Day One: Saturday, August 30th

8:00AM:  Hit snooze, you’ve got a big day ahead of you and you are wondering why you thought it was a good idea to set your alarm clock so early the night before.

8:09AM:  Hit snooze again…possibly a few more times.

9:00AM:  Wake up! It’s time to put on your #AEOStyle. Girls, Floral is always a good idea for music festivals. Pair your Don’t Ask Why Cropped T-Shirt back to ripped Jeggings, Cutout Booties and Slouchy Marled Beanie for city sleek festival style. Guys, Joggers are the way to go. Pair your Jogger Pant back to a Plaid Button Down, funky Athletic Sneakers and Paneled Cap for a look that will keep you spotted all night long.

10:15am:  Hail an Uber for super quick service that you can pay for on your phone. It’s so easy!

10:45am:  Grab a coffee at Elixer Coffee. We hear their latte with almond milk is an energy lifter.

11:00am:  Enter the Made In America festival grounds. Be sure to grab an exclusive #AEOMIA T-Shirt!

11:01am:  Take a selfie and let your friends know you’ve made it! (Don’t forget to tag us with #AEOstyle and #AEOMIA)

12:00pm:  Lace up your dancing shoes and head on over to The Neighborhood for songs like Sweater Weather and Afraid.

12:01 PM:  Take another selfie…this time with the stage in the background. Again, tag us with #AEOStyle and #AEOMIA.

1:00PM:  Boogie on over to The National and rock out to “I Need My Girl” and “Graceless“.

2:00PM:  Lunch break! Gorge on festival food. Hopefully Pat’s and Geno’s are selling their famous cheesesteaks. With wiz or without? You can’t go wrong.

3:00-9:00PM:  Bounce from concert to concert listening to awesome bands like Holy Ghost, Baauer and City and Colour.

10:00PM:  Be blown away by the notoriously unexpected performer, Kanye West.

12:30am:  Go to bed, this time pushing your alarm back an extra hour so you’re ready to rise-and-repeat for day two!

Day Two: Sunday, August 31

8:00am:  Rise and shine sleepyhead. Day two is here and it’s time to get up!

9:00am:  Rinse. Wash. Repeat. Dry off from your much needed shower and put on your second round of festival clothes.

10:30am:  Is it thundering? No, that’s just your stomach telling you it wants food now. Belly on up to brunch at the Pub & Kitchen. We hear their Spicy Bloody Mary is one of the best in town.

11:00am:  Ahh, MIA Festival Grounds and you meet again. You’ve got the whole security line system down by now. Text your friends and let them know you’ll meet them in approximately 8-10 minutes…depending on what security guard you get.

12:00pm:  Break out that festival schedule! It’s time to mark down must see bands like Grimes, Girl Talk and Bear Hands.

12:01pm:  Take another selfie…this time with the stage in the background.  Again, tag us with #AEOStyle and #AEOMIA.

1:00PM:  Boogie on over to Pharrell Williams, Spoon and Tiesto!

2:00PM:  Lunch break! Gorge on festival food. Burger and fries anyone?

3:00-9:00PM:  Bounce from concert to concert listening to awesome bands like Mimosa, Vacationer and Gareth Emery.

10:00PM:  Get ready for a super fun concert by headliner, Kings Of Leon.

12:30am:  Relive the weekend in your mind, and put your best festival shots on Instagram. Go to bed with plans to attend next year’s event.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you’ve already began packing or you’re still anxiously scrolling through Pinterest to find the perfect back-to-school looks, it’s not too late to pick up those last minute must-haves. Leave the stress behind and let us show you how easy it is to ace cute and comfortable!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

We think you’ll agree that one of the best parts of going off to college is the freedom. Not just the freedom to stay up until midnight, eating oreos and laughing with your roomie (okay, that’s awesome, too) but the freedom to dress how you want, when you want. You have the rest of your life to be an adult, so for now rock that effortlessly chic look like it’s going out of style.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Whether you plan to spend afternoons doing yoga on the quad or lounging with your besties, our Crop Yoga Pant is something you can’t live without.  Between the soft stretch cotton jersey and lace print waistband, you’ll own multiple pairs by the end of the semester. Yes, they’re that good. Pair with our über-comfortable Seamless Bra to achieve that level of zen you’ll need right before your intense mid-term.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

For all you busy fashionistas running (literally!) from one class to the next, you’re going to love the Best Basics Shop. Throw on our Hide & Peek Plunge Bralette, Scoop Neck Tank and Varsity Jacket Sweatshirt to achieve that simple, yet stylish #OOTD. And the look wouldn’t be complete without our Jogger – a skinny fit that can be dressed up or down. If that doesn’t sound like sweatpant bliss, we don’t know what does.

