My mom came to celebrate Mother's Day in NYC last Sunday, and I decided to wear a festive blue maxi skirt and Topshop kimono blouse for the occasion. I had unearthed both items at a church flea market earlier that weekend, for what amounted to $4.50 each. I love shopping at church rummage sales and fleas, though many people are turned off by the thought of shopping in a church basement or gym. But what these sales may lack in staging and signage, they definitely make up for in terms of hidden treasures. The flea market I stumbled across was held on Saturday at the Immaculate Conception Church in the East Village, and along with clothing, there were plenty of shoes, jewelry and even homemade hot sauce for sale.

I paired the skirt and blouse with the same belt from last week's 'fit ($6, NY&Co.), bringing my outfit to $15. I wore my comfy Payless wedges ($20) again too, bringing the head-to-toe to $35.

After taking some photos in Williamsburg, my mom and I headed to Flushing, where we celebrated Mother's Day with some delicious Korean food at Sik Gaek. We enjoyed a bubbling seafood stew, short ribs and fried rice. Yum!
