Very cute, looks great on Jess (as well as every other doll, of course ;)).
The Good: Lots of little pieces. Shirt is cute, and the shorts are adorable. Headkechief is fun, and the purse is really cute (I like pineapples). Shoes are cute to look at, and the Sunglasses are very nice. And the jewelry
The Bad: Shorts are a bit tight (and perhaps, because of that, a bit short). Shoes don't stay on well. And, I personally dislike how well everything matches, but it's all cute, so it's ok.
Another negative is that you can see the body tag, lol. You could probably position the outfit just right, though, so that could be passed by.
I really love the pineapple motif for this outfit. I had went back and forth on this outfit, but I'm so glad that I got it. I really dislike the tightness of the outfit, but overall I'm very happy with it. For the tightness, I give this outfit an A-.
Shirt: B+ The shirt is lime green with a nice flower aplique. It has aqua blue lace on the top and bottom, spaghetti straps with little bows, and a fake halter. The only thing is, it's a wee bit tight on the doll, sometimes the halter straps won't stay closed, and also it is too short. Skin shows through when you put the shorts on. Pretty good quality.
Shorts: B+ The shorts are aqua blue with flowers on them. They have a velcro closer in the front. My complaints are that they are too short, and ride too low. They are also a little tight. Pretty good quality.
Shoes: A The shoes are very cute, with aqua blue straps and fake cork soles. My complaint is that they don't stay on. They have FABRIC things in the back to hold them on, which doesn't work well. Pretty good quality.
Head Kerchief: A Very cute kercheif, in the same print as the shorts. It goes on fairly easily, if you know what you're doing. Good quality.
Pineapple purse: B+ A cute drawstring purse that is shaped like a pineapple. The detail is good. Good quality.
Sunglasses: B+ Sunglasses with blue lenses and little rhinestones that make up a wee pineapple. But the straps bent because they are metal. Pretty good quality.
The whole outfit, minus the sunglasses. Alas, I don't know where those are...
The pineapple bag.
And the back of the outfit. You can see some reasons why I am displeased...
I bought this for my Daughter's birthday this past Summer. I had also bought Jess and I thought it looked like a Jess outfit. This is one of my Daughter's favorites. So far, it has fit all of her dolls. I love the matching purse and sunglasses. It sees a lot of play time and it has held up well. A+

Tropical Breezes Outfit GDOP $22 Your American Girl is ready for a party on the beach in her embroidered halter top, flowered shorts and matching kerchief, and sunglasses. Get her in the spirit of the tropics with a cute pineapple purse and sandals!
This is my favorite outfit! I love pineapples. I just wanted to include a photo of the original sandals that came with this outfit. I don't know when AG changed to not include the pineapple embellishments on the sandals, but these are just way too cute!
