Portland, Maine

There are three things I think about when I think about Portland, Maine: the blue color of the ocean off the side of a sail boat, lobsters, and L.L. Bean. A couple of years ago, this American standard launched L.L. Bean Signature, with a nod to heritage and updated classics. I understand the thrill of a new look but for me, sometimes I just want to put on a simple black turtleneck or a cozy autumn sweater with some classic boots and call it a day (like on THIS day for example). So we paid them a visit at their store in Freeport, Maine, that is unbelievably open 24 hours a day – literally shop till you drop! – and then spent the last remaining sunsets of summer in Portland where the red brick contrasts the blue ocean and those white sails go gliding by like a painting that never changes but is always moving on the horizon.

L.L. Bean Signature’s perfect travel bag! Westport Leather Tote.

Portland Lobster Co.

You can’t go to Maine without having Lobster right? That’d be like going to Texas and not having Tex-Mex… shhh, I can’t even thing of such a crime. This is documenting my first Maine lobster roll and being able to say I’ve done it and it was good.
