Azalea Season

Sunday, March 12, 2023

It is azalea season here in Savannah. I spent a lot of time downtown this weekend enjoying all of the flowers before the crowds next weekend. It was so much fun, although it rained a lot this weekend. I had coffee with my sister and a friend of mine at Café M and we also celebrated a friend's birthday this weekend with a surprise party.

Charleston Recap

Tuesday, February 14, 2023

Happy Wednesday everyone! A couple weeks ago my husband and I went to Charleston for the day to celebrate our two year wedding anniversary. We had such a fun time, Charleston is always so beautiful. 

For our trip, I wore this dress from Kitri, a new to me brand, and I absolutely loved it. It was extremely comfortable to walk around outside all day. I also wore my old Jack Rogers sandals in the style 'Lilliana'. I purchased these a long time ago and I don't believe they make them anymore, but these have been crazy comfortable for long walking days. I reinforced them with super glue after I purchased them since I knew these were going to be used for some of my cuter outfits when travelling and walking a lot. I am impressed, they have held up great and they probably have a solid 200+ miles on them.

While in Charleston, we started the day walking by Rainbow Row and then the battery. I wanted a slightly better picture of Rainbow Row, but it was so crowded I just snapped a quick one. I was so excited, we also saw my favorite pink house in Charleston. 

After walking around there for a while, we went to a coffee shop named La Patisserie and the coffee was so good. From there, we walked to Hạ Long Café and ate some of their summer rolls for lunch. From there, we walked back to the battery and sat to watch some of the boats. While we were walking, we stopped for another cup of coffee at Clerks Coffee Company. It was a nice break since the weather was starting to get bad. 

Our day ended with a reservation at Husk. Sean and I both have celiac disease and they told us they could accommodate our allergy. We were not disappointed! I was able to try fried catfish for the first time. It was served with red rice and collard greens. Sean had rabbit that was served with grits. The dinner was absolutely divine. We were a little damp for the meal since it had been raining for a couple hours at this point, but I wouldn't change a thing. It was a great way to spend our anniversary.

Getting Ready for St. Patrick's Day in Savannah

Sunday, February 12, 2023

Even thought St. Patrick's Day is a little over a month away, it is never too early to start wearing green in Savannah. It is definitely one of the biggest holidays of the year here. Everyone pulls out their brightest Kelly Green outfits and it is a ton of fun. I was so excited when I found this green set a couple months ago from Mango. I have worn it so many times and it is the perfect shade of Kelly Green. 

I am still looking for the perfect outfit for St. Patrick's this year and am currently interested in this green dress (I love the floral print!) and this more simple green dress.

Let me know what everyone will be wearing in the comments below!

The Prettiest Road in Savannah

Sunday, January 29, 2023

Happy Monday everyone! One of my favorite things to do is walk around downtown. We recently took these photos on one of the prettiest roads in Savannah, Jones Street. Jones Street has some of the most beautiful houses downtown and the oak trees and spanish moss over the road really highlight it's beauty. 

I wore one of my standard work outfits with some vintage red shoes and a vintage leather handbag. It's funny, because I now buy probably 85% of my wardrobe second hand. I have such a hard time finding quality pieces that I really love when shopping regular retail. I don't want to spend money on clothes that I only kind of like. This was really prominent when I went to the mall this week. I went to several department stores and they were selling a lot of very expensive clothing that was poorly constructed. Browsing eBay, Poshmark, and local consignment stores, I have found beautiful older and more unique pieces that I love and the quality is so much better. The older I get the more important good quality has become. 

I am curious what other people think about buying clothing second-hand? I grew up thrift shopping and second-hand shopping and loved it, but when I was younger I think it was looked upon poorly. With the popularity of TikTok and thrift shopping hauls, I think it has grown more popular. I'd love to hear your thoughts below!
