Aerie Swim Style

Things might look a little different to you on the blog today - it's an OOTD on a Wednesday! Well, that's because today I've been feature on the Aerie blog on how to style a beach kimono. So awesome right? I'm beyond excited to work with such an amazing and empower brand, especially approaching swim season. As women, it can be tough to put on a bikini, let alone take photos of it for a blog post. Aerie made that easier with today's cute post and made me feel beyond flattered to feature my style on their blog. (insert blushing emoji here) Please check it out and share what you think on their blog!

I took a weekend to go downtown and escaped away to the North Avenue beach around the Lincoln Park area of Chicago. There is nothing more relaxing then sitting by a calm Lake Michigan, grabbing a cute pair of sunnies, packing my straw beach bag with a good book, and of course, mixing up my beach style with an amazing Aerie bikini.

I loved the fun zig zag triangle wrap top and the cute bottoms with cut outs. The best part about a solid color swim suit is I can go back to Aerie and purchase more bright tops or bottoms to mix and match my style (like this cute top or these high waisted bottoms). Sometimes too many options to choose from is a good thing!

This bold beach kimono is the perfect coverup for a day at the beach or for a music filled weekend paired with the festival shortie. In Chicago, we love our music festivals in the park. A cute pair of shorts that can double as a beach and festival essential are in a win in my book - but then again anything from Aerie is always a win :)
