Now that everyone has been social distancing and isolating indoors for a couple of months—and has basically missed spring's perfect temperatures and vibrant blooms—many have started to wonder: Are we actually going to have a summer after all? Or should we keep our tanks, shorts, and sundresses tucked away and our sweatpants and cozy items at the ready? Are afternoons at the pool or beach completely out of the question? Or should you say "screw it" and snag that swimsuit you've had your eye on anyway?

Well, Jessica Alba recently posted a video with her 11-year-old daughter, Honor, that was not only a total summer vibe but also made a case for pulling the trigger on buying a new bikini during quarantine. The video begins with the mother-daughter duo sporting comfy loungewear while sitting in bed and seemingly daydreaming of summer days spent beneath the sun. Then the pair transition to beach mode—twinning in matching leopard print bikinis and coverups from Aerie, basking in the sunshine on their lawn.

"Backyard beach day w my Honorcita #twinningitup in @aerie Real Good collection swimsuits made from recycled plastic bottles!" the Honest Beauty founder captioned her post.

The swimsuits in question? Alba and her daughter are both wearing the Aerie Leopard High Cut Cheeky Bikini Bottom (Buy It, $30, aerie.com), but Alba paired hers with Aerie's Leopard Longline V Scoop Bikini Top (Buy It, $35, aerie.com), while Honor opted for the Longline Bandeau Bikini style (Buy It, $40, aerie.com). The duo topped off their beachy looks with adorable straw fedoras and coordinating Kimono Cover Ups (Buy It, $25, $35, aerie.com) in black and white leopard print. (Psst, their must-have print comes in a sexy one-piece, too.)

Both of their bikinis are part of Aerie's Real Good collection, a swim line made entirely from recycled nylon fabrics and recycled plastic water bottles—so the swimsuits are not only super cute, but you can feel good about wearing them, too.

The best news? While the mother-daughter duo's swimsuits are already incredibly affordable, Aerie is having a massive sale on swim right now with an amazing BOGO deal on swimwear just in time for Memorial Day Weekend. You can pick out one bikini top or bottom and get another for free, meaning you can steal Alba's look and snap up her matching top and bottoms for just $35 (originally $65 for both items). Once you add the pieces to your cart, the deal will automatically apply at checkout. Piece of cake.

Alba and her mini-me prove that just because you're on lockdown, that doesn't mean you can't create your own beachy escape—whether it's on your rooftop, balcony, porch, backyard, or even inside your home (hey, you can totally sprinkle some salt flakes in your bathtub for an ocean-like oasis). And if you're on the hunt for a new affordable, celeb-approved swimsuit to add to your lineup, look no further than Alba's leopard print quarantine bikini.
