Delicious (and healthy) Italian food, plus all pink everything..?

Well go ahead, and sign me up!

After seeing it’s bubble gum pink exterior pop up all over my Instagram feed for ages, I finally made my way downtown to Pietro Nolita. And of course, I just had to dress for the occasion in a fun, girly head-to-toe pink ensemble. Not gonna lie, I felt kinda basic when I strolled up and saw a line of women waiting outside to take pictures. But hey, sometimes a gal’s gotta do what a gal’s gotta do for the ‘gram…

In addition to having the cutest decor, the food was also pretty good. Their schtick is “healthy” Italian, and I will say that I felt much lighter and more energetic than I usually do after stuffing my face full of pasta. We started with the goat cheese and oat tomato crositini and split fusilli al limone and chicken on the brick for our main entrees. Everything was great, but the pasta especially knocked it out of the park for me. We left feeling full, but not overstuffed, and even saved room for dessert at the OddFellows Ice Cream Co. pop-up shop around the corner (they’re caramel popcorn cone is to die for).

If you ever find yourself in Manhattan and decide to give Pietro Nolita a whirl, be sure to dress the part. The dress I’m wearing is sold out in pink on H&M’s website, but it also comes in white and blue. But no need to fret, ‘cuz I’ve rounded up a few more options for you below to help you on your way to totally pinked out bliss!

About the Fit:
This dress fits like a dream, and it’s hard to go wrong. I got my normal size and was able to wear it straight off the rack with no issues. I LOVE the fact that it has pockets, and the shorter length is perfect on my 5’7″ frame without showing off all the goods. 😉

When the temps start to get steamy, the last thing I want to do is anything waste time poring over my closet. That’s why I love simple, easy pieces like this white eyelet dress from Old Navy. The cami style is perfect for warm summer days, and I’ve collected a few in different colors and patterns over the years. They always go on sale too, so you can often snag them for around $15 or less! I usually toss a few in may bag whenever I go on vacation because they travel well.

About the Fit:
This style is very forgiving and runs pretty true to size. I’m 5’7″ and the length is just perfect for a casual weekend look – not too long and not too short. The adjustable shoulder straps and panel of elastic in the back also make it easy to accommodate a variety of figures.

Flirty Red Summer Dresses

I simply could not resist this flirty red dress for my recent trip to Florida. The temps were steaming, and I sizzled in this cute little number. To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive about the cutout in front when I first saw it online. But I decided to take a chance, and boy did it pay off. I’m tempted to go back and get it in white. And who can blame me, since this dress is a whopping $25?!

About the Fit:
I sized up on this one to avoid any weird bulges in the cutout area and to ensure ample boob coverage (working with DD’s over here, lol). That worked out well for me, although I did wind up shortening the straps some (short torso problems). If you have a smaller bust (and a toned tummy), you can definitely order your normal size with no problem.

Red is one of my favorite colors, but I don’t wear it nearly often enough. Looking back at these photos makes me want to change all that, so I’ve rounded up my favorite flirty red summer dresses below.

Happy Shopping!
