Any Mainer (or former Mainer, as the case may be) worth their Lobster and Chickadees is almost required to have an old pair of L.L. Bean Duck boots hiding in the back of their closet. L.L. Bean has been around for nearly a century and finally received a breath of fresh air with the new Signature Collection. The pieces above are my favorites, I love the subtle nod to the 1970's, like something my mom would have worn running around Portland when she was younger. I'll definitely be saving my pennies for the Mariner Leather Purse. It's all making me incredibly nostalgic for home!
