Boho-Beach Chic? Full Speed Ahead, We Say!

Faux fur at the sea? And boots, too? You’d think this sounds like a sartorial shipwreck just waiting to happen, but blogger Christina of Trop Rouge pulls off this daring dockside look with enviable ease. I love the ’60s funk of her shaggy vest and persimmon button-down, and her casual white dress, cognac boots, and Nineties-tastic ruffled socks. Definitely saving this photo as inspiration for my next beach vacation!

What do you think? Is boho-beach chic a fashion “do,” or “don’t”?

    Just because you on on the coast, doesn’t mean it’s sandal weather.

    so cute! i think the thing to remember about dressing for the beach is not all beaches are bikini practical. i’ve been in scotland for the past five months, and although they have some of the most beautiful beaches here (think St. Andrews) there’s not way I would attempt frolicking across the sand without some serious layers.its just too cold.

    cute! I think that the bare legs keep the beachyness of it. This could work on a cool day by the ocean 🙂

    I’m not sure about the boots for the beach, but everything else is fantastic!
