The dark days are here. It's time to plan the escape. A getaway to warm temps, blue sky, and ever-shining sun. An island? A local beach? A really good movie or book where you feel transported to the beach? Or...if all else fails, a piece of jewelry which embodies the laid back feeling of a beach holiday. Shells, beads, bold color, vintage coral ... find something with a symbolic vacay vibe you can have forever. Because tans fade fast.
