It’s a great time of year. The first day of summer was one week ago, and that means it’s finally warm enough to wear those cute crop tops, shorts & sundresses. The beginning of summer also means that the autumn styles are making their debut and it’s time to clear the racks of this seasons top picks that came out in February (when it was still snowing in half the country)!
Banana Republic is on the endless list of stores that has almost everything on sale, plus 40% off the sale price, plus and additional 10% off when you use your Gap/Banana Republic Card!! I was looking for some versatile traveling outfits that are easy to pack but still stylish (and to keep me cool while I try to endure the heat of the south for a few days). I ended up finding this incredibly comfortable romper which started at $110.
I picked it up for the sale price of $40.99… plus 40% off, with an additional 10% off since I used my Gap Card. $22.13 (total discount of 80% off)!
Since no outfit is complete without accessories, I paired the romper with this Marc by Marc Jacobs leather cross-body bag that caught my eye in Saks Off-Fifth. I knew it would go with almost any outfit – and what could be more perfect when you don’t have room in your luggage for 5 different purses to match everything. It was marked down, PLUS an additional 50% off the sale price.
The purse started off at $328, but was marked down to $233.99, and then kicked further down to $116.99 when taking off the additional 50% off. At a total of 64% off, it wasn’t the best deal I’ve ever snagged, but definitely worth it for the quality and functionality!
So to put it all together I added some timeless Ray-Bans and had an easy-breezy outfit perfect for my journey! Mind the wrinkles… this photo was taken after a 6 hour car ride and a trolley tour in 95degree heat, yikes!
‘Till next time, stay stylish, and cool 🙂
