Basics at AEO on 34th Street

Today's guest staff post is by Catherine, who stopped by AEO on 34th Street for some T's. Thanks, Catherine!

I'm a simple girl who likes simple things. And I really like simple things that come at reasonable prices, so I was pretty pleased with American Eagle Outfitters' spring offerings.

AE has a nice assortment of super soft, basic tees that beg to be layered. I admit they're nothing ground-breaking, but they're a necessary staple for spring. I paired one (below) with an Oxford shirt. In retrospect, perhaps coral wasn't the best choice for my blinding paleness. Regardless, they are great, thick shirts and come in both solids and gingham.

They have a huge selection of graphic tees for women, all of which are buy one, get one 1/2 off right now. When you're looking at starter prices of $15-19, that's a great deal.

Graphic Tees, $15.50-$19.50, currently BOGO 1/2 off

I found some sparkle in this collection of beaded tees. There were at least 6-7 different styles to choose from, mostly in white, gray and blue tones. I love this charcoal top with tons of detailing, including studs, beads, and sequins.
