I’m so, so glad it’s finally Friday! There’s something about the weekend that just gets me excited every single time. Although, as a mom of young kids it’s not like a really get a break, but I love that the days are slower paced and we can have a little more time to just chill.
This weekend is going to be fun. Aria has been asking to get her ears pierced, so I’m going to take her on Saturday to get them done. I found out Claire’s will pierce both ears at the same time. Which is great because I’m not so sure she’d let them do the second one.
Anyway, back to the point of this post. I went into American Eagle for the first time since I was in college. It’s been forever, but I kept hearing and seeing how great their shorts and denim selection were…So I had been dying to get in there!
Honestly, most of the tops were definitely not my style. A lot of crop tops and tighter fitting styles, so and my style. But, they do have great selection of basics, like t-shirts and layering tanks, and if you love button up tops theirs are great. I tried a pink and white stripe button up and boy it was so, so soft!
I also found some great jumpsuits. You all know how much I LOVE JUMPSUITS! They’re easy and comfy, and American Eagle had a some cute ones in store, but I also saw some cute options online too.
But, the main reason I went in was for the denim shorts. I have THE HARDEST time with shorts. I have a smaller waist, but larger butt and thighs. Making shorts very challenging. Often times shorts that fit well in the waist are too tight in the legs, and if they fit my legs they’re too big and I’m constantly pulling at them. The Struggle Is Real over here!
I did find some really cute shorts, plus they happen to be BOGO 50% OFF that day so I ended up grabbing two pairs of denim shorts. Typically in jeans I am anywhere from a 6-10 depending on brand and style, but in their shorts I grabbed a 12. I loved that they weren’t oversized in the was it, even at this size, but fit great in the leg.
So be looking for me in these ALL summer long. These jean shorts are super cute, fit well and I’m so excited to finally find a great fitting pair of shorts!
Do you have a hard time with shorts? If you try out American Eagle let me know! I’d love to hear how you like them!
Hope you have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
