Lake George Here We Come

The weekend has arrived. This weekend is Memorial Day weekend which means my trip that I bought for myself and my boyfriend to Lake George. This was his graduation present because he deserves a little vacation and honestly so do I.

I started packing tonight when I got home from work and I picked out my outfit that I'm going to wear on the train up to Lake George. I wanted to keep it totally comfy but chic. Plus I haven't worn the hermes pants that I bought from H&M yet. Here is my comfy sailor inspired outfit that I will wear tomorrow:

Shirt: H&M
Pants: H&M
Necklace: American Eagle

I also can not wait to wear my new bathing suit from H&M. I think I'll cry if the beading comes off on this one trip!
Bathing Suit: H&M

Of course I have to bring a second bathing suit. I have so many that I had to try them all on to see which one I wanted to take. The extra one I decided on bring is so old. I had bought it the summer between freshman year and sophomore year of college I believe at a Kohls.

Of course I over packed. Especially compared to my boyfriend. Here is a look at both our suit cases.

I also realized since I will be gone for the weekend and won't get home till late Monday night I won't be able to do my new feature. I promise I will do it on Tuesday!!

I hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend!!!

Day to Night Looks

During the summer a lot of us buy new summer clothes and we always want to take advantage of our new summer looks. We want to be able to wear our clothes on different occasions, to be able to take our looks from day to night, from the beach to a night out on the town. Taken looks from day to night can be as easy as adding a blazer or switching jewlery for a fun night time look.
Tunics are a big summer buy. Tunics are easy to wear since they are one piece and easy to dress up or down. They are great to wear to the beach because all you have to do is take off one layer of clothes and its a easy cover up. For day time you can dress your tunic with a floppy straw hat, a straw beach bag, sandals, colorful accessories and a simple necklace. To take this look to night dress it up with some sandal heels, a clutch or a small purse, and dressy jewlery. Below I took Topshop's Vingtage Lace Tunic from day to night.

Shorts of course are the ultimate summer look. Shorts and tanks go together like peanut butter and jelly. But how about switching it up? Adding a crop top to shorts with accessories like sun glasses, flip flops, tote bag, studded earrings, and some bracelets make for the perfect look for doing some day time shopping. How about being daring and taking those shorts to a night time look? Add a sexy (but not to sexy top) with medium height heels, a chain purse, and some elegant jewlery. How about if those shorts are destroyed demin shorts? Belows look shows how you can take Forever21s Destroyed Demin Shorts from day to night.

Another ultimate summer look are summer dresses. This year the sailor look, is in so a lot of stripes and a lot of bright red and navy blue. You can take your stripe red dress from day to night easily. During the day you can have fun with it and play up to the sailor look, you can pair it anchor jewlery, navy accessories, sandals, and red sunglasses. For night, dress it up with a black blazer and some gold and black accessories. Throw on some red shoes and some red lipstick and you are red to go. This look is good for a dinner date, cocktails, or a girls night out. The look below take the Stripe Cross Back Dress by Rare found in Topshop from day to night by adding these little accessories.

Skirts are another summer must have. They are perfect for almost everything. They can be worn out to a picnic during the day then out at night for some fun. Skirts can be pair with tops like tank tops, short sleeves, and tube tops. Tutu skirts a lot of fun and can be done in different ways. You can go for the girly look or for a more funky look. For a night look why not pair a high waisted tutu skirt with a corest top. And why not that corset top be floral print, add some chunky jewlery and heeled clogs. For a simple day time look how about a simple white tank top some classy jewlery like a ring and a watch pair with flat peep toe shoes. I took Topshop's mesh sheet skirt from day to night below.

Changing up your looks from day to night will also help save you money on buying new outfits. Most of these sets individual pieces aren't over $100, so there is no need to break the bank. Stores like Topshop and Forever21 are perfect places to shop for those that are on a budget. Also, try some online places like is also a great place to shop and create your own looks online.
Summer is a lot about having fun so why not have fun with your looks this summer.

Steal the Look for Less:Taylor Swift

Pop country's princess, Taylor Swift, was seen in Alice + Olivia sequin top dress and Neil Lane jewelery at the Pop Awards in Beverly Hills.

