Color me BAD!

This time of year I always feel like its time for pops of color to be a priority in my wardrobe.. You know? It’s like May comes around and it’s time for floral, nautical prints, and pops of colors in accessories, bags, and shoes. Celebrate the warm weather!

This look is easy to achieve by stacking on some arm candy. Mix and match bright colored stone bangles!!

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!!

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.

Fun In Floral

Spring 2014 is full of bright colors, botanical prints, and feminine lace! I still love high-wasted skirts that fit the body just right, so mix this hot print with an accentuating pencil skirt and I will be happy. This skirt is available at the European store, OVS in Italy for only 16 Euros. They did not have my size, but I will be checking out the other local locations for this product. Its reminiscent of 70s daisy flowers but the black background gives this skirt a grown woman look.

Hopefully similar stores in The U.S. like H&M will carry looks like this.

Spruce Up Your Denim

Spring is here.. Well it feels like it in some places more than others.. Its time to for spring cleaning and putting away those winter clothes. As much as I want a new spring/summer wardrobe that is not going to happen, so I was inspired to spruce up my denim shorts.

I happen to have a couple of old shirts made out of lace so I decided to go with this fabric but of course you can use anything you’d like.. Lace is hot right now as well as floral print.

Any lace shirt can be cut up for lace pockets on a pair of denim shorts.

Any lace shirt can be cut up for lace pockets on a pair of denim shorts.

Start by cutting a larger piece of fabric from the shirt, table cloth, or whatever fabric you are using. Make sure it is larger than the pocket so you can size correctly. Place this fabric on top of the pocket you will be covering, hold with push pins. Cut by tracing the size. Stitch the lace right onto the outer pocket with needle and thread. Now you have yourself a new pair of shorts to ROC!

Love the simplicity and feminine touch that the lace adds to these light washed denim shorts.
