Shopping the Sites: American Eagle

I've started a new feature called "Shopping the Sites", where I pick out my favorite items from popular retail stores-ones that you can shop online and in person if you have one locally.  A virtual dream shopping spree if you will. 

This week I have decided on American Eagle.  While typically a more teenage-friendly brand, I have on several occasions found some great deals on all-american and boho-esque pieces that can't be beat!  You may have to buy a size or two up, but don't let that stop you from shopping here.  I always pop in when I am at the mall to check out their selection.


You can never have too many striped tees or tanks!  Or the perfect boho blouse to get you through summer.

I love the subtle floral pattern on this versatile tee, and yet another great option in my open weave, beige sweater search!  What a perfect cover-up for those chilly summer evenings by the beach!

I love racerback tanks, and this light and flowy peach version is perfect.  Love the deep V of the pale blue shirt on the right.


AE has the perfect selection of just-distressed-enough denim shorts.  And they actually come in sizes longer then extra-super-duper-short. Hooray!

And if you are on the hunt for a sexy black one-piece-look no further! 


How about the perfect summer scarf for only $14.95?

Or some cute ikat slip on sandals?

American Eagle is a great place to shop for that summer beachy/boho vibe!


  1. i got my shorts from AE and i LOVE them. they have quite a few tanks too...and i love those sandals. xoxo jillian:: enter in TWO GIVEAWAYS over at cornflake dreams

  2. I love that open weave sweater! I always mean to stop in AE but I never do. When I used to nanny the junior high-er ONLY dressed from there - I think I equate it with that! But you are right, they have some super fun pieces.

  3. i will always, always love american eagle. it's definitely a store where you can mix and match their cheaper generic pieces with higher end ones and no one will know the better! great post idea and i'm looking forward to future ones!


  4. I have been wanting some cute denim shorts like that! I second that hooray for longer sizes too!


  5. Can't have enough striped tees or boho blouses! Those are my summer staples!
