Shaking Things Up in the South Side

On Wellesley & King, you see lots of dresses, ruffles, florals and lace, but in today’s post, we’re shaking things up. As much as I love my ladylike pieces, sometimes the only thing I’m willing to wear is a pair of jeans, my favorite sneakers, and a cotton t-shirt.  This weekend, for an impromptu trip to Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood, that was exactly the ensemble I needed.

I’m wearing the Madewell High-Rise Skinny Jeans that are currently on sale for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which sadly look to already be sold out. No worries though, you can still find a nearly identical style here, unfortunately you’ll have to pay full price (but save up all the Nordstrom notes you get during the sale and cash them in on a great pair of jeans!).

Along with my outfit, I’m also shaking up my post today and sharing a deeper look into this city of mine. I love Pittsburgh, and have a deep appreciation for its resilience. The food scene in this city is not to be underestimated and, with the mind behind Style412, neither is its fashion. It’s architecture represents that of the old steel town that it used to be, but there are so many neighborhoods being rebuilt: the South Side being just one example. I find that taking my camera with me on our weekend excursions allows me to appreciate this city even more, and I hope that you all can enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

For us, it was a weekend filled with rain, and with that, Arnie and I decided on some tacos (at Doce Taqueria, honestly amazing tacos if you’re from or ever visiting Pittsburgh) and a cookies & cream milkshake, before heading out to see The Big Sick at my favorite movie theater, The Manor Theater.
