Summer Essentials with the Box of Style

I have all my summer essentials with the Box of Style this season. All of the items in this box make me pool/beach ready. Unfortunately, there is no pool or beach nearby so I used my deck and pretended that I was on some amazing beach in the Caribbean.

Summer Essentials with the Box of Style

I have already written about the goodies in this box here but I thought I would style these pieces on the blog. Rachel Zoe really knocked it out the park with these summer essentials because she kept it classically chic with a white and black palette. No worries that these items will every go out of style. The colorful and fun towel is what makes your beach look pop.

The Bindya cover up is so soft and can always be used with jeans if you belt it or tuck it in. I did a similar thing with a Box of Style caftan last Friday on the blog. Step outside the box and try this styling trick with your cover up or caftan. The tote is great for travel because it can be rolled up and put in a suitcase with ease. My favorite piece is the loop fringe earrings because they are lightweight, eye-catching, and have a luxe vibe with the gold braided loops.  These have been worn multiple times already! Last but not least, the towel has a vibrant print that screams summer.

What’s in Your Beach Tote?

Besides having your towel, magazines, and sunglasses, what’s in your beach tote? Sunscreen better be one of the items. I cannot stress enough about protecting your skin from the sun.  Especially if you are over 40 like me.  This makeup setting spray that I use everyday has a sunscreen protection of 30.  I also use this brush-on sunscreen periodically during the day. I grew up on Coppertone (that smell!) but love Sun Bum sunscreen for protecting your whole body.  What’s your favorite sunscreen?
