27-year-old retired Olympian Aly Raisman found a new life purpose after quitting gymnastics. The former athlete turned to an alternate form of exercise that includes mindfulness to keep her body and mind fit, and it's working so well. She shared with her two million-plus Instagram followers that she enjoys communing with nature, and feels her best when she's out around in the tropics. That explains the glow she exuded during her Aerie Sportswear sponsored girls trip in Miami last weekend.
Olympian Aly Raisman Bares Skin In Swimsuit On Girls Trip
Aly Shows Off Her Hair
Aly shared a close-up of her face and upper body, teasing her full look for her fans. The 27-year-old athlete wore a black mono-sleeve one-piece with a huge cut out on the midriff, making the monokini look like a bikini. Her long brown hair with light brown highlights on the tip fall to her sides in wide waves, and she twirls one end to reveal the cute tiny gold earring on her left ear.
The Happy Spot
Eventually, Aly shares a full view of her outfit as she snaps alongside friends at the beach in what Aerie calls "The Happy Spot." She wraps her waist with a long orange and white tie-dye patterned sarong revealing her nude wedge slippers while beaming into the camera.
The girls spend the day playing childhood games and having fun, from swinging on swings (pun intended) to face painting and playing catch. It was kiddies wonderland in The Happy Spot.
Some of the other guests at the Aerie event included singer-songwriter Kelsea Ballerini, actresses Alisha Boe from the series 13 Reasons Why and Carlacia Grant from Outer banks, Miami blogger Ria Michelle, and many more youth stars. Kelsea performed some of her hit songs for the ladies, and Aerie wrote,
"Aerie fam, you made The Happy Spot in Miami one of the best days EVER. And the happy doesn't stop there!"
Ria concurred with her lengthy caption saying,
"There was so much to do and hard to fit it all in this video. Had the best time meeting new friends and doing all the fun activities they set up. I even got to meet an actress from one of my guilty pleasure tv shows haha. So great to be fully comfortable in your skin at an event and I love Aerie for creating that vibe always."
Good Vibes All Year Round
Aerie doubled down on its submission, saying the event was good vibes, and Aly couldn't agree more. The retired gymnast wrote,
"Had so much fun in Miami yesterday with my @aerie fam at The Happy Spot! Thanks to everyone who came 🤍"
