Hello everyone – special edition of What I Wore Wednesday (yes, with a giveaway!)- I want to tell you about DownEast Basics. If I had to pick one clothing store to shop at, it would be the one. I think the majority of my clothing comes from them or a garage sale. Their clothes are cute and stylish, but yet still affordable and modest. I’ve said it before, but I want to reiterate – I love DownEast Basics!
I don’t even live by one – I just shop them online. And love getting their catalog in the mail.
Anyways, have you see the new arrivals? I have a few they sent me to showcase for you. I like being able to see clothes on real people instead of models, so I hope that’s helpful for you too.
First up, this Color Spectrum Top – it is a little out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to push myself a little. And it turns out I really like it – the material is soft and light-weight and has the right amount of flow.
Can you spot the spraypaint on my fingers?!?
Next up, the Sweet Thing Cardi and Fundamentals Skirt – I love that you can mix and match items from their line that don’t coordinate but still go together like these two. I think it’s a great color scheme for fall. The top is lightweight and adds a great pop of color, and the skirt was super comfy and even has pockets. I got several compliments on this outfit when I wore it to church:
And I think the two items can be stand-alone as well. Here’s the skirt paired with a plain white shirt (also DownEast, I bought last season) and the cardigan with jeans:
And just a quick look-back, I bought myself this Something Treasured Skirt and top a few weeks ago – the skirt is still in the new arrivals – I love it and the detailed ruching on the side.
