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.

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!!

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!

The price tag isn’t to steep for what you get but I was walking through the mall when I noticed a very similar yet smaller bag for half the price! Check out the Aztec print backpack from Claire’s accessory shop! I have not shopped in this store since my tween days but I couldn’t help but check it out.

Your favorite dress recycled

Living in Italy for months on just a few suitcases means you must recycle your favorite pieces. I wore this dress on New Years but wanted to bring it back in a new way last night.

I decided to turn the above dress into a top by tucking it into my Express pencil skirt.

Mixing and matching items will expand your closet in a creative way. This can be used with shorts and jeans too. I like the pencil skirt with a tucked in tight dress because it is smooth and ties together great!

It’s A Black And White Spring!

I recently posted the official Spring/Summer color guide for 2014! I know.. They were BOLD and BRIGHT, but the black & white staple look has been hotter than ever. The posh look strolled the runways in a major way during fashion week. We saw floral prints, stripes, and big totes all in black and white.

Although Versace has a Spring/Summer  pastel bag line appropriately enough, they also have new totes in ALL black. I don’t know which I love more…  Lady Gaga’s Ad or the bag below. Donatella and Lady Gaga have a similar aura.. Agree?

Skirts in black and white are great because the styling options are endless. Like what you see below? Get a similar look by visiting Roc Me Out Boutique and shop our Fit & Flare skirt.

Gel Mani & Pedi at home!

It all started back in the day for me with Lee press-on nails. I have memories of sitting on my bedroom floor laying out my color collection and picking the look for that day. I was constantly doing my own nails hoping to not spill on my white carpet (which happened too often). Once I grew up and made my own income, I would visit my local nail salon every 10 days or so to get my acrylics filled with a gel top coat and pedi.. Choosing the design, color, shape, etc. is a fun way to express your style and mood.

Well… Living in Italy and starting my own online boutique has changed things in my life, like not getting my nails done in hopes of being frugal. Not to mention there aren’t nail shops on every corner like we lucky girls have in Tampa or any metro U.S. city for that matter. But this does not stop me from looking polished and keeping a fresh coat!

I discovered the Deborah Lippmann gel coat polishes before leaving the states during one of my many trips to Ulta. This kit comes with a base coat and a top coat. First apply the base coat and let dry (dries quick), next add a color if you wish, finally add your top coat. This  extends your manicure, helps avoid chipping, and gives you that professional look.

You can also purchase Deborah Lippmann color polish as recommended, I have used a variety of brands for the color and it seems to be just fine. My tip is apply one coat of color because if the polish becomes to thick you may see it peel off over a few days. I also love the Kiss nail art, which is extremely affordable and they really last! Create your own design with the crystals or flowers after you complete the color steps. Apply a very small amount of clear polish over the design to hold down tight for a lasting look.

Voilà!!

The official color guide of Spring 2014 is bright, bold, and beautiful. The colors are diverse but pair great together.

The above maxi dress hits this freesia yellow right on. The light fabric and open caged back is cool and comfortable. This style maxi dress is nice for any body type.

Cayenne red is on the hot list this season.. Red is a color that turns heads. This accentuating wrap dress fits at the waist and offers a sexy look without exposing too much.

Dazzling Blue is a bold pop of color that matches great with a variety of other colors and accessories. Our Roc Blue Dress can be dressed up or casual. The gold embellishments add a sparkle and a bit of a bad girl look.
