As the last of autumn weather makes its way out of our hemisphere, we’re starting to brace for the cold of the holiday season. We teamed up with UK lifestyle blogger Emily of Style Lobster for a feature we’re calling Bloggers Across the Pond. Emily’s styling a full AEO look perfect for chilly days lounging inside or warming up at a local coffee spot. Keep scrolling to see Emily’s #AEOSTYLE & get to know her a little better!
My name is Emily Valentine and I am a London-based blogger, YouTuber and influencer. I launched my blog just over 2 years ago and have since grown it into a platform covering beauty, fashion and lifestyle. In fact, it took over my life so much I waved goodbye to my career in fashion photography to continue working on my “digital diary” full-time. I dabble in yoga, I‘m the first in line for a new restaurant launch and I’m in constant pursuit of the perfect epidermis. This year has been the year of style for my blog. I grew up in Puerto Rico, which is where I first discovered the AEO brand so its a dream to work with them to create my ultimate autumn chill look.
WHAT INSPIRED EMILY’S LOOK:
Winter comes late in London, so my outfit was inspired by autumn comforts – you know, when the temperature drops a few degrees so you can throw on a down filled jacket and a chunky knit without shivering or sacrificing your style? For me, the ultimate chill look is a pair of jeans and a sweater. Although these are wardrobe basics I choose designs that are trend led. I’m obsessed with these Tomgirl jeans. The bleached out denim and rips tick all the insta-cool boxes for me. I’m also a massive fan of the low-slung hip riders with relaxed girlfriend leg. Nobody wants to lounge around in a pair of tight skinnies. My Ahhh-mazingly Soft Jegging Sweater knit is made of the softest chenille fabric. The design is long on my arms and cropped slightly higher on the hips so as not to drown me in fabric.
I’ve paired my Tomgirl jeans & sweater with the ultimate outdoor jacket. The Quilted Parka doesn’t let in a smidgen of cold, which is great for keeping out wintry winds. It’s feel so snuggly. Footwear comforts are important to me as well, and I fell in love with these faux-sherpa suede black booties. Comfort meets chic!
