I know on Groundhog Day 2022, they said we have 6 more weeks of winter. But I cannot help but get excited for Spring! The weather here in California has been averaging sunny in the mid-60s. The sun looks so inviting outside. My mind immediately goes to paddle boarding on the lake, walks outside, and all things al fresco! One of the stores I love to shop at, especially for outdoor adventures, is Aerie. Aerie is a sister store to American Eagle. Aerie also has a spin-off brand Offline for great activewear. Here are the pieces that I recently placed an order for:
Aerie Fleece Midi Skirt
I ordered this skirt in black but it does also come in grey. I ordered it in a size XS because I usually opt for the smaller size in skirts, if they are midi length. My height is about 5’5″ so I am right on the line between normal size and petite. The sizes available are XXS-XXL. The description shows a slit in the back, a drawstring waist (and no pockets).
UPDATE: I loved the skirt (and matching hoodie) so much I did an entire week of looks with it on Instagram. The comfort and versatility are off the charts. I would recommend this skirt to everybody.
Aerie Sleeveless Cropped Hoodie
I am hopeless romantic so I can never bring myself to split up a matching set. I ordered the black hoodie in a size S (which says fits a 4/6 top). Sizes XXS-XXL for this piece as well in the two color options. I usually stay truer to size on top, if not order up, since I am a bit bigger in the bust. With a cropped top, I would not want it to be too fitted. So I think the small should be good. I do not typically like hoodie tops because I feel the weight of the hood pulls everything backwards. This hoodie looked like there is a chance it will stay more in place with the fitted waistband though so I am taking the gamble. Plus, it just looks so cute!
OFFLINE By Aerie Real Me Xtra Ruffle Sports Bra
I am so excited and hopeful for this sports bra. The ruffles on the shoulder straps go all the way to the back and it is so cute and girlie coming and going! Ruffles are everywhere for spring and I am here for it! It comes in 9 different colors, sizes XXS-XXL. I ordered the S because all my other OFFLINE tops size S fit me perfect. The cut looks a little low on this sports bra but hopefully it will have decent coverage. *I will update the post if I have to change any sizes.
UPDATE: The small size works. If I would have sized up, I think the straps would have been too loose and they are not adjustable.
OFFLINE By Aerie Military Vest
I cannot say enough good things about this piece! I already received this vest and it floored me with all the details and cuteness. First I’ll say, I did order this vest in a size XS because the picture looked pretty oversized. I did not want to be swimming in it, especially with it being a heavier canvas material. However, when I tried it on, the arm openings felt too snug. I immediately reordered it over the phone with Aerie in size S. They even did 2-day shipping for free to get me the correct size quickly. Thanks Aerie! The size S came today and it is perfection! The waist has an adjustable synch bungie cord. There are 4 functional pockets, 2 at the bust and 2 on the sizes. The cut of the hem goes lower in the back, which I think it such a unique and cute detail. I cannot wait to wear this fun layer! I love the blue color but it also comes in an olive green (sizes XXS-XXL).
Aerie Baseball Hat
I am a sucker for a hat (and good SPF) and Aerie makes some of my favorite baseball hats. You can usually find them on sale for under $10 but I paid full price for this floral hat because it is just so dang cute! It is a soft cotton with light distressing with an adjustable buckle back. The colors will go with everything and add the perfect pop of spring to whatever you pair it with. It also comes in a cute pink/beige cheetah print as well as another fun floral with strawberries. You cannot go wrong with an Aerie hat.
Aerie Seamless Logo High Waisted Boyshort Underwear
Okay, so here is where I feel a little embarrassed to be talking about underwear but it is what it is. Aerie sent me a coupon code for a new pair of undies as part of a couple ‘Happy Birthday’ treats since I am a Real Reward member. And I love trying new products so I found the cutest ,sailor-striped, boyshort pair. (size S.) I refrained from ordering the matching bralette, just because I know I will be getting major reward points from this order and I can use my $10 off reward toward that if the undies are a good as they appear to be. The reviews are good so I am sure there will be another order in my near future! <3
UPDATE: I was blown away by these undies. As soon as I put them on, they gave that sensation of when you take off your bra at the end of the day. Just pure and utter bliss! The material is ‘seamless’ but a fine ribbed material. The stretch is amazing and yet they stay in place nicely. The booty is full coverage and stays put; unlike most other boyshorts that will still expose cheek and give a dreaded pantyline. The stitching on the leg was not tight either. I loved them so much that when I saw them go on sale shortly after my first order, I ordered more in other colors. However, I found that the solid color black pair I got had a slightly smaller fit than both the striped print. I would have been curious to size up on that pair. I made a fun reel on Instagram to show them all off. They are so comfy and cozy they may make you giddy too! Also, I went ahead and ordered the matching bralettes in size Medium and they fit and feel perfect; just as comfy as the undies.
