Steeling my Heart

Hi there everyone!

I'm so excited to share with you my first outfit post officially living in Pittsburgh! It is so weird looking back at the pictures from a couple years ago when I was first in the city for a blogger meet up - where I made some amazing friends! Now, I live here - crazy! 

Kuchanda took these pictures for me the other week - this awesome abandoned crane was near a shop where he was getting his car checked out. It was so cool, but neither of us didn't have our cameras with so, he just took them with my new iPhone! I had a 4 before, so upgrading to a 6s was a big change! I will still take outfit photos with our DSLRs, but it is nice to have an option for spontaneous photo shoots! 

Anyway, Pittsburgh has been pretty great - I'm not getting out as much as I would like during the week, due to lack of transportation, but my sweets and I have been going out for ice cream, thrifting, and other fun things in the evening and during the weekend! 

So, I wore this outfit to a job interview! I didn't end up taking this job because it wasn't full time hours, but it was still a good interview, you know? Anyway, I'm starting a job in a couple weekends and I'm pretty excited about it - I'm not good at just sitting at home. Although, I have gotten through a lot of episodes of Bones! 

Anyway, I have to go and make a reservation at Mad Mex - Kuchanda and I are going to meet up with one of my friends and her boyfriend for a double date! I'm excited - I haven't seen her in about a year! 

Hope that you all have a wonderful Thursday night! 

xoxo,

Laura

Love the love the colour pop from the beautiful cardigan and the shoes. Does Pittsburgh have a good thrifting scene? I live in Ottawa and it is pretty good, at least I have a lot of luck. I have a blog too at www.vintagethrifter51.com and would love it if you could check it out. Cheers, Michele
