American Girl

Sweater: Courtesy of Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren // Skirt: Courtesy of Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren // Boots: Target, gift // Socks: Forever 21, $2.50 // Necklace: jcpenney, $10

As a Midwestern girl through and through, I've always been drawn to the classic American aesthetic of Ralph Lauren's sportswear. Naturally, I was eager to try out a couple of pieces from the new line, Denim & Supply. It captures the same spirit and heritage as Ralph Lauren but has a more rugged, lived-in feel.

The tiered ruffles on the skirt give a playful update to classic plaid, while the almost unfinished look of the sweater, along with its neutral palette, will lend itself to so many outfits. These two pieces will be right at home in this girl's closet.

as a Kansas/midwestern girl i love classic americana too. ralph lauren is the best- i'm not sure what the difference is with the sports wear line though. here's an americana look I did last week!

Gotta love red plaid. I really love the volume of the skirt - it's playful but still mature. I also love the socks peeking out from the tops of the boots. That's one of my favorite looks for fall and winter. Adorable!
