Hello Hello!!! So yes it is summer now and I know it has felt like summer much longer than when the actual season started but that is how the weather works now. The beginning of the season means that Rachel Zoe is sending out her Box of Style. I believe it is still available if after I show you all this stuff and you are interested. I will say that I love the products in this box.
Beach Cover Up
So I finally had a pool day and had time to really try all this stuff out. I love this cover up. The white color is amazing, I love how lose it and how light and airy it is. It was over 100 degrees these weekend and while wearing this over a pair of jean shorts (right) I didn’t even feel over heated. It was really great. It also looks really great if you want to wear it somewhere other than the beach. Since it is so lose and flowy if you wear it with jean I would tuck it in the front.
The detail up on the front is really nice, makes the top very unique and separates it from all the other white beach cover ups out there. This is a Bindya Lace Cover Up.
Straw Beach Bag
This is a straw bag that was designed specifically by Rachel Zoe. I love this bag, I don’t have anything specifically like this in my closet so it was really refreshing. This bag is great it fits everything with room to spare. I was sitting by the pool the other day and was able to fit my clutch, my towel, sunscreen, water bottle, some beer and a change of clothes. I love that it is in black and not tan like most other straw bags. There are no pockets inside but that does not bother be since it is specifically designed to be a carry all tote for the beach. The straps are really amazing they are breaded black and white and I think it is a great extra detail.
Whenever Rachel Zoe designs something specifically for the box of style I am always impressed with it.
So this was the item that you can choose between two options as a way to personalize the box a little bit. I picked the lighter one, for no reason other than I am really liking the pink color that is through out the towel. The other towel has a little bit more bold and graphic print and it was hard to pick between the two. I have never had a towel that was fringed around the edge and looked this nice. I was a little afraid that this would get dirty easily but I used it all day at the pool and even sat on it at the edge and still looks perfect. The towel is actually a lot bigger then a normal towel. I actually liked this more then I expected to, this is a Skova towel.
AHHH!! So I have been wanting to buy a pair of fringe earrings for a while now I just haven’t been able to find a pair that I really like to commit to. So when I saw these were in the box I got really excited. These were a white fringe that were not too big. The concern with these was would they be heavy. Actually no they are not, they are quite light compared to other earrings this size I own. I wore these recently to dress up a really casual outfit.
Lastly, Kate Glow Moisturizer
The timing of sending me a moisturizer we great, I had just used up all of mine and was looking forward to not having to buy another moisturizer. So this is my least favorite product. The smell is not my favorite but I prefer none scented (its just me), the scent is okay just not for me. As a moisturizer it is pretty good but I would say compared to others it is not absorbed into the skin as quickly and tends to sit on top. So I probably would not independently buy this product but I will continue to use it.
Overall I really love most of these products and think I will get a good amount of use out of all of them. So the box of style is the most expensive subscription box, so is it worth it? I think that if you are a beach/ pool person you will get a great amount of usage and it is worth it.