This dress looks amazing on her. I love the sequins on it because its just the right amount of glam and the flow of the dress is perfect. Dresses with sequins aren't only perfect for New Years Eve but for a night out on the town, a wedding, or to a special event. Even for Prom, as I know Prom season has started.

You can pull this look off with a simple dress with sequin top piece and strappy heels. You don't even have to over accessories just a little gold bracelet and simple earrings, like Swift, and a clutch bag would pull the look together.


Sequin by poetofsorts featuring Iska dresses

Outfit from Left to Right: 1. Iska Sequin Top Babydoll Dress: $59 -; Black twist lock clutch bag: $36 -; Stefanie Cage Sandals: $21 - 2. Chiffon Baby Doll Dress with Sequin Bra clipped by salvsnena: $56 -; French Connection Black & White Raffia Clutch: $51 -; Guess Shoes Tailgate - Pewter Multi Texture: $85 - 3. Sequined Strapless Dress: $62 -; Vintage Bag with Small Chain: $79 -; Fergie Womens Joust Shoes (Gold Metallic): $89 -

For shoes and clutches you should stick with trying to match the sequin in the dress. If the dress has gold sequin match it with a gold bag and gold shoes, like in the 3rd look.

Another way to pull this look off you can wear a sequin tank top or tube top with a high wasited white skirt. The good thing with doing seperates is that you can pick the length or ruffles of the skirt or the color of the sequins you want.

Sequin Cami: $17 -; Coast Helio Linen Skirt: $93 -; 4. Intimately Free People Sequin Tank Top: $68 -; White broderie skirt: $33 -
Try on both separates and dresses and see what you like most. Also, try different neck lines. It's a fun look so you should feel fun and girly with whatever you decide. Don't forget the red lipstick! Red lips can definitely be a great last touch.

Shirt and skirt: H&M
Sandals: Forever21
Necklace: Betsy Johnson

I tapped into my wild side today and wore my leopard print shirt. Someone else tapped into their wild side too and wore a pink leopard print shirt with a black skirt (great minds think a like). I must say I always liked purple and leopard print. Whenever I wear this shirt I usually wear my purple cardigan, which stayed mostly in my bag and on the back of my chair today. Thank god it's hot out again! I mistakenly almost took 6am for 7am because the sun was so bright. I can't believe it's going to be 90 tomorrow! Two more days until I can really enjoy this weather!!! I can not wait for this weekend! Lake George here I come!!

Hope everyone is having a good week so far!

Inspirational Monday: Floral Bow Wedge Sandals from the Gap

NEW FEATURE! On Mondays I will now post some new clothing that inspires me or that I really love. The Feature will be called Inspirational Monday. It's good to get the inspired and the blood flowing on a Monday. Hope you all enjoy the new feature!

This Monday's Inspiration are these Design Editions floral bow wedge sandals from the Gap.

Design Editions floral bow wedge sandals $110

Aren't these wedges the cutest thing ever? I love the floral bow and that they are wedge sandals. They also look very comfy.

I was inspired by these shoes to create a set around them on Polyvore.

Gap Inspiration

Gap Inspiration by poetofsorts featuring GAP shoes

Set from left to right starting at the top: Design Editions floral bow wedge sandals: $110 -; Ribbed Modal Over-the-Knee Socks: $13 -; Va Va Bloom Dress: $55 -; Silk Cashmere Long Cardigan: $410 -; Nude Lace Tail Jacket: $57 -; Ankle Color Socks: $6.50 -; Fluxus Off White Deep V-Tank Top: $79 -; Eyelet Floral Shorts: $65 -; VANTIES Bracelet: $75 -; Wildfox Couture (Whitehorse) Wildfox Couture Ice Cream Mega Babe Tank: $86 -; High-waisted linen shorts: $1,205 -; ASOS Jersey Strands Bracelet With Metal Chain Detail: $25 -; Diane stretch-silk corset: $720 -; Gold Button Mini skirt: $60 -; ASOS Long Jersey Strands Necklace With Fine Metal Chain Detail: $19 -; Ribbed Modal Over-the-Knee Sock: $13 -

Wedges are great for summer. You can easily dress them up or dess them down. Wedges sandals can be worn with a pair of shorts or a skirt. Or you can even pair them with ankle lenght pants. They perfect for any occasion; a night out, to work or even a summer wedding. I especially love these for the bow. I think the bow gives the sandal a little flair. I'm also into the look now with ankle socks or knee high socks with sandals. I think these would be a perfect fit for socks paired with short shorts or a short skirt/dress. With these sandals I would stick with the brown/beige/cream, grey, and green colors but would also pair it with some floral accents.

