I had a great afternoon.
I hung out with some great bloggers (and an awesome photographer), and was able to shop for some fun Blissdom outfits at a local boutique!
DownEast Basics is a national chain of boutiques (boutique clothing, definitely not boutique prices) as well as an online store.
DownEast Basics is also my Blissdom clothing sponsor :)
Karen, Nicole, and I were met at the store by some amazing employees that asked us a few questions about our preferences, walked through the store asking us to “yay” or “nay” pieces, and then sticking us in a fitting room with a wonderfully overwhelming amount of clothing.
Of course I have photos for you!
No, we didn’t get swimsuits for Blissdom, but I’m definitely heading to DownEast to get my swimsuit this year. They just launched their collection, and I love the colors and prints!
Another thing I love?
Their swimsuits have fabric! They’re not teeny tiny!
It was pretty hard to walk past the swimsuits and focus on conference outfits…
They have a huge clearance section right now where I found a million great pieces… FYI :)
Nicole found some great jeans and comfy cardigan. I *almost* got the same one in pink.
I may have to go back…
I love the colors they have right now…
The most fun about today was that we tried on some things that we never would have picked up. The ladies who helped us were so helpful and great about grabbing accessories for us to try with our outfits.
Karen stepped out of her comfort zone a little and got a pair of skinny jeans!
After about 2 hours (we had so much fun!), we had all that we needed for our Blissdom conference sessions! Everyone was so helpful with matching up outfits and accessories, the store was spotless and spacious, and the selection was awesome. Do you know that if you “like” DownEast Basics on facebook, you can get word of a deal every Tuesday?
Mom is you’re dying to see what we picked out for Blissdom… but you’ll have to wait. We’ll be taking photos of our outfits while we’re in Nashville, so watch for them! We leave in 2 weeks!
Thank you, ladies of DownEast! We will be back soon!The tiny print: DownEast Basics is our clothing sponsor for Blissdom, which means that this blog post was written in exchange for conference clothing. We wouldn’t have agreed to work with DownEast if we didn’t already love them and their clothing, so rest assured that all opinions here are 100% factual. — We are the luckiest girls in the world because our Blissdom sponsors are DownEast Basics and Angie’s Kettle Corn.
