Summer fun is rolling in the ‘Burgh and everyone is looking for an excuse to take a usual indoor activity, outdoors! Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership held their first ‘Rooftop Shindig’ this month and I was blown away at just how much they had happening on the top of a parking garage! Movies, music, food, games and beer! Rooftop Shindig is the perfect Wednesday night treat and it’s free! If you missed out on the first, don’t worry, there are still 3 more to come!

Pittsburgh was over the moon excited for Taylor Swift’s 1989 Tour to roll through town this past Saturday night and I never miss an occasion to 1) ‘Shake It Off’ 2) Wear red lipstick. Fortunately enough for me Sarah of The Surznick Common Room shares the same passions. We linked up before the show and I’m so excited to share our concert-ready outfits!
Any long-time Taylor fans knows we started this journey wearing cowgirls boots to her concerts, but over the years have transformed to more of a retro pop vibe; as has her music. Taylor is known for her adorable and flashy co-ordinates and I just so happen to be a fan as well. I don’t usually go crazy for pieces I find at the mall but this two-piece was the first thing to catch my eye and I instantly fell in love.
I love to style statement necklaces but this neckline spoke for its self! Black and white stripes with a pop of red is my go-to combo. Combining neutrals is also a recent favorite of mine.(Camo counts as a neutral am I right ladies?!)
I recently invested in a pair of Ray-ban sunglasses (cross your fingers I finally feel responsible enough to NOT break them!) and I can’t stop wearing them. I never want to take them off. With my red hair and pale skin, black frames often feel too hard on my face. I opted for the club masters in tortoise and haven’t looked back since!

I really enjoyed getting to work and know another local Pittsburgh blogger! It’s one of the best parts of blogging I didn’t realize I would get to do when I started. Pop over to The Surznick Common Room to find details of what Sarah wore to the show!
