American Eagle Try On Haul June 202

Hey guys! So I recently placed another order at American Eagle. They should honesltly sponsor me at this point haha. To be fair, since I’ve purchased from them so much it’s the only store I feel comfortable buying online. I’ve figured out what size I am, so I have a pretty good success rate. This time around I purchased more summer clothes. I will be posting a try on haul on my Insta and a styling video on my Tik Tok so make sure to check those out!

The first item I picked up is a pair of the AE Stretch Denim Mom Shorts. I really like this shorts. Most of my shorts are tight and short, and these are the opposite. They are a little longer and don’t fit as snug around the thighs. They are a little tight around my waist because I don’t have a small waist to hip ratio. But I believe that it’ll stretch out and be fine. I love these shorts and will be picking up another pair.

The other pair of shorts I got are the Aerie Move Lasercut High Wasited Bike Shorts. I originally wanted to get a black pair but I am happy I got these! The blue colour is super fun, but it’s not so bright that it’s obnoxious. They are stretchy enough that they are good for lounging, but supportive enough to exercise in. They also have POCKETS. I love this!

The first of three shirts is the AE V-Neck Baby T-Shirt. I don’t know why they call it a v-neck because it’s actually round. This shirt reminds me of something I would wear as a little kid. I am in love with the cut and fit of this shirt. It fits me perfectly – not too tight, not too lose. And it’s a little longer than an average crop top so I don’t feel like my belly is over exposed. A super fun summer top.

The second top is the Tailgate Women’s Chevy Corvette Boxy T-Shirt. I like this shirt because it’s multi-functional. I can wear it over top of sweat shorts or bike shorts for a comfy lounge look. Or I can tuck it into jean shirts for a casual but cute summer outfit. It’s the perfect size for a baggy shirt because it’s not too long where I have so much excess fabric but it’s also not a crop top. I dig it.

The final top I ordered is the Aerie Gamechanger Henley Tank. It’s a pretty basic tank, but I think the Olive shade spices it up. Because it’s long it’s nice over top of leggings, but it’s also nice tucked into pants. I think this will be nice with some of the culottes that I own. The material is super soft as well.

The final item is the only one that didn’t fit me well. I ordered the Aerie Easy Knit Midi Dress. I often run into issues with dresses because I am a different size on top than my bottoms. So while it fits me fine on the bottom, it’s loose and baggy on top. It’s also really long on me which is surprising. On the model it looks like it goes to her knees, but on me it’s about mid calf. I will be returning this dress.

And that is my American Eagle haul! Let me know what are some of your favourite places to shop online in the comments.

American Eagle Try On Haul

Hey guys! Today I am doing a try-on haul of all the pieces that I got from American Eagle. I have photos from their site and photos (well screenshots of a video) on myself. I am posting a video on my IGTV showing off the pieces so I recommend checking that out as well.

I placed this order about three weeks ago and it took a while for the pieces to come in. When I can’t link the exact item I try to link similar pieces. Also just to let you know I purchased these items when they were 50% off, so what I paid might be different from what it’s priced now.

First is the AE Plush Long Sleeve Peplum T-Shirt. I got it in a lavender shade but they have a nice cream still in stock. It’s soft and comfy to wear at home but still nice to wear outside the house. I would wear this top with leggings. I like how the back to long enough to cover my butt because I don’t always want to show my butt off haha. I also like how the peplum adds some shape but isn’t too tight so it isn’t uncomfortable.

The next shirt is the AE Cinched Waist T-Shirt. I have it in a beautiful sage green, but online they have a white and tie-dye still. The shirt is very soft and the cinch has some shape and definition. The cinch is also adjustable. While it’s nice with sweatpants, I think this would also be cute with ripped jeans and a jean jacket.

The other t-shirt I got was the AE Fleece Boxy Crew Neck Sweatshirt. This is basically a sweatshirt but with short sleeves. It’s perfect for a Canadian spring where it’s too warm for a thick sweater but not yet warm enough for a t-shirt. I also know tie-dye is really big right now, but this one isn’t too loud.

