~ Helena Quinn Kimono ~ ♥♥♥
I’m a jeans and tee kind of girl…who now loves kimonos. This design is GORGEOUS. I love the sheer look, the beautiful print, and I cannot wait to pair this beauty with shorts, dresses, a bikini, jeans…anything, really. It is lightweight and one size (with an added belt to cinch in the waist for a new style). Love Love Love this design. This is easily my favorite item in the box.
~ Raen “Durante” Sunglasses in Black ~ ♥♥♥
You can never have too many sunnies. And in my case, I can never have too many oversize black sunnies. I like the design. It’s an oversize cat-eye and you had the option of choosing either black or tortoise. I chose black, which I think looks fab on blondes like myself, and I couldn’t be happier. They block out the sun nicely and they are the perfect chic add-on to any Summer look.
~ The Brave Collection Compass Necklace ~ ♥♥♥
This necklace meant a lot to me. First off, the booklet that accompanies the Box of Style reads: “This piece is handmade by fair-trade artisans in Cambodia, and 10% of profits are donated toward the fight against human trafficking.” This is lovely that Rachel Zoe and her team included this in their Box of Style. The tag line is “Courage is Contagious” and you are encouraged to “wear your Compass with a joyful spirit for all that lies ahead.”
This meant a lot to me, because I needed extra strength to be with me this past week. My boyfriend was in the hospital for the better part of a week and this necklace reminded me to stay strong and that everything would work out fine. And you can bet I wore this sucker the entire time, too! The gold Compass design is very simple and chic and this necklace is perfect for layering or wearing alone.
~ Sole Society Straw Panama Hat ~ ♥♥♥
Have we met? I LOVE HATS. And what better hat for Summer than a Panama Hat? I love this. It’s incredibly comfy and how cute is this little detail? This hat can be worn with anything. It’s adorable with a fab Summer dress, cut offs, little black shorts, with a bikini, whatever! I’m excited to try different hair styles with this hat as well! I think it would be adorable with braids!
~ BeautyCounter “Color Pinch” Cream Blusher in Hibiscus and Protect Stick Sunscreen ~ ♥♥♥
This cream blusher is awesome! The color is very pretty (blushes can scare me because I am so pale) and it gives a perfect pinch of color. The consistency is nice, but I quickly learned to dab on the color instead of swiping it on. This makes it easier to blend and lets you add on more color if needed. You can also dab this on your lips for a nice pop of color as well! The sunscreen is also fabulous. It’s a stick, which makes it easy to apply and the consistency is very light and not sticky. It blends quickly and you have no clue you are wearing sunscreen. And did I mention it’s SPF 30 and water resistant? Perfect for the pool (or beach) this Summer.
