If it were up to us, winter would last only as far as New Year's Day. Then we'd have months and months of uninterrupted sunshine until it was time to cozy up to autumn again. Lucky are those who live in warmer climates and don't have to battle chapped skin, 10 tons of outerwear, and endless gray days. In our opinion, the easiest pick-me-up when the dreariness becomes too much to bear is a happy splash of color and shine, and to look at the world through a new lens. And while most of us won't be putting away our winter woolens for a while, we can throw on a new pair of shades to liven things up a bit.
