Monday Reading: Favorite Pittsburgh Blog Posts

Happy Monday, friends! There have been so many great posts by my fellow Pittsburgh bloggers lately, that today I wanted to share some of the awesome content they’ve been putting out.

Here is a rundown of my personal favorites that I think you’ll enjoy, too:


  1. Dining Room Makeover – The Surznick Common Room // I so admire Sarah and Nick’s blog. They put out the most high-quality content, and all of their posts just make you want to show up at their Pinterest-worthy home and have some beer and pizza. I first fell in love with their DIY record stand but, holy-moley, have they ever outdone themselves with this dining room. I mean, the whole house is so well done, you’ll be browsing their site for the rest of the day.
  2. Spring Awakening – Liz from Pittsburgh // This post is is one of my favorites for two reasons: (1) the insight and backstory that Liz shares is one that so many of us can relate to, as it can be scary to dress for yourself without caring about who may judge you for it, and (2) Sarah Collins’s amazing photography continues to inspire me every day. This is a two-for-one girl power post. I know you’ll enjoy this one.
  3. Burgh’erz – The Gingerbread Girl // Every time Lauren writes a blog post reviewing a dinner spot in the city, I have to go and try it (sometimes immediately). She has great taste in food, and her pictures are always drool-worthy!
  4. Gender Reveal Party – Yes, Wear That! // When I saw Kim’s adorable Gender Reveal Party, I couldn’t have been happier for her. It was the perfect mix of cute and casual–my kind of party. (Side note: we photographed her announcement pictures downtown. Isn’t she a beautiful little mama?)
  5. Sartorial Cognitive Dissonance – Mrs. Franzos // Meryl is an amazing writer, and I always love to read her posts. This one, however, really spoke to me. I feel like it’s an honest confession that we can all relate to. How many of us have ever bought an article of clothing for an event that you didn’t even have planned, but hoped that you someday would? A sweet post about figuring out your true self and dressing for who exactly that is.
  6. How to Accessorize a Black Midi Dress for Spring – Zoe With Love // Zoe has an uber feminine style, and I love that she’s featured a simple black dress, and made it work for springtime in Pittsburgh. It’s easy to think that spring attire should consist only of florals and pastels but, alas, Zoe has nailed an all black dress for sunny springtime weather.

I hope that you all are off to a great start to the week. Thank you so much for stopping in to read!
