Fringe with Benefits

I have a thing for all things fringe all throughout the year. Whether it is a coat, bag or skirt, I tend to find some way to throw it into my daily style. That is why I fell in love with this gorgeous fringe Cleobella jacket, and even added more fringe to the mix with a fringe-suede cross-body bag. Too fringe-y? I think not. Not when you live in sunny Southern California where it tends to be above 70 degrees the majority of the time. Therefore, my style tends to be a mix of bohemian to match my beachy personality and New York chic to match my busy work life.

I tend to travel a ton for work and love loose fitting jumpers and dresses. One brand that has been my ultimate go-to, which if you follow me on Instragram @savvyjavvy, you will see that I wore their items all throughout Europe; Spell & the Gypsy Collective. They are an Aussie brand that have infiltrated the LA style scene and I do not see them leaving anytime soon. The dress I am wearing here is made by them and I got it from the Foray Collective. It is absolutely perfect for a beach cover up or even just a day shopping with your girlfriends. I don't have the largest chest area, so I opt to wear dresses like this without a bra, but if you happen to be blessed in the area, throw on a bandeau top under it and it will be perfect.

I am starting to become a tad bit obsessed with the new Foray Collective site because it carries a lot of the brands that I am in love with. Think Tulum beachy-keen vibes mixed with a city girl. They have something for everyone on there, but for me, I like that they could be my one-stop-shop while looking for items to fill my travels with. 

Hope you enjoy some of these Santa Monica beach shots taken by @roguefoto (Ben Smith) in some of my cute new items from the Foray site!
