Savannah Weekend // pt.2

Here we go with the last blog post about Savannah, or at least for now.... I'm hoping to sneak away to Savannah again with my handsome man sometime soon. Anyways, back to this trip!!

The nights in Savannah were beautiful and the food was even better. On Friday night we did some sightseeing and stumbled upon a corner restaurant for a drink but after seeing the menu we knew we had to have dinner. I had the BEST Shrimp and Grits I've ever had in my life and after a cup of coffee we enjoyed a show at the Old Savannah Theater. It really was such a fun night! 

Saturday night was an entire different world in downtown Savannah! It was loud and busy, and after searching for a VERY long time, we finally found a parking spot. It was conveniently across the street from an amazing pizza spot and we were craving pizza. NY style, as big as your face, and cheeeeaaap. Perfection! Add a beer and some live music down the street and we had another fun night!

^^ this pesto...... Oh. My.
the waitress told us that their homemade pesto was incredible, so we clearly asked for a sample.
& I might have had some dreams about it since we've been home.

^^ this sweet little horse named, Guinness, turned and posed for me!

Sunday was the perfect shady day for last minute sightseeing and some souvenir shopping. 
We walked down the beautiful streets lined with the gorgeous live oak trees before our ride home. 

Such a wonderful trip and I loved every second of making memories with my Mom.
We are thinking that next year's trip will be in Charlotte....?
Any fun places you all would like to recommend?? We are all ears!

Fall Neutrals.

One of my favorite trends for every fall would definitely be the warm neutrals. I love the cozy and easy style that the earth tones create. I'm also loving the amazing weather that we are having right now! It feels like Fall has almost arrived and I'm praying that it is here to stay, especially after a super hot weekend in Savannah. Greenville was so kind to welcome us with an amazing cool breeze and I was more than happy to pull out this neutral sweater. It is such a great piece for the fall transition months even if the sleeves need to be pushed up a little.

Sights + Seats // Tequila's Town

I tried my best to plan several surprises for my Mom as a birthday gift during our weekend in Savannah but I’m not that great at surprises because I get too excited and usually spill the beans so I tried my best to hold them in during the weekend. One of the surprises over the weekend was dinner plans at a highly rated Mexican restaurant since we both LOVE anything that includes salsa and margaritas! While we were searching for lunch on Friday (the day that I had planned the surprise dinner) we turned the corner and what was staring us straight in the face? Yup, you guessed it, Tequila's Town. And what did Mom say pretty soon after we spotted the fun Mexican restaurant? Ding, ding, ding.... right again, we should go eat at the Mexican restaurant we saw earlier! Of course I caved and told her that was the spot for her surprise dinner which instantly caused my mom to burst with laughter. We both decided that we couldn’t wait till dinner because we were starving and we could eat chips and salsa for breakfast, lunch & dinner any day. So, we went. And it was amazing!

still trying to perfect the art of selfies with my big camera...

Savannah Weekend // pt.1

So now is the time for me to bombard you with photos from the best Mom/Daughter weekend in Savannah!! It was so much fun to spend time with my mom in this fun city. It has a lot of the same qualities that Charleston, SC has but also has its own personal kind of charm. The layout was a little tricky but all the winding streets of history and picture perfect southern charm were so beautiful. Here are a few of our favorite parts of the trip....

^^ Rooftop at the Cotton Sail Hotel

^^ garden at the Juliett Gordon Low's birthplace
& the home below

& yes, there are more. Part two will happen later this week!

Mom's weekend littles.

The weekend in Savannah was perfection!! This was the first trip with my mom since I've been married and it was so wonderful to have a little weekend of girl time. I'm so thankful that I can call that sweet woman one of my best friends! Here are a few of the little things that made our weekend so wonderful..... 

enjoying the art of sharing jewelry all weekend // all the laughs while watching the dancing to live music on Barnard Street // learning the awesome news that you can walk around in Savannah with a drink in your hand // finding the best sushi we've ever had in Hilton Head // and then finding the best pizza later that night in Savannah // trying to surprise mom with dinner only for her to pick the same place for lunch, at least I know what she likes, right? 

It was a wonderful weekend full of delicious food, new memories
and a lot of laughs! More fun from our weekend coming for ya tomorrow!!

leopard + lace.

Honestly, I'm a little scared of leopard print. A belt, shoes, scarf, maaaaybe a blouse... but that's about it. So, my stomach did a little flip when I saw that the fashion trend this week with Living in Color Style and Stylin in St. Louis was leopard print! But, I do love these shoes... they are comfortable and always add just enough sas to an outfit. I thought I'd bravely add an extra dose of sas with the belt. Life on the edge, right? One thing that I'm most definitely NOT afraid of is lace. I thought I would wear something I'm very comfortable in so the animal print accents would feel more natural. I'm happy to say that I would gladly wear this outfit around town, and that is exactly what I plan on doing soon! And let's just talk about this delicious fall weather we are having in Greenville this week. Loving it so much!!
