancing. You don’t have to be a slave to a gym if that’s not your jam. It’s certainly not mine! #YogiProbs” “Aerie empowers women to be who they are in their realest and rawest forms. I love the fit, feel, and look of Aerie’s clothing, and I feel incredible knowing I’m supporting a brand that supports me right back. Celebrating diversity and being vulnerable is what makes us human and what brings us together. That and high-waisted yoga pants.”

MOVE With Fo Porter

Dressed in our Chill. Play. Move. Collection, #AerieREAL girl Fo Porter shows us how she MOVES in her Aerie. “I tried Pilates for the first time, about 6 years ago, I absolutely loved it! My next door neighbor at the time (who is now my mentor and close friend) was the one who had been training me over the years. Having her kick my butt in the studio and seeing my body transform always kept me coming back!” Read on below for more of Fo’s fitness tips, shop the Chill. Play. Move. Collection, and more!MOVE With Fo Porter

How does your regular workout help you throughout your day-to-day life?

My two ultimate favorite ways to work out is Pilates and hiking, both benefit me in SO any many ways! Pilates is where it’s at, it’s toned my body, core and my posture is incredible. I feel strong from deep within not just on the surface muscles. Hiking not only contributes, cardio wise, but it helps me to think and clears my mind. I can put on a good album and get lost (in the best way possible!) in my atmosphere, not to mention having the visuals of a hike, “one with nature”, type of thing, also helps to take my mind if the workout part!MOVE. With Fo Porter

What makes Pilates stand out from any other workout you’ve tried?

What makes Pilates stand out from most work outs I’ve ever done is the strength I’ve gained from deep within my core. I’m the strongest I’ve ever been because of Joseph Pilates method and style. It’s beautiful how much you can do with your body and how much your body can transform from an hour long work out made up of  20/30 moves, 8-12 times. I walk out of the studio feeling more poised and taller then when I came in.. I’m obsessed!MOVE. With Fo Porter

How do you stay motivated on days you would rather be doing something else?

Ohhhh boy! To be perfectly honest, just getting out of the house is first and foremost. Trust me, there’s days where I’m just so tired that I don’t feel like doing a damn thing! Once I get my butt out of that door I feel so much better, almost instantly. The power of nature and being outside consumes me.. When I’m really struggling, there is a BEAUTIFUL hiking trail/ neighborhood by my house that I love to wonder. If I’m feeling totally out of wack I’ll force myself to hike up, taking it easy…MOVE. With Fo Porter

What is your favorite Aerie product from our Chill. Play. Move. Collection?

Awe man!! You can’t ask me that! Every single piece has a special place for me.. Ask the stylist on set, all you heard out of me, “OMG!! When does that come out?! OHHHHH, I loooove that!! This is soooooooo comfy! I need this in every color, I’m serious!!” There’s no way I can possibly pick just one, I genuinely love it all!MOVE. With Fo Porter

What advice do you have for girls who want to become active but don’t know where to start?

My advice to girls/ women is to take it one day at a time. Simple as that.. Its great to have a goal but don’t beat yourself up trying to get there. Just worry about what you’re going to do with your body today, be in the now. Try something new, don’t be afraid of what your beautiful body is capable of. Don’t be afraid to try a new class, a different hiking path or a whole new work out method. Most of all, start by fuleing your body the proper way, with cutting back on the bad foods whatever it may be (and you know exactly what I’m talking about!). Start replacing them with better choices and options. Even if it’s just changing up to having a yummy salad at lunch instead of that gourmet sandwich you love. Trust me it sticks in a way where if you can change one meal or snack option a day, it becomes easier to diceplne yourself in the long haul. Baby steps and one day at a time.. Remember to always love the skin your in, cause it’s all you got and all you will ever get, make the most you can of it!MOVE. With Fo Porter

That’s why I’m so happy to be blogging about the new, comfy, and versatile clothing from the “CHILL. PLAY. MOVE.” collection! I’m obsessed with how soft the material of the yoga pants are and the tops… but ALSO I really love that I can wear these outfits anywhere and feel confident in them!”
