Recently I was invited to a fall style mixer with other local bloggers at Downeast Basics. I was thrilled to be invited as I have been shopping at Downeast since 2005. The store was crowded with fun clothes for fall, good clearance on summer fashions and lots of bloggers.

I was able to score a denim pencil skirt on sale for $15.00. Dark denim skirts really transcend seasons, they can be worn with sweaters and tights or linen shirts and flip-flops. I have one from Downeast Basics already that I wear at least weekly if not more. They are about knee-length so perfect for church or work and can be dressed up or down.

I also got another maxi. I have three now, all with a print. This one is so pretty, it has an Aztec print and it comes in 2 color schemes, blue or red. Originally I went into the mixer aiming for red but after looking at the blue, i realized I own more tops that are better suited to that.

The blue version also seems to have more of the fall 2013 Pantone colors.

Here are this fall’s colors! (Yay for gray..I have a crush on gray, it is a redhead’s black!)

I took a friend who got the cutest apple shirt! It is dark forest green and blush! Blush seems to be up and coming! All and all it was a fun mixer! I shyly met some new local bloggers and look forward to wearing my new fall fashions!
