Savannah

Summer is not over until we go to the coast. I am talking about the oldest city of Savannah in the state of Georgia. We been here so many times but the charm of the city never fails to fascinate me. The architectural designs of the older buildings, churches & turn of the century houses evokes lots of history and beauty.
 One day is not enough to visit and to do things around town. There are so many historical places to see and ghostly cemeteries to go to as a tour by night. If that is not your cup of tea, a river cruise would be just as fine. We did all of those touristy stuff so this visit was more of dining experience, lots of picture taking and buy lots of pralines in one of the river streets candy stores. So old fashion candy making and always love to watch their workers made them ! It also doesn't hurt that they gave away free samples :). 

This wrinkle free and uber comfortable maxi dress is perfect outfit for the day. It is like wearing a yoga pants but in a dress version in granite stripes. Lightweight and I actually feel sexy wearing it because it hugs my body just enough from top to mid section and flares out a tad for ease in walking. I got lots of compliments and a perfect way to show my tan arms. The granite stripe. It was on super sale from Loft which makes me even love it even more. The wedges are as much as comfortable to walk in as I remember. We didn't do lots of walking this time so it didn't bother me a bit. 
 River street

Chocolate covered apples. This delight is seriously huge and heavy, it can knock your head and hurts :)

more truffles please and my favorite pecan pralines(the one on the top right corner)

The best shrimp sandwich & crab/corn/potato soup. I ate it all ! 

 The bridge that connects Savannah to South Carolina.

 Cruising the city is also a good idea. My son said next time we come, he wants to stay in that hotel you see at the far end left. Not a bad idea.

 Trolley rides are everywhere in Savannah, they do tours around the city.

 One of the historical structure(Kehoe House) in the city.

I am mesmerized by these charming & at the same time spooky Spanish Moss hanging from huge oak trees that were all over the city.

Can't leave the city without trying their horse drawn carriage ride.

Savannah is one of those places that is unique, old soul, charming, fascinating, beautiful and rich of history at every turn.

I hope your week is off to a great start.
Thank you from the heart.
xoxo
Sam

  17. I have never been to Georgia although my family lived there before I was born. Anyway, it does look beautiful with a cute little charm like you were talking about. I hope you had a fun time:) Love your look, also. Don't you just love those perfect pieces of clothing that hug your body but isn't too inappropriately tight?
