Summer Fun Steal

One of my favorite things during the summer is BBQs and spending time outside with my friends and family. There's nothing like the smell of the grill mixed in with warm summer weather and the sound of laughter from your loved ones. I spent the last few days down at Cape Cod and there was plenty of that to go around. This outfit was just right for the occasion. And yes, those are sharks on my dress... perfect for those Cape beaches right!? 

{Dress, Shirt, Wedges: BCBGeneration (all c/o Chippmunk), Necklace: Francesca's Collection (old)}

Have you heard of Chippmunk? It's a online savings website where you can find coupons and promo codes to your favorite stores, all within your specified budget. No more scouring the web in hopes of finding a shopping code and then just having it not work when you use it. This site has it all for you. They have over 400 stores to get deals from including J.Crew, Forever 21, Nordstrom, Loft, and many more.

I was asked to create my own summery outfit using the deals I found through Chippmunk. I decided to get my entire outfit from one of my favorite brands, BCBGeneration. I went with a fun and light dress, which is always perfect for an outdoor BBQ, and some cute wedges. I figured since BBQs always go into the night, I need something to cover up a bit from the cooler air (and bugs of course), so I went with a light shirt, instead of the usual cardigan/jacket. Both the shirt and wedges were on clearance and I was able to get a discount on my entire order, plus free shipping. In the end I saved almost $100 on this outfit!

And now for the fun part! Submit your own summer fun outfit where you've gotten a great deal. 5 winners will each win a $100 gift card to the Chippmunk store of their choice! 3 of the winners will be chosen by community votes (so be sure to tell your friends to visit the site and vote for you), 1 winner will be chosen at random, and 1 will be chosen by me and the other Featured Bloggers! Super fun right?! You can also use Instagram and Twitter to show off your steal, just use hashtag #ChippmunkExpertShopper.

See an outfit you like on Chippmunk's Expert Shopper page? Pin it on Pinterest and you could be one of 4 to win a $50 gift certificate. Just use hashtag #SummerFun.

See you all on the Chippmunk site!

Chipmunk is news to me--it sounds like a great site. I've gotten very frustrated trying to find "deals" on-line...so I usually don;t bother. This sounds simple. I'll mention it to me wife.

That's a sharp dress, but for some reason I like it better with the shirt. Not sure why, it's pretty both ways.

Sounds like you had the perfect 4th weekend! I'm glad the family had a nice time.

Sarah said...

Very cute dress and wedges and I love how you paired the shirt over for taking the outfit into the night. That site sounds great, will have to check it out!
