One of my favorite things about Pittsburgh is all of its local pubs and eateries. I'm not talking the big chains that I have been known to frequent such as Houlihan's or Primanti's (though the latter is a total staple of the 'Burgh) but the smaller places ranging from The Library, The Micro Diner, and my favorite little place, Hollywood Cafe, which I talked about in yesterday's post.
Well, the little pub I enjoyed lunch at today is no different and is right in the heart of Pittsburgh's North Shore, across the street from PNC Park. This gem, is called The Local Brewhouse, and it is also affiliated with one of the 'Burgh's other popular restaurants, Local. And I have to say, this little joint will be somewhere I will be frequenting because not only is it just a short walk across the bridge from my college, Point Park University, it is also only one block away from my favorite spot in Pittsburgh: The Andy Warhol Museum.
Enjoy A Pint
As I said earlier, after a very busy morning of running errands and photographing for my internship with CollegeFashionista, I actually had a leisurely afternoon ahead of me. So since it is Friday after all (TGIF!) I decided to just kick back and enjoy my lazy afternoon, and stopped by this cozy little bar for a pint and some food. (The Greek salad I had was delicious by the way!)
For my day out and about downtown, I decided to wear one of my very versatile pieces, but style it for a more casual look. I'm sure many of you are thinking "Gee that sweater and belt look awfully familiar." and that's because they are! You see, the sweater is actually the top half of a dress that I received from my sponsor StyleWe earlier this year, and have since styled the top and bottom together as well as separately on a few occasions! Much like I said in the original post, the reason why I love this dress is because it truly is a piece that just keeps on giving.
To style this chic but casual outfit, I decided to stay true to the top's kicked back style and simply style it with some dark blue skinnies that I got from my sponsor, SheIn, topped off with my trusty knee high boots. The reason why I made these simple style choices, is because for one, it was a bit chilly out today and I did want to keep warm, but also because I love how effortless, yet put together this outfit looks. I also have to say, that these jeans from SheIn are giving my favorite Levi's a run for their money, because they are so comfortable.
To put the finishing touches to this outfit, I decided to pair this sweater with a basic white blouse. (Okay, it's actually this blouse, so it's not quite plain, but hey it works!). The reason why I chose to layer the sweater with this blouse is because I like the bit of contrast it adds to the sweater and adds some extra polish to the piece. Then to further style this look, I chose to pair this ensemble with my Jenny Bird Flagstaff Earrings, compliments of Rocksbox.