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Once your #OOTD is picked out, you’ll want to add a little something sweet. Our Hidden Love line of Body Lotion, Body Cream, Body Mist and Perfume offer a pretty mix of fresh fruits, sensual florals and creamy vanilla. Grab a Rollerball to throw in your bag for those late night study sessions!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

Every girl on-the-go will appreciate our adorable Baggu Backpack! With its floral print, double strap and (washing machine-friendly!) cotton canvas, it offers the perfect harmony of cute and functional. Now all that’s left to do is grab your monogrammed notebooks and head to class in style!

What to Pack: Dorm Essentials

After a long day of class, you deserve to unwind in style. We may be a little biased, but our sleep sets are some of the absolute cutest around. Let’s start with our Softest Modal Bralette and Mini Boyfrief. Not only are they made of the softest (you guessed it!) modal, they have the sweetest scalloped lace trim. Throw on a Sleep Top and a pair of Boxers, or one of our Softest Sleep Robes, to drift off to dreamland.

Now that your dorm essentials have been picked out, are you ready for class to begin? The answer: You were born ready. Good luck – we know you’re going to do great! xo

Mani Monday: #AEOSTYLE inspired by nail polish

Nail polish inspiring fashion. Fashion inspiring nail polish. Whichever way you look at it, our new BTS 2014 nail color collection is full of gorgeous colors that we love wearing on our nails and that make us want to put together awesome new outfits! AEO’s Copy Director, Jamie S. here… I’m the one responsible for naming all of our products every season, including our nail polishes! I actually also have a beauty blog, The Beauty of Life, where I interview industry insiders, give you a look into some of my favorite products and beauty looks from the present (and from the past in my Throwback Thursday series), and (staying true to my nail polish obsession) create nail looks every Monday for my #ManiMonday series. Check out my swatches of two colors from the BTS 2014 collection here and see how they inspired a look we’re loving, and then be sure to head to my blog for a download on the rest of the collection!

American-Eagle-Outfitters-BTS-Back-To-School-2014-Nail-Polish-Into-The-Blue-Shining-Sea-Pic-1

 Into the Blue

Into the Blue is a gorgeous deep cobalt. It’s got just a little touch of neon to really make it pop, and the color payoff is incredibly rich. Two coats yield perfect, even, opaque color. This is one of those shades I want to wear year round on my fingers and toes. It’s just got that special something.

American-Eagle-Outfitters-BTS-Back-To-School-2014-Nail-Polish-Into-The-Blue-Shining-Sea-Pic-2

Shining Sea

Shining Sea is that color that just makes you go OOOHHH. The teal base is liberally packed with teal and yellow gold glitter, making the color shift and change with the light. It’s that kind of polish that just makes you keep staring at your nails all day long, just so you can keep admiring its beauty. This was definitely one of the most fun polishes I’ve gotten to name, since it’s really not like anything else I’ve seen out there. It’s the kind of color that makes me excited to paint my nails!

set15_7_24_14_AE_OUTFITS_BTS_NAILPOLISH0418

The perfect pairing for your blue hued nails

I think the two colors complement each other perfectly while still letting each one shine. The outfit we created was inspired by these two colors but really takes on a life of its own. These nail polishes are begging for an outfit that will make people sit up and take notice, and this is the look that does just that. A flowy floral print top with double racer-back straps and a handkerchief hem pairs perfectly back to a faded and whiskered jean. Add a wide-brimmed hat and suede booties with wraparound leather buckles and you’ve got a look that’s a little bit 70’s, a little bit boho and ALL parts cool. I love the way the blue and green polishes pop against the black and white of the top and the various browns of the accessories. This is a look that’s perfect for everything from brunch with your friends to a casual Saturday night date to a look that’s a little dressier for class.

The American Eagle Outfitters BTS 2014 Nail Color Collection is available in select AEO stores nationwide. Find your nearest store at ae.com.
