What I Wore - DownEast Basics Giveaway!

Are you as ready for Spring as I am?

I'm teaming up with DownEast Basics today and am so excited.
Their new spring arrivals are so pretty.
I had the opportunity to pick ANY item from their new arrivals
and boy was it hard to choose!

I finally decided on the Mini Bouquet Cardi in a pretty mint green color.
I'm always a sucker for a cute cardigan.
And, while my usual color choice is grey, I thought I'd step out of my comfort zone and go with a pretty pastel. The embroidered flowers have the pop of color that I so love.
That little bit of teal in there sealed the deal for me.


For this week's What I Wore...here is the cardigan two different ways!
Lucky for me, it has been sunny this past week, really getting me in the mood for Spring.

Sunday - Dressy

I thought I'd try out what I might wear on Easter!


Mini Bouquet Cardi - DownEast Basics
Cami - DownEast Basics
Grey Taffeta Skirt - Made myself
Grey Ruffled Heels - Target


Tuesday - Running Errands Casual
Same Cardigan - DownEast Basics
White Blouse - Local Boutique
Jeans - Standard & Practice Jeggings Nordstrom
Brown Boots - Nine West Outlet
Grey Dahlia Earrings - My FVK Shop

Even the back of the cardigan has sweet embroidery details too.
Love that!

The sweetest part of teaming up with DownEast Basics
is their generous giveaway I get to offer to you, my dear readers!

You know how I got to pick ANY item from their new arrivals?
Well, they are offering one of my readers the same opportunity!

Good Luck! Thanks, DownEast Basics.

P.S. I'm linking up with the stylish Lindsey and am also a guest blogger on Allora Handmade today....chatting about my fashion/shopping tips!

P.S.S. A note on sizing! I usually wear an XL for DownEast Basics tops and dresses but I like my cardi's to fit a little snug. I got this one in a Large. It fits good, but is a little roomy. Possibly could have even gone with a Medium.
