"My go-to travel piece"
The softness and exquisite blend of colors make this shawl a perfect choice for dressing up business outfits. I wore it on airplanes, in chilly conference centers,and out to dinner at a recent international conference and got compliments on it day and night.
- It would make a beautiful gift
