Love is Love: World Pride 2016

Pittsburgh, Toronto, New York City and San Francisco are not only some of the greatest cities in the world – they also happen to be just a few of the many cities that support a cause that is near and dear to our hearts…Love.

For the fourth year, American Eagle Outfitters is proud to be a supporter of Pittsburgh Pride taking place on the streets of downtown close to our Headquarters on June 12th. And there are many events taking place all over the globe this month! On June 26th, New York City and San Francisco will be hosting their annual themed March and Pride Parade, respectively. We wanted to support the cause too!  So we designed limited edition “Love is Love” t-shirts, underwear and temporary tattoos that will be sold in select stores and online!  To help ensure that these events continue to take place all over the globe, 100% of sales will be donated to InterPride. Read on to learn more about InterPride, what they stand for and the amazing work that they do.

How to Style an Off-The-Shoulder Top

Off-The-Shoulder Tops are one of our favorite trends this summer! Mollie from A Stylish Side Project paired our Off-the-Shoulder Crop Tee with a matching Soft Short for a monochromatic look that can take her from day to night seamlessly.

How to Style a Off-The-Shoulder Crop Tee“Now that summer is officially here, you can find me down the Jersey Shore on any given weekend (and no, it’s nothing like the show!!). Since lugging a huge bag to Penn Station every Friday just doesn’t work for me, it’s important to find pieces that can take me from day to night seamlessly. I’m loving this Aerie two piece set because it does just that! The gauzy material is lightweight and breezy, making it the perfect beach coverup. The trendy off the shoulder style and fun print make it ideal for meeting up with friends post-beach as well. Throw on your favorite wedges, add lipstick, and you’re ready to go!”

Oven-Baked Caprese Kebabs

We’re channeling our excitement for summer’s arrival  into a master list of must-wears, must-dos, must-tries and must-haves to make the Summer of ’16 the best ever. The Almond Eater will be guest-blogging with us throughout the month, so don’t miss any of Erin’s delicious summer recipes. Today, she’s making a summer snack perfect for any picnic.

No grill? No problem! These Caprese Kebabs are made in the oven and ready in 30 minutes or less. Tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and balsamic vinegar make up this easy appetizer–what’s not to love?

There are many kinds of foods that scream “summer”, one of them being kebabs. I also learned that there are approximately four different ways to spell “kebabs”, but this one felt the most accurate to me. Anyway, KEBABS. They’re delicious and a really simple appetizer for summertime.

I’m also certain that you love caprese anything, because how can you not? Tomatoes, mozzarella and basil combine and are drizzled with balsamic vinegar, though I must add the vinegar is optional. The best part of this recipe (in my opinion) is that these caprese kebabs are made in the oven, so even if you don’t have a grill you can still enjoy them.

Oven-Baked Caprese Kebabs made by The Almond Eater.

One of these days I’ll own a grill, but until then, I’ll keep searching for ways to make the most of my oven. If you do own a grill, feel free to utilize that since it may be too hot out to use your oven. If you don’t, I promise these are quick so your oven won’t be on for too long.

The trick here is that you want the tomatoes to be nice and soft, but you don’t want the cheese to completely melt. I opted to cook the tomatoes first, allow a few minutes for them to cool off before assembling the full kebabs with the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil and placing all of them in the oven so everything is warm and slightly cooked. Yes, it requires a tad more patience, but if you want the tomatoes to be soft and the cheese to be somewhat melted, this is what you gotta do, and it works!

If and when you’re searching for a super simple party appetizer, these kebabs should absolutely be it!

Oven-Baked Caprese Kebabs are easy and delicious - a perfect summer appetizer.

Recipe

Ingredients:
8 kebab sticks
16 oz. heirloom or grape tomatoes
8 oz. mozzarella cheese
20 basil leaves, approximately
Drizzle of balsamic vinegar (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Place tomatoes on a nonstick baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes or until tomatoes are soft and slightly browned.
  3. While tomatoes are cooking, break the mozzarella up into bite-size pieces and break 20 basil leaves off of the stem.
  4. Remove tomatoes from oven and wait 5 or so minutes for them to cool off a bit.
  5. Next, assemble the kebabs with tomato, mozzarella piece and a folded basil leaf. Repeat this process until all ingredients are used up and then place the kebabs bake on the nonstick baking sheet and bake for 2-3 minutes or until cheese has softened.
  6. Remove from oven, drizzle with balsamic and enjoy!

Memorial Day Outfits For The Long Weekend

This weekend, we’re finally diving into summer: the sun is out, the temps are rising & it’s the first long weekend of the season! Whether your plans include lounging at the beach, exploring your city or consuming insane amounts of guac and chips at that backyard picnic (our preference!), your #AEOSTYLE needs to be on point this Memorial Day. Keep scrolling to see our take on Memorial Day 2016 style.

GIRLS: If you were waiting to bring the white hues out of hiding after a long hiatus, now is your time. We’re all for breaking the mold & wearing white after Labor Day, but if you’re one to play by the rules we highly encourage a clean, white-inspired Memorial Day Weekend outfit. Start with a white jegging or a pair of hi-rise shorties, and add a crisp button down on top. Keep a muted “Americana” feel with a touch of blue in your shirt or accessories. Add a boater hat and strappy sandals to complete the look.

GUYS: Subtlety call out to the national holiday in your outfit with a cool, relaxed indigo pattern shirt and bright white jeans. Because the shirt is not over-the-top blue, this look feels casual and cool, and it will take you from your Memorial Day party to a night out with friends to keep the celebration going. Finish off the look with a slip on shoe, like a canvas espadrille, for a coastal feel.
