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, 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 ;-)


ODJ: Top from Marc by Marc Jacobs, Black pants from Anthropologie (brand: Leifnotes), Peep toe heels from Louboutin, Chanel J12 and Cartier Love bracelets.
