In my honest opinion, quintessential Palm Beach aesthetic and Allegra Fanjul Garcia-Velez are synonymous with one another. No one nails tropical style quite like my friend Allegra compliments of her keen eye for fashion, affinity for brazen colors, love of layering accessories, permanent tan and Cheshire cat smile. She’s also the sweetest gal ever — making this natural beauty a magnetic force and really easy to hang around with, too.
When not creating her handmade beautiful baubles, VeryAllegra, you’ll find the Palm Beach-based Jewelry Designer & Blogger active within the philanthropy community, spending time with her hubby Cachi and black Labrador retriever Charlie, traveling to de rigueur spots such as Casa de Campo, Capri and the Hamps, cooking clean eats, reading or working out. Without further ado, here are LEGS’ musts in her own words…
