Whenever I go to the beach, most of my time is spent looking for interesting things in the sand, in the rocks, or floating along in the water. I don’t swim, sun bathe, play sports, or do any other typical beach activities. I keep my eyes on the ground in front of me and take a nice long walk. You never know what you might find.

With a center out construction, lace pattern, afterthought sleeve, and easily customized sizing, you’ll be surprised at what you can find with this shrug.
