What Makes New Darlings #AerieREAL

The Wrap Front Knit Jumpsuit has quickly become our favorite. Its supersoft stretch fabric is undeniably cozy and the wrap front detail makes for the perfect peek of your favorite lace Bralette.

Blogger Christina from New Darlings talks about her morning routine and all things #AerieREAL.

What Makes New Darlings #AerieREAL

What makes Christina #AerieREAL:
“As someone who quickly wakes up, checks their phone, hits the shower, and then gets straight to work, I’ve been waking up earlier to give myself an hour of quiet time each morning.  Most mornings I’ve been reaching for soft and cozy knits to lounge around in.  This jumpsuit from Aerie has definitely become a favorite.”

What Makes New Darlings #AerieREAL

“I’ve been loving their soft intimates and all the amazing things they’ve been doing with the #AerieREAL campaign. I’ve been admiring the direction the company has been going in with their unretouched ads, positive message on embracing all body types, and feeling comfortable in your own skin.  It also doesn’t hurt that they have a ton of comfy basics for easy going days.”

How To Make Patchwork Pocket Denim With I SPY DIY

Jenni R. from I SPY DIY here. For my next installment, I took a pair of classic denim and added a pop of color to create patchwork pocket shorts. You can choose any fabric that suits your #AEOSTYLE to create a pair that’s unique to you! Check out my easy step-by-step guide below.

DIY Patchwork Denim Shorts

What you need:
AEO Denim X Kick Boot Jean

Fabric
Scissors
Marker
Hem tape
Fabric Glue

DIY Patchwork Denim Shorts

What you do:
Step 1:
Turn your AEO Denim X Kick Boot Jean into shorts by cutting a straight line across both legs.

DIY Patchwork Denim Shorts

Step 2: Choose a piece of fabric that is large enough to cover the back pockets of the jeans. Lay the fabric flat on the jeans and trace the shape of the pockets onto the fabric.

Step 3: Create another outline of the pocket that is 1/2” wider than the initial one on all sides. Cut around this outer line.

DIY Patchwork Denim Shorts Step 4: Apply hem tape to the inside of your guidelines and fold the excess 1/2” of fabric over the tape. Press down to secure. Do this around the entire perimeter of your fabric until you create something that resembles the shape of your pocket.

Step 5: Adhere the fabric to the pocket using using fabric glue and let dry. Be careful not to glue the opening of the pocket shut.

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.”
