Summertime Fine!

Cheers to warm weather and sunshine! It is almost time for my Summer in Florida. So I am imagining slipping on my swimsuit and a light cover up before heading to the pool/beach. I browsed the local Italian swim wear boutiques to see what is offered and I fell in love with this cover up. Although I wont be bathing in the sun in Italy, I will be back home enjoying The Sunshine State!

I also noticed Victoria Secret has a great collection of cover-ups this season. Below is their neon green lace romper which caught my eye! It is on sale for $29.00 on their website right now.

Live from Italy.. Favorite foods! Part 1

Roc Me Out boutique was developed with heart because of my love for retail. But if you know me, then you already know that food of all kinds is my other passion!  Living in a new country has allowed me to try a variety of new cuisines. Here are my favorite items so far in Italy.

 

#1 The BEST pizzeria EVER in my opinion.. Just cannot get enough.

#2 The real gelato in Italy is unmatched. Any flavor you can imagine, whether you want a fruity flavor or a rich dolce option like chocolate.

#3 Local cafe where you can sit inside or outside. Their specialty is serving fresh drinks which comes along with complimentary snacks.. Slightly obsessed at this point.

My Monday obsession.. A sporty spring style.

Just in time for the NBA and NHL playoffs!! A 2014 spring fashion trend perfect for fun in the sun and cheering on your team. Whether you splurge on Karl Lagerfeld or save by shopping in a local boutique, these numbered jersey tops are team neutral.

ROC this flirty top with denim shorts or as a part of your beach/pool style. I love this look because I am a sports lover but a girly girl at the same time, so the feminine touch with floral prints is right up my alley. Below are my favorite tops after browsing the internet. I might just have to go back to this little boutique and purchase my own style!

Italian Legging Boutique

I like to browse the local boutiques while I am out and about. Above is a storefront in the local mall that popped out to me. Floral print is popular in a bold way over here, the colors are vibrant and prints are popping.

Spring has sprung in Italy and the sun is shinning. It is in the high 60s today but feels like it is the 70s with no humidity. Perfect weather to wear a floral print pair of leggings and tank top.

I was curious to see what American stores were offering the same category, I came across Victoria Secret’s Spring leggings on http://www.victoriasecret.com for $29.99.

Lady Gaga for Versace

This photo popped out to me for a few different reasons. Versace’s homepage displays their new campaign- Lady Gaga for Versace! Love everything about this from her chunky jewelry, MIDI RINGS, the pastel tote bags, and Gaga’s  fierce pose. This almost reminds me of an under the sea spring look because of the couch’s oyster shell shape, sea-like coloring, and the natural make-up.

Midi-rings are fun accessories that adds a little something extra to the usual ring look. Shop our ring collection at Roc Me Out Online Boutique and get right this Spring!!

The Perfect Sweet Dessert Topping!

As much as I wish I was the one who  ROCs our kitchen, I would be lying. I cook everyday but my man is a creative cook and can throw down! When he decides to cook I get excited because I know my tummy will be in for a treat. He likes good ol’ southern home cooking with grilling, fried chicken, cheesy homemade dishes,  fresh vegetables, desserts, and the list goes on.. Lucky me! I know.. This passion of his was passed to him by his mom, the true southern home cookin’ chef! Her baked goods are TDF!!! No lie..

Yes, my multi-talented boyfriend not only cooks, plays basketball but will beat me every time on the pool table!

The other day he made a homemade cheesecake with a Keebler graham cracker crust (this ingredient was a big deal since we are in Italy and you cant find that here). It was left by an American friend, thanks!!

The fresh all-natural fruit topping was tangy, sweet, and no doubt the best part. We killed the cheesecake after 3 nights of servings. Now I am still craving more.

A mixture of fresh raspberries, lime juice, and sugar makes for a heavenly topping. Muddle this concoction and top any favorite dessert for a POP of fragrant flavor.

Jason's homemade cheesecake with the most delicious fresh topping- Raspberry Tang  (I made up the name of the topping, he might not approve. lol)

Claire’s backpacks.. Yes, Claires!

 

My boyfriend bought this Herschel backpack a while back and I have used it a few times as an overnight bag. I love the size, print, quality, and variety of styles offered.  Aztec print has been hot for awhile now and black and white is on trend too!
