Best of all, Rachel's thrown in her own styling tips and tricks on how to wear them—because even if there are no red carpets in your immediate future, there's no harm in always looking camera-ready, right?

"I am obsessed with Arcona’s Magic Dry Ice lotion. I spend so much time at the beach and in the park with my son so my skin needs an ultra-hydrating moisturizer."

"This little leather mini is versatile and so easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. Summer is the time to wear it bare-legged with your favorite gladiator flat sandals, and in the winter, just add tights, a silk shirt underneath and your favorite booties."

"A cropped jacket silhouette is the perfect way to wear leather year-round. Try it over your favorite maxi dress with wedge sandals and aviator sunnies during the summer. To add a little edge in the fall, layer the jacket over a slouchy knit, leggings and moto booties."
