One of the major backend components of blogging is giving attention to the metrics on various parts of the site and through content I share, including the analytics pertaining to items that garner attention from clicks or sales. One of my biggest takeaways is that many of you seem to love L.L. Bean, even if the brand isn’t one of your go-tos for everyday wear. I spent many years thinking of L.L. Bean as solely an outdoors brand and while they’re definitely leaders in that realm, also make some of the best basics, clothing, and travel accessories on the market. I wanted to round up some of my favorite pieces on their site right now–I’m avoiding the things I talk about all the time (like the Sweater Fleece and Bean Boots) but highlighting some new arrivals to keep on your radar both for yourself and for early gift buying, since everything is currently 25% off through Tuesday!
P.S. The image above is from this time last year!
A festive take on one of my go-tos! There are three colorways and if you’re looking for seasonally-centric loungwear (or a more versatile take on a PJ top!), consider this one.
Over the past few years in the world of cozy pullovers, L.L. Bean has been giving major go-to fleece brands like North Face and Patagonia a run for their money!
I have a winter beanie but it’s a boring black one that I snagged on sale for $6 at Banana Republic five years ago! There’s nothing really wrong with it but I’ve been trying to find the “perfect” one–which I think includes a little pom up top. This one’s a contender!
It’s been great seeing retailers release more and more items that are leggings-friendly in a polished way! My new office is casual and I’d wear this with boots to feel pulled together but still very comfy.
There are always a couple new light turtleneck sweaters (perfect for the office!) and I really like this one. The pattern is simple but present and it can easily be dressed up and down. The best part is that it’s a cotton-cashmere blend (95% cotton!) which is one of my favorite combinations.
Kind of bright and loud socks but I love their signature Katahdin logo. People tend to grumble about socks as gifts, but I’d argue that these would be much more well-received!
The ultimate holiday sweater–a splurge, but a good one! This is one you could keep for seasons to come and would work just as well for an sweater party as it would for more regular wear throughout the season.
