Grown Up Wish List

This giveaway is now closed.

Remember just a bit ago when I hosted a giveaway for DownEast Basics? It was so much fun and I am still enjoying the products I reviewed. I’m sure my local friends would attest that I wear my jacket almost daily. I love it! Well, DownEast graciously sent me 2 products to review again. Apparently I didn’t learn my lesson last time and asked my husband to take pictures of me again.

So here are the products on me and on the models:

Timeless Trench Coat

Perfect Form Dress

Not sure what I’m doing in either picture. But these are the best of the bunch!

I wore the jacket to church today and it was SO comfy. I think it’s the perfect jacket- could go with a great pair of jeans or a dressy outfit. The dress I have reserved for the Sunday before Christmas. It’s super comfortable and even has pockets! It also has a fun ruffly neckline. Adorable!!
In addition to having clothing that is cute and comfy, their prices are amazing. And they have been fantastic to work with. I can’t say enough about this company- I am such a fan.

You didn’t think I’d just share some cute products with you and send you on your way did you?
DownEast Basics is again offering a giveaway. Woo Hoo!
