last weekend was a great one, and this one is bound to be even better. when anthony got into town on friday, we had an extremely picturesque pittsburgh day. the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and we spent the entire day outdoors exploring the city. i've been so busy on campus the past few weeks with school and work, i realized i haven't ventured outside of my little downtown bubble where my school is. it was nice to get off campus and enjoy some of my favorite things pittsburgh has to offer.
pittsburgh is famous for having the most bridges out of any city in the entire world. it has 446. crazy, right?! the bridges downtown are this cool yellow color dubbed "alohmon," a phrase combining the names of the three rivers that intersect downtown at point state park: allegheny, ohio, and monongahela. just a little pittsburgh history lesson in case you're interested. ha! this city is so dang awesome i can't even handle it sometimes.
our first on the list of things to do was ice cream. because i clearly have an obsession with candy and sweets and pretty much all different kinds of food in general. we went to dream cream ice cream which is one of the best spots downtown. it's a little ice cream parlor that allows people with "dreams" to choose a fun flavor, and everytime that flavor is sold they give a portion of the sales to their cause! i got a cup of "fools gold" and helped support a girl who is running a marathon to benefit the leukemia & lymphoma society. like i needed more of a reason to eat ice cream! ;)
this shirt is my first time venturing into the world of peplum, and i must say: i love it! i got it at forever 21 a few weeks ago for suuuuper cheap. it's so simple and comfy. but makes me feel like i look a little more dressed up. i paired it with my fave gray skinnies and my brand new boots. i got these babies on amazon for 30$. i also have a prime account, so all i had to do was click "purchase" and two days later they were at my door! man, i love the internet. i've been doing A LOT of online shopping lately. hehe.
the next part of our adventure was visiting the andy warhol museum. andy warhol was from pittsburgh, and it's the largest museum in the world featuring a single artist! this place is so cool. andy warhol was super unique and creative and the museum does a kick ass job at displaying that. i've included some of my favorite pieces in this post so you could see.
i would seriously love to decorate my house with warhol as inspiration. it's so bright and colorful. each floor had a different colored wall. and these skull paintings were my ultimate favorite. what are some of your favorite museums? pittsburgh has so many cool ones within walking distance. and with my school id i get free entry! sweeeeet.
spending the day out and about doing some of my favorite pittsburgh things made me fall in love with this city all over again. living in baltimore this summer was great, but i'm happy to be back in pittsburgh, the first big city i ever lived in, as well as my first home away from home. even though i don't plan on living here forever, pittsburgh will always hold a special place in my heart.
this coming weekend is going to be filled with wedding fun! i'm excited. as usual, thanks for reading.
