Today I wanted to share with you Raleigh’s best kept secret, until now! I grew up in North Raleigh, and my parents would always take us to an Italian restaurant nearby called Capri Restaurant. This restaurant is owned by Dino who is from Italy, and it’s a hidden gem located in the corner of a shopping center. You probably haven’t seen it before, unless you’ve been looking for it in particular, but I highly recommend going for a truly authentic experience. I was so excited when Dino invited me along with some of my blogging friends for a fun dinner a few weeks ago! They made us a few different dishes including eggplant parmesan, cheese tortellini in a truffle butter sauce, salmon piccata, chicken cacciatore, caprese salad, and seafood ravioli which were all served family style. It also wouldn’t be a true dinner at Capri without red wine, tiramisu, and cappuccino. All of the food was incredible, and everyone was talking about how much they loved this restaurant. Here are the pictures from the evening:

Thanks to Capri for having us for dinner! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This outfit is the opposite of what most people wear during the springtime. Spring outfits are usually all about color, but there’s something that I love about an all black outfit with a pop of pink. I recently picked up this top from Loft after admiring the bell sleeve trend for quite some time. Bell sleeves can be tricky for me since my arms usually aren’t long enough, but the length of these bell sleeves is perfect. What do you think of the bell sleeve trend?

I’ve been trying to incorporate yoga into my routine once or twice a week. A few weeks ago I went to checkout CorePower Yoga in Cameron Village, and I didn’t realize how many different classes they offer. They have classes for beginners, people that have been practicing yoga for a while, and they also have classes that include weights. They also have a large selection of clothing including this fun ‘pop, fizz, clink’ tank and these printed leggings that I’m in love with. After checking out CorePower Yoga, I went over to Benelux Coffee and grabbed a cup of tea. The weather has been amazing in North Carolina lately (minus the recent rain), so I was able to enjoy my tea while sitting outside. I’m excited to check out other items on their menu next time!

I recently received this navy lace top from J.Jill and it was love at first sight! Lately I’ve been only wanting to add pieces to my wardrobe that I can wear during the weekend and also the work week. I love this versatile top here with jeans and my new favorite wedges, but I’ve also worn it to the office with a pair of black pants and nude pumps. It’s definitely a piece that I recommend adding to your closet if you’re looking for versatility!
