I'm sad to report that I haven't taken advantage of my close proximity to Savannah nearly as much as I should have. It's within an hour of Hilton Head and is definitely a place I must explore more often. Savannah has all the characteristics of a great city--history, haunted places, and good food. My friend Julia and I took a quick visit on Sunday and the only drawback was the incredibly high heat. Luckily, between the Spanish moss and shady trees, there was some shelter from the heat other than dashing into air-conditioned boutiques as often as possible. Right before we took these photos, I also managed to break these shoes, so I also have that going for me. (Cheers for solid website return policies!)
I bought the skirt about a month ago from J Crew Factory and recently added the gingham skirt and purse to my closet as well. At first I felt like maybe I went a little crazy with their recent online sales, but I've really fallen in love with the versatility of these items. The pink gingham will look amazing with white pants and Sperry's for a casual dockside look and the rose gold clutch is a great way to jazz up a neutral.
All in all, I felt like a 50's housewife wandering around Savannah, which is a pretty fantastic way to feel. I can tell you right now--there will be several day trips to Savannah in the very near future.