The first pair of pants isn’t available anymore. They are called the AE Super High-Waisted Jogger Pants in the shade olive. These ones are a similar shade and these ones are a similar shape. What I like about these pants is that they are something different than wearing jeans or leggings. Mine fit me perfectly where it’s not super tight in the waist but still gives me definition. It also makes my butt look good hehe. Excited to wear these!

The second pair of pants are the AE High-Waisted Paperbag Pant. I love these. The paperbag waist just hugs my curves. The fact that they’re black means I can wear them with almost anything. I could dress them up with heels or dress them down with my Birkenstocks. They are made from cotton so they feel great. I think I’ll get a lot of wear out of these pants.

The only item that didn’t fit quite right was the AE Soft Plush Long Sleeve T-Shirt. On the photo it’s completely baggy, but for me it lays oddly over my chest. It’s not bad enough for me to return it, but I wouldn’t wear this while going out. It’s fine for just lounging around the house. I love the colour and that’s mainly why I am keeping it. I think the creamy/oatmeal colour just suits my hair and skin tone so well. So while I don’t necessarily recommend it, I will still wear it.

The final item is the AEO Super High-Waisted Soft Plush Leggings. These are not exactly the most figure-flattering pair of sweats, but they are super comfy. They are basically tighter sweatpants, but they are not skin tight so they are still comfy. The material is super soft as well. The light colour and material highlights my belly but I just wear a long shirt or sweater and it’s out of sight! Definitely great lounge pants for all this time we are spending inside.

And that is my AE haul! A nice combination of lounge-wear and pieces that I will wear when quarantine is over. Let me know if you guys liked this type of haul in the comments below.

HUGE Spring/Summer Try On Haul ~ Forever 21, American Eagle, Winners and more!

Hey guys! This weekend I did a bunch of shopping and got lots of cute stuff for spring and summer. I wanted to make this a try on haul so I convinced (or bugged really) my brother into taking photos for me! So shout out to my brother 🙂

Forever 21

I got a lot of stuff from Forever 21. I actually went twice because I decided to return something and bought more stuff in the process haha!

Photo 2018-05-07, 6 09 07 PM

First I got this Plus Size Floral Button-Front Dress. I actually didn’t know this dress was plus sized until I got in the dressing room because it was in the wrong section. The dress is a little big on me, but I often have the problem of dresses being too short on me so getting the larger size made it longer. I love dark florals and this dress is no exception. I also love the silhoutette and the button details. This is a great easy-breasy summer dress.Photo 2018-05-07, 5 56 25 PMI really wanted to get something gingham, and I really like this dress (I couldn’t find the link but there are many similar dresses at Forever 21). I’m not sure if I love the off the shoulder sleeves, but I can easily tuck them in or cut them off to make it a strapless dress. This is such a fun and simple print, and an easy-to-wear silhouette. I can already see myself rocking this dress with a bold lip this summer!

Next I got the first of three pairs of shorts. A lot of my shorts are too small for me so I had to get new ones (clearly I ate too much ice cream at school this year haha!). I got these black high waisted ones (a similar pair). I personally like Forever 21 denim. I know not everyone does, but I like that all their stuff has a good stretch to them. I like these because they are a little longer compared to some other pairs that I tried on, but I can easily roll them up if I want. Can’t go wrong with a simple pair of black shorts.Photo 2018-05-07, 6 07 50 PMThis Striped Ribbed Knit Tank comes in a few different colours but I got it in navy/cream. I like this top because it comfy but looks nice. I really like these types of tank to just wear to and from work. It’s nothing fancy but still looks good. Even though it is knit it is not a heavy top. I know I will wear this top a lot. Photo 2018-05-08, 6 13 16 PMPhoto 2018-05-08, 6 13 50 PM

 

I got a two sports bras from Forever 21. I like to wear sports bra both to the gym (obviously) but also to work so I bought a bunch during this shopping trip. The first I got was the Medium Impact Sports Bra in Pink (the bottom image). I have large shoulders, so I have sometimes have issues with the shoulder straps not being big enough. Because these are elastic they easily stretch over my shoulders. I really like this shade of pink, but it comes in some other nice colours. The second Sports Bra I got on sale for $7.00. They grey charcoal colour is simple, and I like the breathable mesh on the back. It’s a simple but well built sports bra.

