To Whom It May Concern…..

Congrats to #135- Amy!! I will get in touch with you.

Dear DownEast Basics,

I love you.You have cute, fun, affordable, modest clothing and accessories.  You never disappoint.  I look forward to your catalog arriving in my mailbox.  I love searching the shop online.  I’m excited that you teamed up with Modbe for your swim lines.  Thanks for giving me the opportunity to review your amazing products. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

Thank you!

Dear California,
I love that while it is still raining and snowing across the country, it is bright and beautiful in sunny So Cal.  I can take a little drive to the beach and wear my new suit in the perfect weather.

This time I picked out a few things
from DownEast by Modbe to wear on the beach:

Modbe Knot Top

Banded Bikini in Sea Blue Dot and Set Sail Skirt in brown
Forever your girl,

FYI- readers (Google Reader) my feed is still messed up from my switch to WordPress.  If you followed me before January 2011, you are not getting my updated feed.  Please change it here: if you want to get the updates.

Much love,

P.s. If you don’t live in sunny CA, you can still stock up
on all the cute finds at DownEast.



Or if you don’t want to get into a bathing suit yet,
there’s lots to choose from!
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 follow your blog (especially now that I fixed the problem. I was wondering why you never showed up on my google reader anymore and yet you are still under ones I follow.)

  2. says

    Wow, this would be a tuff choice. I am loving the Sunset Swim Dress – Steel and the Santa Barbara Halter, or….I am totally loving the Mermaid Top–Flower Bee Sea Blue. All of their suits are darling.

  3. Heather says

    I LOVE the Sunset Swim dress in Cool Cabana with the Crystal Cove Cool Bikini in Cool Cabana!

    I wasn’t a DownEast Basics fan on fb, but I am now! Love their clothes…nice to see clothes that actually cover what should be kept covered!

  5. Jamie says