What do you think of these sandals? How would you dress them?

Shirt and Jean leggings: H&M
Vest: Forever21
Necklace: borrowed from mom

TGIF! I'm so happy today is friday. I feel so sick and I def. didn't get a good night sleep since I took medicne before going to bed. I had such lucid dreams and I didn't get a decent sleep until around 4am then had to get up at 7 for work. I went through a whole box of tissues at work in 2 days! To say the lease my nose hurts.

At least tomorrow is Saturday and my big plans are staying in bed and watching The Wire on HBO demand. I haven't seen an episode of The Wire but I've been interested in watching it ever since I read the book The Lush Life. It sucks that HBO only has season 3 on. All well. If I wasn't sick I had plans on going to Forever21 since I still have a gift card from when I returned some clothes, I also wanted to stop by American Apparel and try on their one piece bathing suit. We'll see how I feel tomorrow, maybe I'll just go to American Apparel since it's all of one block from my parents.

Hope you all have some great plans for the weekend!! Enjoy!

Shirt and Belt: Charlotte Russe
Shorts: H&M
Necklace: My moms(hahaha!)
Sandals: Forever21
Bag: Shiraleigh from ByMe Boutique

I love being home because I steal stuff from my mom all the time. Well not steal....borrow :) I'm also obsessed with my bag. I bought it on Saturday and haven't stopped using it. ByMe Boutique is awesome, if you live in Brooklyn or in the City you should go stop by. They have such great unique clothing and accessories for prices that are pretty decent. I'm also very excited because my boyfriend bought me some links to fix my purse he bought me for my birthday. The links on the zipper broke quite a few times and finally it just gave up so I haven't been able to use it, which sucks because I know that he spent good money on it.

At least tomorrow is Friday! WOOHOO!! I hope you all are having a great week! :)

Steal the Look for Less: Sarah Jessica Parker

So in honor of the up coming release of Sex and the City 2 I decided to do Steal the Look for Less today on Sarah Jessica Parker.

I love Parker becasue of her style also how can you not love Carrie. The picture below (from is from the New York City Ballet Spring Gala. Parker is seen in: "an Elie Saab dress, L'Wren Scott jacket, and Alexander McQueen shoes, with a Leiber clutch and Fred Leighton jewels."

I love the stand out color of her shirt. Gives the outfit more of a pop. You to can get this look without going bankrupt.

Steal this Look Sarah Jessica Parker

Outfits from left to right: 1. Lace Panel Dress by Rare: $98 -; Midnight Blue Satin Bolero: $65 -; ASOS Multi Studd Leather Clutch: $37 -; Crackled Metallic Heels: $20 -; 2. Queen Anne's Lace Dress: $50 -; Satin Tie Belt Shirt: $12 -; French Connection Sequin Clutch Bag: $93 -; Blue Sequin Peep Toe Platforms: $58 -; 3. Blush and Bashful Dress: $100 -; Silence and Noise Satin Inset Cardigan: $20 -; ASOS Leather Oversized Bright Zig-Zag Sequin Clutch: $26 -; Nude Peep Toe High Courts: $58 -

You can steal this look by wearing a lace dress with a satin jacket over it, peep toe shoes, and a bright clutch bag. To change it up a bit you can do a satin cardigan or a satin button down t-shirt. For the clutch bag do something with a pattern, whether it is patch work, studds, or sequins. Stick with the peep toe shoes but you can change it up with a sequin peep toe or a satin peep toe. If you want to go for a bright color do something with silver or a metalic silver.

It's a great look for something formal like a wedding or something a little casual like a date or a night out at the ballet.
