Remember when I told you how versatile these boots were? Well, here’s a perfect example of how easily they lend themselves to the mod/rocker vibes when paired with a cool leather mini skirt. I wore this for dinner at Napoli Pasta Bar – a new Italian spot in Columbia Heights. Let me just start by saying I get really excited about places like this, maybe even more so than the fancy, trendy restaurants In the era of tweezer food and 3 hour waits for a table at the latest hot spot, I often get nostalgic for the cute neighborhood cafe that you can rely on for a great meal for an impromptu dinner with friends on a Tuesday night just as easily as date night on Saturday. Napoli is totally that place. The pasta is fantastic and the decor makes you feel like you’re in southern Italy (the bright, hand-painted ceramic plates and baby blue Vespa table are an IGers dream!). If you go, make sure you try the Zuccotto di Melanzana (eggplant and ricotta cheese with pesto and tomato sauces) to start and Pasta e Patan (short pasta in potato broth with tomatoes and mozzerella) – you won’t be sorry!
