Jewels for the winter-averse
There are those who pack their bags and head to Hawaii come the holiday season (personally, I think that sounds fabulous, and I’d love to give it a try sometime). For them, Christmas trees become palm trees, eggnog becomes a tropical libation, and the only white they’ll see covering the ground is sand—never snow. They’re the ones who strive to wear their flip-flops year-round, who always have a swimsuit at the ready, and who would probably never consider a ski-centric vacation. So, those customers whose holiday playlists consist of little ditties like “All I Want for Christmas Is a Real Good Tan” and “Mele Kalikimaka” (who doesn’t love that song, though)—these pieces are for them. Not everyone can break away from the snow this time of year, but these jewels will serve as a friendly little reminder that it’s always summer somewhere—even if it’s on the other side of the world.
