I haven’t written many of fashion/style posts in the past but I know “What I Wore” is a popular blog theme on Wednesdays. I thought today would be fun to talk about – What I Wore on TV!
I am definitely a casual girl- jeans and a t-shirt are my favorite look. Add cute shoes and a little sweater and I’m dressed up! 😉
When I was invited to be on The Morning Blend, I was told darker colors worked best on camera and to avoid small, tight patterns. I immediately picked out my current favorite shirt/cardigan combination. I found the blue and white striped shirt on clearance at DownEast Basics for $5 after Christmas, and I went “wild” and paired it with a DownEast Basics cardigan that has a cute floral detail on one side. Naturally I wore my favorite jeans, also from DownEast Basics. And guess where I found my cute flats?
Ha I fooled you! They aren’t from DownEast Basics, they’re actually Born flats from Dillards. 😉
I thought the outfit looked pretty cute. And thankfully the segment went well too!
Jeans – DownEast Basics
Top – DownEast Basics
Cardigan – DownEast Basics
Shoes – Born
Clearly I am a DownEast Basics fan. It’s hard to beat their adorable clothes at reasonable prices plus I regularly find super sweet deals when shopping their clearance.
When I was invited for a 2nd appearance, I said yes and then realized my next favorite top was actually the brown version of the shirt I wore on the first show. I really didn’t want to wear the “same” shirt on the next show.
Do you do that – Buy multiples of the same shirt when you love it?
Luckily for me, I was invited to a Spring Style Mixer at DownEast Basics the night before my appearance. Just in the nick of time I found another cute top to wear!
Jeans- DownEast Basics
Top – DownEast Basics
Sweater – Marshalls
I really love the detail on the shirt, sort of asymmetrical design that makes it interesting! It looked good with the black sweater I already owned but I am pretty sure I need this grey and white striped sweater too. How fun and fresh is this combo?!
So, did you like my two TV outfits?
I am already heading back this weekend to pick up a few other things that caught my eye at the mixer. I’m sure one of these fun green pieces will make it home with me!
You can see more of their sweet style by following DownEast Basics on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and their blog. Plus they’re holding a fun $500 Spring Style sweeps on Pinterest! Who wouldn’t love $500 to spend at DownEast! Woot!
Disclosure: DownEast Basics hosted the blogger event and provided a gift card to help with our purchases. I have worked with them in the past and continued to do so because I love their clothes!
