my outfit: down east basics! (sponsored post)

Down East Basics sent over the adorable 'Beach Babe' dress recently and I am so excited to finally show it off here on the blog... I've been waiting for the perfect sunny and warm day and this was it!

I never used to like wearing dresses... in fact I only have a handful in my closet, but this summer the tides have definitely turned. Dresses like this one are so perfect for summer, especially because they are so easy to throw on and need minimal thought! Here I just paired it with some gold bangles and sandals and voila! I felt instantly feminine and pulled together in moments.

Down East Basics is an online retailer (they also have store-fronts as well... just not near me) that has an amazing selection of women's (and even some children's) clothing at really great prices. This dress was listed as only $32.99. What a steal!

The also have an amazing selection of jewelry and accessories. I particularly loved their selection of bold necklaces (you know how much I love a bold necklace these days!) - and they are again, all at really reasonable prices.

But back to the dress... it is comfy and soft and I just love the crochet detailing at the front. Isn't is sweet?

Thank you Down East Basics... and you should head over there now to check out their awesome selection of clothing and accessories!

loved the dress so much - went to buy it, and saw they are out of that color. boo. and then i loved many other things too - with nothing in my size. boo again. Is this common for this site? I've not looked at it before, but have added it to my favs. will keep scouting for smaller sizes :)

Jo, What a bummer! Keep the site in mind for the future, they may re-stock, otherwise they have great dresses and accessories!
