Last night was the Tribeza fashion show to end fashion week in Austin. I was able to get all dolled up in a new custom Beth Elis dress and go and enjoy the best & “keeping Austin weird” side of fashion here in my hometown. Met up with old friends and made a few new ones. It was a nice welcome home after being gone for a week. And what girl doesn’t like a new dress once in a while?
I love Charleston. I can see why so many others do too. We ate at Magnolia’s and it was devine. Orange buttermilk pancakes…I’d go back for those alone. Then we went to se the Yorktown. A fun piece of history. I’ll be back on Tuesday morning before I fly home…Can’t wait.
Today was a beach day. Tybee island was the destination. After laying out in the sun for a few hours we headed to The North Beach Grill to eat. I can’t say enough good things about it. Fried plantains with fresh salsa, fish tacos and the most amazing sweet potato fries with a balsalmic/honey reduction. If you’re ever on Tybee Isalnd be sure to make it there. And tonight I’m off to the Savannah Jazz Festival. More to come….
I can see why it’s easy to fall in love with Savannah. My first taste of the city came in the form of Shrimp and Grits with a sherry cream sauce, heavy sea air, the history of pirates, ghosts haunting the buildings along the waterfron…and if that’s wasn’t enough to discover on a first night how about some freshly pulled salt water taffy?
Crossing the Misissippi again. I was here last year on my way to Chattanooga. This year I’m on my way to Savannah.
I’ve wanted to go there for years and can’t wait to see the see the squares, eat the food and see the Spanish moss hanging. More pictures to come.
See you along I 20 🙂
