American Eagle Try Ons

September 14, 2018

I ran into American Eagle to make a return, and they had so many cute things out on display…so I took a few minutes and tried on several goodies that caught my eye.  The thing I love about this brand is the textures!  They have some of the softest things I have ever put on my body!

Ok, lets start with this adorable button up shirt, that true to AE fashion, was incredibly soft.  It felt like I was wearing one of my favorite shirts that I have had for years and had been through hundreds of washes.  I am wearing a small and it fit great, so I’d say if you are between sizes, go down.  You could totally wear this shirt open with a cute cami or striped tee underneath!  It would double as a lightweight military jacket!  Wear it tucked in, tied at the waist, tied around your waist, open, or buttoned up!  This is a really versatile piece.  Also comes in blush pink and vintage burgundy color.

The jeans were also impressive.  Last year, I was not impressed with their jean selection.  I usually love AE denim, but last year was a total miss in my book.  However, I think they have redeemed themselves!  I grabbed a couple pair to try on, and I was very happy with both of them!  
These I have on above fit true to size, were stretchy, mid-rise, not distressed, and hit me at the ankle (I am wearing the short and I am 5’6″).  

This space dyed sweatshirt just looked so comfy, and it definitely was!  The name of this shirt online is Ahhmazingly Soft Sweatshirt…if that tells you anything!  Comes in several color options including camo.  I am wearing a small and it fit perfectly.  Go up a size if you want more of an oversized fit.

Y’all already know I am  a huge fan of these t-shirts, but when I saw the camo one, I just had to try it on!  So cute, and of course, so soft!  They run large, so size down.  I am wearing a small.  
The cardigan is also a favorite.  It’s lightweight, but very warm, has a hood, and comes in several color options.  Runs large, I am wearing an XS.

I loved the detail on this lace up sweater!  This rust color just screamed fall to me, but it does come in other colors if this one isn’t your jam.  I’m wearing a small.  I feel like a broken record, but it’s also very soft.  I don’t know what kind of threads AE uses to make their shirts, but it’s something magical, I’ll tell ya!.
These jeans are fun if you are looking for a distressed pair.  Considering the larger holes, I sized up to avoid my fat squishing out of them, and they fit well.  You could definitely get your regular size if you don’t have squishy thighs (wink, wink).  This is the regular length, and they hit me right at the ankle (I’m 5’6″).

A few other items worth mentioning…These Tomgirl shorts I talked about on Instagram and FB are currently $19.99.  I was able to size down in the lighter wash, but I preferred the fit of my regular size in the darker wash because they material was thicker and not as stretchy.  If you aren’t into the longer Bermuda length, just cut them off to your desired length, wash, dry and you’re good to go!  
I also love these short sleeve sweatshirts!  I think they are so fun, and perfect for those cooler summer, and warmer fall days!
They have tons of bralettes to choose from, and they get great reviews!  
Lots of fun stuff available right now!
