highlighting RALPH LAUREN!
Ralph! I totally agree!
Who care about labels and fashion…..it’s all about STYLE!
And STYLE is just about wearing things that make you feel like the best version of you!
I saw this picture, and I thought it totally embodied the “All American Style” that I think of when I think of ol’ Ralph.
A white t-shirt and jeans.
Doesn’t get much more American than that!
And then 6 additional words came to mind:
LAY OFF THE TANNING BED RALPH.
He’s just a tad too leathery for my taste.
but I do own some big brass earrings and a brass necklace!
Here is my interpretation:
That’s right. I’m wearing denim on denim for the first time since like ’84.
But let’s be clear that I was only wearing it in my house.
I’m not saying it was wonderful, but I would like to quote my friend Andrea after I sent her the picture.
She said, “I was not as offended as I thought I would be.”

I don’t know if I have enough courage to actually step out of the house rockin the denim on denim.
But I have to tell you…..
I kinda liked the way it looked.
AM I CRAZY?
Because it FEELS crazy!
Seriously, please sound off in the comments.
Would you leave the house in my denim on denim ensemble?
I’m dying to know if I’m a total nut job for kinda liking it!
Now is when I would NORMALLY create a Pinterest collage of all denim on denim looks to make a case for my look and convince all of you!
However, in this instance, I cannot do that.
No ma’m, I cannot.
Not because there aren’t plenty of denim on denim looks on Pinterest, because there are.
But because most of the images did nothing but make a case for the fact that one should EVER wear denim on denim.
Anyway, I didn’t want my one look for today to be denim on denim.
So, because I am still getting over my cold (I KNOW!) I looked back for some of my previous looks that have an “All American” vibe.
This one was pretty recent.
The classic white and denim.
I bought this shirt last season. It’s kind of expensive, but I wear
it constantly and it is a great fit. Worth the money in my opinion.
White Cut-offs| GAP, exact pair HERE*
although they are running out of sizes.
Necklace| Stella and Dot, exact necklace HERE
Earrings| Stella and Dot, exact earrings HERE

This look has Ralph Lauren written all over it,
although none of the pieces are actually Ralph Lauren.
Classic white oxford, dark denim, and a pop of red.
LOVE the pop of red!
White Oxford| GAP, similar HERE
Dark Distressed Jeans| GAP, no longer available (WAY better version HERE)
Red patent ballet flats| GAP
(very cute, but VERY uncomfortable…never wore them again…not even once)
I thought I would look for some other pops of red that would look great paired with denim (or anything really).
AMAZING reviews on these bad boys. Unlike my flats above that were only worn ONCE, these babies are supposed to be crazy comfortable.
Red and White striped TOMS wedges HERE.
Great price at under $100!
Love the woven material with the red accents.
And if you are looking to add a Ralph Lauren piece to your closet (or to the closet of one of your people), I searched the sales!
I LOVE the short and long sleeved Polos for my little fella.
My man wears a short sleeved Polo with khaki pants 4 days per week.
He wears a Polo with jeans on Friday.
Also….don’t forget that the GAP sale ends tomorrow!
Extra 30% off all sale styles!
There are some SERIOUSLY AMAZING deals to be had!
Really, you need to at least look around. There are shorts for as low as like $12 and shirts for $10!

And one more thing..
I gave you wrong information about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Sorry!
It isn’t open to the public (non card-holders) until Friday the 19th. But never fear, I got my hands on a catalog, and I’m already scoping things out like crazy and calling it “research”. And I plan on heading to the mall on Tuesday to try on several of the pieces I have my eyes on for us! If you are a cardholder and get to shop early, you can e-mail me if you want to know my preliminary pics (before I get to try the items on).
I will definitely be posting my favorite items late next week.
And fyi: it appears that “wine” is the color of the fall.
Oh wait! There is YET ANOTHER LOFT SALE today!
50% off a lot of new merchandise!
Click HERE to shop the entire sale, but I also thought I would highlight some of my favorites!
Click HERE for the maxi, Click HERE for the blazer, Click HERE for the romper
All 3 items have great reviews!
The maxi has 53 NEAR PERFECT reviews! I wanted to try it on in store, but they were totally out. One of the ladies that works there had it on and it was SUPER cute and very flattering.
HOW CUTE WOULD IT BE WITH OUR DENIM JACKET?!? 🙂
And he blazer below is a great alternative to the sold out Nordstrom one.
