L.L. Bean Boots

      I never shy away from looking at new trends to see if there's anything I might want to test our, or something I may decide to pass on. Though the idea of dying the tips of my hair purple and pink has been passed, one trend caught my eye a while ago and it hasn't completely been let go since! What am I talking about? I'm talking about Bean Boots. I'm not too sure when the first time I saw them was, but I think I was browsing through Tumblr when I laid my eyes upon them. They were simply worn, with dark skinny jeans, an over-sized sweater, and a navy pea coat to match it. I was in love.

     Fast forward a few weeks, and the beloved boots were popping up everywhere! I finally caught wind of their name, and they became an instant bookmark in my favorites. The Bean Boots, by L.L. Bean, are absolutely perfect. They're so simple, they are made from the finest material, and they just have this amazing preppy simple vibe that I love! It's like.....they're not flashy, they're just those shoes you want to kick the snow with, but wipe off and wear with something that sparkles or maybe something that's simple as well. From what I've heard, they're perfect for sleet, snow, and rain. Bonus! And the rubber mocs are just as nice too. Though I'm only beginning to learn about their long history, I wouldn't mind having a pair of them right by the door! And even if they're coming out with new wild colors (I heard hot pink and blue boots were next), I'd want to keep it simple with a gorgeous pair of 6" boots in tan and navy! Now if only I could stop being an avid shopper, and save up $89 to snag a pair! Could it be done? I think yes. I do have a pair of snow boots that are somewhat close to the bean boot, but mine are really heavy! I think the boots would be so much lighter!

My good ole' snow boots, which may act as a Bean Boot substitute.

I really like how they have laces! Maybe I should try on a pair and see if I like them on me. :)

I love Bean Boots! I just got a pair for my study abroad adventures in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Brrr, it's going to be rainy and cold). I wanted the classic tan and navy 6inch too, but unfortunately they were sold out in my size :( I settled for these because I really needed a pair and I think they're just great: http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/70226?feat=506700-GN3
