DownEast Basics Review & Give-a-way...


Have you guys ever heard of the clothing store DownEast Basics? Well if you haven't then let me introduce you to them!

DownEast Basics clothing line features smart layering pieces and wardrobe enhancing garments so you can embrace the American classic look with your own sense of style! Their clothing pieces are so girly and feminine to me, with lots of colors, ruffles and just plain pretty items!


I got to choose a piece of clothing from their New Arrivals section and let me tell you it wasn't an easy choice because everything is just so cute! I decided to get the Frosted Flowers Cardigan ($34.99) in Black! This cardigan is adorable and I am so glad that I chose it! It is a 12-gauge knit cotton sweater that features 3/4 sleeves and has applique flower detailing all over the front of it. It looks almost like ruffles all over the front and is so pretty!


It comes in 5 different colors like hot pink, cherry pie, green grape, white and the black that I chose. I LOVED all of the colors but chose the basic black because I knew I could pair it with almost anything underneath and could dress this up or down and get a lot of use out of it. I love how light weight it is, it's perfect for all seasons! I can throw it over a tank top when it gets cool on these summer nights and I know it will be a favorite come fall and winter as well!

DownEast Basics has so many things like Tee's & Cami's, Tops, Sweaters, Skirts, Dresses, Special Occasion Items, Denim, Swim, Accessories, and they even offer little Girls clothing which is adorable!

Here are a few of my favorite things...

How adorable is this Pearl & Hot Pink Flower Necklace $9.99.. I love it!

Oh if only I had a little girl...I would soooo get her this matching Mini Frosted Flowers Cardigan ($24.99) Seriously how cute would that be!
