DownEast Basics Review and Giveaway

Congrats to Amy #156! Thanks for entering everyone. xoxo

I’ve had the opportunity to work with DownEast Basics several times in the past. I feel fortunate to post about a clothing company that I love. DownEast’s clothes are comfortable, cute and very affordable. I always look forward to getting their catalog in the mail.

If only Angie were around to take fabulous pictures. ;)
For now, this one where Josh is making me laugh after a long day, will have to do.

This time around, I reviewed the May Flowers Dress. It’s a comfortable cotton maxi with a cross over bodice. All that translates to a flattering top and flowly bottom half. It’s springy and would make a great dress for Easter or Mother’s Day.

I also love these two items:

I own the dress from last season (different colors this time around) and I absolutely love it. It is super flattering and ridiculously comfortable. Perfect dress for travel too!

For today’s giveaway, DownEast Basics is offering
One item from the New Arrivals section, anything you want.
This giveaway is restricted to US residents only.

To enter: Leave one comment letting me know what one item will get you most in the mood for spring fashion. You can earn extra entries by doing any or all of the following (please leave a comment stating what you did).

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    I’d get the Frosted Flower Cardi in white…I just bought the Maui dress, and the cardi would be a nice little addition to it while it’s still a little chilly out!

    I love Down East too! Every season, they have the cutest cardigans, so I’d probably choose one of them!

    I love the bias stripe cardi, and the chic shirt dress. Both are adorable–though it is hard to narrow down my choices to even just two! Thanks for a fun giveaway to a great store.
