American Paradise

As John Mayer's latest album Paradise Valley stays on repeat in my car, I can't help but think of the spirit of Americana.
With songs inspired by the Midwest, the music makes me imagine wide open spaces, cool mountain breezes, the smell of fresh pine and the style of Ralph Lauren.
Listening to Wildfire as the last rays of summer fade, you can dress the part in fringe, leather and lace as seen in Ralph Lauren's Spring 2011 collection.

As the temperatures drop, transition your wardrobe as easily as a paper doll from the lightness of lace to the warm cocoon of plaids and Native-American inspired layers like those seen in the Fall 2008 Ralph Lauren collection.
