It’s amazing how energized I feel after taking some time off from my day job and letting Fashables rest for a week. But hey, we’re back!

I headed to New Orleans last Wednesday and met up with some friends from back home in NC, which is always fun. I returned back to NYC Saturday evening around 11pm and then hopped on a train first thing Sunday morning to head to the Jersey Shore. The weekend really couldn’t have been much better.

From New Orleans to the Jersey Shore, the heat was intense (takes time to get used to when it’s been so chilly) and I found myself wanting to wear less and less clothing. One item that I wore a lot was a very basic t-shirt from American Eagle.

This particular shirt is the American Eagle Solid Crew and it comes in eight different colors. It’s soft and lightweight, which made it perfect to wear in the heat.

There’s not a massive amount to say about such a simple shirt, but the various colors make this a quick easy option for guys to toss on and head out the door. This shade of blue isn’t something I’ve worn before, but it has a nice pop and I’m a fan. If you prefer v-neck t’s they have those as well.

The American Eagle website says the shirts are $15.50, but I’m almost certain that I bought them in the store for $10.
