I’m finishing up this post as I watch “What Not to Wear” about a mommy blogger. Strange…

Sometimes I wish I would end up on that show, but only for the new wardrobe money – definitely not up for the hidden footage.

Anybody else LOVE that show?!

Anyways, here is what I wore this week and you can find much, much more at The Pleated Poppy today!

And now a little fun…

DownEast Basics is one of my FAVE online stores and the perfect go-to site for modest fashion ideas! They even have a great blog that is always sharing fashion tips and fun combinations!

So I was thrilled to pick an item from their new spring line to review! I picked the Blooming Beads Top in Twilight Mauve because it was unlike anything I had in my closet – and the hubby pointed it out in the catalog!

On Sunday, I wore it to church with a “new” GAP jean jacket I got at Goodwill for 99 CENTS, black pants and black boots.

I love how long the top is and the detail is gorgeous…

For a different look on Tuesday, I paired it with a new tan sheer cardigan from Target ($5 clearance again!) and dark jeans from Kohl’s.

This tee looks dressy and feels expensive but is also very comfortable!

There are so many beautiful new items over at DownEast Basics for spring right now, and because they are so wonderful, DownEast Basics is giving away one item of your choice from the new line to one reader!

So…just mosey on over to their New Arrivals page, pick your favorite item, and mosey back on over here to let me know what you love!
