The Search for Sun & Surf – American Eagle Spring/Summer 2011 Collection

“The Search for Sea, Sun & Surf” is something I stole from American Eagle but I think after what seems like a year of winter, we’ll all searching for sun and surf (by the way, this saying is on a Navy Canvas bag from AE’s summer collection). Funny enough, one of the numerous snow storm we had was going on while I attended this preview – needless to say I didn’t want to leave. American Eagle created such an amazing atmosphere, I really did believe I was on a beach in sunny California waiting for a gnarly wave to roll in.

I imagined myself wearing one of the adorable summer dresses (either alone or over a bikini) as I take American Eagle’s advice and “take the new path” (which was showcased in big bold letters), particularly to a warmer place than New York. One great trend that appears throughout the collection was the multi-cultural aspect –

Several separates also caught my attention as well, pieces that looked so comfortable and inviting whether wearing them alone while relaxing at home or just hanging out. Some of my faves were the Drapey high-Waist Shorts, the cute Tiered Vest, the Satiny Drawstring Tank and Full Paisley Skirt.

The colorful accessories were of course a hit with me – the gorgeous navy/tan wide brimmed beach hat, the Aztec inspired cuffs, the chic nautical flats and the various bags.


An although our days are getting a touch warmer, this blogger is anxiously awaiting the times when the “Search for Sea, Sun & Surf” is over and we basking in the glory of warm weather.
