This bolero is inspired by the Thunder Road racing scene in Grease, perfect for a warm but breezy summer day or evening as a little something to cover your shoulders. Pair it with a halter top and capris for a bad girl look, a full skirted dress for a picnic, or a tiki playsuit! No 1950’s wardrobe was complete without a bolero! This little number is knit up in cotton, for comfort and breathability in warm weather.

Thunder Road is the second sweater being released as part of my “Pink Ladies Collection”, more to come!
