This is one of my favorites. It seems to be very popular on my blog as well. I’m happy everyone is enjoying it! I would like to mention that I now have a shop on ETSY. You can find me at Sally’s Backyard
where I sell vintage jewelry and accessories or at Sally’s Backyard Home where I sell vintage home accessories and decor. Please stop by for a visit! 🙂

Wear this open shell design stole to cover your shoulders on a breezy summer evening. It’s elegant enough to wear for a night out or casual enough for a stroll along the beach.
