Downeast Basics GIVEAWAY

• 07 May 2009



































With Mother's Day just a few days away, it seemed appropriate to offer a fun giveaway to all of you lovely ladies. Whether you are a mother, a soon-to-be-mother, a good friend to a mother, or a fabulous auntie, you will certainly find a lot to love for yourself or for someone you care about. This week you have the opportunity to win a $50 gift card to Downeast Basics--a hip, casual clothing company offering everything from cute swimwear to modern skirts. You'll find everything at DB to be fresh, colorful, and comfortable.

If you're familiar with Downeast Basics, you probably have your own favorites already. If you are new to DB, you may be interested in a little introduction. Let me share with you a few of the pieces I love:

Santa Monica Swimsuit...a classic suit you'll find yourself wanting to wear year after year. It'll never go out of style thanks to it's timeless appeal, and flattering lines. I'm typically a J.Crew girl when it comes to suits, but I find myself preferring this suit over my usual fare.

Shoreside Dress...a simple, soft dress that can go casual or dressy, depending on the accessories you pair with it. The satin sash adds just the right amount of "girly".

Winward Skirt...a bold, modern print I'm in love with right now. There is nothing better than a crisp, navy piece in the Spring, especially if its teamed with a kelly green or canary yellow top.

Seersucker Susie Skirt (for little gals)...I'm always a sucker for seersucker :) When it's paired with ric rac I'm over the edge. Does a little girls skirt get any cuter? The simplicity of the combination makes this a DB favorite to be sure.

Okay, now it's time for you to discover your own favorites! What will you pick I wonder...

p.s. if you have a bun in the oven and don't want to miss out on all the giveaway fun, you'll be thrilled to know they have a petite maternity collection too...$50 at Downeast Basics will allow you to build up your collection of basics quite nicely!
