"Application Architecture" is the architecture of an application -- the software -- while "System Architecture" is the architecture of the whole system including any applications, databases, hardware nodes, etc. that make up the system.

Obviously this is just one definition for these terms. I've seen many people talk about system architecture even though they've actually meant the structure of the application.
