Poor Little It Girl - American Eagle Outfitters Springtime Dresses

One of my go-to brands for springtime dresses is American Eagle Outfitters. For a brand that I wore back in my college days, their styles still work for my everyday life even though I’m no longer a sorority girl in my early 20′s. I was challenged by the AEO team to dress up and dress down two of my favorite looks for the season. For my “dress down” look, I went for an easy mini dress with cut out detailing, added on neon slip on sneakers and mirror aviators for a fun weekend outfit. To dress things up a bit, I couldn’t get enough of this embroidered maxi dress (that I shared my love for back in this post) that paired perfectly with a bold lip and wedges. So let me know, how do you prefer to wear your springtime dresses – dressed up or dressed down?

    The maxi dress was made for you! It’s casual but you still look like a princess. The blue dress is adorable as well, I saw it on sale the other week and I just didn’t see it’s true potential! Great post!

    That maxi dress is amazing!!

  6. Obsessed with the maxi dress! I always forget about AEO… I wore it a lot in high school. I will definitely have to go by their store when I go to the mall later! Always on the lookout for good dresses. Such cute looks!

  7. It’s so funny that you posted this. My husband and I were at the mall this weekend and he asked if I wanted to look at dresses in AEO, and I replied with, “No, I think it’s a little young for me now.”

    But you’ve proved me wrong! They do have some cute items that aren’t only in style if you’re 15 and a size 0, haha. Thanks!

    American Eagle has THE BEST sundresses. Love both of these (been eyeing the cut out one too!) And after all this traveling this month, I need a pair of chic slip ons. Must find some for my closet.

    Love the maxi dress! That look would be perfect for a casual summer wedding. (and kudos for the song – it reminded me of my college days, as well!)
