~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The ocean beach which I frequent is bordered by dunes, sea grass, wild rose bushes and lots of deer along its north end. Through those dunes, there is a boardwalk to a nearly 200-year-old lighthouse. Norfolk’s design was inspired by the many walks I’ve taken along that path. Worked in one piece, seamlessly, from the bottom up, ts raglan cardigan design with wide, flowing shawl collar, flared bodice and sleeves along with delicate waist shaping make this the perfect piece for an evening stroll or when the air-conditioning gets turned up.
