This weekend, Ryan & I went to Pittsburgh to explore the city. I grew up in Western PA, so I had been to Pittsburgh many, many, many (did I emphasize many enough?) times; however, while he's visited the city before, there's a lot he didn't know about.

We started our day at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, which I hadn't been to since preschool! It was cool to explore all the dinosaur bones because way back when in kindergarten I wanted to be a paleontologist.

The natural history museum is conveniently located right next door to the Carnegie Museum of Art, so we decided to explore that as well. I had never been here before so I was really impressed with the amount of art they had -- everything from early Italian classics, to the impressionists (even a Monet, who is my favorite painter), to modern art and a few installation pieces.

Afterwards, we went down to Point Park where the three rivers meet. I had actually never been down to the Park before even though I've been in the area many times for Steelers & Pirates games. It was a beautiful day so we enjoyed just sitting out by the fountain talking and shooting the breeze.

When I'm traveling, I tend to stick to the same basic outfit formula - tank top, jeans, sandals or flats, crossbody bag, and maybe a piece of jewelry. But it's all about the details!
The black jeans are a twist on basic blue denim, while the strappy & flowy tank top is simple & comfy, but still a little dressy. Braided flat sandals are comfy for walking around, but still provide some interest. A long necklace ties it all together & takes everything up a notch.

Additionally this weekend though, we were going to Heinz Hall to see the Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy concert (Ryan is a huge fan!) so I needed an outfit that could transition easily. I switched the black jeans for a dressy black skirt from Zara, swapped the sandals for J.Crew bow flats, and put my hair down for the night.

Saturday night & Sunday morning we got a chance to visit my parents, which is always good. And then on Sunday we headed up to Kennywood Park, a small amusement park just outside of Pittsburgh.

It was the perfect Sunday of roller coasters, Potato Patch fries, water rides and homemade fudge & lemonade!

I grew up going to Kennywood and absolutely LOVE it! Ryan questioned whether it was a "legit" park at first, but after going around the whole park, he admitted it was really cool and fun. Overall, we had a great weekend!
