A couple of weeks ago I was able to fulfill a longtime desire of experiencing Savannah, Georgia, in all it’s charming glory, for the first time. And honestly, staying at The Gastonian only made the visit that much more special. Located near Forsyth Park, the historic inn is made up of 17 unique and intimate guest rooms, in two adjoining mansions built in 1868. In between wandering the stunning city squares, hopping on romantic carriage rides, snacking on sumptuous pecan pralines, and embarking on hauntingly scary ghost tours, we were pampered back at the B&B with family-styled breakfasts in the mornings, hors d’oeuvres and wine in the afternoons, and desserts and cordials in the evenings. Y’all, if that isn’t the epitome of Southern hospitality and charm . . .
After consecutive weekends of travel and a long work week, the only thing I’m looking forward to this weekend is laying horizontal and cozying up to a really good book. Honestly, TGIF . . .
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen looked to the streets of New York City for inspiration for Textile‘s fall collection. Each look is styled to ‘je ne sais quoi” excellence with simple tees, knits with leather elbow patches, and denim with exposed zippers. Dress each look up or down with a pair of heels or sneakers and you’re set. The best part is that we won’t have to wait until fall to get our hands on these essentials – the collection is hitting stores early next week!
