My Latest Love – Practical Fashion at L.L.Bean
I love anything that makes my life easier, especially when you pair that philosophy with fashion. It's a beautiful combination. Well, I've found one of my latest loves - L.L.Bean's Insect Shield Repellent apparel for women, men and kids. Fashion that's practical is a wonderful thing.
Nobody likes getting bitten by insects, and right about this time, insects are out in full force. Bug spray/repellent is something that just becomes a staple in our car, our beach and diaper bag and in our home. The boys, my husband and I don't go outside without being properly and thoroughly covered (practically doused) with bug repellent.
L.L.Bean takes bug repellent to a whole new, different and better level. With Insect Shield apparel, I don't have to worry about rubbing/spraying everyone down anymore, and having the boys (and even my husband) complain about the smell and the "wet and greasy" factor. As a mother, I worry about my boys getting mosquito/tick/insect bites. Now, all I have to do is dress them (and me) right.
Invisible and odorless, L.L.Bean's Insect Shield Apparel will keep you covered and protected. As it states right on L.L.Bean's website: "Insect Shield apparel and gear products combine the patent-pending Insect Shield process with a proprietary formulation of the insect repellent Permethrin (*Permethrin has been successfully used in the United States as a US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered product since 1977, with an excellent safety record.) resulting in effective, odorless insect protection that lasts the expected lifetime of a garment." I especially love that the apparel is safe for my sons, and even safe enough for pregnant women to wear.
For moms, L.L.Bean offers Insect Shield apparel in classic short and long sleeve crewneck tees, short and long sleeve button down shirts, pants, shorts, socks and even bandanas. There are a variety of colors, ranging from your standard white to cranberry and spice. They are fabulous. You can have both your wardrobe and your family's outdoor safety, from head to toe, with Insect Shield Apparel.
It's practical fashion at its best, which is why L.L. Bean is my latest love.
