Summer Fun Steal with Chippmunk.com


As you ladies know, I recently submitted a steal I'd gotten at the Loft for Chippmunk's Expert Shopper Contest, well, thanks to you all I was one of the winners, and I have a $100 gift card coming my way!  So exciting!  Good news for you all, Chippmunk is hosting another expert shopper contest that you all can enter! 

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this contest, you can easily submit a look to Chippmunk's Expert Shopper Gallery is a place where community members express themselves by sharing steals and finding style inspiration based on a budget.

Here are the contest details: Submit a steal you got to Chippmunk starting today. The contest will run for two week's. There will be 5 winners who will each win a $100 gift card to the Chippmunk store of their choice.  3 winners will be determined by community votes, 1 editorially (by the other featured bloggers and myself), and 1 chosen at random.
 For those of you who love Instagram, you can also enter via Instagram using hashtag #chippmunkexpertshopper and mentioning where you shopped, how much you saved, and tips you have for others saving money too.

Also, for you non-blogger fashion-lovers, you can win too!  Just go to Chippmunk's Expert Shopper Gallery and pin your favorite steal using the hastags #summerfun #chippmunkExpertShoper and two winners will each win $50!

 In addition to winning the gift card I mentioned above, Chippmunk has generously given me $100 to create a summer fun steal of my own that I'll share with you today.  When looking around their site for coupons a few stuck out to me, like 20% off at Kohl's and free shipping for Loft.  I clicked Loft's link and found that they were having a huge sale with 50% off everything.  Score!  I looked around and found a number of great deals, thanks to Chippmunk's links. 

Since I'm a teacher I've had a pretty laid back summer style, and the few times I've gotten to dress up have been for Stella and Dot Truck shows.  I thought this look would be perfect for my next show and great for when I return to school in two weeks (eek!!!). I very rarely go out and buy a whole outfit at once, however, Chippmunk made it easy for me to hunt for deals (you know I love that!), and score a few pieces I've had on my wish list.  For example, this navy blazer is perfect!  I have a wool one, but this light-weight version will be so much for versatile for year-round.  I also love this blouse with it's embroidered details, I'll be able to wear it with everything!  I've also been drooling over this skirt for quite a while and seen it on multiple bloggers, I'm so happy to now have it.  Also, these wedges from Kohl's are fab!  I didn't have a nude summer shoes, so I'd been missing have a nude option, I think I might wear these everyday!
