Backpacks - check. Flannel tartan pajamas - check. Outdoor gear - the mecca. Boat totes - accept nothing but the original. Fun summer wear? Keep on looking...
Not so fast. Apparently someone in Freeport took a stand and declared,
"We must free ourselves from the frump!"
While breezing through their latest clothing for women catalog, I was pleasantly surprised by the perfectly preppy gear they are touting - rightfully so. All a little Boden-esque, minus the crazy graphics. I think you will be equally pleased:
Note: All images courtesy of L.L. Bean
Skyway Canvas Button-front Skirt in Sunburst
Haven Skimmers - also in an adorable pink and green print
Lattice Print Handbag - cute, cute with the skimmers and skirt above.
Petal Poplin Shirt, Polka Dot - love the surprise of pink stripe on the cuffs!
Madras Skort - usually skorts are my krytonite, but it's a commendable effort L.L. Bean
Coastal Macintosh Coat in Glen Green lined in pink and green lobster/crab print
Seersucker belt - perfect with jeans
Seersucker Jacket - slim fit, with three-quarter sleeves
If you are in any way impressed with the above, I highly recommend hightailing it over to their website - where plenty more await.
Enjoy this beautiful weekend!
Yours in renewed faith of a classic (with exemplary customer service),
