Good morning loves!
This week, we decided to pay a visit to one of our classics. Both the service and food are impeccable, which is very hard to find, if you dine out as often as we do. They are most well known for their extraordinary authentic Italian dishes. Each visit, you can expect to receive their complimentary appetizers, which consist of the following: freshly imported Italian cheese, fried zucchini, brushetta, fresh cut salami, and of course, fresh Italian bread. We always decide to add on to those, by choosing from their delicious selections of appetizers, which you will see below, along with our entrées and dessert.
As for the dress code, this is the type of restaurant where you can break out that little black dress number, or you can opt for a bit more of a business casual look, either way, you will not feel the least bit out of place, as long as you don't wear sneakers and a baseball hat, lol! I chose to wear a pair of skinny jeans with a black peplum top, which had some leather paneling down the sides and a cut out around the neck-bone. I chose to pair the look with these new nude pumps, which I purchased from Marshall's a few days ago, because I wanted to see how the look would turn out. To be honest, I wouldn't pair skinny jeans, nude pumps, and a peplum top again, since I have long legs and the nude pumps obviously lengthened me further, and the peplum top, I felt cut me down at the top a bit, emphasizing that I have a short torso. But, isn't this the reason I blog?! I experiment and learn what works and what doesn't work and you guys can benefit from my trial and error, lol! But on another note, it does prove to show that nude pumps will always lengthen you, which is a good strategy for all my petite readers/viewers to try, which I will mention in my next video on Monday.
Enjoy the pictures and I'll talk to you guys soon...
