summer fun with chippmunk

banana republic striped ponte skirt, gap round belt, everlane white tee, banana republic ashley flats, apple of my eye jewelry
I'm thrilled that I was asked to be a Chippmunk's Expert Shopper - you guys know I'm all about their expert shopper competitions and coupon codes, so it's a great fit for both of us! I was provided with $100 to put together an outfit for a summer - read all about my steals below!

To put together a fun summer outfit on a budget, I used Chippmunk to see what great deals I could find for purchases under $100. Banana Republic was running a 40% off everything sale, and as I love their quality of clothing, I was sold! I found this adorable ponte knit skirt that was on sale for $69, plus the additional 40% off coupon found on Chippmunk brought it down to $42. It's great for hanging out with friends in the summer grilling or maybe down by the lake, but can also be dressed up for school or work. The shape is flattering, the colors are perfect for summer, and the price was right! The flats are an item I've had my eye on for months, and I used the 40% off coupon to bring them down to $60 - they are real leather, are one of my closet colors, and will definitely be a staple. 

Are you interested in participating in the current Chippmunk Expert Shopper Contest? It's super easy, and if you win, you could win up to $100! Anything to get a little bit more out of your budget.
