A MIDSIZE influencer has picked up a few new pieces that she said were perfect for the summer-to-fall transition.
One sweater especially, shocked and stunned her with how much she adored it.
Balkanina (@balkanina), a fashion influencer, shared the fall haul with over 520,000 TikTok followers.
“Aerie and American Eagle haul for fall, this is going to be so good, they’re pieces that can transition easily from summer to fall,” she said.
The size 10 fashion influencer with a self-dubbed “thick tummy” tried on a brown bodysuit, $40: “This is literally buttery soft, I honestly feel like I could go down a size, it’s extremely stretchy,” she explained.
She also adored how the bodysuit was double-lined, allowing her to go braless.
One feature she wished the bodysuit had, however, was the conventional snap buttons that usually accompanied bodysuits.
She paired the bodysuit with a pair of denim-styled cargo pants, $27: “They literally feel like sweatpants, I sized down to a medium because I read the reviews that they run really big,” she advised.
Venturing into cozier pieces, she tried on a brown Aerie sweater, $42: “It’s nice and oversized, it’s got nice bubble sleeves, functional buttons on the collar, I love this for casual but you can still dress it up,” she said.
Balkanina wasn’t obsessed with a brown flannel, $42, she picked up because it didn’t quite create the oversized look she wanted.

“It’s very soft and I like it but I think I need to size up to get that look I wanted,” she said.
Similarly, she wasn’t so sure about a brown button-up: “It’s supposed to be very oversized, like a boyfriend shirt, I got a medium and it’s huge, I might have to style it to decide if we’re keeping it,” she said.
For outerwear, she picked up a denim shacket, $88: “It’s got the jean jacket feel, it’s a little bit thicker, I love it, I think this is going to be a fall staple.”
She raved about a sweater, $45, that surprised her with its popularity: “This sweater is selling like crazy, Aerie has the best fall sweaters,” she said.
“Nice and oversized, I love the dimension it has going… you got like a chunky knit.”
Last but not least, she picked up a brown Aerie sweatshirt, $38, which was a no-brainer: “You can never go wrong with an Aerie sweatshirt,” she said.
People took to the comments to share their thoughts on her latest haul.
One viewer disagreed with her take on the bodysuit buttons: “Omg I LOVE no snaps in the crotch, mine always pop open,” they said.

“Oh I actually hate snaps in the crotch so that’s awesome!” agreed another.
Many were influenced by her video and reviews: “Okay I’m not an AE/Aerie girl but you’re influencing me,” joked one fan.
