Happy Friday er'body! I am so excited for this weekend. I had kind of a frustrating week for various reasons I won't bore you with. I am looking forward to a little baseball and maybe some more boating. Be sure to follow along on @mymonochromaticlife to stay up to date with me!

Since it was another kind of uninteresting week. I decided to share with you all my Summer Rachel Zoe Box of Style. I have done the Fall, Winter and Spring but never a Summer. Some of her boxes are awesome, some have been more beauty heavy or full of kind of strange things (e.g. cards..umm....ok) but this one was excellent. I am so excited!

This was probably the "hero" item although there were several high ticket items. Kimonos are making a comeback this season. They were big a couple of years ago, faded away but are back with vengeance. They seem to be more feminine and less boho and this one is so on point. I love that it is sheer and the florals are perfect for summer. I wore it out with my favorite Madewell shorts and black tank top. I went shopping on a hot day and a group of women said "you a fashionable mom!" I felt pretty good I won't lie. This is a great way to layer a look without baking in the summer heat.

I won't lie, I have not tried this yet. It is small and compact so it fits perfectly in my purse. It is a stick-like deodorant so you don't have to worry about an aerosol or any hand prints because you didn't rub it in well. I also read on the website that it is kid friendly, however, I am not sure how small it is safe for. I am excited to just throw this in my purse to have for running around to keep my skin safe.

Wouldn' t be a Rachel Zoe box without some oversized sunglasses, right? These are pretty picture perfect. Typically I don't see a huge difference between expensive vs affordable sunglasses. These are definitely a higher quality. You can feel it in the weightyness (is that a word?) of them. This was the 'choice' item where I got to pick between black and tortoise. I opted for the latter. I don't know what it is about black rimmed ones, just not my thing. I am going between these and my Gap sunnies right now, just depends on the outfit du jour.

I was unsure about this at first. I haven't tried a cream blush before and I was not sure I wanted to. I always worry they won't blend right and look all streaky. This dissuaded all my worries. I really loved this. It goes on pretty stark but blends easy. It also comes in a pretty tube, what can I say? I judge a book by it's cover ;) Definitely worth a try.

I.love.hats. This is no different. What is especially fun about this are the little poms, which are very on trend right now. Super delicate and fun. I also love a panama hat. Just do, can't explain it. I think it just makes everything look effortless and chic. I can't help myself. This will join me at every outdoor outing this summer. And it's affordable. Can't beat that.

A little bling never hurt anyone right? This is the second box in a row that is a "do good" item. This is made by fair trade artisans in Cambodia.  10% of the profits are donated to fight human trafficking. I love the delicate compass design and it is a short necklace so it is a perfect layering item. So a good looking item that also benefits a worthy cause? win-win

There you have it. I think this might be my favorite box to date. Definitely more fashion than beauty, which is what I want from Rachel Zoe. I like feeling that she personally styled me! What do you think? I would love to hear from you.
