Wearing: These are two photos from the late in late July. I love wearing all-white and continue to do so even in the wintertime. This is a great and easy outfit for the last few summer days. I also wear the sweater with dark jeans in early fall and continue to wear the white shorts throughout September!
Wearing II: This is what I wore out on Saturday night. I had some friends over for cocktails, then we headed to Station for dinner, and then to the bars in Shadyside. It was so hot, so minimal clothing was definitely necessary! This skirt is on major sale and these gray bow sandals (heeled) are so comfortable and beyond cute!
Drinking: I can't remember if I have ever suggested this bottle of wine, but it is Joel Gott cabernet sauvignon 2013. It's in most state stores and runs around $15ish a bottle. It is SO good for the price. It can really hold its own against $50/$60 bottles! I definitely recommend it!
Wanting: Not a whole lot on my list this week, just some random items!
Watching: I just watched The American President. It's free if you have Amazon Prime. I love a good late '80's/early '90s movie and this is a great one. It's a drama/romance and stars Michael Douglas and Annette Bening. It's basically a love story of the president dating/falling in love (his wife had died while in office)... I won't say any more, watch for yourself!
Watching III: Should I rename this post 'Watching'? I've just seen some really great stuff around the internet this week! This ad by Under Armor is amazing. I not only think the message is powerful, but the cinematography is beautifully shot. It just goes to show how inspiring an ad can be without shoving the brand's logo in the audience's face.
Pittsburgh-ing: This weekend I went to a new-to-me restaurant, Station. It is located right on Liberty Avenue in Bloomfield. It has a really cool pub-style atmosphere with large bar area and then a separate dining area. Slightly hipster, slightly industrial, but overall a really cozy, cool atmosphere. A full bar with plenty of unique, craft cocktails to choose from, too. I just had a gin and tonic which was perfectly good. I got the burger, which was a 'safe' choice for me, but my goodness was this a great burger. It was topped with asiago fondue, an onion ring, cooked to perfection beef, and then also had an onion jam. So, so good. The fries were perfect and came with a side of aioli that tasted like mustard seed and mayo. Yum. Definitely a great spot worth checking out if you are in Pittsburgh!
Recommending: Sorry for the terrible photo/no makeup pic, but I just had to include this because it's too good not to. These skinny jeans are from Old Navy and were on sale for just $15. They have a ton of other washes and fits and the fit on every pair I tried are incredible. I swear by a certain style of True Religion jeans, but they run around $200. These $15 jeans are totally comparable to my favorite $200 jeans. I definitely recommend them. I'll be styling a different pair in a blog post coming up in a few weeks, so keep an eye out for that! They run big. I typically wear a 27 in almost all denim, which equates to a size 4, but wear a size 2 in all of their jeans!
