For me this beautiful neck warmer embodies timeless romance, and charm. I’m a bit of an “old soul” and go weak in the knees for anything lacy, and feminine (don’t get me started on frills and ruffles!). This piece is modern enough to go with today’s latest fashions, but is reminiscent of a by-gone-era of socials at the lighthouse and walks in the rose garden. It’s a perfect accessory for date night, or any special occasion.
