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.”

Swim Break with Blogger TobruckAve

Meet Kiara Schwartz, #AerieREAL girl and blogger behind TobruckAve! She just got back from a trip to the Cayman Islands full of sun, #AerieSWIM and #AEOSTYLE. Read on to find out more about her summer must-haves, her getaway bucket list and what makes her #AerieREAL.

What was your favorite part of the Cayman Islands? 

The incredible colors of the Caribbean actually made my entire vacation feel like I was stuck in this beautiful watercolor painting. It begins when you start flying over the islands. Looking down and seeing the perfect ocean blue waters with the white sand and coral reef is when you know you are about to experience something unforgettable. There where so many favorite parts, but as a favorite spot I would have to say Star Fish point. Surrounded by palm trees  and a white sandy beach, it is the perfect spot to disconnect from the real world and really enter into that island state of mind.

You travel all the time. What is your all-time favorite place to visit? 

Well, venturing to the Cayman Islands was my first experience in the Caribbean! Now all I can think of is when can I go back? I LOVE traveling and every destination has so many different special moments and experiences to offer. Continuously at the top of my list is the little town of Sayulita in Mexico. I love the energy there and the culture that it has preserved over the years. Even though tourism has increased a whole lot it still has kept its little surfer town charm, which is so enchanting. But when it comes to a perfect beach vacation, Cayman Islands seems to be the new untouchable! I have never experienced such sparkling beauty when it comes to clear waters and white sand between my toes.

Do you have any summer getaways planned?

Yes! Of course. I have so many on the list! A few destinations on my list include Barbados (like I said I need another dose of the Caribbean ASAP) and Costa Rica. British Columbia actually has so many road trip worthy trips as well. Tofino will be on the list for a Pacific Northwest getaway and maybe even a spontaneous road trip or two! Always trying to get away as much as I can. Travel gives me inspiration and energy and I am always the most excited to share new locations and take my readers to a new and exciting destination.

What makes you #AerieREAL?

OK let’s get real, for all my curly haired friends out there. Curly does not equal perfect beach hair, sadly! I have a hard time accepting my frizz and curls in its natural state. BUT in this video on this vacation there are a few shots where you can see that I had no other option but to embrace the real curly frizzyness that is my natural hair. Sometimes diving into the water and getting my hair wet just has to trump keeping my “effort-full undone waves” that I try and keep especially for photos. I love the #AerieREAL message and would also like to add that I take pride in my body, I always try to eat healthy and work out. My dad always said while we were growing up, your body is your temple. I think that is an important message to keep in mind, never overdo something to the point of being unhealthy. Stick to what makes you feel at your best because that is what your body deserves.
