American Eagle Style Challenge


Today I am teaming up with American Eagle and my good friend Ashlyn with Let It Be Beautiful for a style challenge series. We wanted to show you ladies a couple of weekend wear ideas that incorporate tribal prints for the spring and summer months. Make sure to head over to Ashlyn's blog to see additional pictures of her look.

Express Crop Top (coupon codes to Express) // American Eagle Pants c/o (coupon codes for American Eagle) // Forever 21 Denim Vest (option here and here) // Chuck Taylor Converse // Forever 21 Tote // Lookbook Store Necklace c/o (option) // Michael Kors Watch c/o The Jeweler's Wife // Nordstrom Leather Wrap Bracelet c/o // Forever 21 Sunglasses (option)

While Ashlyn chose to style romper pant suit great for a Saturday date or Sunday brunch, I went with a pair of track pants for a comfortable, casual look, perfect for running errands. If you are interested in the pants I am wearing today, make sure to size down.

I am a huge fan of a track style pants with an elastic waist. I have styled and worn a few on my blog before. I know some of you are on the fence about this style, but I promise you that if you give them a try you will be sold as well. They are super comfortable, light, airy and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the day's activities. 

Something else I have been drawn to for years is a black, white and red color combination. Ashlyn and I both paired our black and white pieces with pops of red. It's a palette the never goes out of style and can make a statement without being too bold with colors. 

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was eventful to say the least. We celebrated our oldest daughter's birthday, enjoyed the gorgeous Texas spring weather, went to the iHeartRadio Country Fest (words cannot describe this show and how blessed I was that I ended up going) and had a family reunion on Sunday. I am dragging today and exhausted, but all the running around was worth it. This past weekend is definitely going down as one of the best in the 2014 book!

Very fun laid back outfit. Track pants are not my thing but I am sure if I tried a pair that I would end up living in them.

Glad you had such a great weekend and ended up going to the concert! I'm excited to hear about it! And you look so cute - I'm still on the fence about the pants but I'm just going to have to jump in and try them.

I love track pants too, great styling love it!

Susan Jeffries said...

I thought this would be a post better suited for my daughter when I saw it on IG last night, but I LOVE this! I bought a pair of track pants the last time I saw them on your blog and I have not worn them yet. I am pulling them out now!! Love this and I dont think I am too old (or at least I hope not!). And on a side note, I have an AE denim vest that is 20 years old - still looks new! How funny is that?! Susan

Your pants are so fun!

Nina Piccini said...

I LOVE THESE PANTS! So hip and chic; casual and dressy!
Think I could get away with them at the office? We have a somewhat loose business casual dress code... and those don't appear to be denim-like... :)

love your sneaks too, I just got mine in the mail and can't stop wearing them

You go Shanna!

Track pants are my fave trend this spring. You get to be soooo comfortable AND look cute at the same time.

Johanna said...

I love the way you styled those pants. They are indeed the most comfy pants to run around in. And AE jeans are literally my favorite jeans on earth. Highly recommend the jeggings! Happy Monday!

I love cosy, elastic waist romper pants, they are the grown up versions of sweatpants! You look fun and casual and pulled together (as usual), and I love American Eagle…I'm obsessed!

Those pants are so fun and comfy–perfect for a lazy day wandering around the city!

Whitney said...

Does anyone have any feedback for track pants on girls with curvier bottom halfs? The comfort factor is very intriguing but I'm not sure that the pants would be very flattering on me.

I have been eyeing up the Camo version of these pants for summer. They look so comfortable - and I think with a black tank and a vest they'd be awesome. Thanks for the push in the right direction!!! ox

I don't think I'd be brave enough to wear these pants but this outfit just screams casual and fun! Love it!

Janna Renee said...

I will pretty much always be an American Eagle fan. I love that they tend to carry more classic styles that don't go out of style, but they do push the edge of fashion to keep it fun. I love both outfits!
