It’s that time of year when the world falls in love with snow, evergreen trees, wrapping paper and holiday lattes. While these are arguably the best highlights of chilly winter months, I’ve come into my own Christmas-time tradition…traveling to somewhere a bit warmer. It’s a gift to myself that I know I’ll enjoy, and something to look forward to when my gray New York winter becomes too much to handle. It’s also a once-a-year opportunity to mix wintery holiday pieces with glam, hot weather ensembles for an unexpected (but always stylish) juxtaposition. I get to play dress up, spend time with my love, and work on my tan. And these are a few of my favorite things.
