the Savannah 3-day getaway wraps up today with a peek at what to wear to dinner in Savannah. yes, every trip includes at least one fine dining experience. however, my sweet friend and i dined out every meal. how can you not in a town loaded with fantastic restaurants? my favorites? i’ll share my top 5 restaurants later in the post. but i have to be honest; it’s hard to narrow down the list. there are soooo many culinary delights found in this city.
but what to wear when it’s hot, yet you still want to look chic? that’s when a dress comes into play. y’all know i love me a summer dress. every season i’m on the hunt for one or two dresses that will keep me cool when the temps heat up. and they’re perfect for taking along on vacay as they’re easy to pack.
on my last trip to Atlanta to see one of my kiddos, i bopped into the mall for a little shopping spree. it was a delight to visit a store in person. there’s nothing better than window shopping for a little inspiration. it’s heaven to touch and feel fabrics and leisurely stroll through the store, taking note of what’s available. lately, Banana Republic is a go-to store. every time i step in, i walk out with at least one or two items in my shopping bag. this shopping expedition was no different. once i spied this pinkilicious dress, i knew it was perfect to wear to dinner in Savannah. and it’s my favorite color – pink! although this dress comes in four colors and a midi length. the fabric is lightweight with a crinkled texture. and it’s fully lined with a swing fit. since i’m headed to dinner, i added statement earrings (old, similar here) and a pearl necklace (old, similar here) for a little glam. white sandals with a low heel (old, similar here and here) and a clutch handbag (old, similar here and here) are the finishing touches for a summery look.
this laid-back restaurant is a favorite of mine. every time i’m in Savannah, i make certain to book a reservation. it’s unpretentious yet hip and cool. plus, they whip up some mighty fine food. this restaurant is known for its all-day brunch. but dinner is just fine by me.
what can you say about a restaurant that gets it? from the ambiance to the service to the cocktails to the entreé to the dessert, this meal was perfection. fresh ingredients are locally sourced, but it’s their interpretation of southern cuisine that’s to die for. guess what? the house is haunted…
rooted in tradition, this establishment is a must-see for so many reasons. built in 1771 by James Habersham Jr., the mansion evolved into a bank, law office, book store, then suffered neglect. in 1992 the William Balish Family restored this grand dame and turned her into an iconic restaurant. don’t forget to visit their famously haunted bar, The Downstairs Bar. it’s spooky and sexy rolled into one.
if you’re looking for a romantic spot with white tablecloths and oodles of southern hospitality, then you don’t want to miss this Savannah destination. the service is seamless and the food divine.
this restaurant isn’t technically located in Savannah; it’s on Tybee Island, but it’s worth visiting. if you love a low country boil, then you’ll love this restaurant.
a few snapshots of our Ghost Tour that started in a spooky cemetery. but seriously, Ghost Tours gives an account of Savannah’s history which starts pre-Revolutionary War.