American Eagle

At American Eagle they had a sale on their denim buy one get one 50% off. I’ve always liked American Eagle denim so I decided to invest in two pairs. Also just to note, the prices online are like $10-20 more expensive than what I paid in store. I don’t know why, but I would suggest going in store because the prices in the links are not what I paid.

First I got these plain High-Waisted Denim Shorts. Everyone needs a plain pair of high waisted shorts. They go with everything! I like American Eagle because they have a little bit of stretch to the fabric but hold their shape after multiple washes. I know I will get lots of wear out of these shorts.

The second pair I got was these floral detailed shorts. I saw these shorts and knew I had to have them. I love floral in general, and I have been looking for a cute pair of floral embroidered shorts. What I also like is that these shorts are also a little distressed, which makes these shorts less dainty. These shorts are also a little longer, so I won’t have the issue of my butt showing which can happen with high waisted shorts.

Finally I got this cute pair of Rainbow Heart Sunglasses. I have been looking for a cute pair of heart sunglasses ever since by brother accidently sat on my last pair (rip). I like these because they have a thin frame and cool duo coloured lens. They shift from orange/pink to blue! The only thing is I didn’t look at them in the mirror, and I bought a pair that looks crocked on my face! So I’m either going to try and return them or see if I can get them fixed.

Winners

Next I went to Winners, which for those of who who are not Canadian is like Marshalls/TJ Max, aka a designer off-price store. So it sells designer clothes, shoes, etc. at cheaper prices. Due to the nature of the store I can’t really find links for you guys, sorry!

First I got this gingham bathing (can you guys tell I like gingham haha!). This bathing suit is actually Juicy Couture and I got it for $33. It is a one-piece but has like big cut out in the stomach, and scoops down like a bikini top. I really like this bathing suit! I think it is fun and flirty and I am so excited to wear this to the beach!

Another sports bra! I got this sage green sports bra from New Balance. This sports bra reminds me of the Calvin Klein ones, but had a semi circle cut out in the back. Unlike the Calvin Klein ones, this one had more supportive material so I could actually use it to work out in. I was able to get the sports bra for $16.99.

Photo 2018-05-07, 5 57 49 PM

Finally I got these Naturalizer mules. I like these because they can be both casual and fancy. Mules/slides are really popular this year and I wanted an open toed pair. This pair has a small heel but nothing too unmanagable because I do not do well with heels. I think these were a good find at $60! (You guys also get to see my tattoo in the photo! And my toes…I’m getting a pedicure today okay haha!)

Garage

The final stop was Garage. It is definitely more of a teen style store but it has some nice basics. First I got this simple Smocked Off-Shoulder Top in black (of course lol). Off the shoulder tops are still very big this year, but this one is a little different with its lettuce hems. This is a great basic that I see myself wearing with shorts, skirts and even a pair of black jeans for a night out. This shirt is going to get a lot of wear.

Photo 2018-05-07, 6 06 01 PM

The final piece of this massive haul is this cropped Coca-Cola tee. Red has been a very popular colour this year, and will continue to be this summer. I feel in love when I saw this tee. I love Coke, and my family loves collecting Coca-Cola products. I also like that even though this is a cropped tee, it’s not too short. As you can see in the picture, this tee hits just above the waist band. This is a fun graphic tee, and the shade would also be prefect for Canada Day haha!

And that is the end of my haul! I am set for the season, now I just need the weather to get warmer. Let me know what your favourite piece was from this haul 🙂
