Down East Basics ~ Spring Wardrobe Giveaway!!

http://www.downeastbasicsblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/downeast-catalog-21.jpg

If you read my blog often - you know that one of my favorite stores is Down East Basics. So when I was given the opportunity to review something from their spring line, I was excited! It was hard to choose what I wanted, however, I decided on the super cute Miss Slim Skinny Crop capris!




I always have the hardest time with capris, jeans, and shorts, fit wise. I am tall and slim, so they are usually to short, or to big in the waist. So I was a little bit nervous that these wouldn't fit me since I wasn't able to try them on before hand. However, I was super pleased when they arrived! They fit almost perfectly! I am especially happy with the quality, it sounds funny, but these capri's are so comfortable!

Capris are perfect for a Spring day - or even cool summer day - when the weather isn't hot, but isn't cool either. They are also perfect for when you need to look casual - but not to casual and its warm out. I wore these while I was volunteering at Applebees for a pancake breakfast event, where I was serving food. They were perfect!

Another great thing about Down East Basics is that it is so affordable! Usually, when you find clothes that are low prices, they are bad quality. However, Downeast Basics clothes are probably one of the best quality clothes that I have worn (I categorize them with stores like Anthropologie).

Here are a few other of my favorites from the Spring Line (click image to bring you to their pages):


This necklace is only $9.99!
