clara striped bean

This striped shirt from LL Bean is one of my favorite things. I’ve had mine for about 10 years (the white with navy stripes) and my daughter just got a used one in blue with red stripes at a Salvation Army in Maine.  Sadly they aren’t producing it for kids right now, so if you see one used, grab it! I think it’s a such a perfect shirt—great for sunny fall days and cool summer nights…the zipper in the front makes it so if your neck is cold (which mine always is), you can zip it up and you’re covered. The cut of it is super straight, and not clingy. And it’s way cheaper than the French striped shirts, which somehow never really fit me that well, and are frankly too expensive. (I just saw that the black/cream combo is on sale for $29 from $36.)

    I bought a blue with red stripes shirt, the crewneck version, for my oldest child when he was 3. Our third, a girl, has almost outgrown it. It has worn incredibly well! I have two myself – they are my go-to shirt w/ jeans. I love them!
