7 things we love…

After an exhausting (but amazing!) weekend at the Budweiser Made in America music festival, we’re back with another roundup that we put together just for you of all the things inspiring us right now, from what we’re reading and eating to what we’re wearing and listening to. Let us know what you think about our picks in the comments—and give us yours, too!

8.31_7_THINGSImage Source: 1. | 2.| 3. | 3. | 4. | 5. |  6.7.|

WHAT WE’RE WEARING: DR. MARTENS
They’re been a cult classic for decades… and for good reason. Docs, as they’re more colloquially known, bring together every subculture from emo to punk. We’re super excited to be featuring them on our site for the very first time, and we’re totally digging the iconic 1460s in bold floral for girls and rugged leather for guys.

WHAT WE’RE EATING: COCONUT OIL, HONEY AND SEA SALT POPCORN
Is there anything better or more delicious than a bag of freshly popped popcorn? We think not. Snuggle up on the couch for a movie marathon with a bag of this tasty treat, which is not only super easy to make but perfect for savory and sweet lovers alike with its mix of coconut oil, honey and Himalayan pink sea salt.

WHAT WE’RE READING: DOROTHY MUST DIE BY DANIELLE PAIGE
The Wizard of Oz is one of those stories that seems to pop up in everyday conversation at least once. Think about it. Well, this book spins the story into a whole new tornado with its lead character, Amy Gumm, whose sole mission after being recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked is to—you guessed it—make sure everyone’s favorite Ruby Slippers-wearing heroine, well, dies.

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING: CANDIDLY NICOLE
We’ve been fairly obsessed with Nicole Richie ever since she first appeared on The Simple Life with Paris Hilton. And ever since, her various clothing and accessory lines have catapulted her into fashion super stardom (not to mention the fact that she constantly sets beauty trends). But it’s this show, with gems like her dad (yes, the one and only Lionel Richie) trying to teach her how to parallel park, that has us loving her more than ever.

WHAT WE’RE DOWNLOADING: THE B612 APP BY LINE
Let’s “face” it… everyone takes selfies. Well, this app, which uses only your phone’s front-facing camera, is out to change them for the good, better, best. You can take a photo by touching any part of the screen and perfect it with 43 different photo filters. Oh, and it doesn’t make a shutter sound, so no one has to know what you’re really up to while you hold your phone in front of your face. Now come on, #letstakeaselfie.

WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO: ANOTHER STORY BY THE HEAD AND THE HEART
Melancholy. Sweet. Romantic. Endearing. This song is all that and more. You know the quirky love story, Juno? That’s what this indie folk band from Seattle makes us think of every time we play it.

WHERE WE’RE GOING: THE JERSEY SHORE
Summer may be officially over, but we’re pretending it isn’t with one last trip to the beach. Whether you want to party like your favorite (least favorite?) friends from MTV’s now-kaput show or not, the Jersey Shore offers a little something for everyone. Spend a day at Six Flags Great Adventure, take in a minor league baseball game, visit a lighthouse, go out to the clubs, stroll up and down the boardwalk, just relax on the beach… it’s pretty obvious you’re bound to have a good time no matter what.

AEO: Have you been to Philadelphia before? If so, what are your favorite haunts and if not, what are you excited to experience for the first time?

Cara: I’ve never been to Philadelphia, and I am SO excited to go!! I am looking forward to checking out the Liberty Bell, walking the “Rocky” Steps and indulging in a soft pretzel!

AEO: Who are you most excited to see perform? What is your favorite type of music and how does it inspire your fashion choices?

Cara: Where do I begin!? I can’t wait to see Pharrell Williams and Kanye West, of course, but Chromeo, Girl Talk and The National are going to be amazing too!

Music definitely inspires my fashion choices. I love everything from jazz to hip-hip to blues to 90’s pop, so depending on what I am listening to, I can be found wearing cut-offs or a gown or a simple little dress.

AEO: What goes into your bag at the festival?

Cara: Water, lipgloss, a camera, my iPhone, Vega Protein Bars, sunglasses, sunscreen, an AEO sweater for when it starts to cool down, a backup iPhone charger and a hat.

AEO: What festival style advice can you give to our readers?

Cara: Make sure to dress comfortably and wear layers. It can be toasty during the day, but it can cool down quickly in the evening. Wear closed-toe shoes as it can be dusty and lots of drinks and water can spill on your feet. Also, make sure to wear shades, sunscreen and a hat!

Budweiser Made In America X AEO Blogger Guide: Tobruck Ave.

This week, we’ll be bringing you tips and tricks on what to pack from four of our favorite fashion bloggers, who not only have great style, they have great taste in music as well! Check out Kiara Schwartz’s post below and get ready to rock this weekend at Budweiser Made In America!

BLOG: Tobruck Ave.
NAME: Kiara Schwartz
CITY ATTENDINGPhiladelphia

AEO: What are your must-have festival essentials?

Kiara: My festival essentials always include the most used and most easily lost items. I always have an extra charger for my iPhone, otherwise it’s impossible to stay connected without it! I also always bring along sunglasses, sunscreen, a second layer sweater or a kimono for when the sun goes down.

AEO: What is your perfect #AEOStyle festival outfit?

Kiara: The perfect look for the Budweiser Made in America festival will be surrounded by my favorite American Eagle denim picks! I am so excited to rock the denim Jeggings with a pretty lace top over them, along with some perfect festival-stomping booties.

Kiara’s #AEOStyle festival picks.

Shop the look:
Don’t Ask Why Muscle T-Shirt
Boy Jean
Moto Vest
Textured Zip Bootie
Striped Backpack
Glory Hats by Francis Fratelli
Embroidered Print Triangle Bikini Top
Blue Mirrored Aviator Sunglasses
Turquoise Dreamcatcher Necklace
Turquoise Studded Cuff

AEO: What are you packing for the Budweiser Made in America festival?

Kiara: Festivals always call for hats! Hats add a bohemian element while also hiding second-day festival hair. My polaroid camera and some fake tattoos will also be along for the ride. I’ll also be bringing crop tops, overalls and silky lace tanks and dresses.

AEO: Have you been to Philadelphia before? If so, what are your favorite haunts and if not, what are you excited to experience for the first time?

Kiara: I have never been before but have always wanted to go, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the city has to offer. My close friend used to live there, and she’s given me some tips on where to wander. I am expecting it to have an amazing energy and a little bit of grunginess and lots of brick buildings and cool rooftops. I can’t wait!

AEO: Who are you most excited to see perform? What is your favorite type of music and how does it inspire your fashion choices?

Kiara: The line up for this festival is so good! I listen mostly to indie or rock and definitely love jamming to some good dance songs as well. I like anything that gets me moving. I am most excited to see The National, City and Color, Vacationer and of course Kanye! His shows are always talked about, so I can’t wait to see him live for the first time.

AEO: What goes into your bag at the festival?

Kiara: Being a Coachella veteran, I have learned over the years that less is more and essentials are key! A bottle of water, an extra iPhone charger, sunscreen, lipstick and bronzer for quick beauty refreshers as well as my film and polaroid camera.

AEO: What festival style advice can you give to our readers?

Kiara: A day at a festival includes so many activities, so your outfit should be ready for any adventure. That means, layering up and wearing flat booties (as opposed to sandals as getting your toes stepped on in the midst of a dance party is a total downer!). Denim shorts, a crop top, a kimono for layering and a hat to top it off is my go-to festival outfit. My other favorite combination is a lace dress with a kimono and booties with a fun feather headpiece. The key is to layer, and keep things loose and comfy!
