Feel Feminine {plus a DownEast Basics Giveway!}

As mothers and especially as stay at home moms, we often tend to allow ourselves to "let go" of wearing "real" clothes. We  frump around in pajama bottoms or sweats or running pants and a t-shirt {or sweatshirt}.

We figure, "Hey, no one's gonna see me anyways." Or, "I just don't care."

But people do see us. In fact, they are the most important people in our lives. We find it necessary to gussy up for everyone except the ones we love most. Why is that?

I remember a time when I used to wear a gray t-shirt every.single.day. It was a different gray shirt everyday--but it was always gray. These were the type of shirts that were good to wear when cleaning toilets or dusting ceiling fans.

Now, I am far from materialistic, but there is something I have come to find.

If you dress frumpy, you will feel frumpy.

DownEast Basics offers the most feminine line of apparel I think I have ever come across. They are also a rather modest line. One of the most important aspects of their apparel being feminine is that it is modest.

In the picture above: I received this top last Fall and chose pink, because, well, I like pink. Last month they sent me this scarf and it goes real nicely with some of the shirts in my closet. It adds a wonderful touch to a simple shirt--or outfit. {Pssst...and it's on sale right now.}

And if that scarf is too frilly for you, there are others to choose from. Pick your style!
