I AM GALLA: AEO FALL FAVORITES

It’s time to refresh your closet for Fall and Adam of I AM GALLA is here to help. He picked his favorite pieces from our Back to School collection and styled two must-have looks for the upcoming season.

He loves this collection because it’s rugged and woodsy. The textures in Flex/Denim and knits as well as the fall colors are spot on with his style for the up and coming season.

Read on to find out more about the two looks he put together and the pieces you need to transition your wardrobe into the cooler weather.

What inspired Adam’s look: “As soon as I saw the AEO Cargo Jogger Pants I had to have them in my wardrobe. Not only is the color perfect for fall transitioning but they’re also really versatile. In this particular case I styled them with a basic white tee and a jean jacket for a casual-cool vibe.”

What inspired Adam’s look: “I got my new bike for the summer so when I’m in the city I can just ride from my apartment to the office 10 minutes away! It’s honestly such a breeze but sometimes my outfit gets in the way because it’s too restricting and tight. That leads me to the first reason why I love the Flex/Denim collection by AEO because the fabric is breathable and provides comfort on my morning commutes. Another great perk to the flex is that they only need easy care. The lighter fabric means quicker drying after washing and also less wrinkles from the dryer, a win-win in my book!”

Slim Extreme Flex
AEO Plaid Western Button Down Shirt
AEO Surplus Jacket

I’MPERFECT

imperfect

One size doesn’t fit all. Never has. Surely 99% of the world is a better measure of perfection than the 1%. We put our blood, sweat and tears into designing the best fits, the latest washes and sizes designed for everybody. And our #AEOJEANS are the perfect fit.

Movie We Love: The Fault in Our Stars

tfios

Back in April, the bestselling book, The Fault in Our Stars was one of the 7 things we loved… and we were anxiously awaiting the premiere of the movie. The tearjerker about teen cancer sufferers Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters was released on June 6 and, suffice it to say, we were definitely not disappointed. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort were utterly adorable and inspirational on screen, and we have to admit, brought tears to our eyes more than once. Above all, we were inspired by the message of positivity and living every day to the fullest.

We also loved Gus and Hazel’s laidback style throughout the film. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite AEO pieces to help you recreate their looks.

Another reason we love this film is because it was shot in our very own hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. If you’re ever in Pittsburgh, here are the must-stop locations where some of the scenes were filmed.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Mt. Lebanon: This is where they filmed the support group scenes and where Hazel and Gus first meet.

Oakmont: While we don’t know exactly where the crew filmed in Oakmont, this was the location of Hazel’s house. Take a drive towards the iconic Oakmont Country Club and you’re likely to see some familiar surroundings from the movie.

Allegheny General Hospital Suburban Campus: All of the hospital scenes were shot here.

7 things we love…

We’re back with another 7 Things We Love! Here are all the things inspiring us right this second, from what we’re eating and watching to what we’re wearing and downloading. Let us know what you think about our picks in the comments—and give us yours, too!

7-things

WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO: WATER FOUNTAIN BY tUnE-yArDs
When playing live, New England native Merrill Garbus can create drum loops on the spot and layer them with ukulele, vocals and electric bass. The first single off her 3rd album, Nikki Nack, “Water Fountain” is an awesome mix of eclectic, upbeat and world music inspiration. This is definitely the kind of song that will be stuck in your head for days on end (in a good way, of course).

WHAT WE’RE DOWNLOADING: 100 NEW EMOJIS 
Avery Monson is kind of a genius with this new Vine, which features everything from “A Tupperware Container Full of Secrets” and “Season 3 of The OC on Blu-Ray” to “Incriminating Browser History” and “A Guy Who Refuses to Eat Over-Ripe Bananas.” Each one is darn near perfect in its execution—we dare you not to keep watching (and pausing) for hours at a time.

WHERE WE’RE GOING: BALTIMORE, MD
The Kentucky Derby may be this weekend, but we’re gearing up for Preakness Stakes… or, our favorite part of it, “The Freakness.” This giant outdoor party attracts thousands of people and always promises to be a good time. While you’re in town, why not enjoy some of what Baltimore has to offer, like the sights of the inner harbor and the locally owned shops and restaurants in Fell’s Point. (Or if you’re into baseball, a visit to the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum is a worthy stop.)

WHAT WE’RE READING: THE SELECTION SERIES BY KIERA CASS
In this series’ (near) dystopian future, America has become Illéa, an empire complete with a system of eight castes and The Selection, a competition for the prince’s hand in marriage. America Singer, a Five, becomes one of 35 girls to enter the competition. These books are full of intrigue and plot twists you’ll never see coming—and with Cass’s third book, The One, coming out on May 6, we can’t wait to find out what happens next. If you’re a fan of dystopian literature like The Hunger Games, Divergent and Delirium, this series is a must read.

WHAT WE’RE EATING: FISH TACOS WITH MANGO MINT COCONUT COLESLAW
Say what you want about Gwyneth Paltrow, but the woman can come up with some seriously amazing recipes. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in true #AEOSTYLE with these fish tacos, which combine cod coated in salt and pepper with charred peppers and some good ol’ fashioned grill time. Be sure to top them with this fresh take on cabbage slaw.

WHAT WE’RE WEARING: NINA PUSHUP PINEAPPLE BIKINI TOP
Pineapples are this season’s IT print. They lend an immediately cheerful and retro-inspired vibe to every outfit, and we’re simply loving them festooned on our Nina bikini top. Plus, now we’re totally ready for a visit to the Dole plantation in Hawaii.

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING: NEIGHBORS
Okay, so technically this movie doesn’t come out until next week. But we’re already obsessed with the new sure to be hilarious movie starring Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a couple with a new baby and Zac Efron and Dave Franco as the leaders of a raucous fraternity who moves in next door. We can’t even count how many times we’ve already watched the trailer.
