Once upon a time I hated going to L.L.Bean every year before school. Each year my family would take the long trip to the Freeport store where my little sister and I would pick out new backpacks and lunch boxes for the school year. And of course we’d always have them embroidered and personalized with our names. Although all of that sounds amazing to me now, I absolutely hated it then. I really just wanted the basic backpack from the department store like every other kid. I’d always throw a fit and refuse to get any of the Bean Boots that my dad wanted me to have for the cold Maine winter. And any classic fleece pullover that I was given would live unworn and untouched in the back of my closet.
Fast forward to now- I’m sitting here dying for a pair of Bean Boots (they don’t fit my tiny size 5.5 feet. And no. I don’t want the kids boots. But more on that at another time) and I’ve been stalking the new pullovers ever since they brought back the good ol’ classic style and cute logo.
And then I found this beauty. Its similar to the old pullover style I’m used to with the classic L.L.Bean signature patch. But as a fun little bonus they added trendy button detailing and an oversized collar. It’s also a fraction of the price of the fleece and just as useful! I knew I needed it as soon as I saw it! But at that time I was still living in Texas and just couldn’t justify buying something so warm. But now here I am, back in the great state of Maine. And this Mainer needed some more L.L.Bean in her life!
I popped this beauty on as soon as it arrived at my doorstep. It fits TTS and is so comfortable! The quality is amazing, but I would expect nothing less from L.L.Bean. The weight is perfect for this transitional fall period and will be great layered with a flannel underneath or with an excursion vest over it when it gets cooler outside. I cannot wait to style this beauty all year long! It comes in two amazing solid colors and 3 pretty stripe options and I’m pretty sure I need them all!

I took these pictures to celebrate not only my new favorite pullover, but my 1,000th Instagram post! Have you ever creeped back on your Instagram page?! Well I did. And let me tell you- it’s a trip! But it’s so fun and a little funny to see how far I’ve come since my first post. Although I get extremely annoyed with Instagram and all the algorithm changes sometimes, it’s still my favorite social media app and deep down I love it. And if you’re looking for a new account to follow- hit me up! I strive to make my page full of fun, preppy looks and New England fashion inspiration and would LOVE to connect with you!
