Capsule #3 / Outfit 12
This outfit is so. dang. comfortable. Don’t be fooled by it’s dressy + cute appearance. It’s so easy + comfortable, I’d compare it to throwing on workout clothes.
It’s no secret that I shop at American Eagle a lot. I fully understand that it’s a store targeted at teens, but even still, I always find something I love for a great price. Enter this high neck, brush stroke tank top. I did a double take when I saw it and scooped it up right away. I knew I’d made the right decision when I walked into Anthro a few minutes later and saw a top with almost the exact same print for 4x the price.
Top: American Eagle
Bracelet: Francesca’s (similar)
Bag: Marc Jacobs

I think American Eagle has great stuff. I recently rediscovered their jeans and they are so comfortable and affordable. Love this outfit you’re wearing and you can’t beat the price of that tank!

I’m not sure if this will really make a difference to you or not, but I interned at the AEO headquarters about a year ago and one of the things they really emphasized was that their target was actually the 18 to 25 group, not the high school market. After working there, I really did start to notice the shift in clothing. Also, I love that top (and my go buy it for myself now)!
Hi Dana! What a valuable piece of information! Thanks for clarifying + sharing it with us — that actually does make a big difference. :) xo Caroline
Funny you said that because even in my 50’s I find I love American Eagle. I just got a baseball shirt (really for guys but the sales guy promised not to tell) and I’ve got other top, sweaters there lately too. My son and I go in together!
Cute outfit, BTW. I absolutely live how pared down my wardrobe s now. Initially it’s work but it really pays off.
Ooo… Yes! That shirt is perfect!

That tank is such a great find! I never thought of shopping at American Eagle, but I have no problem checking them out in the future even if I’m beyond their targeted age demo : )

I love this! Yay for comfy cute outfits! Totally agree about American Eagle! And they seem to always have great stuff on sale :)
I love ae for jeggings. Fabulous fit and so affordable. I also love their tomboy jeans. I’m 37 so I guess they are branching upward:)
