DownEast Basics Summer Outfits and Blogger Event

My favorite display in the store. I purchased the skirt shown.

Last week I was able to attend a great blogger mixer thanks to an invite from another local blogger. The DownEast Basics Blogger Event happen to be on my birthday! So cool to be able to meet some great local bloggers and shop all on my bday. We had just left an outdoor festival and planned to go to the mall to do a little birthday shopping so it was a perfect plan. The sales gals were super sweet. They had gift bags, cookies and drinks for us. My plan was to bring my mother in law but she was not feeling up to it (she has Lupus) so I brought my husband and son with me. My husband is actually fun to shop with. He tends to pick out stuff I would not think to buy, he tries to get me out of my little fashion box I tend to stick to.

Turning 31 I feel like my 30s needs to be more fashionable. Less dressing like a tshirt and jeans gal and onto the skirts and colorful tops. DownEast Basics is the perfect place to start that. They have comfy clothing that is cute, stylish and colorful. The great thing is they have sizes XXS to XXL which means you can go shopping for just about anyone in the store. I can even shop with my skinny sisters there LOL.

Super cute display with the gold frame

I purchased the Orange Flower Afternoon Picnic Skirt with my blogger gift card, THANKS DownEast Basics! I also found a white shirt for $5! I looked for an orange top like the one I made on my Pinterest Board but did not find on the fit right on my top. The tshirts are a comfy fit though. I was also looking for a Yellow Subtle Nuances Skirt that I saw on the DownEast Basics website, it was not in stock but they sales gal was nice enough to add me to the list to give me a call when it was in stock. I am loving yellows and oranges for the summer and I think will be great into the fall.

I will be back to DownEast Basics for my yellow skirt when its in stock and hopefully will have the chance to work with DownEast Basics more in the future. You can shop in stores or online for great prices. They are having a $25 and under sale on fashion tops / sweaters and a denim sale of up to 40% off.

*This is a personal post, I was not paid for this post but was provided a gift bag from DownEast Basics for the event.
