“Second Saturday Shawl by Mary E Rose”
The invitation said “You’re Invited! Second Saturday, event to be held outside weather permitting.” But, what to wear? You want something elegant, but not too dressy, comfortable to wear inside in air-conditioning and outside in the sun, but not too casual. A linen shawl, with a lot of texture and a little bit of lace will fill that need. Shown here in two sizes, a big wrap you up shawl and a smaller accent piece, will have you covered for any weekend spring, summer or early fall event. Equally at home for a casual jazz concert in the park or an elegant wedding on a beach, this shawl will be the one you reach for time and time again.
