Victoria Day Shopping Haul

It is usually hard to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend.  And in my case, I was greeted to a pile of marking and a multitude of problems on Tuesday morning.  So I couldn't be happier that it's already Friday, thank goodness for the short week!

If you've been following me on instagram (@amy_lovinglately)  then you already know I spent my weekend cross border shopping.  Here's what's inside the bag:
Ann Taylor Skirt, Hollister Plaid Shirt, and Banana Republic Dress.

H&M Blazer and Sleeveless Shirtdress

Total Retail Value for all 5 items: $259.38
What I paid: $92.34
That's a total savings of ~64%! Not to0 shabby :)

I was super excited to find that sleeveless shirtdress in my size.  I have wanted it ever since Jean and Elle posted about it but unfortunately I don't have an H&M in my city.  And it was a bonus that H&M had this coupon for 35% off one item :)  The rest of the items (skirt, blazer & shirt)  were great basics  that I was lacking and the other dress is perfect for summer weddings that I'll be attending!

You might have noticed that none of the items are from LOFT despite the logo on the bag, that's because I couldn't find anything in my size.  However there were some great deals at the LOFT outlet (extra 30%) that my mom and sister picked up.

I also posted this pic about some $0.30 deals at target.  I'm always on the lookout for clearance sections and target always has some great deals at the front of the stores.  

Have a great long weekend my American friends, now it's your turn :)

Loving Long Weekend Shopping Lately,


  1. great combinations and new proposals

  2. Good finds! I really like the H&M blazer and the pattern of the dress is so pretty. The nearest H&M store is a 5-hour flight away from me :( Total bummer since I really like their stuff.
