What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL
“I spent this early morning retreating and taking some time to ‘be’– my idea of where beauty begins. As important as it is to build up wardrobes for going out, I’ve been embracing the personal ones behind closed doors. I grabbed some essentials from Aerie – the lace wraparound braletteskinny jogger, and duster cardi. The softness and comfort of each piece left me never wanting to take them off. Especially the duster– it’s a piece that I like to leave at the edge of my bed to throw on whenever I need.”

What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL

“The idea of beauty and Aerie’s vision behind their AerieREAL campaign is something that gets me so passionate and excited. From featuring unretouched ads, using real models of different sizes, they’ve effortlessly set the stage for ‘real’ to be displayed worldwide. The positive message that it’s not constrained to one body type or personality even, but it’s being brought back to its bare, foundational state. This for me is the core of my blog so it’s amazing to be able to partner with their message reaching so many young women.” What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL

“To me, true beauty is learning how to rest– rest in life and rest within yourself. Learning how to be. Everything in us flourishes when we see what’s already within and give it a place to speak out.”What Makes Mel Denisse #AerieREAL

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

We asked one of our favorite bloggers, Tiana from Thetique, what makes her #AerieREAL. Tiana gets REAL by encouraging everyone to embrace their curves and love the imperfections that make us unique.

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

 What makes Tiana #AerieREAL:
“I love brands that continuously remain authentic and encourage us all to be proud of the wonderful things we have to offer. The #AerieREAL Campaign is reminding women across the world to love their freckles, embrace their curves, and show off all of the beautiful characteristics that make us complexly and undeniably ourselves. Because let’s face it: we’ve all been “that girl” secretly wishing we had “her legs” or “her hair.” But I can guarantee that while you’re swooning over someone else’s beauty, another person is admiring yours all the same.”

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

“The truth of the matter is that we all have these insanely unique qualities about ourselves, and they’re what make us the amazing humans we are. So we need to stop looking to others and start looking at ourselves – I think we’d be surprised at how much beauty we find there.”

What Inspired Claudia’s Look:
Distressed denim is a wardrobe staple this fall, making it easy to look effortlessly cool as you transition into the new season.
