AEO: What are you packing for the Budweiser Made in America festival?
Arielle: I’m packing a few of my favorite American Eagle denim styles! My suitcase includes one pair of AEO distressed vintage jeans, the AEO Jegging Button Down Shirt, a printed floral skirt and a mini dress. I’m also packing a pair of ankle boots, flats, and a bunch of long necklaces and statement earrings to accessorize with.
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?
Arielle: My fiancé, Brandon, went to UPENN, so I’ve been to Philadelphia a few times! He would know all the popular restaurant names better than I do, but I do know one of our favorites is POD Restaurant – it’s great! I’m really excited to eat there again. I hope while we’re there he can show me some fun places to shop – even though he hates shopping!
POD, one of Arielle’s favorite restaurants in Philadelphia.
AEO: Who are you most excited to see perform? What is your favorite type of music and how does it inspire your fashion choices?
Arielle: There are way too many performers that I’m excited to see! My music taste is a mix of everything; I have the strangest iTunes library ever. It includes a mix of rap, hip-hop, country, rock, Latin music, pop and more. I think it makes so much sense when it comes to influencing my style because I do like to change it up every day. One day I’m preppy, the next I’ll go grungy and the next I’m dressed classic and simple. My style is all based on my mood, and my music makes and changes my mood constantly. If I have to choose, I’m really excited to see Kings of Leon, Chromeo, Kanye West and Pharrell!
AEO: What does into your bag at the festival?
Arielle: My bag essentials for festivals always includes water, my iPhone, a pack of gum, a camera, my wallet, sunglasses, a mophie charger, lipgloss and suntan lotion. Sometimes I even sneak in a little bag of Sour Patch Kids as a snack.
AEO: What festival style advice can you give to our readers?
Arielle: My advice would be to go with someone you love. It’s so much more fun to see your favorite performers, dance like nobody is watching and have the time of your life when you’re with someone you genuinely love hanging out with.
