My Everyday Style | 09.23.13


Our friends invited us to go apple picking with them yesterday after church. And since we didn’t have plans, we hopped in the car right after church and headed down to Kinderhook, NY for a lovely fall afternoon. Sometimes it’s the trips that aren’t planned out that end up being the most fun.

I haven’t been in an American Eagle in quite sometime. After teaching high school kids, I sort of just associate that store with teens. I found myself in an American Eagle last week though looking for jeans for Kev. I noticed they had some high waisted jeggings. I hate that word, but I like what they stand for. Sometimes I find that skinny jeans aren’t skinny enough for me. Jeggings seem to be the way to go. As long as they are more jeans than leggings. Anyway. I decided to try them on for the fun of it and well, they are awesome! I got a black pair and then I found these ankle moto style ones. The waist is high but not too high. Perfect!

  1. I agree! I have a problem with not just wanting a plan, but over-planning. One of our fall family goals is to slow down and spend more time enjoying the moment. Kudos on what looks like a fun apple picking trip (and cute outfit post too! I don’t shop at AE either, but maybe they deserve a second look?)

  2. Every once in a while i parooze the american eagle racks and find a gem. LOVE the jeans/leggings/whatevers πŸ™‚

  3. apple picking! reminds me of growing up in the midwest. i’ll have to find out where we can do that out here…but i’m also waiting for the weather to cool off a bit. those jeggings are super cute on you. good find. πŸ™‚

  4. lovely sandals, you look great!
    yay for Halloween pumpkins!

  5. oh i saw this adorable outfit on your instagram yesterday and was wondering about the jeans. btw, how do you like the bonlook glasses? i have been debating them for months, and am just about ready to pull the plug on my ten-year-old pair.

  6. I love them!!! I think they are the best out of all the $100 glasses websites out there. Love the styles and they fit my face really well. Pull the trigger my friend!!!

  7. Totally going to buy those jeggings! So cute. They look great on you. πŸ™‚

  8. I saw your photo on Instagram yesterday and was thinking, “I wonder where she got those jeans?” Never would have guessed American Eagle. I may just have to stop in!

  9. My husband just got an AE gift card for his 30th birthday, and we were laughing and wondering what to do with it. We had planned to get jeans for him, but now I might just steal it and get some for myself!

  10. Omg Finlay’s dress! Where’s it from?

    I love your transition to fall look! I have bought from AE recently but not pants/jeans in years. I just ordered these jeans to give them a try!

  15. Love this look! Seems like an easy outfit to nurse in too which I am always looking for!

  16. Your spontaneous day of apple picking sounds perfect!! And your outfit couldn’t be lovelier… I just ordered one of Merl’s necklaces after seeing you & yen rocking yours. Can not wait to get it!! Come on postman, haha!

  18. Oh, I LOVE American Eagle. Funny, because I’m the one feeling totally weird going into Forever 21! haha. πŸ™‚ I totally want those jeans–I think I’ll go look for them. I’ve never even tried Jeggings before. πŸ™‚
    Much Aloha

  19. I hate the idea of jeggings, but I am actually shocked at how much these look like jeans!
