Emerson Fry Mod Dress

This is not what I bought over the weekend, but I got this few months back so I thought I post it. I just LOVE this dress from Emersonmade (now Emerson Fry). I know it's simple, but seriously I cannot find this anywhere else. The length is perfect as I'm not even that tall (5'4) and oh..it has pockets too. By the way I had to wear cami with this dress because the hooks keep unhooked itself in the process and many times revealead my bra and that's not very classy hehe.

I didn't put any accessories with the dress when I took the the pic, but normally I will wear long necklaces and it looked so good too. And now I wish I have a bright red heels ;-)

Post Mother Day's Shopping

I hope you had a great Mother's Day celebration yesterday. It was my second Mother's day and instead of presents, I asked my DH to let me go shopping on my own, yes alone, without kids!

I stopped by at NM hoping to see something I like from their current sale, but unfortunately nothing (and it's probably a good thing for my wallet).
I bought a couple of things from Madewell, J. Crew, Zara and Anthropologie so over the next week I will wear the new items, take pics and post it on my blog.

Today I'm wearing one of the item that I bought. I was looking for black pants that can go casual and dressy at the same time. When I saw this online at Anthropologie.com, I did not see the appeal at all. When I saw it in person, again, I wasn't too impressed but I picked up my size anyway and headed to the fitting rooms. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried this on. Not only it is the type of pants that I'm looking for (pleated and pull on type), the material is light and fully lined, perfect for all seasons. The pants goes well with heels, flats, cute blazers, flowy tops even business shirt. Too bad it's not on sale haha, but I'm buying whether it's on sale or not ;-)

Yellow Much

I'm wearing another yellow today at work. Today is Teacher Appreciation Day too, so I'm getting a dozen of cupcakes later today and will bring them over for the boys' teachers at lunch time. Yes, I'm not that creative when it comes to ideas what to make for days like this and I have nobody to blame but myself.

I didn't realize by putting kids to daycare/school, you will need a new skill set, that for one, you need to be prepare when they say that "hey, Valentine's day is coming up, kids are encouraged to swap Valentine's day card", the day won't be about swapping cards. In fact, last Valentine's day other [parents] prepared home made heart shaped cookies to be given out, gifts, self-made greeting cards, and I stupidly enough only brought 2 cards [read: that I bought] from Sanford and Winston. HECK how am I suppose to know to bring cards for the whole class- and gifts??! So I know I won't be creative today and I don't want to give personalized gift to every single teachers because I WILL skip one by accident. So you know what, I'll buy something that they can share.

In my defense, at least the card will be made of their picture and I hand-written the message and at least I look bright and happy in yellow :-D

Yellow Friday

This week has been the longest week EVER! I had to drag myself from bed and I surely can do another hour or two extra sleep. Office drama all week, I'm now over it. I'm ready for Friday, ready for the weekend. I'm extra casual today and I throw in some yellow too to cheer my mood.

Fendi Jelly Flat Sandals

I took advantage of the gift card event at Neiman Marcus recently and one of the item that I bought is this Fendi Jelly Flat Sandals. When I bought shoes/sandals I tend to choose more neutral colors so when I saw this sandals in NM catalog (in bright yellow/red/blue combo), I wasn't sure if I can pull them off. I went online and found they have this white/red/black combo instead so I decided to get it.

They are very comfy and cute at the same time, love it so far!
