DownEast is a great company that has cute, affordable, chic clothing for girls and women - tops, sweaters, dresses, denim, skirts, accessories and more. They have stores in UT, ID, NV,AZ, and WA, but don't fret if you aren't located in one of these states, because you can also shop online!

I had never tried any of the items from DownEast Basics, but I have always admired their apparel online. I first noticed their products on another blog that I follow and loved the fresh, youthful, colorful pieces, so I was thrilled when I was contacted about reviewing a piece from their new Spring line...their Fresh Flowers Maxi Dress. It's a long bright pink dress (pictured below), that is super comfy and flowy, and perfect for a warm spring or summer day!


Some of the other items that I was drooling over online were:

Oceanfront Dress $34.99
Intuition Top
$22.99
Trendsetter Tote
$25.99
Tuxedo Top
From $12.99 to $19.99

WIN IT: One of my readers will have a chance to win their item of choice from this selection: http://www.downeastbasics.com/newarrivals.aspx)

  108. As a woman of 26, it's really hard for me to find clothes that fit my age, I feel...I'm too old for the things I find in the teeny bopper section and too young for a lot of things in the women's department, DownEast Basics seem like they make clothes that are age appropriate for me. I love the Suncatcher Top, it looks perfect to pair with jeans and cute sandals for a walk on the beach or to go out to lunch in. I'm also a fan of their Romantic Rope Tote...it would probably pair perfectly with the top!
    Thanks for the chance to win :)
