There comes a point every year, when we are buried in snow… but I cannot stop dreaming of the beach. So I do the next best thing: stock up on some new styles for spring! Will I ever be too old to shop at American Eagle? I sure hope not. It never fails – I always find a handful of favorite pieces every year! (I know you remember that knot dress I lived in all last summer!!). I am sharing what I snagged from American Eagle in this spring style haul!
I made fun video, and I have links and info below!
Details & Sizing
Ok, so sometimes sizing can run a little off, so I wanted to go into detail about each of the items.
These camel shorts are SO cute on. I grabbed my usual XS, and they fit fine, but a small would give them a more laidback/casual fit! For the tee, I went with a small. I wanted an oversized fit. This tee runs really big – it’s definitely a “relaxed” fit. I could have gone with an XS and still been able to tie the knot in it. If you’re looking for a basic tee you can wear untucked, consider your normal size or even sizing down on this!
These white shorts are the comfiest, softest shorts I have ever owned. They definitely require nude undies, but they aren’t see-through. I ordered an XS, and they fit with room. If in between sizes, I recommend sizing down! They are a little long, but I cuffed them up and love the look. I paired it with the same white tee from above, and am SO into the all white look. Top it off with a nude cardigan or a denim jacket for a statement, or add a pop of color with this fun headband!
These pants are so fun! According to AE sizing, I could wear a 4 or 2, I took a gamble and went with the 4, and they are a bit too big – I am going to exchange them for the 2 because I really like them! Since they’re so high-waisted, I paired them, with a super cute smocked crop top!
I always have a hard time finding good denim shorts. They are either super low rise or your butt cheeks are hanging out. I really like the AE Tomgirl shorts, but while searching for a new pair this year, stumbled upon these Mom Shorts. I. Am. In. Love. The fit is SO perfect. I went with the 4 on these, and the fit is perfect – a little more relaxed, and not thigh-hugging. I am having a moment with mustard this season, and these stripes are so good. This button down is a relaxed fit, so I have plenty of material to knot up in this XS. It’s super lightweight and soft.
This wrap dress is adorable on. It comes in another color, and runs true to size. I am wearing the XS. It is lightweight and flowy – I will be wearing this on repeat all Spring and Summer. How cute would it be paired with a little straw bag like this one?
I mentioned above that I lived in AE’s knot dress last summer. I was so excited to see they had an updated version for this season. I snagged the black version in an XS, and it is SO comfy. For a more fitted look, I could easily wear the XXS, so if you are between sizes, I would suggest sizing down. Last year, I purchased the dress in an XS and XXS and preferred the XXS – bonus: it did NOT ride up throughout the day!!
And here are a few goodies in my cart, just waiting for order number 2!!
