What I Wore On My Vacation To Savannah

I always love to do a fashion review of what I've worn on my vacation.  The main reason is that I see too many "What to pack for vacation" posts that include the blandest clothing possible.  People tend to want to pack light so they include a lot of neutrals and simple clothes that they can mix and match.  I'm the total opposite.  Yes, I want to pack light too, but I also know I'm going to be photographed a lot and those pictures will end up on Facebook, in a scrapbook, and will be seen for years to come, so I want to look good.

When packing for Savannah I kept two things in mind:  Comfort and Style.  I wanted to take advantage of the photogenic beauty of the Savannah area so I chose clothes that were romantic and reminded me of the old south.  But, I also knew it would be warm, humid, and I'd be walking a lot so I had to pack for comfort as well.

First, I want to show you an outfit I wore in Savannah that I haven't shown you yet,  then I'll review the rest of the outfits previously posted.

This is a dress I received from Stitch Fix and previously shown in THIS POST.  It's a very comfortable dress to wear as the fabric is lightweight and loose.  The sleeveless style is great for layering and also cool when I choose to wear it alone.  In the picture below it was early in the morning so it was a bit cool.  I wore a thin blush cardigan that could easily fit in my tote when the temperatures increased later in the day.

I started the day with black sandals but I had a pair of sneakers in my bag in case my feet hurt later in the day.   Here is the dress with sandals:


And here is the dress with sneakers.  I obviously prefer the dress with sandals, but I'm happy it looks good with sneakers too.



I carried this large straw tote all four days I was in Savannah.  Most tourists carried back packs, but I find those annoying to get on and off every time I need something.  Yes, this bag got heavy and cumbersome at times, but I'm glad I used it because it literally held everything I needed to get through the day.





And now to review all the outfits I wore the rest of my vacation.  A link to the original post is included at the bottom of each picture.

My princess maxi dress by Disney.  I wore this to the Tybee Island.  It was perfect for a non-swimming day at the beach because the wind lifted up the long dress so it didn't get wet or sandy.

A black floral maxi:  this dress just screams "Savannah" to me!  To keep the packing light, I picked only one sun hat from my collection:  this black straw hat.  It matched the majority of my outfits, that's why it was chosen.

  2. I love that printed dress, it's so nice with the blush cardigan! :)

    I think colourful prints like these are good pieces to travel with as you can wear them with so many other colours - just pick a colour out of the print! :)

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend! We had a busy day yesterday so a more relaxing day today is planned :)

  3. I am just like you Amy. I can't handle the bland, neutral outfits that everyone markets for travel. I understand wanting to be smart about the clothing they take on vacation, but I still want to look my best.
    I love that you enjoy wearing so much color and dresses even on vacation!!
    XOXO

    1. Thanks Jodie! I know, right? I recently saw someone's post of what she packed for a trip to Italy and it was all jeans/sneaker type stuff for comfort. I was like "Are you kidding me? In Italy? With all that gorgeous architecture to photograph in the background and you want to be see in jeans, sweatshirts and sneakers?" haha! Not me!

  5. The dresses are all gorgeous and fit the surroundings so well! I love the first one especially because it's my favorite lengths in dresses and I love the cut.

    When packing for vacations, I usually bring my favorite "regular" clothes with me and maybe add a couple of "special occasion" outfits (depending on where I am going.) But at least my regular clothes are pretty, I think, so it's not like I run around in sweats. (I only wear those when painting the house lol). Wish I could bring myself to wear more dresses though...

    1. Thanks Ellie, I must admit that although that dress is the less beautiful or striking as the rest, it's the one I get the most use out of because it's so wearable and comfortable. I like how you pack! I think I generally pack like you do for vacations, but I went a little more dressy for this vacation because of the location.
