Little Rosita is almost all grown up!  She's not really fitting into the regular boxes anymore.

The Zoe Report Box of Style is a quarterly box curated by Rachel Zoe.  All subscribers receive the same products with perhaps some color and/or scent variation.  The products are a mix of accessories, jewelry, beauty products, and home goods.  The value of the box is $400+ and the products are always full size.

Here's what came in the Summer 2017 The Zoe Report Box of Style:

The summer box was worth $466.95.  The value is always amazing!  We got an article of clothing, two accessories, a jewelry item, a makeup item, and a sunblock this quarter.  It's the perfect summer box!  This quarter, though, they did not have a sponsored extra, which surprised me.

First up, we have the Helena Quinn kimono.  Sorry, it was hard to get a good picture of this!  This was custom-designed for Box of Style and is made of georgette.  The kimono is sheer and lightweight.  It's beautiful!  This can be used over a shirt when you're wearing jeans or shorts, as a beach coverup, or as a robe, so it's quite versatile.  I prefer using it as a beach coverup.  Unfortunately, this kimono comes in only one size, so it won't work for some plus size women.  While I love getting beach coverups in boxes, I wish they would offer subscribers different sizes.  This is a big part of the value of the box and I would be pretty upset if it didn't fit me!

Next up, we have the RAEN Durante sunglasses.  Subscribers were able to choose either the black or tortoiseshell color.  Both of the colors were made exclusively for this box.  The Durante comes in black on the RAEN website, but the lens color is different from the one offered by Box of Style.  I had the hardest time choosing the color I wanted!  My first inclination was to go with the tortoiseshell, but then I saw that the black had purplish lenses.  I chose the black, but then there was an issue with my order processing and I had to resubmit the order and I chose tortoiseshell when I resubmitted my order.  Really, though, I would have been happy with either.  These are very over-sized cat-eye glasses, but I love how they look on me.  They really complement my square face.

I'm not much of a hat person, but I love Sole Society's Straw Panama Hat with Poms!  The teeny pompoms are very on-trend right now.  I've always been told I look good in hats, but I've never enjoyed wearing them.  This is one of the few hats I will actually wear.  I wore this to the beach and it kept the hot sun off my face while still letting me look cute.  I love that Box of Style put together a whole beach look for us this quarter with the kimono, hat, and sunglasses!

The Brave Collection donates 10% of their profits to fight human trafficking.  The Compass Chain Necklace was made by fair trade artisans in Cambodia.  The necklace is cute, but it isn't really my style.  It's not all that flashy.  If you like delicate, understated pieces, you'll love this necklace.

Swatch of Beautycounter Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Hibiscus

Swatch of Beautycounter Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Hibiscus

Beautycounter's Color Pinch Cream Blush in Hibiscus has fabulous pigment, as you can see above!  It blends out easily, though, so you can have a beautiful, subtle pink flush of color on your cheeks.  It contains jojoba and carnauba wax, making it moisturizing.  This held up all day and looked very natural.

Finally, we have Beautycounter's Protect Stick Sunscreen.  I kind of wish they hadn't had two Beautycounter products in one box, but I like them both, so I can live with it.  This sunscreen is water-resistant and contains aloe, shea butter, and coconut and açaí oils, so it's even good for your skin.  It has a soft, sweet scent from the cocoa butter in it.  This is a facial sunblock, but you could use it on your body if needed.  It goes on clear, so it won't give your skin a weird white cast.  This protected my skin from the sun, plus kept my skin hydrated but not oily.  This is one of my favorite facial sunscreens.

The Zoe Report Box of Style was fabulous this summer!  The kimono, glasses, beach hat, and necklace will have you looking cute on the beach, plus you get some sunblock to protect your skin and some blush to complete the look.  I love that they chose products that all go together well instead of just throwing in random items.  The glasses and kimono were my favorite products, with the beach hat close behind them.  I also loved the sunscreen and blush.  The compass necklace isn't quite my style, but I like it and will wear it occasionally.  The box does feel like it is missing something as I am so used to the Box of Style having a small sponsored extra, but I can't really complain about my box not having an extra added bonus.  These boxes are still available, so, if you're looking forward to spending some time on the beach this summer, I recommend subscribing!  

Did anyone else get the summer Box of Style?  Did you love it as much as I loved mine?
